It has certainly been another eventful time in the fight for poker rights. I encourage you to view a terrific video by PPA Executive Director John Pappas. In it, he shares insights from Capitol Hill and the progress being made. This video was sent to 2013 members last week and is a great example of the timely insider information you can get by becoming a 2013 PPA member. Please join today.

Instructions for Finding Your Full Tilt Poker Balance
Full Tilt Poker Claims Administrator Garden City Group will start accepting applications for remission of Full Tilt Poker balances on September 16th. You may wish to check and see what they have on record as your balance. To find your current Full Tilt Poker balance, you will have to download your account history. I downloaded mine and it was pretty straightforward. Here’s how to do it:

  • Go to and download the client.
  • Open the client and log in. Your old login credentials should still work.
  • Go to “Requests” in the menu bar and select “Account History…(Web).” A web page will open where you can initiate a request for your history.
  • Select the date range for your request. I chose an end date a couple of weeks after Black Friday (choose something like 5/1/2011) and a start date a few months prior. Once done, click “submit.”
  • You will receive an email when the file is ready for download.
  • Once you receive the email, select “Account History…(Web)” in the “Requests” menu of the FTP client, download the ZIP file from the web page that opens, and simply open the Excel-compatible spreadsheet.
  • If you don’t have Excel (or a compatible spreadsheet program), you have some free options. One is to use Google Docs. Another is to download MS Excel Viewer. I downloaded it myself to verify I could open this spreadsheet. It works fine. Another is to download LibreOffice.

For your FTP point balance, open the cashier in the client. While our cash balances are not there, our point balances are.

Be sure to pay close attention to the dates, as the window is short. GCG will start accepting applications for remission on September 16th and will stop on November 15th.
