Hmmm..
It's no secret that in spy movies as soon as the hero finds out that the villain uber-babe is setting to put poison in his drink, quickly enters Pokerstars & FTP and cashes out....
But these scenes are always left out of the film because of some damned Gambling Commission censorship... AAAAAAAWWWW!
Shock

Here'S how it works- When You die Your wife cancels Your credit card.
One month later she'll get a bill because Your monthly online porn rental bill
was rejected due to the credit card being canceled.

It is then that Your wife starts to get interrested in what You have been doing
all day long at the computer, and so she will find out about your poker accounts and can then withdraw the money.. Big Smile

It goes as always, the rich capitalist gets richer and if your next of kins sue the capitalist then the lawyers (thus another capitalists) get richer. Life is hard and then you die. Then you float in whatever state and suddenly see a man and woman having sex and realize it's another round of misery and suffering ahead of you.. unless you re-incarnate in some lower realm as an animal (how about a dungworm, no money worries!), a hungry ghost or a spirit in hell (be ready for absurd buy-ins and rigged games in local tournaments..) Evil Evil Evil Evil Evil Evil

its a very interesting question... Question an honest or serious answer should indeed be of the essence... Disagree


I did give an honest and serious answer and you all ignored it in favour of mystery and intrigue.

The truth is it is NOT an interesting question or even a good one. It'd just be standard policy, as with EVERYWHERE else that holds peoples money. When somebody dies the executor of the estate/will (generally spouse, family, etc) gain control of the estate and are able to cease any financial assests.

All legitimate poker rooms would have a standard policy in place. I've worked in finance before, it's pretty straight forward. You have the deceased's executor send in a death certificate or something of that nature and you either transfer the relevant account into that name or you release any holdings to them.

I assure you all this wouldn't be some mysterious thing, especially in a room the size of poker stars, this obviously happens quite a lot. So long as the family members are aware there is a poker account, they would be able to gain control of the funds.

In the case the family isn't aware, if it was a large enough account the poker room would probably try and chase it up. Otherwise, eventually as somebody else as mentioned, in-activity policy would kick in and they would do whatever with the money as per that clause (I think PKR actually has a charity for ceased funds).

ChatOperator1: Simona: Now check with the responsible department which is the policy in similar cases.
xxxxx: ty
ChatOperator1: Simona: So politics is 'the following
ChatOperator1: Simona: In such cases player's relatives should send us the death certificate of the owner of the account and their identitiesz personal documents.
ChatOperator1: Simona: After receiving the necessary documents we will credit the money to relatives.

In an attempt to avoid such a situation under any circumstances and once and for all
(and of course the situation described in my earlier post) I have just decided
not to die...

This will also ensure that i win "in the LONG run" !!!!

( Might also allow me to ask for a rake free account on partypoker after I have generated at least 10 Party Point a Year... for 1000 consecutive years.... )

Great question! Quite sure that this has already happened a lot of times and I think that the pokerroom will keep the money, unless that a familymember logs in and cashout.

Now, this is funny, but I dont think this is true story. CDPoker doesnt exist anymore, they merged with William Hill poker, so I doubt that CDPoker live chat still exist. Confused

As morbid as it is, I was wondering the same thing. In the end, you should let the executor of your will know how to withdraw the money from your account. Why tell the poker site? I don't trust these sites very much, even the big ones.

CDPoker has not yet organized the migration to William Hill of italian players (they have to be authorized from italian laws in short words) so I still have my CDPoker account live ..... this story is true and happened yesterday immediately first than posted


anyway have a look at the attached picture: see the date/timeof cdpoker window and to ensure it is not a photoshop trick I took the screenshot of cdpoker beside your post Smile


I don't lie in general and above all no need to lie about such easy matters Blink

Ok, magatt966, I did not know that CDPoker is still active room. I had account at CDP and is closed months ago, so I taught CDP is merged with WHP completely. Confused

Anyway, I was wrong about CDP, obviously they are still alive, sorry m8. Blink

I'm not worried about my money if I die. My wife knows my passwords so ... if he wants to waste it, go for it!

yeah , but is she allowed to withdraw it ?

Why not? How does the poker room knows that somebody died? If the funds are withdrawn from within the pokerroom client soft to a credit card or Moneybookers, how do they know that it is not an account owner?

but if he did not did his first withdrawal b4 he died , she must send the id ... and i don't think she will still have them ..
