    Such as "Doyle's Room".
    It's my understanding that these three are all owned by the same group. That's why they were all indicted together. If this one goes through you can bet other sites will be indicted soon.

      Many of the big pros have stakes in these companies, but you'll never be able to really know. They all used shells corporations from one country and have operations in another country. The pros are paid fees instead of getting proceeds so they can stay out of trouble.

      The feds are going to lose this case big time anyways.

        I could be wrong but I do not believe they are owned by the same group. I do concur it's possible other sites will be subject to the same drill in the not too distant future.

        All I know is I'm sweating bullets over the $17 I have in Pokerstars !!!!!! Might have to file for bankruptcy.

          I use bodog and am not worried about it. The company is not tied to the US and the owner knows not to step foot on US soil.

                Apparently they have been reopened. For US citizens the reason is to allow them to withdraw funds (question coming up about this), but foreigners are allowed to gamble as normal.

                Q: If US citizens are engaging in what everyone knows is an illegal activity here in America, why would they be allowed to get their money back?
