Down to the felt? (FBI must think they have the nuts.)

End Of An Era? of the Day: FBI Folds Online Poker - The Daily What:

End Of An Era? of the Day: The domains of online poker’s three largest sites — PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker — were seized today by the FBI in what the LA Times calls a potential “death blow to the thriving industry.”
I cashed out PokerStars ages ago and never looked back. I didn't make much, but I knew I needed to quit while I was ahead. I didn't know, but suspected, the Rise of the Machines ('bots) had started anyways. I feel  for anyone with cash in any of the services that can't get at it.

Update: The District of Columbia may be in a position to capitalize on recent developments.
