PPA Finally Takes A Side On Online Cheating Scandals
July 23, 2021
Alfonse D'Amato, the former US Senator and current Chairman of the Poker Players Alliance, has authored an official statement regarding the UltimateBet/Absolute Poker cheating scandals.

In the release (which can be found at D'Amato reasserts the PPA's long-held position as an advocacy group in Washington, dedicated to protecting player's rights from "misguided and vague" laws and not as a "regulatory body for poker players or the poker industry." However, the statement then goes on to break new ground (at least for the PPA) officially condemning the recent scandals and calling for a "full and transparent accounting of these breaches," by the companies in question and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.

D'Amato's statement is quick to point out that these kinds of breaches would be much less likely to occur if online poker were properly regulated, thus showing the scandals to be just one more argument in favor of the PPA's long standing goals.
