If I could change anything in the world: For everyone to enjoy good health, which would include finding a cure for celiac disease so that I could eat pizza again in my lifetime.
If I could change anything in the poker world: It would be legal to play everywhere. NYC would become a poker mecca, and AC and Foxwoods would probably go out of business.
