Joe Cada Wants Legal Online Poker

December 9, 2009

joecadaJoe Cada won the World Series of Poker Main Event this year and has been taking on the role as an ambassador for poker. It seems he is really taking this new role seriously and is putting a lot of work and effort in to making poker accepted in the US.

In the States there are always a lot of discussions about gambling on the internet and if it should be regulated or not. Should online gambling become regulated it will have a huge impact on online poker as well. Joe Cada is one of the people who are currently fighting for poker on the internet to be legalized.

Recently he went in front of congress and talked about why online poker should be legal.

In an interview with Time Magazine Joe Cada had the following to say:

I support the right to play online poker. Poker is not gambling. It is a hobby, an activity and a game. Poker is not about luck, it’s about logic, decision making and math.

    I’m not sure we need a 21 year old fighting for online poker. Let’s get some adults out there on the front lines. Step back Cada, you are likely to say something that will ruin it for us all.

    On one hand US Government is not sure whether to ban or legalize so called “internet gambling” and on the other they are sucking out our money made through online poker in the form of taxes and by not maintaining a close eye on “illegal” or “foxy platforms” which dupe their customers.

    im a sure would be nice to feel safe about cashing out online.i think my mind is built for the game of strategy in which i love and devote a lot of time getting feel better about myself if i was doing something that is accepted in our country. i get nervous when im about to send me a check so i dont and eventually i hit a bad run and go broke.theres gotta be a way to make this work,and have our country form a gaming commission for online to watch our backs when we follow our hopes and dreams.

Got something to say?
