I haven't made a withdraw on ACR in quite awhile, but when I did I never had any issues. One thing that is bothering me, aside from the traffic is WAY down from a year or so ago, is that there are hundreds of accounts created just in 2014; All MALES, ALL from COSTA RICA & most created accounts in FEB & MAR. Many where created the same days or on consecutive days.
I've been on the site for almost 2 years & until these last 2 months I had seen less than 5 players from COSTA RICA, now they are infesting the Free Rolls and Micro low stakes tables. Many of those tables will have 1-3 of these "Players" at any given time. Very strange things.
I know its not the Poker Pro's who have been fleeing the U.S's tyrants' @ DOJ in mass. Doubt they would bother playing a $10 Free Roll or a $25 GTD 0.50 cents Buy-In OnDemand tourney. So watch out for these people.
Now on BlackChip, ACR's sister site I have some bankroll thanks to CardsChat, FreeRolls & the parlaying of those winnings. When looking at my account history it show my REAL $ balance, Date of Real Money account:NONE (I've never deposited, but took all steps to verify my account) Then underneath that even though it shows my actual Real $$$ account balance it says I have NO REAL MONEY !
I'm becoming more leery of ALL the US "accepted" sites by the day and seriously considering a move to maybe Canada
. Any suggestions on a decent freedom loving democracy where an American online poker player can just play without all the worry & hassle?
Not to be picking on Costa Ricans. I just find it extremely odd that SO MANY people from such a tiny place, out of all the places in the world, decide to start joining a particular OLP site basically within a month & a half.
I'm thinking BOTS because they rarely make it ITM or a Final Table.
If 300 guys from the state I live in joined a site in that manner, I'm sure people would think something was up. So what is up Costa Rica?
