      Hello. I am a US player, Therefore, I never got a starting capital from you guys. However, I still chose to deposit my own money into fulltilt's website.

      I made the final table at 3 Bounty Tournaments in the last 2 days, placing 1st, 2nd and 9th.

      Earlier today, I tried to cash out money from Fulltilt, I sent them my a scan of my drivers license, and a copy of my cell phone bill as they requested.

      I got an email back from them saying this:

      Thank you for partnering with Full Tilt Poker

      Why did I get money from you guys since I never officially partnered with you? You never gave me a starting capital starting bonus...I am just confused as to what is going on.

      Please respond and let me know what is going on.

      Everybody who registers at Full Tilt through pokerstrategy reacives 27% rakeback every week. I didn't think you could even register through being an American but apparently you can..

      Now my fulltilt poker account will not let me do anything. It will allow me to log in, and go to a table, but it will not let me sit down. Also, it will not let me register for any tournaments. I am receiving an error message that says this:

      We are sorry, but you are restricted from playing.

      THEN 5 minutes later...I get an email saying this...

      What you got was the normal rakeback that PokerStrategy transfers to all accounts which are tracked through it. You always receive 27% of your rake back at the end of the week

      as for your problems with your account i would try to ask the full tilt support whats goin on since i doubt pokerstrategy can help you there

      it sounds a bit weird though since usually full tilt doesnt have anything against american players

      good luck
