Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

The only problem with the cash games is there are loaded with hit and runners. This is the major reason there is not a lot of action here. I get hit and run in every day. I think I am just going to play heads sngs on this site.

I've been getting some decent Badugi action huhu these days...

If you were to pick a triple to raise or check-raise every turn

with one draw left..

would the best hand to make that play.... JT9?

thoughts?

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

with current BTC exchange rate the minimum withdraw amount is 163$. can you please fix this, maybe relate it to mBTC instead of "chips"?

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

No, I can't. But if you email SWC, perhaps they'll consider it.

mBTC and SwC chips are just two different ways of saying the same thing.

It does seem like an issue that should be addressed though.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

I play on a MAC and for some reason SWC only works for me in bootcamp but not Parallels.

Anyone found a way to solve this?

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

I last added money to seals when btc @7500 only a couple weeks ago and told myself I would keep adding money every time bitcoin went down. I just want it to take one little dip but apparently it seems to go up everyday.

Now 20USDNL and 20USDPLO lowest stakes. Interesting.

I hope they keep the minimum w/d to 20 chips. Come on, if you have only 20 chips you should play!

yup, you are right. relating the min cashout to $/€ would make sense - otherwise they would need to moderate it everytime btc goes up and down. but why do I even bother, they put no work whatsoever in this.

I always adress reps even if there are none, trying to stay optimistic

Also, regarding the rake, I think SWC is like 3x better rake structure than Tiger gaming. I'm a 1/2 reg online for NLHE and PLO at betonline (yes, I am competition but hopefully you can still help me with honest answers), but I want to eventually do something else for a living, and so I am going into bitcoin and crypto currencies. However, I figure I might as well play some poker to help me score bitcoin, until I can do something else totally.

So I've done hours of research in finding bitcoin sites (*******.ag is shady with withdrawals), nitrogen sports has no fish there it seems other than at the micros, so now looking at SWC poker... I don't know anything about limit games as I never play them, but I know the rake is MUCH better at SWC poker than betonline (and betonline is beatable, but you have to be very good, unfortunately), just by looking at the comparison.

AND they are offering 50% rakeback for hu and 3 handed?? I've never seen anything that good before!
I'm in the same situation, I play low-midstakes NLHE-PLO-O8 and I'm looking for a bitcoin/alt room with no cash out issues, no high rake e good rakeback deal. Did you found anything better? Doesn't matter if shows USD balance, instead of btc. Thank you

Aren't we all. It's not like there are any fiat rooms that meet that description right now either. I'd say "and I want a pony" but at least my BTC bankroll has increased in value enough that I could buy a pony if I really wanted one.

My only hope is that patience will lead to some sort of change in the industry. It doesn't ever seem to stay the same very long.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

From the SwC rep at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?to...57#msg25747557

Regarding TwoPlusTwo, they asked us for a monthly payment to continue answering questions on their forum and they did not accept Bitcoin.
I'm guessing there was a miscommunication here, as from my understanding site reps are allowed to post in these threads without charge.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

I guess so, although I have no idea what the miscommunication would have been. SealsWithClubs had a rep for quite some time, and they never had to pay us a cent for that:

TheTeam

The account's still active, and could be used right now, but I'm not sure if sealswithclubs/swc has any of the same people involved.

I've never had any communication with SWC that I can find.

If they want to have a branded account, be able to promote promos, etc., that would require advertising with us. But if they want a rep like they had before, that was able to answer non-promotion related questions, they're more than welcome to have one. They can email me at the address in my profile, or email 2+2 directly.

Hi,

you post this on every seals forum so I thought I might help you with this.

https://www.cardschat.com/news/seals...deadline-10337

You see, you missed the deadline. Furthermore, bitcoin was worth about $200 a coin in march 2015, now it is worth almost 13k.

So you missed the deadline by a landslide but want your $40 bucks which is reasonable as it's what it was worth at the time. But you want $2500 not $40 because you missed the deadline. I would email them directly about this but they were very clear and emailed everybody and you are the first I've heard of missing this deadline.

Also, if you have any money that got stuck on absolute poker/ultimate bet you are at risk of missing another deadline/may have already missed it.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

There is a sitewide lag has anyone noticed for the past week?

Used to be able to easily play over 200 h/hr per 6m table hu but now maybe only 100.

It's frustrating because 2 games could generate 400 hands or 4 winrates an hour; now getting that many hands is tough.

People like to play poker and especially heads-up extremely fast so I hope they fix this for the enjoyment of all.

This site would be much better if they got rid of all the rat holers. So bad here. Charli2na99 is one of the worst hit and runners on this site. Calling him out and any other loser that does it here

I am pretty sure like all sites this one also wants to slow down how fast winners are winning

Why would they want to slow down the rate at which they collect rake?

Boy, are you too shtu-shtu-shtu-STUPID to see that would cost them money?

More likely is they can't afford better, higher bandwidth servers, because there's very little traffic. Sad, because this is definitely one of the best sites out there.

What makes them more money? Getting in more hands where a winner wins more or playing less hands that are more even so u play longer?

I'm pretty sure it's fine to answer questions about promotions as long as you don't promote your promotions.

edit: maybe I'm wrong -

I feel like it should be fine for someone to ask a question like "hey, why didn't I get paid for this promotion"

As it says in your ban reason, you need to contact us before posting as a rep.

You could respond to those, but via PM.

No one's saying they can't ask, but subsequent discussion should generally be via PM.

2+2 could be floating in sklanksy dollars, if they had accepted bitcoins back then when it was offered to them as a rep payment


swc rep: will you lower the minimum cashout value?
