Hey guys,

Have you guys heard about this?




Pokershare.com is offering Bluff, Alaska $100,000 to change their name from Bluff, Alaska to Pokershare.com, Alaska. Do you think they can actually change it????

First let me say welcome to tips4poker.

This is an unusual offer for sure but I'm sure it is not the first time an internet company has tried to do this. (maybe the first poker.com)

Is poker even legal in Alaska?

I guess if this is a small town then $100,000 could do a lot of good for the locals but I don't know if I'd want to have to permanently change the name. Maybe they could lease out the name for 5-10 years and see how it worked out. These days even small towns can spend through 100K pretty fast so I think after the money was gone the locals might not love the name any more.
