When pressed about his motivation to help this cause Dutch had this to say – “I felt that after ripping off so many poker players with my old company PokerSpot, that I could at least make a contribution and fight for the rights of so many nude poker players.”

He went on to mention that “he knows people who know people who know to toss a salad.” When pressed for further clarification, he made a vague reference to the following clip -


While the bill does not carve out any specifics regarding clothed online play, we feel it’s still safe to play fully clothed (wear a jacket just in case) at sites like Full Tilt Poker.
