Dear Mr. Lobo,
The World Poker Tour 'World Poker Finals' event is taking place November 12-16 at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino. Due to the uncertainty of recent US legislation, Paradise has decided to provide the cash value of your $10,000 seat win directly to your ParadisePoker Player Account.
The funds have now been placed in your account balance and are available for cashout. This is detailed in your account history as per the following transaction line:
Date & Time (CST) Type Amount Reference Trans #
----------------- ---- ------ --------- -------
2006/10/05 @ 10:25:29 WPT Seat $10,000.00
Please note that you will need to purchase your World Poker Finals seat if you are planning on attending the upcoming event. Attached to this email, you'll find a "Foxwoods" document that provides tournament structure, start times and seat purchase directions should you buy your seat upon your arrival at Foxwoods. For information on how to purchase your WPT seat in advance, please call Foxwoods Resort at 1-800-FOXWOODS and ask for the Poker Room.
We regret not being able to host Team Paradise at the WPT main event at Foxwoods this fall and offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Should you have any further questions regarding your seat or if assistance is required to help expedite a cashout, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at email@example.com. Please be assured that the upcoming Team Paradise Niagara event is not affected.
Looking forward to seeing in Niagara in just a few weeks,
Amazing - sounds like they are on the fence about pulling out of the US.
I am guessing satellites to live events in the US are going to slow down. Maybe we will start seeing a lot more Live Events in Carribbean/Bahamian islands.
