Dude, Am I remembering incorrectly or did you not ask them to close your account? Looks like you got your wish.

If anyone would know it's certainly you. Every time I check it you're up near or at the top.

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

Good luck bro! You're gonna need it with some of those fights. I always like to throw a little action down on the fights too. I just hate when my parlays lose before the main event. I stick to props, underdogs, small favs and overs/unders.

Yeh I mean the payout is absurd for a reason. Obv itís a super long shot.

But F it. Itís MMA. Anything can happen

Knowing my luck Iíll somehow hit 4/4 and be winning 4 rounds in the main just to get KOd

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

My short (and actually) positive story of BetOnline, from this week:

I deposited $2k w/ BTC and randomly searched for a deposit bonus code, as usual. Found something that said "25%" and quickly used it. Upon deposit, I found I had $500 in free play (for sports-betting only), which was fine w/ me, even though I am not at all into sports-betting.

Later, when I went to withdraw $4k, I was informed that there was a rollover requirement of $35,000 - through sports-betting - otherwise, I wasn't going to be able to withdraw anything.

I live-chatted w/ support, begged them to cancel the bonus/rollover, and they said they'd review my case. After ~36 hours, they replied and told me they had cancelled it. Soon after, I withdrew with no problem (BTC took 24 hours).

Your luck is so bad it can directly effect the outcome of an mma fight? You are a powerful man!

Is the only way to play from Thailand to use a VPN? It doesn't connect otherwise.

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

PLO bot update: They are currently in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd on the $1/$2 cash leaderboard and 1st and 2nd on the $.50/$1 cash leaderboard. I sent an email to support with all the names of the bots and several ways to detect them, but it was basically ignored. I received an automatic email, but no actual written response.

It's actually 4th. Global isn't tracked by PokerScout for some reason.

I would disagree that it blows. The software is near the top compared to the other options in the US. The games are good enough to make money without rakeback.

I would agree that it's not the best option for high stakes pros and tournament grinders given the current traffic, but you can still find some good games and tournaments here.

That sucks. I honestly wouldn't expect to hear much from them by email. I never received much feedback from them. If they decide to remove the accounts they'll just disappear at some point without a Thank You or any other acknowledgement. It could be soon or at may take a while, but I hope they do. Let us know if anything changes.

I've never noticed any correlation between the connection status and my actual ability to stay connected. If you're having trouble playing more than one table without issue I think it's likely an issue with your computer. Keep Task Manager open as you start to have issues and see what parts of your computer are spiking.

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

Thanks for reply. I have a new computer with fast internet will multiple poker clients operating smoothly. Task manager shows no issues. I have the same issue on my laptop. Tested it on another WiFi connection too.

It is killin me cause I like the software. As I type this the client froze and I will have to restart yet again.

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

That's odd. If there's no problem in Task Manager then I'm not exactly sure what it could be. Have you set the client to run as administrator? If possible, try a wired connection instead of wifi.

They started to have such issues recently. You may take the crypto currencies
option or use Neteller or wait a bit, so that they would have enough funds on Skrill again.

P.S. HU SNG bots are thriving up to 60$ games now.

That's harsh. Usually I get the automated response followed by a generic "your email has been forwarded to our security department."

If you're certain that they are bots then please send an email to them with a list of the account names. They may not always act as fast as we'd like, but I've seen many disappear from the NLHE Cash Games after contacting them.

Agreed.... Software runs better than all other US options, but doesnt look as pretty as ACR's and other than ACR mtt schedule it is/has been better than all other options.

However, concerned might be an understatement for the new schedule they just rolled out. Wondering if this will effect the weekend

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

I've seen the advertisements. I also regularly see you in the MTTs I do hop in every now and then. Not being an MTT reg I'm not sure what the new change means. Could you elaborate on your concerns?

There's definitely some Europeans in the player pool. I'm not sure how many Germans play on the network.

Sure. They bumped up all of the buyins for, what were, the daily mtts (3k,7.5k,10k). Before the 3k was a $6 R+A (rebuy + addon) and now it is a $33 re-entry w/ no addon). The 7.5k was a $11 R+A and now a $109 R+A. The 5k was a $11 and now a $55 re-entry. It's like this all across the board and you can see how it is seemingly less value. Each of these* tournaments before today's change would make the GTD 95% of the time and consistently crush the GTD.

I'm not 100% sure how this will play out, but it seems to me intuitively that these tournaments will get less volume, which could be good, as far as smaller fields, but worse that the GTDs won't be met and the site will have to restructure their schedule again (if they do it will be the 4th time this year).


I understand they likely did this because they've failed to meet GTDs on the weekends on the bigger mtts (the 40k overlays almost 100% and the 100k last month had about 40k overlay) but they are going about it in the wrong way. They should keep the 3-10ks the same buyin (and preferably change the daily 10k from $44 r+a to a $22 r+a, while adding 30 mins more of late reg and/or giving more starting chips) and lower the 40k on the weekend to a 30k and the 15s to 12.5k. Charging people more for the same tournaments aren't the answer to makeup for money. Change the structures/starting stacks to accommodate, so more people will join and/or rebuy.
