yep pirate i'm kind of hoping for the same thing.
that it might put a flame under the behinds of other state politicians to not be left out.
i know california
originally imbrassed the idea of a poker pool with other states through nevada. but typical greed took over and last i heard they didnt want the operations of sites to be anywhere but inside the state. not to mention how strong the indian casino lobby is here.
personally i want to compete on a world level or at least nationally. i think we're all tired of seeing the same faces in every tourney.
