Poker Mania

As I prepare for this weekend's tournament, I've been reading some of the articles out there on poker and something struck me! There really IS poker mainia!

There is a slated new poker movie which will feature a WSOP story line.

I'm reading more and more about 'charity' events being held in my area, and they are getting lots of print in the papers. How long before will it become perfectly legal and be able to run outsite of the 'charity' umbrella? ( here an orgainization has to have a 'charity' license, and can get up to 4 a year ).

The tournament I'm entered in this weekend is one such event. They expect ( and cap it at ) 100 player's for this. Should be an interesting play....

Don't get me wrong! I'm all for it! The more 'charity' events that are run, will eventually turn the game into a mainstream happening..... can legal changes be far behind?
