Two men from Moorpark recently launched an online poker site and the California Attorney General's Office is right on it.
Is it legal? That's the question. A spokeswoman for Attorney General Kamala Harris said the state statute pertaining to online poker generally says "playing for something of value is illegal."
Jonathan Aiwazian, Cafrino.com co-founder, believes the site is operating legally. He was working as a biomedical engineer when Black Friday hit and the sites he'd been playing online poker on were shut down. He teamed up with his friend who was working as an aerospace engineer, fellow co-founder Sean Stavropoulos.
