Two years investigation to finally get them. Imagine being a regular in these
two places and not having a clue what is going on, like the ones
that went to play when the raid was on.
Illegal places after all. But even if they were authorized, how hard would
have been, being used for laundering again Smile

If state police would control more than local police would have a lot of surprises. Money laundering is everywhere even in the online area. This can be detected if it is thoroughly researched. Now the defendants will have to fight with the long arm of the law.

How come I am thinking about first that somebody probably either could not get a membership in this 'social club' and became angry about it or did not put down enough money to grease the palms at the police station. Some serious oversight lacking with the case Big Smile

Of course For those players who played in these poker clubs without knowing about their criminal activities will be a shock .... You have been playing in a poker club for several years ... you like everything ... and suddenly it turns out that it was a criminal money laundering organization. .. it is shocking to any person .... But of course such crimes are very sad and discredit poker

This may also be a complaint made by rivals and in this way some people have escaped to the competition. We can not know for sure, but the world is bad and this thing can be considered. It is not the first time that certain illegal people tell the police to others but in a different manner...

I mean these kinda off the table games are present everywhere, the police just don't bust them anymore because it's a waste of time/resource for all involved.

for example, in Russia there are only a few places where you can legally play poker ... all other tournaments in other places are completely illegal ... and therefore at any time you can get a criminal prosecution for playing poker ... It is rather sad but such We are ridiculous laws .... I hope that this will change someday ... I would like to have no restrictions for the game

When the competition bribes the police to arrest other illegal people they will have to earn customers and money. It is not excluded that this has happened in the same way. I do not think here it was needed oversight, that cost a lot of money. It was something premeditated by the ,,siphons''.

It is not uncommon to find these people who spend money playing poker and because they are bets the police is closer but in every big business you can find money launderers I would like that as well as these cyan investigations will investigate others over the internet which I personally I think they are a round business.
