Forget about it.

Bovada doesnt care if its killing your personal game.

Id like to have every fish sitting 100bb deep as well but its not going to happen.

They arent going to make a change that increases the profit ability of winning players.

No, this is not correct. Tables full of 100bb super nits playing 16/14 and timing out every other hand because they have 20 tables open on another site are what kill cash tables.

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

Can we please 1/a/any deposit options on the Bodog88 skin for (New Zealand players) currently zero options, why even accept New Zealand players if there is no way for them to play, it's not like we want to play here because of the owsome software....[/rant]

Or does bovada, bodog.eu, bodog88 all play in the same player base? Also what would bovada be known as in europe or australia? Is it bodog.eu? Thus theres bovada for usa players, bodog88 for asia and bodog.eu for every other country but usa and asia?


Because when i look at pokerscout, Im surprised why would bodog not be one of the top sites if it encompasses both americans and the rest of the world. Such as why are there more players on 888poker, ipoker and partypoker than on bodog if bodog has americans and everyone else. Can someone explain this?

Same player pool. Bodog brands do NOT accept Europeans at this time through any of their partner "skins/brands." Also, Bodog88 does NOT service all of Asia. So much of the monied ROW is excluded if that helps answer your other question.

Please shorten the time to act allowed in super turbo and hyper turbo sngs. If everyone took the entire time like some people are doing you will get in like 1 or 2 hands per blind level.

YES YES YES. Eliminate the time bank and lower the time to act. People that play super and hyper turbos want a fast game.

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

This is kinda funny. Yesterday I played in "$3,000 Gauranteed (SS)" (#4636496) tournament, but after I registered and opened the tournament lobby there was only $2,000 in the prize pool. I sent them an email asking why there was only $2000 in the prize pool of a $3000 guaranteed tournament and I get this response:
"Thanks for contacting Bovada Poker Customer Service.

We appreciate you taking the time to write us and we will be more than happy to assist you with your concern with regards to the $3K Guaranteed (SS) with a buy in amount of $22 + $2.

Please be advised that for the said tournament we can only know the total price money once we have finalized on how may players have registered. The computation for this will be $20 x 139 = $2,780 which will be the total prize pool.

We hope this clarifies your inquiry. Should you have more questions, please do not hesitate to contact us."

I responded by saying they missed my point about there being less than $3000 in a $3000 guaranteed tournament, and they responded by an almost identically worded response as the first.

Obviously this is a pretty big glitch so bring please bring it to the attention of someone that can at least acknowledge it's a problem that needs to be fix.

That may very well be an issue, but the screenshot is pointless as long as registration is still open.

I would argue that even if they did get the required runners to create a $3000 prize pool it's still a big deal. But what do I know.

No this is not correct. You are making some wild assumptions there XaQ. Just because there is 100bb min or even a 50bb min does not mean people will nit it up. However it does mean more money on the table which can never be a bad thing.

While your 3rd sentence may be correct, that doesn't mean that my statement is incorrect. Still, increasing the min buyin amount is a bad idea.

You would have to contact your operator about this, as cashier issues are up to the individual operator.

Thanks for this. You are right that even if the player pool does > the gtd, it should still be reflected as the correct gtd.

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

Hi there, I currently work in NY but live in NJ, with family and friends in NY. I just got off the phone after verifying my NJ address and the representative said I could not log on and play while in the state of NY.

So I can't play while I'm over at my family or friends on my laptop?

Take this to the UN, it's a travesty.

You talked to the site and they said no, what does asking 2+2 do for you?

ROW can't play while visiting the U.S. without breaking the TOS, so it seems like a standard line to take to bar people from playing in restricted areas.
