Poker and the Military

The history of poker includes many players that learned the game while serving in the U.S. Military. This list includes several Commander and Chiefs. Warren Harding, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon were all known to enjoy the game. Nixon won $6000 dollars while serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII and used the money to fund his first campaign for congress. Harding played at least twice a week. His advisors got the nickname "the poker cabinet" because they played with the President. It is rumored that he even lost a complete set of White House china in a game.

World Series of Poker winners Brian "Sailor" Roberts and Puggy Pearson both honed their poker skills while serving in the Navy.

In honor of past and present military poker players, PokerChaos has created a series of armed forces poker team t-shirts. Support our troops and show your interest in the game of poker. Join one of these poker teams:

PPA August Newsletter

Dear Fellow PPA Member:

Thanks to your efforts, we have made tremendous progress in our fight to protect the rights of poker players. More than 40 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have committed to clarifying federal laws to preserve your ability to play poker online. But we still need your help to get the attention of every U.S. Representative.

Congress is in recess for August and your Representative will be returning home to host local events and town hall meetings. These are great opportunities to tell them that poker is not a crime and to support H.R. 2046, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act and H.R. 2610, the Skill Game Protection Act.

Here's how to find out when these events are happening:

1. Get the phone number of your U.S. Representative's hometown office by clicking here and entering your ZIP Code.

2. Call to ask when and where these events are taking place in the month of August.

3. Go to one of these events and bring your fellow poker players. Tell your U.S. Representative that poker is not a crime and to co-sponsor H.R. 2046 and H.R. 2610 when they return to Washington. Let them know that you will support them if they support the rights of law-abiding poker players.

Thank you for being an "August Advocate" for the Poker Players Alliance.

Proud to Play Poker,
Senator Al D'Amato
Chairman of the Board
