re: Poker & Withdrawal to my back account from Full Tilt.
Wire transfers, contrary to what one might think, take some time. Usually between 3 and 7 days depending on the banks involved and where they are located.
One thing you can be pretty sure of, though, is that the major cardrooms including FullTilt, UltimateBet, PokerStars
, etc. are not going to screw you out of your money during a transfer. All the big players are extremely good re: payouts.
I'm certainly looking forward to the day when the funding provision is taken out of the Port Security act so poker rooms can use standard ACH direct deposits and withdrawals from checking.
FWIW, speedwise, PokerStars seems to have the fastest payouts of the cardrooms I play at...
