Other than misreading the second 2 as a 5 earlier, did I misunderstand something in the hand? He rivered a straight and re-raises your bet, and you called it.

Aside from the crazy action board, what am I not seeing? Honest question.

You're either missing everything or you're trolling and I suspect the latter so... good day.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I've been playing Global on my phone and notice a few things missing:

1. There is no "3x" BB button
2. There is no option to post, and are forced to wait for BB

If I play on a tablet instead of a phone is there a chance I'll get these options back? Wondering if my device isn't large enough, or if you just can't do these on a mobile device regardless.

I haven't played on a mobile device, but I have played where I have the window pretty small. Mostly when I am trying to get those Gold Coins flops in With that said, I also notice buttons tend to disappear as the window shrinks. Its all HTML5 so I would guess you are correct, your device just isn't pushing enough pixels for those options to show.

No definitely wasn't trolling, but I was watching it on my phone and the table was very tiny. Lol, I see what you meant. Oops, my bad and I get your comment. Completely.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Few questions:

-Is there a withdrawal limit
-Is there any kind of play through rule (ie. I deposit $1k, can I cashout $1k the next day without playing or do I have to hit a min amount of rake?)
-What is the paypal fee for cashing out?

Thanks.

I am not sure on the withdraw limit. I am not good enough to ever run into that big of a number But I have seen people post on here and other places they have had withdraws of low 5 figures.

There is a play through rule that some players have run into. Again I haven't personally experienced it myself, but from what I have gleaned from the forums it is a 1x play through rule.

There is no paypal fee for cashing out! There used to be but Global fixed this a few months back, much to the praise of the player base.

Ultimately send a PM to the support people or email with these questions to get it straight from the horses mouth. I would hate to mislead you with bad info.

Oh dude...please tell me that's not your main method for doing the GC hands each week. Can be done in like 30 minutes if you 12 table and fold every hand.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Hello, first time posting here. I hope this is the right place for this question, and I apologize if it has been answered before.

Is it possible for two ppl in the same household to each have an account? I have been playing for about a month on global and my girlfriend wants to give it a try. I do not want my account banned tho. I read the TOS and it said only 1 acct per person. If they see two accounts under different names with the same IP will this be an issue? Thanks in advance for any clarifications on this.

You won't be allowed to register for the same tournaments, which really sucks but is understandable. Not sure what would happen if you tried to join the same cash tables, but as long as you aren't playing together there shouldn't be a problem. I have two others in my house playing periodically and it's been totally fine (minus the tourney thing).

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

What is the deal with deposit history not being available on this site? It's so bizarre and annoying. I mean yeah in the grand scheme of things, not high on the list of complaints, but it's just weird that you have to go to paypal and scroll through your own transactions to figure out what you've deposited here.

The "history" section of your account at globalpoker.com only shows payouts, and there's no financial info listed at all at globalpoker.com/play. Why would they even have a "history" section if it's not gonna include deposits?

I emailed support about this and they basically just confirmed what I've said above, that they don't have/keep/make deposit histories available, you have to contact Paypal.

My tracked results on this site far understate my actual winnings (for some reason can't get any hands from August 2017 where I did well on here). So in the future, sans deposit history for the site, I'm gonna have a difficult/annoying time trying to prove my results here, if ever I had to.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

What is the logic behind not allowing late registration, especially into rebuy tournaments like your Eagle Cup main event. That is absolutely brutal, I was forced to miss this tournament because I logged in 5 minutes late.

Hi BetzPH,

- there is no withdrawal limit
- 1x playthrough
- players are not charged the PayPal cash out fee

Thanks

Hi Willii,

Thanks for getting in touch.

Getting in touch (like you have done here) is a great start - perhaps send am email to support as well so that they have it on file.

You will be unable to play in the same tournament from the same IP but you are both able to have active accounts.

Nah, I can only 6 table, max. My small laptop, where I normally play, doesn't have great screen resolution.

They do allow you to register and just blind down your stack. Which if you know you want to play, I always make sure to register well before the start time.

As far as no late reg, I personally don't mind seeing it that way at all. Its been a distinction that Global has held on to and I wouldn't mind seeing it stay that way.

Email support with the countries you have in mind, so far that is how they have handled these kinds of requests. I haven't seen an official list posted anywhere.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Btw, when I have Global on one of my tags in Chrome, it still reads: Global Poker |Making Online Poker Great Again

Maybe this was still funny before that pathologically narcissistic/half-senile wannabe dictator monster got elected, but it ain't now, and I would prefer to not have to see that. And, I mean, regardless of anyone's political preference, it seems a bad business decision to have a tagline referencing a deeply unpopular politician ...
