Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Does anyone frequently get a message when opening the client that says "betonline game client is taking too long to start and will be closed. Possible reasons video drivers. please install the latest driver for you video card and restart the computer. -Antivirus. Please let us know. I'm barely able to login and when I go on the website it is telling me to validate and create an account when all my info is there..I was able to request a cashout logging in from my phone. I played a handful of sessions and placed bets a few months ago with no issues.

Any suggestions if your video drivers are updated, Windows security is set to all time lows and you don't run virus protection?

I'm at a bit of a loss here. Was working fine until their software update the other day...Tried calling them, on hold an hour /shrug.

i read that too, but i have been charged a fee, and not a small one

i just assumed they meant no (additional) fees, but took the miner fee out of my account balance. misleading, but not surprising... miner fees shouldn't be free.

however with as much extra as they removed from my account, the transfer must have been pending for only minutes.

Pulled all my money off this site. Bots are everywhere. They made it a huge pain in the ass to get my money as usual too. Send this, send that, fill this out blah blah blah. Site used to have amazing games but security is pure garbage and shady **** is going on all over now. GG.

When any software update and it does not work, the first thing i usually do is uninstall the software, run ccleaner to clean PC then reboot. After reboot, install the software again.

Most of the time this fix it.

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Can a BOL rep please explain why my neteller deposits are getting the
error "Merchant Blocked Geolocation" ?

This seems to be a new development in the last week.

What I enjoy is clicking on empty tables / games that are 1/6

And instantly seeing all the (bots?) instafill and then they sit out and leave when you don’t sit. It’s hilarious. Try it.

They all rush to the table then immediately leave. Or it’s funny to see them play a blind and then lose a pot and leave thinking more people were sitting

Bigrpk222 and leipso are repeat offenders currently

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Sounds more like regs that use a seating script rather than bots, but I guess it's possible some bots may have a seating script as well. I don't believe many at 50nl and below do.

I've hopped on the 1000nl tables before just to screw with the regs using seating scripts too. Seems like a lot of them have them up there because the table just fills instantly when I sit down. I then lecture them and leave. Patience bumhunters, I will be up there some day.

maga_Tigr and InSpiteofU as well as ChanceLife and Allegaeon and Roy mustang

100% these people are working together.

Jesus it’s everywhere. They all auto sit out too and wait.

It’s amazing. They won’t sit and play with one another. It’s so sketchy but I am having fun making them bounce around


**** I’m watching right now. I kept moving around seats and now the scripts or bots or whatever stopped joining after they realized I wasn’t actually playing. I am watching player “minions1” who I assume is not part of the bot ring / collusion because the 4 players in the game “Roy mustang” “MnePret” “UbLudok” and “Analkonda”
Are all playing against him. You can see it.

Don’t think BOL security gives 2 ****s

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

fwiw I don't care about regs who seat script - if you're not a fish you got nothing to worry about - I scan 2, 3 handed tables manually all the time so it's not like it's a huge advantage on such a small site - seat scripting is really helpful when you have 4 or 5 clients open together...

although I'm probably going to take my money off the site too. As is, I haven't played on it for over a week now.

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Seems unlikely that NLHE bots are seat-scripting or sitting out, but maybe they behave way differently than the PLO bots. Those ones will just choose 3-4 tables when they start playing, and then they won't change tables for the rest of the session. They will also play everyone HU, even another bot. Was kinda funny when 2 bots were battling for 45 minutes against each other, probably paying ~$1/hand in rake b/c they are pretty aggro.

Think every night if I am free for 15 min or so I’ll just log on to mess with them and the nits. It’s pretty funny to sit when they alll appear. And if you stay the entire time as the countdown clock goes , they’ll “accidentally” play a hand. Love it.

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Anyone ever done a payout via courier check and tried to waive the $50 fee? They supposedly will give you a free payout on a Friday. So I moved the money that I want to cashout to the sportsbook and tried to initiate the payout but it says I don't have enough in there to cover the $50 fee. I talked to the live chat support but they were no help. Anyone have experience with this?

Yeah the NLHE bots I know of have the same tendencies you're describing with the PLO bots.
