You're literally suggesting they do away with what makes the site the most money LMAO.
The site makes money from rake and it's the recreational players that fuel the games in the first place, not regs. If you were to get rid of all of the recreational players then there would simply be no games running long term. While table starters do offer some benefit to the poker site in the short term in that it enables a recreational player to find a game, the caveat is that the reg who starts tables expects to win at each table in which he plays (to a lesser, although still positive, expectation as his table count increases).

A great way to look at this is to imagine everybody at a table as a +(if they're a winner who cashes out) or a -(if they're a losing player who doesn't cash out). So at a 6 handed game we have:

1. - 2. - 3. - 4. - 5. + 6. +

The site is generating rake from this table only so long as seats 1-4 continue to play. As soon as players 5 and 6 win all of the money the games stops and no more rake is generated. Since most recreational players don't multitable, the ability to play more than 'x' amount of tables only benefits regs (individually) and will increase the + to - player ratio at every table.

So instead of the first scenario, before long you'll see:

1. - 2. + 3. + 4. + 5. + 6. +


The first scenario is a better playing experience for everybody. The game quality is much better for regs, but what's way more important is that it's a better playing experience for the recreational players. When recreational players get they opportunity to play against other recreational players they actually get to experience winning. In the 2nd scenario there's almost no chance that the recreational player can win and makes him that much less likely to redeposit. The only person hurt by the 1st scenario is the reg who not longer has the ability to mass multitable and because now he can't multiply his potential to beat recreational players out of their money across extra tables. The only benefit the mass multitabler offers to a poker site is his willingness to start tables. But a global wait list accomplishes WAY better in that it allows recreational players to find a game whenever they want, and find a game in an environment this isn't completely overrun with multi tabling regs.


Quote:
Second, there's no ability to use a HUD so why punish someone who wants to play more tables?? (oh, that's right. because you suck at multitabling and are jealous of people who make more money than you) With that logic all hands should be all in preflop coin flips because any type of poker playing "rewards regs".
The ability to use a hud and play multiple tables isn't mutually exclusive. While having a hud helps the multitabler, it's irrelevant to the point. I play 6 tables so this would hurt me in the short term, but it would be better for the long term health of the site.


Quote:
And the more tables a person plays the more their game suffers so it actually rewards the single table recreational player.

3. It "rewards" the single table recreational player in that he loses less to the reg; it doesn't make him a winner in the game.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

I have no idea what that kind of math you're doing there, but the simple fact is even if you limited tables the recreational player is going to be bum hunted just as hard if not harder. You seem to think that regs won't play on this site with table limits. As long as there are fish they most certainly will.

Right now go look in the lobby and you'll see the ONLY reason there are constantly 3/6nl and 10/20nl games going are solely because of the same 3-4 regs. In fact, most of the time those games are 5-6 regs playing (which I find hilarious on their part because there's no rakeback and they're too stubborn to step down and bum hunt)

While your point about games being better is debatable with table limits, there's no chance in hell the site is making even close to the same amount of money. And if Global is the only real game in town it's not going to stop recreational players from playing.

What this guy said^^^

There is no disadvantage to the site if a guy plays 20+ tables and there is no disadvantage to the rec players either. If a person can play 20 tables profitably then he will only be more profitable if you limit him to six making the games a lot harder for rec players.

I vote no on table limits.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Ok first off I really like the site overall! Here are my suggestions at this point in the order of importance.

1. I have seen many ask for a waitlist in cash games, I disagree and would rather see the new Ignition style table signup that is essentially the same you would find in a live casino.

2. The 10bb min buy-in is a bit rough, 30bb seems better.

3. Many have complained abut the still playing pop-up, I assumed that was for bot prevention... is that true or is it a sweepstakes requirement, what kind of bot prevention is in place (more of a question than a suggestion).

4. Along with a better table sign up system, it might get more tables going if you reward table starters.

5. Agree with everyone else that the time bank/timeout issue is a real problem and should get fixed.

6. The Sunday tournament should have a slightly slower blind structure, love it but would love it more with slower blinds

That is all for now, would love some feedback from global on what their plans are... Please don't do waitlist, do everything possible to keep it recreational player friendly! Great job so far!

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Just found this site the other day. I've only played about 3 hours and will likely not have a ton of time to play due to life/work, but it's good to know I can get my poker fix on occasion.

Today I played a bit and then left the house. When I came back I found that I was still logged into the lobby. This seems to be a security issue - how about an auto logout when a player has been idle or not at a table for a certain time?

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but I seem to be having issues with the auto rebuy randomly. Every so often, the auto rebuy just won't work, and I have to manually rebuy every time I drop below 100bb.

The mute player seems to always say "unmute player" even when players are not muted.

That's not what i'm saying at all. Regs are going to play at any site if there are recreational players, table limit or not. It's that by limiting the number of tables that a person can play, you decrease the total # seats that regs occupy across all tables. This means that overall, regs would be taking less $$ out of the ecosystem at any given time.

If a reg can play 20 tables profitably his winrate on each individual table goes down , but he makes more money overall. So in your opinion, less regs being seated at tables = a lot harder time for rec players How does that make any sense?

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

1. Rathole limit on a table should be reset when the game breaks.
2. Pot and half-pot buttons are incorrect when limped to on BB. Pot button is 1BB too low.
3. Notes get deleted when changes are made on multiple tables for the same player.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Never had a problem with globalpoker support. They are much better than any other USA facing poker site. I know that's not saying much but I also believe they are at least as good as pokerstars and full tilt during their prime. I've also never had any issues with withdrawals. I've had ~30 withdrawals and all but 2 hit my PayPal in ~24hrs.

Personally the only significant problem I'm having right now is I'm constantly being rushed. This is due to 2 things:
1. First audio alert is barely audible
2. Tables do not pop to front on action

#1 seems like it could be addressed immediately so it's really disappointing that it has not been 'fixed'. #2 seems like it would take significant coding so I understand that it has not been addressed yet.

Basically whats happening is by the time I hear the second alert (which is really loud) I'm scrambling to find the correct table and then I make a rushed decision. An easy quick fix would be to add more time after the second alert.

If you could address these 2 issues I believe your tourneys would be significantly shorter (I notice players constantly going deep into their time bank) which could possibly help your bottom line.

PS: forgot about issue #3: industry standard synchronized breaks

To clarify its at $50 + $5 not a $50 + $0, which would be awesome. But also highly unexpected.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

I would like to have a chop feature that starts working at final tables of tourneys. The way I see it a new checkbox would show up that says "Willing to chop?". Everyone checks yes, at the next level a break happens and chop can be discussed. 1 min to reach agreement, then tourney starts again.

Hand Histories. It seems the only HH available are for cash games, or am I not looking in the right place? HH for tournaments would also be nice.

Hand histories are only available for cash games, you are correct, but I agree I would love to see tourneys in there as well.
