The Absolute Poker Scandal

This site went online with the purpose of sharing the facts about online poker's darkest side, in the days after the most serious scandal to date, the Absolute Poker Scandal in 2007. To make a long story short, the former operational chief of AP, A.J. Green, was able to see his opponents' cards and naturally dominated the games stealing millions from helpless opponents.

Do all the scandals mean it's not safe to play online poker?

The Absolute Poker scandal hit the online poker industry hard. Players will always doubt the safety of online poker, and after "Black Friday" the very same company underlined the fact that US players in particular have to be extremely cautious when selecting the poker room they want to play online poker with. Personally I would not play online poker if I was living in the US, but if not a free country then at least it's a free world we live in and everyone has to make their own decision.

There are still several gaming operators risking their business, in different degrees, by accepting US players. In reality this means that all of them could potentially face a shut-down in the future but most importantly is the question of whether or not players will get their money back from the poker room if that day should come.

Initially I wanted to describe each of the poker rooms that has realistic depositing methods, and sufficient sources to withstand presure by the DoJ, but after completing the research Bodog was only place I felt I honestly could recommendIn my opinion it's safest place for the American people to play online poker.

Bovada.lv is the new US facing brand of Bodog - a world reknown brand, founded by business pioneer Calvin Ayre. This company is run well and would certainly be prepared for any move by the DoJ. US players are more welcome than ever at Bovada Poker and would have sufficient funds to pay back players in all cases.

The games are the most underestimated on the web in my opinion. There are terrible players, even at the highest levels, and big bucks to be made if you know your game. Plus, the software is brilliantly simple and extremely faster than most other poker softwares out there.

The obvious choice for US poker players at this time is Bovada.lv !
