Hello all,

@BadBeatLust: Thank you for your contribution. I have forward your remarks to our tournament manager.

@wsmp: This is the law. You have to enter the activation code to validate your account. If you don't enter your code, your account is permanently closed but you can still get your money back to your bank account and create a new one.

@PTLou: We asked to be in the MTT Community section. 2+2 accepted it before changing his mind.

@caustic1982: You had to earn 100,000 to 249,000 miles per year. Diamond 2 is a annual VIP statuses, on sliding 12-month basis.

Have a good day.

i just wanted to load up a couple of cash tables, so i can tell you their market is non existent anymore, i can get even 4 nl 50 tables running, the tables i do get running have a vpip of 17-19%, the tourney lobby is full tough.

they need to lower the rake or they will be busto soon, they also need a proper rb system

I am German and actually get my emails in German as well, though French would be no problem either.

Re: *** Official Winamax Series VIII Thread (Special Offers, Requests + Suggestions) ***

I have a problem with the way Winamax's client is behaving.

Tools - Options - Table - Multitabling is where it's at.
I have switched off the "Enable active table pop up" option.
However, for some reason software still pops up and steals focus from other applications (eg Notepad) when it's my turn to act.

What am I missing?

Is that option just for Winamax multitabling making them wait for each other, and will Winamax always steal focus from other applications, regardless of that setting?

And is it possible to set it up so that it doesn't do that at all?

If I win another 150 seat can it be used for re-entries in the main event?

Because a certain administrator (sheepishly raises hand) had a little too much eggnog...or something.

Fixed.

I have online banking and in your account somewhere there will be a page where you can see all the international banking numbers/identifiers and whatnot which they accepted (~ a year ago)

How do the annual VIP statuses work? Mine just got reset from Diamond ** to nothing even though I have earned about 150k miles in the last 12 months.

i think that Event 01 on Sunday 100Euro buyin 175.000$ Gtd should have blind levels increased at 20 minutes.

the rest of the schedule looks great.

Good move:Winamax players can change their nickname every 6 months

"French-regulated online poker room Winamax has added the facility to allow players to change their online screen names.

Players can make the change once every six months. A new setting in the user account section of the Winamax site allows a player to pick a new screen name.

..............."


http://pokerfuse.com/news/poker-room...-months-02-01/

I always liked Winamax and now much more.

Hi Dave,

not only do you start creating a promotion thread in the wrong forum section, but once it gets attention you suddenly disappear 2 weeks before the event starts:



This is really bad service especially when you try to promote your site and events.

Anyway, regarding this statement:

And then the letter gets at least 29 days to come and might take longer. For me it came at the last possible minute and I just got it fixed in time to not lose my funds (I tried opening an account on another .fr site and actually lost $ back then because they didn't send me the letter in time), and I know someone who I think actually got his account permaclosed just because the letter never arrived. So if you don't have an account and wish to play this series it's probably already too late unless you want to risk the letter not coming in time, although I guess it's a freeroll since if you lose who cares anyway.
If I'm not yet registered, can I open a new account though and play the events? Can you please elaborate on the whole registration process for EU citizens?

Thanks

They closed my original account because I wasn't quick enough to send docs in (they wouldn't accept one of my statements) but I opened a second account easily enough, got it verified and they transferred funds from the original account over.

About the flighted re-entry tournament of which there are a lot. Does this mean if you bust day 1A (after re-entry period is over) you can enter day 1B? Or can you just play one day 1 with re-entries.

Why do you rake rebuys and addons? Thats quite odd.

Dont see why you wont add any rebuys to your normal daily schedule then

I remember that French goverment tax like 2% of all poker tournaments prizepools (cash prob too). That's why the rake, same in Stars.fr.

I have been considering to open Winamax account. Are there good amount of solid MTTs both in NL Texas and Omaha Hi? How is the value in the tournament series?

Wish for year 2014: Get Omaha Hi-Lo tournaments (prob illegal in France right now) running. Would love to play it with French.

Low buyin tournaments have been pretty soft imo, and gurantees are high for a non networked site.
I really hope they get plo8 soon though.
They also run the occasional tournament with added bounties and the sunday surprise would be nice to win https://www.winamax.fr/en/sunday-surprise
