Skillbet poker legal in the US? 0

Hey guys!

Has anyone ever heard of this room before? I received an email from an affiliate saying they give free 50$ BR (but it's actually 15$ to start with). I haven't signed up yet because there was a bug with their facebook thing, but the sites seems pretty new and it says "BETA" somewhere.

But what surprised me the most is that they claim to be 100% legal in the US. Anyone have more info about that?

There was a thread about this the other day I think it had skillbet in the name so try searching for that thread on the little forum search thingy. It is legal in the US. Its not proper poker, its duplicate poker. You and other person/people, have the same hand. I'm not sure whether the flop turn and river come the same on each persons game. But basically this makes it not a gambling game, but instead a skill game.

Oh, sorry didn't think about searching before I posted!

So the only legal poker site isn't "real" poker? Confused I hope for the sake of US players that they will be able to play online legally soon enough...

It's good to be Canadian Tongue

I've been trying to find a NDB for that site, so I can try it out and do a proper review of it.

Based on that I'm not interested. When I first started reading the post I was getting a bit excited then, boom you destroyed me with the pertinant data. Damn, I need something to happen here in the U.S. before to long.

I didn't like Cake and Carbon leaves me wondering some things at times. I don't care what the critics say. I liked playing at FullTilt

Green, i actually think most of all agree that FUll Tilt POker had the best poker software out there but too bad it's gone for good...

And yes, cake and merge are the only networks that allow US players for the moment.

i check this site last time...it seems that it has a different kind of game because you and your opponents will play against bot with the same whole and the one who plays better i think wins....I havent check really how to play but i was able to see the demo...this is a whole new different thing....

If you stick with playing again in FT probably you will wait for ever.
Since you like playing poker you will have to compromise at least for the moment
and play to a site that is open to US

No matter how much US players want to play online poker, i doubt skillbet'
is going to get good traffic.

Why take an idea that didnt work and repeat it ? Smile
