      Hello,

      Where would you keep your FTP money? Full Tilt Poker, Moneybookers or Neteller? Where do you think is it the safest? I dont have a large sum there, close to 700, but it is a lot for me since Im just a student who used the 50 dollar starting capital.

      I'm not worried about my money on Pokerstars as they appear to be the most trustworthy company ... but on FTP? I dont know.

      Do you keep your money on FTP or is it better to transfer it to Moneybookers or Neteller? Thanks

      Pavel

      of course I want to continue playing on FTP, i just dont know if it is that safe to keep my money there. Maybe is, I dont really know, I was thinking of withdrawing 400-500 and leave the rest there to play with... I dont want to withdraw it with my VISA cuz it would be converted to my currency which I dont want for now since the exchange rate isnt the greatest...

      I heard that citizens of most countries are not able to withdraw from FTP to moneybookers now. Do you know if czech citizens can?

      AND do I have to first deposit something with moneybookers in order to be able to withdraw using them?? If I go to the cashier right now, both Moneybookers and Neteller arent available for me

      Yes, you need to deposit before you can cashout to neteller/moneybookers, min is 10$ :)

      in your hand.

      edit. seriously, nothing is 100% safe in online poker. keeping the majority of your $ in MB/NT is the best.

      So I deposited just 10 USD to FTP from MB so I could withdraw at least half of my bankroll but it doesnt let me... It says: "we cannot process your transaction at this time. Please try again later". Visa option works...
      Is it possible that I can't withdraw using MB just because I just deposited? Or does it have something to do with my nationality? I'm from Czech Rep. Thank you

      Yes, it does, Moneybookers is currently available to only three countries. See here:
