Mystery Player Leaves Graph Showing His 5 Years of Winning – ‘cumicon” has left the game of online poker after 5 years and after winning an amazing $7.4 million.  His results were left at the TwoPlusTwo.com forum per a graph detailing all his play (and winnings) since January 1 of 2013.

“I am quitting poker and want to share my graph now that I don’t need to worry about killing any potential action I might get. I always enjoyed seeing inspiring graphs posted on 2p2, so I’m happy to contribute mine.” He added: “I did this without ever really working on my game away from the tables, so it’s still possible to be a lazy poker player and make money in today’s games.” Now it remains to be seen if the mystery player known as ‘cumicon” will eventually be outed. Two Senators Have Revived Online Poker Prohibition Act -

Sens. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have revived efforts to ban online poker following the legalization in Pennsylvania last month.  That state became the fourth to legalize Web poker after Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey, the later of which has witnessed tremendous success with the industry.

The two Senators sent a letter to the Department of Justice. 

From OnlinePokerReport.com:

One of the most frustrating elements of the letter is its mischaracterization of a n FBI letter from 2013.

The Graham-Feinstein letter says:

“the FBI has concluded that ‘online casinos are vulnerable to a wide array of criminal schemes,’ including money laundering and ventures by transnational organized crime groups.”

What the FBI actually said was, illegal, offshore online gambling could be used for criminal activity.

As OPR has written in the past:

    “The FBI letter was not a warning; it was a response to a Congressional request about the potential dangers of money laundering via online gambling. The FBI also concluded these threats were largely preventable and detectable.”

In fact, later in the letter, the FBI explicitly states that, “Many of these methods could be detected and thwarted by a prudent online casino.”

In other words, the FBI letter was making the case for regulation.

And that brings us to the next claim in the Graham-Feinstein letter.
