There’s this ridiculous idea that Iowans need protection from the outer world. Specifically, it’s being claimed that “online poker is very risky for Iowans.”

This is the position of Rep. Dough Struyk of Iowa. According to, these were his words:

“Right now what’s going on is illegal, offshore and very risky for Iowans,”

This was said in connection with a new gambling bill suggesting that the state should provide Iowans with online poker tournaments against fellow Iowans only.

Very risky fir Iowans

Inter-state poker: yes and no

Just don’t monopolize
