    I guess u never got the memo. Poker bill is dead in the assembly per pretlow. Both pretlow and bonacic said they were given assurances that the dfs bill will hit both floors this week. They sound very optimistic on passage. I hope this get resolved by Friday.

    I’m sorry I hurt your feelings lebron James lol. Both dfs and poker might be on the big ugly bill. I strongly feel dfs will be more than poker. Hope both go on it though.

    I’ll take that complement lol yeah I honestly think DFS will be good to go, poker will need to sneak through on the big ugly to be realistic

    Allow me to be the first to say I hope DK and Fanduel’s servers and bandwidth are ready for NY to come back!

  • Chuky

    It seems so. Bonacic said it will likely pass Thursday. Pretlow sounds very bullish. Coumo looking to make more amendments. They have a new bill. Old one is scrap. Sounds great, but I won’t sip any champagne until it’s actually done

    Fine guys, I’ll leave the office the finish up from home (see: update my Excel sheets). Stop twisting my arm.

    Any truth to the rumor that this new bill only legalizes GPP’s and that cash games won’t be allowed?

    no truth to that Agoraphobia – someone on twitter either misinterpreted a clause or purposefully is distributing a meme with incorrect information

    The way I understand it, some guy misinterpreted either the original UIGEA or the new bill’s wording about prize pools. We’ve already been playing with those rules, they’re why we get overlay once in a while: Sites have to have a predetermined prize pool, they can’t make the prize pools based on how many people join the tournament. Cash games follow these rules.

  • Agoraphobia

    Thanks for clarifying that, and for bringing my blood pressure back to normal.

  • jdelsas

    Really hoping this works out for you folks in NY. Maybe this will finally help IL get their (dead) bill adjusted for the next legislative cycle based on how NY plays out and the safeguards that your state puts in place, but I highly doubt our government officials are anywhere near that competency level.

    I have a feeling a lot of guys are going to wonder why they are suddenly below the cash line.

    I actually think it will be the opposite. When a big state like New York goes down you end up losing a ton of fish and a small number of pros. The fish and or the average player will just quit while someone who’s making a living off of dfs is more likely to move to a state where it is legal. I have noticed a lot of people who have had success in the past complaining that they are getting killed this season. I myself have made money this season but it was because of a very good first month. Since then it’s been obvious to me that there aren’t as many fish in the sea. If New York comes back we will be getting a ton of average players and fish back compared to a small amount of pros and high level players.

    Heastie just now: not sure if there is a final #DFS deal as he’s still gauging support among Assem Dems.

    was about the type the same thing; a lot of fish and “gamblers” in NY :)

    This is how it’s going to be until Thursday night. That’s y I’m not sipping any champagne yet. We won’t know anything definitive until late Thursday or Friday. Don’t drive yourself crazy reading these tweets

    No not at all. The casinos/racinos setup quite a few (now 1 month old or so) fake twitter accounts to attack dfs with lots of lies and misrepresentations like the one you are asking about. Really easy to spot with their low tweet count/followers and the ones I’ve seen have the word ‘dopey’ in their names like dopeydeanmurray or dopeydarrenlove etc. Believe nothing coming out of those accounts.
