The bad news: It's illegal to operate an online poker room in the US. The good news: It's not illegal for US citizens to play online poker. And the even better news: It's legal to play online poker in the nude.

In the wake of HR 6663, Senate reconvened today and whilst was unable to agree on that bill, did take the time to clarify an earlier ruling, according to AintLuck.com. In March of this year the bill was signed into law making it unlawful to play poker in the nude.

While met with fierce resistance from The Naturist Society - http://www.naturistsociety.com , this bill went largely unnoticed by the majority of the online poker community. When asked for his reaction to this, volatile pro Mike Matusow would only say that's he's experimented with concept of nude online play but "there's nothing gay about that, right?" Other notable players such as Phil Helmuth would only say that what happens in his house, stays in his house.

AintLuck.com goes on to expose how nude poker final became legalized.

Flying under the radar, the reclusive Dutch Boyd took up the cause of these nude loving poker players. Working with the PPA, Dutch figured this was a great way for him to finally find a group of poker players that would accept him and welcome into their fold. After months of lobbying, Dutch was finally able to gain enough swing votes (LOL) from several Senators to pass the resolution.

There are a few things we need to clarify to all you nudists out there (Jenny Woo, Sparky Collins, Tyrone Black):Poker Naturalists beware! Although the new bill makes it legal to now play poker online in the nude, this ONLY applies to play money tables. Bill Frist was quick to issue a statement saying that while he strongly opposes any sort of nude online poker playing, that anyone caught playing real money poker while naked will face stiff (ha ha) prosecution.
