Recommended Sites Accepting American Players

Bovada -  Bovada is still one of the most trusted and reliable home for American players. They're based out of Latvia, so they are not governed by the strict gaming laws in the US. They seem very committed to continue the fight for USA players.

Bodog - Calvin Ayre isn't scared. The Bodog owner said it was business as usual at the Bodog poker room and casino.  You will notice that Bodog is one of the only poker rooms still advertising on American television channels.

Videos Regarding Poker Ban

Bill Frist Corruption Video - This video gets an A+ and made me laugh for quite awhile.

Shelley Berkley - Her pissed off speech on how the gambling bill doesnt pertain to port security.

J. Todd Crime to Play Poker - Video on when the gambling bill first passed.

Poker Sites that support Linux

Currently there is no poker sites with independent linux software. This is a shame considering there is an estimated 29,000,000 Linux users worldwide. Our linux developers would be very interested in developing a Linux client, however we simply do not have the funding or interest from any major poker rooms to make it a reality. For more information on this, email erik at unmatchedpoker dot com.
However, many sites accept Linux players using a Java enabled browser.
Check out any of the Poker Sites listed here and use the Java Interface instead of downloading the exe.
