Black Friday aftermath

I don’t know where I’m going from here. In reality I’m not affected to a great degree. I’m not in the US so I can still play on both Stars and Tilt. I’ve even requested a cashout of most of my Stars account, via mail rather than courier because I’m never home to receive a couriered item. This meant that my cashout had to be less than $1,000 which means that I’m leaving more in my account than I wanted. Atm I have close to $200 still there and likely have some coming back at some point from a pooled staking arrangement. I’ll have to wait for it to arrive, but I have previous positive experience to base some hope on.

Tilt is more of an issue. Atm Tilt displays a withdrawal screen but none of the options work for me. My roll there is not very big but I’d still like to get most of it out. Just have to sit and wait, but still it’s a much better situation than my US friends.

So in theory all that needs change is that I play against a smaller player pool. But that’s not the way I’m reacting. By pulling out a large portion of my bankrolls I’m restricting my playing. Obviously with $200 I can’t play $100 tables anymore. I don’t know if I can even play more than 4 tables of $25nl anymore. Bankroll management shifts to gambling; the money that I have online I don’t want to lose, but at the same time it’s so small that the 20-1 or 30-1 rules don’t apply.
