I just bubbled (9th of 87 both times) my 2nd straight stud8 tourney and I came to the boards to cool down. Maybe having no Americans around for awhile will save me lots of frustration, lol. Looking forward to the action in the guaranteed tourneys while you're gone tho... (don't worry, you'll be back eventually. I'm sure all the big sites have great lawyers that will ensure you can play with no problems)
Yeah, with the Americans gone, you can finish 9th out of 9 instead of 9th out of 87.

LMAO, what good does it do to keep a bankroll up if you can never touch it?? :club:
Cdplayer was making the statement that you could play for money and withdrawal winnings, you just cannot make deposits. This new law would be blocking the transfer of money TO gaming sites, it does nothing to block money coming IN. So just don't bust out and you can continue to play.

I don't understand these sites just bailing when online poker is not prohibited by the law, just the transfer of funds to poker sites from US citizens. Neteller isn't bailing yet. Aren't they making millions every day. Why cut that off earlier than you have to? Full Tilt says they are staying for good, or in the words of our esteemed Presidente, "Bring it on". Glad to see at least one online company has the balls to stand up for what is right.

What happened to the 270 days for this to be implemented ? Why did all the sites jump ship today ?

Deeeeeeep breath. Cause I am sure Jaque, Internet Forum Poster, did more research on this issue than say Pokerstars, Full Tilt or even our own FCP. One post about the sky falling doesn't make it so. He is sadly mistaken if he thinks the banks are going to have any easy time blocking EFT's, let alone all the things he says in his post. Just my opinion but as soon as the US loses the case at the WTO against Antigua, things will get better, not worse. I could be totally wrong but I think now is the worst time. Only getting better from here.

I'm with RDog.I realize this is serious, but I really think a lot of it is being blown way out of proportion.

That was just one of the many links I found that made me depressed about this whole thing. I dont know...I just have a horrible feeling about all of this.

i agree and have some of the same feelings... i have a real bad feeling about this **** and while i do agree some things are being blown out of proportion, i also think others aren't being focused on enough - mainly, is your regular internet donator/donk going to keep playing online after this legislation? i'm not convinced, although obv i hope i'm wrong.

i think for now its possible very soon (within like 3-5 months) that all the sites may possibly stop US players but in the future (within 1-1.5 years) it will be legal again

I don't see that. I don't think the law made it illegal to play poker, just to deposit money. I think the big problem is that the games will dry up to an extent because the casual players (donkeys) won't be able to deposit over and over again. I do think that this could serve to separate the best players from those that were only able to beat the really bad players though. You're probably right that down the road (2 years or so at minimum) it will be fully legal and taxed.

Did the e-mail mean that the players had no way to even remove their money at all? I'm not in any of those states, but I'm just curious.
