Re: Jackpot Poker!

Should be about 40k $10s to make the 100k VIP level. (Points only acrue on 75% of the rake since 25% goes into the Sit&Crush leaderboard).

WPN rep said somewhere in the forum that they'd not be working initially and he needs to do some more work on them. He didn't give a timeframe, so I'd give it a few months/years and maybe it'll work. It's probably low on their list like many other important things.

"may not be setup..."

I've yet to research that. I'll be going through it over the next few days.

You can see cEV in HM2. Just add the "Overall" report and click the button circled below. Also works on other reports.

Yes. Stay tuned.

We need to ensure stability before we introduce more fun

Sometimes my balance isn't being reported properly in the registration window for the Jackpot Poker SNGs but at least it's correct in the main lobby which is the one that really matters.

Re: Jackpot Poker!

Regarding traffic, I played $2 and $10s all morning with a max wait of about 20 seconds. Impressed with traffic especially for that time of day.

Only thing I noticed was that almost every time the $10s was always a $20 table except for one $40. When I 4 tabled the $2, there was always one that was $8 or $12.

These are fun, especially waiting to see what multiplier you will get. It sucks though when you are playing for the minimum because obv you have to beat 2 ppl to get a heads up prize

Good reviews so far? Kind of interested to see if these fizzle out

Lol, it's a new format, of course it's not supported on the second day of its existence. Send HHs to the PT4 team in a support ticket, please, and they'll add it soon due to your collaboration. (That's if HHs are saved at all at this early point.) Meanwhile, enjoy the golden days of HUDlessness

It's called variance The frequencies are the same for both BI levels in the long run.

Re: Jackpot Poker!

Any sort of ETA on when higher buyins will be added? I would love to have at least $30 games for these. Seems like there's plenty of traffic so far

Re: Jackpot Poker!

I'll definitely jump into the 30s if they appear, I'm short of good opportunities to make my BR work properly and they'll be a new one!

If you grind $2 games and are able to play 4546 games a month (3-4-tabling), you'll be able to sustain Major (=Goldstar), and again, you'll get 19.6% from exchange to tourney bucks plus 7%-ish from Medals of Achievement (=Stellar Rewards), i.e. about the same as if you were on RB. As you'd like to move up to the $10s soon (a $2K+ roll is needed ideally), and you can switch the programs only once, I advise to remain on EB. Even if you don't play that much right now, the gain you'll get from hitting General next year offsets the small loss you'll suffer if you remain a Captain (=Silverstar) or Major throughout this year.
awesome response man, thanks a ton.

this is not bad at all for 1 day considering no other format (to my knowledge) could someone have grinded 150+ games in 1 day

If it's one of the top 3 tiers, the software will ask players if they want to chop with a "deal option which must be approved by each player: 1st: 40%, 2nd: 30% and 3rd: 30%". So you split 90% and play for the 10%.

I was a bit off with the required numbers of games because I didn't take into account that points/rakeback are given only for 75% of the tourney fee (the part that doesn't go into Sit and Crush) and you should multiply them by 1.33 to get the right numbers (i.e. ~6K $2 tourneys a month for Major and ~40K $10 tourneys a year for General, as Max Cut has pointed out, thanks to him for the correction), but my other conclusions are still valid because apparently the traffic is sufficient for smooth multitabling.
