no bots allowed in here; the heads up thread

I've definitely done my share of gamestarting over the years at small stakes online limit holdem. I've not studied the famous bot Cepheus much, not in over a year, and I think there's still room for exploitive profits at heads up limit holdem, depending on rake of course.

Because of the rake problem, playing heads up at a 2 max table just doesn't make sense, which is why you don't see the format spread often. However, I've been playing some 2% rake heads up sit n go games recently, perhaps even vs some of you.

So it begins.

They will say things like "good luck building your bot." and "you're a sitebot." etc. Don't let it get you down. Some will refuse to play you if you're too good. I think these players are the ones that will never make it in the long run. Gamestarting yet refusing to play is just about the lamest behavior I've seen in all of my online pokering.

Some people are just jerks, but let's leave them out of the equation. Can you see why someone might not want to game start with someone they think is decent at poker?

Yes I see why Doug, but I still think it's pretty lame to sit an empty table only to sit out when I join.

I've gamestarted on PokerStars, FullTilt, UltimateBet, Most of the WPN skins, swcpoker, carbonpoker, and probably some that I'm forgetting.

I discovered the 2% rake husng on swcpoker, which is quite reasonable imo.

My pet hate: seeing a head-up game at a 6max table, sitting in, and one of the two players quits their big blind.

Same as being buttoned by a game starter.

Why the f hasn't any software addressed these issues? A complete fix may be tough, but so many ways to at least improve on the situation.

Re: no bots allowed in here; the heads up thread

If I had a nickel for every time I've been buttoned? lol.

I've discussed potential fixes with other players, such as a minimum number of hand requirement. Also, I think this is relevant:
