a lot of hype has been generated surrounding the above that our Lovely Man In Charge is going to sign in the next couple of weeks. It's put out a lot of panic for online poker players and for certain online transaction websites such as Firepay who is pretty much cutting support of their service to do transactions once the bill is signed.

cardplayer.com has someone on their staff that wrote two very good articles about the smoke and mirrors surrounding this bill and what it Actually Means as opposed to what everyone thinks. She wrote one article about it [from a federal perspective] and then followed up on it witih an article about it [from a state perspective]. There are a lot of cookies on this one, so if you care about such things, deny them all and you'll still be able to read the articles.

time for bed. tonight i lost $60ish dollars because i made a "mendel is tired call" with top pair and a straight draw when it was clear the other player had a straight. But then i won it back plus another ten dollars because i had a K flush to someone's Q flush. it's annoying when i lose money because i make a dumb mistake.

all while i pretty much finished Squid. it has some tempo/sync issues to work out before i feel comfortable releasing to the public.

Evidently partypoker is one of the sites not working with us anything anymore, they've frozen both Travis and my accounts -_-. Tried changing location to canada, didn't work. *sigh*

that sucks. :(

PR still seems to be going strong. you should go play there, assuming that NeTeller hasn't backed out of their whole deal too.

But if you want to wait until some of the dust settles, i understand that too.

If you do sign up for PR, use me as a referral. :)
