Some of you may remember the CEO of the poker site getting busted by the feds for online gambling... Well, seems we are seeing repercussions...

PokerChamps | Important notice

Dear Customer,

As part of a recent upgrade, PokerChamps has performed a system change that begins the process of moving to a new platform. We have also incorporated geo-location software which enables us to implement a long standing and consistent Group Company policy of not permitting access to individuals in specific target countries. This applies to individuals from the United States, China and Japan.

You have been identified as residing in one of those countries. However if you believe we are mistaken as to your country of residence, please contact us on

Unfortunately this means you are no longer able to use your pokerchamps account or open a new pokerchamps account. Pokerchamps is sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, and will endeavour to make the process of account closure and funds withdrawal as painless as possible.

If you have any questions, please contact our support team on

Kind regards,
The PokerChamps Team

Now that is some fucking bullshit.  With extra bullshit sauce on it.  And a side of bullshit.

So fucking disgusting that the government can't just leave us the fuck alone, especially when no one gets hurt by it.

For the record, I haven't been kicked of Bugsy's Club yet.  It's a pretty good site.
