The whole thing reaching at the end point according to this.
I dont see it getting jail time.

Cant say though it has changed for the better for the players.
There is a higher amount of insurance now playing in an online site, but still
less promotions, and of course less greerolls Smile

I don't think Black Friday has changed things for the better because after that all players from United States of America, France, Spain and Italy they were blocked to play with the rest of the world. There is a great chance to make money but without them we lost high chances.

Yes Calicul , things are still worse , despite some improvement or developments in regulations since then . Still many restrictions , and many regulated countries cannot join larger players' pools to increase the prises and the interst for the game , such as in France .

Anyway , better for the US government to try to find ways to bring poker again in the USA , all states, fix the mess they created then , and not keep on chewing the same gum , this Black friday witch hunt has to end , leave Scheinberg alone and cut the cr***
