It appears the US facing sites took a bit of a pounding this week. Messages boards like 2+2 have been abuzz with people frantic to get their funds out. Unlike the initial passage of the UIGEA when people raced to get money onto the sites, the problems sites are having getting people’s funds back to them is causing a bit of a mini-panic.

Stars’ $1 million guarantee tournament had about 900+ less players than the week before but still managed to make the guarantee. Full Tilt and Bodog weren’t so lucky and had to add a little moola to their guaranteed prize pools.

The US facing sites seem to be on the same growth patterns that they have been in the past so there’s not much change there.
