Definition

Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). This piece of legislation was passed into law in 2006 and makes it more difficult for US players to deposit and withdraw money from online poker rooms. It also blurs the line between what is and is not legal for US poker players wanting to play online.

Example

I wish the games were still as soft as they were pre-UIGEA
