I really dislike the non-lobby and think it will have a huge negative effect on how many tables they get running.

Since it seems to be starting a lot of new games for players, maybe they could ask you how many players you want to start a new game, like some live card rooms do.
Idea seemed ok, but I just tried it, and I have to agree with most that it is not good. I have to guess and check which games are running and after getting seated at empty table after empty table, I gave up. This might be fine for more popular games.

poker is set up the same as table games. choose the type of game you want to play and the casino seats you.

Worst software update ever.

Aggravatingly tilting constantly scrolling thru $30/60 6-max, $20/40 6-max, $30/60 o8, $30/60 9-man trying to find a game that is going, having no clue if you're on a hunt that does or doesn't exist.

You pick the stakes table type and game and it auto seats you. There is no lobby to see if games are running. You have to get lucky and pick the right combo. For NL where games always run its no big deal but if people dont see limit games running they won'ttake the time to find them. It's going to kill off a bunch of games on the site.

If you could be a little more vague with your seating criteria it'd be ok, but when you have to click through 3 different windows to see if there's a game at a specific stake with a specific number of players it's incredibly annoying. Probably going to kill any of the games that aren't plentiful already.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD! let us gogogogo

I get that ignition doesn't want to be like ACR and have the who's who of Euro bumhunters waiting around to game start at like 30 tables (you'll seriously see that many tables w/ 1 player sitting in 5/10+ FL), but becoming ridiculous is totally another thing.

Just have a lobby, and don't open a second table at the stake unless the first table has 2+ active players if you want to mitigate bumhunting.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD! let us gogogogo

If you all as professionals find this recent software update frustrating, how much worse do you think the average recreational player feels about it?

4/19/2017 is the day that US friendly online poker died with a whimper. It's been a long time coming. Of course there some other great options out there. You can go with the 5% withdrawal fees and a $5 rake with a player pool of 20 unique players (dropping by the day as they ban winning regulars) on Merge, unplayable reg filled microstakes games on ACR, and of course the option to get cheated out of tens of thousands of imaginary dollars on the two lovely sites that all the cool kids play these days.

For the record, in 30 minutes of trying to sit in 400 and 600 NL last night on Ignition during prime time, I was seated with more than 2 other players exactly 0 times.

Update is bad, but I'd give Ignition a chance to self-correct if it finds this is decreasing traffic. Whether Ignition cares to monitor anything but NLHE and PLO is 50/50 at best, though.

Hah, if you want to change your luck, come play against me. I am down like 1000 BB in the past 9 months, it is pretty exciting. Either way, beer!

Yes, exactly. A good poker rate that you can't count on and can't book in advance is worthless. Well, to me anyway, given that I am usually there in April.

I haven't seen anything to this effect posted in the CAZ thread, but if true, it's a major improvement. I will ask when I'm there and see what they say.

The poker rate was $129 the last time I was there. No idea if it's still the same.

FYI, I'm paying $95 at a nearby place, but it's a 3.8/5 rating hotel, surely crappier in all ways. And I just noticed that it's $62/night if I had booked now. Should have checked yesterday when I could still cancel and rebook.

Cool kids still play mix. OFC is no longer in vogue.
You can get cheated in home games if they have RFID cards

They have new owners who are prob the ones that implemented this change, thinking one more dose of 'recreational-friendly' measures would make their formula just right.

It's always amusing to me how much a lot of these sites seem outraged that people try to win $ in a strategy game where better strategies are rewarded with $. Not to mention that most fish don't seem to mind playing guys that they know are better than they are live, as long as they're trying to keep things fun.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD! let us gogogogo

Don't feel like spamming the Stud forum for this but ACR Stud 8 $1/$2 w/ $0.15 ante, $0.40 BI, we're 8 handed.

4h brings in, Ts opens 2nd to act with another T showing behind, I raise [Ks3h]Kh, Ts calls

He catches Qc, I catch Qs.

I bet and he raises. Is this a three bet or a just call? Does it depend on whether villain is fishy or solid?

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD! let us gogogogo

If any of y'all still do wire xfers off ignition be sure to check your messages from ignition where it tells you how many euros or whatever they're sending you, and compare it to the balance it says in your bank statement that you received.

I just received one today that was 15 euros short of what their message said was being sent to me.

Contacted support, I'm sure nothing will come of it but who knows. 15 euros isn't a huge deal but I'm sure if they do this often it adds up to a nice bonus on these rogue payment processor's bottom line since i'm sure a ton of people don't ever notice.

Plus also a little suspicious about if they sent me the real amount of Euros I was owed based on the exchange rate... I know there are fluctuations and you never receive the exact amount you request when doing these wires, but I received a message in my inbox on the 21st saying my wire had been sent and to expect to receive it in the next 5-10 business days, and somehow I ran hot enough to have it show up in my bank account on the same day... for $9351 of the $9500 requested. This kind of short is common in the times you do have to wait that 5-10 business days because the exchange rate may actually change, but when it's same day my skepticism runs higher that they simply skimped on sending me an actual $9500 worth of euros.

In summary, #2017onlinepokerproblems.

Is it possible that they convert to Euros as soon as the money is withdrawn from your account and then send that amount whenever the wire transfer is sent? That would mean there is more time for the currency to fluctuate.
