Who knows, maybe I am dead wrong, but I would hope that our government would realize the amount of money that is being left on the table that they could be receiving by taxing and regulating the industry.

Couple of things:

1.  This is for POKER only.  Sports betting is not on the table for legalization.  So if you want a licensed, taxed, and regulated poker landscape - I think we are headed in your direction.

2.  The method here is nothing short of mafia gangsters by the DOJ.  Is that justified?  Is it really justified to shut down these places at the peril of thousands of Americans money, not counting foreigners who play there legally?

Can you imagine if you lived in Germany, and you played at PS, and had 50K there LEGALLY and today because of the USA you couldnt get your money?  Imagine if Germany placed an indictment on your local bank, and your savings were suddenly gone?

there is that but do we really want the government involved with online gambling.  they are going to darn it up and cut into any margin we may have.  i liked it best when it was sort of illegal and just marginally difficult to fund and withdraw.

I hate what happened today and think its B.S. what they did, just trying to seek a positive that may come out of it. I would be pissed if I had money in 1 of these accounts and I was playing legally, by no means do I agree with what happened today.

My comments not directed at you personally, just more in confusion and frustration.

IMO- the people who fucked you are at ESPN, etc.....


Putting the garbage on every night, with advertising from all of the sites- it's no surprise the the govt finally caught up and found a way to get their paws on it-

Outlaw it first, then reintroduce it with tax implications- kind of like alcohol and prohibition.....

I don't feel sorry for any usa poker players who lost their money...you all knew what you were getting in to when you deposited your money into those sites knowing that as a u.s. citizen you were forbidden to do so for the most part...lesson learned and that is:

.obama is a corporate puppet

The Obama Administration did this.

There is more than 1 Obama voter in this thread whining about it.

It's not a coincidence because today isn't tax day this year, it's the 18th.

funny i started playing pokerstars for the first time in months last night. I goto play today and it says we are sorry but due to government regulations, playing real money tournaments is not allowed in your area. Just my luck this thing happens 12 hours later. 5dimes credit card processors aren't working either. I wonder if this has something to do with that?

Some high-powered Republicans are fighting this tooth and nail...

Former (R) U.S. Sen. Alfonse D’Amato, now chairman of the Poker Players Alliance, which represents more than 1 million U.S. players, said in a statement that the organization was "shocked at the action taken by the U.S. Department of Justice today against online poker companies and will continue to fight for Americans’ right to participate in the game they enjoy. Online poker is not a crime and should not be treated as such."

Van you really think the liquidity of these poker sites is in jeopardy?  The operating structure of this sites would require very minimal capital as a % of deposits I would imagine.  They're just running some software and taking a % of every game.

I would hardly consider that fighting the matter "tooth and nail".
