      In the past couple years poker has taken its hit,but i believe all for the better of

      the game.It will bring regulations in the U.S and hopefully regulations in

      Canada also.I believe poker will be back on its feet again in 2013.Also with the

      ISPT at Wembley Stadium in London supposedly happening in May 31 st of

      that year.

      It will be the biggest tournament to ever be held and make history.

      Also with the WSOP making a amendment to the ruling of celebrating when the

      action is on the last player to act is only good for poker and its about time.It

      will make it more fun to watch for the fans and spectators.They wanna see

      whats going on in the players mind and only makes for more drama which is

      good for tv and most of all poker.In order for poker to gain momentum

      and excel at getting bigger to the masses it needs to evolve and innovate all

      the time.When fans and spectators were allowed to see players whole cards it

      was a huge turning point for the game.Now if only we could listen to whats

      happening and the players thinking in their minds that would be somethin.

      I would love to hear whats the thoughts with other mebers of the cummunity.

      So fire away.

      Firstly, when people recommend you to use "spaces", by "spaces" we mean spaces next to full stops and commas, not spaces between lines. But it's a start.

      On topic: will the US poker legislation go through by next year? I doubt it. And if it will, do they segregate their player pool or do they let others in as well? Internet poker has drawn immense amount of money out of this country in the past, why would US goverment want that.

      The trend seems to be towards segregating player pools of fishy countries, Spain, Italy etc. So provided that we don't see big and positive surprises my guess is poker is going to be deeper in the hole in 2013.

      Nice poem, Johnny, but your lack of rhymes let you down.

      Poker regulation is an interesting thing,
      The government can use it to buy more bling.
      With taxes and licenses and laws, oh my!
      The potential for profit is really sky high.

      That's why I believe it is inevitable,
      No legislation in the US would be terrible.
      Though 2013 seems too much to hope,
      I think 2014 US laws would be dope.

      However it will likely be intrastate first,
      No global player pool - that's just the worst.
      But the bonus for poker overall is too great
      To keep US online poker just intrastate.

      So maybe one day we'll have '05 once more
      When fishes weren't 3-betting you out of the door
      We'll have to wait and see what takes place
      But we'll still be pokering with a smile on our face.

      A few minutes, don't worry I didn't spend too much time not working (just in case OnkelHotte sees this thread :D )

      It's a poem but we can turn it into a rap battle:

      Yo this is a story all 'bout how
      My life got flipped, turned upside down
      So I'd like to take a minute, just sit and rest,
      While I tell you how they banned online poker in the US

      Omg this topic is pretty insane,
      Our admin has skillz which arent to blame,
      Boy, it sounds fun so I'll give it a shot,
      And dont give a f*ck I'm successful or not.

      The good game of poker will always be here.
      Mistakes of fishes will still cost them dear.
      And if you desire some cash outta fish,
      Just table select and ready your dish!

      Poker is money and this is a fact.
      So big heads of poker for sure will react.
      Masses of people will get sucked in.
      Because many are gamblers right from within.

      But f*ck, I'm not educated enough.
      To tell what happens tommorow is tough.
      No matter the outcome I do know one thing,
      It would be cool to see more players in ring!

      Just listen to this music and read this :]
      I created these a long time ago when I was blogging in one forum.




      I sit and wait
      does these queens contemplate my fate
      and do they know
      the flops where we GO
      and when we need to fold...
      Cos ive been told
      that ten high flops lets their crowns unfold
      so when im sitting in my chair
      Dollars flying through the air
      And I feel my 'roll is dead
      Im loving aces instead

      And through it all, they offer me protection
      A lot of cash and affection
      Whether Im right or wrong
      and down the waterfall,
      wherever they may take me
      I know that variance wont break me
      when i come to CALL... they wont forsake me
      Im loving aces instead

      When Im feeling weak
      And my PAIR walks down through another street
      I look into the deck
      and I know ill always be blessed with them
      And as the feeling grows
      It gives another Ace to my hopes
      And when my opp is dead
      Im loving aces instead

      And through it all, they offer me protection
      Lots of cash and affection
      Whether Im right or wrong
      and down the waterfall,
      wherever they may take me
      I know that variance wont break me
      when i come to CALL they wont forsake me
      Im loving aces instead.




      Sorry that this is not related to the topic, but thought I'd share. :f_cool:
