     1. JRB is a pro? (thought he was a casino employee) 2. Hopefully RISE will put him in charge of bad beat counseling…  3. Good luck “baby”!

    OK I’ll ask the same question I did before.

    The UIGEA makes it illegal for US banks to transfer money to a gambling establishment.
    Isn’t Rise Poker a gambling establishment?

    Why would transferring money to Rise Poker be legal in the US?
