    Yeah - like - really? Hmmm do I have to work?
    I viewed this info at:

    FOR US PLAYERS ONLY - (Maybe?) I think they are just stopping betting for US Players.

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    I'm not a poker player - except video - but I thought if anyone was playing Online Poker at PokerChamps you might want to check your accounts now.

    The letter the blogger at pokerchaos got this email:

    Like I said this is directly quoted from that blog - but I thought you'd like to know, just in case you had any monies in there - whatsoever.

    Good Luck.

    It's taken a while but Betfair have finally communicated an official position on the exclusion of US players at Poker Champs:


    The decision to close US accounts is not a direct response to recent developments involving BetonSports. It has been the long standing position of BetFair not to accept U.S. players. PokerChamps, now that it is owned by
    BetFair, has had to come into line with this business decision. We are
    sorry for the inconvenience this causes.

    With regard to your other question- Betfair Poker is currently a
    licencee of Cryptologic. In the near future Betfair Poker will be
    joining an updated version of the Poker Champs platform. Both brands
    will remain separate but player liquidity will be shared.

    The updated Poker software will maintain the look and feel of Betfair
    Poker and Poker Champs but will incorporate a number of new features
    e.g. choice of educational video content, player profile, player search
    and map, VIP club, new languages, bigger cash (ring games). Unquote

    Is this a start of things to come?
    Are we going to see other Poker rooms (followed by casinos) follow suit?

    Could the the latest arrests have a bearing on this?

    Will be interesting to watch how this pans out.

    Since the Betonsports arrest the B2B Network, Eurobet, Poker4ever and Everest Poker have all stopped accepting US players. I seriously doubt any poker room that has a large percent of their player base in the U.S. would do this. It would be suicide and I think it has become more and more obvious to people that there is more to the Betonsports story then being involved in online gambling. Note that B2B and Eurobet offer sportsbooks. The interesting thing is that Eurobet never allowed US players to play in their sportsbook anyway, only the casino and poker room.

    I guess we will see what happens down the road but I doubt there will be a mass booting of US players. OTOH I bet you will not be seeing execs for these companies changing planes in the US either.
