      Hi Toffy

      AFAIK the legislation in France is that players can only play in against each other. So i guess that you can't

      Well I heard foreigners actually CAN play on the French sites, but they'd ofc have to be in total compliance with the law. Then again, I found this statement on hearsay, so I'm not too sure.

      I was considering making the move a few months ago so could play in EUR. Spoke to support and they said it was no problem (I'm in UK) and I'd be eligible for the FDB but my fulltilt.com account would be closed.... I'll try find the email for you now

      EDIT: Heres the message, guess I was wrong about the .com...

      I have an account on both platforms, the only problem is that the .fr is suspended too...
      Another thing, once you sign up on the .fr you will have to send some documents ( identity card copy, etc) within 1 month (Maybe it was 2, I don't remember for sure) to be able to keep on playing and you will have to "link" your ftp.fr account with a bank account (at your name and address), the only authorized transfers, in and out of your ftp.fr account will be on this bank account. You will receive by postal mail a code to keep your account active once you have done the paperwork.
      I am French (but living in Romania) so I have a french bank account, but my wife is Romanian and have her bank account here and had no problems at all to do these steps.
