Sweet action

Always late to the party, I noticed that Drizz had a check from Full Tilt bounce. I followed the path to Pokerati where the talk was of a federal crackdown on monies being received from poker sites. From there I somehow ended up at TripJax site where he had emails from both Full Tilt and PokerStars telling him not to cash the checks they sent.

Good news is that Full Tilt and PokerStars are not to blame for the problem and they were proactive in addressing and correcting the issues. What struck me though was that Full Tilt gave Trip $100 for the problem he encountered. $100 for his $300 withdrawal that went bad.

That seem pretty damn generous. A 33% return just for a bad check. How can I get in on some of that sweet action? It has to better than the thumping I got at the PLO8 table Monday night. Nothing would go right.

Finally, you all are familiar with the roll below listing friends who are writing for various outlets. Show them some love and support. One to also include is F-Train. He is writing for one of these (I am not sure which exactly) but also have some comments on his own blog. Add him to the roster!

PokerStars gave me 10% on my $1,500 check...they also confirmed today that I can resubmit another check request that should be fine (and it can include the 10% bonus they gave me).

FT on the other hand has been mum on the subject...

Ditto on the mum. First email I sent about the check (I didn't get a "warning please-do-not-cash-check email") I got a reply in 6 hours.

Its been 72 hours now when I asked about requesting a second check, no answer. I need money for Vegas and can't defile myself properly without it :)
