You can go to Caesars to withdraw.

Why not start earlier, say 19:05 with 10 minute levels to give the players a little more play, or a few more starting chips? How about a compromise, like the $750 GTD Turbo Deep with 6 minute levels with 5,000 starting chips?

Will the other two also start this late? Consider the time zone.

Poker Night in January at the Golden Nugget in AC? Thought 888 was in partnership with Caesars? Does this mean 888 is changing allegiance or no control where Poker Night goes?
I have sent your suggestions over to the team for you.

Thanks

The 888 structures jump far too quickly. I agree that WSOP should speed their structures up just a bit (perhaps adding antes a few levels earlier), but 888 shouldn't have 25/50 jump to 50/100 when you start most of their tournaments with only 3k in chips.

I like the 888 structure. I really don't think a level between 50 and 100 would do much except slow down tournaments that take too long already. Honestly I'd like to see every tourney with a $10 or lower buyin be a turbo, no need to play for hours and hours for a first prize of 100 bucks.

I would be ok with that only if they added more tournaments to the schedule. Right now you can't find more than 3 tournaments of $3-$10 buy ins running at the same time during the day.

But since they don't advertise those tournaments as turbos currently, the structure should be slower. Cutting stacks in half after 3 levels just completely changes the dynamics.

We are having trouble validating your location at this time. To retry, please exit and log in again. If you continue to receive this message, you can select play money in the lobby, or try the mobile app.


I keep getting this. Seconds after, when I exit the software, reload it, and log in I'm told in a message I am eligible to play. This means that the problem is with the 888 software since it detects my location ONLY after it is reloaded. You need to to either fix it or factor that certain players are victims of "false positive" results to the validation routine.

If I'm playing 3 to 5 hours at a clip day after day the software should recognize the validation "flag" as bogus.

This seems odd to me with 888 working under the Caesars license. Is there a change coming that you'll be affiliated with GN instead of Caesars? If so, will there be any noticeable changes for players?
PNIA is a separate company that's allowed to tape anywhere they deem fit, even though 888 is sponsoring their show. 888 NJ is still affiliated with Caesars/Ballys and has no affiliation with Golden Nugget.

Can you please give support a phone call and explain these issues to them and they will be able to advise you more.

Thanks

yeah, i guess 10k sounds nice; but only $640 up top with this many entries. 6 min levels add some speed, so maybe not too bad.

Yeah but min cash is $12, which beats the heck out of a lot of them that are only $1 or so.

Yeah but we can agree that this payout structure also sucks. No reason to pay out 30% of the field. The min cash could be so much better if this was a reasonable payout structure and the up top prize could be 4 figures. Min cash should be at least double what it is on a normal 18% payout structure.

Here's the thing though... even if I disagree with how a company does things if I csn look at it from their perspective and understand why they are doing something a certain way I can live with it.

As a player I agree with you, but from their perspective it's a freeroll and the more people that get paid the more customers they make happy by giving them something back.

I get why they did it that way as well, but it's just kind of lame when a $10k freeroll offers a little more than double the top prize that a $1k freeroll offers on the same site. If it does something to increase the player pool by 10 or 20% then it's worth it to me. But let's be honest, it isn't going to happen because of one weekend of free giveaways.

Why does your software not have a sng filter for PLO games? It is clogging up your softwares lobby. I say your software because it is occurring on wsop, but they are impossible to get in touch with so thought I would ask here.
