    Oh man, now a college kid can't even run up a poker debt?

    I have to agree with that. It's not good and I understand that it sets a horrible precedent, but that's not that awful.

    Teddy Dupay turned out OK didn't he? ;D

    Not if he's a scholarship athlete he can't.

    Well, not according to the rules. I won't dispute that. But as a practical matter, everyone should lose at cards as a young person. It helps you later in life.

    If college kids can't play online poker anymore, the terrorists have already won.

    67,216 is a nut under.

    Higher, and higher.

    I have known a number of college golfers, past and present. They don't tee it up in a practice round without betting at least $10 Nassaus. They can't even practice their putting and chipping without having some kind of bet on it. Is that any worse than on-line poker?

    A teammate isn't going to kneecap you for not paying up...
