Given what has happened at full tilt and might happen if things go worse, How likely is it to happen to any other site, I am lucky myself in as much as i had a very small stake at full tilt but at will hill i keep a fair sum in there, should we all take our money out regularly and put it back when we want to play.

I never thought this was possible but it has given me (us all i guess) a wake up call of what might happen

I guess similar things can happen to all sites still working in the US market. They all have to operate in a grey area to receive deposits from US players. But i doubt a single european country can pull such a stunt. So the only danger for the bigger european sites is Brussels.

Yep, and I get the feeling there is big money for those causing all the problems, so as soon as they spit FT out they will move to the next easy bag of swag........The end is nigh

The only person to answer the question i asked so thank you and thumbs up to you shokaku so ipoker should be ok but it is a worry when you think you can play for 3 or 4 months to build up a bank roll to play with then to lose it through no fault of our own. I would be gutted if that was to happen. I am not playing 6 or 7 hours a day for fun (although it is fun) but I for one really do need to make this work and I am guessing a lot of you guys are the same.

well your ok then nothing to worry about is there,????
but your worryed thou because your scared to build up a roll just in case this happens to the site your playing on, me too , theres no trust, this will no help bankroll mangament players,
cause you will be withdrawing your money when its reachers a certen point and you wont be able to move up stakes,because of the risk factor of what could happen to your roll,
i think what happend now is players will be taking there money out regularly and put it back when we want to play like what you said in your first post,

oh by the way do i get a thumbs up now cause i answerd your question Big Smile

Ok why not but more to the point you point is very valid and it says exactly what I thought and whether it can happen to other sites but I am hoping the risk is small.

well with all this going on all the smaller sites could get more customers,
me myself have just started back at william hill only got a small bankroll but its at back of my mind,
what can happen, building a roll up, it has put a downer on my game at the moment
do i reach a point in my roll to cashout each time or just carry on trying to move up to a higher stake
if you know what i mean Smile

In my opinion, as far as money management is involved, i would withdraw most of my bankroll protect it from this kind of events. I guess ppl keep forgetting that a poker site is not a bank and therefore you shouldn't let them hold your money like one. keep a record of your profit/losses somewhere else and use the money for the week from your moneybookers or whatever account. of course if we are talking about 20 bucks or so its not worth the trouble

Well dozn, i recon you would be better reaching that point, say $100 or $150 and cash obviously not all your roll, but just leave in what you feel comfortable enough with that you can re build your roll again say $20 $30, this is what i do also, i give myself a time limit say 7 days to try and break $100, sometimes i do sometimes i dont but after this time limit i always cash out if im up on my base rate even if its only $10-$15, i find this keeps me at a level im comfortable with and i dont go above my station and go on tables that are too high for my bankroll, see you get 3 positives out of this, teatches bnkroll man, you hopefully make a good steady profit lol--- and if things do go pete tong u aint guna loose a months wages, GL mate Smile Big Smile Cool

My belief is that you never can be 100% sure with what will happen with an online poker site.
They can shut down for numerous reasons that dont involve the ones with the current situation like FT
and PS.
And it wont be the first time or the last that for reasons you will not know a site will close down
keeping all the money in too Smile

This has happened for a specific reason with FTP, its not some kind of virus that will afect other online poker rooms. They were already having problems, politic and financial (tax) problems, and the reason why is now closed is due to that. Of course that other rooms can pass through the same problems and suffer the same way, but its not going to happen now like dominos falling down.

No it will not go down like dominoes and it might not go down at all but you cant really be sure for nothing.
And you can see thats definitely something in the air.
With Australia for example (other than US) the recent events in Poland willing to ban it as a country
not to mention of course that European Parliament has already passed a law to ban online gambling
There are already laws but they havent put them in effect.

If you are reffering to pokerstars the fact that they issued a statement might sound like a good news on the first hand but if you look at the decision of the alderney gambling comission to ban full tilt poker you'll find out that the reason was pretty much similar to what is currently happening to pokerstars.

I mean ftp was banned because they are investigated by fbi for money laundry , and if you clearly remember pokerstars is under the same investigation along ftp and cereus network, so probably this could happen to pokerstars pretty soon, so this could e bad things for all pokerstrs players.

I think now 'll move to poker, i heard they have osme attractive 200% first deposit offers, so thats where i'll make my next poker account now that ftp is dead....
Sad
