Online Poker: Procedure launched against the seized playersÂ’ gains

Further to the transfers freezing of the gains intended for 27,000 online poker players done on last Saturday the 6th of June, the ASC or Account Services Corporation has just lodged at the federal Court of South California a procedure asking for the return of this capital. According to this bank, these gains which had to be transferred from this company and that of Allied Systems were illegally seized. So, the ASC plans to demonstrate that the online poker is a game of skill but not an illegal game as the IGBA defines it. Note that three affairs of the same kind has already used the same argument and managed to convince the justice of South Carolina, Pennsylvania and the Colorado.

In its request, the ASC wants at all costs to demonstrate that if the law was made for societies, playing online poker is not thus illegal. So, the fact that the American Department of the Justice and the District of New York seizing these $30 millions due to 27,000 poker players among which the $14 millions were had to be transferred by the ASC is considered as a kind of violation of the constitutional laws of the players. Poker Players Alliance did not delay emitting an official note announcing that it supports this cause and that it will lend help the ASC " to make sure that the voice of the American poker players can be heard and their freedom to practise this game of skill can be protected ".
