  1. To me the zombie apocalypse sounds fun, but I think I'd rather choose one of the quick and and easy ways to go, like and explosion or something.
  2. First of all, this was years ago, I was ignorant and unaware of all the evil people out there like scammers. I trusted people, but I have learned to be more suspicious of everyone now and will never do anything like that again as mentioned in my original post.Second, after reading more of those horror stories from www.paypalsucks.com, I'm surprised they are still in business. I mean, they have horrible customer service and business practices. I think the only way they are able to stay in business is always siding in a way that favors them, like in my case, even though the buyer used the money,
  3. Why would I pay when the money was already transferred to the other person? That would just mean I lose money, when it is the other person that PayPal should be trying to collect from.
  4. Wait, so the other person who I transferred the money to, does a chargeback on their credit card, and PayPal thinks I owe them? What the other person did was commit credit card fraud. Shouldn't PayPal be after them for the money instead?I remember even reporting that user to PokerStars security back when this all started and they said all the money transferred to the other person lost it to legitimate players on the site, otherwise, I'm sure they could have revered the transactions.So, basically, what you guys are saying is I'm screwed and there's no way to fix it. I guess I just have to wait
  5. Okay, before you guys say I told you so, this all started almost 5 years ago in 2006, and I was unaware of scams and scammers. I know better now, and will not let it happen again.So, anyways, here's my problem. Someone paid me on PayPal for PokerStars funds. (Yes, I know now, don't ever do those transfers.) Then PayPal reversed those transactions saying I may be the recipient of unauthorized funds and tried to take it from my PayPal account. Luckily, I had just withdrawn everything out if it. So, it leaves me with a negative balance and PayPal. I file a complaint with them and they are siding
  6. Well, my answer to the flip situation is not a yes, cause I wouldn't wonder about it. Also, no 3 outter was hit, as I didn't get outdrawn cause I was behind the whole way.I was seriously on the border at the time that hand was going on. I debated for a while between folding and calling.p.s. I'm not exactly a new poster. I just don't post much. Also, for that matter, I've been playing live poker for about 18 years now, except back then we mostly played 5-card stud and 5-card draw poker. Yes, I'm an old fart.
  7. Well, obviously. I mean, why would I have second thoughts about it otherwise.Thank for all the replies from you all though. I wasn't sure if it was the right move at the time, but since so many of you agree it makes me feel better that I made the right play.
  8. First let me say, this is not a bad beat, since I had the worst hand going in, but I do have questions about it.Playing in a Step 1 on Stars, we are down to 3 handed so we are all basically freerolling, since 3rd place gets a Step 1 re-rentry ticket.The only info that I was able to notice about the button is that he is a push/fold specialist, meaning anytime he plays a hand he just goes all-in.Anyway, here is the hand. PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 7.5 Tournament, 200/400 Blinds 25 Ante (3 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.comHero (SB) (t4912)BB (t3580)Button (t5008)Hero's
  9. Okay, so my friend said for a successful stop and go basically there's a preflop raise and then you go all in against your opponent and win the pot.So, I was playing a Double or Nothing on PokerStars and we were on the bubble. It got folded around to me in the small blind. I raised, the big blind called. I see that I have flopped a straight and so I go all in and my opponent calls and I win the pot. Is that how the Stop and Go technique works?Please ignore that fact I raised preflop with J8o and have a medium stack. I know I had much better options. I was just trying to see if I was doing the
  10. Actually, I didn't just call. I re-raised all-in. Right move? Obviously, I think it was, since that's what I did.
  11. Uh, I assume that means something for bad beat forum or something. Um, I know it's a bad beat, I said I'm not complaining about it. I was looking for advice or suggestions.
  12. So, here's the situation. I'm playing a $10+1 27 man Sit and Go on PokerStars and top 5 get paid.We're down to the last table, and I have like a litte more than average. The shortest stack shoves in kinda early position. It gets folded to me and I have AcKc. I figure he's kinda desperate and would shove with any two cards. Now here's my train of thought. I'm thinking, I can fold it and just play it safe and make it into the money. Or, I can try and get myself in a position for a top 3 or better finish. I figured, if I was going to play this hand, my best move would be to isolate and try and ge
  13. Thanks for all the support guys. I had a lot of fun. I probably won't play in another one in a while, though. It was just a one time thing. I think I'll stick to my micro limit games. Well, maybe low limit now, with a slightly bigger bankroll.
  14. Oh well. I'm out. Finished in 1986th place out of 18283.
  15. Woot. I made it in the money. So far so good, considering this is my 1st Sunday Million. Bought in from a Step 2 level, so not a bad ROI if I do say so myself.
  16. Wish me luck fellow FCP'ers. As I will cheer for you guys as well. Any last minute advice/tips?
  17. Thank you, Vtlaxer09.I was just excited and wanted others to be happy for me.
  18. What's the shortest time it took you do win at one of these? I just played a $10.40 Turbo Double or Nothing on PokerStars and it lasted exactly 11 minutes. It only took 13 hands. We barely just got to Level 3. It was Tournament #181996338, in case someone wanted to look it up for proof.
  19. So, I wrote back to the first response I got from them and here is their reply.---------start of my initial response--------Dear Melissa,Yes, I understand that for newly deposited bonus money they can expire, but my bonus dollars were saved up from over 2 years without ever expiring. I never got any notification that my old ones would expire. If I had known, I would've cleared it in a day. All I want are my bonus dollars back otherwise I might not play here anymore.I am going to post this issue on the poker forums that I'm an active part of to see if this happened to others and what they are g
  20. No, I never got any message like that, if I had I would've been more active and tried to clear as much of it as I could. Also, why is your message dated 7/21? That's the date I called and emailed them, even though they changed the bonus policy on the 1st.
  21. Here is the reply I got from the UB email support:-------------Dear Mr. [XXX]Thank you for contacting us.According to our terms and conditions, bonus dollars expire 90 days after they were credited. For this reason, we have removed them from your account since they exceeded this period of time.We have made very few changes to our terms and conditions over the years, but from time to time business considerations require that we review our promotions and make change.However the requirements of releasing them have not been modified at all, so bonus dollars will be released at the same current rat
  22. Only reason I would still play there is to try and hit the bad beat jackpot, but you know, I don't even think it's worth it anymore. I never hit it anyways.Alright, I just withdrew all of my money from there, except for 55ยข cause they don't deal with cents when making deposits and withdrawals.Now, I just have to figure out how to get my $270 Step 8 ticket out, before they decide to stop running step tournaments and take that from me as well.
  23. Oh, okay. Thanks. Gee, so there job there is just to find more and more ways to screw their customers? Maybe, I should just cash everything out and never play there anymore.
  24. I had like eight or nine hundred dollars built up over two years of deposits and now all of a sudden it went to zero. This all happened without warning. I understand if the new deposit bonuses would be affected and expire after they changed their rules, but I don't think the bonuses from previous deposits should go away as well.I have called their deposit center through the 800 number they have posted and all they did was tell me, "No, they expire after 90 days." And just told me to email support cause they can't do anything and only handle money issues. Well, what the heck to you think this i
