" The bill also includes a “bad actor” provision that restricts entities that were involved in internet gambling in the US after the enactment of UIGEA in 2006. There will be a five-year block on such operators, unless they can convince a court that no federal or state law was breached during this time. "
that's OK, according to tableratings the biggest donks are in the US of A.
I think was just total losses. Not losses/player or loss in bb/player. Since on average, poker players lose money (they have to), it makes sense that the country with the most online players loses the most money.
I also agree that the opt in portion of the bill will hurt the total player pool. But certainly Nevada, CA, FL and most of the other big poker states will all opt in. So its mostly states like NY where ppl will be screwed.
