Yeah, their rules suck compared to Bovada
, but Bovada is no longer. Bitcoin is much easier and more profitable to do (you can commonly make a profit on your withdrawl). They are encouraging this method because, and I guess you guys just don't understand what the US poker climate is at all, but it's INCREDIBLY difficult to maintain a payment processor to pay out US poker customers. That's one of the main reasons Bovada decided to stop. It was extremely costly to maintain, and in some cases where their processor got shut down, they had to eat millions of dollars in losses.
So my parting words to you are, GOOD LUCK on the other US sites. You'll be back once you realize the games are 100x better on Ignition.
