Here is the unofficial list of poker rooms who either still support US Players and/or have announced they will not yet bail on us. It should be noted that this list is not a reccommendation or endorsement to play, as I am neither encouraging or discouraging anyone from playing online. That being said, feel free to click through to download as you see appropriate :

If you're going to support online poker, please support only these rooms, using the above links... Additionally, I urge each and every one of you to do the following:

1. Join the Poker Players Alliance. Support them in the battle against our hostile "uniform wearing" Government to keep poker legal.

2. Elections are coming up. I urge everyone to send a message to our elected officials and vote them out of office if they've supported prohibiting internet gambling in any way, shape, or form. If they voted for the ban (Aye), please appropriately vote them out of office. Here's a list of the poker vote.

Finally, I will keep this page updated as information changes...

Feel free to contact me through either the CheckRayz site or through the Poker Pub Blog via comments as questions, comments, and/or concerns arise.
