PS
For those of you hiding under a rock, PokerStars announced earlier in the week that they are no longer serving Washington State residents for real money gaming. This came from the WA Supreme Court's decision that the law that bans online gambling was not unconstitutional. They upheld the law and PokerStars decided that it was time to get out.
