Re: Official FTP Fix The Deep Tables Thread

When people moan about not having a ring game filter, FTP drones who don't play online poker misunderstand and you end up with this crap. *** the idea of a ring game filter (i mean really, are people having trouble finding their games, really???) and just go back to what it was and never change anything again you FTP clowns.

nobody here has a problem with fishes buying in for 60bb. But we want them to have a pleasant experience while losing their $$ through the artful moves of multi-street poker instead of having to suffer to mindless robotic mecanics of 20bb deep play.

I agree completely. I will be echoing the sentiment here to my contacts at FTP.

It's more that without randoms joining deep tables they won't run and the regs wan't to be able to play tables without 20 bb shovebot ratholers (and I don't think the randoms actually prefer the normal tables, they are just easier to find in the lobby right now).

i dont care if the fish buys in deep. i just want them at deep tbls so SSers cant join. we arent asking FTP to do something so that more fish come to deep tbls than 100bb tbls...just so that the deep tbls have an equal chance of getting fish as the 100bb ones do.

I'm not buying that fish are having a more pleasant time losing their money at deep tables, but:

I do concede this as a reasonable point if you're simply saying a large percentage of the deep stacker table players didn't intentionally go to a deep stack table in the first place. I can see where overall volume might be pushed down in this case.

Re: Official FTP Fix The Deep Tables Thread

Signed. I have also sent an e-mail to FTP too.

I want to make it clear that I want deep tables BACK IN THE SAME MIX AS NON-DEEP TABLES. I'm saying this because I know FTP will try to do some half-ass compromise and put deep tables in their own section that is closer to non-deep tables or something. No, FTP: put it back to how it was before.

There is no reason that people will accidentally join deep tables now that they have the icon next to them anyway.

This is also a huge, huge deal to me as deep tables are why I play at FTP: I am playing at PS until this is fixed and see no reason to play at FTP if it is ignored.

Yeah, as soon as I opened ft I got concerned with this.

Deep tables need to be mixed with normal tables. Fix this ASAP!!!

fish go to the first open seat available. the reason the deep tbls mostly filled w/ fish before was because there was an open seat at a deep tbl so the fish, not caring whether he played 100bb or 200bb tbls just took the seat. now if he scrolls down the same list he stumbles on to 100bb only tbls and just takes the open seat, never even making it down to the deep tbls which are also below the CAP tbls.

Exactly. There are far fewer deep tables running now as a result. The new FT system actively channels the ALL the fish into the 100 BB tables and away from the deep ones. They couldn't have come up with a better system to help out the 20 BB shortstack pushbots if they tried.

I do believe that most people who have qualms with your previous post in this thread will mostly be worried about this. I have been watching the 200nl short handed games most of the afternoon here (EST) and comparatively there were very few deep tables running, mostly just filled with regulars. It seems that separating these table types has generated an even greater imbalance between the table types than normal.

It may be true that the fish usually don't buy in for full stacks, but if the fish aren't actively trying to buy-in for 200bb (they don't really care either way) they are going to just sit down at the most convenient location.

Re: Official FTP Fix The Deep Tables Thread

100% agree with this thread. mix them back in with the normal tables. there's no variation in the game, like Cap tables, so no need to seperate them.

Agreed, FTP thanks for the attempts at software improvements but please don't shut out the deepstack games.

Re: Official FTP Fix The Deep Tables Thread

I don't see the problem.

The deepstack are right next to the normal ones in my lobby when I open it. I see the full ring games and directly under it the deep stack games. They are just clearly marked now as deep stack.

Whats the problem? you don't want them to be marked as deep stack? I don't see how someone would miss them and can't choose to sit at one if they wanted. I am just guessing they choose not too.

No, we want them to have a chance to appear at the start of the list, since most fish just take the first available seat at the top without caring whether the table is 100 or 200 BB deep. It's unfair to channel the fish into the 100 BB tables this way, just as it would be unfair to channel them into the 200 BB tables if those were listed first. They should be randomized, like they used to be.
