Party like it's 1999
It's nice to see Poker Stars and Full Tilt toeing the line as far as not banning U.S. players. The rationale -- the federales have had a stick up the butt of online poker for years anyways, so how is this new bill any different? There isn't a sea change of difference for me, since I've had my Party account closed since the spring, in a failed attempt to sneak rakeback. I was just about to reopen my Party account when all this stuff happened.
It'll be interesting to see what a large site like Party does now, as two major systems have decided to buck the bill.
