Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

Why are there so many PLO games running that aren't double agent tables? Kinda frustrating, everyone should be playing mainly those tables. Maybe it's people on other skins starting games and then they fill.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

You probably answered your own question. Or maybe people on Lock start the regular tables cuz they fill quicker. The holdem games I play are dead since the promo started. Games higher and lower seem ok though but not many double agent tables running at those stakes.

Or 8500 point which I have nfi why it's an option since its clearly worse than the other two.
Even a bad hoody is worth more that $25 so I'd go with the hundo plus hoody.

I would hate for my traffic on other skins to suffer because all the action from lock goes to 2 lock players sitting each other on the Double Agent tables. You can be sure regs will have those lobbies whenever they're around, and why would anyone turn down free money to play on regular versions?

Not a bad idea, but I think the implementation is really flawed, especially for husngs where a number of the regs are playing on Lock. This unbalances the game for players on other skins.
Are you allowed to have an account on multiple skins (for Revolution)? Thought you were only supposed to have 1 account per network....

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

You can have multiple accounts, just only one Rakeback account on the Revolution network, afaik. Why these stupid rules exist, God knows.

Pretty sure you can have more than one rakeback account. I have rakeback accounts on cake and juicy stakes both with thenuts.com.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

Alright, must be an old Cake rule they changed once Lock took over?

I had a Juicy account, tryed to log onto it again because of a Raketherake Thanksgiving promotion, turned out the account was closed due to "rakeback/deposit bonus abuse" what the **** IS that even? I simply didn't get it. Better yet, i never even deposited at Juicy. I just figured they have some mongoloids working there at their support but maybe someone can enlighten me.

Do these bonuses have an expiration date?

Its just a generic message alluding to the fact that its a second rakeback account.

To prevent poaching, the rule helps stop rooms canabalizing each other. Its actually really effective.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

I just don't get it, though.. why shouldn't or wouldn't i be able to be free to choose where i play as a customer?

Furthermore.. bonus/rakeback abuse. It's like some sites make it sound like bonuses and rakeback are money GIVEN to their players (in Lock's case it actually IS for your top rakers (100+%) but THAT ASIDE) Rakeback isn't GIVING money, it's TAKING LESS. Sorry but that's just how i see it.

Why wouldn't a site, or a network, preffere their customers to use a bonus code extra on another skin, and have that person ACTUALLY PLAY on that skin and actually _PAY_ you money, rather than.. let's say.. have this person play at the COMPETITION instead?

just truely baffling to me, sorry, i've seen these rules aswell on the Merge network and honestly it just pisses customers off and deters them from playing on skins they can't have rakeback on at all.

Recent case for me like a week ago. I mail Carbon poker and say "can you put me back on Rakeback program because i was VIP player (Ether) but lost it all because i didn't play in a long time". Support reply: "no, we can't, because you have RB on another skin"

My reply: "ok then i don't play on your site at all and continue playing on Lock only"

It's that simple, right? To which they replied by the way "You are now on the Rakeback program" funnily enough.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

double agent thing is flawed

I play 100% of my action at the double agent tables but am only level 7 for that while I'm level 10 on the regular one.

Any comment shane?
