All the bloggers have received their Full Tilt Poker refunds, except moi. I didn't play at FT much, and only made a small deposit so I could play an occasional blogger tournament. Still, I would have liked to get my money back.

While I was in Las Vegas, this arrived in my e-mail box (amount X-ed out):

  1. Well, that's a good deal, right? Good things do happen, occasionally. Thanks for your interest in the book!

  2. Congrats! I thought I was the last person to receive the deposit (I got my deposit earlier in April) but apparently not... It felt good to finally clear that money - it was a nice windfall!

  3. Dave, I think we'd both have appreciated a UB refund a lot more. I did about the same as you on FT -- a bit deposit for the occasional bloggerfest. I got ~$75 back from FT and got it early on. Guess they like me better.
