Re: NEWS: Everleaf touches the untouchable - Lowers rake on all US$ tables to a $1 cap Nov1-Dec

B U M P

So we are one third the way through and I just want to optimistically say: I think we are on course to have a chance at making this $1 cap at least extended, if not made permanent! IMO we've been successful so far, at least what can be expected when all factors are considered. That pokerscout graph above is encouraging and it can only get easier guys, as starting it is expected to be the hardest part.

However, we are going to need to continue to make a strong push and build momentum EVERY DAY. I'm down, and I thank you all who have shown your support so far and just want to encourage you to keep it up and beyond just your own play, try and spread the word and bring a friend and get this place continuing to move forward so eventually the network will have no choice but to respond to the demand.

As a player for roughly 4 years on this network, I am really glad that this promotion is fairly successful. It would be even better if all the euro skins could see USD tables. I'm sure by the end of December there will be roughly a 20% increase in traffic.

Also for all the players who wish there was more traffic. Create tables and people will come. Usually if you start up a new table it will become full within 5 minutes.

So silly to not have all skins on all tables. Just losing rake paid.

This can not be overstated. It really is just-that-simple. I know because I did it, two days in a row after my sessions. If you do it during peak, you'll create games out of thin air, that likely will remain long after you've gone. They also are mostly filled by Euros and ROW players. I created 6 games within 10 mins that were not there before I sat one day. In fact, one time there where no US games at all before I started them. Recreational players (and it sounds like most players in general) need a game to be going to join it. If there's no game, there's nothing to join. Also, people are constantly moving tables and signing in looking for tables to join during peak. If US tables are available and going, they will join them.

We are coming up on half way through this guys. Try and dig deep if you need to and maybe even deviate from your comfort zone if that's what it means for you. But I guarantee not only will you learn something from it, you'll broaden your horizons, become a better player, and arguably most importantly contribute your part to having a say and having your voice heard in what is one of the major issues with poker and have a positive impact on it.

Everleaf has paved the road and given us our best chance to make that impact. They've even, before hand, stated multiple times that this could have an influence on the future and if successful, would possibly extend and/or make a $1 rake cap permanent.

How often do we get chances like this? I can't remember the last time and unfortunately I think it has a reverse effect if it's unsuccessful by conveying that people indeed don't care enough about rake or the amounts of money they pay to be able to play. This awareness and statement is even more important as Gov's like the US look to tax and regulate online poker. It could become unbeatable if we don't show that we care about our game staying profitable.

I'm broke for the most part as otherwise I would like to be a philanthropist and give out buy ins to people if I could, I sincerely feel that way, but as is I am, and will continue to do everything I can so if anyone needs any support, has a question, or needs me to join a table to get one fired up PM me and I'll gladly help. This is too important an issue and I believe worth any and all sacrifice, even though surprisingly I haven't had to sacrifice and have only benefited so far.

That is actually totally up to each skin. And there are by far more things to be considered than just "losing rake paid".

Re: NEWS: Everleaf touches the untouchable - Lowers rake on all US$ tables to a $1 cap Nov1-Dec

Starting later today, I'm going to be starting and playing any and all $ tables from the limits of NL/PL20, 50, and 100 for at least the next month. I will also be playing Omaha.

If you want someone to help you start a certain table, I'll probably sit before you need but if not PM me. I'm doing this because I don't make money anymore in poker but with the money saved, since I play and rake quite a bit, it should translate to profit even with ****ty luck.

I'll be available and playing these during peak and greater peak, I'm planning on 7 or 8am PST to 5pm PST. These are mostly filled with non Americans but I figured I'd let this thread know anyway in case someone has a specific table they want going and need a player.

PS. I will play all games so if you want to try and start a Stud or PLO8 or something, again let me know because I wont be watching nor starting those on my own but will play them if there's a request.

Re: NEWS: Everleaf touches the untouchable - Lowers rake on all US$ tables to a $1 cap Nov1-Dec

We had a lot of games going two days in a row when I was working it playing only $ tables and starting them etc.. Keep at it guys, I'll hopefully be back but my account is bust for now. I'm not doing well but am working my way through it and want to support low rake so I'll be back asap. The best times to start and play games is peak, many non- Americans join the games

Oh and yes, it was extended through January. It even says it when you open the client.

Good luck and happy new year!

I PM'd the guy who's organising the pokerstars sitout, to hopefully drum up action

if you wanna let people know in the cliffs thread or wherever, everleaf's $1 rake cap on USD tables is being continued in january. potentially a good place for striking players to play until it's over.

the ban on players earning >750 euros per week that people may have heard of, actually only applies to eur tables, not USD ones.

This is the future of poker.
I'll check out this network and if the software is decent and has a handful of plo tables running I'll definitely play there a fair amount.

Good job Everleaf.

Re: NEWS: Everleaf touches the untouchable - Lowers rake on all US$ tables to a $1 cap Nov1-Dec

I'm downloading the client through a reputable RB site and hoping to deposit via ACH. If unable to do that, will try prepaid CC, and Western Union as 3rd resort.

I have been playing primarily live recently, but love the opportunity to put some skin in the game and show support for what looks like a truly awesome gift from Everleaf. Never played there and never read reviews besides this thread so have nothing to base my decision off of outside of support, appreciation, and real desire to start clicking buttons more. Really look forward to grinding, clearing some bonus, and putting a penny into the piggy bank of online poker.

Nice side note was the DOJ declaring a few days ago that there is nothing illegal about playing online poker in the US and that they would only be concerned with states that have specifically made it a crime.

As of 12/31, the promo I see is 500% deposit bonus up to $2500 (presuming $500 deposit), 40% rakeback, and rake races, etc.

See you guys at the tables. I will be starting primarily between 10nl and 50nl, but will consider adding to roll if site seems manageable, or playing higher if I run well/get solid RB.

Thanks Everleaf....wish you guys the best and looking forward to paying you some rake in return for the awesome opportunity.

Happy New Years!

Just joined through an affiliate and received a welcome email from support.

I emailed support for instructions on depositing via Western Union. Will post when account is funded and I have confirmation of the deposit bonus.

Everleaf bank wires don't seem to be working atm, you should probably think about depositing with WU so you get the option of withdrawing with it.

They have several deposit bonuses to choose from and they clear at different rates and are released differently. You can figure out which is the best for you. Rake is weighted contributed and $1 rake = 10 points while 1 euro rake = 15 points.

The peak traffic is euro evening/night = US day.

I really appreciate that Thanks.

I'm never sure how I come off but I have the best intentions most of the time. It's not always the best way to go. I proved that the other night when I shared a health concern with a couple of people. One of those too much information things probably.

I just feel like we are all in this boat together. We all have our ambitions, dreams, struggles, adversity, and successes. I try and keep the bad in perspective because if you're reading this and your health is pretty good, you have a lot to be grateful for and are very fortunate I'm a person like anyone and make mistakes and struggle at times and have trouble seeing the bright side and focus on the negative. I'm doing the best I can to change that.

Again, appreciate you sayin. Happy new year, I hope its a good one for poker and the people in it!
