Bovada Down?
Yea, me too. I'm curious as to who got how much, and if the entire pp was paid out. I had 60bbs and I probably made abolut $5 more than some dude with 10bbs waiting on a random ace to shove..And I guess they took the rake, which is a fee paid to them by us for a service. A service that they didn't perform. I left merge bc of this bs.. I was running so good..Disgusting

Bovada Down?
What is the policy on payouts for cancelled tournaments' And why does there seem to be a tournament restarted in it's place that I'm not playing in' When I click "take my seat" it takes me to the same table number that I was at...of the aforementioned tournament, with player 39 in my seat. I was crushing..6th of 62, 27 paid..like 60 bbs..I hope they pay equity, and the $1200 that was already eliminated doesn't disappear..Soooo gross..you don't get in that spot in every tournament..wp bros..btw, cancel it or restart it, I'm getting tired of waiting..I wasn't looking to put in a session, just ...

Merge and Bovada (Bodog) Deposits & Cashouts
Carbon Requested- 3/29 Processed-6/5 Received-6/7 I had a very hard time cashing the check. My bank wouldn't cash it, and insisted on a two-day hold (It was Fri. and Tue was the day quoted for it to clear) Went to Wal-Mart and numerous Indian owned establishments, and every single one looked at me like a criminal, and wouldn't really give me a reason why they wouldn't cash it..they just wouldn't. I eventually went to an old friend's store who used to cash my paychecks. I requested a sportsbook cashout on 5/21 and just got the message in my inbox that it has been processed, and I'm assuming ...

Where have the merge guarantees gone?
Dude' Did you guys actually endorse Merge' I've been waiting 10 weeks on a cashout, and it seems like this is pretty standard for all merge sites, as I know for a fact that merge accounts are handled together. Bovada and ACR are cashing out in like a week or less. All the "good software" in the world doesn't trump that

Carbon down?
Not working for me either. I'm also in TN. Carbon and Sportsbook that I know of, I'm assuming the whole merge network. This could be no bueno. A regional outage is odd.

Where have the merge guarantees gone?
IKR, I've been off with a broken foot for a few days, but this is my last day off too. I'm in a plo and plho tournament...meh, needed a change anyway, I just hope they don't do away with them, they are having trouble getting the gtds straight. It's like they're actually trying to suck, to see how much suck we can endure

Merge and Bovada (Bodog) Deposits & Cashouts
Thanks for moving this Admin. It is doing no good here, we need a seperate Merge cashout thread. Bovada and Merge are like apples to oranges right now, 2 weeks to 2 months. Way to consolidate bro. Now I can read how easy breezy the bovada cashouts are going, while I'm getting my cell phone shut off

Merge and Bovada (Bodog) Deposits & Cashouts
This is a warning to everybody looking for a good site to play on post-bf. I've been waiting over 2 months on a cashout, and can't even get a timeframe on when I should expect it. I'm judging all Merge sites by Carbon's actions, but I think this isn't a stretch, as I'm pretty sure they use the same processors. I just initiated two through sportsbook, and expect pretty much the same results. Don't let the juicy guarantees lure you in. There's no point hitting a four-figure score when you can't touch your money for 2-3 months. Bovada and America's Cardroom (winning network) is the ticket IMO. ...

Ideal VPIP:PFR ratio for PLO?
I've "dabbled" with PLO for awhile, but I've just recently begun to really enjoy it. I was wondering what an "ideal" ratio for VPIP to PFR is for PLO. I play a 21:14-18 style when playing NLH. I've heard that that is probably the most profitable ratio, electing to raise or three-bet over flatting 2/3-3/4 of the time. I never open limp, but choose to overlimp rather than iso probably more than I should, but anyway. I run kind of erratic stats in plo, but I usually play like a 45:12 or 40:10, and can go as high as 60+vpip and prob 15 pfr. So I go from like 2/3-3/4 of the time to around 1/4 of ...

Merge and Bovada (Bodog) Deposits & Cashouts
They did send me a pretty prompt response. I don't think it was automated, but wasn't extremely helpful, and only moderately reassuring. I started my 1st weeks exclusion today. Merge kind of set the post bf standard for turnaround times. It looks like bovada has set the new standard. I'm about to make the switch, if I ever get my merge monies

Pokerstars Player Meeting
I'd like to see a card option so that when your cards are dealt, you have to click them to see what they are. In some shorthanded spots I'd rather not see what I'm opening..or 3 betting sometimes. I'm in the u.s. so I probably won't ever ee this change, but I''d use it as an option on some tables

Merge and Bovada (Bodog) Deposits & Cashouts
Carbon requested 3/28 '''' As soon as I requested the cashout I started running horribly. I'm talkin AA cracked by A8 aipf, AA and KK cracked by AK aipf etc...lol..I have about 15% equity on my coin flips..lol..sick cooler after sick cooler..This has happened before, and I cancelled the withdrawals..I lost the 20 buy ins I left on there, So I emailed them and told them that I was self excluding myself each week until I get my money, and basically told them I was also switching to bovada until then..Weird line'

Big fold, or too invested?
I agree with my check on the river giving away my hand..I just think the river bet woulda left me too short..And I would have had trouble finding a fold after I bet river...And for a "believable" bet it would have taken me below 20 bbs..Basically there are two hands I can beat..45 or a floated busted flush draw I can beat and ALOT that beats me..CT, I feel good bc this is basically my feelings..I did fold this time, but most times call off, and am wrong too often..This time however he showed 45 for a busted straight draw..I don't hate my fold, just a gross spot..I thought it was nitty at the ...

Big fold, or too invested?
I'm thinking the whole time about getting paid off by KJ..so secure in my read..Then the J pairs..I'm aware of the standard play..But I don't see him floating two streets..and if he called off with a mid pair..I have to think he's checking behind instead of turning his hand into a bluff..so his bet is very polarized imo..My thought process wasn't far off..just a tough spot I guess..Thanks for the breakdown, I respect your opinion..I'll post the results of the hand later tonight..btw I know my bet sizing was a little weak..but that was by design..I was trying to induce a bluff..or a raise from ...
