    Hi I play on the ps4. Seeking friends to chat with on line. Conversations MUST BE G RATED NO FOUL LANGUAGE OR SEXUAL COMMENT
  6. We're trying to start a diamond tourney on XB, its currently 10:40pm UTC. All are welcome.
  7. Earlier
  8. i was just at an ALL platinum ranked table and went out 5th, however it said -24 points? I've never seen this happen, as its usually 18 points deducted
  9. You miss the fault. In the rewards given. First..When you play as a Diamond player,do you think 360K makes any difference ?? Usually by being a Diamond ranked player you should have more than enough cash in your bankroll already. Playing against Platinum players means that the other players at the table ALL have a certain skill level. They are beyond Silver and Gold. The obvious point you are missing out on is this : I don't WANT to play Platinum players,but I DO want to play Ranked,to improve my ranked points. So I want to play Diamond ranked players in a Diamond ranked Tournament. BUT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH PLAYERS TO FILL THE TABLE . So I'm forced to play Platinum players in a Platinum tournament. And if I get 2nd or 3rd i either get +6 points or -4 points. Winning less I accept. Like say 20..10..5 instead of 30..18...6. I think most can see the logic in this. But don't punish a 3rd place by giving MINUS points. Top 3 is supposed to be "Winners"
  10. You are getting a reward (in this case potentially up to 360K, plus loot) for playing against ostensibly weaker player. So yes, it being a risk is justified.
  11. So if you know what a motherboard is, then please explain exactly which "motherboard components" are required for PS4/XboxOne/PC crossplay, which aren't already on those motherboards, and why exactly. And why are these "motherboard components" currently stopping crossplay from being possible.
  12. That would be a good idea. You as well.

    I'm going to try to refrain from posting and see how that goes. You have a good day.
  14. I dont need to hear your life story or why everyone should feel sorry for you, that's not the point. The point is, people dont post make believe things on here for the fun of it or to troll a POS game's forum. You are not always right. Sarcasm works both ways. It seems you can't take it as well as you like to dish it out. If you dont experience the problem or said event that others have , then why are you even trying to explain why they happen? Ranked tournaments have rake also. You are right that what you actually win has no rake....but you pay an "entry fee" with your buy-in. Rake is essentially a commission fee taken by the cardroom or this case PP. No matter the size or amount, usually 2.5 to 10 percent in real world, it is still considered rake. I experience the triple blind or broken straddle mostly in ring games. I say broken straddle because it's not higher then BB. I sat at a $5k & $10k table to save my losses when I went all in if I lost. I took multiple videos with my phone , Samsung Note 9, but for some reason, even in the correct format, the forum wont accept them. I get the failed upload message for every video and picture though. The picture I posted is a screenshot off of my phone. Somehow that is ok to post but nothing else is ?? Finally, I seek no pleasure in arguing with anyone on here. This is a forum. People post their experiences and others voice their opinions. Most people take what others say to heart and get offended easily or simply read posts out of context. To assume that one's own experiences are the standard and way of right is absurd. Knowledge is learned through experience. Not $10 words thrown into sentences, soaked in sarcasm.
  15. This is a valid complaint. for diamond players. Would it be possible to form a group of diamond players and come to some sort of agreement to play a special diamond ranked tourney? The first week of each season, its also difficult to form a platinum tourney.

    Again. I play 2 and sometimes 3 ranked tournaments every day, on XB, and I've never experienced double blinds. When I play, a buy-in amount and an entry fee is deducted from my bankroll. The chips used during the game have no relationship to the winnings I receive. I don't waste my time playing 5k or 10k casual tournaments, but when I do play casual games, I play at the 20k or above level. Again the chips used have no relationship to what is used during the game. Are you playing ring games? Perhaps we are arguing apples and oranges. I'll test your claim on my separate Steam account and see. If you would be so kind as to provide a screenshot of the double blinds problem. The developers would make the necessary changes to correct the problem. The are quite responsive if you are civil. I invite you to send them a PM with your concerns. Finally, in early grade school (1947), 6 of us students were not taught phonetics because our parents were not of the predominate religion of a certain Western State. Sometimes I put to much faith in the spell checker. Sorry.
  17. +20..10..5 points would be much more logic
  18. I think THIS show clearly the Fault in the point system,once a player reach Diamond ranked. If he gets there and want to play a Ranked game..he will most likely have to play in Platinum. I just did that..got 3rd and LOST 4 points. Now can anyone explain the positive thing it is to get MINUS points for placing 3rd in a Tournament ???? I understand that from the outset "choosing" to play below your tier,gets you less points. But in reality I can't choose,as there are not Diamond players to play against. So any Diamond player knowing that 20 is max points for 1st. And maybe 6 points for 2nd ...And MINUS 4 points for 3rd will not play again once he reach Diamond.. Pitty it is that way.
  19. Since this forum wont allow my videos from my phone, you will have to actually do it yourself. Multiple times I went all in with $200 or $300 in the pot at a $5k and $10k tables. When I officially won the hand and backed out, I had $144 and $282 total chips gained. How does that happen on a game that doesn't allow you to bet in $1 increments???!!!! And what "other" poker website am I trying to PROMOTE... ITS PROMOTE.. I guess your intellectual capacity missed that......
  20. Now after a week I've reached Diamond Rank. Now if I want to play Ranked..I have to go Platinum,as there is not enough players that have reached Diamond yet. The problem start by instead of winning 30 points...i can only win 20. I could accept 25,but seriously..10 point deduction ? And of course you risk -40 instead of -30 for last place,being Diamond in Platinum ranked game. If it only give me 20..hov much for 2nd..3rd ??? Playing Platinum level indicate a certain skill level with the players,so it's not a walk over even if I'm Diamond. Seem a bit counter productive,if you ask me to have you rather NOT playing than risk playing. Almost indicating "Don't play more if you reach Diamond"
  21. PP DOES HAVE A RAKE !!!! Next time YOU play, either take off your shoes so YOU can count or bring a calculator to do simple math after each hand complete!!!!! Open your eyes and shut your mouth for once !!!! And if YOU had the intellectual capacity, YOU would have read his post correctly. He asked WHY ARE THERE 2(TWO) BIG BLINDS OR SMALL BLINDS. Not, why is there a big and small. WHY ARE THERE TWO!!!!!

    A classic example of a computer troll. Make negative false statements to insight comment. If you had the intellectual capacity to research a statement before you post it, you would have Googled "Rules for Hold-em poker", there you would have found that Blinds are a part of the game. If you would have taken the time to even play PP, you also would find that PP does not collect rake. The question remains, why are you trying to permote other poker website on this forum?

    Yes, I used to alter them by soldering iron, to accommodate programming requirements of our development staff. The programmer had rewritten his own version of IBM's Teleprocessing Management System. BTW, he went on to write Apple's first file manganate system, by himself. Those were the days!
  24. It builds the pot, which makes the rake higher per hand. It should not be like this, but it seems like this game has lost all support. Unless it pertains to them selling fake chips. I highly doubt it will be fixed. Most people that play this game, and on this forum, are too stupid to realize what is going on. You wouldn't stop until you got forced to......would you???
  25. So why does it seem to affect only some people but not others? I don't see an unusual amount of bad beats.
  26. The problem is not the amount of responses and engagement. The problem is that you tend to spout complete nonsense when it comes to technical stuff. "Motherboard components" have absolutely nothing to do with inter-console crossplay or syncing accounts between consoles. It's a complete non-sequitur out of left field. It doesn't exactly help that you said, and I quote, "they would need to share proprietary software including motherboard components", as if "motherboard components" were software. Do you even know what a motherboard is?
  27. I've managed to reduce the number of 'bad beats' by changing the way I play. By closely paying attention to what the other players are doing ,, and to develop the self discipline to react to the events occurring. There's a reason someone over bets the hand, try to figure out why. Tor, based on your example in the "bubble" post, in casual tournaments you're not reaching third or better 67% of the games you play. I'd suggest you figure out why so many of you are losing.
  28. I do play for fun and because friends of mine play too. But it don't change the fact that the issues with the cards are there. I only wish they would investigate it ,as there are so many saying the same thing as I am. Would love it if these improbable "bad beats" did not happen at the frequency they do. It all have to do with how the game is programmed.
  29. No,they have just made a bad job in general,and it affects everybody playing it. The problem is,they do not care.
