Kahn is not some clueless online poker newbie. He has been playing poker across multiple sites and networks for over a decade, and by his own admission, has been cheated before by shady poker sites.
He knew all the signs. He knew where Full Flush was headed.
He continued promoting them on his affiliate site, for MANY MANY MONTHS after it was clear they were not paying people.
Kahn also had glowing, positive reviews for Full Flush during the many months of non-payment. He was begged to modify his reviews in order to reflect what was truly going on there, and refused.
Kahn was happy to lead new lambs to the slaughter. If he didn't secretly own a percentage of Full Flush, he was definitely intentionally leading new victims to deposit there for his own selfish reasons.
Kahn's offer to buy Full Flush money at 30 cents on the dollar was also quite suspect. Anyone who knows Kahn will tell you that he's a hustler and will never knowingly take the short end of the stick. He didn't buy these funds on faith in the company. He likely bought them either to profit (maybe he was paid more than 30c on the dollar) or as a go-between for Full Flush in order to cash out people for less (maybe they were reimbursing him, thus allowing themselves plausible deniability regarding cashing out people for less).
Kahn is not doing you any favors by offering you rake races or any other promotions on his site. He's basically making you rake more in order to get your money back, which helps HIM, and in fact may allow him to get paid extra (due to the higher amount of gross rake) in order to cover what he's giving you back.
Even if you want to say Kahn is somehow reimbursing you, he's only doing it in order to keep a good customer who has earned him big bucks over the years.
Do you think Kahn is reimbursing anyone who deposited using his link, didn't rake much, and lost their money due to Full Flush being a scam?
There is no way Kahn can be anything other than a scumbag for keeping that Full Flush link up (and its associated glowing review) after the site wasn't paying people.
He can't plead ignorance.
He can't plead that he had faith in them (he's been around far too long to know what was up).
He can't explain why he had a review up which completely covered up Full Flush's insolvency and portrayed them as safe.
Kahn is a scumbag.
Fortunately he's in the US, and let's just say he's very accessible.
All I can say is that he did do me a favor by setting up the rake race which gives me the opportunity to recover FFP funds.
I was a client of Khan's playing on a different site. He offered a rake race to me with no further stipulations to recover my FFP balance. I had been playing on this other site since Aug of 2015 anyway as I had concerns about FFP and had a large balance.
I understand that as an affiliate Khan gets a % of my rake from the site. This had been happening since Aug 15 anyway. Since Nov 16' he has been paying me $x/mo for hitting different rake numbers. I have not changed sites or signed up for anything new. I have just continued to play on the same site that I have played for the last year and a half but now with rakeback
. Can you see how this is purely a benefit for me and how it can be seen as a good faith effort by Khan? If he didn't offer this to me I would have been playing anyway and he would be collecting 100% of his affiliate cut instead of 100%-x.
If this is the same sort of deal as I have(I DK
; do your own research), then yeah the affiliates will probably make money from you, but you will make money from them too. I don't see how this isn't win-win. If you still are gonna play online poker, why not recover your FFP money via rakeback?
