Feds freeze $30 million of online poker players' assets

Post by Manhater on Wed Jun 10, 2009 3:26 pm

I swear do they think were all serial killers. Like they don't have
nothing better to do. My goodness. It's a good thing I don't have much
invested on these sites. Evil or Very Mad

I heard that's why checks are bouncing from certain sites when they try to cash out. Maybe that's why? Maybe it's not the sites fault. Wonder why spadeclub is legal cause they sent me a check and I was able to cash it.

Well.... I guess this might be showdown time. Yep... it's the river and we need a good card. It's time for ALL online poker players to step up and call this bluff! Let's ALL get in touch with our congress men and women and let them know how we feel about the game of poker. Poker IS a game of skill and not just another form of gambling. We need to express ourselves at this time in the history of online poker and make our views and concerns known. Yes, this may very well change online poker a great deal, but WE as online poker players have a great opportunity here to write the history books on online poker! We could just sit back on our backsides and let the chips fall where they may... or we can be the aggressor and take control of the pot and come out a winner! Let's take this flop we have been presented and show our lawmakers we indeed have the best hand! There are some 10,000,000 online poker players in this country! We can make a difference!

If you haven't seen anything on this... here is a link to a video! (chefjimmy posted this on his site)

What a shame...no private avenues anymore...the feds can come in your home and do as they like....now they have a right to cyber F%%$uck your online poker cash? This type of thing has gone way 2 far and will only get worse....im in agreement that something needs to be done to protect the PLAYERS from this type of harrasment

They (the feds) have taken care of the Immigration problems the terrorists and all the other National threats so now all they have left is to claim we (poker players)are the only threat left to the sanctity of this great (FREE???) nation

I think this is really shitty them freezing the money. It is lame and i wish they just find a way to tax poker and let poker helps us out through these tough money times in the goverment. It could not be that hard to tax poker i dont think. I understand poker machines being banned in my state but not playing poker.
