About It Has Happened!
Previous Entry It Has Happened! Thursday 26 July 2007 @ 19:03 Next Entry

I've been busy with my other life, and while I did the WSoP PPV final table, I haven't done much other poker stuff lately.

However, I now know the UIGEA is now in full effect; I got this email from my banker today:

A check you gave on 06/01/07 for $ 80 by safe pay int on germany has been returned unpaid with reason “breach of regulation”.

I am mailing you the returned check today.

Online poker, in the USA, is now dead. Fortunately I got out all but this $80 (well, and another $80 that's supposedly on its way). Only $160 lost to Frist.

SafePay, International was the check issuer. Pokerroom was using them for their affiliate program. I'm using my local bank that is particularly focused on excellent customer service and jumping through hoops to get stuff done for you.

I play on full Tilt -it still works, I still get checks. Are only certain sites effected?

Appears that one specific check processor is down; it was being used by Pokerroom's affiliate program and I don't know what else.
