+1 to this for sure. I actually cut back on my cash game play because I couldn't justify it as much with the 100 flop freeroll going go $250. And I would imagine the cash game numbers are higher during promos as well when you need to see 5000 flops or whatever for a big freeroll. It for sure incentivizes me to play.

Re: rakeback please

freerolls?! seriously? $250 tourney is literally nothing. ppl are playing 3000nl, they aren't going to waste time playing a $250 freeroll. that's fine if they want to have a few freerolls, I guess they will help out the micro stakes, but they just raised the rake to higher than any other, AND give no incentives out (as of yet) except the $100 on a $5k deposit.

And you have good reason to believe that spending 5-6 figures each month on a BBJ would be the best way to invest such money?
Yes

Yes

And have good customer service... and cover paypal fees.... and not have lag on any server ever... and do charity tournies... and respond quickly on 2+2 even to the craziest of people... and do it on their weekends... and if they can't handle that... then they better be ready to hear my wrath on 2+2.

End sarcastic rant.

I've played in the $2K games (full ring) I didn't know they had $3K games. I LOVE the stupid small free rolls. Binking $500ish in the weekly free roll during the promotion while drunk off my ass was the most fun I've had in a long time in poker

I believe you can buy in for 3000 on the "2000nl" tables.

I also played the freerolls yesterday for the first time. too bad for me, because I ended up losing more than I would have due to having to "finish my freeroll". anyway, what I'm saying is that I would far rather have a small deposit bonus or something rather than these freerolls.

Why don't you just go play at the casino then? I don't get the mindset of most ppl in this thread. You're benefiting from Global way more than they're benefiting from you. If they provide good games, why should they then have to offer you and incentive to play in them?

I actually buy coffee and Starbucks and complain to the barista all the time about how expensive it is. You know what she says to me, "That will be 5.25. Thanks for coming in, we will see you tomorrow." Until enough people vote with their feet Starbucks and Global will not care. And here is the dirty secret of capitalism... they shouldn't.

wow, how times have changed. I guess they don't have a ton of competition, but to say that global isn't benefiting from their players?! I mean cmon, guy. would you rather own a poker site or play at one? my personal answer is clear.

idk I hate playing at the casino I live close to one but its so damn boring I mean you make a good point I dont see why I can't complain and try to get rakeback though I'm freerolling if they dont give it to me whatever..

they should give some sort of reward like tiny like shop or something like a tv or like hats if you make certain levels I think it would just be a classy move on their part to acknowledge players that are dumping 20k in rake a month to them okay you know? I guess It's not that most rational argument it's just how I feel.

I'm not saying that they don't benefit from us, because they surely do. But if they were to lose you, they wouldn't notice. If you were to lose them, it would be devastating. I'd rather own one, but since i can't I'd rather have the site that i play on offer me great games.

I didn't mean for my post to come across as an attack, so i apologize if it seemed that way. It's definitely a valid point and I play very high volume as well, so i feel where you're coming from....I've probably paid $30-50k in rake. But it's my opinion that any personal benefit that i might gain from a reward system will like have consequences where the cons outweigh the pros. Give ppl rakeback based on volume? That encourages multitabling and rakeback grinding, which have a large impact on your winrate. Additionally, when you have so many players multitabling, a combination of losing more frequently and slow actions at the tables, make the playing experience for a recreational player go way down. Free swag? Wouldn't you rather have money going into marketing to draw in new players rather than receiving a t-shirt? Reload bonuses? We've seen how far will ppl go to get a free $2, imagine if it was $200. Freerolls? I like the idea of freerolls that are invite only (for losing players). Any sort of reward system should be focused on boosting the playing experience for recreational players. Because when recreational players are happy, everybody is happy.

Re: rakeback please
