Now more than 100,000 members strong, the Poker Players Alliance is hoping to further increase its troops in the battle against unfair gambling regulations by offering free memberships.
The alliance, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to protect poker players' rights, is hoping to double its membership by this year's World Series of Poker.
To become a part of the group - already a who's who of the professional poker world with members such as Doyle Brunson, Chip Reese and Erik Seidel - visit the Poker Players Alliance Web site at www.pokerplayersalliance.org/jointoday.php.
Signing up is free, but the group also offers a $20 full membership, a $40 supporting membership, a $100 contributing membership and a $1,000 distinguished membership, all of which include a t-shirt and access to information about special events.
Players can also update their current memberships on the site or make a donation to the organization. The alliance has updated the homepage to make donations simpler and anonymous if the benefactor so wishes.
