PokerStars announced today that it has returned nearly $ 100 million to U.S. players whose accounts were frozen since the fateful Black Friday.
After Friday, April 15, when the U.S. government closed down the accounts of poker at Absolute Poker, Full Tilt and PokerStars, players'money was frozen in their accounts.
That is until yesterday, when PokerStars announced in a press release that it had returned $ 100 million to U.S. players. PokerStars has entered into an agreement with the Department of Justice of the United States on April 20 that allowed players to do the PokerStars cashout. The result of this agreement finally entered into force and the funds have been repaid.
Full Tilt Poker, who made ​​a similar agreement with the government still no confirmation of good news and the players are still waiting for the money.
Already at Absolute Poker Games by Blanca although he has also reached agreement with the Department of Justice U.S., there are doubts. Because unlike the other rooms, the. with not been returned, and only last week announced a cessation of all sponsored contract with the room.

Yeah! Nothing from FT at this time though. Hope they allow us U.S. players to cashout, but I'd rather see something that would allow U.S. players to continue to play. I don't want to cashout and not be able to play on-line. I like playing at FT and PS is fair, but instead of cashing out it be great to be able to get back in with some of the BRM freerolls on FT and play in the SnG's. If I can't play I'd just as well donate my small BR. What I earned was free and it's less then a $100.00 so who cares! Wanting to play!
