Re: FTP Answers 10/15

Doug, FYI, changing the min buy-in from 20 BBs to 30 BBs would make a huge huge difference in the short stacking problem. Just thought I'd mention that if you didn't know it.

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

Stop implementing stupid new games and start getting the RSA tokens working. 2-3 years of working on it and you guys really believe it's going to be ready next update? Doug I know you have no say on this but please pass on that 95% of us here would do happy without any update for 6 months if you got the RSA tokens working.

Don't worry Doug. There is a clear answer for the fullstacker come January 1st.
Yeah, we really need to hear something about the shortstack issue soon. Glad to hear it's being discussed and on the radar, but something a bit more specific would be nice.

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

Just to let you know.. FTP lost five players that generated over 100k rake/yr. I'm sure half a million is not alot to full tilt. but i'm sure more will join pokerstars if shortstack fest is not handled.

If you think the shortstacker issue isn't the same (or perhaps worse) on Stars, then you're incredibly naive.

It's not, but that's neither here nor there. People are leaving FT.

What is the short stacking problem? (I only play MTTs so I'm not familiar....but I am curious!)

Shortstacks are ridiculously easy to avoid on Stars. Stars offers 50BB min tables that casual players enjoy, so there's always at least 3x as many running as Tilt has deep tables.

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

im sure my post got lost in the mix last time

please add some O8 fixed limit MTTs

right now the only options are the $5 O8 MTTs... and the $69+6 O8 MTT (which i think is monthly?)

how bout a daily or weekly guarantee somewhere in between? how bout changing one of the many $5s to $10 + 1? how about a nightly $24+2??

has to be something you can do for the o8 fixed limit players higher than $5... (i know i know... lol limit)

I will be moving the majority of my play over to Stars to start the new year if FTP doesn't do anything to address the short stack problem.

And yes, I am another 100k rake/yr player.

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

I get the invalid bet amount bug several times a day everyday because I play a lot on ante tables. You can reproduce the issue pretty easily if you just go and play ante tables for a while. It's a pretty annoying bug.

+1

I've generated over 70k in rake at FTP this year already (let alone how much I generated last year when I played there almost exclusively). But in the last few months I've moved about 30% of my play to stars. the only thing that keeps me from moving more is that I'm not going to be able to get SNE this year. that changes jan 1.

and the SSer problem is not as bad on stars simply because more 50bb min tables run, and you can sit at these tables and you can sit at these tables and open as many as you want so that they fill the lobby and the site won't kick you off after 10 min if you've left your pc. in the games I play usually 60%+ of the tables running are 50bb min on stars, on ftp I rarely see more than 25% of the games running as deep tables.

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

Do you have any plans for a SNE type program so people can get more than 25% rake?

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

What happened to the MHE tables? Maybe the stake ratio was a little off, but they were finally gaining steam, and now they've been removed. Honestly, 4:1 is a decent ratio...though it generally tends to make the typical LHE pots quite a bit bigger than the typical NLHE ones. Please bring them back.

Re: FTP Answers 10/15

The run it twice feature seems like a great idea, but the additional rake for running it twice is absurd. Except at the micros, most allin pots will hit the $3 rake cap, so increasing the cap to $4 is equivalent to charging $1 every time people run it twice. Are we supposed to believe that the extra bandwidth and electricity required for Fulltilt's servers to deal an extra turn and river cost a whole dollar? Of course not. This is clearly just a blatant grab for money, and as a long term loyal customer of Fulltilt I am offended by this.

Why? First off, you don't have to run it twice at all. It's just an option and they are charging extra rake for it. Don't like it don't run it twice and just play as you have been for the past X years.

I can't see how having the choice to do it is bad. Of course people don't want to pay extra rake but these are not non-profit sites.

FTPDoug please get a weekly PLO8 $216 MTT on your schedule, run it an hour after the $216 PLO weekly. Thanks!

LOL at rake-it-twice, what a scam. Why not rake the money players get when they use the cashout feature in those new tourneys? What next, extra rake during happy hour?

Sorry but this isn't good enough. Go check out the NL100 FR tables right now and try not to throw up. There are 3-5 shorstackers on just about every single non deep table with some of them having 7-8 shorstackers. This is a serious problem that continues to get worse. I play 12 tables at a time for 6-8 hours a day and if this problem is not addressed soon, I too will be leaving FTP and will split my play between UB (all deep tables, but not enough traffic to play there exclusively) and PS (much wider selection of tables, better customer service, etc). And this isn't a threat, it's a fact. The infestation of shorstackers is turning your site into an unplayable joke.

The shortstacking problem is literally worse at Stars. Usually 2-3 at every table. Also, there is always a long waiting list for games; the list are all shortstackers.
