I was just basically saying that they don't really verify that stuff on many sites.



EXACTLY :-B


They do when you cash out. ;-)

You want an example of what really happens? Here you go:

http://www.pokersourceonline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1977&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=checks&start=0

That's from November of last year (I used this one simply because it's a good read and has responses from user "Gaming Club Poker" which is a representative of The Gaming Club), but I can find you plenty of examples of where poker sites verified all information and made the members jump through hoop after hoop. They do check and they do verify everything.

Oh, and for anyone who reads the 3 1/2 pages in the link, I did play at TGC and made a nice chunk of change. I still have an account with them. Customer service is solid and the site is pretty good. Overall I give them a solid review other than the excuse they use for the random security checks, but if you read the link, you'll understand why. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Not really. I pretty much agree with you. The guy from that site seemed to act like he was helping but he didn't do much. I would much rather wait a little to get signed up for a legit site than have to wait a while until they were able to get me my $$.

I'd go with Pokerstars. I plan on buying in there myself in the next few weeks.
