      Hi all,

      I got 1 day left (recieved my 50 dollar on Pokerstars on 4 Jan 2010) and still need 470 more FPP on Pokerstars :( guess im screwed!

      Due to lack of time i did not get to play verry much but im on 52 Dollar now so i guess i have 2 dollar proffit.

      What should i do ?? is it 100% sure that they gonna take away the 50 dollar ? cause i read that sometimes they dont take back the cash..

      If its 100% sure i guess ill start up a few 5$ sng's tonight and hope for the best (altough its against my bkr :( i guess i have no BKR tomorrow).

      can a moderator/admin please let me know if they will take it back ? or if they can stop the process somehow ? ;)

      Regards,

      Roachor

      Hi Roachor,

      I'm afraid that this decision is made by the poker room itself. I don't know how Stars handles this, but I would advise you to get in touch with their customer service and explain them the situation.

      Best of luck,

      Hadi

      oke will do :) i guess this is just a prevention against people that dont play anymore and leave the 50 dollar on their account forever..

      Thanks :)

      just for future reference i just got a mail back:

      " Unfortunately we are not able to extend promotional period time for any
      players. "

      ...

      Funny note though.. i was playing 1 dollar sng's and accidently joined a 3 dollar sng... and i won that 1 :D so i have a little bankroll for when they take back my cash..

      (they still did not take it back so :x)

      Are you talking about your $50 starting capital deposited from Poker Strategy to your account at PokerStars? If so, I don't think you are going to lose this.

      I think you must be referring to a first deposit bonus that most sites offer for a limited time where they match your deposit based on the amount you play.

      Hope this helps and hope you don't blow through your bankroll in a mad gamble to beef if up thinking that they are going to withdrawal $50...

      "To clear the $50 you'll have to collect 500 VPPs (Frequent Player Points system of PokerStars) within the first 90 days..."

      If you got your starting capital 4th January then you still have 1 month left :D
