The 2009 World Series Of Poker Just Started

The 2009 World Series of Poker just started with the $40,000 No-Limit Hold’em Event, at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Among the poker legends taking a shot at the first WSOP bracelet event of 2009 were Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan, Phil Ivey, Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Chris Moneymaker, John Juanda, and 2008 WSOP Main Event champion Peter Eastgate.

Phil Hellmuth’s entrance was typically late into the event, as he showed up well into the fourth level of play, nothing unusual about that.

Peter Eastgate had a bad start of WSOP 2009 when he was eliminated by Charles Lehr on day 1.
The complete 2009 schedule as announced will again include the much discussed delay for the Main Event final table, with 2009's eventual "November Nine" slated to return to the Rio on November 7th for the prestigious title.

The 2009 World Series of Poker features 57 bracelet events spread over seven weeks of action from late May to mid-July.

Good luck to all players in WSOP 2009.

Barney Frank To Introduce Internet Gambling Legislation On Wednesday

Two and a half years have passed since the restrictive UIGEA legislation came into force in the U.S.

But this afternoon a bill is sent that would reform the law so as to resemble the old model.

Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) will hold a press conference to unveil legislation that will enable Americans to bet online and put an end to an inappropriate interference with their personal freedom.

Currently, the government could use the money to pay for some of the important general expenses.

My view is not that there should be an intensive taxation, but, like so many other legitimate activities of a smaller tax rate, "said Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

The bill would "create an exemption to the UIGEA for operators that are licensed and regulated. UIGEA, which was enacted in 2006, restricts the use of the payments system for Americans who seek the freedom to gamble online."

Only 9 out of the 22 poker networks currently offer games for the Americans, so it can potentially be a profitable model for the United States. But according to Barney Frank, the economic issue is not the most important.

Lets get US players back at the poker tables at all poker rooms.
