Till I read it from a reliable source, this to me is just gossip.

First time hearing this. Would love for legalization to take place but wouldn't happen this quickly.

Yea I cannot remember how many people at my local 1/2 have talked about Phil Ivey being broke. If the greatest player of this generation is broke then the game is too much of a stalemate.

Being shut down or legalized is a big difference Lol hopefully at some point it wil be legalized but there could be all kinds of restrictions to who and what you can play. I would suppose it would be tracked much harder than it used to be. The IRS loves to get their piece!

If USA come back to online poker... there will be so much more online poker.. more value on tournaments and bigger tournaments more action .. so it will be the best for online poker.. hope that happens

I think we are moving towards legal online poker in the USA, especially after the sports betting being passed

Well it does go slow... but I sure think that it will pass online poker in the USA.. and it will be legal.. just it needs time to get things done over there... and after black friday... after USA getting banned from Online poker... the Online poker community took big hit and still hasnt recovered.

It could have been about New Hampshire, they have recently went through some bills to make it the next (6th?) state to regulate. I hope more states grow so the online player pool will be worth it. Was pretty upset when I heard PA (my state) may be keeping their online rooms in-state. Still waiting to see what actually happens!

I don't think so ! I think the DDOS attacks on the dark poker sites are the work of US government who's want them out of the US market.
