It’s good to see they are investing in clarifying all about how is it going to be from now on and when the software relaunches its activity. The doubts will be the less possible and everyone will be trusting in the service they will be using each time they enter at FT to play again. At least this is how i feel, after reading all this. But i don’t have much money to receive from there, can’t figure out how are those feeling.

I will definitely apply for the remission through the DOJ, but it still sounds like there not going to allow U.S. players to play real money poker any longer.
I really hope this isn't the case, but if it is I'l start playing more live games. They opened a Casino about 45 minutes down the road and it seems to have a lot of potential.
It would be nice to get my money back from FT, but no worries. I'll still live the life I'm living without that money. getting used to not being allowed to live free in the U.S. or I should say spend my money on what I want without the government getting their cut. FOOK"EM

They claimed they would open for cash today (6th Nov), yet ALL COUNTRIES are well into the 6th, especially Australia, where I live. Has been the 6th for 21hrs.
Even though they are opened for Play Money and have been for about a week, they are still not open for ca$h like they said they would be. This is very, very bad for business!!!!
They have even failed to respond to an email I sent to them in regards to this. I stated that not all Countries are the same and operate different time-zones, etc... and that Australia is one of the 1st Countries in the World who experience a new day before everyone else (apart from New Zealand, Fiji and a few Islands east of there ) and that I would've liked to play in the Country-Specific Freeroll tournament that is usually on tonight (my time). I was hoping this would be available before start, but I am now forced to wait longer to play in this now, considering Australia is one of the 1st to experience a new day, yet I am made to wait longer than other Countries to play in their Country-Specific respective tournaments!
Even the home-page states 1 day to launch STILL!!!! LOL
If FT are going to treat their players like this, I am not sure I want to return. I mean, what other lies are they likely to impart to their (once loyal) customers? I have already stated that this is bad for business, by not opening for ca$h as promised players! I believe they operate on ET, but I guess they could've stated a time. At least this would lessen the anxiousness and anguish caused.
I wonder what excuse they are going to give!??
I gave Party my business tonight instead. I wonder if I will have to play at Party again tomorrow night???? LOL I would've really liked to play at FT tonight!
