Mike Sexton Talks Of A Victory For All Poker Players
Last week Federal Judge Jack Weinstein of New York ruled that poker is not gambling and is actually a game of skill — a ruling that could have serious ramifications for the game we all love.
Mike Sexton was one of scores of poker players who has publicly spoken out since the ruling, doing so on his PartyPoker blog. Sexton claims that poker has "been blessed" by the judge and that he expects "many states to change their archaic laws" in agreement with the judge.
Sexton also believes the ruling will allow poker players in the United States of America to be able to play their home-games without fear of legal repercussions and that he expects this ruling will have a major impact on the legality of online poker in the U.S.

Once you have received the confirmation email, $20 will be placed in your PartyPoker account. You must earn at least 40 PartyPoints before you will be able to withdraw the free $20. If you do not earn 40 PartyPoints within 60 days, the initial $20, or whatever remains of it, will be forfeited. PartyPoints are earned at a rate of two PartyPoints per $1 in rake or tournament fees, so earning 40 within 60 days is easy.
Once you have earned 40 PartyPoints a further $30 will be deposited into your account bringing the total free cash amount to $50. You must then generate 160 points before you can cash out any of the $30 and must do so within 120 days otherwise the $30, or the remainder of it will be forfeited.
Could this $50 starting bankroll be the start of a glistening poker career? There is only one way to find out.
