First part is good to hear. Second part sounds familiar. FWIW, I'm embarrassed to be bringing this up. I'm not going to mention it again until I'm down at least 200BI. At that point I'll probably put on my tinfoil hat and head over to the riggie thread.

My understanding is this thread is for US players (hence Bovada), and the other thread is for non-Us players (playing on Bodog).

It is also largely irrelevant which one you post in, its not like any rep from either company is reading either thread. Your basically just asking other players for help, so post it in whatever thread you want imo

Creating this thread in the first place is stupid. We don't have a thread for EACH skin on merge, so why do we do it for bodog?

RE: Bodog going down. For those of you who are new, the site goes down a few times a week, usually around 6-9 am EST. So stop freaking out every single week when this happens. You should be expecting it by now.

There is a forum for rpm and lock. I think Carbon has a thread. They are all on the merge network.

I am kind of shocked there is no Bovada Becky to answer questions.

the threads you mentioned above have poker room reps, Bovada doesn't have one. Neither does Bodog.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

I am pretty ****ing upset right now.

So I guess HUD's have worked since 12/8.

So funny how you scum bags have been using huds for weeks now, and barely anyone mentions it. How is this not worse for the fish?

I don't play on Bodog, but I've known about HUDs on there for weeks because it's been posted about so many times. And AFAIK, Bodog has no rule against it, so how is anyone a scum bag for using one?

From my understanding they only work for a session. If a player got up and came back all data you had on them would go away. I am not a big fan of huds.

So has Bodog left the US yet? i am guessing they aren't allowing new US sign ups or are they?

Bodog has left in a sense for US players. The new brand for the US is Bovada but the network remains the same. Sign ups are normal at Bovada I believe.

You flip through the threads and find the name of the HUD that still works, go to their web page and buy it for 79 Euros.

I guess your right Bob. However, I challenge anyone who is using a HUD right now on Bodog to honestly say they don't feel a tad scummy about it knowing that everyone else at the table thinks its anonymous and no HUDS.

It isn't just US Players on Bovada. I'm outside US and had to switch to Bovada. I'm guessing everyone in Central, South and North America are on Bovada.

I thought it was just the US because of what Bodog Becky said. But I guess I should expect nothing less from such a good person as Bodog Becky. She answers every question and is a true example of customer service.

Yes, I suppose, although that question has come up soooooo frequently.

I'd be pretty surprised to hear that, but I suppose it's possible. Seeing as you're the first person to post this, and Canada is one of our biggest traffic providers, I'd think it was more likely that an error forced you to switch.

Check this out, Becky sent it to me and I posted it in one of the threads:

http://calvinayre.com/2011/12/16/bus...e-name-bovada/

"So you can see that Bovada.LV is really just all about fun and the planned future expansion into Latin America."

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

The software is quite trendy and retro. It gives you the feel you are playing on poker software from 1998. Slow, laggy unresponsive many times, just like the old days. I think the first sites I ever played on were faster actually.

So why does anyone even play there then? There are much better sites out there than that.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

I just deposited a small amount to test the games out and am in awe of how soft they are at the moment, I'm struggling to understand all the hate.

Is it just that the software is so annoying? I mean, of course I'd prefer faster/more reliable/more user-friendly software but considering the lack of options to US players I'm more than willing to take what I can get. Am I missing something?

Sure there is the potential for collusion with the anonymity, but there are ways of making money on this site. Is cashing out an issue?

I opened this thread to see if everyone else felt like it was Party Poker '04 again (and I mean that in the best way possible) but apparently not.

Could anyone clarify?
