Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

So is there any way Global Poker can guarantee there isnt super user accounts? What about Tag-teaming tables? Or using a VPN and a virtual machine in conjunction with your real computer IP to double hand a table? What about Global Pokers's supposed "Sweepstakes model"... would you mind explaining how thats different from REAL poker probability? Would you mind explaining why VGW (Global Poker) doesnt call itself "Simulated poker"? (because thats what it is... its all fake... if you deny this then you must inherently describe to morons across America what the "sweepstakes model" is... but if you do that then you contradict yourself by claiming its not "simulated poker"). I hope to God real regulated online poker will be legal once again very soon. If you are considering Global Poker... STAY AWAY.

The straw men you are pushing over are running for their metaphorical lives. Also.... welcome back Matt, it has been a while since you posted.

Flops Seen is also broken, but Hands per hour seems to work. So 1 out of 3 ain't bad! Just kidding, yeah they both need fixed.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

My full hand history is not showing. It shows only about 19 hands? Has nothing to do with the calendar date, as there should be more than 19 hands. Anyone know?

How about table placement software like Stack and Tile?

I would reach out to Global reps and get an actual email or something from them so if you run into trouble you can point back to the email and say, "You told me I could"

I personally don't think it would be an issue, but then my opinion doesn't matter at all when it comes to you being able to get funds from the website. So trust in my opinion as much as you had paid for it.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

It seems like the new update is logging me out really fast when not actively playing. This sucks when I am playing mtts on multiple sites but have none on global active but am registered for ones in the near future. Because of bad structures this is going to happen a little too often.

I made another thread about this. It needs to be fixed. Shouldn't log you out while you're registered for tournaments.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

OK maybe I'm just stupid....

Breakfast epiphanies $150 hyper turbo

Blinds are 1000/2000 ante 200 I'm in BB... folds around to me and I only get the antes?? I tried replaying the hand to make sure I was right and it doesn't even show the SB's 1000 in the pot.

https://play.globalpoker.com/poker-c...4b05555e59dfa3

Edit: also took a screen shot of the dealer/chat/gameplay box where it said "ctrane wins 1000" after the hand

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

1. how likely am I to get deposits through with Canadian CCs? My CCs have never allowed deposits to gambling sites but apparently this sweepstakes method is different? Any suggestions besides using my normal day to day CC or does it not really matter?

2. What are withdraw methods? I see it used to be paypal but now that's removed. What are the available options and how can I set up for these prior to wanting a withdraw?

3. How much time bank are you given for each decision? is there an extended timebank option? limited use timebank etc?

4. is there a way to get my account/ID verified before depositing/withdrawing?

5. https://gyazo.com/88823cb84c64e9637457ef041f4e699c

what is the best deposit method of all these? sweeps cash is your bankroll correct? why is there also a free $xx.xx thing beside it as well? is it just a simple buy X gold coins and recieve X sweeps cash (real money) transaction?

6. How long do deposits take to clear and become available?

7. Are there any rakeback/bonus deals for playing/depositing etc?

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

1. no idea, not canadian. i've used a variety of different CCs for depositing in the states, and most go through without a problem. some of them i need to call the bank and confirm that it's me making the purchase because it gets flagged as fraud. mildly inconvenient, but not a big deal.

2. there's only one withdrawal method available, direct bank transfer via worldpay. when you request a withdrawal, global will ask you for a bank statement, ID, and to fill out information like wire transfer #. don't mix this up with routing # because that will cause you problems and delay receiving your money. as far as setting it up before withdrawing, e-mail global's customer support

3. timebank is very limited. i think it's 30 seconds at the most? not sure on the exact amount, but it's definitely short. there's also no auto timebank option, so you need to click to use your timebank when you need the extra time. it's pretty annoying, but it helps keep the mass multitabling grinders away, so that outweighs the negative imo.

4. don't know, e-mail customer support. i just took care of that when i did my first withdrawal.

5. yes, you buy gold coins and get sweeps cash equal to your gold coins purchase. so if you do the $1,000 purchase, you get $1,000 SC. you can use gold coins as play money and to buy avatars from the store. don't buy the $750 GC because there's no equivalent sweeps cash.

6. deposits are available instantly

7. no rakeback at all. occasionally global offers deposit bonuses. not sure if these are targeted or not. i got one during the eagle cup allowing me to get $15 SC for $10, big whoop

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I have a strong feeling that some of the regs at nl100+ are using huds. They are doing 10 tables plus and adjusting well. There is no way for me to prove it lol. I hope global poker can come up a way to combat this.

You hope there is a way for Global to combat the thing that possibly exists but you can't prove it and aren't sure if it does or doesn't exist?

Seems like a tall order to me.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I would like to know what measures Global Poker is implementing to make sure that people are not using HUD or if there is any. If their TOS states that no HUD is allowed, it is their responsibility to monitor it.

My guess is there is 100% chance that someone is using a HUD or other kind of software. I think the odds are pretty close to that name that they can catch them all. Security that detect HUD use online poker

Ugh, hit send....

The software that is used to detect illegal software is good, but not infallible. It's possible for people to mask software that's used, too. Sandboxie and other virtual system software can be a PIA for security systems.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Is there a way to get up with a stack larger than the initial max buy in, then sit down in another seat with a smaller stack? I saw someone do this, might have been a glitch.

How do you change seats?

Never seen this. You can change seats only by leaving the table and coming back afaik.
