Here here Lips!
You know what, it was awful on the poker sites. I hated every minute that USA players were gone. USA players brought a magic to poker that no other players bring - I can't put my finger on it, I just know that I loathed it for quite a while (although it didn't stop me playing at the particular site I was on).
I have to give kudos to each and every American who continues to take part in their favourite passtime of gambling be it on the casinos, bingo, poker or sportsbooks. You guys have not gone down without a fight and for that, you should all give yourselves a huge pat on the back.
I hope that legalization on a fair scale comes to you all soon.
