    Round 2 of US Inditments

    As the US Federal Government continues to monitor Online Poker,

    I see the writing on the wall, found this in Pokerplayernewspaper.com

    "Initially, it seemed as though the Feds unleashed a second wave of crackdowns because Doyle’s Room was one of the few online poker sites still operating in the wake of Black Friday. However, they original scope of their investigation appeared to be sportsbooks and other online gaming not related to online poker. Doyle’s Room was a recent acquisition by one of the indicted companies and shut down by its mere association.

    However, even if you’re playing on one of the few sites still in operation, such as the Merge Network, the second round of indictments does not bode well. Based on what we’ve seen already, it’s my opinion, MERGE is the future target for the Feds and it’s not a question of if they will get shut down, but when will it happen.

    Ive been warning all you.

    Barack needs funds to pay for their debt.

    Loss of consumer goods (poker funds) equals a downgrade for their boosting of international currency through such trading aspects of their own money compared to international currency which is oil, metals, and energy---so I kinda don't blamed the Feds that much. Too bad for U.S. plrs, though.

    Why don't you figure out some way to do something positive about poker sprocket? All you do is post negative tripe about MERGE, Carbon, internet poker, and anything else you can doom and gloom about. You're a negative bastard and you should learn to do something positive in your pathetice negative life.

    I agree with you Ricki, and in general with your more positive outlook on things. Sprocket is nothing but a negative doomsayer and seems to have some perverse love for being that way.

    It will be MUCH MUCH MUCH harder to go after Merge.

    Keep in mind a couple things

    #1 Merge changed their domain to .ag
    #2 The other poker sites weren't prosecuted for poker, it was for banking fraud
    "And Shepherds we shall be. For thee, my Lord, for thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."

    A lot of players fail to understand this one sentence, and that is why all the panic about the current sites still operating in the U.S.

    Crazy, I didnt know it was for banking fraud. I hope they dont ever shut carbon down. I love the software and the tournaments. Just dont like the limited withdrawal options.
