Pretty excited to try out the software. Will there be a first deposit bonus available tomorrow?

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

Hello Phil. What will be the deposit methods available for Canadians?

Is it possible we get echecks like Pokerstars? If we could also deposit by interac e-mail transfer, it would be amazing, this is the quickest way to move money between banks instantly all across Canada and virtually 0 fee. There are some 3rd party wallet like MuchBetter that supports interac e-mails transfer, other poker sites offer that but you could just have something built in the cashier also.

Deposit methods are so important, IMO.

When will sit & go’s be added? I’m sure to play there once you have them.

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

Hi Phil,

First of all, best of luck with the site. Even though I don't play on Stars anymore, the direction they've taken the site in the last few years with making every KOs/turbos/a rake trap has been terrible for poker imo so please don't do something similar!

Secondly, apologies if this has been covered but what's your plan for HU/HUSNGs? If there will be HUSNGs in due course, what style lobby do you plan on implementing? Blind lobby? King of the hill?

Lastly, if there's one feature about Stars I love as a bit of a degen it's the restrict buy-in one where you can limit what stakes you can play. Would love to see this on RIO.

I'll be depositing for sure this week, I can imagine you're worried about initial liquidity but I'm sure you'll be fine.

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.
Hi Menace,

Thanks for the feedback and for acknowledging that we've got the best intentions. Not everyone will like all of our decisions, and I appreciate you sharing your concerns respectfully!

I personally revisited and adjusted all of our STP configurations today. I can assure you that the majority of rewards come from splashes <15bb at all stakes.

We also had the same concern as you with the large flips, and we have some ideas about how to address it in the future, but for now, this is our system. I hope everyone enjoys it but we'll have to wait and see!

There WILL be a 1st deposit bonus. I think that you may miss out, Dustin, if you try to add more in your beta client (if it works). You'll probably need to DL a new client from the website once it's live anyways.

Thank you for testing with us and GL tomorrow!

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.
Thanks so much for bringing some action to the site even though we don't have your game of choice. It means a lot to me, genuinely.

I hope it won't take us too long to add them, but that depends in part on how launch goes!

Your suggestion is noted. We have some ideas, but we will keep listening and can always change things before they're fully built. Your suggestion is similar to one of the approaches we've discussed.

There isn't. One of the biggest items to not make it into our launch build is resizeable tables. We're working very hard on this.

We can't make any long-term promises, but I expect that if you do miss out on anything, it won't be too large and I think it will be outweighed by our promotions on the tables in month one.

No client software download. No response.

Login message link to signup to RIO site did not appear. No response.

This is getting TEDIOUS.

Interesting to see a new competitor on the market, hopefully they can expand to more non-NLHE games in the future

Hi there Phil,

Any concerns about how your current Rake back with the splash pots favours anyone that is short stacked on the table and the possiblity that rec players are going to be more likely to buy in short and wait for splash pots to look at getting it in with ATC, make the games less juciey for anyone playing the game semi seriously

no concerns there because you can't buy in short. You can only buy in with 100bb. Given that very most splashes will be small, bombing them with 50bb stack wouldn't work out anyway I guess.

Community manager Nick: at what time goes RIO live approx. ???
We need an answer to that. if you intend to go live in the evening, i don't want to wait all day (since today I actually have free time)

+1. Whatever RIO does for tournament rewards, please do NOT do what partypoker did in eliminating rakeback for most of its players like me who do not grind every single week to pay >= $25 rake in order to get any cashback. Like Phil Galfond said, "a poker site should value all its players", not just those who can grind every single week.

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

I'm getting an error 1016 from the UK.

EDIT: This has changed to an error 525 now. Servers problems at RIO end, right?

Scrap all that. Everything seems fine now.

Please write here when it is live and when someone is starting to stream it on Twitch. Or if you know at what hour will be live, write it here, compare it to my posted time. Thanks

Hey Phil,
I am working on Cardmates - one of the most popular poker websites in Russian.
And I would love to have a small interview with you about Run It Once.
What do you think about it?
