Glad to see someone else having this issue. Are you using Chrome? I may try in Internet Explorer and see if that works.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

How does the SC translate to real money? Is it a 1:1 ratio? Like if I have 100 SC, is that worth $100 or at least $100 in gift cards or something?

I have no intention of withdrawing soon but just wondering how much my little bit is worth.

1 SC = $1

100 SC = $100

No gift cards.

I seen him make a weird comment on here after someone brought him up before. Anyways just a warning dont play with him. If you do see for yourself. I'm not saying global is rigged or whatever but there is a definite difference between cash and tourneys. I've won a eagle cup tourney and its seems like a legit RNG. But when you play cash you better hope your on the right side of the obvious cooler after cooler and your almost always on the wrong side against CBT123. Take this as it is or whatever. Or play him and you will see his wierd exploitive style that always ends in him coolering you.
I'm going to have to back you on this big time. I've been playing on Global for over a year. Overall experience is great. Could use a little bit larger player pool of course but there are some fishies which I won't name , buyins are all quick and successful and the cashouts are consistent. There are some annoyances with the software for example it doesn't tell you what table you're playing on on the screen anywhere and you have to click between tables on your phone as opposed to auto switching when its your action. I saw someone made a comment about getting rid of the full ring Omaha games... and then they did... bastard.

Anyways, most importantly - CBT123. Interestingly enough, I've had a similar experience where I've managed to steer clear of him and run decently playing super cautious and nutted against him. But he does clean out tables OVER AND OVER AND OVER. This dude scoops more multi way all in pots than I've ever seen BY FAR. NOT EVEN CLOSE. If you are all in vs him and it's multiway, kiss those chippies bye bye. I wish someone would do the same win rate analysis for him as was done with Potripper and Mike Postle.

I once tried out the 5/10 while he was there and people were commenting about how he's a bot and he actually makes a joke confirming he's a bot.... SO THEN, super fishy... he immediately randomly stacks off 4 $1000 buy ins in a row playing like nutjob (never seen him do anything like this before or since). Trying to get us off his trail much? It really didn't make sense from the play I had seen from him. There needs to be an investigation.

CTB is most certainly not a bot.

You know him personally Smitty? Any other details to add? Just an omaha destroyer incapable of losing sessions and constantly clearing tables?

"Incapable of losing sessions and constantly clearing tables" - so I'm assuming you watch all his tables/sessions for some reason. Plenty of times I've played with him and he's lost (presumably as guess what neither you nor I know for sure). What's your sn btw?

He also plays a style that isn't similar to any bot I've played with before. Not going to go into it further, but if you're going to throw around a player being a bot you're going to need more than "Incapable of losing sessions and constantly clearing tables" as you can't even provide evidence.

Do you think bots don't have losing sessions?

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

10-27-2018: Care to respond to the improvement thread for an issue I brought up months ago about heads up play issues with the button? Been confirmed that the site does not pay back sbs if a player sits out heads up as well. You said that it was with your development team...should be an easy fix.

Any fix or are your developers still trying to figure out how blind placement works in poker?

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I'm having an issue where the "resize and tile" button doesn't work when I'm in pro-mode (pop-out tables); it only works when the tables open in the same window. Tried it on both Chrome and Firefox. I'd just disable pro-mode but then there's the note-taking bug that was mentioned a few posts ago. Anyone else experiencing this? Quite annoying to have to manually re-size every table that I open.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

^^^ Figured this one out. It's caused by having the "new felt" enabled as a beta tester (even though it's only for GC games, having it checked seems to effect the SC games as well). I unchecked it, and now I can resize tables as normal. Yet another reason to dislike the new tables.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

This is a random cash game question but if you run a stack up from 100 BB to lets just say 300 BB and then leave. How much time has to pass before you are allowed to sit back down at that table with 100 BB? Does anyone have any idea?

I think until table shuts down ( if all people leave it will get shut down after x minutes I think )

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

i just had the loading bar then a message about click here to reload and got nothing, was hoping it was a good sign but might have been just auto time out.

hope if its server overload, people start logging out just enough to come down and blind the piss out of people with the old snap raises
