Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

It's terrible for the game in a million ways, playing someone HU now is virtually impossible if you even show any profit, I'm probably a lifetime break even or losing player at HU and regs still won't play me. Whatever happened to actually figuring out if the person you are playing is good or not and then quitting. These Pus*ies that bum hunt should be burned at the stake.......my two cents

re: Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

It's been discussed, but Poker Table Ratings is bad for the game in a lot of ways. I completely agree that something should change. At the very least get rid of the comments section. If a frequent depositing fish discovers PTR and sees a page of comments about how to exploit him or insulting him, he's going to be pretty upset. He may change sites or quit playing all together.

Of course, I'm not saying anything new.

re: Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

One could argue that 2p2 is terrible for the game in a million ways... or that duecescracked or cardrunners are terrible for the game...

but you know what's ACTUALLY terrible for the game? UIGEA. If you REALLY want to try to save poker, do something to fight that.

re: Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

It is a Pain in the ass especially if you play hu. At any point there are 20 hu tables on ps with one guy sitting and like 2-3 willing to play me even though I'm only a marginal winner there at 100nl. When I open my own table sometimes players will join in sit out for a minute and then leave without playing a hand, which obviously means they're blocking up the seat and checking up on stats. It's taken bumhunting to a whole new level..

re: Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

I agree that PTR is bad for the game, especially HU. One good thing about it however, and pretty much the only reason I use it is to see (when possible) who is a hit n running pos. I insta mark hit n runners and that's the only comments I will ever leave.

I understand hit n running is as much a part of hu poker as moronic comments are in nvg - But it would still be cool to see less of both.

This is not true, especially hu. All you have to do is call a couple of raises with bad hands and theyll give you tons of action..

I mean they're bumhunters for a reason, they don't think about the game too deeply.

Do you really think PS and FT have any control over tableratings? If they did, it never would have gone up.

re: Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

I read somewhere in MSNL that the guy who owns tableratings in based in texas and the reason he has access to stars hhs in because he is a security consultant for them..

Don't know how true that is though.

If you're a break even or losing player I'd think twice before just giving two more cents away.

No, he's not an idiot.

TR is terrible for poker. I would love to see it and all the training sites closed down.

Unfortunately it is not likely to happen anytime soon.

re: Petition for FT and PS to get rid of Tableratings

to bunch training sites with tableratings isn't even close. TableRatings steals peoples info and then charges for it. That alone should have every site doing everything they can to get rid of them. Quite the contrary is happening though, I believe Absolute Poker actually bought ad space from them recently.

I don't understand how they can observe all the tables.

Can't the sites just make it so you have to login to observe?

Where do I sign!

Get rid of TableRatings NOW!

Poker is about giving action to get action. These bum hunters NEVER give action and only take action from the unknowing rec players.

It has killed the games

meh i had regs denying me HU action even though i was down over a 20,000 hand sample

Agree. Nothing wrong with wanting to study. Besides it's not like anyone can just become a member and instantly be good. It takes a lot of hard work and effort that majority don't bother to put in. Not to mention a lot don't understand how to effectively utilize a training site.

On the other hand any numb nut can by hh's and be a stats robot.
