I think it is all just a big waste of time. Americand should still be able to play if they search hard enough. Again though I am not concerning myself too greatly due to the fact that I am not the lobster heading to the boiling pot. I just figure that they should be able to open a bank account outside of the US say Canada or somewhere and transfer cash that way. As for what the pro's sign I am supprised they haven't all voted for the bill. I would if I were in their shoes. That's a thousand or so less players I'd have to worry about showing up at my WSOP event. Sure it's millions of dollars difference in the kitty, but 10 years ago they were playing for far less anyways and they were happy then.
-------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope to break even this week. I need the money.
