What is to become of Online Poker?

Since black friday on April 15th of this year, the online poker world has continued to remain in murky ground. Full Tilt has not yet returned players' money to them and as a result, Phil Ivey, one of their signature players has sued them and is boycotting the WSOP.

Now we have several state's exploring bills to legalize online poker in their. No fewer than 5 states are exploring the issue, including California and Washington. They would allow online poker just for players in their state. However, for the near term this will only help the residents of this small number of states.

I thought it would be a good time to summarize some of the sources of news on these topics for readers:

Crackdown seems to be having a positive affect on WSOP traffic.

Its interesting to look back at posts like this, and see how much people were unsure about the future of the on line poker. How do you compare it now to back then?
