Yes, you can p2p transfer in the software, but you can also do a bitcoin p2p and have the coin sent directly to your SwC account.

What do you have to offer in exchange for bitcoin or SwC money?

I'm not looking to trade, just trying to explain what I meant.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

Right, if you want to purchase bitcoin yourself with a bank or credit card then either use Circle or Coinbase online, or possibly LibertyX to pay with cash in person.

Or you can find someone to trade with... like $100 from another poker site for $100 worth of bitcoin.

It will pick up in September. I was a quasi regular but now I come home all sunburnt and drunk from the beach everyday and don't feel like playing. I also know a couple of friends that got felted who think they will be back.

Stay patient and get your bitcoins all fired up imo

LOL, I agree. I want to play, but everyday I have to make the choice of having fun outside in the sun or poker. And then at night it's drinking a beer and hanging around the fire pit or poker.

Poker doesn't win that fight much. But I will be back to playing a lot more soon.

They have P2P transfers so you can either buy BTC and deposit it or send money to someone with Seals chips and they can transfer them to you directly. Like other, I haven't played as much during the summer, but I still open some mid/high draw/mix tables a couple times a week and try to start games, but then usually end up joining the 2-7 table w the guy who sits at them all day, as I don't have a ton of time to sit and wait for action. Like others have said, the games will pick up again within a couple weeks.

Just open craigslist and do a search for bitcoins and some guy will come by your house, take your $50 and load your wallet with $50 worth of bitcoin. If you trust people online you can also do it online, just don't deal with any russians or chinese.

You need a bitcoin wallet which again is just a link like .. ajdjsd324342 and when you want to send bitcoins to seals you just send to your specific seals account asksdjd393939 address.

Once its on the site you can transfer chips between players.


Yes traffic is slow because its summer in the US and Canada and that is the majority of the site traffic. People are away or would rather be on the beach. But I see nothing wrong with this. I would prefer a site with a few hundred players over a million because you can keep track of people better and there are less sharks good players.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

This software is junk and I tried to use windows compatibility checker and can't run because the program .exe is hidden in users account folder instead of the program folders. Why is this???

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker



Some glitches in OFC Pineapple, my winning hand was fouled and not able to complete last draw. I emailed support and they responded by giving me 60 chips, so my hand is a 50 point winner but this seems arbitrary. I don't think this is fair, I think I should receive max potential points in this situation as their game integrity is in question.

Here's their response:

"xxxxx,
We reviewed the hand in question. While we can't assume you would have caught perfectly, and would have won the maximum, we do agree that compensation is in order. We've awarded you 60 chips.

Regards"

If you “can’t assume I would have caught perfectly” then how can you assume that I wouldn’t?! This is why you must award the max potenetial score in this situation; to protect the image of integrity in your games. To assure me that if your software messes up, I’m not taking the worst of it.

What do you guys think?

At first glance, that sounds correct.

1 Bitcoin = $268 (at the moment) You may have paid more or less.

1 Bitcoin = 1000 chips at SwC (always)

You deposited less than 1/10th Bitcoin

Looks like bedulis only had 7 points of action left for the hand, and for whatever reason it went to Orcfi. That's the number in the parenthesis. I.E. you already won the most you could from him due to his short stack and yours.

You are welcome.

SwC is the most fun I have ever had playing internet poker, and that included years at Stars.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

As for the other hand, I don't know if a replayer screenshot is a reliable indicator of what actually happened in the hand. It may rely on the text hand history, which can become garbled if you get disconnected. Does 60 not seem fair? You could have won 82 at most if the hands were accurate, and you caught two one-outers on the end.

The easiest is just to take the current price of bitcoin / 1000 and that should get you the value of a single chip. So 74 chips at .26$ per chips sounds about right 74x0.26 = about $19

Anyone have luck getting SWC to work in parallels (Win7 or XP)? Support is unresponsive for several months.
