Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

this is the only site i will even consider playing on with everything going on in the industry and the state of the world in general and id advise the same for all USA based players. GP is the only USA facing site that's even close to being trustworthy and having safe games.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Just went back in to look around....

Why are the player screenname fonts too small to read, and why is it taking years to fix?

Why is my f***ing "turn off avatars" feature not working ?

How do I know if people using HUDs are actually being caught in less than, say, a matter of weeks (OR AT ALL) while I follow the rules and give up a huge edge?

Given these things how the hell can the jacked-up rake be justified?

Global is the worst site I've ever seen in the 20 years I've been doing this.

There should be a movement to inform the fish that the DOJ already said they're done going after "outlaw" sites and nobody really has to put up with this s**t. I don't, unless I'm tryng to get in hands between 5-9 AM and the housework is all done.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

How many people have actually been banned for using HUDs?
How long did it take to catch them (AKA how long did we play at a severe disadvantage before they were caught) ?
How sure are you that nobody using HUDs has found a way to falsify their identity multiple times to keep returning?

Global is so dumb. You ban HUDs and expose EVERYBODY to the worst kind of player who is willing to jump through the hoops to cheat when you know you're barely enforcing it , if at all.

Then you do nothing about multitabling grinders playing tables in the double digits (at least last time I was in there), and everywhere there are people insulting and swearing at each other.

If you want to know how to make a "Rec-friendly" site, look at ignition. 4 table limit, no insults/swearing allowed. HUDs aren't drying up the action over there but YOUR crappy situation is.

How much did you lose? Take a step back, be calm. Your post is incoherent if you just take a look at read it again. Global has exceeded my expectations so far in terms of their software and their super quick cash outs.

Sure I have plenty of complaints, but they are by far the least shady site the US has available and all my communications and transactions with them have been effortless.

They do need to get rid of those achievements though because they are worthless and can be confusing to a large part of the population. Make some fun achievement program or reward system so the recs look forward to something and keep them playing longer.

I've won about $4000 over a tiny sample of NL50 through NL200 during the past 3 years. I play there sporadically as there is usually a better option for the reasons I stated above.

When you say that all negative posts about poker websites come from people who are angry that they lost money there, it just highlights the fact that you are unwilling to address my legitimate criticisms.

It's also shallow to equate mediocre compositional technique with "incoherence".

I don't need to lose money to have concerns, and I don't automatically just keep playing at a site because I'm winning when that's something I do everywhere I've played. If you can't wrap your head around that, it's probably because youre really impressed with yourself for having won money at any site at all (Global).

This is a coherent post. So I will admit that. Your prior post I think you can see why people would have issue with it. I still
Don’t agree with anything you were posting, but you are allowed your opinion. Good luck!

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Synch breaks might not be possible on their platform.

I play cash, and would play tournaments regularly if:

- totally new structure. starting stacks can be much bigger, or smaller. blind increases need to be more sensitive to the gameflow - they feel blocky and arbitrary currently.

- final table deal making

- leaderboards aren't necessary, but would be fun.

Minor annoyance - not being able to filter out satellites from the lobby. Color coding would go a long way imo.

I believe that there are other sites using the same software that have sync breaks. Also, even if it's not a function in the software, it would be pretty easy to "brute force" sync breaks by lining up the breaks at :55 past the hour.

Rake is way too high but the players are very bad. You can count on SS, there are hundreds of players beating the games long term.

+1 structures are awful, Only play cash on global but would fire more mtts if the structure was not so terrible.

less than 5% of players with 1K+ games at the hypers are profitable

if true, does global actually want this? poker where no1 wins or can win? that isnt poker.

I'd probably take this bet.

You find as many players as you can, on ss, with 1k+ hypers played, that are net losers in hypers. For every 20 you can find, I'll have to find 1 who has played 1k+ hypers and is profitable. How much are you looking to bet and what kind of escrow would you like to secure?

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

It would be nice to have some bigger PKOs on the daily/weekly schedule. I'd imagine a $100 daily 10k would always hit the gtd and a reg speed and turbo $100-200 10-20k on Sundays would also.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

I can live with not being able to upload hh's into a tracker, but if I could just get a screen that tells me how many hands I have played at a table, that would be cool.
