I didn't see anything from the OP that he tried to circumvent the restrictions in place. He tried to enter a tourney and was told no and left it at that. If that is true then I don't see where the conflict would be.

Hell I try almost every update to see if it would screw up and let me play!!

keep reading, they are siezing any and all accounts that try to play in the USA, regardless of intent. They point to the pop up that most have disabled stating that play in the US is not allowed, and that ignorance of the rules is not an excuse

you still get another pop up warning when you try to enter the tourney or table and as the OP is stated he didn't try to circumvent around this just merely attempted to and was told "no"

this will be good to follow and i hope sable keeps us updated on how it works out for him

Wow. That's just brutal. I wonder how many people have lost their accounts that way.

Well l'm back home and ready to play again. My acct is in tack. There is on way you can play in any Us state no matter were you are registered as long as you are on a U S network you will get that pop up to bad so sad for our US Friends, I heard that some U S judge overturned the decision made in 20111and online gambling will be allowed again let's hope this is true for are USA players. You can play all the play money games you want in the USA.
