Default Beginning of the end?

These are mostly sports sites but have poker rooms, just makes you wonder how many gambling sites are going to start weeding out US players.

from covers this morning

The Internet betting site Sportsbook.com will not accept new customers from the United States beginning next month.

No reason was given for the decision, which was announced Tuesday. PlayersOnly and Superbook also will not accept new U.S. clients.

The move will not affect current U.S. customers, who can proceed with business as usual.

Sportsbook.com's move comes on the heels of a federal indictment against three major Poker online sites.

Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars and Absolute Poker were charged with bank fraud, illegal gambling and money laundering by the U.S. Attorney's office in New York City.

SportsBook.com sucks anyway. What I think will be interesting to watch is if these places like Bodog and Merge that are taking U.S. players will even want them. I understand payment processing costs are so high for them that deciding not to take U.S. players altogether isn't as far off of an option as people probably realize.
