  1. Boosts work exactly as advertised. They boost your rep for a limited period. I have no idea why you would think it has an effect on gameplay. Seems you made a mistake.
  2. Yup. Nobody has ever gotten to Diamond in the history of this game. This message brought you by the Department of Sarcasm.
  3. You have noticed you’re not playing with real money, right? It has an effect on how people play. That’s why you see people win with low percentage hands in this game that you’d never see IRL. How many times have you folded pre-flop only to see your garbage folded turn to gold? In this game, people actually play those garbage cards, and sometimes they’ll hit. That’s poker. Maybe it’s not the game for you.
  4. Be aware, forum guidelines prohibit calling out players by name. I will say, when I see two players with similar names like that, I assume they’re involved in team play, perhaps in unfairly in some cases. Gotta say, as cheating goes, I’m ok with chip sharing - if I can get a couple of people lowering their stacks against me, so much the better.
  5. The fly on the ointment is here, you’re also playing against amateurs. I recently had someone shove on me preflop with 23 off vs my KK. Sure enough he ran out his straight. Sometimes, you just can’t avoid the bad beat.
  6. This has all been talked about before. I was in a live game, 8 players at the table. Three of us all in. AA, KK, one guy folded TT and I was the sad sack with 88. If it can happen, it will happen at some point.
  7. As I understand it, it can’t be done. Three platforms, three separate accounts.
  8. Not sure how I can be missing your point when you have so clearly belabored it to death. My point is that not everyone agrees with you, so please stop saying everybody does. There are lots of people here who have played as much poker as you claim to have played who understand that bad beats happen, especially with people gambling with play money who’ll play down to the river with crap or who think an all-in with 9-3 off is a good bluff. Otherwise, they’d just be beats. Most who do agree with you have moved on. Which would be a sensible choice.
  9. If everybody agreed, this whole thread would be half as long. There are donkeys out there and people like you who are clearly so expert. Sometime you get lucky, sometimes you don’t. Live with it. They won’t be changing the game.
  10. So Tor, you have never ever been on the right side of a one or two outer? I guess the magic algorithm really hates you.
  11. Yeah, it sucks. Last night I had Queens full and the only way I could lose was if my opponent had pocket rockets. Sure enough..... Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug.....
  12. Tor, I have strongly resisted the urge to respond to you but I just can’t anymore. There are a bunch of ways to get beaten AK v 23. Yeah, I’d probably never make that call, but there are lots of people who would. AK is at BEST, a toss up. If you don’t hit, there are at least six cards in the deck that beat you. So you hit a bad run out. It happens. It will continue to happen, because it it poker. Sometimes it happens more often because people take silly risks with play money. For all your vaunted skill, there is also an element of chance to the game. Learn to live with it.
  13. I don’t recall a debate about it. I do recall that it worked and more people were able to attain higher levels.
  14. How about that any disincentive to play the game for any player is bad and that incentives are good? The only complaint I could see would be rewards being issues every 60 days instead of every 30 days. And you could solve that complaint easily by doubling the reward. Maybe I’m wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time.
