Poker Disclosure

I’m sure they have a big backlog of requests they want to integrate but they’re waiting on the HTML5 version release as opposed to making changes to the old flash version.
Just out of curiosity tho, are you suggesting they develop an algorithm to automatically show winning hands?
If so, I doubt that would ever happen since we have the option now to turn off auto-muck now.
Once you’ve played this league enuf you’ll get used to showing/not mucking.
Over the last 500 hands I’ve played in a must show league (I also play in Poker Amusement) I’ve only accidentally hit muck twice and one of those times was last night.
If I can get used to it anyone can :grin:


#33

Right, I wouldn’t ask them to make changes to the flash game, but it’s the right time to make requests for the HTML5 version since we know they’re actively developing it.

Adding a mandatory winner show should be a simple task, just a configuration option checkbox when setting up the tournament, no different from setting the number of seats per table, the starting chips and buy-in, the blind structures, or other options. It would override the player’s preference only for the time they’re at the table, and wouldn’t actually change their account settings.

It will be better than the honor system, but the honor system will have to do for now.


#34

I’m not so sure it would be that simple.
I say that because I was warned by RPP before I started the league that it (no-muck rule) “couldn’t/wouldn’t be enforceable.”
We have to also understand, RPP is not crazy about leagues as this statement posted in the initial thread I started regarding the league "We limit the number of leagues for much of the same reasons we don’t have private tables. We don’t want to divert a ton of traffic away from the public tables."


#35

It’s not enforceable precisely because the feature to enforce it hasn’t been built, and they’re phasing out the flash-based game. But when they build the replacement in HTML5, it’s easy to design and implement a configuration option like this. I program games as a hobby, and I know this from first hand experience.

Programmatically, it’s one additional condition to check, and one additional logical path for how the hand resolver flows, and one additional checkbox in the tournament designer. It’s probably maybe half a day’s worth of actual work, if that.

I can fully understand them not wanting to update the flash code that’s going away. And I can fully understand if they don’t want to implement every suggestion they get from the users. But that said, this is a reasonable, simple, and straightforward thing to do. They might have a lot of higher priority stuff to work on, but this is something that could be added to a backlog of work requests that they can triage, accept, or deny as they feel appropriate.


#36

I have no reason to doubt you since I’m a moron when it comes to coding but I’m not sure they would want to even spend a half day of resources to integrate it since there are only a handful of players that might want to use it.
You and I and most in our league prolly would use it but then you gotta ask yourself…what percentage of players (including Poker Amusement league) do we make up compared to all of RPP.
That said, you might want to send your suggestion to support…I think there’s a thread on suggestions in the forum too but I can’t find it at the moment.


#37

That was a good game last night… If everybody could play we
would really have a good game. I heard some say 9pm. was
to late for them. I can play most anytime if we had to play some
at an earlier time…


#38

Well keep in mind guys, nothing is set in stone yet.
I consider the first few months to be a trial/experimental run so your opinions are always welcome.
If you can get the 9pm is too late ppl to play earlier let me know.
It seems the Tues/Thurs PL Omaha hi-lo at 4pm ET isnt going to get enuf interest.


#39

Yay, I finally won one!
I found it very interesting after it became heads up with k8464.
We were playing pretty fast and then we decided to go even faster.
I wouldn’t call it serious poker but it was like speed chess and a lot of fun.
We were playing hands like this in just seconds.
Anyway, I added another player this morning and waiting back from another.
Hopefully we can get to where we can at least fill up a dang table…yall tell ur friends!


#40

Welcome to our new members, North49 and Sally93!
I was kind of amazed at the roller coaster leaderboard last night.
Very tight, sometimes aggressive, table for sure…It’s been a while since I was that focused on a game…lotsa fun!

#41

Yea they ganged up on me and knocked me out early…lol.


#42

I was running last for a big part of the game so I know how you feel :grin:


#43

I want to point something out since this league is supposed to be somewhat “educational”.
This is the hand you were knocked out on bige.
I’m not sure if you were trying to slow play your pocket kings or not bud, but I believe had you raised preflop instead of calling, everyone would have folded and you would have taken the chip lead.
That said, if the situation were reversed I might have played them the same…if that does happen, I hope someone will point it out to me.
I honestly believe that my game has improved somewhat since this league started…maybe that’s because it makes us really pay attention and forces us to recalculate our odds at every street.


#44

Sorry if I’m interloping…

I think a pot raise was warranted on the button with two limpers in front and the blinds left to act. Otherwise, you’re headed to a 5-way flop with pocket Kings which are unlikely to improve. I’m thinking you would have folded your A9o against such a raise @GrandyB? In which case, @bige13, you pick up 3.5BB for your trouble if everyone else folds and incur no risk of getting outdrawn (fold equity is great). Pretty good considering the effective stacks at this point. Or, one opponent calls/shoves and you’re a favorite against almost everything.

Post flop, I think a lay down would have been prudent in the face of the pot bet on the flop. Randy was repping a paired ace or better leaving you with two outs.


#45

I know it… You got me fair and square!! I was trying to build up a little

sympathy for the Mon. night game… lol


#46

Yes, at that table for sure…everyone plays tight and if someone bets big we (usually) know that player thinks they have the nuts…and we usually find we made a good fold when the hand is disclosed…not always but usually (sometimes it may be a semi-bluff).


#47

:rofl::rofl:


#48

This league is already a success… see how much fun we are having already!!!:birthday::clock9::joy::joy:


#49

It was great time, good players having some fun and yes, a wild ride at times.
See you all again soon :smile:


#50

Wild ride indeed… as I recall we were all chip leaders at one point or another last night.
I really like that everyone in our league seems to like to play smart, patient, tight and aggressive.
I just wish there were more of us :wink:


#51

I didn’t feel like I played poorly last night but I still came in last …what a difference a week can make.
Pretty embarrassing when bige13 beat me and he didn’t even make it.
…here’s the hand where Jim finally put me out of my misery :rofl:
