The top poker sites are in no way rigged. The same might not be true for BJ sites or other games where your playing the computer, but the top poker sites had no interest in rigging the hands.
They where much more focused on laundering their money and avoiding taxes. Those top three sites where doing billions of dollars in revenue, and where well trusted and well regarded from a PLAYING standpoint as the worlds top players and biggest spenders all used them.
I would STRONGLY agree though that keeping any money on these sites (most top pros or high limit players cash out daily) is beyond stupid, as something like this was unavoidable.
You want to know helped push this move and is overjoyed with it finally happening? ZYNGA. Now everyone will flock to their poker game to get their fix. Well played.
