Stay On the Right Side of Online Betting Laws

The laws regarding online betting vary with the country. Online gambling companies are not allowed to operate in the US. Three US states, namely Nevada, Louisiana, and California have explicitly written laws against online gambling. It is not uncommon for employees of online betting companies from other countries to run foul of the law when they travel to the US. The UK, on the other hand, has made a move toward allowing gambling to grow in a regulated environment. Gambling companies can now legally operate from within the UK. This step is regarded by many as one in the right direction, which allows the population to harness the power of the Internet for pleasure and profit.

For long have supporters of the online gaming industry rued the discriminatory laws stacked against online betting and a completely different set of laws for offline betting. Industry watchers feel that it is only a matter of time before the law in America takes a similar position as that of the UK and allows online bets to be accepted in the country. Till now, it has been places like Gibraltar and Antigua that have allowed online betting to operate from their shores and they have reaped benefits. These countries have had a head start in the management and regulation of online betting companies. Antigua places a lot of emphasis on thorough background checks before issuing licenses, not only that even if a licensed betting company issues sublicenses, it can only do so after a background check by the FBI and the Interpol. For all the assurances of an online betting site, players have little concrete guarantee that the game is being run honestly. To address player concerns, some countries have also set up an anti-fraud cell that looks into cases of duping by online betting sites. Since, state and federal laws in many countries are in a state of flux regarding online gaming, it is crucial that the efforts of countries like Antigua and Grenada be duplicated for winning customer confidence.

When talking of online betting laws, it is important to realize that you need to consider not just the laws of the country from which the website operates but also the country where the hosting servers reside and the laws of the countries from which the website gets traffic; in short we are talking about online betting laws from around the world. At present most nations do not have a clearly-defined law structure for online gambling; the UK for example, allows online betting companies to operate but taxes them heavily while the bettors are not taxed for the amount they wager. This bias is causing many well-known online gambling companies to set up operations in other parts of the world, which is a direct loss in revenue for the UK government. In fact, the lure of profits from online gaming is so strong that governments in countries such as Finland and the Principality of Liechtenstein have their own betting sites.

Player Profile: Clonie Gowan

Her real name is Cycalona Gowen because she was born during a tropical storm. Clonie grew up in Kiowa, Oklahoma and played sports in high school. She ranked seventh in the high jump in track and field and was also a championship-level basketball player. She had looks as well as skill in sports and the pretty young blonde won the Miss Teen McAlester crown in Oklahoma at age fifteen.

Clonie is a divorced mother of two and lives in Dallas, Texas. Her older child, a daughter, lives with her first husband and she is raising her second child, a son, who is a product of her second marriage.

She learned poker while in her teens and became more skillful after her first divorce when she would drive to Shreveport, Louisiana to play in the casinos. Clonie began to win several hundred dollars each weekend which soon became a steady income and decided she could earn more money as a gambler then working at her travel agency business to play poker full time and finds this world much more to her liking.

She became known to the public after finishing tenth in the 2002 Costa Rica Classic. The following year, she beat five of the world’s best women players – including Annie Duke and Jennifer Harman – at WPTs Ladies Night which was an event that was made for television.

Some of Clonie’s poker-related activities:

• Appeared on Good Morning America

• Mentioned in the New York Times, Dallas Observer, Texas Monthly, Esquire Magazine

• Guest appearances on Ultimate Poker Challenge in Las Vegas and European World Poker Championship in Dublin, Ireland

• Writes a regular Question and Answer column for WSOP Bluff Magazine

• Member of the Board of Directors of the United States Poker Association

Clonie Gowan is a member of the team of poker experts on FullTilt.com, Howard Lederer’s website, which include the following notables:

• Chris Ferguson

• Jennifer Harman

• Erick Lindgren

• Mike Matusow

• Phil Ivey

• John Juanda

• Phil Gordon

• Erik Seidel

• Andy Bloch

She is now a partner in a poker school teaching the basics of tournament play to women and men. She states the aim of the school is to instruct her students “How to be successful in a competitive game where your own money is at stake.” Additionally, she is writing a book “Good Girls Do Make the Final table”, which is scheduled to be printed by Harcourt Brace and is due out some time in 2006.

Unlike most other well-known poker players who are open about their winnings, Clonie, “The New Face of Poker”, is vague about her finances.

She also is involved in charities where she is a frequent host and does a great deal of volunteer work. At the Whisper Walk in Dallas to help victims of ovarian cancer, Clonie – whose mother is a survivor of this disease – was a very much appreciated guest speaker.

Clonie Gowan is considered a midlevel poker professional and has high public visibility. However, her name did not appear in Card Player magazine’s rankings and she has thus far not finished at the final table of any important tournament.

Best State for Sports? Worst State for Sports?

I think the best state for sports is Louisiana(LSU(07 BCS Champs). Saints(Went further then ever, NFC Championship, 2006) Hornets(playoffs, 2008)
Who says we’re all cajuns? Im not.

Cali is overrated lol

my home state of Michigan might fit both of those.

Best: Red Wings, Pistons, Spartans, Wolverines (Sometimes Tigers)
Worst: Lions, (sometimes Tigers)
