Right after he qualified the sent him a email and of course the ticket buy in for 5000 wishing him good luck in the final game. During this was the time with all the US law changes with online gambling. The day of the tourney I go next door to watch him play it and he tells me that they will not allow any US players to play in the finals due to new laws in US. I was like well atleast you got the 5k ticket to get your money with. Wrong!!! they never gave him his money he earned and they cutt off all ties with US play and closed out all US accounts. 5k lost and a chance at financial freedom what a common group canbet is. He has not played poker online since and I cant say I blame him after all of that mess
Wow. That really sucks!
If it were up to me, I would like to see poker sites
being regulated like banks and other financial institutions. Some people have more money at poker sites than in their bank account. The lack of ANY security is terrible for players and, ultimately, for poker sites as well as the case with your friend shows.
Can you imagine if management at your bank decided that you are "undesirable" and closed your account? Or because it is dormant, they reset the balance to zero?
