Yes! The mighty U.S. where freedom is B.S. I've worked and paid taxes since I was 12 years old starting with a paper route and have worked all these years and paid for what freedom. Freedom for the U.S. to tell me what I can do or can't do. No real freedom here. When I can't play poker without the governments approval then we all know what the word freedom is in the U.S. It's a line of B.S. in which I'm sick of. The U.S. intervenes in every countries business and wants to dictate how the world should be ran. Up yours U.S.! Tired of your definition of freedom.


Really good post... the entire truth... Thumbs Up

I feel very sorry about American poker players but the situation is extremely bad for online players in all countries. The panic is spreading and many non-American players are cashing out of FT and PS to be on the safe side. If the sites will not cope with coming wave of cashouts they might become history. The next couple of weeks will be crucial for these poker rooms. I decided not to cash out in haste and appeal that you do the same.

To be honest, it was allways going to happen, FT and PS gave the US law the big "vs" your govenment could not take that, I did not see them doing it to outher govenments such as the french, no they obayed thier laws and went about setting up a site for them to play on, the US had to act on this crime, yep its a crime, poker has not been made illigal for you to play just regulations put in place.
Im actually thinking FT and PS deserve what they are getting, they are greedy and belived they were above the laws....
If I dont like a law for what ever reason, I can not just do what i please, they took a gamble and they lost....heres a song about it...

I heard the news first time in the morning. First thing that i did was to check my pokerstars and full tilt poker accounts. There was an software update on both sites that worked out fine and after the installation was complete i was able to acces my account son both poker sites.
Once i was in nothing bad happend, i mean all my money were there, i could even withdraw, so all was good. After that i opened a few tables and to my surprise there were actually some us players on the tables, not cash tables but tournaments on full tilt poker.
I didn't saw any us player on pokerstars though. I understand now there aren't any us players on full tilt poker either. This situation sucks big time, i hope you can get your money back.

Its in all portuguese tabloids, when i saw it this morning i couldnt believe the names of the poker rooms i was reading, once they are the ones with most credibility among online players. Perhaps this has nothing to do with Pokerstars owners and only involves people who used they acounts to make transfers of huge amounts of money, with excuse of being playing poker.
