The Fight Goes to Washington D.C.

Share this
The WSOP has played down to nine and the results are available on every online poker site; the final table action takes place in November but there is very important poker action taking place this week in Washington D.C.   Remember the $30 Million in online poker funds that was frozen by the New York Court recently?  How many more people would have participated in the WSOP if their funds weren’t frozen?  An estimated 10 Million Americans play online poker, are you one of them?  Playing poker is not a crime!  Are you willing to stand by and allow the real crime to happen?
The Poker Players Alliance is fighting for our right to play online poker.  Poker’s superstars are on their way to Washington D.C. to stand up for online poker, will you?  Over 340,000 people have signed the petition to be presented to President Obama during National Poker Week, July 19th – 25th.  

Poker isn’t going to drift silently into a setting sun.  When online poker funds are no longer confiscated by illegal procedures, how big can the WSOP or other land based tournaments really be?  Sign the petition!
