*** Official Run It Once Poker Thread ***

Hey, ladies and gentlemen of 2+2,

I'm Phil Galfond, long-time 2+2er and first-time poker site operator

Run It Once Poker is opening its doors on Wednesday, February 6th.

I've written quite a bit about our features, policies, and beliefs as a company. You can find all of my posts (as well as a bunch of other details once we launch) at runitonce.eu.

To sum them up:

We are trying to bring something new to the online poker world with the goal of creating solutions to industry problems that, as poker players, we're all too familiar with. We're trying to build the poker site that we'd want to play on.

As part of that goal, we want to remain transparent and engaged with the community. That's you!

On that topic, I'd like to introduce our aptly named Community Engagement Manager, RunItOnce Nick. He (and I) will be in here answering questions, taking suggestions, and hiding from angry trolls.

As I mentioned in my last pre-launch post, I will really appreciate each and every one of you who plays a few hands and lets us know what you think. Looking forward to talking to you all about this project that we've been working so hard on!

,
Phil

------

Edit/MH: NB An important further note from Phil:

"I highly recommend everyone take a couple of minutes and read this before playing: https://help.runitonce.eu/kb/known-issues-beta/

It takes 2 minutes and may save you some headaches!"

Re: *** Official Run It Once Poker Thread ***

Thanks for the introduction Phil.

Hi everyone,
As Phil mentioned, I’m the Content and Community Engagement Manager for Run It Once Poker, some of you may know me from Discord or the Run It Once Training forums. I’m looking forward to expanding my role and interacting with the 2+2 community. (except the angry trolls )

The past week our office has been full of excitement. On Thursday, Phil shared our rake numbers and introduced our unique, primary rewards program, “Splash the Pot.” In case you missed it, we will be “splashing” 51% of the collected rake back onto the tables randomly ranging from 1bb to 1,000 bbs. Keep in mind, the majority of the splashes will be small amounts. You can check out Phil’s full post here:


Yesterday, we dropped the news everyone has been waiting for… Our official launch date! As Phil mentioned, on Wednesday, we will be opening our doors to the public for the first time. The amount of support we’ve received over the last 24+ hours is truly incredible. If you’ve been following our project check out Phil’s post: “A Poker Site.”


With this news, we’ve also been receiving questions, questions, and more questions. The first thing I’d like to point out is the list of countries that will NOT be allowed to play on Run It Once Poker.

BLOCKED COUNTRIES:
Afghanistan, Australia, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Colombia, Czech Republic, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany (State of Schleswig-Holstein), Greece, Guyana, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Uganda, United States of America, Vanuatu, Yemen

Here is a quick answer to 3 other FAQs so far:

1) When can I download the client?
I will make a post in this thread when it’s available.
2) Which deposits options are available in my country?
Payout options are country specific, please be patient and wait until you’re able to access our cashier.
3) Where can I find some details on the streamR program?
We’re in the process of updating our website and all the information you need will be available soon. We'll be providing a helpful set up guide for new streamRs, as well as an overlay. I will drop a comment in here when this is available.


Now that those are addressed if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions fire away. I will do my best to stay on top of replies but please keep in mind I will be busy answering questions across many networks.

I’m stoked for Wednesday and looking forward to hearing what you guys think of our software. Good luck!

- Nick

Hey Nick, do you have or plan to make a mobile version in the near future? Seems like a big leak in today’s world if there isn’t a mobile version. Thanks and Keep up the good work

Best of luck Phil!

Any information on if you are working on getting licenses for some of the banned countries? Seems like a lot of the ones that are on the list are the ones that are segregated/ have it's own non-.com operator with regards to PokerStars, so I guess it's based on negotiations with the said government.

Will you be working with affiliates such as rakeback.com or raketherake etc? Will you be adding rake races or other incentives?

Thank you!

Yeah, we need to grow quite a bit before we apply for licenses in the segregated markets. We need to focus all of our energy on the global market for now, and that includes our resources. Not only do you need to pay for licensing, but you need to come in swinging with a very large marketing budget in order to pick up the necessary liquidity in the smaller markets.

TY! They did, but there are still some kinks to work out. Perfecting this platform will be an ongoing process, but I'm proud of where the app is at now - very fun to play on imho

There is one, I was a beta tester, but I couldn't install it because my OS X version was too old.
@RIO: What's the minimum OS X version required for the mac client?

First of all I'm happy that you put all this work into this and I wish you a smooth launch of your poker site.
Second I'd like to know what are your plans about including Greece in the near future as I'd like to join you.

Re: *** Official Run It Once Poker Thread ***

Can you specify software allowed during client open?

Obv any type gto solvers is big no no, but is equity calculators like PokerStrategy Equilab allowed?

I assume "complex" (3 dimensions+) charts is allowed?

What happens if a person connects through VPN from one of the blocked countries?

Quite a few testers were more concentrated on breaking things than actually playing A huge thank you to all of our testers!

We don't have a mobile client at this time, but it is a pretty high-priority item on our development roadmap.
