I'm not sure I understand. Would it mean we can't use neteller?
that's kind of unclear i think, but the point is whether you can use neteller or not, the guy that sees poker on TV and tries to play online with his CC won't be able to. fish will dry up, more sites will block US players (some have already started). This is a horrible think for poker in general, if I was American I would be doing everything I could.

None of the "Big Three" have blocked Americans, and I don't see it happening in the foreseeable future.
According to Petoria, I'm the most hardcore Wings fan in Indy, not Indiana. I call Bullshit.

And I would give anything or kill anyone to be with Julia Roberts, Uma Thurman, Diane Kruger, Elisha Cuthbert, and Elizabeth Shue.

neither do i but it doesnt matter cause im Canadian, although it still effects me in different ways. Can anyone explain to me why pretty much every american and they're dog owns a gun , but now, after however many years they decide that having online gambling is unsafe for its citizens. its god damn ridiculous. Your people are dieing overseas and this what the american goverenment worries about, something that could potentially be a big cash cow for your government.... its really absurd
..ok so what do i do now?..

This bill bars wagering on "games of chance". Maybe we could go to the Supreme Court and prove that poker is a game of skill...Anyway this is truly disappointing.

Jordan, P5's is saying it's the last thing to be voted on tonight, somewhere around 11pm. And I'm watching CSPAN-2 now, and they are voting on the US-Mexico Border Fence (the HR 6061 bill).
Unfortunately upon passage of this bill the Senate determined that, after construction, the U.S. could only afford labor to paint the south-facing side of the fence.
