I'm sorry for all players that have accounts at absolute poker and ultimate bet. There is simply too much evidence on the table about the outcome of this poker company and their poker platforms, ultimate bet and absolute poker: bankruptcy.
I think an agreement with the us law enforcement would be just a official say they are on bankruptcy and not by any means a solution. The problem is that the majority of poker traffic on these sites were from us, so now the tables are pretty much empty, no players means no rake, so here you have the answer.
I also feel bad for the pros, i saw some good names there but i'm sure they'll find other sites to get sponsored. I think that only pokerstars and full titl poker are out of the woods yet after the black friday.

Well it is true, these pokersites are bankrupt and can not return the poker player's funds anymore, that is bad karma.

Makes sense. Those rooms have serious problems with the cash flow and those players were aimed at the US market, and so keeping them is quite useless.
