Four days after my withdrawal request of June 2nd, they emailed me and said there was a problem with their third party processor, here's a $150 bonus, sorry. I said no problem and re-initiated the cash out. That was June 10th. I emailed them yesterday, and they said that the funds may be in my account in 20 biz days. Wow. Now I am disappointed and concerned. So I said can I cancel the bank transfer and have a check mailed, but they said no. So basically my money is in cyber-limbo and I can't do anything about it. If I get it by July 8th it will be fine (20 biz days from June 10) but I am losing faith in FTP.

Anyone experience similar problems? Do I have any recourse? Will I ever get the funds, and if so, any idea how long I can expect to wait? Any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks.
Update: funds received, FTP is the greatest. Carry on.

1. KK I raise get 2 calls, one player was running 60/40 and playing a very very loose game. Flop comes 10103 we get it all in on the flop which I think is rather standard being that the short stack moved all in he cold called and then I shoved over top for 20 more... he has quad 10s. Full stack lost

2. AA tight player raises and repop he calls flop comes Q73 rainbow which is very nice, but QQ is in his range. I am not sure if people get away from this hand, but I cant... we get it all in on the turn and he has a set of queens. Full stack again

3. QQ against a 75/35 board comes 9 7 3 ,2 hearts , he fires at me a 3/4 sized bet into about a 6.5 pot I think a bit and shove him all in for 23 more lol he calls on the flush draw and I have the Q redraw.... he hits it I love another stack + a lil bit.

4. 55 I flop a set nice 7 5 3 board very good. super easy hand to play he decides to push all in for 11 bucks in a 3 dollar pot. I make the easy call he has AQ no flush draw..... 2 4 turn and river and he straights on me. lil more then half a stack

5. KK Very rough board esp against a guy running 80/0 comes 456 all clubs I have the king of clubs. 3 people in the pot 1st to act leads for a pot bet, the 80/0 calls, I decide to push the hand all in prob not the best move, but these nutballs could be doing this with anything. They both call with a set and a STRAIGHT FLUSH lol another full stack lost.

There were a few other little suckouts, but hey thats the norm you can't win them all. Now even with all of those major coolers on me I managed to win 1.5 BIs. I am able to do very well at 25NL, but has anyone run this cold before? I am talking about these kinda days are prob 1 in every 3 times I play for the last month and a half. I had to drop back down to 50NL, not because I am losing money, but because my BR has become stagnant due to the amount of coolers against me. Am I supposed to be able to fold those hands? Lets see what people have to say about this because it was a heck of a day.
In all seriousness, I have at least one session like this per week. i don't think this is all that uncommon a session, tbh.

You had three overpairs run into sets or better on the flop. If you played 1000 hands, you played AA/KK about 8 times. So your overpairs ran into a better hand 3/8 times instead of 1 in 8 times--this is bad, but not earth shattering or even remarkable, really.* Tomorrow you will play AA/KK 8 times and they will hold up every time and you'll barely be running bad at all for the two sessions combined.

The suck out on your set was pretty bad, but the guy spiking the flush draw is pretty standard. But you just have to console yourself with the fact that you were ahead both times and in the long run you are praying for there to be thousands of players who will play this way against you.

You probably should have lost less with the KK hand. I don't mind getting stacks in with AA and the A of clubs, but with only the K I am going to play a pot control hand. There was no value in overshoving, though, as almost nothing (at most) calls that you beat.

________________________

*If you played more than 1000 hands, then of course, this bad run is even less of a bad run, and may not even have been a bad run at all if you played, say, 3k hands.

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

one a week mpethy...I am wish I ran like you. Of course I have at least 1 150+BB complete spew play by me that I am like "well that was stupid, I knew it was stupid, I knew it was dumb at the time, yet I still did it."

On another note, I need to to keep a journal of all the stupid plays I am seeing. I just lost KK in a 4bet pot 3 way on a K25 board that wen that went runner 3 6..of course the guy flatted 4 raises PF and open shove the flop with J4o...

Best from last night. I raise AKs from UTG and get 5 callers. Flop comes 433, it checks around, turn is a T, MP1 donk leads for a minbet $0.5..me and two other guys call...River is a T..checks down. MP1 donk had 33...SB had JT......pot was about $6.5......UNREAL Slowplay.

there is an FTP echecks thread up in the internet forum, may want to check there. Seems to change daily.

I have been withdrawing fine, but I haven't tried to make a deposit for over 2 years now, so I have no idea.

ZOMG, your vandergata??? I totally had a sick spot last night with you when I had KK and I ended up folding on a 2 2 4 board in a three-way pot and you ended up having the same hand as me. You remember the one I'm talking about? I'm too lazy to dig up the HH, but I opened for 2, some guy 3-bet to 8 and then you cold-called outta the BB. I then called (debatable) as your smooth-call seemed an awful lot like aces to me. The flop came 2 2 4 like I said and you checked, I checked, 3-bet guy went all in for just over pot and you then over-shoved and ended up having KK as well. I was talking with my coach and a friend and I was wondering if I 4-bet pre-flop are you ever going to fold?? We have a fairly decent sample on each other I believe, my SN is SchruteFarms.

Well I guess it is good to know that you have sessions like this as well. I wish it was only once a week though I think for me it has been more like 3 out of 7 days of play and it is really crushing my win ratio hard. Haven't been able to climb up much at all even with rakeback and had to drop down to 25NL to find my game again. At 50NL I was eating these beats and losing money at 25NL I can usually crush the game hard enough so that cards don't matter too much.

Running bad4L,
it doesn't matter tho, poker isn't about winning money today, it's about winning at the end

I'll look up that hand for sure. I was so pissed yesterday because I was REALLY getting tired of flop folding QQ/KK/AA; despite being at tables full of droolers! You are, however, one of the few people I actively avoid during play. see ya round.

FTP RNG Guy: Can you PLEASE stop putting 4 to a straight on the board on the turn when I have an overpair? tyia.

OMG, I totally feel really bad now. I obviously would never be so blatantly rude to anybody and I apologize for looking like an ass. I never, ever have chat on during cash play because watching people whine about standard stuff kinda tilts me after awhile. I probably turn chat on once a month and it's usually during a tournament or something. I dunno, it just helps me keep my focus etc. Anyways, "sup bro" right back atcha' mpethy!

UGH. lost 5ish buy in's last night. Ran -EV last night. That was fun. All in vs 2 players, my AA vs JJ and QTo (of course) on a ten hi flop. needless to say, I was drawing dead! Looks like I'll be... sniff sniff... dropping down to 25nl. (with a bankroll of $500 it seems like the most logical choice, but it makes me sad anyhow).

that's my rant/whine.

OMG yeah. 10 buy ins at NL 50 would be enough to give me cold sweats at night. I'd grind the BR up a bit before playing much fidy unless you have outside money that you are willing to deposit.

stepping down is easy for my calculator to tell me. Hard for my ego to do.

16 Tables + Rakeback = 50NL next week.... hopefully!

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

Last night was horrible for me too. I hate whining because I think its a bad habit to get into, but I can't help myself. I had KK vs AA at 100 NL three separate times against fish playing at least 55/22 so I couldn't really do anything. Then I got all in with JJ on a J 9 8 board for 2 buy-ins against 109o and lose of course. Saturday better be more fun IMO.

PS- Mpethy, I hope I have erased myself from the **** list

I was j/k about the **** list. I figured you had chat off.

oh, and as I said a few posts up, all the 4 straighted boards were a result of me getting dealt AA/KK at a high rate. Every single time I saw a flop, bam! 6[c]7[c]8[c] like clockwork. 9[h] on the turn and **** like that. still did ok, though. nothing special, a solid 2 buy ins and change.
