    It is pretty popular. Our pay TV channel has a dedicated channel just for poker buffs plus ESPN and others always have a session or two as well.
    Have a wonderful day

    Really.... That is very surprising.... Without reading that story, one would not think there would be a huge market for online poker players there....

    Are they working on regulating the online poker rooms offhsore or are they trying to get legislation passed in congress to be able to run online poker rooms in South Africa.
