-FTP had no SNE program for less bot-like grinders
-maximum of 8 tables (16 by request) made the games much faster than Pokerstars, which is infested by 24tablers who constantly time out or use their full time bank for every single action
-FTP was the first site to solve the ratholing-shortstacker problem
-lot's of deep table and ante-table action
-no seperation of fast and normal tables, because the software was pretty fast at default

The games on Pokerstars are much less fun on FTP, the gaming environment is disgusting at the moment. As soon as a fish busts, everyone is instantly sitting out, even on low stakes, which is ridiculous.
FTP tables weren't any softer than at Pokerstars, but definitely more action packed, faster and more fun.



Q: Will FTP continue to deliver a completely different gameplay than Pokerstars or will both sites become very similar over time?
Plus 1 and hoping FTP will try as hard as possible to be distinct from PStars.

Am I the only US player who would want to start fresh and have a new username when everything gets legalized?
I don't want to be tied to an old account that existed when everything was under the table and skeezy.

I'm a U.S. (former) player but going to chime in that FTP NEEDS a 24-7 Customer Service phone line. Absolutely insane that this never existed.

Danish license please

Please reconsider applying for danish license. There are so many danish players who want to play at full tilt and Pokerstars already has a danish license.

Take a look at this thread on the leading danish poker forum:

http://www.pokernet.dk/forum/fulltil...sh-licens.html

So please reconsider.

Thanks.

What if someone had a ROW account before June 29 but has since moved back to usa. I know they are considered ROW but what If they don't have access to those particular bank accounts from ROW and the address for check mailing purposes. How will withdrawals work then?

re: Official FTP (Pre)Relaunch Thread (OP updated August 24, 2012)

A statement on countries that offer regulated poker that require a seperate license would be welcome. I understand that it is on the bottom list of your worries before getting the site back up again, but does FTP plan to reevaluate these decisions once the other major work has been done? Or is it not planned to discuss these things for now and will we most likely not see FTP back on these networks in the foreseeable future?

How will it happen for players from Belgium to have our money back?

(or France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Estonia...)

Welcome Shyam. Glad to see this and to have you here.

I and other mods are deleting the low/no content/off-topic so we can keep this thread focused. After a question is asked a couple times please refrain from quoting & +1'ing to avoid clutter. Lets wait for a response before repeating or pushing a topic.

Thanks,
Mike
