Online Gamblers Panic as Bank of America Online Suffers An Online Glitch

Online Gamblers Panic as Bank of America Online Suffers An Online Glitch:
Author: Magyck0ne

The online gambling community in the USA who also bank with Bank of America (BOFA) went into a massive state of panic last Wednesday when apparently an online glitch occurred and online BOFA customers were unable to access their online banking accounts.

They became worried because of ” The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act” (UIGEA) officially went into effect on June 1st, 2010 and these customers assumed that their accounts were frozen due to this new online gambling law. Bank of America has since corrected the problem so customers could access their accounts again. This is not the first scare online gamblers have experienced.

The UIGEA is the Internet gambling provision that was added (at the last possible moment) to The Security and Accountability For Every Port Act of 2006 (or SAFE Port Act) by the previous administration which also covers port security. In case you did not already know, UIGEA prohibits the transfer of electronic funds from a financial institution to online gambling sites.

UIGEA has been a real challenge for U.S. banking and financial institutions because the it places the burden of intercepting online gambling transactions. Many of the largest institutions has warned the U.S. government that it would be nearly impossible to stop these transactions.

Representative and Congressman Barney Frank (D), representing the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts, is expected to begin a new crusade and legislation that would overturn the UIGEA and begin a regulated Internet gambling system for the U.S. online gambling community (our kudos goes out to Barney Frank).

Frank, who had previously introduced three bills since 2007 that would nullify the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act already has almost seventy co-sponsors for his bill, and more are expected as the legislation hits center stage.

Republican lawmakers have been strongly against any online gambling regulations, but the pressure of the upcoming election cycle may force some Republicans to change their tune. Legislators in heavily Democratic populated areas could vote in favor of the law change to keep their strong ties to the people they represent.

Until then… It’s still a wait and see situation.

A while back I published an article titled “Why Obama Should Address Online Gambling and UIGEA” addressing what at the time was a new incoming liberal administration to a previously conservative run government in the United States of America.

This article is in regards to not so much our rights as American adults to gamble online as much as the economic relief it could provide to our struggling economy.

If you live in the USA and would like to see a better economy for us all as well as have the right to choose whether or not to gamble online with your own money…Please stand up and get your voices heard.

Interested in Starting a Texas Hold’em Poker League? Here’s How!

If you’re thinking of starting a Texas Hold’em poker league in your area and aren’t sure what to do, then read on.  This article is for YOU!

You, of course, have to decide if you want your Texas Hold’em poker league to be all men, all women or a mixed poker league.  Then you have to poll your friends and acquaintances to see how many would commit to a ten month poker league.  You will want to start out with at least 16 – 20 people.

Then you need to decidewhy you want to start your Texas Hold’em league, what would you like the group to be called, how often would you like to meet, is your poker league educational, how do you want to pay – one lump sum or for each session.  And you have to set up the prize that you’re playing for (usually to send the top 2 – 3 players for the season to a compete in a major tournament).  You will need to establish your poker league rules.

Also, you will need to find one or more of your new recruits to host the league.  Preferably someone who has poker tables, poker chips, poker software or timer, and everything else you’ll need to shuffle up and deal.

Don’t forget about setting up your blind structures.  And establishing points for the  league players in the order that they finish.  The top two or three players will be given their buy in for the major tournaments that you identify in your poker league rules.  You’ll also want to establish how many chips that all poker league players will start with.

I belong to two poker leagues and we use the WSOP sanctioned poker rules for each league.  The difference is one of the leagues meets once per month and we pay at the beginning of the league and play 12 games.   The other league is set up so that we pay $20 twice per month as we play.

Both have their merits.  If you pay in advance, you don’t have to worry about funding your prize pool if someone misses one game.  The downside is that there is no prize money per game – it all goes to the final prizes.

The pay as you go method offers the top three winners a small prize pool (half goes to the final prizes).  Each poker league is set up to help the members to become better skilled Texas Hold’em poker players, with all aspects of the game including betting and heads up play which can be more challenging parts of the game.  There’s a lot of strategy involved in playing poker and this will certainly help to develop an individual’s poker strategy.

The prize money that is set aside is used to send at least two people to a major tournament.  One league that I play in pays for the buy-in for the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Ladies Tournament which is played in June at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A poker league can be very effective for improving your poker play and give you more confidence when you play in major tournaments or casino or card room sponsored cash games.

A Texas Hold’em league is educational, fun, and a great social outlet as well – it’s enjoyable to play poker with friends and acquaintances.  You can add to the social aspect by  bringing food and sharing personal stories during play.  And, of course, you can keep each other up on what tournaments are coming up that are close to home just in case one or more of the poker layers can participate.  Starting a poker league in yourarea has many benefits and can be very educational, fun and rewarding!
