Bits -n- Pieces

Poker News:

The House of Representatives, in what seems to be an election year, grandstand move to get voter support, passed a bill which will make it harder or impossible to play poker online. There are two main parts of the bill. The first deals with the banking side. It would make it illegal for US financial institutions to facilitate money going to or coming from online gambling sites. The second would force ISPs to block online gambling sites.

Fortunately, the Senate is not inclined at this time to take up similar legislation, so the bill will languish for the time being.
