Re: *** Official Run It Once Poker Thread ***

Since playing 4 days I've seen two 300bb stp and 1 1000 BB stp.

Took down one 300bb and the 1000bb pot. Opted to not play the other 300 because i was dealt 25o utg 6 handed.

I love the idea, it is pretty crazy... maybe it could use some tweaking? I'm excited for the future of this site, I think it has some great potential.

So your premium hands earn less because you're getting more action? If you can't handle the higher variance, that's an issue with your BRM, not Splash The Pot.

For the record, I think the large splashes force players to gamble the profit that's sitting in front of them, so it indirectly encourages going south, which I don't believe is in line with the ethos of RIO Poker.

I must admit it's disappointing that I've mentioned this issue 2 or 3 times now but RIO have not replied once. I'm going to say it one more time for Phil/the team because it's the difference between me and my fellow UK poker buddies playing on the site or not:

Please allow us to deposit directly into £ then do a currency exchange on your side every time we sit/leave a table. This means our euro balance may fluctuate by a couple of euros a day but our £ balance is a constant. I received drastically different fx rates when using Trustly bank deposit/withdrawal and even though the differences may be lower through neteller/skrill/whatever I think it's important for us players not to have to lose money as a result of this given sites such as Unibet or Betfair have proven it to be possible.

This is the only thing keeping me and others playing on the site again.

Spt brings the issue where you need three times the bankroll you need other sites. So like you said it could force people going south.

I said admittedly, meaning posters themselves premised their posts with the fact that they haven't played on RIO. There are speculations about STPs in the other RIO thread and on Twitter by those posters. Which is fine, anyone is welcomed to speculate. In my own case I was sceptical about the idea of STPs but was convinced once I started playing.

KossuKukkla, are your issues with STPs in regards to PLO or NL?

Re: *** Official Run It Once Poker Thread ***

I gave RIO another quick play on Friday, happy to say I had no crashes or errors this time around. Splash pots Iím not a huge fan of myself, but considering I often play on stars which offer almost no rakeback, anythingís better than that.

My one question is are you raking the splash part of a splash pot?

In my post that you replied to I said that I can see how STPs have a greater and perhaps negative impact on PLO. I wouldn't know for sure as I only play NL and everything I'm saying about STPs is based on my experience of them in NL.

There are ways around this such as revolut (thanks to the guy who suggested it) but expecting people to go through that effort to avoid fees is ridiculously silly. I wanted to test the site out and it very nearly was the barrier to stop me playing.

Traffic is too low, more than two tables seems to result in a significant lag, no table resizing/tiling/stacking is annoying, the chip animations really confuse me (maybe I can turn this off haven't looked properly, table popup doesn't work, missing sit-in button is a pain and I don't really like the avatars.

Not sure I'm that big of a fan currently but very much holding out hope and most of the things I don't like are either bugs that should be fixed or things that need slight tweaks.

I don't believe the onus should be on the player to have to go out of their way not to pay fees when a workable solution is being used by multiple sites. I also agree that there's quite a lot that needs fixing in terms of the software, I find the lag horrible when 3+ tabling but I was willing to look past these things for the good of the project/traffic. Their silence, however, is disappointing.

Can also confirm I had similar things happen to me today, First the screen went black and flashed white, then the program just crashed with no messages or explanation. I emailed support and although they respond quicker than pokerstars, they were about as much use as not responding at all.

Have you tried re-installing the program?
That was about as much assistance as I received.

I also received an error where in the middle of the hand I couldn't see stack sizes, which makes playing PLO impossible.

For those that aren't currently on there, I'd wait a while before signing up, at least until the glitches or errors from today are fixed. They mentioned investigating a refund, but time will tell if they actually follow up, because I played about 3 hands of poker today and all were impeded, yet had it crash on me on 4 different occasions mid hands/sessions, I followed there advice between each one, tried re-opening the software, then re-installing etc but nothing helped.

Re: *** Official Run It Once Poker Thread ***

Just had a small disco (maybe 5 seconds) and when it reestablished the connection I was taken off all tables (the tables were still there, but not reacting and from my available balance in the lobby I could see, that I wasn't at the tables anymore.). At the time I was in two 50+ BB pots, which I guess, I automatically lost, luckily it was only NL4, but still really annoying. Please fix it asap, it's not fun playing poker, when you know that the smallest disconnect might cost you the pot.

Update; Cashed out my remaining balance from the servers.
Just somehow lost a full stack when my game froze, Was clicking around and nothing happened. This software has a lot of potential but I couldn't say to stay away any more if I tried. You will find yourself losing a small pot if you're lucky, or a large pot if you're unlucky, and if you give it another go, you'll lose more.

How this got made public with all the current errors is beyond me.

Sorry to hear you're having problems with RIO.

I've been playing on RIO since they launched and haven't experienced any of the problems you've described.

Also, there are many streamers collectively streaming for many hours without these issues. Based on that I would guess the issue is due to something on your end.

Hope it gets figured out for you. Good luck!

You're lucky if there's 200 players maximum at any time, usually it's closer too 50-100.
Safe to say there's plenty of fun players, just giving the software a go - But I question if that'll continue long term.

Appears my issues are being blames on the fact I run a Windows 7 operating system I was playing on yesterday. It is not a "supported" operating system I have just found out. I do have computers running a more modern system, but the fact I can't use a slightly older computer to play really bothers me personally, the "Fun" poker players aren't all going to have modern computer rigs.

I would hate to know how many BB's I lost yesterday, through crashed hands, ranging from 1BB from just posting, anywhere up too 100BB+ from my game glitching on the turn or river of large pots, and me just left there.

I highly recommend players look at all the fact's before hopping on, because at the end of the day even when I contacted support, it took ten emails to inform me that my operating system was apparently the issue. this after being told to "close the app and restart" or try reinstalling.

When attempting to cash-out yesterday, my cash-out was rejected apparently by my bank, which is weird in my opinion being that it works fine for this on pokerstars, party, and a range of other gambling websites.
They have informed me I need to deposit more money, in able to withdraw my money I have on the site?

Here is a small demonstration of a few of my issues yesterday;

Firstly, a fun video of the software at peek perfomance.


Secondly, stack sizes disappearing mid-hand.

Thanks for the reply; I'd disagree with you on streamers, hop on the RIO discord and you'll see many of them get disconnected or have tables crash from time to time, usually for a BB at max though, so they don't care.
There is multiple reports a day about software glitching or crashing mid hand and people losing money, each time they say to contact support, which I myself did, and being told to re-load the game or try re-installing didn't help in any way, shape or form. It's more of a "go deal with it in private, where people won't see the issues".

I'm already starting to have some concerns in regards to the longevity of RIOP.

Your quote above, along with a few other things has only added to that concern.

I played several session on different days with only 1 issue, I got sat out on 1 table and could not sit back in, had to close table and re-join, other than that small hiccup evrything was great, I play on a windows 7 machine too.

I do have pretty fast hardware to go with my W7 os, but not sure how relevant that all is.

Hi Delfins and Pakichu,

Fair suggestions for the larger "splashes", we appreciate the feedback. We've received a lot of feedback and a variety of suggestions regarding the larger splashes. We're discussing a few different possibilities internally and we will provide an update if and when necessary.

Thanks!

think the software is really cool and apart from the little bugs think it is already a lot better than sites like unibet/partypoker

also don't feel ripped off as you do from most other sites these days so it's nice to have an owner doing it for the love of the game rather than the profit

one problem it seems it is just me having is that my tables keep crashing after about 10 mins, sometimes more often, one table works okayish and i was wondering if there is anything I can do to stop this, maybe it is just my internet or the laptop is struggling with rio for some reason, not sure if anything can be done about this ?
When you experience a crash how many tables are you typically playing? If you have time it would be helpful if you sent your logs to support@runitonce.eu. Explain what happens before and after a crash and they may be able to provide assistance.

Thanks for playing and sharing your feedback so far! Good luck

So instead fo 50 bins because of the splashes 60 is just fine. Ok then. You must the guy who leaves the table after hitting 110bbs. Maybe 3x was a bit overstatement but 20% is just plain and simple dumb thing to say.
