US Poker Rooms
As a result of Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act signed in 2006 many online poker rooms stopped accepting US players and any wagers from US residents are illegal in case the gambling activity violates the local laws. This law makes poker sites liable for accepting any funds connected with illegal gambling activities. Thus with the aim to avoid any legal problems most poker rooms closed their doors for American visitors. However, there are still online casinos those that offer slots games, blackjack computer simulators and roulette games to US players.
Online poker rooms listed here still accept US wagers and provide the number of deposit methods available for US players. Choosing any of the top US-friendly poker rooms you are able to make deposits and withdraw funds from the United States and play online poker legally. In addition, most of these poker rooms provide Mac-compatible software which is a great advantage for US players. Remember that at all US poker rooms you will meet the players from Europe, Asia, South America etc. while PlayersOnly is open for Americans only.
Whether he likes it or not, a man's character is stripped bare at the poker table; if the other poker players read him better than he does, he has only himself to blame. Unless he is both able and prepared to see himself as others do, flaws and all, he will be a loser in poker, as in life.
