In this unregulated industry, it is guilty until proven innocent and the breach of TOS wont help the matter
If you really want to get technical, unless you are in one of the 13 states that have specific laws against online gambling, you are not breaking the law by playing.

I do agree about the "guilty until proven innocent" motif, but in all reality, the UIGEA only makes it "illegal" for payment processors to transfer funds from an American account to an online casino. In no way does it make online gambling illegal, in a universal form.

In fact, Pennsylvania and South Carolina judges recently ruled that poker is a game of skill, and therefore, not gambling. This opens sooooo many doors. If I wanted to push the issue, I could argue this fact with PartyPoker, and they'd be hard pressed to give me a reason as to why I couldn't play on their poker site, because in all actuality, as a resident of Pennsylvania, it is 100% legal for me to play poker for money - online or off.

The same goes for California. There have been legal land-based card rooms in existence for over a decade in their state.

Yeah, I wont even touch on the legal issues but for the players own safety i think they should know what they are up against. There are ways around it but that is for the player to decide

Beaston i agree with your thinking 100%. If anyone gets arrested in the States anymore for playing poker, it will be hard for a court to find them guilty now that a few of their own have rules that poker in not illegal and is not gambling. I mean how can one court say its ok, and another say its not? Not good for the country for the court system to be at odds with each other.

That last line of your response catwoman, is what gambling is all about.

Our country is at odds within itself; with the court and government systems saying two different things.

Hey, isn't that illeagal?

Playing the odds is gambling; and you know there's some kind of payoff going on in this, so the system can cover its backside.
