Yep.

Based on US law this is illegal. That is why Party and others don't accept players from the US.

As i see it the US wants to stop its people to play online and introduced the UIGEA law package. A lot of poker rooms responded and pullled out of the US market. (At that time Party was the biggest room) Stars and Full Tilt continued to offer games to US players and took over the top positions.

This investigation will show if the Full Tilt construction of its business (a company developing the software is based in the US, but the company offering the games is basen in the channel islands) falls under the US laws or not.

Its a shame if all online sites are removed from america. America being the home of big poker. That might change if players cant play from home and win there way into tournaments like the WSOP.

What is happening is the US is jamming a thumb up its citizens asses and telling them they can s**t when the govenment lets them, unlike the US to try and controll PPL.
On the bright side now they can have the thumb removed for free.

As shokaku points out it does not fall under US law as its operated overseas.
But they wil give up on that and go for the money laundering charges as they know all outher countries will have to comply.
Funny how they can all have responsability to carry agun but not trusted to spend thier money as they wish.

They can spend their money as long as the Government gets a cut, like in Vegas. The biggest gambling country in the world does not allow online gambling... Aww crap!

It's like so many states are FOR the death penalty, but AGAINST abortion (like with rape).
You can take life and you can't take life....
Not expressing an opinion on these matters, just stating a contradiction in terms.

As to the gun thing, I think they see it as an extention of their dicks, no?

I used to live in the states a loooong time ago, by the way.

I can see how the government could get their panties in a twist if they are losing out on taxes from winners. But i thought that internet poker was taxable. And it shouldn't be hard to track the big winners.

I really hope all will be solved very soon. I can't believe even FT have problems with law. Seems very strange to me

Clearly they just want to make an example out of FTP, i doubt that did anything that other rooms don't do. Someone always has to suffer when ever US wants to tell ppl don't "F" with us.
