Poker in bars may remain illegal (Tribune-Eagle, 06/28/07)
“Starting Sunday, business owners across Wyoming will no longer get in trouble if their customers engage in a friendly game of Texas Hold ‘Em. But one local bar owner said that despite the change to state law, he will still tell his customers to put away their cards. That’s because the city’s code appears to be at odds with the state law, said Dan Hatanelas, owner of D.T.’s Liquor Mart.”

Harvard Study Finds Fears About Online Gambling Unsupported (PokerNews, 06/28/07)
“In what is thought to be the first comprehensive, empirical study of online-gambling behaviors, Harvard Medical School’s Division of Addictions characterizes a majority of online gamblers’ behavior as “moderate,” concluding that its findings do not support previously-made claims that online gambling has “an inherent propensity” to cause problem or “excessive” gambling.”

“The National League of Poker (NLOP™), the leading Free poker site for US-compliant poker game-play on the web, announced today it will make its national debut at the Gaming Life Expo at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, July 5th through 8th, during the World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event. NLOP is the only online poker play site that has been allowed to have a presence at the Expo – a stark contrast to last year’s event – where over a dozen online poker sites, including Party Poker and Poker Stars, had significant presence.”
