Is it legal to play online poker in the US at the moment?
It is not very simple to answer this question right now. Lawyers, politicians and the poker players are all interpreting the law in different ways.
But now a bunch of poker rooms and the poker players of the US have teamed up to get some stragiht answers from the President of the US, Barack Obama.
At the moment they are running a huge campaign in the USA to protect the peoples right to play poker online. In the campaign people are asked to send an email to the Obama administrations so called "Transition Team". So the goal of the campaign is to get as many people as possible to send an email to the Obama administration and in this way force them to deal with the issue at hand.
