Life Shouldn't Be A Fuckin' Grind

I will never be a poker pro, but my lifetime poker ledger is positive and I think that's something to be proud of.

FullTilt Rocks!

About three weeks ago I was playing the 1:45 am Stud8 tourney on FullTilt when I started having major connection issues. It was a small tourney with only about 40 players and 4 places paying, and I was shortstacked, but not desperate in the middle stages with about 18 players or so left when this started happening. It turned out it was a FullTilt problem, as I kept getting booted, then having trouble reconnected. Others in the tourney commented that they were having the same problem and I witnessed similar issues at the cash game table I was playing as well.

I emailed FullTilt to complain and suggested that I should receive my buy-in back as this had affected not only my enjoyment of the tourney, but my ability to come back from my shortish stack and have any chance to win. Eventually, I got reconnected and ended up busting something like 11th. FullTilt sent me an email apologizing for the inconvenience and saying they'd investigate. I pretty much figured that was the end of it and probably the last I'd hear. It was only ten bucks and I wasn't going to worry about it. Though, I still felt that FullTilt probably did owe it's players something for the 10 minutes+ of connection problems. Anyhow, I'd pretty much forgotten about it until I received the following email today.
