U.S. Players: This may be an opportunity for you to get your hands on some real money poker. I made sure to sign up for an account there before the expiration date and hope to be able to play poker there until some more options open up for us.

Places to play for real money are limited right now and I have been having difficulty finding a good spot. Hopefully this place works out.
