Default TwoGun/Ozone's Official 'I Told You So' Thread

For over 3 years, we've been talking about how Stars, UB, Full Tilt (especailly Full Tilt) were spitting in the face of the FBI/DOJ.

Hell, a year ago when there was noise that something like this might happen, we were pretty open in saying 'what the hell are you doing FTP' in this Weekly Shuffle.

Or wait, it goes back even further than that.

In this Weekly Shuffle, we talked about how the US poker market is not fragemented and going after the owners of the few big sites would work if the FBI/DOJ had the tools/ability to do so.

Most people in the poker world thought of Full Tilt as no different from a Harrahs or any other 'totally legal' company. They always had their heads in their asses. We didn't. While there's no way we could make money/capitalize on it, we do get a very big fat 'I told you so.'

I will make one more prediction. Full Tilt/UB are pretty much finished. Stars will survive but they will probably axe US players soon and try to settle with the DOJ (like Party did).
All is not lost in the poker world for US players. Regulated online poker seems like it has life, at least at the state level. While I'm a bit worried the governments will screw it up, I do think some form of 'fully legal' online poker will happen in the US within 5 years.

To be fair, I think he meant to post this on one of his knitting forums cause it is obvious it doesn't belong here.

Guys, I think I figured out why TwoGun never posts here. He's obviously an assistant US attorney and only after they released the indictment could he return to posting on Ptips.
