    Maybe so, and it will be better than nothing, but they will find a way to suck most of the fun out of it, no doubt.

    Either way I will be happy to see it come back. I am concerned as to how they will tax it. If they tax your winnings at almost 50% (as they do with most "gambling" winnings and if (like many states) they don't account for losses (making the number always black and much bigger), then except for the very, very best players, online poker becomes little more than a hobby of varying expense.

    Hopefully they pass something soon before everything goes on some crappy state by state system.

    ahh "land of the free", maybe one day us Europeans will be able to experience the same kind of freedom. if pokerstars does end up opening up to US players again it will most likely be run like the french site with ridiculous rake and huge tax. i think it will be a hell of a long time before its even close to how things where. at least you'll be able to get your money though. i know someone who's been waiting 8 months from carbon.

    Unfortunately, the state to state system is by far the likeliest to lead to poker in the vast majority of US. And even that will take a couple years to really get off the ground at a minimum
