PokerPages has been so good to me, I must return the kindness.
From this blog entry forward, I will be writing three shorter entries that will appear Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays rather than the one longer one that ran once a week. Hopefully this will suit everyone’s busy lifestyle a little better. Thank you for years of support for this blog.
Here And Now...let’s get quick and sometimes even a little dirty in our mutual quest to understand the new poker.
To kick off the tri-weekly format, here’s an email received this week from the Poker Players Alliance. They are asking for legal assistance for arrested poker players. Can you help? Know anyone who can?

As you may know, on Saturday Jan 12th, San Mateo Police raided a home poker game and arrested some of the participants. We have been covering the events on our website, with selected articles posted here. Two of the players arrested were members of the PPA and respected individuals in the local community.
We are seeking the help of local PPA members who are lawyers and would be interested in helping these fellow poker players in need. Be it pro bono or paid work, we are looking for people in the area to provide legal assistance. If you are able to provide legal assistance please contact me at: email@example.com
Further we ask that you share your thoughts on the arrest by commenting on blogs, articles, and discussing it at the PPA forums.
Proud to Play Poker,
If you aren’t familiar with the PPA, it’s the poker advocacy group headed by former U.S. Senator Al D’Amato. The last membership count I heard for the organization was 800,000 registered players, with an office in Washington D.C.
It looks like all the weird stuff that’s been happening to us since October 2006, with the Internet ban, is continuing apace. Like Jason Potter being robbed in Australia. Remeber the attempt to rob Greg Raymer?
Check back Wednesdays and Fridays, as well.
