A Call To Arms!!



My fellow bloggers we are getting selectively screwed over. As much as I love to play at Full Tilt Poker (bonus code OSU) some of us are getting shafted. I like many of you have been playing at Full Tilt since the beginning and do not have a Rakeback. I thought my prayers had been answered when I stumbled across this this service Rakebackpros.com and I did some research on 2 plus 2 here is link and here is a link to FTPDoug on 2 plus 2 . I signed up with them on June 2nd and I waited with crossed fingers to see the rakeback.

Well it does seem that Rakebackpros.com has been able to offer a select few a rakeback, you have to be invited by Full Tilt. What a bunch of horse shit. Here are several emails that I sent and recieved yesterday.

Key points from the correspondence below:

"if you are selected to participate"

"this is not an issue which can be solved by opening another account with Full Tilt Poker, it is against our site policy to open more than one account. Though you could cease using your account, we do not remove it from our system, nor do we freeze accounts in order for players to create new ones."

"However, we do value your continued support of Full Tilt Poker, and weare currently looking into organizing something that will help players who arenot already attached to an affiliate. We have added your username to our files for further consideration. Please be patient."

Please link this up and lets see if we can get some answers, It is outrageous that some people can now get a rakeback while others can't.



Hello Shawn, As you have been informed in previous correspondence you will be contacted by Full Tilt Poker if you are selected to participate. We feel we have been more than accommodating in answering several emails from you on this subject in the past. At this time, we must advise you that, while we will be more than happy to answer your questions or concerns on any other topic, we will no longer be responding to any correspondence from you regarding receiving rakeback,


Regards,

I have been a very active in participating and publicizing all the blogger tournaments the we poker bloggers utilize on full tilt, and I was a proud member on team full tilt at the 2007
WSOP main event. I really think that I should be selected and don't want to
"excluded" from the benefits of a rakeback just because I not on some list. I do
have rakebacks on bodog and Pstars but choose to play on fulltilt because of the
way your site treated the poker blogging community.
Please consider inviting me
to participate with rakebackpro.com sooner than later.

It is my understanding that you have invited a "select few" that allready had an account through rakebackpros.com, why cant I be put on the invite list or at least afforded the opportunity that you have given to others that didnt have a rake back. i have been a strong advocate of full tilt and promoted it extensively on my blog. All I am asking is that you give me the same benefit that you have given others.

Hello Shawn,


Thank you for contacting Full Tilt Poker.
Full Tilt does not pay players rakeback directly. There are a number of rakeback affiliates who offer players up to 27% rakeback if they sign up to Full Tilt Poker through their site. >> >>Please note that this is not an issue which can be solved by opening another account with Full Tilt Poker, it is against our site policy to open more than one account.

Been through tat carousel already. You'd figure they'd be beating the doors down to get more $ from donks like you and me...

Pokerstars has been really good to me, so I've decided to eff FT until they can offer me rakeback.

I signed up and gave up also.

What horseshit!

And that's a true tragedy!
