PocketFives.com, one of the largest poker forums on the internet, announced on Tuesday that it would pull advertising for online poker rooms that still accept customers from the United States.
PocketFives co-founder Adam Small said in a statement:
“I’d like to be clear that this should not be taken as a denouncement of any U.S.-facing room specifically, nor as a statement regarding the trustworthiness of the rooms that have decided to continue offering their services to U.S. players. We at P5s have a great deal of respect for a number of these companies and the individuals behind them. That said, after seeing all the issues Full Tilt and UB/AP have had returning player funds, combined with the current difficulty in payouts for the sites that continue to serve U.S. players, we can’t in good faith continue to recommend playing real money games.”
