Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

Hey guys, I think I have the # to the Attorney General around here somewhere (could you please PM it to me if you have it) I'll call her sometime in the next few biz days and ask her some questions if you all want. What are the most up to date questions we should be asking?

Unfortunately I've given up hope of seeing any of my $20K, so ask her who she thinks should be the next England Manager?
Seriously though good luck and thanks for stepping forward. I'm not fully up to speed on this so I doubt I could come up with the most incisive questions.

Only difference is we can play on pokerstars while we wait for confirmation about our loss funds.

So we are in the same position as US players? Its fine by me, but I was really wondering if the fact that "we were allowed to play" would "guarantee" us a percentage back. I only had about 6-7k but it was my first bankroll, and I would like to know if Canadians have a better chance at a return, although I pretty much prepared myself on a zero % return. I just dont have the motivation right now to build my BR back up again, lol.

Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

What would the DOJ do if Cereus just stops operating and closes down? Would they keep all the frozen money as fines or would they try to pay back players?

For FTP the extension means extra time to get the deal worked out. For Cereus it probably just means more time for the Cereus-owners to hide assets and get better protection from a bunch of lawyers.

I mean they have been paying Black Rock for over eight months now and so far we have seen nothing come out of that black hole.

Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

i have spoke with Russ Hamilton in the last 2 days...its been mind boggling texting back and forth to a guy who TOTALLY fkkkk'd up my career...its feels like i'm talking to my murderer...not to sure if u understand how that could feeeeel....but it was full of mixed emotions and was quite the adrenaline
-russh-

this is a very delicate matter for me and others affected by the scandal, please be patient- i need to make sure i don't bite more than i can chew.

im not looking for attention or sympathy etc..... i have dedicated my life to this beautiful game... called poker, and i have nothing but respect for the game and the poker community.

i didnt expect to hear from Russ, and it has thrown me for a little loooop- i was supposed to meet face to face with him the other night, but he backed out the 11th hour--- sick riv.

on another note-- they couldn't offer me 5 million dollars tomorrow to keep my mouth shut...i will NEVER sell out to myself or the Poker community- the guys involved need to be held accountable.... no more free passes- Now lets start listening to the people that actually have investigated this stuff !

i also had a 45min convo with Phil Hellmuth the other night-- i believe he owes and has some explaining to do to the Poker Community-- lets ask him for some clarity
