You know you've made it in the poker world when the amount of money you want to send someone exceeds the maximum amount normally allowed by a site.
After purchasing a piece of Jason Mercier, Marvin tried to send an undisclosed amount through the site's platform.
Unfortunately the amount was more than is normally allowed, so Marvin Rettenmaier decided to email PokerStars' security team to see if he could persuade them to allow the transfer.
Considering that the transaction involved a PokerStars pro and one of the world's top players, we're pretty sure the issue was resolved and Jason will now be able to afford to buy into the PCA

really? so u r saying that jacon mercier cannot afford to buy-in into pca on his own?
so what about if i am a billionaire who wants to buy a piece of jayde nicole or sara underwood (will not go into detail which pieces i'm interested Big Smile ) i cannot transfer the money, because i have a sh1tload of it- does that mean i've made it in the poker world...

I do not think that Jason did not afford to pay the entire entry fee but it's the case that is pretty common in the world of high stakes world:

On large buy ins the players usually get stacked so this way if they lose they don't lose the full buy in themselves Blink

What a wonderful problem to have to deal with mates. I would love to need to take this type of action on behalf of a fellow player. I would really love to be in a position to do so. Smile
You all know what im talking about eh mates.

Be cool and good luck too us all.

Wow, those should be big values we’re talking about. But they could thought about doing those transfers outside the site, or in more than one part. I don’t know what’s the value, nor the limit defined by PS to realize in how many parts it would have to be separated, but I guess it would be enough one or two transfers using an e-wallett, which allows max of $10k. I would like to have a problem like that, it would only be sad if the pro trying to transfer the money to me would say “oh well, not possible, maybe next time, bye!”.

Mercier is a well know poker professional and couldnt get the buy in for himself?
Did he go broke or the other guy was owing him money. And how much money he wanted
to transfer and he couldnt. I thought there was no limit at all in transfers between players

I would have like to have been able to read the article if one exists just to see what this transaction intailed. For one, I wonder what the maximum transferrable amount is at PS and two, I wonder what the deal actually is. I mean it's possible they're splitting the buyin due to Rettenmaier can't make the tournament and this way if Mercier places they split, but who knows for sure other then themselves.
