  1. sup FTP plants? doubt they're real and yeah, obv I'd play if we all got our money back, there's completely new ownership, there was proof of segregated accounts being in place w/ reliable cashouts, support, etc
  2. he's definitely one of the best, if you understand poker at all it's pretty tough to disagree...congrats dude
  3. No, that's an awful idea. For like 954254 reasons. It's the closest thing poker has to a 'perfect' tournament when taking into account buy-in, structure, field-size (already 4-5x the 2nd biggest 10k, PCA) and perhaps most importantly, field-strength.
  4. I'll be playing most days between May 27th and mid-July, either at wsop or venetian. http://twitter.com/#!/JCohen130
  5. This is a pretty crushing blow, really dont know who I'll turn to for support going forward. The kind of relationship he and I developed over the years went far beyond the semi-annual posts, the unreturned emails, the 57 times I've been denied rakeback, and the late night support chats that were ohhh sooo supportive. Some may wonder how I will replace the void FTPSean is leaving in my life, and that's a tough question. I guess I'll have to buy a pet hermit crab or somethin...
  6. Sorry to hijack this fascinating discussion, but... Myself and most people I've talked to seem to staying in the US at least through the WSOP, and then reevaluating after July. Some have moved to Canada, Central and South America, and Europe, whereas some are considering moving to one of these places after the WSOP. Most people I've talked to have a vague idea what direction they're going to take post-WSOP, but they also maintain that these plans could change if they were to bink something significant this summer. I have no idea what I'm going to do post-WSOP. I might consider moving somewhere in Central or South America for a few months, but as of now I'm planning on staying in the US.
  7. def agree, seems like a logical no-brainer addition in order to remain a relevant community for US players
  8. this OP and anyone giving even the slightest shit about this are just trying to get attention, and have no fucking clue what's going on post-Black Friday. UB shutdown transfers. There's a decent chance they're going bankrupt. People have HUGE sums of money on there, and they're trying to find a way to get their money off before it's literally STOLEN from them by UB. Way to tattle tale on the most irrelevant issue imaginable in this day and age. WHO GIVES A FUCK?!?!?
  9. Favorite Online Poker Memory: 2nd in the FTOPS 100r in Feb '10 for $85k, which was about 4x my previous biggest score at the time iirc. The Mini FTOPS HU SO was quite enjoyable as well. Least Favorite Online Poker memory: It's all kind of a blur, which I'm pretty sure is a good thing at this point...will save me heaps on therapy. All time favorite MTT: FTP 30k 109 6-max and SCOOP/WCOOP (never had much success in them, but figured it was only a matter of time.....welp...) Best things you did with your poker money: N/A Worst things you did with your poker money: N/A Favorite everyday feeling you might get from poker: When I've been deep in something big and realized I had just tangibly improved, and was probably playing the best I had ever played at that very moment. Feeling good about a session regardless of results because I knew I had missed zero spots and made every correct decision. Watching friends get life-changing scores. Least favorite everyday feeling you might get from poker: Days/Nights when I'd FT bubble 4+ MTTs and break even. Losing internet (nothing made me feel more helpless and like more of a fish) Never wanna see at your tables again: DuckU, thestein, Bax
  10. I'd definitely be interested in organizing players to make a significant public statement, I was mainly responding to people saying 'you guys haven't done anything drastic yet, wtf is wrong with you apathetic pussies?' I totally get how a well-organized, peaceful public statement that garners significant media attention would help raise awareness about our plight.
  11. ummm, no, not close, you're doing it wrong, etc. And to Andressoprano and others talking about how apathetic the online poker generation is. There's definitely some truth to that, but the current range of reactions to Friday's actions isn't a good example of this apathy (or at least, it isn't a good example yet). Many of us are in shock about what happened and the resulting life consequences, and each person deals with this in their own way, and at their own pace. I mean, it's 3 days later, we're all still assessing the damage and attempting to come up with contingency plans for the coming weeks, months, and potentially year(s). Being reactive, "rioting"/taking to the streets (lol) would be an absurd way to handle this. If there's one thing many of us share (besides a fondness of herbal remedies and a lack of exposure to sun), its an ability to think creatively and rationally to solve problems...and to varying degrees, I believe that the current situation will test and demonstrate this ability in all of us. A huge part of poker is picking your battles. Online grinders taking to the streets against the US Federal Government isn't exactly practicing good game selection, especially when they control hundreds of thousands of dollars of leverage against us. It would be one thing if we all had control of our money, but that's not the case, and it makes this an even more unbalanced fight. Just some food for thought before jumping to the conclusions and judgments about a large, diverse group of individuals who are dealing with a crisis as best they can.
  12. welpppppp...guess this explains FTP's recent barrage of METs...wp
  13. ha, i did consider that...but it was already unbelievable enough to me as it was, so I didn't think it was necessary to embellish for affect
  14. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand it's gone edit: ok, it's back, wasn't in the lobby 15 mins ago
