Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

There a bunch of bugs but by far the worst is that the alert beep when you post a blind but not when it is your turn to act. It literally makes me insane and I see so many people time out despite the ridiculous 30 seconds given. Even the fish, umm, casual, net depositing, recreational, play for the fun of it players have to find this annoying. Please Blowada just fix this one time!

I'm the one who mentioned it and yes as of right now Holdem Indicator is the only HUD that works right now and yes once your game or session is over then you have to start over....so if your playing cash you better keep that table open. GL.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

Not sure if this has been posted in any of the threads. I asked Becky why they chose the .LV domain name. My question centered around wondering if Latvia is somehow out of reach of the US DOJ if they decide to go and seize domain names like they did on BF. I won't paste her message but she did say that "LV is universally associated with gambling and fun."

In addition, she linked this article discussing the name.

At least the software update makes more sense now, if their entire name brand is centered around the word "nonsense."

Wierd. I also don't like how they are bragging about how no one has jurisdiction over them. Doesn't make me exactly feel safe.

There was another article where they do admit the .lv is solely to make people think about las vegas. Which I guess makes sense, but for anyone who knows anything about domain names they are going to know its not las vegas.

My assumption is that that feel this "if your smart enough to know .lv is for latvia then we don't want you on our site because you have a brain"

Bovada playing for MAC platform

Hi, as of today I was made aware that Bovada does not run on MAC platforms. I was wondering if anyone knew how to access a Virtual PC or a program for a Microsoft emulator. Thanks!

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

The sounds in Bovada really piss me off. So I tried going into the C:\bovada\resources\
sounds folder and deleting the offending wave files

well guess what When I rerun bovada it reconstructs those files; the problem is i only want 2 hear the 'my sound' turn - nothing else. and bovada onhy lets you turn it all on or all off - no 'granularity'

a way around this?

you cant delete them while the program is running winxp wont let u

Anyone care about the holiday promo they are running? It's damn near sad, $30 whopping bucks, but the freeroll payout seems decent. $150 tourney ticket for top 25 places.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

the current holiday promo is actually really sweet. the freeroll gives out 25 seats for 10 days ( 250 seats) and its a fairly easy $60 bonus if you do the $30 twice. $ in your account , no bonus clearing

I would be fine with Bovada's software IF THE DAMN CHECK/FOLD BUTTON WOULD WORK AND NOT STILL POP UP THE TABLE AND MAKE YOU CLICK FOLD.

I can't believe this hasn't been fixed yet!

Why are you surprised this hasn't been fixed yet? Are you new to Bodog? They had obvious bugs going back 4-5 years that they never ever fixed and for years blamed people's firewalls and internet connections. They still have major security holes that they flat out lied about fixing.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

Can we have a seperate rigger thread for bovada? Under the circumstances I think it may be a good idea. So far what I am seeing in the MTTs is that something very very funny is going on. many have pointed out the new format enables the site to use superusers undetected. Just wondering if others have noticed the cards and plays seeming very suspicious. Plus, they may have holes in software that enable hackers to see hole and future community cards.

Normally I'd be the first to gently berate you and refer you to the main rigger thread, but I've been having the worst 3 card dead weeks of my MTT life on Bovada, so I'm a bit weak right now, meaning I'm only 99.5% sure there's nothing funny going on, because lolsamplesize.

Any regs out there still binking away on the MTTs? Say the word and I'll be back to 100% again.
