April 15 marks the first anniversary of Black Friday when the US Department of Justice seized domain names and handed down indictments in a shock move that shut off online poker to millions of US citizens.

The Poker Players Alliance is taking opportunity of the anniversary to re-energize its campaign for the legalisation of online poker. The PPA website has been transformed with a powerful call to action: “Never fold in the fight for America’s greatest card game.”

The poker advocacy group has produced a commemorative Black Friday Poker Chip logo that can be downloaded directly from the home page. Members and supporters are encouraged to display this, other campaigning banners and a video on their own websites and to distribute the message as widely as possible on social media.

In the week before the anniversary the PPA is holding a “Never Fold Money Bomb” fundraiser. All funds raised will be used to advocate for poker players rights to play for money online.

A distinguished group of players and supporters has been assembled by the PPA to promote the “Never Fold” message in the mainstream media:

  • Former Senator Alfonse D’Amato, PPA Chairman
  • Greg Raymer, 2004 World Series of Poker Champion
  • Select Members of Congress
  • John Pappas, Executive Director of the PPA
  • Rich Muny, PPA Vice President of Player Relations
  • Patrick Fleming, PPA Litigation Support Director
  • PPA State Directors
  • Local Poker Players
