Hello, I am German as well, but unfortunately I do not play on Full Tilt so I could not have gotten that mail. But I did not receive anything like that from any other pokersite as well. But if it is true it should definitely effect all pokersites.

yeah i received this message as well, though not coming from germany. guess it's legit then- unless nigerian scammers decided to scam germans and lithuanians in one go. not sure whether this law affects all sites or not, but even if it does probably all sites have some timeframe to implement this and will follow suit sooner or later.

It does affect all sites, but it's the sites discretion to implement it to the disadvantage of thw players or not. In the case of pokerstars, they have to pay 20% of player's rake in tax now, and decided that players will pay half of it (thus decreasing rewards by 10%)
