The Poker Players Alliance is finally stepping up there efforts for regulation of the online poker community now that the horrific Bush Administration is finally leaving office and a poker player can finally take the seat of the President of the United States of America. So this week the Poker Players Alliance decided to take up some room in three of the most popular newspapers for lawmakers in Washington D.C. and advertise the need for government regulation of the online poker community. The newspapers that had the advertisements were “The Hill” which had the ad printed on Tuesday, “The Politico” which had the ad printed on Wednesday and “Roll Call” which had the ad printed on Thursday.
The purpose for the placement of the advertisement is to have the government step in and regulate the online poker community and to prevent any online poker cheating which happened on the online poker rooms Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker. The advertisements were placed after the segment of online poker cheating was seenÂ on the popular news show “60 Minutes”, so the Poker Players Alliance decided to take the chance and show policy makers that to prevent this from happening again the government would need to step in and regulate. Another purpose to the advertisement is to hopefully legalize online poker at the least.
Below you can see for yourself the advertisement that was placed in the newspapers by the Poker Players Alliance in Washington D.C.
