You get no sympathy from me. All you do is take take take. let the rec. players get something back while they are losing all their money. You better get used to this because this is the way it will be from now on. Poker sites are no longer going to cater to the people who bring nothing to the poker economy.

+1

Table camping
Scripting
Seat hopping
Relentless hunting of fish who clearly don't want to play vs a particular reg

If you have taken part in any of the above then you can go cry somewhere else. Maybe improve your behaviour before they make things so bad you have to leave the site.

ChoakMyDee are you that stupid? They increased rakeback for fishies for 0.5% you think that will help them?
I don't have anything against to give same rakeback to all players let's say 20% but this is ridiculous and it is just excuse for cutting down vip and platinum for 7% and 5%.

Yeah, no one here bumhunt ...
Lot of brave regs here, so funny, and when it comes to poker no one wants to play HU for 2 mins...

I realize change is difficult for you. This is just your initial reaction, the same as the angry whites when they first let blacks drink from the same fountain. You will eventually come around and accept it. Just about every poker site is now making adjustments to make it more attractive to the rec. players...after all that is where the money comes from.

Calling me stupid was OK but you had a problem with this. Of course it's a terrible analogy, it's humor ffs.

Not sure how to fix this in your case, but i guess a good solution would be 888caption (you will google it easily), i myself use partycaption and am pretty happy with it.

Actually it's great they are doing smth about seatscripts, it became very annoying with all seats beeing Reserved all the time. However confiscating funds is too much imo

Re: Official pacific poker regulars thread

Another rake increase + next to no rakeback is pretty ridiculous. As is the 24 hour warning.

Hi Michael,

On 27/10/2016 we are changing our rake policy for some of our cash games.

The new rake structure will work as follows:

$2/$4 up to $25/$50 tables: the rake will be 5% (up to $5)
$50/$100 tables: the rake will be 1% (up to $10)
$100/$200 tables: the rake will be 1% (up to $20)

Re: Official pacific poker regulars thread

Wonder how the traffic at 888 has been affected by removing rakeback.
I used to think people were nits and classless bumhunters for sitting out as soon as the rec left, but nowadays I completely understand. I don't even bother playing weaker regs HU these days, because of the insane winrate I'd need in order to make it worthwhile.
Sometimes now there's not even a single nl200 table running, because people don't bother to start tables. Reminiscing of the days me and Fayth would play HU at 6-max tables, paying a "fair" rake, and recs would occasionally come join us. This way, the recs wouldn't feel hunted, and tables got started all over the place.

I mean, I understand that the poker economy is drying up, and companies want to try and maintain previous profits, but somewhere in their net present value analysis they surely must have accounted for all of the extra money they are taking out of the economy, and the effect this has on the action. If only they could see things more medium to long-term, and not only try to maximize short-term profits, we'd all be better off. Sadly for online poker, this doesn't seem to be the case. I'd venture to guess that online poker at 888 is completely dead by the end of 2020.
