Re: Official iPoker Thread

Poker stars vs IPoker VIP?

Tried working this out but its too complicated for me, just wondering if a player that could earn 1 million points at PS as a Supernova Elite, would they earn more playing at IPoker if they got the same volume of games?

PS Supernova Elite would earn 105k while 955k points at IPoker earns 14k but IPoker points are earned much easier than PS.

I done a forum and Google search but no threads on this

anyone know the answer to this?

Re: Official iPoker Thread

if you're grinder then you can easily have 50% from Ipoker VIP CLUB.

Add rake races (public and from affiliate)
promotions etc and in longrun you can get even 90%+. I know personally some players (sng grinders), who wouldn't play with rb <100%.

So IPoker seems better vs PS, so why does everyone play on PS then?

Also English is not my first language sry but are you saying they wouldn't play unless they get 100 rakeback?

how are they getting 100%?

it's hard to say in one word which one is better. Pokerstars has better software, more players etc.

Many players choose to play in other networks, becaouse of higher rakeback. You must also remember that rake is less on Pokerstars.

To get 100%+ you have to win rake races. Sometimes it;s not so hard, especially when poker room made a mistake and put too much money in the prize pool

Well I was hoping there'd be clarification/confirmation regarding whether the rake cap will be reduced, or remain as it is, but it looks like it's the latter.

It actually works out more now since the rake goes from US to Euro for example SNGS $200 were $10 US rake now its €10 Euro which is about $16 US

Has it actually been released anywhere that rake caps increased?

So far I have only seen that the rake caps for cash games remained the same and imo for sng-s and mtt-s it´s not actually an increased rake cap if the buy-in is raised as well. More like playing a little higher.

If anybody has a link which states that rake caps have been increased, please share.

Yes, the rake structure for EUR and GBP tables is in place to support our already ongoing EUR and GBP tables. Rake CAPS will be kept the same as they are today.

What do they exactly mean? Does it stay the same in value or it stays the same while changing the currency?
Imo can be interpreted both ways atm.

the rake cap stays the same per currency
on € tables if it was €3 b4 it will be €3 now
on £ tables if it was £3 b4 it will be £3 now

if u only played € & £ tables b4, this change doesnt affect u

if u played a lot of $ tables b4, then ur effective rake has increased since that $3 rake cap is now €3~$4 or £3~$5

Re: Official iPoker Thread

even though the $3 rake cap is now €3 its still pretty much the same as the tables are now EURO meaning 200US is now ~300

I don´t know how such a simple thing has been managed to present in such a confusing way.

its not the same

consider a same size $100 pot (~€75, ~£60) on the 3 different tables

on the $ table, u pay $3 rake
on the € table, u pay ~$4 rake
on the £ table, u pay ~$5 rake

Re: Official iPoker Thread

is it normal that there r nearly 80% ratholers and midstackers if i would play fastfold-holdem nl5 ?

One thing to consider is that anyone on this network should have a decent RB scheme and you also earn higher RB on these higher raked pots.
