I calculated the final numbers and started sending payments via PP F&F, but after sending to seven of the backers on the 8th PP gave me a pop-up saying "this method of funding isn't available" (I was using my PP balance, which still has $$$ in it) and gave me options to use my balance, my bank or my CC...........all with added fees, lol

So some of you have received your payouts but I still have a good chunk of you left to do. I googled the issue and someone else encountered it after 10 transactions in a row, and found customer service to be zero help in resolving it, so it may take 24-48 hours before I can continue sending payouts but will try again tomorrow and try to space them out throughout the day if it's letting me do them so it doesn't trigger a security issue because of the volume of transactions.

Thanks again to everyone for supporting me by backing or rooting along in this thread. I really feel like that blunder deep in the PLO event was the one that could've been and made this whole series profitable. Still kicking myself over that one. I'm exhausted from the grind of all these tournaments, but it was a great experience and we made some final tables and some near misses.

I'll be back in the mean streets of PLO cash games at the end of the week.

You gonna let us 2.5ers press to your cash game?

Cash games are difficult to sell because you have to take my word on the results, whereas a tournament there is proof of the buyin and results

Plus, tourneys offer the possibility of a big return. Cash games would just be me cutting my hourly rate, unless I was playing higher stakes on a live stream

Is this when trying to one of the Canadian contributors? PayPal charges a fee for international transfers.

Please take any fee out of my amount for my transaction please if charged.

Yup, Grant being outside the U.S. resulted in the fee, I was able to start paying others without the fee. I sent to everyone except the following:

@Jonesey07
@moose
@SixSpeedFury
@skylines
@Suited Connector
Anonymous
@Schmendr1ck

I had to initiate a transfer from my bank account to my paypal for those (didn't want to make 7 transactions and have my bank freak out on me) As soon as the money hits my PP I'll send to the remaining backers.

If anyone is not on this remaining list and didn't receive a payment from me please reach out, but I believe the above is all that remains to pay.
