    As you know I'm not a casinoplayer but a pokerplayer. I'm not lucky enough to play and win in casinogames :)

    So my question is, if it is usefull for pokerplayers to stay member here? I had a lot of fun in the pokergames with you guys, but it's awfully quiet in the pokersection this year :(

    Hey Masida i am still here and Mick is still here that i'm sure of, but i agree the Poker club has been closed for buisness so far this year, the only games we have had i think was 2 or 3 and they were at non-usa rooms so i couldn't even join those ones, that being said there were many times that Mike and crew got games together and we couldn't even field 10 players so they must of gotten frustrated and so shelved them for awhile, but hopefully they will read this and see if there is some renewed interest,.......i know i would be in if it was at all p[ossible :nanaparty:

    Thanks you two for posting.

    Ya, we had alot going for the poker players.

    We really need to get the poker club going again.

    As you all know, me a dummy at poker, but would be
    willing to learn and post some promo's.

    Let me talk with Mike and Marina over the weekend.

    We are really hoping to get this going again.

    Now with Mick on board, the field is wide open.

    Thanks for starting this Topic Masida.
    We have 3 problems.

    * We need really players in order to get Freerolls again.
    * Indeed what Pete says is we made indeed 3 or 4 freerolls 2/3 months ago and we had no more then 10 players and we even had to play with 3 extra staff members to run it.
    * The poker rooms saying now to me then..sorry mike you dont bring me players we do not sponsor you any freerolls.
    * The poker rooms asking me now to deposit money in my player account for freerolls.
    I dont mind about paying the freerolls but we need to see then some results.
    So i need think........what can we do?
    Any suggestions?!
    Post it!!

    Its a really tough situation with poker here. Part of the problem is that our loyal poker playing members wouldn't mind making an ocassional deposit from time to time to support games here, but most of them already have accounts with a little bit of funds in them and no need to deposit and also won't show up as a "new player" because they already have accounts.

    The other problem is with poker, when players get comfortable playing at a room and it becomes their "favorite" then its unlikely that they will just pick up and leave their favorite room to make one of our supporting poker rooms their favorite, therefore, hardly ever playing at our supporting poker rooms.

    Then on the other side, everyone comes running for a freeroll from all over the net, but never do most of them have any intentions of ever depositing to show support for the games. Then we have some wonderful members here that are mainly casino players here, but are learning to play a little poker, and don't mind playing the freerolls but don't want to deposit to play buyin games, because they just don't play poker alot, and probably feel they aren't good enough or know how to play the game good enough to deposit(which is ok, i understand why they would feel this way).


    I know you guys will come up with something i have an idea, but not sure how great it will go over, and it would really take some supporting by many real money players.

    Maybe a league with cash prizes for the top league standing players.

    Dmoney brings it to the point.
    Yes guys, I am very sorry but we just do not have enough support for poker here.

    Umm, Dmoney... You know we had that all already, even a special League forum here,
    which I had to delete then.

    Well i can see Dmoneys thoughts as too 100% the problems here, take me for example i have right now 20 poker rooms downloaded onto my pc and all of them i have deposited into, the thing is i deposit the minimum and that lasts me for like a month or more and i am talking $10 at most of them , like Big Bet that i signed up through here and made my initial deposit they then gave me $5 free and i now have around $90 sitting there but because of the fact that i have 19 others on my pc and am a member of several poker forum teams therefore i only play at Big Bet around once a week or so.So i am a perfect example of how Mike and Marinas work they do even with me depositing can't really help them then when only 6 or 7 sign up to the games they do get us the rooms are like yea right um we will pass on your forum... so i have always loved BP and will always continue to call it home because i love casino gambling so you can't get rid of me but i can see why poker won't work here but if it is available i will be here to represent!!!!

    hello everybody, i'm new here but have a question.
    if people join the freerolls but don't deposit, does this affect BP?
