Texas Holdem for Fun and Profit

It's been a while since the last post on the Low Limit Holdem blog and certainly a lot has happened since last year. The biggest elephant in the room is of course the weasel-like ban on funding internet gambling sites from US sources that was tacked onto an unrelated port security bill.

Since that bill went into law late last year there are only a handful of reputable poker sites available to play at for US players Full Tilt, UltimateBet, PokerStars and Bodog Poker are among the best known sites still serving US players.and the major funding players (Firepay and Neteller) are gone from the US market. In their place are sites like Epassporte, MyWebATM, and Click2Pay.

The short and happy news is that online poker isn't going away, but the definite bad sucking news is that our legislators are engaged in some strange operation foot-bullet to make playing poker online less secure and less regulated. Take a cue from the UK and actually regulate internet gambling (including poker) and use the funds to improve the country and to provide help for the small minority of players who actually have gambling problems.

Rest assured, whatever happens with online poker lowlimitholdem.com will continue to exist and provide poker strategy, advice and discussion.
