Bloomberg: ESPN to Remove Poker Ads, Coverage Indefinitely due to U.S. Legal Action

Bloomberg is reporting that ESPN has decided to remove all advertisements and poker coverage events from its networks ‘pending further review’ in response to indictments against several online gambling websites, many of whom sponsor major poker events.

Although ESPN is apparently not involved in the investigation in any way, they have decided to distance themselves from the accused which includes sites such as Pokerstars.com, Fulltiltpoker.com, Absolutepoker.com, Ultimatebet.com and UB.com, all of which have been sized by the U.S. Government.

In total, 76 bank accounts have been frozen, preventing players from accessing any money they may have invested in the sites.
