Yes. And Stars is telling me to email FTP support to find out why. So, I emailed them yesterday, and still haven't heard back.

Been away for months from 2+2 and so happy FTP is up and running with a proper company now. How good does it feel to have our money back

However still see some complaining about stuff, those people never change. Only if they remembered that they could very well have lost their money if PS had not stepped in.

Let the games commence in FTP

If you refer a friend how long does it take till he gets the invitation e-mail?
Could he go ahead and open the account before he gets it?

Re: Official FTP Relaunch Thread (OP updated October 26, 2012)

Does anyone know if you can restrict certain game types on full tilt? I want to restrict myself from cash and limit myself to $20 SnGs/Tourneys like I can on stars.

Also does site transfer count as a deposit? I think I activated $100 of the welcome bonus when I transferred $100. I've now withdrawn $600 planning on depositing on full tilt but I may as well just deposit back to pokerstars (Since Maestro is a deposit option there and I don't have to try and find all my moneybookers info) and transfer the remaining $500 needed to activate bonus.

Yep, thanks. That is exactly where I check my current points - the Deal me in bonus tab.
I have currently made 78 FTPs for 2 days and have rolling average of about 12.
I guess it is calculated 78/7, although only 2 days have passed.

Yep - Full tilt is back. Haven't you thought why it's called FULL TILT?

And about these 25%. Full tilt somewhere wrote that they don't expect top tier to receive anything above 35% anyway.

The top tier normal effective rakeback would be around 30% (ftp have a value of a 4-5.7% rakeback depending on how you use them). If you are diamond edge and always play only during happy hour 2x - it is around 35%.

But this does not include the current bonuses on offer, which are 40% rb on top of the normal 30-35%. And who is to say there won't be bonuses offered in the future.

Also, it is easier to reach diamond level on FTP than to reach platinum status at Stars. Even though the rake is higher at FTP as a percentage of the pot, unless you are consistently reaching platinum or above, FTP is a better deal than Stars, imo.

Is there anobody who managed to use PokerOffice with the Relaunched FTP ?

I tried it .. but it displays only the pot odds for me, but not the player stats. It imports hand history files normally.

The traffic is coming from penguins who have figured out how to obscure their country of origin and who are colluding with each other. I realized this by thinking about it and it checks out.

I transferred from Tilt to Stars. Does this void bonus offers? I dont see any offers so I assume so...

This is a good summary, although i would think if you continously achieve Gold PS is better, due to the fact that maintaining Gold is less stressfull than diamond, but i guess that comes down to individual preferences as the rewards are similar... there is also something to be said about getting cash into your account instead of FPP if you are not SN

Why would they disguise their country of origin, you can play from antarctica, no?
