Thx. So I buy one month of Stox membership for 3000 FT points every month I like to watch some vids.

Can the vids from both sites be downloaded so I can watch them on my Ipod or do they have some drm protection?

It's free, you just need to earn points. They dont actually get deducted from your account. its like some sort of extra rakeback

Yah I have been avoiding those sites for awhile to not give them any business but wouldnt mind a nice bankroll builder either. Probably will stay at FTP until the community decides they are fine with them again.

Yeah, I'm not contradicting myself. I'm just saying that your plan sounds like +EV bonus whoring, but I wouldn't play on UB or AP because of the cheating scandals. jmo.

Will you ever move there in the future and what will they need to do to get the approval for players to come back to the site? Or are they on perma ban?

Fish = Non logically thinking players. I love and hate it when fish decide to berate other fish. I hate it because they are killing the action but love it because they don't even realize they are the fish at the table and generally will tilt off their stack trying to bust the other fish.

calling somebody fish is just an insulting comment that doesn't mean a thing, its the same as calling somebody stupid for driving to slow, while you are driving to fast

Tried to think of another analogy but none seemed as good as yours. I give up.

TBH, I have not really been keeping up with the developments. Last I checked, 100% of the players who had been scammed had not been repaid 100% of their losses. I certainly would consider that a minimum requirement for signing up at one of those sites. A complete change in ownership and management would be nice. But I don't think I will ever play at either of those sites unless and until they are regulated by a serious licensing body.

Tell the rest of the story: you a big chunk of that stack back an orbit or two later value betting two pair with the exact line you took on the bluff (I may have folded that river, don't recall).

For my part, I am perfectly happy to run away like a little girl if I see you sit at any of my tables.

On the bonus whoring side to all this, even without the cheating deal, UB/AP's bonus clearance is really REALLY slow. Especially if you are at NL25 and below. Above NL25 you have the Bad Beat Jackpot to donate to. Checkout Bonuswhores for exact clearance rates, but you might do better with some other site, especially if you're not US.

I am a US player, which is why i was thinking about hitting up the UB site. I would like to clear that bonus but who knows if I will get around to it.
