Re: *** Official Bodog Network Support Thread ***

BODOG theirs GREAT PL Omaha hi low traffic on your site now. Their is only 1 decent size Pl omaha hi low tourny on the site a week the 50 dollar pl omaha hi low on sunday. They need to institute this tourny everyday. They can just make it a non gurantee on the weekdays to see the traffic for theirselves. 50 dollar pl omaha hi low 5k-10k starting chips would be perfect!!

Ice,

Are you aware of any restrictions Bovada plans on placing towards players from NJ once NJ's regulated sites go live later this year?

I will pass it along.

If you run into this again, could you please take a screenshot and pm it to me?

Restrictions are up to the individual operator, so I wouldn't have any knowledge about these decisions.

I can't reload or buy in at new tables right now.

But the tables I'm currently sitting at are playing fine, just can't top up, annoying...

Re: *** Official Bodog Network Support Thread ***

Ice,

I am a fairly new player to your site and think overall you guys are doing a great job. I have a few suggestions for you to pass along though. Just so you know, I am primarily a HU/6 max PLO player who occasionally plays NLHE cash and tournaments

1. Deep/Ante Tables (HU/6 max)

Tables with a minimum buyin of 50bb and a maximum buyin of 250bb and a mandatory ante which I suppose around 1/5 of the BB. I think these tables would be an immediate success and I'm sure a lot of the professional players/recreational players would enjoy them. It would cut out a lot of the players who buy in very short and I think many people don't enjoy playing in games with people who buy in short.

2. The 5 Minute Limit to Re-Join Table

This rule is extremely frustrating for me. As mostly a HU player, if I ever disconnect while playing then almost always it kicks me off the table. This kills HU action essentially because no one will wait 5 min after someone disconnects and then leaves the table - they just assume they're gone for good. Plus, if they do stick around, then if you re join the table they don't even know if they're playing the same person or a different one. IMO, the 5 minute time limit should just be taken off for HU tables. Also, I'm not for sure if Bovada does this but you should be able to buy back in with the amount that you left/disconnected the table with.

3. Auto Rebuy/Reload Feature

This isn't really a big deal but just more of a convenience thing. It's just annoying to have to constantly click the "buy more chips option" every time you lose a significant pot. Seems like a pretty easy feature to implement though.

4. Higher Stakes Zone Poker for PLO

Zone Poker seems to be catching on pretty slowly for anything higher than 10c/25c, so I understand how you guys have been gradually offering higher stakes but I would like to see 50c/1 & 1/2+ added for PLO 6 max

5. Rewards Program

I'd also like to see a Rewards/Rakeback program for players. I understand Bovada has a points system where you can buy in to specific tournaments but I think there should be other options such as cash bonuses or maybe a store with miscellaneous things (iPad, laptop, Bovada clothing apparel, ect)

That's all I can really think of for now.

Thanks,

Shane

Making pros and grinders happy isn't what Bodog aims to do per se. They keep them happy by having fishy games and fast payouts. Beyond that, don't expect them to do things that make your winrate higher... it's just not their business model.

Yep, got three tables up now and can't reload on any. Plus won't let me buy in to other tables.

This. Aside from the 5 minute rule, which affects and frustrates all players.

I know players who love the 5 minute rule. And I have fish that love to double up, leave, and come back in 5 minutes. They will reload 10 times to double up and leave again, so I don't mind the rule either.

Sorry, yeah I don't really mind that part, although I don't think it does much to deter short stackers which was the purpose from memory?

I am specifically referring to when you disconnect for like a few seconds, the table locks up, and then you have to close it. Meaning you get booted off for at least 5 minutes and someone more than likely takes your seat, and if you do get back on you can't buy back in to your previous stack if it was over 100bbs.

Yea, I do agree, that is annoying as hell. *shrug* Not nearly enough to keep me out of these games

Re: *** Official Bodog Network Support Thread ***

I'm sorry if this has been discussed. I tried searching this thread to find a way to save hand histories? I want to be able to upload my hand histories to see my graphs/winrate. I know using HUDs is against Bovada's rules and I have no intention of doing this. Any advice on how to do this and if it is allowed would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

In the client, go to account->hand histories->game transactions. You can download anything between 24 hours and 7 days old.

Hi,

I have signed up to Bodog888 from New Zealand but am told there are no deposit options yet for my country.

Any timeline on when this will change?

Thanks.

Relates to individual operator's cashier, so Bodog Ice won't be able to help.

Unfortunately has been that way for me in Aus for about 4 months or more. They also cancelled existing cashout options bar a bank transfer which I haven't had the chance to use yet.

Zone bug below.

Also, when you said they'll increase the zone table cap in the near future, by "near future" did you mean weeks or months? Thinking about withdrawing my roll as soon as the back to school promotion is over.

Thanks for the pic.. I will pass that along right away.

As far as timeline on raising the table cap, that's something I'm not sure of at this time.

Re: *** Official Bodog Network Support Thread ***

Great first day of the GSPO. Both the Kickoff Event and Event #1 blew past their guarantees (by 21% and 65%)!

The Golden Spade Poker Open fun continues today with events 2-5.

Event #2 is an $11 $1,000 gtd Super Stack at 10:01
Event #3 is a $5.50 $2,000 gtd plo rebuy at 17:01
Event #4 is a $16.50 $10,000 gtd Super Stack at 19:01
Event #5 is an $11 $6,000 gtd turbo at 20:01

All of this on top of the normal Big Money Sunday tournaments such as the $215 $25,000, the $162 $100,000, the $11 $15,000, and the $5.50 $5,000!

Good luck to all that participate!
