When internet poker was legal for US players, if you joined a poker site through TaigaBridge received 20% off all your book purchases for as long as your account remained active, and I was happy to accept payment via Neteller or direct transfer on any sites we both played at. I will resume that service at such time as it becomes easier to play online from the US.
