Hey buddy. Welcome to Ignition. While a HUD won't be beneficial in hoarding stats on players long-term, it's still useful to use in my opinion. If you're sitting down playing four tables at once, it will be quite hard to remember how aggressive everyone is playing unless you plan on taking a lot of notes. After a good amount of hands (I go by about 40 or so), you get a decent idea of how many hands a person will raise, limp, whatever. So yeah, a HUD is still useful. Not to mention it can track your own progress long-term. I would recommend PT4 with the ignition card catcher.

Also, Ignition has a pretty soft player field. I was just playing during my lunch break for about an hour. Caught KK in the SB. Button raised, I 3bet, he flatted. I barreled all three streets. He called me down the entire way with AQ (btw there was no ace or queen on the board.). 3bet a different dude with AQ from the blinds. He flatted with 10/2s on the button. It's insane at the play on Ignition. Can be quite tilting when a complete moron like that actually hits something and wins the pot. Keep your cool and grind on.

As for ACR, a lot of rakeback pros on there and a lot of good regs that make a living exploiting you by using their HUD. It's a completely different ballgame on there. It can be quite profitable if you know how to exploit the regs yourself. If you don't, stick to Ignition. I would say that the higher BB/100 you will get on Ignition outweighs the 27% rakeback + smaller BB/100 on ACR.

Good luck buddy.
HUDs are against TOS for Ignition. Using a HUD is cheating.

*yawn* so is downloading hands from third party websites as is sharing databases with other players yet everyone and their mother does that on Stars and other sites. Yet nobody ever seems to get banned for that stuff, do they? Doing that is far more nefarious than running a HUD on Ignition. How many people have been banned for running a HUD on Ignition in spite of tons of people doing so?

So has anyone noticed any difference between Bovada and Ignition? Everything seems exactly the same on Ignition as it was on Bovada, except the way the tables come up initially with the three blinking loading indicators.. Is it just me or is it basically Bovada with a new name?

Is it? I didn't think that was clearly stated anywhere, but I don't play on the site, so I'm not sure - I just remember it being a point of debate, with people having been given a variety of answers from CS.

TBH, I'd be kind of surprised if it was explicitly forbidden. We know that it's a difficult ban to enforce 100% of the time, but making the site anonymous removes most of the benefits of playing with a HUD, so why bother with a ban?

He didn't ask whether it was cheating or not. He asked whether it's beneficial or not, so I gave my two cents.

Does anyone know how to get to a higher level than the basic customer service for Ignition that you encounter via e-mail?

Thanks

You'll get VIP customer support once you've reset your modem and uninstalled / reinstalled the poker software 50 times each. If for some reason that doesn't work, try resubmitting your browser info a few more times.

Yeah, that's what I found as well. If he has no other TOS information than that, he's definitely incorrect.

Re: *** Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread *** [For lag-fixes see posts 34088 and 36179]

PLEASE HELP!

I was tilted and played single deck blackjack with $25 and ran it up to $2k. However, I apparently had a casino bonus that I didn't know about and all my winnings went to my bonus account. I need to do the rollover.

This is what it's telling me I have to do


Does this mean I have to lose $1k in the casino? Because I've been trying to play non bonus games thinking it was just that you need to wager $1k but my bonus progress isn't moving. It's still at .4251%. I have only $150 in my account. What the hell do I do?
I literally thought I had just won 2k and then found out it all went to my bonus. Any advice?

rich is a sad little man, but he might be right, i think a few pages back there was someone who sent a screenshot of an error or something to cs with hold'em indicator active on the tables, and they warned him it was against the rules

Is there any point to using the bonuses? It seems like I have to spend my money for casino only games, and the money I get back is for casino only. The site is really confusing with how they describe each bonus? Can anybody tell me if the bonuses are worth anything for poker money?

Wait a minute; wait a minute. Ignition is always flogging us to try the casino isn't it? Maybe they also flog sports betters to try poker. Make business sense.
