Anyone else having issues with today's challenge? I paid for insurance, lost the hand and received the insurance payout but the challenge hasn't shown up as completed.

Have you read any of this thread? That would probably be a good place to start, and then come back with any specific questions.

They should be more transparent with that. That obviosly doesnt motivate regs to grind since u can have 10% rakeback even if u put trash volume. Disappointed!!

Re: GGNetwork: Natural8, etc

It looks ggpoker is making sure no one completes all 30 honey money challenges.

Two days ago the challenge was "Come first in a bounty tournament" before that was "Run it three times and win all three times". The latest "Play all in or fold holdem and win vs pocket jacks." You could literally play thousands of hands and never run into this scenario.

They're going to make it almost impossible to get all 30/30 challenges and extremely difficult to hit even the 25/30 bonus. What a garbage promotions.

I really think this is scam, because when you read the promotion it says 30 easy to achieve missions, winning a ****** tournament which there are only about 12 per day is a scam. Im sure at the end only 0-2 people will win the ****** 150$

Re: GGNetwork: Natural8, etc

I was reviewing my friend playing the 500yuan game (or whatever it is, like 128nl)

Every time he joined at table (he had to rejoin due to it freezing on "waiting for players" several times) he would miss his first BB 100% of the time, also somehow every time he sat out on BB (only 3-4 times in the video) he was sat out within 2 hands, including back to back bb's

I told him to prob stop playing there or at least move to reg tables bc the forced resets put him in violation of the anti ratholing rule, i'm just hoping their software is ****ty but take it as you will

Yeah, I have the same issue. CPU usage is ridiculous. Wish there was a way to reduce it by turning off animations or something

Hey,
why not offering a downgraded version of the client for people who´d like to have that? Without all the CPU-infesting Sounds, Animations and stuff.

Re: GGNetwork: Natural8, etc

GG has become a lot worse over the last ~10 months. & their actions are very questionable. Even Buehlero confirmed that they are banning winning players (some of his friends too).

Also the fish buffet is the biggest joke.. I was playing there ~500 mtts and out of all my spins Ive never hit the biggest one, just never.. It was always the lowest or 2nd lowest, but almost always the lowest. One of my friend who is playing there almost everyday had the same experience.

Their 30 day challenge is also a pretty funny joke. Id bet that no one will it over the next 12 months.

Also the rakeback got increased from 5 % to ~12 % even for turbos. Sattelites which didnt have rake, do now have rake. It feels like Amaya 2.0

Re: GGNetwork: Natural8, etc

So I tried to do a withdrawal today on GG and it said that I have to deposit even though I already had. Well according to one of their Discord reps, due to a backed issue anyone who hasnt deposited since Jan 28th and wants to do a cashout needs to depo again.

Not only that but they have removed the bitcoin option from the cashier.

This leaves 2 options; credit card and paysafe but as you cannot withdraw to paysafe afaik that leaves only the credit card option and as a Canadian I'm not sure that will work. I've reached out to their cashier to see what can be done.

Pretty unhappy with GG right now obviously and wondering how many hoops I will have to jump through to get my funds if at all.

Re: GGNetwork: Natural8, etc

Is the tournament leaderboard just for MTTs or are there some other games included in that promotion?
Big cash game festival coming in March by looks of things for that chinese rush thingy
Think that 30 day challenge behavior is very disappointing

Re: GGNetwork: Natural8, etc

Here is the summary of GG poker rake structure for holdem:
5% rake + 2.2% for jackpot
On your most fishbuffet spins you get 10% sometimes higher. So it is around 15% rakeback.
For the jackpot, i calculated that i get back around 1%ish.

So if we substract the rakeback, we pay around 5,25% rake. It is as bad as pokerstars. How regulars play holdem cash games on that site is beyond my understanding. It is really hard to beat.
Omaha is better though. It is around 3.5%.

Unfortunately they are not transparent with their rakeback structure. Most people are not aware of the jackpot structure either. Whole fish buffet thing is pretty ridiculous.

As last words, expect to have rakeback between 10% to 20%. Mostly around 15% rakeback.

No idea why you thought I needed to chill out, as my answer was intended to be nothing more than friendly and helpful. I was perfectly chilled out when I wrote it, but thanks for your concern.

I wasn't suggesting he read the "whole fkn thread", but reading the last few pages would give him some answers to "Is the site safe ? or is it a big scam?", much more so than asking those general questions does. The fact that he's had zero responses since mine would seem to back me up on this.

No, I think it's usually a better idea to do a little reading and then ask more specific questions - that's why I suggested he do so.

But thanks for this hot take over 6 weeks later, where you take me to task for providing an answer, which is more than you did for him.

New development - top high-stakes pro Mmasherdog has claimed his GGpoker account, with $25k in it, was simply deleted.

He can no longer access it and the funds are gone.

Says they just got rid of the account without any notice also.
