PPA Plans Rally In Washington State
May 12, 2022
The state of Washington, believed by many in this country to be a progressive and technological leader, has arguably- for lack of a better term- some of the most puritanical laws in the country when it comes to internet poker. 

In Washington, despite being the home to several casinos and racetracks, playing internet poker is considered a Class C felony similar to child pornography and heroin possession, thanks to a recently enacted law which Poker Players Alliance Washington State Director Lee Rousso, has been fighting since its approval in 2006.

Rousso’s long going fight, will finally land him in front of the Washington State Supreme Court this month on May 27th, and the PPA has decided to hold a rally there that day as well, not only to show support for Lee as he argues the law's unconstitutionality, but also to bring attention to an often overlooked issue which many state residents, like poker pro Phil Gordon, feel is overly extreme to say the least.

The PPA Washington Supreme Court rally, which is set to begin Thursday, May 27th at 10:00am, is open to the public and will be attended by Gordon, Rousso, Senator Alfonse D’Amato and PPA Executive Director John Pappas.  For more information check out the official press release on the Poker Players Alliance website (
