    The World Poker Fund has recently hired an important lawyer in their development of online poker in the United States. For their Online and Interactive Gaming Committee, Martin D. Owens Jr. has been hired as a chief advisor. This is a key position that will help to drive the direction of their efforts and maximize the efficiency levels for how they use their resources.

    The History of Owens

    Martin D. Owens Jr. has a long history of being active when it comes to online gambling legislation in the United States. He's specialized in this particular industry for more than a decade and a half, and he's likely to be the single lawyer in the United States who has the most experience working with these issues. Along these lines, he's an associate editor of Gaming Law Review and Economics, and he's also one of the co-authors of Internet Gaming Law. Overall, it's hard to find someone who can really compete with Owens when it comes to credentials, so it's easy to see that they've really went for the top dog in this particular arena.

    Company Focus

    Right now, the primary project for the World Poker Fund is developing online poker, and they're focusing primarily on Native American Indian Tribes at the moment. The idea is that these tribes have sovereign rights, and they do a lot of work taking advantage of the liberties given in the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. While Owens is based in California, he hopes to help the World Poker Fund to expand online poker all over the United States and to help with efforts in other part of the world.

    State of Online Poker

    The state of online poker in the United States is a little complicated to say the least. Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey all have state-regulated online poker games, and players from Nevada and Delaware are even allowed to play together thanks to a pact signed by the respective states' governors. However, the poker economy will have a hard time really getting off of the ground without a sufficient base of players to pull from, and that's exactly what's holding back a lot of the profits that the states could be pulling from regulating this industry.
