I disagree that they're not worth playing. I can profitably play several 6max tables even at 500NL. I do agree that some extra time would be nice.

If you would really like to see a change then put your feedback in the suggestion box.

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

I'm naturally cynical about lots of stuff. On the other hand I think a lot of people feel the same way about the allotted time as you do. If enough people provide feedback about a particular aspect of the poker room I think it has a better chance of seeing some change.

Good luck to you as well!

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

I'm playing in a tourney tonight on BOL for the first time in awhile, and the Hand Replayer isn't working while the tourney was running. It showed no hands listed, even though I could call up my Hand History and see that it was there. I'm still playing, so don't know whether I can review the hands after it's over. I've played cash on BOL fairly recently and the Hand Replayer was working fine during play.

Anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

Sometimes there's a bug that will forward you ahead one day, probably because of timezone difference. Might want to make sure you're on the right day, i've had this happen a lot. This will happen around 12AM, or happens if you start a tournament before 12AM.

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

DonWon is correct. Their server must be a little bit ahead of any timezone in the USA and/or doesn't recognize the date change if you were on that table when the day changes. Just click on the previous day and they'll show up.

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

I've been having this "Connection to the Lobby" pop up happen constantly, which I go to type in my bet in the bet box and when I type in my bet say 1400 it goes back down to the min bet of say 200. So, I then have to re-type the bet again and sometimes time out.

Is anyone getting this "Connection to the Lobby" pop up? It seems fairly new, maybe a couple of months or so. It updates the sites lobby, which it use to do it all without this pop up.

Thanks in advance.

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

Hey everyone. I'm new to posting so please bare with me. I've been playing at BetOnline for a few months. I'm currently at 25nl and struggling to stay even. In HM2 I've tried filtering on other players I have a lot of hands against and I appear to be crushing them.

That doesn't make sense considering I'm struggling to break even. Either no one is profitable at this level or I'm being crushed by the fish (God I hope not).

Thoughts?

Sure, it could be rake, it could be the blinds (I rock if I filter by VPIP). If I'm that awesome and not making money, then probably nobody's making money. Could be I suppose. Just doesn't seem likely.

How many hands have you played in that time period?

I haven't used HM2 extensively, but I have a feeling your filtering process is not giving you an accurate description of your true winrate. Perhaps a more experienced HM2 user could tell you what you should be looking at.

I had a winrate over 14bb/100h at 25NL playing more than 50k hands approximately a year and a half ago. I probably ran pretty well in that sample, but I think I had a big enough edge to win consistently. I doubt the players at that stake have dramatically improved since then. Your struggle could be because of several different things, but I'd be shocked if those games weren't currently beatable.

That's an abnormally long wait. I think most btc withdrawal requests probably reach wallets within 48hrs. Did you contact them about the delay? If so, what did they say? If not, then you should probably ask them about it.

Thanks. I'll check that next time it happens, especially if I'm in a tourney late at night, which isn't very often. It seems to be working ok this afternoon.

Thanks, good information about the win rate. I have definitely not played enough to get a win rate. What is causing me to scratch my head is the fact that I seem to be beating all the regulars, yet not making money.

Whatever your win rate is against the regulars, it is not high enough to overcome your losses when in the blinds and versus other players. Your analysis is similar to filtering for only hands played from the top 15%, even most break even players will observe a relatively high win rate with these hands.

Until you put in a significant amount of volume(at least 50k hands) I don't think you can read too much into it if you're breaking even instead of significantly losing. I've had 50k hand stretches of playing breakeven poker more than once at different stakes. It doesn't mean you can't be a long-term winner. The fact that you appear to be beating regulars in the short-term and losing to everybody else in small samples also doesn't mean much.

There are forums here dedicated to discussing this type of stuff. I think you may find some better advice there.

does Chico provide hand histories at all (saved to the computer or downloadable at a later date like Bovada?)... or they don't, and that's why you need for the Card Catcher...

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

There isn't any way to download them that I know of and I find that odd since they have a setting for how long you would like them stored. You do need a 3rd party program to capture the hands in real time. If you'd like to be able to then you could ask for the ability to download them in the suggestion box.

I can't remember what the exact hang up was but I ran into something similar a few years ago when doing vsplayer analysis in HM2. like you it showed I was absolutely crushing everybody but it turned out to be something weird with HM2. I'm sorry I can't remember what exactly it was, I just remember scratching my head because HM2 was showing me crushing one reg in particular but I knew that player was completely dominating me at the tables. talked to a buddy and he ran some filters and I was actually down multiple buyins vs said villain (getting crushed indeed, lol). so yeah, what its showing you almost assuredly isn't accurate, imo

Hey tigergaming support are now ignoring my e-mails to their support and they have 1k of my euro locked on my account that I can´t even log-in to anymore. I have not been banned for breaking the rules or anything like that. The gambling laws in my country did change however I just want my money back :/.

What country, Australia? Did you receive an email from them about your account around the time the laws changed? What did that email say about what would happen with your account and what can be done about recovering your funds?
