Tick, Tick, Tick…

November 26, 2008

It’s official, 60 Minutes is finally airing it’s long awaited piece on online poker. Entitled The Cheaters, the piece will ostensibly focus on the AP/UB scandal, but knowing 60 Minutes (and as a former CBS News employee, I have some insight into the people behind the show), chances are it will have repercussions for the entire industry.

Might it turn out to be a good thing in the long run? If it leads to regulation and eventual legalization of the industry, the answer is yes. In the short term, however, my guess is there will be some folks who are, to put it kindly, less than thrilled with how online poker and the site operators will be portrayed.

So what can you as a loyal online poker player do? Watch the story and then, write your congressmen and senators about your position on the UIGEA and why it needs to be overturned. For more info, be sure to check out the PPA’s website.
