Well to be fair about this I believe the laws against online gambling here in the USA relate primarily to the payment processor and the host of the game. The players themselves are fairly safe. There is quite a bit of discussion on other parts of the web about using VPNs to still play.
I love your businesss sense for a GREAT opportunity to help people to continue doing what they love since it's not illegal. So yes I am going to help out the people who have opted in to my newsletters YES I AM.
At some point, the poker companies will prolly be forced to block all us based addresses from playing anything but play-money. Then you will need a PO box or fake address outside .us to be able to play..
Wow. I even didn't know that online poker was prohibited in US. I am from Europe and I used to play almost daily, but since I came to America I never had time for that. Few days ago was thinking to do that again but now I see that it's impossible...
The only issue beyond colcation is the depositing of funds and withdrawing. Now you could still western union or do other methods to get the money in. None the less this is a pretty big deal considering the market cap of the 3 online poker companies had they been public would be approximately 30 billion as of last thursday night before the shutodown and seizure happened
Sometimes I am shocked with American laws. I think in the same way as Parick. My pocker account is registered in Ukraine and i have relatives there, so I can ask them to help with withdrawal etc. But it's not comfortable.
