Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I live in WA and am on tight bank Roll management because i can no longer deposit. This is working out ok though. My Q is what do I tell my accountant when they ask where this extra money came from? Can i say it is from a legal poker site? And when they say “but poker is illegal in WA” what is my reponse to be?

I am not a tax lawyer/accountant.

Don't take tax advice from people who aren't tax lawyer's/accountants.

With that said, what I personally did (I also don't live in WA) is claimed the income as I would any other sweepstakes winnings. That is after all what any money I get from Global is, sweepstakes winnings.

Keep in mind though,

I am not a tax lawyer/accountant.

Don't take tax advice from people who aren't tax lawyer's/accountants.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Every now and then I cannot see a card I am holding or a card in the board and
I have no information of what is it. I get forced to play those hands either knowing only one of my holdings or not knowing all the community cards

I hadnt experienced this bug until earlier today and I have been playing on Global for almost a year now.

I mainly play cash games nlth

Does anyone came across this bug or this is just me?

We are aware of issues where one or more of hole cards/board cards are not displayed to the player. The cards are still in play but are not visible to the individual. For those affected, please create a support ticket via goo.gl/hqQEwv if you still haven’t. Kindly include screenshots & other info like OS, browser & name of the table. Thank you for your cooperation.

Personally I wouldn't think so, but I would check out these pages for that answer:

https://globalpoker.com/page/terms-of-use
https://globalpoker.com/page/sweeps-rules
https://globalpoker.com/page/card-room-rules
https://globalpoker.com/page/faq

And if that doesn't answer the question, then go to the following:

https://globalpoker.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

BTW, not saying this is the best way to handle these questions, but it is the way Global handles it.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Withdrawals: ive been uploading and re-uploading my docs and still waiting to cash out my first sweeps winnings. They're quick to take $ but give u the run around when u make a withdrawal. if this doesn't work i think ill just stick to playing live.

@ The Nuts 505
I can't speak to your exact situation but I've w/d multiple times and I usually get the money in 4-5 days in my bank account. Make sure you are following their instructions and ask them for clarification on things you aren't sure about.

Can someone clear something up for me about the Big Ante tournies Global has run lately?

I just played in the Xmas 24 Big Ante, and I thought Antes increase very quickly while blinds stay very low, or at least thats how I thought it was in the first Big Ante tournie I played a few days ago. But tonights tournie had blinds increasing quickly, while antes stayed small. have I lost my mind or something?

*

Im an idiot. I got the Big Ante tournie confused for the Ante Up tournie. Please disregard.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

That’s good advice, cheers. Just wish the word “Poker” was not in then website name. You dont happen to know the amount at which we habe to declare? I am just thinking of limiting the amount withdrawn each year to avoid the conversation altogether.

I have done it successfully once but check with your bank about foreign transaction fees first.

Prepaid ones? Green Dot makes international payments a pain in the ass, NetSpend had been no problem though. I know three people that used theirs.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I play using just the alert sounds but they seem to not be working today, is there a fix for this? weirdly, gameplay sounds work fine when i turn them on but alert doesn't... is the audio file corrupted or blocked or is it something else?
