CheckNRaise poker is reneging on WSOP seats

I’m so angry about this I can’t hardly focus. In my mind, this is the next PokerSpot. There are just too many rooms and we know nothing of their long-term viability and financial health and there is no way to sue them.

I’ve now seen three different posts on different forums with this same letter, so I am completely convinced of its accuracy. It is addressed to those who won through the “Checkpoint to Millions” and “Freeroll to Vegas” promos.

We regret to inform you that CnR will be unable, at this time, to make a lump sum payment for the 10 WSOP seats that were won this year through the â??CheckPoints to Millionsâ? and â??Freeway to Vegasâ? promotions on ChecknRaisePoker. However, we plan to make this up to you over the coming months. We will deposit into your player account 5% or more, as cash flow permits, of the value of your entry in monthly installments starting July 31st , 2006 until 110% of the cash equivalent is paid in full.

Unfortunately our cash flow did not allow us to set aside sufficient funds from the time that you won your seat in March. If you plan to attend the WSOP in any event, we wish you the best of luck and we are sure you will have a great time.

Please accept our sincere apologies for having to break this news to you just weeks prior to the event we promised you. Please do not hesitate to contact us by return email, if you have any questions or comments. If you would like to speak to us by phone, please suggest a convenient time and provide a phone number and we would be happy to call you and provide more details and answer any questions that you may have.

Best Regards,

Erez and the ChecknRaise Team

I have no idea what can be done, but I’m happy to get on a plane to wherever with my pitchfork. This is so digusting, I feel sick for these players.  I first heard of this disgrace on an ITH thread, but I’ve now seen two more threads elsewhere.

I'm a hard-core limit ring game poker player who is becoming a degenerate sports bettor. I'm sure it will all make more sense if you read on.
