POKER/GAMBLING NEWS

Recommended Posts

In an attempt to attract more players, Full Tilt Poker will feature various casino games on its site.

 

Interesting tactic, particularly the low key approach in how it is being done... I mean, I get the site's newsletters and read (or at least skim) most of them yet I don't remember this move ever being announced ???

Don't Give In To Amaya (5th of November Protest)

 

Big poker forum 2+2 announced protest against new Pokerstars policy.

 

Amaya/Pokerstars have a monopoly on online poker and are making any changes that they believe will increase their bottom line. They have just increased rake across most games.

Added a 2.5% margin on cashouts and deposits when changing currencies.

It is time for players to do something. While it may seem that player power is limited, history has shown that organized player movement can have results. The alternative is to do nothing and let Amaya walk all over you.

 

A few ideas:

 

i) A mass player sitout on the 5th of November at 6pm(GMT). At this time you open as many tables as you can and sitout for 2 hours. Explain to other players why this is happening.

ii) Do not use the name pokerstars anywhere. If you do this it gives the company soft advertising. Pokerstars was the old company, Amaya is the present. Call them Amaya.

iii) An organized player movement away from Amaya. Players join together as a union/single group and approach the other sites. If this group of players is significant enough they should be able to negotiate a deal with those sites that gives them amazing rewards and customer service.

 

How can you protest/what should you do?

 

- Do not play on Pokerstars/Full Tilt on the 5th of November

- Withdraw money from the sites

- Spread the word and tell others

--> Really nice idea. Breaking ToS by "mass sitout" ended up with temporary bans by Poker Stars  LOL I guess people never learn.

They're certainly "raking" it in (pardon the pun).

How can (insert any successful business ever) increase their profit.

 

They aren't robbing anyone, they offer a service for a price.  Don't play if price is too high.

 

I feel for the super nova elite players who won't receive the benifits they expected next year, stars should have given more warning.

 

For everyone else though, it's just reality.  Amaya has tons of data theyve analyzed and they believe they will be most successful by implementing the changes.

Sit & Go 2.0, the next evolution of poker!

This revolutionary new twist on the traditional Sit & Go creates opportunities for bigger prize pools and more players paid, each and every game. You determine your fate!  The decision you make, the card you pull, makes all the difference.

How it works

 

The rules of Sit & Go 2.0 are no different than those of a standard nine-handed No Limit Hold‘em sit-n-go. The difference comes before players’ hands are even dealt, and only affects the prize pool amount and number of places paid.

 

Before the tournament begins, each player receives one card face down. The player to the immediate left of the button then turns over his or her card, revealing it to be either red or black. A red card puts a stop to the pregame action and means that the prize pool will remain the same as it was outlined during registration. In that case, the total prize pool will be equal to 7X the buy-in, with only the top two players getting paid. When a red card is revealed, the cards are shuffled and a standard sit-n-go is played out.

 

If the first player turns over a black card, however, the prize pool is increased to a factor of 9X the buy-in, and will guarantee payment to the top three finishers. The action then falls on the next player to the left, and continues until a red card is revealed. Each time a black card is turned over, the prize pool increases, creating a potential pool of up to 51.3X the buy-in, with six places being paid.

 

The likelihood of all nine players receiving black cards is very low, of course, and happens around once every 1,180 trials. Roughly 75% of the time, the pregame action will end immediately with a red card or with just one player producing a black card.

Coming Soon, exclusively at Americas Cardroom
