Here is what The PPA has to say about the latest Federal action against the three major online poker sites.
Former Senator Alfonse D’Amato, Chairman of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA), the leading poker grassroots advocacy group with more than one million members nationwide, issued the comment below on today’s announcement on federal action taken against online poker companies.
“On behalf of the millions of poker players across the country, we are shocked at the action taken by the U.S. Department of Justice today against online poker companies and will continue to fight for Americans’ right to participate in the game they enjoy. Online poker is not a crime and should not be treated as such. We are currently gathering all of the information around today’s announcement and will offer detailed analysis when the full facts become available.”
As it seems to stand right now, American citizens are the only ones having problems registering for tournaments, cashing out, and transferring money from player to player. This being said there could be big overlays in the major Sunday Events if Americans are unable to play in them.
