Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Haha. Kiddo, the issue is that I can't sign up, because my residential address apparently is over 50 characters (which it of course isn't).

How about you use your god damn brain and read what I wrote, and either don't post, or bring something more constructive to the table than "use the appropriate code" (which has no relevance whatsoever).

Hf at your $10-sng's, kthxbye.

I do have fun at my 10 dollar sngs, thank you. Have fun being flummoxed by a character limitation on your address. If you are too limited to solve that problem, your free 8 dollars will likely not be the last money you lose (I turned my free 8 dollars into just under a thousand and counting without need of a deposit, so yes because the checks cleared I have had fun playing the 10 dollar sngs... for fun)

p.s.- Use the appropriate code.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Let's try and keep it friendly guys. The point of this thread is to be informative. There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.

A red "!" and a text saying "you may enter up to 50 characters in this field" (I entered 10 letters and 2 digits).

....

Could an 888 rep please clear this out for me, I would appreciate that a lot. Wanna start playing asap. Thank you!
Glad you sorted it.

- The password issue is one that I'm still trying to get improved.
- Bonus Code Fields appear when you go to make your deposit.
- Not sure why you had the address issue. Can you expand on how you fixed it in case anyone else runs into the same problem?

Cheers

I've made this argument.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Just cashed out $4000 from my 888 account to moneybookers. Got the received funds e-mail. Checked in my account and 888 sent me $519.80. Not sure what is going on, there is a really long wait on the live chat so maybe others are having similar problems?

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Hey, this is more of a personal aesthetic request, but I find that having the bankroll balance shown directly in the lobby is not conducive for gaming and managing tilt etc.

I see it going up and down when I switch to the Lobby to get on more tables... Can we just have the balance only shown when we click on 'Balance' or under a cashier tab (basically only when we want to)?

Cheers.

It sounds as though it probably cashed out via your deposit methods.

When you cash out, your cash outs will be processed in the way you deposited by %'s.

So if you deposited X amount by Credit and X amount by Moneybookers, it will cash out via those same methods.

It is more thorough explained in the link below:

If this isn't the problem, please let me know.

Would be interesting to get more opinions on this. Personally, I prefer having it in the lobby so it saves having to open another page to check.

I definitely know where you're coming from though re: Managing Tilt.

I will second his motion to remove the balance from the main part of the client.

I have trained my eyes not to look at the top-right part of the client while I'm opening tables, but I would prefer it not be there at all.

Yep, I am from Sweden and my address contains an "─". Most Swedish addresses do. So that should probably be looked at/fixed, so that such characters are allowed, or have a different explanation than "Must contain less than 50 characters".

Haha, same here. I don't wanna see my balanace during sessions, it makes me a bit tilted if I see how much I'm down.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Would be awesome to have a security token... Any chance I just missed it at the store? Since the password has to be exactly 8 characters, I'm a bit worried for my roll.

Haven't missed it. It continues to be at the top of my list.

Haha, I've never been much for riggie theories but this day has blown my mind. I didn't know you could lose 20 all-ins in a row where you are ahead. I also didn't know that you could win 10 in a row where you are dominated (0,06 %) (not me).

Along with the thread about seizing inactive account funds, I'd conclude that 888 is a fairly shady network.

Anyone that grinds for long enough has days like that.
Posting on a poker forum is probably not wise if your mind has been blown, as people with blown minds tend to say things that can't be proved with actual facts. Such people end up looking a bit stupid, to be honest.
After taking a day off, and perhaps looking more carefully at, say, 100,000 hands, maybe you'll be able to isolate a particular pattern in the 888's random generation of cards.
I've noticed some anomolies in my stats in HEM (QQ winning 5% more often than AA; pocket threes only flopping a set 6% of the time, while KK setted up a whopping 20% of the time, lucky me) but those figures come from a database of 11,000 hands. But I've only had aces 53 times, so it's far too soon to detect any pattern. Indeed, there is no pattern in the short term, because the RNG generates random numbers. By the time I've played 100,000 or a million hands, I'm sure every pocket pair will have made sets about 12.5% of the time and that aces will clearly have the highest winrate.
A sample size of "10 bad beats" is a sample size worth nothing.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Wasn't able to log on recently to 888, had some weird issue. Called them up and they helped me get set back up and they also refunded the Step 2 Aussie Millions ticket I won as I missed the tournament because of log in issues. Logged on today with the $25 in the account.

Thank you to 888 for good service, I never asked for a refund all I did was mention it to the phone operator two days ago that I couldn't log on and had missed out on a tournament I was registered for, so I'm assuming operator sent it up to someone to see if I was entitled to a refund.

Hi,

I haven't yet played on 888 yet. There is one simple reason for this. For some reason, my Moneybookers email has to match the email I use on 888. The problem is that that is the email that goes to my phone and I don't want junk mail from your site going to it. Now, I know you're going to say to 'opt out' of the emails but I shouldn't have to. I sure don't have to have the same email on every other site. This needs to be fixed; it's not a difficult request.

Your moneybookers account can link to multiple emails, you can set this up in your profile so just add the email you registered with 888.

Also a lot of sites have this policy for obvious security reasons.
