Full Tilt Poker Claims Processor Started Accepting Petitions

The Garden City Group, Inc., company appointed by the Department of Justice to handle repayments of funds held on U.S. players accounts at Full Tilt Poker, sent out e-mails to “all potentially eligible petitioners GCG identified utilizing data supplied by Full Tilt Poker”.

The e-mails contained logon information to start the petition process on the CGC website. The company began accepting these Petitions for Remission last Wednesday with the end date of November 16, 2013.

Early reports indicate that not all players who held balances at Full Tilt Poker and even registered on the website FullTiltPokerClaims.com received an e-mail. Even if you did not receive an e-mail you can still register at the website. After you register, your estimated remission amount will be shown; if the amount is incorrect, you are asked to provide proof of your actual balance. The website also has contact information so, hopefully, CGC representatives can direct players on how to establish proof of their balances in cases of discrepancies.

Carbon Poker Unexpectedly Pulls Support Sub-Forum from 2+2

Last week, Carbon Poker decided to shut down its support sub-forum on the twoplustwo.com forums without any warning. This left a lot of players guessing as to what the real motive is.

There have been no signs lately that the site was experiencing any cash flow difficulties if an explanation were just to reduce the expenses. Cashouts were being processed at faster times than ever before, with players sometimes getting their checks within days, but no longer than two weeks. Moreover, reports from websites, such as ProfessionalRakeback.com indicated that there were not many overlays in tournaments at Carbon Poker. Overlays are normally a sign of money problems.

Some theories suggest that the likely reason for discontinuing support is a new philosophy adopted by the network – to cater more towards recreational players. If this is, indeed, the case, than the move seems perfectly logical. Given the fact that the sub-forum is mostly frequented by grinders and high volume players, renting the space on 2+2 just to appease a less favorable demographic would certainly seem like an expense the site would be willing to spare.
