Internet gambling site PokerStars announced today the government's ban on web gambling won't affect them. Their lawyers have determined they will not be shut down by the new legislation prohibiting monetary transactions for internet gambling.

Although this might be conceived as good news by poker aficionados, Pokerstars doesn’t address the main issue of bank transactions. 

Even though poker's popularity has boomed and some would dub it a sport, it is still illegal to play poker in a home, office, or private club.  The real issue at hand is the regulation of the internet.  The chief backer of the gambling legislation, conservative Republican Jon Kyl stated, "Gambling can be highly addictive, especially when its done over an unregulated environment such as the Internet."

President Bush has stated he will sign the bill which was conveniently attached to a port security bill.
