2009 PCA: D'Amato on the stump
There are many famous folks in the room tonight. Most are doing their battles on the Bahamian baize. One man, however, stands out for a fight going on 944 miles away in Washington D.C.
As you might already know, Former U.S. Senator Alfonse D'Amato serves as the chairman of the Poker Players Alliance, a group formed to fight for laws protecting the rights of poker players.
D'Amato spoke to the assembled crowd earlier tonight and urged everyone to join in the fight for online poker.
