Timmy, Say bye-bye to your UB bank account now that they declared bankruptcy! Never entrust your money with the likes of Phil Hellmuth and his ilk. Why don't you just play cash games to secure your buy in to the WSOP? You have a few weeks to pick up $10K to 20K, that shouldn't be too much of a problem for a player of your caliber and skills. There's no need to go begging here, dude.

Looks like it's going to be a long, long time before Americans are able to play poker online again. I'm guessing at least 2 to 4 years. Learn to "deal" with it, and maybe get a real job in the meantime.

Guess what guys, PS and FTP have less than 5% of your funds "available" for withdraw at any given time. (just like your everyday bank checking account). Most of the poker site funds are stashed away in foreign (Swiss, Cayman Islands, Singapore, etc) accounts. When push comes to shove, it could be a Bernie Madoff situation, and you may NEVER see any of your money again, or in best case scenario it will take at least 12-18 months while they continue to earn vast sums on investments using your money! Deal with it! For all the cheaters, colluders and other scum bag "professional" online players, I couldn't be happier.

I guess he's saying you should either call, fold, or raise in this situation.

Keepitreal: Obviously you are jealous of this sucessful online (brikdog24) "pro". Since 2006, this clown has amassed $9,080 in profit on FullTilt and $51,721 on PokerStars (as of 3/5/2011). That's like almost $10,000 a year, dude! Do you think you can earn that kind of money working as a Ronald McDonald Clown or The Burger King manager? www.officialpokerrankings.com What do you do for a living?

How much did Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke know, and when? Could be only a matter of time before the whole online poker business comes tumbling down. Collusion, cheating, account swapping, money laundering, etc. are all rampant and increasing daily.
On April 5, 2010, the Financial Times reported that a federal grand jury in Manhattan is investigating Full Tilt Poker and individuals associated with the company, including Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson, for violations of gambling and money-laundering laws. Although neither the Manhattan United States Attorney nor officials with the United States Department of Justice would comment on the matter, it was reported that such an investigation “would fit the federal law enforcement strategy by trying to make an example out of prominent targets”. The Department of Justice maintains that online poker violates the Interstate Wire Act of 1961 (Federal Wire Act).

If you're "ready to be a part of growing the Cake Poker site", why are you continuing to support and play on PokerStars and FullTilt? No one is twisting your arm to learn how to play multi-entry tournies on FT. I enjoy them very much and find the added value of much bigger payoffs to be well worth the risk.
