      Sort of sleazy way to draw people to your site promising a $50 starting capital if they pass a quiz.

      Well I passed the quiz on Saturday and have yet to see anything. No deposit in my PS account, no "email" requesting ID or any further information.

      Your "promotion" is a fraud and I have written PokerStars to remove any ties you might have to my account.

      So you say that over 1 mil people that actually got their starting capital don't exist ? Everyone, posting on this forum is fictional people put here by the evil brains of PokerStrategy ? LoL :D . Instead of firing up like that you could have asked for help, there is a help section where you can send tickets and resolve problems, if you do everything right and talk to support eventually u will 100% get the money.

      Hello!

      Have you ever heard of patience :) ?

      You could also check your junk e-mail, the e-mail might be there :| .

      It should be surprising to you when pokerstars confirm to you that pokerstrategy.com is their affilate site :) .

      Regards,

      Hi Eterion,

      I'm sorry to hear that you are upset. I hope we can sort things out here are a few suggestions:
      Did you check your emails, maybe you have to send your ID first.
      If you already sent it it can take up to 96 hours until you'll get your 50$.
      Did you enter all required information in your profile
      Did you enter all required information in your poker account.
      Are you living in the USA (we can't send the money to players that are currently living in the USA)

      Maybe you should also check your tickets (right hand side)
      Maybe the support tried to contact you

      Best regards,
      Chiller3k

      The promotion isnt fraud, im playing with my $50 right now ;)

      The starting capital can take up to 96 hours to get to you. And dont include weekends because most poker sites dont work weekends.

      -Make sure you check the right email account ;) Just in case
      -Are you american? Unfortunately due to the current American situation, The starting capital is not available to Americans.
      -Have you checked your tickets? There might be a problem with the transfer. ( http://www.pokerstrategy.com/home/support )

      You can also make a ticket to ask about any problems :)

      Good Luck at the tables, and best wishes :)

      -Jack

      All you ****** got there first :P Joking, i need to type quicker obv

      I have the same problem passed the quiz on saturday but didn't get the money yet. Someone who's working with funds transfers is sleeping or on vacation.

      Pokerstrategy gave me $50 and taught me how to play solid poker. Now those $50 are $1,400. In the future I have good chances to make a living off poker.

      Definitely rigged if you ask me.

      Definitely NOT a SCAM.

      I got my $50 very quickly, in about 2 days, so thanks a lot to Pokerstrategy.com.
