BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

Hi my name is Mike, please feel free to post in our forums and ask me or my colleagues any questions related to bet online or the thread titles.

Would you like a sit n go/ windfall monthly race?

Do you think you have what it takes to win?

What type of structure would you like for the race?

Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

Is there a reason PLO8 isn't included in the rake races?
I liked the races when they were based on skill. Now there is No way to out volume bots and 24 hour accounts. I can beat players based on winning though. It was the reason i started playing from other sites. Now you followed all the other crappy sites and went rake.

Didn't reply, is there a reason PLO/PLO8 isn't counted for the SNG weekly leaderboards?
However, maybe it's a good thing...less regs lol.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

Rake race is too top heavy, if you have to miss a Sunday or Monday you basically have to write off the rest of the week which is hurting traffic. It should go back to how it was paying more spots or be a daily race if you want it that top heavy.

OK, NP. I'm just saying. Since BOL changed the SNG's, changed it to rake races a long time ago, they have never been included. It's not going to change me making the leaderboard, I can't play 10k games a week. Just wondering why they would make it only NLHE and not everything. You pay the rake no matter what SNG you play.

I agree at least they should pay more spots, I don't really like the current rake race though anyways. I doubt i will ever make a LB either in the current status.
I'm also not seeing on the website how many LB points you get per game. It's a very vague description online. It says 1 comp point equals 1 LB point, is a comp point $1 in rake?

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

I think the rake race structure is fine as is. Maybe pay 1 or 2 more spots at the most. If you cut the top prizes you'll see less incentive from the people who actually drive SNG volume on this site.

Please note that I'm not talking about HU SNG's. I don't believe this is a good idea to have a rake race in anything HU. Recreational players get destroyed HU, I'd consider cutting HU before promoting it.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

I personally like how the Leaderboard begins on Sunday. Especially, the time. It works out perfectly b/c Sunday is our Monday, which allows us to grind during the week and have our weekends off. Unlike, WPN where they begin on Friday night. Which, is terrible b/c you can now say good bye to your weekends.

As for the payout structure, I believe there should be at least 10 spots paid. Back in the day, where you paid 20. That was a few too many, imo. But what I really liked a lot, about the good old days was how you offered a better variety of stakes. $11, $16, $22, $27, $36, $44, $57, $65, $88, $108 and $215. That's off the top of my head, I could be wrong on a couple but I loved how that was. Just not the 10-max and the 6-max regulars, those were not fun.

Overall, I'd like to see higher payouts for the Top 3 Finishers and/or possibly a Rake Back Program of some what. Which, I personally think with a Rake Back Program, you'll see a lot more new customers in hand. At one point, you did have 3 different seperate Leaderboard Races (small/medium/high stakes). Which, the higher stakes did have a payout of $1,000 up top. And, that's when the higher stakes were actually running more often.

Finally... I'd love to see some higher stakes SnG's, as well. If possible... maybe, $300/$500's, would be awesome!

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

Hello guys,

Do you have any intension to solve the BOT/CHEATERS problem from the sng games?
At least the Sng HU games are full of BOTS and gto game CHEATING SOFTWARE USERS.
I emailed you 6 MONTHS ago and nothing happened in fact way more cheaters registered since then and right now close to 100% of the time only BOTS and CHEATING SOFTWARE USERS have the lobby.
Hope you will really try to keep this game safe and fair?

Regards

There is a thread where regular players, that played for years on chico network, give more details about these cheaters that give no chance for a fair game to recreational players.

Hi bid23,

We have a strict policy when it comes to using prohibited software.
I personally have never seen your email, but please send it to me privately, I will give you my email address.
We are working very hard to get rid of all prohibited software users on the site.
We always welcome information on this matter. We had a meeting this week, regarding another players detailed report on some users.

I am hoping, like you guys to have some good news ASAP

Kind Regards

Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

I know at least 7 more regular players from chico network that sent emails regarding this matter 5 or 6 months ago to
poker@BetOnline.ag and
support@tigergaming.com .
We also put the content of the email in a "keep the game safe and fair" area on both websites . You have a section section there where players can report such things, don't remember exactly how is called...

It’s funny that you started to fuss only when everything became really bad for you. Do you have plans to fight with teamplay and multi-accounting? Of course, most of them having eaten and scaring away your delicious fish have already left. But still some rogues remained

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

It's not like that. We fighted many cheaters in last 12 months. Most of them stopped when they saw they cann't beat the rake versus regular players and with few of them had deals to play a specific schedule.
Lately most of us prefered to play less and enjoy summer.
We informed chico about cheaters and gave them details and profes about more then 10 cheaters 6 months ago, the patience comes to an end when you see so many cheaters joined chico while you were in vacation and you know chico did nothing to stop them in 6 months after you informed them about what is happening in their husng games.
It's just frustrating fighting bots and kicking them out from chico and see more bots joining chico after.
Right now i feel makes no sense to continue wasting time, energy and money to rake versus these SO OBVIOUS CHEATERS!

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

I thought chico started to block BOTS AND CHEATING SOFTWARE USERS but ofcourse i was wrong.
URMOMHOTBRA,
OOORLY?,
ORBANVITYA88,
GaborsPekPek,
KawhileNewKing,
VardisKutya
all of them didn't play last 10 days on chico network.
Seems the cheaters had a software problem.
Something happened for sure because ipoker bots also missed and some of them are not same CHEATERS from chico for sure, i mean baZOOkangaroo, elena1987belarus and BetterCatch . Not same cheaters but playing under same CHEATING SOFTWARE dealer .

DISGUSTING!!!

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Sit & Go / Windfalls Thread

I understand part of Sit-N-Go's rake is for the daily leaderboard. However, this rake is much higher (Betonline 1.50 bi\ 20 cents for 8 minute blind levels) to (Competitor's 1.1BI with 10 cent rake for 10 minute blind levels).

However, I can not put in volume to complete for the leaderboard. I would ask you could lower rake to 10% of prize pool for couple SnGs in each level, that would not go to the leaderboard?

Thanks
