Default Absolute Changes

I wonder if Absolute will lose many customers to the recent changes of the rake requirements for reload payouts?? I know of a couple of dudes who aren't playing there anymore because of it but was curious if there will be any significant impact??

judging by that there was no change in traffic at Party Poker and Pokerrrom network after they downgraded their rake and/or bonus structures, I would say no.

like you said, it only affects "a couple of dudes".

IN the past month at peak time there were about 10 - 15 tables at .5/1 full....tonight there were 4. Seemed to be a few more 1/2 full than usual as I guess the whores (me included) realized the bonus is impossible to clear at .5/1

Well hopefully all the tags will leave my .50/1 and 1/2 6max games and go play 2/4 [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I can hope.
Ill be working towards 2/4 faster now.

I just opened my first Internet account 2 weeks ago, and it was at Absolute. I'm half way thru clearing my $190 bonus and they changed the min raked hand criteria (for bonus clearing) from $.25 to $.50. This seems a bit extreme and slightly unethical. When I signed up, I agreed to their bonus clearing requirements. As far as I'm concerned, that's a contract and shouldn't be altered mid-stream.

I've been playing .50/1.00 9max tables. With the tightness of these tables (2-3 to a flop), it'll take a long time to clear the rest of my bonus.

On the plus side, I've improved my tight-game play tremendously.

check the T&C again, i would not be surprised if there was a line that said we r allowed to alter this at anytime. which would mean they r not breaking the terms of the contract when it changed.

They probably have every right to do it, but it's still kinda shady, and a poor service to the customer. They shouldn't offer a promotion, knowing they are going to change the rules, and then save themselves with the fine pringt. I am in the same boat on this deal, so i am just going to cut free of absolute and go to a different site. I emailed them, and they show little interest in helping me.

its padded my bank roll by ck raising those tight weak bonus chasing whores

this is the best 5 days i have had on AP playing 1/2 limit
if i could get over my NL crack addiction i would be running very well.

on a lighter note i donot have rakeback or didnt do a reload bonus, and i cant bring my self to play anywhere else right now making 15$ an hour playing 2hrs a day on 2 tables

They lost me. But I wasn't a profitable customer for them anyway.

Although I did start an awful lot of tables for them. And play HU and 3 handed to keep them going.
