Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

I've had an account since 2004 and want to recieve Rakeback. I've read alot of different views on here. some saying "no way" and others saying "they were accepted". I just emailed support and they advised they had sent my info. to rakbackpros.com and they would get in touch with me.

What do you think the chances are?

If approved what RB should I see? I'm playing 50NL about 500 hands a day, 20 days a month (10K amonth).

I had to wait about 6 months. Playing that volume, I wouldn't count RB as a form of income, if your only playing that much, you need to focus on your WR.

Not even thinking about income. Just wanted a base number as I start playing more and more tables. I'm only interested now b/c I'm starting to put in more and more hands.

Despite normally having pretty graphs i must say that my graph for the last weeks worth of hands makes me sick. I hate rollercoasters in real life and sure as hell cant stand them playing poker either

questioning the doom switch operator in posts such as yours normally results in the DSO extending the bad karma... normally i never get involved between a player and the DSO, but i'll make an exception here and help you out, repeat the prayer below:

"oh great DSO have mercy on the 'roll of El Nino 1! you are the most high in the kingdom of poker... look down upon us with with your mercy and guide with your wisdom... through the power of the Red Pro (bow your head here), you have ascended into your Kingdom to send those whom do not believe and have faith in you, to the bowels of busto... grant us your peace and protect us and El Nino 1 from the Hells of Variance."

now go outside and swing a dead red rooster over your head three times then bury it beneath an oak stump holding rainwater collected from a shower occurring at midnight, along with a shock of hair from a short stacker... this has worked in the past. gl2u

Thanks.
I just cashed out for the first time last week.

To cash out by check (the only option for most) you have to send in a picture of your ID and proof of address (bank statement, utility bill, etc). I sent this stuff in and was cleared to check out within 12 hours. I cashed out a bit more than $1k and was verified 6 hours later and received my check in the mail 4 days after my request. FWIW I live in MI.

EN09 that has to be the most priceless post responses ever! Laughed pretty hard reading it. Whether i break out of the doomswitch or not i feel a lot more positive and that can only help.
Cheers for it!

Although, I can't help but wonder if the DOS is truly the deity you speak of. I can't help but picture a narrow room full of chimpanzees. The walls are covered with switches, each one bearing a name: "El Nino..." etc etc.

Wow.

Did you have to initiate the cashout first and were told to mail this stuff to them or did you contact them via email and then they told you this was their procedure?

hes currently grindin nl50, probably for rakeback bc hes not all that good, and has completely ignored all my attempts to get in contact.

what i ask you my FR grinders is to just keep it in mind when theres a chance to slowwwwwwwwwroll or just generally annoy him, thieves deserve it.

shout out to DANIELTANNER.
He's not in my db, and I am playing mostly $100 now, but if I happen across him at a table I'll be sure to ask him about this/harass him some.

So here I am posting on the interwebs. Meanwhile FTP says "trying again..." FU FTP. The DSO is on break b/c I started catching run good against the fishies. So had to step in and save the day by unplugging the server. Can't upset the fish.

Anybody else having problems. Tables were juicy too.

Wow, yeah, guess i shouldn't question what happens. I don't know what is going on overthere. Perhaps some there is a mutiny because the DSO is drunk with power and the lowly FT staff are revolting. Maybe, just maybe they saved me. Guess that means it's time for bet. Theoretically I should get up early anyway.

Edit: Also, sorry the doom switch continues. Try to stay sane, protect your BR and it will end and remember we feel your pain.

WTF is this? What on earth would keep them from giving me rakeback? Why "cannot" they do it, what could possibly hinder them?!? I don't understand that ****. Seriously, it's been nearly half a year now. Time for a different email imo:

Toedder,

I don't know if this was a factor but when I emailed them, I included a screenshot of how much rake I am paying at Poker Stars and said I'd be willing to move my action to FT. I ended up getting the magically email within a couple months after that.

Yeah, I am not sure they actually think/care about anything at all... I mean wtf, Rakeback is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT argument for FTP over Stars, if not THE ONLY ARGUMENT AT ALL, why would they implement those stupid restrictions. I would even agree to "release" Rakeback like a Bonus, but just give me those darn 27%, what is the problem... Argh, it's really frustrating

I didn't include a screenshot, but I told them how much rake I was paying monthly when I first emailed them, (~end of February) and added that I expected that to increase (And of course it did). And I too said that I would move my action to them would they give me rakeback. I mean, I am not a rake machine, but it's still profit right?

Also, I had some convo with Full Tilt, and once I used profanity, they actually send me a non-form email. And in there they said that they had resent my data to RBP, i.e. it seems like they are fine with letting me have rakeback. So after I waited quite some time I emailed RBP directly, and that was their answer. I replied, and asked for reason, didn't hear back yet. I don't understand all that. It's like dealing with Aliens.

I got rakeback fairly quickly (two weeks or so) after letting FTP know I wanted it. (I hadn't signed up through any affiliate, of course.) There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of rhyme or reason to how they decide when to give it out.
