        I have shown this to PSO-Staff and hope to have some feedback soon.

              Maybe worth US players considering shipping their banks to non-US players they can trust unless some word comes back as to what is actually happening here.

                Just checked out a bunch of sites, the only one that came up with the warning for me was UB.

                Stars, FT, and AP all worked.

                I've had all 3 clients up and running today too with no problems.

                      I was wondering about other sites and everything showed up fine for me but I am not from the US.
                      Decided to check a sportsbook since I figure they would be under more attack than poker.
                      Here is what they had posted.

                      Important Notice

                          I live in D.C. and I'm able to access the site... For now.

                          Funny that this happens 3 days after Congress let Washington D.C. legalize online gambling. Not just poker, but all sorts of games. All run by some Greek company called Intralot. http://www.washingtonpost.com/entert...HSD_story.html

                          Dammit. This looks like the start of a bad day.
