Got this email:

We told you we had some exciting news coming, and here it is…We’re merging our players into the GGPOKER community, and the best news is that you’re going to benefit!

On the 27th of January your player account, history, account balance and Fish Buffet loyalty level will all move with you over to GGPOKER. All you’ll need to do is download the new GGPOKER software when prompted, and get back to the poker action on the tables.

To make things even sweeter, GGPOKER will be offering you a brand new 1st time deposit bonus, available to both current depositing players and our recreational players. In addition they have all the current promotions available on BreakoutPoker, plus more! Get ready to enjoy an expanded tournament selection plus ongoing special offers.

So what’s next? Keep an eye in your inbox for a welcome email from GGPOKER in the next few days. It will confirm the merger plans, and the actions you will need to take to keep playing. In the interim, please continue to enjoy the exciting poker action at BreakoutPoker, including the new BLADE tournament series. We appreciate your support!

Warm regards

Carl Johansson

Yes, I receive the same email, but I wanted more...some ticket´s gift to make the duel for the room lost... Big Smile But nothing, for now, keep waiting. The good news for the regular players of BreakOutPoker is that GGPoker may be tracked by Poker Tracker 4, and I think that for Holdem Manager 2 too. I don´t know GGPoker, who are played there?

I just checked my email box for new messages and found one message from Breakout Poker. It seems I am also eligible to receive a brand new first time deposit bonus. I have not downloaded the new GGPOKER software yet.
Good luck to all mobsters playing there!

----------
I really don't like their software and playing field. I am not going to play there in my natural life.

Well we knoew the breakout poker but cant say i have heard of the ggpoker.
If you can play there and can benefit from a nice deposit bonus, why not Smile
But with this move they should be offering something more than a first deposit bonus,
like bonus cash, or free tickets for tournaments.
That would have been a better choice for the players.

I personally not hear many news about ggpoker, and also breakout poker nit very much, maybe they are small poker rooms and it is situations to them that not have many players and now think to merge is good thing to keep some business

Yes, the field and the avatars, chat, pictures, etc...was too children looking. And the players there abuse of it. But might be that the soft has some changes because that is a merge. Perhaps, the new site has the software of the unknow GGPoker. I only know about it because the PT4 has a possibility of making adjustments for this room
Confused

Maybe this will give their network some boost overall. I mean I like the different kind of rooms and offerings and all of that but when I see some low traffic network where they cannot generate much of anything exciting for a while it makes me think twice before signing up for the next similar effort...

Joining a network or merging sites can be helpful for players indeed,
It is better to have as many players as you can in a site.
Not only to be able and play your favorite game at any time, but also
giving you a big variety of options.
But of course after a point, the number of players a site has, sint good when it comes
to players rewards, and im talking about promotions, with freebies and stuff.
Just look at poker stars Blink

So - not a smooth transition as yet:

An open letter to GGPoker players

Dear <player>,


An open letter to GGPoker players.

GGPoker recently upgraded its Cashier and other back-office systems, but encountered a number of problems along the way that impacted many players’ experiences negatively.

Some players found it hard to log in, others experienced issues when verifying their identity and yet others ran into problems using the new Cashier.

GGPoker apologizes unreservedly for the frustration any of you felt when trying to get onto the tables, and deeply regret that the fixes have been slow in coming.

We have been undergoing Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks since January 29, but don’t want to use this fact as an excuse; the issues simply should not have occurred.

We greatly appreciate the understanding shown by many players during the past week, and want to assure you to that the entire GGPoker team continues to work hard at completing the fixes and improvements necessary for you to get the most out of your GGPoker experience.

You will hear more from us soon.
Sincerely,
Paul Burke
Head of Marketing, GGPoker

So these attacks keep happening here and there.
It is a big problem for the sites, since it is creating lots of problems to all.
And while the time goes, seeing that the attacks continue, it means, that this will always be
a problem. Once they find a solution for it, the attackers must be finding a new way....

You dont need to play 600$ that be too easy for 100$,its a classic bonus offer you need to make 600$ in rake to realise 100$ bonus and it will be relise in 10$ parts for every 60$ in rake you make.
So nothing special with these offer they give something like this non stop for deposit bonus like new player bonus or redeposit bonus on these site.

Yes, I received the same bonus and, as ivanjkp said, you have to make $600 of rake. It means that, if you play tournaments of $ 1, 10 ($ 1 to prizes and $ 0,10 to rake) you need to play around 6000 tournaments in that buy-in to make enough rake...you need to have a good chair! Big Smile And you play Pot Limit Omaha or other format?

Yes, the bonus is good business to who is playing a big volume as his natural way of playing, not for the rest of poor mortals like us Big Smile Perhaps, the new site has the software of the unknow GGPoker. I only know about it because the PT4 has a possibility of making adjustments for this room, but I heard that they don´t allow the trackers Sad

There are more and more rooms that are not allowing trackers.
The number increases.
There are also sites, that even if you wanted to use one you couldnt,
since there are no player details, when you are sitting on the table.
A couple also feature random seating, once you buy in Smile
