$75 for a check? Thats pretty shady. When I withdraw $1000 from PS I not only get the check for free but the FEDEX next day is also free. Just another small thing showing us that Stars wants our business and these nickle and dime sites do not.

Re: POKERHOST new promo

Is anyone interested in forming a 2+2 team to compete in the WSOP league? The overlay seems ridiculously good, especially since you get a 50% discount on tournament registrations if you register in advance for all the tournaments. The details of the promotion are at: http://www.pokerhost.com/poker-bonus/wsop-league-pass

I am sorry to say that I am a donk in tournaments, nevertheless I believe that the overlay is so good that even I am +EV in this series.

Unfortunately fees are a bit high due to the solutions we have, as financial facilities are very limited due to US restrictions it is hard for us to send out funds. Depending on the amount we recommend other options less expensive, please if you want to know the other options we have contact our live support

This is something we are working out at the present, in deed there is a problem with there's a migration where the funds in these accounts come and go, as you guys know the funds of the players are in a escrow account so they are not used to pay operational costs so the money is secure at all times. We are getting funds sent every 2 days or so to comply with all payments, if you have any specific questions about yours please contact me asap, and I'll update you about your account.

I will not refer in detail to this case anymore, as a resolution has already been established. All I will comment is the rules are in place for a reason, at the end of the day you are caught doing something wrong, you will be given the details of the activity along with its resolution. Both PokerHost and Microgaming security teams are very experienced in this area and our response time in these activities is very fast.

For all the other players out there, we are now in a new network, and we will continue to give the service, benefits and great promotions we've always had. For the regular players that know how our business has been you can continue to rely on us. I hope you contact me or anyone on our team with inquiries you might have. See you at the tables.

It looks like they still exist. Is the pokerhost deal better than a standard 35% rakeback Carbon Poker deal?

Re: PokerHost (merge) keep crashing

well the tables goes white and if i click the X theres a screen coming out offering me 3 choice:

1- close the sofware
2-wait for it to respond
3 not sure about the third

I just talked to the support and they told me to uninstall the software.

Poker Host?

There is almost no information about this merge skin on 2+2, and they only info I can find is about poker host being terrible and taking peoples money. This was mostly when they were a part of the cake network, so I am not sure if that changes anything. I wanted to know if any of you guys played there now, and how trustworthy it is?

Easier to deposit since they recode your deposits as a purchase from an online retailer of mobile phones . However, this doesn't seem legal or ethical.

Re: PokerHost

I'm considering opening an account at PokerHost. Does anyone have any experience post April 15 (Black Friday)? How difficult is it to deposit? Are people having success withdrawing? How's support? How do people feel their deal rates compared to other Merge skins?

Re: PokerHost

I got a flier promising 200% initial deposit bonus and a free 25$. I decided to sign up to take the 25$ and check out the tables before I deposited any money. The same exact day I received the flier I signed up, registered my account and emailed them the promotional code. I checked my account and didn't receive money for 2 days so I contacted their live rep ( they ignored my following emails ). He stated that the promotion expired ( including the 200% deposit bonus ) on may 5th... I received my flier on may 5th and absolutely nowhere did it state that the promotion expired.

The rep was also extremely rude & unhelpful. Glad I didn't deposit right away as I certainly would of got owned on the " bonus "

I'd stay away from pokerhost for sure.

The software is terrible/buggy and ugly and cannot be modded. They charge $40 for check withdraws. I'd stay away as well.

Just got the same flier and thought I'd check here first. Thanks for the warning.

Have any of you guys made a deposit on that site lately? I also second the support guy being a huge douchebag, doesn't know how to do his own job.
