Stop Lotto All-In Play
What’s the problem Maxon?
On some table it is more bingo poker than normal poker Specialy in low were they come in with 1600 go allin and win an go away again.
Yeah, that’s always going to be a problem with low stakes on play money tables. If anyone has ideas how to discourage this type of play then please post them here!
just cup the bet. like if blind 8 your bet can be like 5 times thet, but after flop; the preflop raise by 5 time etc. just on selected rooms.
- Only 3 re-buys of play chips allowed per hour may help stop this a bit
This site could be soo much better without all lottoplayers and all ppl that just let the clock run out when they wants to check, call or fold. You must make new rules about this if you want this to be a great poker site.
Are you playing No-Limit? Just do not call the all in. Go to another table maybe.
I agree with Pummelr again. Whats up with that. I don’t like this all-in practice and don’t play that way. My solution has been to play accordingly – be patient and go all-in with a good hand or wait until they get the chip stack they want to start playing in a more standard manner.
Replay could delay their return back to the table by a couple of minutes after a bust. After all, in a casino it takes time to reload.
RP had FL HOLD EM, but seems the bets a bit low and the rooms is ‘‘hide’’ in the bottom of the list, and no 6 seated rooms ether . If this problems adjusted , Im sure the new players chose this over popular rooms. And this problem no problem any more. Other site-s also got this;- Only 3 re-buys of play chips allowed per hour may help stop this a bit. So leave alone popular rooms; london garden; replay treasure; flush hippodrome;manzanillo jewelry; takoroa diamonds; ( rats and omaha-s) but change the rest to FL 6 seated, higher bet. Then all solved with small effort.
Thanks marcipan, I’ve added the 3 buy-ins of chips per hour idea here: http://support.replaypoker.com/replaypoker/topics/limit_buy_ins_in_the_same_ring_game_to_a_max_of_3_in_any_1_hour_period and we’ll update the configuration of the FL games in an upcoming update to the ring-games, as well as make it easier to see which holdem games are Fixed Limit and which are No Limit
Why is there not an option to immediately report a player who is cheating by over bidding and hogging the tables. Overbidding continues at every table. The same players at multiple tables. Reporting the problem is not enough and checks by employees does not help either. So far since I recently joined I have yet to experince a fair, competitive friendly game. If a solution is already in place please advise. Thanks
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled hog bidders and table snatchers.
I merged your thread with this one, I strongly believe if you read back, you find some answear and solution amongst the previous comments.
you really took the energy to complain about all in on holdem no limit. and a free site…must be a liberal…we should start a watch group against this all in OBAMAnation play.
NEXT people will praying to god they win the all in.
I think this is an important discussion topic. I don’t think we can tell players to play in a certain way, but I think we can influence their play, by making subtle changes. For example the 3 re-buys per hour rule could be one way of doing it, another could be to limit high stake players to the medium or high stake tables. I’m sure there are a bunch of ways we can influence play. I’d love to hear suggestions from players and we’re committed to make the site a really enjoyable experience for everyone, new and old players a like. So let’s hear you thoughts people!
limiting high stakes player, perhaps like myself is not quite a fair thing. Sometimes all the seats are taken in med and no one is playing in high.Or, maybe there is someone playing in low that i would like to play with. Just because a person has a good number of chips doesnt limit them to a certain area. Does it? I hope not! I truely enjoy this site over all that i have played at, and I would hope that if i lost 3 rebuys in an hour I wouldnt have to sit for an hr to play more. not sure this works either. Thanks again for your hard work here.
Able to play other room, just limit buy in in the same room. You are not bingo player? I believe its wont effect you anyway.
Low stake realy for learners, to implement the limiting high stake players , first RP raise the players on high. Also, may some rake system added and if high stake players go to low stake, would pay lil more. But again its wont effect you too much, we talk about very low ammount chips.
Thanks for the feedback gopo. Do you have any suggestions on how to influence or encourage better playing style especially at the low stake level? Ultimately we want to make ReplayPoker fun and competitive for everyone, otherwise players will move on elsewhere. For example, do we just need to attract more players at all levels?
I said this a year ago regarding this topic when I was a lot smarter. "I don’t like this all-in practice and don’t play that way. My solution has been to play accordingly – be patient and go all-in with a good hand or wait until they get the chip stack they want to start playing in a more standard manner.

Perhaps delay their return longer. However, that would penalize players that play properly and bust out to an all-in player. The Mania tables seem to satisfy many of the lotto players in Low. At these tables whether you are Low, Medium, or High big stack rules. I would request that the upper stakes players return to a table would be equivalent to a Low Stake player waiting for more chips
