Why didn't you report it to the sites themselves so they can look at hand history.   The police can't do a thing about offshore sites. 


I didn't have such a problem.  I won a lot, lost a lot....in the end won more than I lost.

    OUCH.  I have a friend that plays at Full Tilt and he averages a good $1500-$4000 a month in extra income from poker.  He's going to cry when he hears this news.

    Is your friend ok?  That's a great amount of extra income each month....but when it's gone households can change quickly.  Glad I don't play poker and was a member of that site; winning that amount of money monthly...I would be totally devasted!!!!!!!!

    All things are possible to those that believe!!!!!!Wink

      This government can not stand the thought of someone making money without confiscating some as tribute to their gross mismanagement of the money they confiscate from us.

        I'm not sure what the law is today, but, in my younger days, I was always perimtted to deduct my gambling losses from my gross income as long as I had proof on paper that I had actually lost the money. My winnings, of course, fell into the classification as taxable income. And this is the thing about online poker - can one get a written statement of winnings/losses? If you can't, you're screwed by law.
