Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

MTT schedule and structure needs to be improved. does global have any plans of adding more tourneys? kinda sucks to wait 30-hour for next tourney to start.

Could you put up a copy of said email? I didn't get one on my end and am curious as to what it says. I assume it was an all players alert kind of email correct?

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

WHAT NEXT?
We are already planning our next championship at Global Poker HQ and details will be announced in due course. In the meantime we are improving our regular tournament schedule.

From next week we will have a new and improved schedule with increased guarantees, so that you can sharpen your skills before the next championships!

Personally I don't experience those symptoms. Normally if I am 6 tabling it is for Gold Coins, but I don't think the software really cares which currency I am playing.

What browser are you using, and do you have any extensions on it?

I am on firefox myself, chrome has become a bit bloated, but not really with the CPU, more often the RAM usage is pretty high in Chrome. I would for sure try another browser, as QL suggested as well, Opera is a decent choice as well.

Do you know what kind of processor you have? I also wonder if you got patched for the recent Meltdown and Specter vulnerabilities. The directly affect your CPU speed and would likely cause you to see a rise in load where you didn't before.

https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

If you download that utility it will tell you if you are patched, and if the patch will affect your performance. From there you can alter the patch and then check to see if your performance increases.

Yes Bill you are correct. Was confusing when I first started as well but now it seems so simple.

I have been using uBlock ever since I signed up. The only thing I had to do was disable pop-up blocker to run "pro" mode which is multiple tables.

Why doesn't Global make hand histories available for MTTs and SNGs? Could that change, please?

Thank you again for your time.My processor is :
Processor Type: AMD FX-Series
Processor Speed: 2.10GHz

I would not upgrade your memory for this problem, but if you are planning on upgrading it anyway for other reasons, it can't hurt.

The good news is being on AMD you are not vulnerable to Meltdown

https://www.amd.com/en/corporate/speculative-execution

And with the patch not installed yet for spectre, it sounds like that isn't the issue either.

I would for sure try another browser. Firefox in the recent version has improved ALOT. Although if you have any extensions that you love in Chrome, they may or may not be on Chrome, and I can understand why that might be a deal breaker for some.

I also do like Opera, as QL suggested, although I prefer firefox myself. I haven't heard good or bad really about edge with Global Poker, but I would use that as a last resort.

You may also want to pull up your task manager when you play and see which graph peaks out. Hit me up on here if you need specific instructions on how to do that.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Hi

I screwed up apparently as I failed to notice that global poker was only for us citizens and deposits work fine from European accounts but not cashouts? I deposited quite a bit and ran it up. Am I totally screwed here it's quite misleading to accept payments never once say it doesn't pay out to non us.

Is there any way to fix this or am I just screwed over here by 'global poker. Seems shady to accept payments and not pay out tbh.

And yes I know I failed big-time on checking out the site. Went through one review and one short thread on the site.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

If I can get the deposit back I will donate the remainder of the balance to a charity of global or 2+2 s choosing.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Thanks. Yeah I sent him a message and I hope he can check out any possibility of fixing it. Apparently he's not involved directly in those processes but I hope there's something to be done.
