    Yeah... always seemed a bit dodgy to be doing it over the net... it's like you're playing cards with a room full of those chinese scientists that have developed new drugs to make you better in bed and those ethopian businessmen that need your account to transer millions of $ to just because they need an engrish bank account to claim the money...

    lots of people were offered jobs in call centers in the west indies supporting these poker sites a couple years back with ridiculous salaries, some even went and i dont know what happened after that, their story kind of ends there

    I used to play Full Tilt religiously until they took double what I deposited once, then a week later my card got cloned.

    I complained to offcom & the gambling commision, they got my money back in conjunction with my bank & I got letter from The Gambling Commision saying that my case was being added to an "extensive list of similar cases in relation to an ongoing investigation into Full Tilt".

    PKR is the only site i'll use these days.

    PKR is the one. Generally better to play anyway.

    And more enjoyable when whoring the emotes xD

    The only downside is theres not enough higher stake buy in tournaments during the day, and night I suppose.

    dodgy dealings? its fuking gambling, wtf do they expect? church services and confession.

    this bullshit i'm sure, this is just Mafia shit, ie various Senators in the US government havent had their payment protection, nor has the US Tax deparment, or the Fedral Reserve, so they fuked them over
