Lee Jones said in his thread they weren't going to do anything to help any specific games, contrary to what we were told after the first player meeting.
Ratholing, shortstacking are not issues that have been brought up at the player meeting in January where Hood represented the player community, it wasn't an issue then and it's not an issue now afaik.
Bumhunting of weak/new players is an issue but due to the fact that the games are getting tougher, player pool getting smaller and rake remaining unfeasibly high, the only way to dig out a decent winrate is to seek these players out so frankly I would leave that alone too.
This thread is kinda irritating because much time and effort has gone into many other threads about limit holdem and what would help the games, and then Stars makes this post which doesn't address any concerns from LHE players.
How about going back and looking at the outcome from the players meeting in January in which many assurances were made about promos / support for limit holdem and acting on the words given to our player rep.
LHE players pay a hefty amount of rake in comparison to the rest of the player pool. The rake remains way too high especially at the micro/low limit levels.
I don't think this has been brought up to date but I think it needs to be mentioned. Limit holdem players pay more rake than No Limit players yet No Limit players get the benefits of increased multipliers at the micro limits namely NL2 x10, NL5 x 8.5 , NL10 x7. How about you started to offer greater incentives along these lines to the lower limit guys?.
