The chat server allows communication between multiple PSxP apps. This server is intended for morale,  support, and to discuss both good and bad decisions AFTER they are made. THIS IS  NOT FOR COLLUSION. The person who runs the server  will distribute their address to the persons of his/her choice and only those persons can connect to the conference. The chat server has an installed bot to manage the conference environment on the rich text chat panels on PSxP. Many text-based commends include KICK, SEEN, MSG, READ, WEATHER, PRIVATEMSG,  etc.

It would be difficult to imagine a more tilting hearing for poker players to watch than the one Wednesday in the Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Insurance.

Internet gambling was compared to pornography, discussed as a hotbed of money laundering by criminal organizations and terrorists, and said to be an avenue for human and drug trafficking.

“I think there was some crazy fear mongering at the hearing that really had no basis that we’ve seen,” said Rich Muny, vice president of player relations for the Poker Players Alliance. “I hope that every poker player has a chance to listen to this because many people think this should be easy. This is a real fight and we need to do our part to advocate for the right to play.”

The archived webcast of the hearing, titled “The Expansion of Internet Gambling: Assessing Consumer Protection Concerns,” and written testimony from witnesses can be viewed here. None of the four witnesses were particularly in favor of online poker regulation.

The Senators themselves seemed more uniformed than at any hearing on the issue since the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act passed in 2006. That’s not surprising given that most movement on the issue has taken place in the House of Representatives. Even though Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has floated a proposal two of the past three years that would have legalized online poker, no such bill has officially been introduced in the Senate during that time. Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who worked with Reid on last year’s proposal, is ranking member of the subcommittee.

In a roundabout way, there were some good developments from the hearing. The committee members seemed to uniformly agree that the current system isn’t working and that the federal government needs to step in to ensure consumer protection.

“One of the positives of the hearing is that it was clear everything they’re concerned about would be addressed best with a good regime of licensing and regulation,” Muny said. “Prohibition really wouldn’t address any of them. We’d be in the same place as today, except maybe the DOJ would have some more tools.”

Most of the Senators and witnesses seemed to be considering regulation and prohibition as options. The only person to speak against prohibition was witness Jack Blum, an attorney specializing in money laundering compliance, who said, “I do not believe prohibiting Internet gambling will work. The horse has left the barn. The Internet is too open to control and, in any event, controls will not work across state and national borders.”

Sen. Heller did make the case for online poker being separated from other forms of gambling.

“I also believe that Congress should examine the merits of providing a path forward for limited federally regulated online poker,” Heller said. “Poker, a game of skill not a game of chance, is different than other house-banked games such as blackjack or roulette. I believe that, if given the opportunity, appropriate consumer protection standards could be put in place to protect American consumers while still providing for play of this nationally recognized peer-to-peer game.”

At least the Senators are now thinking that unregulated online gambling is a problem they need to address. Getting more Senators interested in taking action on the issue is the biggest key at this point, trusting that Senate Majority Leader Reid should be able to mold that interest in a way that allows regulated online poker for the casinos in his home state of Nevada.

“I can’t see how the Senate would be able to push something past Sen. Reid that would ban online poker outright,” Muny said. “I think we’re in an interesting position where we’re gearing up the Senate, not in the way I would do it but in a way they know that the status quo is not acceptable and something needs to be done.”

H.R.2666 – Internet Poker Freedom Act of 2013

Posted July 13, 2013 By martin

If passed, the Internet Poker Freedom Act will require all Internet poker facilities to go through a licensing process in order to be deemed legal operations.  In order to become licensed, an applicant must demonstrate that it maintains appropriate safeguards and mechanisms, including the ability restrict (to a reasonable degree of certainty) that participants are 21-years of age or older, physically located in a jurisdiction that has not prohibited such poker bets at the time they are placed, protected from having their personal information disclosed or disseminated and offered games that are fair and honest, which prevent cheating and the use of cheating devices (including software programs known as “bots”).  Failure to become licensed could result in the individuals associated with such facilities to be fined and/or receive up to five years in prison.  Licenses issued will be valid for five years upon receipt.

US Online poker site completes 30-day trial

Posted July 13, 2013 By martin

Ultimate, the first fully legal United States online gambling and poker website, has now received the recommendation of the Nevada Gaming Control Board to be fully approved by the state’s gaming commission. The iGaming market is booming everywhere and other states are looking to follow Nevada’s lead.

SBR reported on February 22 that Nevada made history by legalizing online poker. One week later, NJ Governor Christie signed an internet gambling bill for his state. Atlantic City is expected to have its internet games up and running near the end of the year.

Ultimate Gaming CEO Tobin Prior released the following statement on the news: “The Nevada Gaming Control Board has set regulatory requirements for online poker at the highest level. We are thrilled that our product is the first to not only meet these standards, but exceed them.”

If you’re thinking of anteing up, you’re going to have to be at least 18 years of age and physically present in the state of Nevada at the time. Many companies are spending significantly to recruit firms specializing in geo-location technology to ensure the strict licensing standards are met. SBR reported on one such company’s deal with earlier in the week.

Just years ago, the US seemed determined at a federal level to outlaw most forms of internet gambling. The states, on the other hand, are desperate to bring in more revenue through taxes. Internet gambling is just the beginning of the conversation with respect to the land of the free; across the country NJ is undergoing a federal battle for sportsbooks in Atlantic City that might end with the repeal of federal law PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act) – which could see states other than Sin City accepting wagers on sports games in the future.

VB.NET vs C#

Posted July 13, 2013 By martin

Here in the real world where work actually gets done for actual monetary compensation, developers choose Visual Basic for one reason and one reason only: It’s the programming equivalent to the Leatherman Pocket Multitool. Visual Basic (for Applications) is employed in the MS Office Object Model (from Office 2000 up to and including the new 2012. Visual Basic (for Applications) is employed in the ArcGIS software suite API. VBA is embedded in dozens of other high-end and industry-specific software products for built-in extensibility as well. Visual Basic is employed in Windows Scripting Host (WSH/wscript) and the Command-Based Scripting Host (cscript), and VBScript is processed/executed in HTML markup by all webbrowsers worth having. In Legacy Visual Basic (6 and earlier) VB also exposed OOP, and in DotNET VB exposes OOP plus DotNET. The syntaxes, array functions, and other basic language behaviors are absolutely identical across these multiple and various platforms meaning that if you VB then you do all of the above. If you’re a Visual Basic developer, all of the above is right at your fingertips as long as you’re willing/able to learn the variant engine capabilities.

C# doesn’t offer half of this. In fact, C# only offers DotNET. C# is however, as others have mentioned, an internationally standardized syntax as opposed to a company proprietary language. C# also enjoys an avid following in non-DotNET circles, with multiple interpreters available for Linux/Unix; if you develop on DotNET with C# though, you’re as tied to Windows with DotNET as you would be with Visual Basic. There is a (allegedly functional) product called Mono to extend DotNET onto Linux/Mac platforms, but Mono sucks hard and loud; many proponents will screech that it’s VB that sucks and therefore the Mono project doesn’t support it as well as C#, but if you’ve ever actually tried to use Mono you’d have learnt really fast that System.Windows.Forms doesn’t work well in Mono in any language and System.Net.Security is almost entirely nonexistent (at least if you want/need to work with any SSL over 1.0 and/or use any crypto newer than 10 years old).

On the whole “$10,000.00 USD per year more for developing with C#” question, because the VB developer can literally do anything the C# developer can do and then a whole lot more, the VB developer gets to write his/her own ticket (very, very literally) when working with/for anybody who relies on Microsoft Products like Windows, MS Office, (and ESRI products, and other VBA-embedded products). The C# developer without any ability to do anything but prattle nonsense about how lowly and worthless VB skills are, on the other hand, literally can’t do anything but weigh in heavily on topics he/she knows little/nothing about and then say nasty things like, “I don’t know what you’re talking about and I don’t think you do either,” when they get called on it. So in the end, you should never, never, never select a programming language for any development based on which language is better than another; you should find a competent developer who can tell you his/her own reasons for preferring one language over the other and then let them do it their own way because that way you’ll get the best possible final product out of them.

Ivey League Online Poker Ready in California

The United States has been moving ahead at a steady pace on the legalization of previously prohibited online poker. California has been making noises regarding its progress delivering legal online poker legislation to its citizens. A recent article on the Tight Poker web site has revealed a partnership deal between Jim Ryan, the former chief executive officer of Digital Entertainment, and the Pala Band of Mission Indians in California.

It was also revealed on the Pokerfuse web site that online poker professional Phil Ivey will be taking a major role in the venture. A new company called Pala Interactive, is now preparing to launch online casino and poker products in California as soon as the state legislates legal online gambling. The partnership deal is limited at this time to online gambling products for California, but can also be adjusted  to launch in more US jurisdictions. Pala Interactive is expected to operate on Realtime Edge Software, which is currently being utilized by other major online gambling operators including, GTECH, digital entertainment, and ClubWPT.

Phil Ivey, who was a sponsored pro poker player at Full Tilt Poker prior to its demise has launched Ivey Poker which is home to a team of professional poker players. Ivey Poker, recently acquired LeggoPoker, an online poker training portal and launched a social poker gaming application on Facebook.  LeggoPoker’s, former owner Aaron Jones, has plans to create another poker training site called Ivey League, which will be one of the poker training sites on the Ivey Poker Network, an online network of poker sites to educating and train online poker players.

LeggoPoker will be rebranded as Ivey League when the launch is applied. Ivey Poker is a social online poker room, where players can play games for free. California has still a ways to go to find consensus for online gambling legislation but Pala Interactive will be hitting the ground running when it happens.
