      As far as I have understood, Titan Poker doesn't really love those kind of player's that don't deposit, but just play for PS starting capital or freeroll's, because to withdraw any amount of $ you have to be deposited first.

      I clearly understand that you have to deposit to withdraw to credit card, but I just wanted to withdraw to moneybookers, but since I can't do it, I have no idea what to do, because I wont deposit my own money.

      And this makes me wanna leave TP asap, since I feel a quite disappointed. I have registered to a lot of poker rooms but this is first time I see something like this. Then what is the point of playing freeroll's if you can't even withdraw that money?

      Don't be too upset. This is absolutely standard pretty much every site makes you deposit at least minimum amount before you can withdraw anything. The purpose of this is to prevent fraud.

      So even on PokerStars I will need to deposit first?

      I agree, withdrawing can be hard - almost like they want you to keep it in so you can blow your ... ur yes, you have to deposit usually.

      Ok, I have no choice. What is the minimum deposit form Visa and will it charge some kind of fee when I register my Visa to TP?

      Hi krekeris,

      LuborC is right. Not only Titan but almost every site requires you to deposit a minimum amount before you can withdraw to the same method. It's simply part of security methods.

      If you want to use moneybookers for withdrawals, you will need to use moneybookers to deposit 1st. This is what I have seen in pokerstars. Maybe it is also true in Titan.

      And again I'm lucky to be on poker site where minimum deposit is 20 euro instead of 10. :/ I hate to QQ all the time, but it seems that I always choose the wrong place. Only thing I can do is wait till I'll have some more money on my credit card and then decide what to do.

      After a lot of discuss with Titan's support i found out that it is one way to withdraw from titan without depositing. Wire transfer. But you need to know that minimum is 100 euros.

      Exactly! It works this way on many sites, but you have to wait longer time to recieve your money.

      I have no idea what wire transfer means, but I would love to hear if someone would be so nice to explain it to me. :)

      i dont get it what is the big deal???? just deposit minimum it varies from 10$ to 20 euros...it is not nearly a lot of money in my opinion.....deposit, wait 24 hours and cashout... it is simple as that

      a wire transfer means it is transfered to your bank account!

      So the minimum deposit is 10$? If that, than it is no problem.

      How swiftly did you do the 50 - 300 $ turn? :) Cash games, SNGs?

      I am asking because I started experimenting there too and the micro SNGs seem weird... very very tight play.

      Stupid ID Checks which they dont have on PaddyPowerPoker another one of the iPoker Network sites. Which sucks balls cos I have no way of getting an ID sent to them. Typical muck from a terrible website and network.
