Well you see it's like--WAIT it does not make sense to me either!!!
I am not sure if you are trolling but anyway, what's the point to FTP opening if I can have my 40% of my BR, when I can sell it at 40% in the market. Nothing changes and ppl will not accept it ofc.

but they chatted a bit and she explained it may very well be a possibility that it come as a 'casino' version, until poker problems are solved and then reinstated

grinding my bk back as a bonus betting on black, is not appealing at all

So we just went from the survey supposing that since there was a RUMOR that ftp would coem back in a few weeks to now people saying that whoever is conducting these surveys are now stating that ftp IS coming back in a few weeks?

Please ppl get ur storys straight. Which is it?

no trolling but makes no sense that somebody will not be happy with 40% from full tilt but will be happy with 40% from someone else IF they can even get 40% from someone else.

there is no logic in that statement plain and simple !!

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

So FTP is going to be back in a few weeks is this true? This would be really sick if true. I want to be able to cash out my funds and watch the high stakes cash games.

Clearly someone just misunderstanding the phone call. Although I did not speak to anybody, I'm almost positive the person said "IF we came back in a few weeks, ..."

I think some people are worried that full tilt sold their info to some 3rd party. No person would steal money from its customers and allow deposits without collecting the money while the company is profitable and there is no need to do so.

Relax guys, we should trust that FTP would follow the rules

Are you still considering moving to Canada so you can play on the new FTP when it comes back?

Ok that's what I thought was true but the last few people who've posted said differently.

Ill assume their wrong and something just got lost in translation.

If the only other option is nothing then your logic is flawless! It also is good if the other option is 3 years and 15% on the dollar! Your speculative 10% penalty is not insulting considering the circumstance. What % penalty would you consider insulting?

sadly, at this point i'd absolutely take 80% with a smile

and i'd definitely take 30-50% straight off and get the rest in 12 payments over the next year or whatever that one option suggested.

and like most have said better a little than nothing.
so you are suggesting they be under-funded from the start and obviously have to sign up with a licensing authority that doesnt require the new FTP to have 100% of player funds segregated and available.

Sorry if that doesnt give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Yes, I was talking to a friend and I am considering moving to Canada to play on Poker Stars, Party Poker and FTP if they come back. It is a big step but I am strongly considering it now. If I can get a backing deal set up I might move to Canada.

sorry that came out wrong--what i meant was the $300 mil segragated but they only might have to pay out $200 Mil to start leaving $100 mil segragated but in a "slush" fund so to speak. Thus that money is "in play" and they can start makign money fromit right away, rather than pay out the whole $300 Mil and hope that people will start depositing right away.

This would be a great way to start a new business.

How can we install trust in the new FTP?

I know!......... lets try and screw loyal FTP customers out of a large percentage of THEIR money to start with.
