John Pappas of the Poker Players Alliance Shines on Radio

by Lou on November 16, 2007

Amy Calistri and I had John Pappas, of the Poker Players Alliance as a guest on our internet radio show, Keep Flopping Aces, last night. It was an incredible show, and if you are interested in a quick lesson on all of the issue confronting poker players in this country, go to the http://www.holdemradio.com/ show archives and tune in to a rebroadcast of last night’s show.
The show should be posted there within a few days, and by then you’ll also be able to listen to it as an i-Tunes podcast.
In fact, if you listen to last night’s show and also listen to the show from last week, which aired originally on November 8, you’ll be able to hear John Pappas and Annie Duke discuss many of the same issues.
It was incredibly informative, and it all boils down to the fact that every vote counts. If you haven’t registered to vote, do so now. If you have registered, be sure to vote for candidates that will protect your right to play poker in the privacy of your own home without someone else imposing their particular view of morality on you.
I’d also advise you to write to your congressional representative, or even better yet, phone them and make your feelings known.
If you go to http://www.pokerplayersalliance.org/ you’ll find a list of talking points that will help when you call or write to your representative to express your opinion about online poker and your right to play it.
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving, so we’ll air a rerun in our 6:00 p.m. PST time slot, but the following Thursday, November 29, we’ll be back with the only woman elected to the Poker Hall of Fame, Barbara Enright. You’ll be in for a treat if you tune in.
