PokerStars homepage over taken by FBI

Today FBI took over PokerStars.com home page. The poker client is still running but the homepage has been brought down. This crack down has been expected for a while since hundreds of web pages over the last months have been taken over by Federal organizations.

Others hit aswell

Both torrent sites and other sites have been hit by law enforcement but this is the first attack on gaming sites operating in the USA. Doing this on a Friday is most certainly deliberate since the PokerStars legal department will not be able to do anything over the weekend.

The situation will undoubtly develop fast over the next few hours.

Full Tilt Poker has also been hit and the world two biggest online pokersites seems to be in a world of trouble.

More to come.
