Poker Through the Eyes of an Amateur

It Makes No Sense

So Full Tilt Poker's customer support refused to unregister me from the satellite I won my way into. This is such BS. You can unregister from almost any other tournament after you have registered for it, why not a satellite? It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, and it just pisses me off. What exactly is the big deal here?

Someone please enlighten me.


  • I dunno, but lemme ask, when is this tournament and what is the usual buy-in? I might want to take it off of your hands, if the date/time is right, but it'd be tricky. We can discuss via email if you are interested.

  • Two reasons:

    1. They may not have a compariable cash prize. You won an entry into another tournament. Sometimes your equity in the second tournament is greater than the buyin (guarantees, etc).

    2. Go check the terms and conditions, this is quite common on almost every online site. They don't want people entering a tournament that is a satellite into tournament B and then bailing on tournament B. This would be no different than if you won a WSOP seat. You can't just call up and say "Unregister me from the WSOP." You won a seat. You didn't win the cash value of the seat.

  • Thanks, Bill. I guess it does make some sense after all. Sucks that I used all my points to play in this last satellite, though.
