It appears that 5/10 and above are unchanged. This only seems to effect the smaller limits.

To reiterate what others have said so well, just in case you come back to this thread.

1) Pokerroom software is not very good (I'm being polite)

2) Pokerroom bonuses are not particularly generous. I passed on this last one because of point 1 and point 2 combined.

3) There are other alternatives to Pokerroom. Lots of them.

Didn't you have a post awhile back that outlined all the major sites rake structures.

Anychance you could repost/update that.

Those are way old 2 years or so.
My last day with The Gaming Club Poker Room was today, I resigned to work more on my poker game, and you can rest assured that I will be vocal in fighting for the players rights.

I have no info on any PRIMA rake increase, but if they did they would go against my recomendation.

I created the HIGHVOLUME promotion so that players could get up to at least 80% rake back, hell maybe I'll sign up for it myself lol.

(I actually would, but am taking a vacation now.)

The point is the principle and the overall picture, If you were living in a country where all the people without a last name starting with the same letter as yours had to pay double taxes would you think it was ok?

Besides, if they get away with something like this, then those limits will be next, trust me.

1. True
2. Also True
3. True if and only if you use a PC. Mac users are screwed. However, I'm still not convinced that this change will make a dramatic difference for most players, except (as I mentioned elsewhere) micro-limit players, who are shut out of bonuses. They say they'll fix that, so we'll see. I don't see a need for any knee-jerking, though.

First thought: "Just a bunch of people whining as usual" [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

After looking at it: Holy crap! What a scam! Pokerroom is unreal. It is a shame I am part way to clearing a bonus and may just quit. What a scam!

Pokerroom, you have to be kidding.

Some examples from $2/4:

$0.80 rake on a $9 pot (no rake at Party)

$2 on $26 pot ($1 at Party)

Of course they conviently go from $.80 to $2 to screw you on bonus clearing as well.

I'm withdrawing all my money from your site.

Example:
pot $23 -> rake $0.8
pot $24 -> rake $2.0

How can you say shiiiit like that with a straight face, you punk?
