Now the Final 9 were able to study every moment of the ESPN footage and get an unfair advantage reading their opponents every move. I stopped goin down after that year because of that and the fact it was doubling my cost to attend the event as a smaller website participant.

As far as them ruining the legality aspect for the courts? When the states are hurting too much in their budgets, they will approve online poker for the extra revs, no matter how insignificant we are told it is. I'm just not gonna hold my breath ...
