Are there enough? how many seats do you like? structures? times? when you might play one for our bigger events?

I look forward to your answers

Thanks

More mega satties w 10-20 seats GTD would be great.

hi mike, i have a few recommendation. i play plo8 too so i'll start with that:

sngs - biggest game is $7 full ring. there's enough demand for $15.

mtts - there's already a $5k plo/$55 buyin on sunday, lets have a $5k plo8/$55 buyin on saturday. nightly 5 seat guarantee/$11 buyin satellites.

the nightly $15k nlhe/$55 buyin doesnt have a satellite while the $109 and $215 buyin tournaments do. maybe a satellite that lasts 2 1/2 to 3 hours 10 seats guaranteed/$11 buyin that starts 3 hours before the tournament. or a turbo that starts closer to the tournament.

i guess the main thing is to make sure the servers can handle the bigger load from all the people playing due to lockdowns. good luck!

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

The $215 structure needs fixed. I just went to late register, said registration was open 17 levels so 2:39pm local time where I am. I opened the lobby at about 2:15pm, registration was closed and the tourney was already in the money with 11 players left and 13 making the money. How is it possible that a tourney makes it into the money before registration closes?

just a boost to my BR

I was down on my luck and ran a little deep in 2 tournaments... now I'm more comfortable, should I be more aggro in the early stages of the tournaments?? I have more bullets now

Re: just a boost to my BR

Depends what type of tournament I'd say. If it's the 5000 GTD ones where late registrations last 24 hours yes, because you're going to get people coming in last second of late registration and their only move is to go call in...you want plenty of chips to call them when they go all in with K 9, A 4, and those types.

Keep playing how you are playing. You were able to go deep in 2 tournaments with your playstyle so it must be working.

Funny how Betonline tries to appear virtuous by running a charity event when they are insolvent and seize player funds without any explanation. How about instead of trying to fraud being a respectable brand you actually lift the severe cashout restrictions and return stolen player funds? You are one of the shadiest brands in this industry and thats saying a lot.

Hi Betonline,

I contacted the security and fraud team and I will be receiving some information a little later today regarding your account.

Currently I am trying to help you and instead of blocking you or deleting your repeat posts, I have tried to get your more information.
I believe the security team has contacted you via email and phone calls. Maybe check your junk/spam/trash emails.

As I said previously and in private messages to you, when I hear something so will you.

Regards

Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

Hey guys,

Don't forget this Sunday we have 2 huge tournaments to help curb that quarantine boredom.

$250,000 Sunday Main Event

Sunday’s Main Event on April 26th at BetOnline has received a $100,000 increase in the guaranteed prize pool, making it the largest tournament the poker platform has ever seen. The event kicks off @ 1:00 pm ET with its standard buy-in of $100+$9 and a starting stack of 10,000 chips.

Win a Seat From as Low as $5.50
We have daily satellites and qualifiers running with hundreds of seats to the big show. You can earn your spot in this massive event from as low as $5.50. Here's a list of the satellites and starting times. The satellite offering will increase as we get closer to the $250,000 event.

Dollar Insanity $25,000 Guaranteed Tourney For Just $1!!

$25,000 is on the table in April 26’s DOLLAR INSANITY Main Event, and a $1 buy-in is all that sits between you and a shot at walking away with your cut. Players can also win one of the 60 free entries available in the four qualifying events.

Daily Qualifiers: Get a FREE seat!

Winning free entry is simple, as players only need to opt in via the MY MISSIONS page, generate $1 in rake in our available cash games and finish in the top 15 in one of our Instant All-In Qualifiers.

Good luck to everyone

Kind regards

Mike

Once again a deadline was given to me that I would receive a response and none has been provided. This has occured more times than I can count. When am I actually going to be given a real deadline that Betonline keeps their word on? Or am I just going to have my money stolen without any response at all?

Didn't the last time a dollar insanity tournament was run cause the servers to crash? Love the idea just hope the servers can handle the size of the tournament and we still get to play all the other great tournaments offered Sunday

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

Just wanted to drop by and say thanks for a smooth Sunday - everything including the dollar insanity tournament went off without a hitch!

It looks like the 25K GTD, $55 tournament at 6PM EST was removed though? Pretty sure this always hit the guarantee so not sure why it's gone. Would REALLY like to see more tournaments between 6PM and 8PM EST on Sundays - there was pretty much nothing but satellites and micro MTTs running yesterday and I had to move all my volume for the remainder of the session to other sites. Would love to see anything added here but think it could be a great spot for some PKOs or turbos.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

Hi, Mike.

About my last https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...&postcount=127

It's been over a month since you banned those cheaters. Have you got any news? As they were banned, it means that I were right. So I've got some questions:

1. What country were those accounts from?

2. Will be there any compensation to the players who suffered losses?

3. How it happened that you hadn't noticed those cheaters for more than 1 year?

I think they'll try to come back. And I noticed some new accounts with unusual activity.

Also, I want to discuss the structure of tournaments. The present structure isn't suitable for tournaments 55$ +.

Averenge stack 12-15 BB at ITM stage looks more like bingo, not poker.

P.S. Delete prev post pls, link incorrect

Hi Ebobo,

I am not given any of the inside information from the security and fraud team.
If you notice any suspicious activity please send me a private message with all the info you have, so that I can report it.
How would you like to improve the structure for the 55+ buy ins?

Many thanks

Mike

Mike, it's ok to have this structure at early stages.. ok.. but tons of things does not make any sense.

look at the payouts of your mtts man.. why would i play a non ko mtt, 215 buy in, when the minimum itm is 229$ ?? does it makes any sense ?..

i mean.. u doing a great job, but pls.. be more active talking with regs. ppl always like to help. we are here to help. bigger guarantees is cool. yeah.. but as i said before.. if i want to play turbos, i go to other rooms. lol

u going for major daily mtts, playing final table , being the chip leader with 25 big blinds ? seems like the hyperturbos at stars... make it more playable.. increase the stack for the majors, or add new blind levels for ex. fix the payouts, the payjumps. the late reg for the 215 today for ex. 50 ppl playing, late regin till 5 bigblinds.. does it even makes any sense ??? ... then the minimum cash is 229$.. if u want ppl to enter with 5big ok.. their money.. but at least make a new payouts structure.

try it for some days and ssee the feedback.

even for the micros and low stakes.. ppl want to learn. to improve. to play poker and not bingo u know.. if u want more recs , make some hyperturbos for ex.. if u think they wont like deeper structures.. but if u want to keep your house growing, u need to provide nice and playable mtts..
s i said. the 250k gtd 109. very nice yeah. look at the final table. was that poker ? ... pushfolding 80% of the time ?

share your thoughts with us.. we are here to help.. just be more active with us pls. tks and keep the good job.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

Hi Mike

At the Moment the structure of most tournaments are more or less the same. No matter if its a 5$ or a 525$.

Firstly: Add Antes from the beginning please.

My suggestion for the structures would be to have like 3 Categories:

"Deep" -> Most Mtts 109+ (but surely all major tournaments), but also some 22/33 & 55$. With normal blindlevels early. But after lvl 12 or 18 u change the levels to 15 or 20 min.

"Normal" -> Most Mtts 5-55$, the MTTs we have already, but with 1h less latereg. The latereg destroys the whole game around the bubble. You have like 30 guys jumping in last second and then 30min of stalling if latereg is close to the money. thats annoying for everybody even the recs.

"Turbo or Hyper" -> Some Mtts from 5-215$ (like the supersonic on pokerstars), With 3 or 5 min levels, some might be with endless rebuys and addon, to make them the shovefest some players enjoy. To have something for the "gamblers" or players who have only a certain amount of time as well.

Then you can mark all the Tournaments to those three Formats, so everybody can see & filter quickly and decide what they wanna play.

Thank you and Let me know if I can help with anything

Sincerely
Shrank

Hi Henrique,

Thanks for this I use a lot of the information you guys give and then try my best to convey that to the powers that be.

It is clear that certain subjects I am not allowed to discuss and sometimes it just keeps the peace.
When I receive constructive points like this and the one above I use them and justifies the whole process.

Kind regards

Mike

even if u want our opinion, just ask. share what u working on. obv u have a team behind , but we could provide our info as players too. the better structure u have, the more it will grow. we dont want u to have this guaranteed only for the quarantine period. if u build a nice schedule and solid structures, it will just keep adding new players and keeps afiliated the old ones.

tks
