Title:Why is online poker reduced to Bingo?6 out of 6 readers found this review helpful

There was a time when poker used to be fair online. It gave birth to players like Tom Dwan, Patrick Anotnius etc.
However near about the poker Black Friday, things started changing drastically. A number of problems started cropping up for the poker rooms.

The pros were able to crush the recreational players easily, poker had become a game of chess where skilled players would decimate the lower skill players, the implication would be that less skilled players will quit, just like no one plays a chess grand master betting real money.
Solution: Increase the chance element in online poker, make the recreation players win and give them hot streaks that eliminates poker as a skill and makes it a gamble, this is easy to do via computers and by big data analysis and analysis of players it is easy to tag them, and make the recreational players win more than their fare share and the pros lose more than their fare share.
There is heavy outflow of cash from the online poker rooms by the pros. Problem, the pros would consistently take out cash from the poker rooms, and the fish or recreational players would not deposit any money. With no players the poker rooms would not generate any rake and then the poker rooms would lose major business. Solution:The solution to this problem was done so that there would be games all time around, delay cashouts, reduce poker to bingo, introduce tilt in the game so people will keep on depositing, this raises rake and thus benefit of the poker rooms.
Falling Revenues of poker rooms. Most players learn that online poker is rigged and then quit playing and there are fewer and fewer games. Solution: To combat this the poker rooms would use bots which are intelligent and favored, earlier the favoring techniques which were used for new players, the same favoring would be done for these bots and these bots would start clearing millions of dollars annually. This ensured the fair share of the parties that the owners of the poker rooms would have. It would add to their bottom line.
The list is endless. write to me to know moreā€¦

Title:Great site bad rewards if any 2 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
I enjoy the site a lot, hands down best software on the market, easy players and easy to profit daily, navigation, explanation , its all there. No site comes close to pokerstars. However I'm trying to understand how the changes actually influence recreational players . As far as I see theres actually next to zero , theres weekly freerole star rewards which is actually peanuts and it should only pay top 100 places instead of paying according to the number of players,the challenges only reflect gambling games like unprofitable spin n go's, they seriously need to get rid of that - its seriously killed cash and zoom game traffic drastically , theres some Power up 3 max, won't even play one of those.

Lets be clear cut, for recreational purposes, poker represents the dream, the dream is not going to happen with power up, spin n go's and star points, it is imperative that pokerstars implements rake back ASAP or I can only see the worst happening to the site. From when the site first started till now my rating has gone from 10/10 to 6/10. Im highly disappointed in general. The rake increase is actually not benefiting professional grinders or recreational players, I do not see what is so special about recreational players . Why would you want to keep players that play up to 10 hours a week happy over grinders? This makes no sense what so ever, and Daniel Negreanu is simply pathetic for implying what he thought is best for players, I have no respect for Daniel as a person, a player or a pokerstars rep.
