Alright. Great job everyone! Everyone paid with no real issues. All winners should be paid out now. If you think you have money coming, or if you think I sent the wrong amount, let me know.

Hey fellas, just so everyone knows for some reason PokerStars isn't allowing late registration for these tournaments now. Just looking at twitter I think they've had some bugs allowing some late regis

Yes he did!

Believe UniAlias was 2nd and BigJimsomething(?) won.  Don't take my word for it though.

Railbirded the whole tourney.  Antes/blinds sure escalate fast.

Are there workarounds for cash games these days or is all still completely shut down?  

ETA:  Google is my friend.  Any hidden downsides to the offshore stuff?

I think vwstone won, and big John was second. But I’m not certain.

Uni,

I owe you 132 for 2nd.

I show 2 people unaccounted for

@cosjobs

Deadlypillows (PS)....is this @Mr. Ham?

1 of them I believe paid but didn't put their info in the payment....which means I believe 1 of them still owe 20.

I can send you 112 or to avoid transactions i can send when I get the last 20

speaking of PayPal

Is there anything against their terms to send to friends? A limit? Is mentioning poker, still cause for ban?

 

I would not mention poker.     Never had a problem with friends

Do not mention Poker. Just send it to friend. I run a large March madness squares pool every year (except this year 😔) one year PayPal flagged me and locked my account down for two weeks. I had to acknowledge the rules.

Can you confirm the address?

The only $40 payment I show was from initials GW and the note "For mwoot15 and Duckzz"

I also don't show you playing the 1030 G2

shrug. sorry. I guess I did not click the final confirmation button last night. Did not play second game

Is there hand histories of these tourneys? I can't find a link in settings. 

In game 2 when we got down to the final two players I had like 33K chips and cgrdrjoe had like 5k. He asked me jokingly if I wanted to chop. About 4 hands later the roles were reversed and I was asking for the chop (jokingly too). 

During HORSE someone asked me how could I have possibly lost that game. I know he flopped a 10/7 two pair that beat me on a big one but I don't recall what else happened other than I must have really played it bad.

God I'm bored.  We should keep cash games going in case people wanna sit down anytime.  No idea how you bank that, seems like a PIA

I think we could do it, but it gets really tricky with the rake and multiple buy ins. We did it with some buddies a week or so ago, and it took the guy who is the chair of the economics department at Stanford to figure out the payouts.

I don’t remember, I was hammered but I got the deck thrown at me there late.

No.  My wife’s account was permabanmed and they held her funds for a year for an online raffle she was doing with a bunch of other women. 
 

Don’t ever mention poker.

also, I wouldn’t continue to have one person collect and disburse payment.  It’s too obvious.

Yea

Been worried about that. Took me like 4 years new home address/bank account and I am back in..not sure if coincidence or they didn't catch on. 

I'm no Warren Buffet but seems really shortsighted by them to be hard on this when there is a lot of competition with apps allowing people to transfer money.

Eta...I suppose we could always go to venmo....or just pay 21 and call it service?

As long as you don't mention gambling they can't prove anything. We're all buddies just shipping money back and forth.
