Subject: State Run On Line Poker
For the life of me, I can't understand why no state will offer on-line
poker. Granted, the UIGEA or whtever its called is now law, but
it seems at least some of our lawmakers want that overturned.

Given the state of the economy and the need for cash right now,
why not get the ball rolling ? US players would flock to a local
on-line poker site.

I heard ramblings about California looking into this. I hope it's
true.
It wouldn't change the potential for cheating but it would make it
easier to deposit, withdraw and hopefully, get the fishies playing.

The states already offer keno, lotto, scratch cards and daily numbers.
Why Not Poker ??

It is NOT easy to run an online poker site well. Governments would lose
it all to the hackers.

They could contract it out to a private firm.

UIGEA allows a state to have online poker, if they only allow people from
within the same state. That is the state's decision. I know my state
could sure use some cash (California), but I don't know how likely that is.
