    Makes perfect sense to me. This is word of mouth on steroids lol. People that surf the net play online poker as well as go outside to play poker at the casinos. Now if only i can stay as cool as Phil Ivey, i might do better lol.

    This is something 'special interest' groups, such as casino operators on native reservations, need to understand. Online gambling markets itself so successfully it introduces new players to the gambling world at large. It's a good thing for everybody in the industry, including B&M casinos.

    If they did their homework, not only would they stop campaigning against online gambling, they would be far more inclined to put their weight behind it's regulation.
