I miss railing

Postby Zimba » Sun Dec 18, 2011 12:34 pm

I used to spend hours railing friends and high stakes players but feel out of touch over the last eight months since Black Friday. Is there much of a rail for the high stakes games on Stars?

I think railing has went way down hill except for the hardcore rail birds. This is because of the no chat unless you have a buyin for the stake being played. Therefore all the degens can't ask for money or give bad advice.

I've read that everything is moving forward with the new French ownership of Full Tilt Poker and settling with the DOJ. I wouldn't be surprised if it re-opens in the first few months of 2012. Just not for U.S. players.

The latest I heard about FTP relaunching to non US players is March, but that seems premature with all that still has to be done. If it's up by the WSOP I would be surprised and impressed.

The latest rumors of PokerStars purchasing Full Tilt Poker assets, repaying their players, and relaunching would invigorate new life at Poker Curious if they honor the previous affiliate relationships and our popular freeroll series. I hope it comes to pass soon.

For those non-USA players, what are the best sites and high limit players to watch these days?

The week of November 6th is the new PokerStars deadline to relaunch Full Tilt Poker for non U.S. markets. Is everyone going to withdraw their rolls, or do you plan on playing on the new site now that it's run by reliable and safe PokerStars?
