And in Poker Community Apology News…

March25

So about 8PM GMT I received an email from another player that I was still signed up for the SEO freeroll on FTP and being blinded off.

I thought this was strange because the tourney didn’t start until 9pm. hmmmmm

I logged in and played - about half the field was being blinded off. An hour later nearly 20 people signed in to find they were massively shortstacked (1400 chips vs 8k plus for the people who were playing).

It also came out that at least three players who had signed up with confirmation on the SEO website had not been entered into the tourney at all. Meanwhile, I, who had asked to be removed from the tourney was there.

If anyone needed confirmation of what a shady organization this SEO is, you have it right there.

Haley deserves a lot of credit for exposing this, I’m afraid with my last post I vented my frustration at her. I am sorry for lobbing a Boyd bomb at you - to each her own. I hope you understand that had I known how shady these guys were, I never would have signed up in the first place.

(PS I finished 10th - out of the $, which is probably karma’s way of telling me I shoulda gone to bed)

    Apology accepted, Facty. My overriding goal in all this has been to heighten awareness, and if that’s happened, then maybe it’s all for the better.

    Unfortunately, getting bloggers to think is the easy part.

    Hey there, I linked to your blog from Wicked Chops. I have gotten myself blinded out of MTTs many times. What is this SEO you speak of?
