Only players located outside the U.S. can play on the sites now. People located within the U.S. can only play at the "play money" tables on Pokerstars etc. Two other sites do accept american players for real money games though: www.doylesroom.com and www.carbonpoker.com . Both reputable BUT in the case of Doyle's room they only offer Hold Em and Omaha. Carbon offers alot of games but not many players play there since the majority are on Poker Stars, Full Tilt etc...

It's not corrupt, it's just logical. They couldn't stop us from playing on the sites since they are located outside the U.S. so the logical thing to do is try to cut off the process of sending and receiving money to these sites within the U.S. and it's territories (guam, puerto rico, US virgin islands etc.). Even if they didn't pass this law and went after players it would be impossible and right to privacy laws can be a grey issue.
But anyhow the banks, credit card companies, wire services were not charged because in this case they were the "victims" and not the ones committing the crime. The banks etc. were tricked into processing the payments to and from the poker sites. Technically because the law is on the books the Dept. Of Justice is correct BUT the law is just BS to begin with.

Yes it is total BS. It's really hyprocritical. Even worst when they exempted horseracing, lottery, fantasy football from that law. Apparently poker causes more problem gamblers and access for children then the lottery and other gambling games run or licensed by the Gov't lol Poker is a skill game & it causes no more or less problem gamblers whether online or offline then any other casino or gambling game. I would bet their are more lottery players then poker players. There are no victims. I like playing poker, the poker sites provide that service for me to play and the banks provide the means for funding my account or cashing a check received from the sites. Where is the crime? Hell, it helps the economy in my opinion. The banks make alot of fee's and such from it and if the Gov't made online poker legal the U.S. would make alot on taxes and regulation.
