PLus say you were drunk when you did it. And if they harrass you, have your Mom call and ask why they're letting a 14-year-old play poker on their website

FYI, that number is basically 2^32 cents, so its possible if you win anything, it will roll over to 0.

As a programmer, I'm embarrassed to say I didn't notice that. Good eye.

Obviously partypoker would be able to track everything you did with the money. cashing out will be denied and chipdumping would get your friend in trouble. The only thing you could do however is go sit at a highstakes table, alerting a friend who can play that game to come sit on that table to, and then just playing as a total retard to EVERYONE on that table. obvioulsy you tell your friend what you have before going allin with him so he always have the best of it, but you gotta make sure to lose about as much to at least 4-6 other players at that table. Then Party can conclude you just abused the money you found. They can't take the mone away from the winning players, and they cant do [censored] to yourself cause you have $0 in your account anyway.

Thats what I would do anyway

Actually, it is 2^32 - 1 cents. If the OP had won $0.01
before contacting PartyPoker, his balance might become
zero. [ I don't think anyone can have a negative balance,
right? ]

so THAT'S how you get 43,000,000 dollars folks!!

bet 1 cent more than your entire roll.
LOSE.
then you'll have -1 cent in your account,
which party figures is 43,000,000.

Someone try this and see if it works.

( i suppose it'll also work if you transfer
your entire roll + 1 cent to a buddy.
then you'll have -1 cent in your account,
party thinks it's 43,000,000. profit. )

Now we just have to figure out how to bet your roll+1c, which is not allowed by software afaik.
Also, in theory, one could have a roll of 43M on party, join a limit table, win a pot, and his roll becomes 0 again? Unlikely scenario, but could be done if someone really put an effort into it?
