No offenceDave,what a nightmare im having with this.At first it didnt recognize my postcode,i eventually resolved that,downloaded your site ,now my password doesnt work .and why are they wanting my swift and iban numbers from my bank ???

You will need this in order to cashout. This is the case on any .fr site because of French regulations. While you can deposit with multiple methods, you can only cashout via bank transfer. French regulations also have procedures for verifying your account including mailing a 4 digit code to your home that you will need to enter within a month or so after signing up.

Hi there,

wackyJaxon is correct, your bank account information is required in order to send you any withdrawals you may wish to make. This is the only method we offer.

If you're having trouble with your password, you can reset it here.

Hope this helps!

Hello everyone!

It's my pleasure to announce the results of the Fivers' Road to Dublin Final and it is none other than JerseyGirl who walks away champion, and winner of the Winamax Poker Open 2013 package!

This experienced player is no stranger to MTTs on Winamax, consistently performing well with several big scores already and coming into the final among the favourites after qualifying with the most chips.

Once JerseyGirl hit the final table there was no looking back, taking a dominant chip lead all the way to the end. Five handed play lasted for a long time thanks to the deep structure but the chips seemed to gravitate towards JerseyGirl.

By the time three handed play arrived, JerseyGirl had three quarters of the chips in play and the outcome seemed inevitable.

Special mention to MikisZezas for coming back from around 11 big blinds to take second place, however there seemed no chance of winning heads-up play, which lasted just two hands.

Final hand:

MikisZezas: 15,182

JerseyGirl: 65,818

Blinds: 250-500 Ante: 50

MikisZezas raised from the button to 750 which was called by JerseyGirl taking us to the flop:

9h 9s 3s

JerseyGirl was to act first and checked quickly, with the response being a bet of 1050 followed by a quick call.

The turn brought the Js.

Once again JerseyGirl checked allowing MikisZezas to continue for 3000 into a pot of just 3600. Waiting just a few seconds, JerseyGirl then raised all-in putting MikisZezas at risk. Although, with around 40% of his stack in the pot, it was an easy call for MikisZezas.

The cards were then revealed showing 9c 5h for MikisZezas making trips, however JerseyGirl showed 8s 7s for the flush! Only a 9, 3, Jack or 5 on the river could prevent the tournament ending with this hand...

The river was dealt and it was the 4d! No help there, giving the victory to JerseyGirl who will be heading to Dublin to compete in the Winamax Poker Open. Congratulations!

Thanks again to all who took part in the Fivers' Road to Dublin, I really hope you enjoyed yourselves.

Finalists, well played and I will be getting your tickets credited to your accounts asap.
