Default Good news for people who had money on Full Tilt poker

I had heard Pokerstars was trying to acquire Full Tilt but it seems to be offial now. I don't know if this includes U.S. players but here's what I just got from them:

"
Full Tilt Poker will re-launch under new ownership on November 6th, 2012.

The Rational Group, which owns and operates PokerStars, acquired assets of Full Tilt Poker in August 2012 and appointed new senior management to re-open and operate the site as a separate brand to PokerStars, providing the online poker community with another high-quality poker platform.

Following re-launch, you will have complete access to your account - including your full balance - and you can once again play on the innovative online poker platform that made Full Tilt Poker home to serious online poker players.

This means you'll soon be able to return to the Full Tilt Poker games and tournaments that you've known and loved for years, secure in the knowledge that your experience is now backed by the same account security and game integrity that millions of PokerStars players have trusted for more than 10 years.

Full Tilt Poker now operates under a license in Isle of Man, which is among the most trusted and rigorous e-gaming regulatory jurisdictions in the world. The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission maintains vigilant standards for e-gaming, particularly the safeguarding of player funds. Information on these standards can be found here.

Since August, we've been carefully reviewing all Full Tilt player accounts in preparation for re-opening. In the coming weeks we will be completing the restoration of all non-US player accounts including yours, in preparation for re-launch day.

What this will mean for you:

normal access to your Full Tilt Poker player account with your current password
renewed access to all Full Tilt Poker real and play-money games
access to your total balance without restriction, including withdrawals

We thank you for your patience during this time. We will update you further as re-launch day approaches. For more information please see our Full Tilt Poker account FAQ.

In the meantime, we welcome your feedback and ideas to help make Full Tilt Poker your number one poker site - please click here to visit the feedback page.

Sincerely,

Full Tilt Poker"

Can U.S. players have access to gaming on the new site? Or is it just for foreign players?

Right now just foreign players. They are paying out the foreign players and the only thing United States players can do is play with play money.

I'm guessing access is based on IP address location.

For sure. An american ISP or american IP addy cannot sign into the real money side of poker sites. But lets say you gave me your sign on and password. I go in and change your address info to mine and cash out your balance? Im not taxed in Canada for gambling winnings so there wouldnt be any issue there. THen I take that cash and just paypal it to you? Im just wondering whats stopping people from doing something like that?

Well, what I meant was, if the website sniffs a US-based IP address, then access to the real money side of the Site would be disabled.

Yes. But as soon as you try to cash:

* ID with new address
* Hydro, bank, etc statement
* Phone verification

I use an online wallet to withdraw. Just needs an account number and it puts the ewallet funds in transit.

I wont have issues getting my money out of FTP once they are and we can get in. I feel bad for US members who wont have access to their cash on hand.

Thankfully I quit playing on FTP before they got shut down. The US ban got me into playing at the casino more often and it has netted me a nice profit.

I don't think there'd be any money to cashout if US residents can't access that side of the Site to play. Only way this would work is if you logged in and played as someone from the US, but then, where's the fun in that?
