Three largest online poker sites shut down by FBI

Is it just a coincidence the Justice Department moved against the foreign online poker companies days after Washington D.C announced they were entering the online poker business?

As we speak, nobody residing in the U.S.A can play online poker for even 2 cents. What exactly is the difference between playing online from our homes and playing in a casino?

The difference is whether or not Unscrupulous Scam has figured out a way to get 40% of the take for doing 0% of the work.

New Black Panthers intimidate voters in Philadelphia in the 2008 Election & Eric Holder determines that there was no crime, but somebody actually stimulates the economy and they are arrested !?

Sounds like the oil companies. I filled my car in December for $33 and for that today, I can get a little over half a tank of gas.

OUCH.  I have a friend that plays at Full Tilt and he averages a good $1500-$4000 a month in extra income from poker.  He's going to cry when he hears this news.

The article estimates 15 million American online players. Who knows the amount of revenues being lost.

Why didn't you report it to the sites themselves so they can look at hand history.   The police can't do a thing about offshore sites. 

 

I didn't have such a problem.  I won a lot, lost a lot....in the end won more than I lost.

Is your friend ok?  That's a great amount of extra income each month....but when it's gone households can change quickly.  Glad I don't play poker and was a member of that site; winning that amount of money monthly...I would be totally devasted!!!!!!!!

This government can not stand the thought of someone making money without confiscating some as tribute to their gross mismanagement of the money they confiscate from us.

johnph77's avatar - avatar

I'm not sure what the law is today, but, in my younger days, I was always perimtted to deduct my gambling losses from my gross income as long as I had proof on paper that I had actually lost the money. My winnings, of course, fell into the classification as taxable income. And this is the thing about online poker - can one get a written statement of winnings/losses? If you can't, you're screwed by law.
