After much thought and consideration, Full Contact Poker has decided that it is in the best interest of its poker players to merge with one of the industry’s top poker sites, PokerStars.com. As part of this merger, all FCP player balances (cash and player points) will be transferred to PokerStars. Full Contact Poker and PokerStars will try to make the account transfer process as easy and seamless as possible.We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding during the transition process, which will take place over the next few days. Please take care to read the information that follows very carefully. Full Contact Poker will cease all poker and casino operations in all countries and return FullContactPoker.com to its roots as a forum-based poker community that features Daniel Negreanu and his popular blog, video diaries and a new video poker school that is in development. FCP players now have the opportunity to shift their FCP accounts over to PokerStars, where they will join over 9 million other players on the World’s largest poker site, assuring themselves of a game of poker any time of day.In a separate agreement, Daniel Negreanu has signed as a member of Team PokerStars, showing his commitment to where he sees the future of online poker.The soon-to-be-revamped Full Contact Poker website and community will now have the best of both worlds. Daniel will continue to be an active leader in the FCP Community, while at the same time PokerStars has agreed to become the new home for many of our community’s online poker events, including Negreanu’s Protégé 3, future Weekend at Daniel’s events, the weekly Negreanu Open and much more!The following is a list of very important dates and details on how the transition of players from FCP to PokerStars will happen:· Monday, June 11th - The following software functions will be turned off:o FCP players will no longer be able to make real money deposits at fullcontactpoker.como FCP players will no longer be able to make withdrawal requests through Full Contact Poker. However, you will be able to make withdrawal requests from PokerStars once you have initiated your account balance transfer to PokerStars (these account transfer instructions will be detailed in an e-mail message to this address directly from PokerStars on Thursday, June 14th)o FCP Casino will be shut down· Tuesday Morning, June 12th - FCP poker room on the Digital Gaming Network will be shut down and players will no longer have access to the software.· Until Wednesday morning, you will still be able to log into your player account to view your account balances and FCP points balance. You will also be able to redeem your FCP points for merchandise in the FCP Store. After Wednesday morning around 9:00 am EST, your FCP points will no longer be available to redeem in the FCP Store, but they will be transferred to PokerStars and converted into PokerStars Frequent Player Points (FPPs). For every 2.5 FCP points you have, you will receive one PokerStars FPP that can be used in the PokerStars store and/or redeemed for tournament entries the same way current PokerStars players are able to redeem their points.· Wednesday Morning, June 13th - FCP player accounts will be locked and players will no longer be able to log into their FCP accounts. At this point, all player account balances will be prepared for transfer to PokerStars. (Note: Bonus money balances will not be transferred to PokerStars and will expire.) All currency conversion adjustments necessary to determine a final U.S. dollar value will use the international currency rates posted for June 13th, 2007.· Finally, by Thursday, June 14th, PokerStars will send FCP players a welcome e-mail and have a secure web application ready for you to authenticate your account identity and then transfer your account balances.The welcome e-mail from PokerStars will detail the final transfer instructions and confirm the day and time you may begin this authentication process. We kindly request that you do not contact PokerStars Support prior to receiving this email, as they will not be able to give you any details on how this procedure will work at this time. Once it becomes active, you may also visit the following link to access these transfer instructions https://www.pokerstars.com/welcomefcpIf you signed up at FullContactPoker.com or FullContactPoker.net, but never created a real money account, you too may receive an e-mail from PokerStars describing their services and explaining the best way to create a new account. If you wish to learn more about PokerStars, please visit http://www.pokerstars.com.For the latest news please visit the Full Contact Poker website and forums, where we’ll be making updated announcements and addressing any commonly asked questions. If you have questions that are not addressed on the FCP website and forums, you can send an e-mail to info@fullcontactpoker.com.We sincerely thank you for your business and support during the past two years and look forward to an exciting new beginning with a restructured FullContactPoker.com website and a relationship with PokerStars.-Team FCP

Not so much merged as your FCP real money balance and FCP points being transferred to your existing Poker Stars account.

FCP INFO or INFO2 -This might not matter, but thought I'd ask just in case I missed it somewhere....Should we transfer all our funds in the cashier account or the DGN poker account for the transfer?Thanks

Hi Porcupine, it doesn't matter which of your accounts you have your money in, you don't need to move it yourself.

That would be from the people on the other skins on the old network. If you try to login it gives you an invalid password message.It would also appear that they moved the time back 3 hours and are now inching past that time as well.

<pocket3s> who is this 2bthebest guy?
<Janfor99> lol
<_2bthebest> hey 3s
<Janfor99> some guy who 'runs goot'

I didn't get mine until about an hour ago. I think Bob said they would be doing them a few at a time as someone had to verify information or something. Don't quote me on that. :club:

If you haven't received an e-mail from Poker Stars by morning you should send an e-mail to fcp@pokerstars.com with your FCP account name and let them know you haven't received one yet.

I received my email and filled it out. It says it will take up to 5 days to make the transfer. 5 days? Are they sending the money by burro?

Anyone had success with the transfer yet? I rec'd the email but it keeps telling me that the information I am providing is incorrect. The action was: Check, Check, re-check the info and still says it is invalid. Emailed support but no luck with the suggestion which was pretty much - "type in the information and it should work". Never thought of that one....

Hundreds of players have successfully completed the transfer so far.Remember that everything is case sensitive and that you have to provide the e-mail address that is registered to your FCP account.If you want me to let you know how the information appears in your FCP account send me a PM here in the forum.

Well Bob my transfer went fine. I wish I would have gotten an email about it all cause if there is one place I hate to play at it is Poker stars. Bad deals, bad beats, no immediate support staff. My points went from 4000 plus down to 1800. Wish I had had more money then I did on transfer cause I would have cashed out. You know, Im not one too cash out but..... lets just say playing at poker stars is worse then racing a horse with a chip in its knee and a bowed tendon. Im not a happy pirate but thats life. Been good the past year with you. Goodluck in the future.
You look farmiliar. Have I threatened you before?
