                Well if your betting with off shore services it maybe time to be very careful on how much money you leave in your account . Does anybody know what they think will happen in the near future ? I assume if they get busted your money will be gone because naturally they would stiff everyone . edward your on top of everything , what do you think ?  like lawrence olivier said in movie marathon man !  IS IT SAFE !         RTP

It's a tough situation.

Personally, I think Carrothers was nothing more than a pawn to get to Kaplan (the CEO of BOS).  Offshore, I only use Pinny and CRIS, and I'm confident in their ability to pay (definitely cash rich -- still, who knows what happens in the end).  Still, however, I cut my balances, and will be keeping the majority of my bankroll for these places in Neteller.  If all else fails, I'll just re-up if I have to...but if the poop hits that proverbial fan, I'll only be out maybe $500-$1k.

For now, I think it's a pretty gray area -- and I don't think there's any way that a bettor in the US could be tried in a court of law.  Still, if they go after a shop for tax "evasion" -- who knows.  I'll be keeping my balances tight.

Best,
EW

You can find other places that have different withdrawal policies.  I'll PM you.

I would never trust any off shore gambling site and here's why. Two months ago I deposited $20 into a big name poker site just for something to do. I knew going in it was probably crooked and thought it might not be that bad for small stakes. I went all in with a pair of kings and hit the third king on the flop. The other guy had a queen and three of diamonds. On the river another queen of diamonds pops up and gives him a flush. After verifying what I saw on the hand replay I became angry at myself for being stupid enough to send the crooks money. After numerous emails with the hand replay included, they sent me a reply calling me a sore loser and that I should improve my game. I was so mad I had a near death experience. I had $16 left in my account and closed it. It cost me $8 to cash out. I still haven't received my $8 and my e-mails are ignored.

I have no idea what site you were playing, but I've played about 130,000 hands of online poker, and I've NEVER seen duplicate cards.  I would love to see the hand history -- although I'm nearly certain you are mistaken.  What site was it?

If you are mistaken about the duplicate card -- you ARE just a sore loser.  You were running as a 70/30 fav, and you got beat.
