Can (K)alifornia ruin online poker b4 it starts
Many of you may already know but for those that don't the Peoples Rep. of Kalifornia is getting closer to actually coming up with a plan to allow and regulate online poker within its borders. There was talk of teaming up with the state of Nevada but im sure my states greed chased the silver state away.
My issue here is the states track record to ruin everything they touch. Whether its over regulation, fees or taxation, it seems they just cant help themselves. Crippling the horse racing industry to stomping on small card houses while boosting and collecting political donations from the indian casinos
I can just see an average Joe $5 holdem tourney which would usually carry a $0.50 fee become a $1.00 or more. This twenty percent plus fee will of coarse chase away those that use their grey matter upstairs. There would have to be mucho fish to offset the extra dime.
Would ring games resemble the take of a brick and motar fee but without the overhead. Living here all my life this would not surprise me since the once golden state bear looks more like rotting roadkill.
