istock_000002982441xsmallLots and lots of iGaming industry coverage has been dedicated to California’s new legislation that seeks to legalize online poker within its borders. It seems like a good bet that the Golden State (which is the most populous in the U.S., and which, historically, tends to set trends for the rest of the nation) will be able to make this happen.

So, my question to you: Is this a story you’re interested in? As poker affiliates, is the online poker legal situation a story you follow, or do you just pursue players from countries where there are no legal problems? Do you think that, if California legalizes online poker, it could have a ripple effect that leads to the UIGEA being overturned?
