PokerListings' legal guru to guest on radio show

Justice scales

Poker fans who've been keeping up with news about online gambling legislation and legal poker issues in the United States here on PokerListings may have noticed Shari Geller's name on the vast majority of those stories in the past few months.

Geller is an attorney and poker writer who has become our guru when it comes to covering what's going on in the legal realm of poker and online gambling, and now she's taking her expertise to Lou Krieger's Internet radio show Keep Flopping Aces on

She will be a guest on the show today at 6 p.m. PST to talk about the various poker-related legal cases that have been in the news.

"Shari was my guest on October 16, when we discussed the case in which the Commonwealth of Kentucky attempted to seize 141 poker-related Internet domain names," Krieger wrote in his blog.

Krieger will be picking her brain once again about the case now that the Kentucky Court of Appeals ruled that the seizure should be set aside. Kentucky has filed an appeal of its own, and this case could be heading to the Kentucky Supreme Court.

Krieger said Geller is also expected to talk about Clonie Gowen's lawsuit against Full Tilt Poker, as well as President Barack Obama's pick of Eric Holder, who has committed to enforcing the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, for U.S. attorney general.

On a more positive note, she'll also talk about two recent cases in Pennsylvania and Colorado where poker was recognized as a game of skill and therefore not considered illegal gambling.

She has analyzed all these cases and written about them exclusively for PokerListings. Now poker enthusiasts can find out more about what she thinks about these cases, and those listening in live can call in to discuss the topics, ask questions or talk about anything else poker-related.

The number to call in to the show is (810) 496-3428 in the U.S. Canadians can call (519) 913-2250, and U.K. residents can call 0207-993-6143.

If you miss the live broadcast of the show, it will still be available to listen to afterward on demand at
