      I just opened betfair account trough PS and deposited 20$, but there was 1.5% fee for visa card and i was thinking that this will be added to it and my card will be charged 20.30$ but actually the put on betfair account 19.70$ what a confusing site.

      So i will not get entry to freeroll either unless do new deposit?

      Hi again,

      Unfortunately, it appears that you are not tracked via PokerStrategy.com and therefore you are not eligible to participate in this tournament. :(

      However for future reference: fees that are deducted when making a deposit will not be taken into account for the qualification criteria.

      Hi Ingrid,

      Thanks for your help, Its showing in the lobby now, I deposited 14 GBP, which is 22 bucks, I take that will be ok? You say in your post the equivalent of 20 bucks is 15GBP

      Loving your work by the way, did well in the ladbrokes 10k, this site is great!

      Thanks

      Hi again :)

      You need to deposit $20 or currency equivalent (GBP15) but if it showed GBP14 ~$22 I suppose it should be alright.

      I shall check it for you anyway and see because I have a feeling that since they mentioned specifically GBP15 they might make a fuzz about it ;)

      Thanks so much for the kind words :heart:

      Hi Ingird,

      Any news on whether i'm in the 10k freeroll? In your first post on this page and on other instructions there is no mention of having to make a 15GBP depsoit, just $20.

      Thanks
