Pokerstars Security Issue

2+2 seems to be my go to for Pokerstars complaints these days;

I am a full time worker and a social poker player, I won a $215 winter series ticket which is why I woke up at 4 am local time to play the Sunday Starter, as it was the only $215 tournament available outside of business hours. After playing some games, my account was then locked about 15 minutes before the start of this tournament "for a routine security check" - Completely on stars and not my fault at all. As soon as this happened I emailed support the following;

Quote:
So it appears I've been locked out of my account for whatever reason.

It's currently 4:40am and I was awake for the purpose of playing the sunday Warm up with my $215 Winter series ticket.

Due to be locked out I cannot register (completely beyond my control).

For this reason can you please issue with me with a cash rebate for this ticket, it is the only tournament remaining I could guarantee playing given the awkward time of starting and real life commitments.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
I emailed support saying exactly this and got responded the following;

Quote:
Thank you for contacting us and we wish you a Happy New Year!

After a quick review of your account I can confirm that you are still registered in the Winter Series 01 - Micro: $2.20 NLHE [Phase 2], which will have place on 06.01.2019.

I can assure you that your case is already in the corresponding department to be attended. Although I am sorry I cannot give you a deadline to receive an answer, I can assure you that they will contact you as soon as possible.

If there is anything else we can do to assist you, please let us know. Thank you for choosing us.

Regards,

Emilia
Stars Support
That email was three days ago and I have responded twice since, each one being ignored. It seems completely unreasonable to block my account from playing (for about five days by the time they emailed me, made me provide documents and then unlocked it) and then not offer me compensation for my ticket in my opinion.

I feel like whoever responded to my email can't understand basic English either, how you replied that I'm beyond confused. I'm also wondering what this tournament I'm registered in is, I look forward to playing considering I have not made a day two of the phase tournaments

Very difficult Sudoku, imo:

*6* **3 8**
**9 *** *5*
7** *2* ***

*** 9** *3*
5** *8* 7**
**2 *** **1

8** 7** 6**
*3* *** *9*
**1 **5 **4

It took me three sessions to crack it, fwiw.

Does online tracking sites not tracking bounties properly not bother anyone?

I've noticed that most tracking sites, with the exception of SharkScope and PokerProLabs, fail to track bounties won in knockout tournaments when calculating results. As someone who plays a lot of KO tournaments (they consist of 50-70% of my MTT volume), it surprises me that there isn't more discussion about the fact this is the situation. Even Pocketfives doesn't track bounties awarded.

Has anyone else noticed or been bothered by this, and is there anything that could be done to stop these sites putting out inaccurate results for people who play a lot of knockout tournaments? I don't know, it just seems really surprising to me that there are so few threads/discussions online discussing this.

I'd rather tracking sites be banned rather than fixed as they basically only exist for bad regs to berate fish using $tat$

OPR is down

Really irritating. I'm in the middle of my Sunday session. I assume it's down for everyone.

I'm playing a 5.5 dollar tourney on Pokerstars. Did they really change the tourney to be 4.9 dollars goes to prize pool and .6 dollars rake? Unbelievable.

It's been 10% rake for tournaments forever. That's why I was a bit shocked. They also did the sponsorship deal with UFC so I thought they didn't need to do that.

anyone heard of SuicideJacks Poker?

SSIA... they started following me on Twitter. It looks like a sweepstakes model (similar to Global?). Anyone know anything about them?

It seems to be more like ClubWPT rather than Global... nevermnind

Re: Zoo Chat - 2019 - Quick Questions & Random Posts Go Here

Well it's all going to depend on how many you have. An individual hand history is going to take basically no space at all. If you've bought a database of 100 million, that's a different question, but it's still not going to take up that much compared to downloading random pr0n

It probably depends on what they think about the recent reinterpretation of the Wire Act. There should be some news on or soon after February 18th. The link below may be of interest to you.
