PPA Head: “Hundreds Of Millions” Due In Online Player Refunds
There are a lot of people who are worried whether they are ever going to be receiving their money out of some of the online poker sites that were the subject of the Department of Justice’s attack on the online poker industry. They are players of all levels, and one of them is the head of the Poker Players Alliance, perhaps the leading advocacy group for online poker players.

Pappas is in the business of organizing poker players, showing enough in the way of strength to push bills that would bring online poker in particular under some form of government regulation.
