If it is until then, then it is not a big deal. And this for the recreational players. Cause i doubt the professional ones will be staying there, if they cant play online.

I don´t understand this matter. Poker online is running since 1980, more or less. And in this forty years the legal criterious of the countries could not establish an agreement between them about this activity. It can be explained by the ethics or moral differences between cultures. But the fiscal criterion should be better defined at this stage of events, don´t you think? Each country that aims to define a regulation starts from scratch. Have no sense!

It takes a long time to reopen online poker in the United States of America and over two months and a half is 9 years from the black Friday. The time has passed pretty quickly and americans players i think they were very disappointed with this. Next year some of them will play again.

I hope they keep re-openning online poker in the states, so maybe it will affect local decision makers and get online poker bavck to Israel. Online poker could be very easily be managed so it will do very little harm if any. I'm okay with poker played under governing eyes that keep everything on the legal and safe side.

As I said, I still not understand what is the real Problem. If I not mistaken all the countries, less in islamics, has some kind of gambling for money: casinos, sports bets, lottery... But in the same countries the poker online is taken like a special matter. In Argentina, my country, there were many rumors, even bills, but for now there is no regulation
