Our Freedom Threatened - Online Poker

It has been called Black Friday, the day the FBI seized control of Pokerstars, Absolute and Full Tilt sites in the USA. In my opinion, this is the corrupt government raking in more tax. Playing poker in your own home does no harm to anyone. It is harmless entertainment, not money laundering or illegal gambling. It is also good for the economy as a whole.

“When Pokerstars, Full Tilt and Absolute Poker left the US market, 95 percent of the market share for US poker players absolutely disappeared and with that so did $200 million worth of marketing money and advertising money.”

I hope that US government will allow online poker games in other countries. Because being poker player, we are always looking for bonuses. Like William Hill Poker does, they are openhanded giving lots of poker bonus.
