The DOJ, Full Tilt Poker and My 800th Post
Friday, October 19, 2012
As it turns out, this here is my 800th post. That is equal parts awesome and lame at the same time. It's awesome because that's quite a bit of writing and work over the years and, considering so many blogs come and go, I'm happy to make it this far; that said, it's also a bit lame as I've been writing here since 2004, so you'd think I'd have way more posts. For any regular readers here, you'll recognize I've been known to take time off between my posts, especially since Black Friday. I say it often, but maybe this post will be the next spark I need to get back into writing here regularly.
My main reason for today's post is to see how many of you out there recently received the email from Full Tilt about filing a petition with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to request any available account balance? I've included a pic of the email within this post for reference. I don't know about you, but I certainly don't have enough money in my account to try and cause a stink by contacting the DOJ directly regarding my funds. Maybe I'm being naive to think that avoidance keeps me out of the mix of potential issues, but what do I know? I'm sure there are folks out there with life changing amounts of money tied up that would warrant attempting next steps, but that's not the case with me. I always attempted to keep just the right amount of fun money available online in order to enjoy some occasional cash games or tourneys, without worrying that money I needed could be gone. I really do feel for folks who had a sizable amount on deposit with any gaming site that is now frozen.
I hope everyone out there in the poker blogger world has been doing well. Drop a comment if you have any input regarding the above info.
Until next time, may the felt be with you.
