There are so many different online poker laws in so many jurisdictions around the world. Is online poker allowed where you live? Will you get in trouble for playing it? Is there licensed and regulated online poker in your area? Unless you keep up with poker news closely, it's often difficult to answer this. I found a great site which answers these questions called pokerlaws.org
. Best yet, it's simple, direct, and easy to use. Honestly, I think it's a pretty good resource, and it will be updated frequently.
