Internet poker dance continues

Here's the latest -- the offshore operators of the most popular poker sites will have to fork over fines and pay money back to the hapless gamblers who thought they had safe accounts but then didn't. The feds are making Claude Rains speeches, but let's face it -- online poker will be back, big time, fairly soon, run by outfits like Harrah's and with one or more levels of government raking in a big cut. Corporate tools like Gatsby Wyden (R-N.Y.) and Earl the Pearl will gladly make it happen.

It will always be a chore to fairly and safely manage on-line poker. Even if you can get past the collusion, chip-dumping, and bots, there are serious hackers working very hard every day to crack software codes enabling them to actually read your hands.
