Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

I was just looking at the new SMPO schedule and the first thing that jumps out at me is the lack of PLO high events. There is only a $3 and a $5 event. There is other PLO H/L events, including a 109 10k. This is sad. Plo popularity is growing and there needs to be more Plo high events, esp at least 1 bigger buy in. We would love a 6 max rebuy I understand the schedule is made but maybe something to look at in the future.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Hi, is there any chance of getting Razz added to the site? 5/10, 10/20, and 20/40+ would be nice.

Also higher limits for stud8 and omaha8 please.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Why are the Sunday 162 sats so terrible and scammy? There is ONE 16+1 with 1500 chips and 12 minute levels and then a bunch of 16+1.60 "last chance" sats with 1k chips and 6 minute levels. Not to mention the 10% rake on 700 chip / 5 min level hypers.. What's the deal?

^There's the 50 seat GTD and the 7.70 R/A, but other than that and the 16+1 I agree the satellite schedule sucks. And I hate that they charge 10% rake on hyper turbo satellites, it's ridiculous.

There's plenty of slower sats earlier in the week. Check this page for the schedule:

http://poker.bovada.lv/tournaments/1...ker-tournament

The nonturbo semifinals, for example, run twice a day from mon-wed, and 3 times a day thurs-sun. The closer you get to the start of the tournament, though, the faster they have to go, in order to finish by the start (or at least, soon after the start) of the tournament. For example, the one with 12 minute levels that you mentioned is still running right now, and the tournament starts in 45 minutes.

There's also the 50 seat one that usually has hundreds of runners.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

When will NYS cash outs outside of Western Union come back? You guys claim its a 5 day processing time I'm on day 10 with no updates after it was approved, and a $1k max. How are people from NY supposed to cash out or supposed to be confident in keeping large balances on the site?

Has to be turbo because theirs routinely a morning tourny that has 10k starting stack with 30 people which last 4-5 hours sometimes which is ridicolous. A turbo should cut that in half and make it reasonable more fun and more people will play.

Bovada Definetly has the population to add these tournies. Every Hi Low game goes over the gurantee everyday by hundreds of dollars.

I thought for sure I had mentioned that I hadn't yet heard anything about the connection issues... but I must have missed that, sorry about that. Glad to hear everything is working better now.

I don't believe they are terrible or scammy... and you are missing satellites as madcatz mentioned (quoted below). If you have ideas that you'd like to see.. let me know, and I can pass them along.

As mentioned in the FAQ in the first post.. cashiers are done at the operator level, so any questions regarding deposits or cashouts would have to go to your operator.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Hey guys,

Many of you have probably already come across it, but I'd like to announce the next tournament series happening on the Bodog Poker Network: The Summer Million Poker Open!

The SMPO has satellites in the lobby now, with events beginning July 7th with the $22 $15,000 guarantee Warm-Up Event, the $82 $20,000 guaranteed Kickoff Event, and Event #1 a $5.50 $3,000 guaranteed turbo event! All told, there are 70 events on the schedule with over $1,000,000 in guarantees. With buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $162, there are plenty events available to play for all bankrolls.

Also, for three Sunday's in a row, the weekly $162 $100,000 guaranteed will become a special SMPO Event with the guaranteed doubled to $200,000!

The series is topped off by the Main Event on July 27th, a $109 $100,000 guarantee, with the winner of the event receiving a Championship watch!

Good luck to everyone that participates! For more information, please see you operator's promotions page.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

I have heard a lot about Bovada and have been thinking about joining. Just did some research online and found out they are an affiliate of Bodog, and one site said that prior US Bodog players were transferred to Bovada.

I had an account with Bodog and used to do sportsbetting and play poker there, but I haven't done so since 2006 or so, whenever UIEGA passed I believe. Does this mean I should already have an account at Bovada and would be able to log right in? Or would I be treated as a new US customer and be able to get the signup bonus?

IIRC your old log in will work, but not sure dating back to 06. Either way, you can make new account and are eligible for first time depo bonus. Sometimes there is some good limit action, just watch out for Player 4!

You know what, I was in a bad mood when I wrote this. I'm gonna have to take that back (that it sucks,) and say that it could be improved. There are plenty of good satellites.

My problem is that the hyper turbo rake IS too high. That's something I think is true in general of Bovada's HT satellites, but specifically in an event where there are 16+1 satellites regularly, why should the hyper turbos at the end be 16+1.60? Makes absolutely no sense for the players. I'll admit it makes sense for the netwrork if they figure to have nearly as many entries anyway.

They should also add in the 7+.70 R/A every day, preferably in the evening, but even the current 11:40 start like Saturday/Sunday would be OK. I'm not sure if the 20+2 5 seat GTD runs everyday, but if not it should.

I love that you have a daily Stud tournament. But does it have to be turbo? Will you consider making it either a DS/SS Turbo or just making it a regular like your limit Omaha/8 and limit Hold 'me daily tournaments?

yukoncpa- It seems that there was a bit of misinformation passed along, as you are more than welcome to review your hands after they have been played. As far as the collusion goes, collusion is looked at very closesly.. and as a result, reported incidents are taken VERY seriously. To allow people to collude and cheat players would go against the policies that the network has put into place in order to protect players.

Bonus Box- Some operators removed the bonus box for now in order to work out some kinks that it had. Players that are working on bonuses should have been notified, and if you haven't, you can email your operator's support for more information.

Zone Issue- There are some players that are experiencing an issue with Zone where they aren't removed from a table.. which makes them unable to join tables again. This is being worked on.

Connection Issues- This is still being worked on around the clock and the network hopes to have these issues fixed soon. In the meantime, if you are disconnected from a table, take a screenshot and pm it to me please.

Thanks,

Ice


Hello Ice. I was disconnected from a cash game where i had the nut high and the nut low. guys kept raising and i would of scooped whole pot for round 70-80 dollars. I called support and they said they couldnt refund me. I play on other sites I never disconnected. I also have the best internet connection money can buy. They wont do anything about it.. i almost lost 100 dollars their can you help me please? They lied and said their connection issues had been fixed but that is not true. I play on the site 12-14 hours a day and i see hundreds of people still getting disconnected daily. I Hope you can help me and find a way to make this right. It happened June 12th the hand number is 2876436122 I was seat #5 . Thanks

Why do the $200K's all have different starting stacks? 1 is 10K, another 6K, and the last one is 5k?

I would recommend contacting Bovada about the status of your account.

There isn't anything I can do on my end except pass the hand number along. Anything else would have to come from talking to support.

I'm not sure.. but I'll ask. Also note that the blind levels are also different for the different weeks (12 min, 15 min, and 20 min).

What's the best way to contact them about the status of my account?

Also, I live in California but am currently in Nevada for the WSOP. Would I be able to startup an account and fund it while physically in Nevada? I have read that new accounts and deposits are not available for Nevada residents.

Ice,
Can we get an eta on fixing the hand history and points to tickets screens? They are all jumbled up and pretty much unreadable. I can't even see the descriptions for the points to tournament tickets screen. It's just a simple formatting error so I don't really understand why it's taking so long. Also, I am on Windows 7. Thanks.

I gave up. I use the hand replayer and if I want to use the points to tickets window I will do so on my Mac. Maybe it'll be fixed sometime.

Hope he doesn't answer "soon" cause that's the answer we got about the check/fold button issues. 2 years ago.

Re: ***Bodog Poker Network Official Thread*** FAQ in First Post

Hopefully the network problems get fixed soon, still having disconnects and heavy lag.

Very high speed internet and a backup provider ensure me it's not on my end, esp because I have other sits+tv ect. still playing smoothly. Tbh I have a lot of good things to say about bovada, but these disconnects have now cost me literally thousandS <- of dollars the past few weeks

+ Some issues on mac, similar probs posted earlier but a little worse.

When connected to external monitor any attempt to resize the window results in it flying upwards off screen.
