Im just thinking, Those sites that shut down did something darn up like (illegal) transactions with those banks. U know like fraud and so on and so on. So the goverment came after dat behind. But think about it, new site, new deposit method, and back to the tables. I don't know if it's that easy but just a thought. Its kinda like the sites fault though, They should have just stop the credit card process back in 06 and just stick with the legal method of depositing your funds to your account (WU) but greed got to them and all US players are darn up. So once again the goverment came after dat behind. Sorry for the US players but cant u just go to another poker site that up and running that accept US players and WU your money into your account. Dont know but just a thought

These sites are offshore so I think WU will be no problem

but will the goverment come after the US players next???

HMMM. Looks like if you have your bank account involved with any online gambling, you might be fucked but I could be wrong.

Am I?

Figures these Washington rat person would pull some garbage like this just as I've been building a decent bankroll. I've got a local I've used for since the mid 90's who has always been top notch, hell he ought to be considering I've probably bought him a new car through the years. Like most everybody else though I like just being able to pick n' click on my own schedule instead of the local's time frame. I've got some cash in 2 online accounts and wondering what the hell to do. I'm sure a couple of u will remember Millennium a few years back where they took down the owner in Texas or some BS but I got up and was ready to turn in back when I used to call 'em in and the damn line rang like 50 times lol then someone finally picked up and pretty much summed it up as me being SOL. Don't want the same thing to happen here so I'll try to stay on top of it but I'm a bit worried to find one of these damn Govt. Seized WARNINGS on either or both my online books?? If so it'll make 3 darn-jobs outta my money after I was up good, why can't this garbage go on after I've lost my behind and available balance is $0.00

Here is my take on 3 the major poker sites getting shut down, and think about how popular they are and how much we see them on tv through advertisements and such.  I would consider those 3 sites a monopoly because what other site is there that u can play at?  doyles room?  Now think about all the different online sportsbooks there are?  So fuckin many of them, if the fbi does seize them there is no way they can do so to all of them.  Besides how the hell would they know which ones have all the money so that they can collect the maximum amount of fines?  Its not like these poker sites which are way too well known, if i can think of one site they might go after it might be say sportsbook.com but who the darn cares about them anyways.  They have always had a failing grade per se when it comes to payouts, if they go after a handful of sportsbooks then so be it because there should still be the handful of books that we know who can still be in business. 

Having said all of that i am definitely going to consider moving to las vegas sooner rather than later.

like everything else, follow the money. there are no morals, no virtue left in this country. Big Brother doesnt believe you can wipe your own behind let alone make choices such as playing online poker or throwing $100 on a football game

just remember...the STATE RUN LOTTERY is completely friggin legal because the mafia gangsters in Trenton, Albany, etc get their cut. it goes to fund education right? and the Indian casinos are fine as well because they are on "sovereign land".

remember, your State (wisconsin, new jersey etc) is sovereign from the federal government. you are protected under the 10th amendment and will not be violating the interstate commerce clause if all of your players and servers etc are in state. Nullify these fool in DC. its no different than california allowing medical marijuana "violating" federal drug laws

this is a lot of money to have casinos give to politicians over the years. they use their money and influence to shut down the competition. its a simple formula and has worked for a long long time.

you do NOT want online poker legal or state sanctioned because you do not want them running it

This attack on gambling started in Bush's time in office, so really get your facts straight before you make posts that make you look like a complete jackass.



Um, this is a Democratic Administration that took this action.

You are an Obama voter. You simply can't bring yourself to criticize him.

2 friggin piece of garbage republicans were designers of the whole attack on gambling.

Senator John Kyl and Congressman Bob Goodlatte started this whole nightmare. This was all done under Bush's time in office.


And yet a Democratic President, one you voted for and continue to support, took excessive action in enforcing the law.

Hypocrite much?

I think this is good news, in an overall sense. Yesterday's action tells me that the Feds are about to legalize online poker - from legitimate companies that have been obeying the rules so far. 

There are online poker laws being debated in at least 15 states right now. It's gonna happen one way or another. 

These three companies, in particular, have flouted the law for the better part of a decade, while the American gaming companies have been forced to stay out, along with most of the UK companies. And PartyPoker paid some ridiculous fines as well to get back in good graces with the Feds. 

What happened yesterday was a power play by the American government reminding everybody that you don't flout their laws and get away with it. And you sure as well don't expect to do it and then walk into the newly opened market unbruised. 

Legal, unobstructed online poker is coming, but these three companies will miss out until they pay up too.
