    Yeah, me neither. Decided breaking even on college basketball wasn't really worth it anymore since all the brutal beats were making me hate my life. If I were still betting the fact that they basically are emailing people and telling them they are cut off effective immediately would have pissed me off. Why not give people a little notice so they can move their money where they want it.

    Didnt just get shut down but I dont think its ever been available in the US. But PinnacleSports is by far the best book there is and its not even close

    I just don't understand how these are good business moves for these company. I can't even imagine how much money PartyPoker cost themselves by pulling out of the US Market. Meanwhile it's been 5+ years and nothing has happened to Full Tilt or Pokerstars as a result of them having US customers. I don't understand what the risk is for these companies to take on US customers.
