American poker players BANNED from several online poker sites

As of yesterday, no American poker players will be allowed to play games at sites like PokerStars.net, FullTiltPoker.net, Absolute Poker & Ultimate Bet due to U.S. attorney Preet Bharara filing money laundering & fraud charges against the owners of all four of those sites.

No word yet on how this will affect the "PokerStars.net Million Dollar Challenge" & whatever major poker tournaments GSN will air later this year, if there are any; also, "High Stakes Poker" is being sponsored by PokerStars.net this season.

Various sources contributed to this report.
