Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

When you enter a rebuy tourney that is in break, you'll get a pop up window, that you have some minutes to add-on, but you can't. The button isn't there.


And if you press rebuy button while in a hand, the rebuy button turns into a "processing" field. Now if the add-on window pops up in that moment, the add on button won't be there after that hand. This happens a lot for me, when the "you cant rebuy if you have more chips..." window pops up after the add-on information.

What I would like to do is play most of my tours on 888 and a few on other sites, but that is impossible for me because stacked tables popup over each other. They should of course popup when needed action, but if theres already one needed action and a second underneath that also needs action it pops up over the first, causing me to missclick on the second tour if I click at the time of the popup. With many stacked tables its a nightmare! They should queue up like on any other pokersite.
Therefore im only playing 5 888tours at a time and 1 slot with stacked stars tables.
This is imo a MAJOR flaw in the software and hope ur aware of it and fix it asap!

No rewards for MTT players
MTT players have a hard time clearing reload bonuses, which you dont have anyway.
The VIP system is a joke for a MTT player, I have a very hard time getting past bronze playing 10+ tours 20days a month, which doesnt do me any good if I do.
my.888 poker leaderboard is useless.
What would be nice is a MTT leaderboard, guaranteeing x thousand $, 1-50 ish would get money.

SNGs would be in time instead of turns.

http://888poker.com/poker-promotions...r-leaderboard/
is this a new leaderboard in the works or the my.888 leaderboard? cant see the page for some reason.

Just my hopes for the near future...

Thanks, some good stuff to pass on.

I'm not sure when/if the leaderboard is prepared to go live. I'll check into it.

Thanks. Should be fixed in the next update which is around the corner.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

hate hate hate how i can be charged to play the JP game when i'm not even dealt into the hand.

I'm sure it makes you guys a bit of money but it will lose you more in players that get p*ssed off and leave the site (like me!)

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Hello all, and workers/representatives (or however it is spelled correctly :P) from 888/Pacific!

I find it very difficult to multitable on 888, I was just playing the push or fold TM tables. I timed out alot, it's just not those tables only also other cash tables as well.

So is there any software available, if it only has a FRAME option just like TN (Table Ninja www.tableninja.com). It probably would make a whole lot of difference, to keep an eye of which table needs action. Because play is sometimes very fast.

At one point there was a forum topic over at pokerstrategy.com where 888 asked feedback from players so they could improve the software! http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/t...threadid=54688

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

I would like to see more normal speed MTTSnGs. I'm digging the Nitros but there is such a huge luck factor. I would like to see more of the 20 and 40 seats at various buy-ins. The 40-seat is only offered at .88+.08 level, and 20-seat is only offered at $8+.88 (and up)... Is there anything you can do in the lower range ($2-4) without needing to play the Nitros?

The notes comments above were spot on. I really like you MTT structure, spot on... now add more cash (or gtd) tournies versus product give aways.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Wouldn't it be a good idea to remove the jackpot tables and make 25% of rake on all tables go to one massive jackpot? This would effectively lower the rake to the industry average ($4 x (100% - 25%) = $3) and, with the current player pool, create jackpot sizes like nowhere else so lots of fish would be attracted to play at 888.

Nothing is too much to ask. It's been passed along.

This is a great idea. Whilst i like the site, i don't play there as i have a hard time justifying paying the ridiculous rake. This would bring the fish out in droves and even i'd have to come back. Knowing that the higher than industry standard rake i am paying could net me a massive payday would be the cherry on top.

I have been playing some HUSNG lately.

at the $20 level, the standard length SNGs are 20+1, but the turbo's are 20+1.5. Why is that?

Is 888poker basically Pacific Poker? I played on Pacific Poker before 2006. I'm having trouble remembering my username/password though. Is there anyway for me to find my username?

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Hey 888 rep,

A few questions & suggestions for you.

1. Could you please post the effective rakeback you get at 888 through the current "loyalty program" for the different levels. Could you please post this in a manner people like me, microdonks, will understand easily. For example, if you rake $400 you'll get $60 back or whatever.
Also, the rake is quite high so a better than average reward program is expected.

2. The clearance rate of your bonuses is way too low IMO.

3. I'm timing out a lot when I play a few tourneys at the same time, could you change the way you alert the player when you have like 5 seconds left or something. The way it is at the moment I just don't notice unless I'm really keeping an eye on that table.

4. The last hand replayer feature is a great addition but it feels awkward comparing it with Full Tilt / Stars. I think you should improve its functionality.

5. I think you could add more Omaha 8 tourneys, gamblers love that game and you have a few of those among your customers. Also, any plans to add mixed games ?

6. I sent an e-mail to your support team a few days ago asking for a few hands I was missing and am still waiting. It seems that many people complain about your support team. If you want to take your company to the next level you should improve this area.

I think you have improved the overall look and feel of your site a lot in the last couple of years but it's a shame you don't push the improvement further in order to get the most of the ex Full Tilt players ( like me ).
