I doubt it's legal but the profits are real

How can you find out for sure? I've searched for a while and found nothing about it. I even know club owners paying taxes on the profits.

Re: PPPoker Discussion Thread

It was a good read and the poster seems pretty knowledgeable.

I also am awaiting the run out proof. I want to see the three flop cards in exact same order as well.

Shuffle a deck of cards and deal out 7 cards in a row.

Now shuffle again and what are the odds they come out in the exact same order?

My math might be off but I think it is 1/(52*51*50*49*48*47*46) or 1.5 times out of a trillion trials.

Still not proof of a rig but show me that run out 3 or 4 times..

If you run a home game and collect rake is that legal?
If there is a digital loophole then good for everyone.

Curious to know what secure app owners are moving to.

Yeah, these big "I'm about to post proof guys" lead-ups are lame, and almost never result in anything. Maybe this will be the exception.

Definitely not; cherry-picking like this always skews those odds in an extreme way. Count all the billions of hands where this doesn't happen and of course no one posts about it, and suddenly it's not such a longshot.

Yeah, that would definitely be of interest. As would 2 in a row if there are other anomalies to go with them.

Just post the evidence, and don't bother coming back with more anecdotes.

The reality is that no one knows for sure. The way that the app is legal is it doesn't run games in money but in chips. Thats the novel approach that caused poker boom in many countries where poker has been illegal.

So you play in chips and basically you and the host/agent of the club agree that each chip is worth X $ and thats how it runs.

So much in the same way USA guys after Black Friday were playing home games play money on pokerstars and just agreeing among themselves that each play chip is worth X $/cents. There were huge clubs and people won milions $ in Pokerstars play money home games.

Re: PPPoker Discussion Thread

Please tell me if I have this correct.

Essentially you play with play money chips that your agent gives value to, right? So what is the point of giving chips to the virtual dealer as a tip and who gets to keep those chips if you do tip the virtual dealer? Why is tipping in online poker a thing?

Don’t think anyone gets that money that you would tip. You just get less on your next cashout from agent. I doubt you’d see many players using this feature since you’re just torching the money.

You aren’t tipping money. You’re tipping diamonds

You have to pay real $ from the Apple store to get diamonds. Diamonds allow you to throw emojis at people, throw stuff at the dealer and get an extended time bank (the real thing worthwhile)

My recommendation is to buy a VIP card that way you get free emojis to use. It’s super tilting to be hit with a pile of crap after you lose a 1k pot. And also hilarious.

<3 pppoker.

I do all my cash games there, leave tourneys for ignition.

Yes, I imagine they will, and if anyone gets such PMs, I'd love to hear about them.

In case anyone's not clear on this, PMing someone with your affiliate/agent deals is every bit as unacceptable as posting them is - and PPPoker affiliates are the current champs when it comes to spamming our forums.

You have to wait til that table shuts down completely. You will see the countdown timer in the upper right corner. If the game is still full and the club is paying attention they will buy more time and keep the table open longer, so it's completely possible the same table could be open for a week and you'd never be able to change your buyin.
