Re: Official iPoker Thread

They have gotten rid of US dollars and have gone completely to Euros.
On HU sit and goes they have followed the PokerStars example, charge less on
Super Turbos and more for Turbos and even more for regular. Basically
they want you to play the quicker ones so ur back on the tables.

Worst part is there has been a price hike , before you paid 25 cents for 5 dollar
and 50 cents for 10 dollar games, now its .35 euros and .60 euros .

Being in Canada it doesnt work out good for me, if i play a 5 dollar and i lose i will lose 7 and change and if i win i get back around 6.

And to top it off its a ghost town if your in EST in the PM hours cause all the Euros are in bed.
Wont be playing here too much longer even though there are lots of fish.

Re: Official iPoker Thread

iPoker used to be a good network a few years ago when they got rid of the short stackers. It changed in a year or so though. The new software launched in 2010 was a total flop. It was slower and less practical than the previous one, even if it had rebuy. It simply doesn't offer you the same "feel" as the old one.

While Stars has kept dropping the rake, iPoker pulled a few cents each time people refill their stack to 100. In today's online poke, you just don't charge 10% rake for turbo/super turbo SNG. There's no reason whatsoever to play SNGs in iPoker because you get a direct 50% rakeback only from playing the same tourneys in Stars because of the lower rake.

They split the network. They never did anything about the bot problem. They didn't do anything that was needed to keep the network alive. I tried playing there a bit recently but I struggled to find more than 2 tables of NL50 with flop% higher than 10%. That's pathetic compared to how many tables there used to be.

Heads up is 100% bumhunting. The fish don't bother playing the anon tables. There are usually 40 tables opened by regs, while there's action in 1-2 of them. The rest are just waiting for the fish and refusing to play anyone with half a brain.

The network has killed itself. Just like Party, it's poorly run and the short-term greed of the owners has made it an unworthy choice for any serious player.

games are dead but at euro evening times? i think all euro sites are better during any other time, maybe counting out some tournaments.

It appears their HU tables for now are euros up to NL100.

Higher than that it's still dollars only. It also appears they have no anonymous HU tables higher than NL100?

From what I have heard you won't get switched over automatically but can apply to be moved to a Euro account. That was the reply I got from Titan though, not sure if it applies for all other skins as well.

Currently unable to login to coral poker with the error message: 'we are sorry, but we cannot currently accept real money bets from your geographical location.' Anyone else get this for no reason? (I'm from the UK).

Re: Official iPoker Thread

hu tables should be pooled and ring games being table starters. leave the ring games for ring game players. There should be a limitation of how much of ones play can be hu at ring tables. dont ruin ring action by hu bumhunting them.

Re: Official iPoker Thread

Im having serious issues with this software.
Everytime a tournament loads it tells me im dissconnected , sometimes it reconnects quickly but today it booted me out and i had to log back in which took forever and i lost half my stack.
Also the deal of the cards lags and its slow to make bets. I tried increasing my virtual memory but that did nothing, i have no clue whats going on, i played on many sites and never had these software issues.
Any help as to what i can do would be appreciated and is anyone else having
these problems ?

THanks

Sometimes you can fix this with an uninstall/install

Re: Official iPoker Thread

What happened, all cash games replaced by tournaments? Damn, just when it was starting to look good, though there has been a lack in actions since the change to euros. Cant even get to the game. Still says 4k players.

Whats next, ongame, prima? Boss had no action the last i looked and acr software didnt download. Ongame suffers during most of the time and i dont like to play there. Prima maybe, just dont like their software so i suppose not but in theory could be the next ipoker. Stars is lacking as rb and somewhat the quality of games. ftp has no rb. Some bitcoin sites but i dont think for me at this time. Merge rb low. Revolution action often low or and cashout issues. Pretty boring for me to play stars. 888 no rb.
