Letting players sit down with 10BB are making the tables not fun.
It is not as bad at higher stakes. Anyways, just flip coins with the little guys until you snap them or there is a stack to play against xD

While most shorties are braindead with 10bb they actually have a tremendous edge if they are halfway competent. Starting games with shorties is also a losing proposition with the terrible rake heads up. When the site was small it was fine because it helped games run. The 10bb buy in is no longer necessary as games seem to start up fine from what I can see.

Interesting.. but you may be overestimating the competency of the type of players that buy in that short. However that does give me an idea, being a stt/mtt player it may not be a bad idea to short buy @ higher stakes and double up a couple times and leave, and I could see where the cash guys wouldn't like it. My time is better spent on playing my games though and I get better return in my formats. If people start doing that more than rec players splashing around with or trying to run up 10bbs then it may be time to get rid of the short buy.

I think the cash guys just want to force the fishies into being fleeced faster and thats never good.

I start with saying while most shorties are braindead. So I'm not overestimating the competency of them. But for those that aren't braindead you create many favorable situations for yourself preflop. UTG opens 3x with AQ, button calls with 44, you are in BB with 10bb and 88. You are either going to be three way for a triple up, or playing heads up for 23bb. If/when bots start playing here they will all buy in 10bb and give themselves an edge.

Mr. Bigshot,
YOU are ridiculous. Just because you haven't encountered the "the screen froze and we can't find your tourney BS" doesn't mean that others should do nothing for a "measly $77" as you say. I've read numerous people claim that the screen froze at the end of the tourney, even final hand, so I tend to believe it. If they are doing this on purpose to avoid paying out, they are greedy pigs (since they are making tons of money already), and deserve to be shut down, even if you are making money on the site.

Well I cancelled it myself and consequently spent the money which I believe was their intent all along. It appears that many people get their cashouts in a reasonable time but I along with many others did not. My advice would be to answer someone back telling them that you have received their ID info and that it would be 7-10 days to get it processed. It is really that simple. I think Global Poker has the worst customer service of any site that I have been on in many years. I am very internet savvy and have marketed many sites online but just acknowledging with a response would say everyone a lot of aggravation.
YOU didn't have the necessary patience. (My first cashout took 10-11 days). YOU canceled the cashout. YOU lost the money. Don't blame the site.

To clarify, I am not stating I hold this opinion, or don't hold this opinion. I am just summarizing what has been said before
Since there are no wait lists, it would be nice to be able to filter out full tables, so only tables with open seats are displayed.

Sounds like a solid feature suggestion to me, if you haven't already I would drop this idea on the Global Poker Improvement Thread

If the screen froze, how do you know it was the final hand?

This is incorrect. The deeper the stacks, the more skill plays a role in the game of NLHE. The reason for this is that the game [decision] tree becomes much larger as stacks become deeper.

On the other hand, as stacks become shallower, opponents are less exploitable because there is less options available in the game tree to be able to exploit players. Therefore, neither the rat-holers, nor you, should have a tremendous edge.

To illustrate this, think about how high the variance is in MTTs versus cash games. MTTs have a lot of variance and cash less-so. This is because MTTs generally have much shorter stacks than cash games. More skill = Less variance.

If/when bots start playing here they will all buy in 10bb and give themselves an edge.
People over-estimate what bots can do in multi-way situations. Even with a 10bb bot it is quite hard to create winning strategies for several reasons..

Being that equilibrium strategies, which are strongest heads up, start to fall apart in multi-way scenarios and equilibrium is not even guaranteed to be a break-even strategy multi-way, while it is heads up (w/out rake). If a programmer decided not to use equilibrium strategies for their bot (an exploitative bot), then the bot would likely have huge holes in it's game and would be highly exploitable - therefore, the bot wouldn't play at stakes that were high enough to make decent money and players shouldn't worry about bots for that reason.

I have seen loads of players claiming that there are bots on GP but I can guarantee there is no bots that sit and play mutli-way cash games at 100nl+. The only people that even could closely resemble bots are half-stackers, or less, that sit and try to play heads up, when you are sitting at a 6max table, trying to start a game. And even those players I would be hesitant about calling bots as most of them are making large fundamental errors. That is why you may see myself sit at 6max tables and sit out until 2+ people sit down to play with me.

Lastly, the situation you described is lacking any supporting math to claim these short stackers can "give themselves an edge". You don't give any EV calculations nor do you describe the probability of any given player having a particular holding/range.

You could sit around waiting for 10bb scenario where you have 88+, AQo+ so that you can shove and steal the pot or get called and play for 20-30bb or whatever the pot be but that range is so tight that you will be folding too often while in the blinds, that you will lose money in the long run. So yes, 88 is a profitable shove in that scenario you described, but that only describes one scenario and not a FULL STRATEGY for the game. If bots were easy to create as you think then they would be all over the place and that just is not the case.

Lol doh okay. I think there's comprehension issues or a lack there of taking place here on your end. Of course that's a problem if that happened and not once did I say or suggest otherwise. Where in my prior post did I state how this was not worth bringing to global's attention? If you would've taken a second or two to think about what was said, then you'd realize that my point was be patient and give global more than 24 hours to resolve this before spazing like a donkey when they realize that have top pair on the flop and jamming all in.

If you have spent any time reading thru threads here, you'd be aware that every issue that has been brought up in terms of cashouts, or other circumstances where there has been a financial consideration involved, they have been taken care of by global.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Going to check out a different site with rakeback and lower rake. Might be back. There was a lot of runbad too. And 100% of the time I had QQ, KK, AA I either win the blinds/antes or get stacked/double up someone in the blinds that flops the nuts with 8 high. Every time I made a play I got a lot of action though. Having a hard time accepting all of this. Going to see what a break or change of scenery does. I like GP, gl

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

First MTT on this site, and the table would not load on chrome. I had to manually click on each table, until I found the one I was sitting at. I lost chips, and wont be regging any other mtts anytime soon.
Every time I clicked the "Go to Table' button, NOTHING happened.

Check your pop-up blocker. I use chrome all of the time and it works great, and I know others have said the same thing. Sounds like something with your particular install. You also might try Firefox. I use it was well and it too has given me no issues.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

<----- OLD SCHOOL COOL.

Hey guys ever since Black Monday I took my poker playing skills to the live tables and have been making money there consistently. I've followed the online options for my state religiously since then and am ready to jump back online.

Only problem is... I can't get globalpoker.com/play to load when I click "play poker" I'm using Chrome and fully updated.

I just get the black logo screen with the load bar "powered by Cubeia" and nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated at this moment.

I would try Firefox, I use both and they both work for me, but one might be better for you than the other. FWIW I would stay clear of IE.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Ive seen the site take a full minute to load some times. And some times the table gets overly minimized and if you scroll away from it it can make a blank black screen until you scroll the small table back into view. Then just adjust zoom or rotate screen or refresh.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

What if my drivers license address doesn't match my current address? I recently moved so my ID still has my old address. The verification email states they must match but I imagine many people do not have drivers licenses that have their current address.

Thanks!
