Surveys show that, after the PR campaign was in full swing, the percentage of Americans who thought it "likely" AIDS would become a full scale epidemic leaped from 51 to 69.

The first and most obvious victims of the government's lies are the 40,000 or so Americans who this year will become HIV-positive, overwhelmingly gay men or poor, inner-city drug users and their sexual partners.

Poker wouldn't be poker without Texas. After all, without Texas, we'd all just be playing plain old hold'em. Without Texas, we wouldn't have some of the game's most enduring legends - and we'd also be without some today's top performers. That mix of the mythical and the modern has made Texas an indelible part of poker, a favor Texas has returned in both live poker rooms and at online poker sites.
We're going to sketch a complete picture of poker in the Lone Star State, with an eye toward explaining the ins and outs of Internet poker rooms, in this Guide to Playing Online Poker in Texas. We kept that in mind when building a list of the best online poker sites in TX, and the result is a list that is, well, big on big. Big on big bonuses and VIP programs.
Big on big deposit options. Big on big games for both tournament and cash game players. In fact, we think we've gone and built the biggest and best list of real money poker rooms you'll find, one we keep fresh with regular updates. As a rule of thumb, a poker site that accepts American players will also accept new customers from Texas. It goes without saying that the rooms we've listed above are all Texas-friendly, but they're far from the only online poker rooms where Texans can play real-money games.
Contact us if you're looking for an online poker site in Texas other than those on our top list. Texas has not had many major changes in its gambling laws in the past few years.
