Obama et le poker : Vers une légalisation du jeu en ligne au niveau mondial?


En voilà une bonne nouvelle pour les ricains ou les frenchies expatrié aux states...

Alors qu'en France la législation va s'ouvrir au jeu en ligne pour le deuxième semestre 2009 (bien que partouche l'ai déjà fait!)
Obama, grand fan de poker (Cf ci dessous) va certainement légaliser le poker en ligne aux states. Et comme pour tout il y a de grande chance que le reste du monde suive l'exemple!
Avec plus de 300 millions de $$$ échangés chaque jour online (soit chaque jour l'équivalent du PIB annuel thailandais)
De quoi ressourcer l'aquarium à fish!


  • Version joueur pro on a donc : More players = More fishes = Better BB/100 = More winnings = More spending = More pleasure!


  • Version Politique : More players = more poker's revenue = more poker's company profit = more taxes = More budget


  • Version Donk : More fun = less money = more working time = Less spending time




Toby Harnden writes:
"When he was a young state politician in Illinois, Barack Obama played his cards right. "He had the stone face," said Senator Terry Links, who hosted weekly poker games at his home. 'He didn't stay in hands if he didn't think he had a chance of winning.'
Links told Harnden:

"Barack wasn't one of those foolish gamblers who just thought all of a sudden that card in the middle was going to show up mysteriously. He's as competitive in politics as he is in poker. It's not like he's going to go into something without a course of action mapped out."

So would Barack Obama rally behind the online poker playing community who today feel like castaways thanks to a few choice politicians (not just Republicans we might add)? Probably not. But we can't help but wonder if Mr. Obama would have requested the removal of an attached measurement to curb online poker attached to that port security bill.
