    What gonna happen to those pros?

    As I read it, the Feds could go after the online pros using the RICO statues...and go after their personal wealth. The foundation for my statement is that the pros, Ivey, Dwan, Negreanu, etc. personally benefited from the activities of the sites that sponsor them. If PS and FT are successfully prosecuted, that establishes that the sites violated the law. And, part of the profits from that illegal activity was paid to the sponsored pros. Thus, although the pros did not violated the law themselves, they profited from the illegal activities of others. Therefore, their "ill gotten gain" is subject to forfeiture. And, if the Feds can show that the pros should have known that they were working for a company who was violating the law, then there could also be additional fines and penalties the pros have to pay.

    There is absolutely 0 evidence that they will find that the pros 'knowingly accepted money from an illegal source'. Case closed. It's that simple, because they DID NOT know anything that these sites were doing with their money, they just knew they were getting paid.

    I am so sorry for all the Fulltilt Pros that cant play anymore on Fulltilt (specialy Gab). They all dont know anything inside Fulltilt i think. I wish all the Best to the complete US Pokerplayer.
    Can the Pros Cashout their Money now ? I heard Fulltilt got the Domains back so that US player can. Someone knows about?

    If that was the case, then a lot of tv channels could also face the same fate, since they accepted money from those sites to air their commercials. I really don't see any of that happening, tho.
