re: Poker & money from sites that dont allow US players anymore
I didn't even realize I could open the FTP client. After reading this thread, I tried, and sure enough - it opened. Like Mortis, my balance shows as $0.00, but my Full Tilt Points are there. I recall that before they shut the site down entirely, they converted by tournament tickets to cash. I took a screen shot of my balance some time after Black Friday so I would have some evidence of my balance.
The other thing I noticed is there is a logo at the bottom of the cashier page saying "Your funds are safe with Rational Group".
I hope so.
Just opened a game (that I couldn't play) and saw a player that I had notes on - notes were still there.
I'm waxing nostalgic....
