I'd say quite the opposite. That is unless there is a disproportionate number of advantage players to regular punters on the old-new market. That being said, I believe most advantage players have already found ways to enjoy gambling from US even with the laws in place, so I reckon we'll see a flood of regular, losing, gamblers in the market. That's good for the books -> even better for us smart players. The more the merrier.

Also, legal stuff I imagine has to be regulated, which might lead to a better overall regulation than than the Costa Rica type situation we have now.
