Bodog Ice,
I can see you have responded to this quote, but I want to bring more attention to it. I understand stalling when approaching the bubble is apart of the game, ESP. online, and I have done this probably over 100 times in my life. That being said, 30 seconds x 4-5 players per table with an additional 90 second timebank is outrageous. As Trau stated, not only is this a problem near the bubble of a tournament because it forces the stacks to become much shorter (than they already are) but people just time out constantly and it is beyond frustrating. Please consider reducing tournament timebanks at least 10 seconds. Remember we have the extra minute and a half behind as well.

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

payouts are great. a check is sent within 1 week. depending where the check is from your bank might freeze it. I have received checks from Singapore that took 3 weeks to clear, and others from my same city that cleared instantly.

you are only allowed one cashout per month, if you need more they will charge you 50$.

checks are sent by fedex or dhl, depending where they are coming from.

There was nothing inappropriate about his post. Your post was inaccurate. He rightly corrected it. No big deal.

You are a big part of this problem. Stalling isn't part of the game it is against the rules which makes it cheating. How bout you stop stalling yourself before asking the website to fix a problem you help cause.

This is a huge problem and annoyance in tournaments, both sng's and mtt's. The timer either needs to be lowered all the time or should be lowered for an individual if they time out one or more times and they could gradually get their time back after acting quicker.

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

The stalling has become absurb in MTTs. People need to report stallers to the network and the network needs to actually look into it.

Down to 2 tables the other night, we had 2 players timing down every decision, even a simple fold pre. The other table played close to double the hands as we did. That is not acceptable and there is no way to justify why it is.

If Bodog is okay with this then that to me is basically them saying FU to all the players that actually want a fair game, like they advertise.

It's in your rules Bodog. People trust you with their money. Don't advertise fair, safe games, if protecting the rec player means letting them stall and not warning them when they are reported.

I don't play many tournaments and RARELY use the time bank, but do you get 90 additional seconds every hand?

No. You get some (all?) back at each blind level, I believe.

Hello,

In response to your hand, it has been passed along and everything looks correct according to what the network sees. But, if you could post a screenshot of the hand history showing a problem.. I would be happy to send that along as well.

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

Damnit I am a total moron. I was supposed to win that hand. I'm really sorry for going rigtard on you. My opponent freaked out like it was a mess up and then my brain saw what it wanted I guess. I defenitely gotta lay off the doobie.
