I thought I'd leave it and see if it resolved itself, and so I fired up another one. Played the next one OK but the stuck one was still there unplayed nearly ten minutes later. I don't believe you were struggling for traffic in a brand new $1 SNG, so before I unregged I took a screen shot, if it helps you see anything and solve the glitch



You'll be able to use my screen name to check the time stamps from my playing history, try looking around 4am server time this morning (2nd Oct).


This isn't the first time it happened to me either, it's the second time. If you check back through my history for yesterday, or maybe Tuesday evening, I can't remember which, you'll find where I unregged another one of these for exactly the same reason.

Cheers
Hello,

This is a known problem that usually happens when you buy into two or more Spin & Gos using T$s (it may happen at other times too).

We do have a fix, and this will be implemented during today's restart.

If the issue persists after the restart, please let me know.

Thanks,
Baard

Re: ** Official Spin and Go's Discussion Thread **

1) I cannot take notes, neither by right clicking the guy, nor by chosing notes in tabs bottom left...

2) Is there a way to tell PT4 use standard pt4 tournament HUD and to fire CoffeeHud when you are down to two players. If that's possible, in that particular case does coffeehud understand that it needs to take into account only hands that were played heads up?

I only bought into one (at the time it hung up) and I didn't use T$, just normal cash balance

An easy fix is writing notes in the PT4 HUD instead.

PT4 itself can't do it automatically. Switch between HUD profiles during the game manually (in the green chip menu) or via some hotkey software.

By default, no, but it's easy to set filtering by the number of remaining players at the table in Hud -> Edit Hud Options -> General. Mind however that it will affect all other types of tourneys too (which is not bad).

I think that this can happen if any one of the three players uses T$ to enter a spin and go, does not have to have been you. They're supposed to be fixing it today anyway.

Re: ** Official Spin and Go's Discussion Thread **

How comes in the 'STT section, you guys talked about liquidity in regards to implementing other requested games. But you guys implement these?

I don't really need an answer, but I'd love to just hear your contradiction.

Lower the rake %, it's absurdly high.

And since you are hurting the liquidity of all the other available games, rake needs lowered there as well..

Spin n gos need deal making as well. Why not offer deals on all tables to be honest. It's much more practical. Honestly wont slow the games down much and may even speed them up.

PT4 now tracks these games as "STT (3max) Hyper Turbo".

I agree, imo rake for online games is way too high in general. It's all automated ffs. You will still be making enough money with lower rakes PS!

Re: ** Official Spin and Go's Discussion Thread **

Was watching a 36k payout and a MOD gets on to say that deal making is possible even though it clearly says it's not on the table and even gives 2 ways to make a deal through the info tab and e-mailing "urgent". Players start stalling and talking about a deal and it seems to ruin the whole experience and after a little while the same MOD comes back on to say that no deals are possible LOL. I'm a little baffled as to the coordination of support staff with these. If you decide deal making is off then shouldn't everybody be coordinated on that?

IMO just split the prize pools more evenly at the highest levels and do like a 60/30/10 payout and no deals and that solves it.

On .FR there are no 2nd and 3rd place prizes at the highest levels and rake is 7% and they don't count for the hypermania promotion which basically makes these unplayable.

In b4 this game becomes a swapfest and every reg has 1% of himself in big spins to reduce variance.

I'm hoping that the traffic for these dies once recreational players realise that its no fun getting a 2x multipleir and loosing a majority of the time... Could also have the adverse effect and keep them hooked waiting for a big jackpot

Agree. Although it is poss, as dudemanuva says, that rec players might give them a go but after 5 - 10 2x multipliers in a row they feel a bit ripped off or disillusioned. Unlikely tho, the traffic prob will fall off a bit after the initial interest, but prob not all that much.

Has there been a noticeable reduction in traffic in med - high HUSNGs? (I mean hypers $60+)

Very agreed. I'm not as negative about these games as many other posters here. But **** this degen vibe. Really harshes my buzz.

Thank god the timebanks are so small in these. Can you imagine regs 20 tabling and using 1 minute timebanks just to be an *******?

Note: I don't play normal hypers, so I don't know what the TBs look like in those.

Re: ** Official Spin and Go's Discussion Thread **

exactly the same

I dont understand why the top prizes need to be so big. ITs not like a 6k top prize wouldnt get as much players, prizes get to more players reg/fish and its not such a bizarre system.

Also hate the fact that blind lobbies are there, seems like they forced everything to make them unplayable for a serious player

also how to turn off the sound of the spinning
