I appreciate the detailed response mamelas. I guess we'll just have to see how it goes.

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

Yes, when you reg tournaments all day you think about these things lol. Anyway, it seems like it was for not, as I'm checking the lobby now and a lot of the older tournaments are still on the schedule. Sometimes they don't pop up right away until a couple hrs before regging begins. Still interested to see how these new ones will compare and as you said, we'll see

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

I certainly don't check the MTT lobby as often as you, but I have noticed how some tournaments aren't listed too far in advance. I'll check early in the day some times to see if there's anything I might be interested in playing later. Then I'll check later and see a few I didn't notice earlier. I'm not sure why they don't just list everything they plan to run a day or two in advance.

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

I like the new tourney additions. It looks like they did take a few away, like the $33 $2,500 at 9 pm eastern. But they also added some. Like replacing that 9 pm tournament with an $11 $2,000.

The $7,500 $11 rebuy at 8:30 pm eastern is still there. Now it's called the rebuy frenzy lol.

Overall, I think the changes are a positive.

Disclaimer: I hardly ever play on the weekends.

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

They ruined it. The 2.20 for 1k gtd are gone. The 6.60 for 3k gtd is gone. They are removing all the ones that got players playing mtts on bol. All the ones they got now really aren't worth playing imo. I might have to put money back on the dreaded acr cause of these changes. I am only registered in 1 mtt right now. Before today i was playing 8-10 a day. I am withdrawing some of my money but leaving a few bucks on hoping they change it back in the future.

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.
they still have the 11 dollar 7.5k gtd

Don't expect to get much feedback from them by email. Just hope that you log in some day soon and notice a few "people" missing.

I haven't had it happen to me since they lifted the table cap from 4 to 8.

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

I play 100PLO. Don't know much about bots and never accused anyone of being one, but I just started playing on BOL and 2 players just stick out as bots. Won't go into all the reasons but it just seems so obvious.
I have played more hands at 100 than anyone this last week and no one else are like these two. My spidey sense is going off like crazy, but I don't want to falsely accuse anyone.
Names start with "A" and "p". Anyone else have the same questions?

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

You know what tournament is really dumb? The $8.80 $2k rebuy on Thursday's at 7 pm eastern. They continue to put it in the lobby, but it never goes off due to the required 40 player minimum.

That tournament does not need a 40 player minimum. Every time there are 30 odd players who register, but the tournament cancels because it doesn't hit 40.

Tonight 38 players were registered when it cancelled. It's a good tournament when it goes off. It just rarely goes off.

I presume that if they are in fact bots that Fossilkid93 would be a good person to ask. Perhaps you could try to send him a private message. I don't play PLO or I'd tell you myself.

Based on what I've heard I think you're probably right. I believe I even know who the 'p' is.

That does sound dumb to keep offering it with the current minimum entrant requirement and GTD if it keeps getting cancelled. It should be adjusted.

I know they check the forums, but I'm not sure how often. It might be better to email them with your suggestions for how they could improve it.

Yes, "p" is a bot. I'm pretty sure "A" is a bot, but not 100% certain. Doesn't really matter much since BOL isn't going to do anything about it.

I have tried to monitor traffic but there lobby is not great for it and I usually end up looking at off-peak times. What runs consistently in terms of SNGs?

If you click on stars under your profile pic it will show you the levels. The levels seem pointless with no benefit to each level. I emailed support and this is what they sent:

Players now have VIP levels (bronze, silver, gold, platinum and elite). The levels are earned based on how much you have played in the previous month and will become relevant for new promotions. They are earned based on your previous months COMP points earned. So if you earned enough COMP points in September, you will be Elite level in October. While there are currently no perks/benefits associated with your particular level, there will be future promotions which will class players and prizes according to their VIP Levels.

HM2 works if you get a card catcher from acepokersolutions. They also sell DriveHud that works for BOL.
