I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that you were bamboozled.

His name is Nick Rainey, correct?

http://wsopdb.com/?q=Nick+Rainey

combined with this looks a little concerning: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/17...st-go-1066997/

Yeah saw the "moving to Canada sale" yesterday in the MP, figured he wanted to grind online again like most people moving to Canada.

Hopefully Nick will come in here and explain the situation, because I don't see him either on the WSOP pdfs of ME entrants

There was a lot of controversy about Mi_Turtle like a year ago or something. I don't remember all the details but I think he was doing some sketchy/unethical stuff. Something like staking people and promising to donate winnings to charity, but then not donating. And running a coaching house/boot camp type thing and charging people a lot of money but the customers weren't satisfied and he didn't really care and just took their money and burned bridges.

Like I said I don't remember any details really, but unfortunately I think there is a decent chance you got scammed here.

Obv Nick can come in here soon and clear everything up. I just thought you should know that info in case he goes silent on here for a while and you are left wondering.

Also, I received a PM from him either the 7th or 8th of July saying that 10% more was available, even though he never posted anything itt about reserves being open.

Hopefully he can clear it up.

re: MI_turtle WSOP Main Event 1.25 Mark-up - ITT Nick Rainey scams people for thousands of $.

i know the sites that show what events people play can be pretty inaccurate,
but him selling his stuff does not look good.

hopefully its just a big misunderstanding

Were they just reserves or did Nick meet up with them in Vegas to collect?

Can Jordan and Charder comment on this?

I'm pretty sure GoldenBears and Nick Rainey are acquaintances at the very least (reference: http://twitter.com/#!/rainman_usc), so if anyone has Galen's contact information they might be able to better track down Nick.

Hope this helps, and GL to all investors.

If you are not going to play why would you not let people know before hand or the same day, unless you are going to take their money and run with your new stake in Canada.

I gave Nick cash at the Rio. I told him to come to my table (after talking to him on 2+2) and he sent some other guy to pick up the money which I wasn't comfortable with so the other guy went and got Nick.

Charder gave his money to looshle who gave it to Nick.

Hope those who invested get reimbursed this time around. He should have been in this thread updating his status and explaining himself long before starting up another post trying to sell belongings.

FWIW Rainey escrowed for one of my props in the past and there was no issue. Was easily more than 10k.

Sorry I am working on it, everyone has been contacted who bought shares itt and will be reimbursed today/tomorrow by the latest. I had an emergency minutes before sitting down to play Sunday and had to leave Vegas immediately.
