This is just a temporary solution that will end up buying his site time if the US DOJ decides to shut it down. While I personally think the security risks of Bitcoin outweigh the conveniences, considering that online poker probably isn't going to be regulated anytime soon in the States - I can't blame him for trying. As long as his poker site doesn't get as big as Poker Stars, it probably won't become a target for the U.S. government. Bovada will be the first if the DOJ decides to still go after operators....although I think they are finished following the DOJ's new stance on the Wire Act.
