This U.S. law has created a huge discontent within the community of online gaming sites and poker room in the land of Uncle Sam since his proposal four years ago until that fateful day, continues to create polemics. Even if all measures have been taken, via internet, poker sites still drain a lot of people and reach more than 60,000 daily players.

According to John Pappas, the president of Poker Players Alliance (PPA), the main union of U.S. poker players, the UIGEA is not an adequate solution to discourage players to come on online poker sites and there will always be ways for addicts to put their money on game. And to declare that "the entry into force of the law will not much change poker players everyday." The PPA will then observed in a few weeks the evolution of the situation and are still waiting for the petition at the Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner and the President of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke on the exemption claimed for the case of peer-to-peer games, like poker, just as chess game. Another battle is engaged from now by the union, that to pass a regulation and a clear system of licenses and thereby eliminate al together the application of the famous Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.
