Poker Players Alliance Heads to Washington Tomorrow

Damato_1The Poker Players Alliance, the online poker lobbying group chaired by former US Senator Alfonse D'Amato (at right), is flying in 100 of its members to Washington DC tomorrow to lobby lawmakers for a poker carve-out from the UIGEA.

According to an AP article that hit the wires this afternoon, among the players who will be there is Chris Moneymaker. While we figured he's going because no one picked the 2003 World Champion for their US Poker Bowl team, the truth is Moneymaker is still the most recognizable name in poker outside the poker world and will serve well for handshakes and photo opps with the elected shysters in our Nation's Capital.

Other pros set to be there include Andy Bloch, Chad Brown, Barry Greenstein, Victor Ramdin, Howard Lederer and Vanessa Rousso, a woman.

Sounds like a party.

Notably, Harvard Law Professor Charles Neeson of the Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society is expected to speak at one of the scheduled policy forums.
