The Finnish poker players are among the world's best, such as Future
Patrik Antonius, Ilari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies, Juha Helppi etc. But they might experience some difficulty playing online poker within their own country in the future.
The Finnish politicians are preparing a new gaming legislation.
According to an interview with Jouni Laiho, the working committee
is ready to take more drastic steps. Initially it is a tight ban on
advertising of poker companies and a ban on bank transfers to poker sites.
A ban on Internet access to poker sites are also an option, which has also been practiced in Italy.
