Default Choice Poker ... remember them?

Received this little gem from Choice Poker.
Do I dare try getting my money out of these b*stards. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Dear ,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding while we searched for a solution to get Choice Poker back into action.

Over the past few weeks we have held discussions with our oldest client that runs ACR network of poker rooms. We are pleased to announce that they have agreed to accept Choice Poker on their network and assume all the liabilities for Choice Poker, including the current credit balances of players such as yourself. Last week we have completed integration of Choice Poker onto the ACR network. We are pleased to announce that Choice poker is back in action and we are looking forward to seeing you at the tables.

Although we apologize for the length of time it has taken to organize a final compensation package, please understand that the extra time was necessary to ensure that your interests and your current balance are fully protected.

From this point onward Choice Poker will continue operation as an independent poker room that will be linked into the ACR network. All payment processing and cash-outs will be underwritten by ACR and BetCRIS. BetCRIS is the sports book behind ACR. BetCRIS is one of the largest, oldest, and most reputable offshore sports books. This new arrangement also means that you will be able to play in BetCris's sports-book and casino.

Once the integration is complete you will be able to enter Choice Poker the same way as you are doing now. Simply click on the desktop icon, wait for the software to update, and the card-room lobby will appear. You will not notice any changes and you will not need to do anything differently to continue playing with Choice Poker. The only difference will be that now you will have hundreds of players to play with instead of the few that Choice Poker had before.

As part of the rescue package we have agreed that as soon as Choice Poker is re-opened on the ACR network, Choice Poker players with a current credit balance will have their credit balance restored in full and available for play as soon as we re-open.

During this transition period Choice Poker players will be required to play "x" number of hands (on 1-2 games or higher) equivalent to their current credit balance before cashing out their credit balance. For example, if a Choice Poker player's current credit balance is $100, then that player will be required to play 100 hands on 1-2 games or higher before qualifying to cash-out of 100% of their credit balance.

However, Choice Poker will allow all players to cash-out 50% of their credit balance upon achieving 50% of the required play as explained above. For example, if a Choice Poker player's current credit balance is $100, then that player will be required to play 50 hands on 1-2 games or higher before qualifying for cash-out of 50% of their credit balance.

In addition, Choice Poker wishes to compensate their valued players for being patient and understanding. Accordingly, all Choice Poker players that have had account balances since April 1st. will receive a "We're Sorry" promo bucks bonus equivalent to 25% of their credit balance on April 1st. 2004.

And finally, to "Cap it" all off, all players that remain loyal to Choice and continue playing until December 31st. 2004, will further receive a 50% "rake rebate" for the previous 3 month period of play. This is in addition to any bonuses, comps or promotional money that you may receive or subscribe to during this period.

In closing we would like to thank Americas Cardroom and BetCRIS management for this generous offer and we hope that all of you will remain loyal to Choice Poker.

Have a Lucky Day!

Sincerely,

The Management of;
Choice Poker, and
DobroSoft, Ltd. (Software Provider to Choice Poker)

So in essence they are saying come back and play some more and we might give you your money back. Nice.

I dont think there intentions are to scam you into playing a few hands with money they already had. It would leave a better impression if they just gave our money back no strings, but im sure they had a reason for making us play 1 hand per dollar. Im willing to give it a go to get my money back.

Being backed by ACR/BETCRIS does nothing for me, they are as likely to steal your money as choice did anyway. I never played there (Choice) and glad I didn't and I never will play at anything to do with ACR/Fabulous Poker again.

Of course there's a reason. ACR wouldn't take on the balances if they knew everyone was just going to cashout and quit.

I'm happy that I'll be able to get my money back, but it definitely takes balls to steal my money then say, "OK, we were just kidding about robbing you. You can have your money back. Oh, but there are some conditions."

Ok the curiousity got to me so I logged in to see what was happening. I think I had about $200 and a bunch of bonus money in Choice Poker when it died. Now my balance is an even $100 with no bonuses showing. This gets better and better. If anyone successfully gets a penny out of there let us know, I will wait a while before even attempting to deal with these bozos.

Does that mean that we can start playing now? I got the impression from the email that they weren't back up yet.

JMHO - if you thought your money was gone this is a good event. Betcris/ACR is a site I would trust my money with. I think I have a couple of thousand dollars on these sites.

The promo bucks/bonus dollars are not that great. The bonus dollars are just a partial rake rebate. The games used to be very tough! I have not played there in several weeks. At times I thought I was the only non prop on the site. I never propped there but many of the 'established 2+2er's' did.

ACR is forcing you to play x number of hands hoping you will like the site, or more importantly, become a Betcris client. With my limited knowledge, it seems that Betcris did a noble thing by assuming Choice Poker's accounts. Best wishes to ACR and the players for hopefully a win/win situation!

Thank you,

Jim Kuhn

Assuming this is true, you are very very lucky.

While ACR may not be the best room in the world, they are rock solid financially as they are backed by CRIS sportsbook.

Anyone who says, that they are not solid financially does know what the hell they are talking about

I dont think you'd hear the Pokerspot players complaining about a deal like this.

Funny, people can complain about anything. Even when it's a good thing like what ACR did for Choice poker players.

What's next? People complaining about not getting the Empire bonus?
