Email sent on the 24th, money received on the 24th. I just hadn't checked my account until now. Can confirm UK bank transfers are working fine, and appear to be really quick.

Small side shout out to the document verification guys at Party too, took sub 10 minutes between upload docs and getting confirmation they were verified to enable accounts transfers and all that.

Disgusting. His stable. His attitude. Being a Pro at PartyPoker leads to people leaving PartyPoker. Hope they realize it soon.

All communications have now been responded to with Mike, and he will hopefully confirm in this thread later today that he has received the $500 once he confirms his details. He received a full apology for the handling of this situation, it was two years ago when this happened, and whilst that's no excuse, the company has took great steps since then employing staff in the necessary departments so bitB is ran much more efficiently and this situation would never happen now.

Thanks

Re: Five reasons to not play on Party Poker

Can confirm that Raymond has made contact with regards to sending the $500 and I will obviously post in here when I receive it. Fair play if they stick to their word but it's a shame that the situation happened in the first place, even if it was a couple of years ago.

Are the zoom cashgames still dead there or have the bots come back online? Very dissapointed in Partys response to it. Don't think the penny has dropped and they have yet to properly monitor the phenomenon.

(For those who don't know, everytime the software is update bots are unable to play while their programming is reconfigured to handle the update)

A couple of years back I applied for the 'CEO' job at BitBStaking (probably the job Raymond is doing). I can't remember if it was before or after but Pads had a PGC thread claiming he wanted to run the most professional stable. Anyway, I got messed around, I was told interviews would be Monday but wasn't given a specific time so I was at my computer from 9am until 5pm waiting to hear. I think I tried to contact Pads that day and a couple of days later but heard absolutely nothing back in the end. I had been out of work for a few months at this stage so there's no doubt I was a bit bitter about the situation, especially because of the image he was trying to portray in his PGC.

I posted the story in this thread and he claimed he was 99% sure it didn't happen and that he would send $500 if it did. I emailed bitBstaking and after a while received the payment.

Re: Five reasons to not play on Party Poker

Firstly, yeah, apparently the cash games were literally dead straight after the update because the bots need to reconfigure etc. I haven't played on Party in a week or so, so I can't confirm, but Pads did say in another thread that that wasn't the case. I'm not sure who's right if I'm honest, but I do now believe the bot situation is extremely bad on Party.

Secondly, delighted you got your $500. Wp sir!

Re: Five reasons to not play on Party Poker

Disgusting that everyone knows pp is infested with bots and they can't fix the problem. I guess they don't care as long as they can still get enough retards like gazzybusto to play the bots.

Re: Five reasons to not play on Party Poker

why don't we make a thread were we collect data of regs to find out bots and party reps can then investigate. we do the work for them and they freeze accounts/get video recording like stars is doing. always the same accounts stop playing after each update but play every day usually (lol obvious)

example: freeze suspicious account, send email to send recording 30min where they explain their play while playing + webcam

I believe it was worse this time around due to hand histories being affected.

Don't think its enough for twoplustwo to catch some bots - HM2 was affected also. Somehow PT4 had no problems whatsoever.

There are a number of people who said the games were dead after the update- more inclined to believe them myself.

If software upgrades mean bots have to be re-programmed so are out of action for a little while then if Party Poker want to eradicate their site of bots, can't this simply be done by performing a tiny little software upgrade once per day that takes a matter of seconds or a couple of minutes?

If it takes more than 24 hours for bots to be re-programmed then a "fake" upgrade each day would kill them stone dead.

If the bots go away would the fast forward become softer than stars?

Party's 'fix' was to stop the HH's so players couldn't keep calling them out on the bots they were catching.

100% correct. And employees like Collette and Patrick hide from this thread. If my business was infested with cheaters and rule breakers and this forum and thread had ANY clues to stop it i would privately message anyone who had any clues to investigate this. Could you imagine a bank having potential cheats effecting customers and employees of the bank so non chalant. It is a disservice to customers, and to the ibtegrity of poker and its customers. It’s pathetic. No wonder online poker is dead. But hey! Wait for the software improvements -coming summer 2017.

Re: Five reasons to not play on Party Poker

I have played many hands at fast forward nl100 and I can assure you that something is not normal here. I have even pointed out one analysis of nl100 ff exposing most regs were losing at the tables.

It's suspicious to say at least, maybe 10 gto bots are just crushing everyone and eating all the regs money, or to say it in other words, the fishes money.

The worst part is I suspect Party Poker knows this, the bots may be from the inside.

Re: Five reasons to not play on Party Poker

Lots of people have noticed the pp Ff games feel totally abnormal to other poker sites. Even good solid players I know say the exact same thing. i played one session there a few months ago just to see whats up, and in 4k hands lost set over set 5 times, and lost every other pot with sets also. The place is nuts.
