Online poker needs a new decent pokerroom

Amaya is not a kid, they know that they are in a market alone without a single decent competition, so they can do whatever they want, people are not just going to stop playing.

The only thing that can save online poker from a collapse is a new company with a decent pokerroom, so we will have competition again between rooms and give more back to the players (rb, sponsor, etc). but what are the chances? close to none?

Re: Online poker needs a new decent pokerroom

Close to none suggests it actually is something different than none for now. That is where your assumptions start to falter. At least you did not suggest the future (due to these changes) is in Bitcoins...

I agree with your assessment that Amaya is not a young human or a young goat.

Just get everyone to start playing at Carbon poker. Americans can play there, and so can the rest of the world (mostly), and more people would bring in more money, and maybe their client would be better.

I know what you mean but I am not sure if we can call them a decent room

The only thing that would stop Amaya's grip on competition is the re-opening / legalization of online poker in USA.

Re: Online poker needs a new decent pokerroom

The usa players have stopped playing online, and they are risky sites. Other than that i would recommend intertopspoker and juicy poker from revolution networks, maybe only french players banned, has good rb and more from affiliates. Then if epn stops being a beta, it has potential but its old already and the same risk w fbi, though itops had eu domain in case it helps any. But itts not fill6ng with players until cake pays out if even then, but potential is great ad open for all and alternatives all suck.

2+2 poker ftw.

Or do anything on kickstarter, I dunno. Hasn't Scheinberg enough money to pay someone for opening up a new room?

Carbon has no incentive for players to play there.

Re: Online poker needs a new decent pokerroom

Make an idea thread -> build a management team -> figure out which ideas are redeemable and which arent -> KICKSTARTER -> make a thread about kickstarter -> everybody support it (with some reward system for biggest donators, or something) -> put it it motion -> overpower PS
