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

Really awesome to see the release finally being here. GL! Would have been there tomorrow if i could.

Kind of sucks for us Swedes though, i waited for this site since 2016 and then it releases 1 month after Sweden gets it new regulation so we become a restricted country.

Ah well hoping for that license soon.

Hi Zorac,

We are in the process of preparing a licence application for Sweden. I'll be sure to share any news if and when we have an update.

Repost from the other thread, since we were asked to post support questions/issues in this one:

Hey Phil,

I understand that you're unable to offer crypto deposits at present due to regulations, but please have your payments team look into the possibility of allowing Israeli players to use WebMoney deposits. There are many of us over here who are hyped for RIO and at present there's no deposit method that we can use.

Also, I've heard Steiner say that you won't allow player to player transfers. Is this a set policy or just a temporary measure? I'd like to hear the reasoning behind this decision.

Regardless of any of this, good luck to you, sir. I would love to see you give Stars a run for their money in the short term and eclipse them in the long one.

Thank you!

Regarding Player Transfers - as a poker player, I very badly want to offer p2p transfers. Our regulators won't allow us to, but, along with crypto deposits, we are petitioning for them.

Trust me, almost anything about our platform at launch that you think we should improve, I already know about and agree with you

Hey Phil,

Therefore you really might considering re-building rakeback system in the future, and here is why I think so.
I agree with you that a little bit of innovation & variance is desirable, but look how it might look in practice.

You state that by volume most of the added RB "splashes" will be spreaded through smaller pots and that will just make game a little bit spicier, which is great. However I imagine that by value most % of the RB will be distributed by those ~500-1000bb pots;
Making an example: at a 1000bb added pot, it will be EV+ (high variance but still EV+) to stack almost ATC pre 6-way in those cases and I think it will be just a matter of time before all of the players will do so, hence your pinch of variance in RB system really turns into frequent high variance situations (in terms of RB).

Couldn't care less as I'm MTT/SNG player, though it's highly appreciated if you'd consider any system not beginning with splash/spin/jackpot/etc in those games

Not agreeing with your approach to HUD/tracking systems neither.

It's hard to deny you best intentions and commitment so I wish you all the best with your site and I look forward how the things will develop.

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

So what's wrong with having 1 hand to be a 6 way flip? Just adjust the frequency of 1000 bb Splash with smaller splashes so that they're balanced. It was said that smaller splashes will be A LOT more frequent.

Why would you imagine this? This is extremely unlikely. 1k bb probably will be super rare, almost like a lottery win.

I made an example of extreme situation. I also hope it will not happen that frequent, I just wanted to indicate leaning into still bit variational rewarding players system, highly criticized at other rooms, which might influence gameplay.
I'm sorry I don't want it to look like I'm moaning and complaining before site even launches, it's just my remark on the system
Cheers

So couldn't care less but just had to say something? Esp coming from a sng/mtt player that's just stupid.

And if you don't agree with the aproach regarding huds then you should keep playing the sites that allows them. Like any other site. People just need to stop moaning about things that are the base of riopoker. Like the anonymity and being unable to use trackers.

Pretty much this. If you need to flip once in a bluemoon for 1000bb so be it. But the tilt when those aces gets cracked makes it even more +ev to jam any2/4. Maybe kappa.

You can download hands after 24hrs so hand tracking will be possible.

I believe this is a feedback thread where people are allowed to express their thoughts and opinions, which I did, to be clear - with good intentions.

If you don't agree with mine or you think it's stupid it's ok but I don't see anything constructive coming from your post neither.

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

This isn't just for RIO, but why would sites want to offer p2p transfers? It just seems like it adds a lot of liability for the sites in terms of monitoring for cheating and money laundering vs a small potential boost in liquidity.

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

Hey guys I know there's no SNG's or MTT's at launch but they obviously won't be effected by STP anyways... Can you give us a sneak peak at what you're thinking for rake(back) in those formats?

I honestly think if you have sub-10% rake for reg speeds and less than that for turbos/hypers you will not even need to offer rakeback for MTTs. Just gotta beat partypoker because they do have the rakeback with low-ish rake.

I will depo on Wed regardless and blast off in some PLO cash mostly. Good luck guys.

Did you notice how Phil said "As a poker player" before he said he really wants this.

Some of us find them extremely convenient for moving/trading money, especially when it's large amounts and/or time sensitive and it has nothing to do with cheating or money laundering in 99.9% of cases.

Will we be missing out on anything by signing up direct? Rake races/extra rakeback or whatever.
