that's the most ridiculous reason I've ever heard (assuming there isn't something you're not telling us of course, I'm pretty hesitant to give people the benefit of the doubt online). But if you're serious and there was no mention of not being able to do this (on the forum or whatever) then what a joke.

They're a joke anyway. They give you tokens through the offer on here but take them back after a week if unused. One of the tokens is for a game that's only on ONCE within any given week, so if you forget, or can't be at your pc, the best token they give you is gone and tough s**t to you.
Terrible Customer care too. But then, it is ipoker.

This sounds really weird. I mean if it is how you said does not make any sense to me. Herad this kind of things is not good for a new poker site. I, for sure, never will make a deposit there, they could take my money if I close the chat

Posted by T3ddyKGB: sry ripstunov22 i dont belive you lol...or u maybe missunderstood something ? just cant believe the chat was the reason.
I gotta admit, I don't really believe him either. Or I think, if it's true, then we're not getting ALL the information. Like the part where they were warned not to close it or something. I don't know. Doesn't sound right/full picture to me.

To make this BS worse, only French may be spoken in the chat room....and I don't speak French.

We contacted Poker770 about this issue and they told us that you have entered a private tournament for a poker club in France, it's like a leauge that Poker770 organise for them.
You live in Canada and claim that you do not speak French, but some how you found the password to get inside the private tournament. You did not respect the main rules (was playing without the chat to speak to players). Poker770 support asked you to put back the chat, but apparently you didn't.
According to their terms & conditions, they are allowed NOT to pay you if you don't follow the rules - no surprises there.
Bottom line - you were not supposed to be in the tournament as you don't belong to the poker club in France.
I'm closing this thread and removing your ridiculous accusations that a poker site would become thieves for just $20.
