Um Wow

I was just getting over the tilt monkey and becoming a grinder then the DOJ messes with shit? I have no idea what the ramifications of this are... not sure if you will be able to login tonight.. probably be hard to get any money out though.. Here is another article. I can actually get to FullTilt.com. UB, Absolute, and Pokerstars websites seem to still be down. I have independent confirmation from Canada that Absolute website is not accessible.. Will keep you posted as details come in. Not that I am a news source or anything.

I've been able to get in to every site as of 17:30 EDT. Don't know if this a joke or not but if they want to kick off a second revolution they are going about it the right way. Don't mess with the people's love of vice during economic down turns.

It's no joke. The sites are charged with bank fraud and money laundering billions of dollars. The government alleges that they lied to many banks about what the money was from, and in some cases even bribed banks.

These sites are royally fucked long term.

Loretta's right. Indictment doesn't even deal with poker, the financial hoops Stars and FTP had to jump through are easy targets for the DoJ. All you can hope for is a netteller resolution where we get $$$ back at some point in the future. But those three sites are dead men walking long term.

So waffles, HU 4 ROLLZ now? lol.
