    Default Facebook are twunts.

    Got this message from them, this morning:

    Dear Sir,

    Your account will be disabled for breaking the rules in Facebook Texas Hold'em Poker ;

    Buying

    Selling

    Transferring

    If you didnt break the rules, please then to do your defense ;

    Otherwise your account will be closed.

    Thank You.
    Except I can't log into the ******* page to defend myself.

    Only thing I can think of is I lost 70 mill over two hands last night to the same guy, but that was genuine (And it hurt). Got beat all-in. twice, on a run to ace by a flush, and worse by an ace flush on my king flush.

    WTF?

    From the language used in the email and on that page I suspect it's a phishing scam.

    No, it's genuine. That was my first thought.

    But been researching it and all looks legit.

    I can still get into the poker app and they've taken my other 70 mill off me as well. Either that or someone hacked my account previously, and deliberately lost the rest ... hadn't considered that ...

    I thought that too. Can you still log on to Facebook? Might be worth changing your password if you can.
    Where are we going? And what’s with this hand basket?

    Yep, done that already. Like I said, that was my first thought.

    i think it's legit. I'm usually pretty savvy with these things.

    Yep.

    I had 160mill (Now appear to have 300k so a whole chunk has gone missing which I didn't lose, and now I'm suspicious of) ).

    Lost all-in on a flush on the flop with a k to a guy who had the ace flush, and again to the same guy a few hands later - had a run straight to a on 4th card, and a flush flopped on the river. Killed me both times.

    What's the point of all this "virtual" money anyway? Is it worth anything in the real world and if not then why get banned for something that isn't real?

    I can understand why you play it - for the fun - but I can't grasp why FB would think of it as being serious enough to ban people over. Actually I can't understand why anyone would pay to "buy/transfer" chips either.

    People buy chips for real cash, I think is the issue.

    Least going by the pretty regular stream of people jumping on tables and offering chips for sale ...

    Reasons, I dunno. Same reasons people spend real money on MMORPG characters, money and items. Kinda sad but it happens.

    All major poker sites let you play with pretend money if you're after a replacement. They're probably 10X better than a FB app too.
