I put in all the stuff about etymology and the Spanish translation. It takes a little while.

So to get this straight, after December 31st, American customers can STILL play on Bovada, it's just the Bodog brand that is pulling out of US??
My first impression was the Bodog brand changed over to the Bovada brand, probably for legal reasons, and was folding up the US tent altogether..

To fold would be an admission of guilt. Or at least an attempt to kill any investigation before questions start getting asked.

To do what they are doing is kinda like making a statement that they have no intention of folding, or being shut down.

My first impression was that they are doing all the right things to work as legally as US law allows, but have made this move to isolate the US portion of their business, just in case the D.O.J. decides to shut them down anyway, even temporarily.

I agree it's a good move by Bodog to split its assets to a division with no risk and a division with a great deal of risk. It makes perfect sense, actually. The DOJ shouldn't be able to shut down Bodog anymore, meaning that all of its non-US players can keep going. However, I don't think the assets in Bodog are protected just because it split. That is, the DoJ could go after the parent company's assets (but not shut down the bodog website).
