Due to the recent developments with the Everleaf network, I no longer feel safe keeping money on an online poker site. While I believe that Merge is safe, I'm not willing to risk my bankroll on this assumption. So I'll be withdrawing the majority of my roll. It's not worth it for me to potentially lose $800-$900 for a $5-$10/hr winrate, especially when there are live games in my area where I can win at $20-$25/hr or more, without the potential risk of the casino being shut down and me losing my bankroll. While I am optimistic about the future of online poker (in my uneducated opinion I believe we will have legalized/regulated online poker in the United States between 1 and 2 years), now is a bad time to have any money online.
