Are We Telling the DOJ Which Online Poker Sites to Target?

Sometimes I wonder how much poker news sites are helping to contribute to the visibility of certain online poker sites in the USA[[sitetree_link,id=596]] to the US government. Granted, the DOJ knows what sites are out there, but in all truthfulness, they don't even have to do that much research about which sites are doing well. Hell, we tell them. For example, Pokerscout releases a weekly report about online poker traffic.

Is anyone else besides myself getting tired of hearing about Isildur1 and Jean-Robert Bellande? Seriously. I read in my Twitter timeline today that Bellande has a bankroll of $400. A little while later I read how Isildur1 took another big loss at the tables after booking a big win at the tables. Once and for all, here is the basic storyline for both players: ******* *Jean-Robert Bellande:* I am broke.

There is no other way to put this but to say, I told you so. I said weeks ago that if the Alderney Gambling Control Commission was to reinstate Full Tilt’s license that they would need to show that they are making significant process towards paying US players back. Guess what? That hasn’t happened. Oh, guess what else? The trial was adjourned until the middle of September.

For those of you not following the $1k Ladies Event at the 2011 WSOP, there is one man remaining in the field. At the time that I start to write this, Jonathan Epstein sits around 7th in chips with 12 players left. He very well may be the first, and ironically the last, man to ever make the Ladies Event final table in the history of the World Series of Poker. Here is the question that many are asking: Is Jonathan Epstein the biggest douchebag in the history of poker? Many would say yes to this.

US Government Drops the Bomb on Online Poker

Atomic Bomb
I am not a conspiracy theorist. However, I am a realist. For years now, online poker sites have been finding a way to circumvent the UIGEA and still provide payments to online poker players.   Anyone with any common sense knew that the sites were playing with fire.
