DEVILFISH POKER OUT OF US MARKET

Devilfish Poker no longer accepting wagers from U.S. players

Devilfish Poker has joined those sites that have decided to exclude US players in the wake of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.

According to a notice on the site US players are being automatically blocked from entry and: "Neither the Service Providers nor Devilfish Poker Limited intend by their continued operation of the Devilfishpoker Site to solicit wagers or custom of any kind from Residents of the United States of America (including such Residents seeking to make use of the Site whilst temporarily resident outside the United States).

"Any attempt by United States Residents to make use of the Devilfishpoker Site will result in their account(s) being closed down without warning."

This poker room is owned by a British player, if memory serves me right. Many British managers have been badly rattled by the BetonSports and Sportingbet arrests in the USA, and by comments on both sides of the Atlantic that suggest extradition could be a real danger.

It may be that the owner of this site is one of those and has decided not to take the risk (as a tournament player he probably needs to travel to the States from time to time)
