I'm not sure I understand what changed between a week ago and today that would necessitate pulling all the old poker programming. The legality of online poker hasn't changed at all, right? Just a few websites (who from reading this thread, have apparently been up to shady activity re: bank fraud) shut down?

I'm guessing ESPN doesn't want to be broadcasting programs including segments sponsored by companies under indictment for bank fraud, and full of people wearing the logos of said companies. Also, much of that programming was so dependent on poker sites buying the ad space that they likely figured the combination of no more poker site ad buys plus being bad for the image just isn't worth it.

I was already prohibited from playing for real money on Full Tilt due to my residence in Washington state...which is a bunch of bullshit in itself. Now FTP only allows playing for fake money, but the application still works.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

I usually play fake money on both FTP and PS but was going to play the satellites for the WSOP this year, and when I was unemployed it was my source of income for a couple of months. Tax it, put it back online and don't mess with it!

Fox also pulled the PS Big Game out of programming. Espn Poker twitter said this will not mess with the WSOP taping and showing in the channel, but you know attendance will drop at least by half if not even more.

If Libby is to be believed, it was Cheney who told him this information while stating Bush authorized it.
