Why do people HATE ipoker  0   
I keep hearing about people hating ipoker, can i ask why people dislike them so much? and who do they prefer? Why is this? is this personal preferences or some other reason?

Can people please give their honest opinions or any links to articles would be greatly appreciated

Dont hate but far from my favourite site .......

Firstly most scheduled tourneys are rebuys .... i dont mind odd rebuy tourney but most on ipoker are rebuy
secondly most of sng are turbo ..... dont like turbo sng ... and i know you can get non turbo sng also but most people seem to play the turbo ones on this site
niggly things like not being able to resize window and not being able to pick favourite seat to sit at ... which is annoying when you have a few tables running

other than that its fine ......... favourite sites are Pokerstars ... sng and 45 seater mtt 10 minute blinds ..... much better also Bigbetpoker blinds are better and in thes two sites you can pick where you sit resize windows

anyway hope that helps a bit

Totally agree with everything you said. It's not that bad a network it's just really annoying.

Oh that and suckouts tend to happen very frequently... Sad

I'm still gonna go for the $50 gift deposit bonus on noble with BRM though... well worth it! Smile

i just play there now and then got a few $ at vc and titan,
don't like the rake they have at low sng 20 cents is too much for 1 $ sng Thumbs Down
don't like turbo sngs, i like normal ones.
don't like their rng, no-folders keep on hitting at river (maybe thats just a biased opinion) sites pretty full of fish tho.
and above all when you have better sites why care about ipoker

-Clientsoftware is average at best
-Only a few games other than hold'em
-Games are to nitty (may change do to the change in the rakeback system)
-Start to ban winning players

ban winning players, how does that work? what do they care if people win or lose, they get rake either way. you would think they would want ppl to win as people get more money they get higher stakes thus higher rake

IPoker is a network. And it looks like some skins do the work (get new players to deposit) while other makes the money (have players that do win in the long run)

Hi!!

Ipoker.. I only play on it for BRM. Bad soft, bad support, slow to withadrawl.. maybe the worst sites of poker.

- Ugly design
- Laggy lobby (really hard to find a game because refresh is to slow)
-No resizable tables (hard to multitable)
- Personnal experience : this lobby makes me fast go crazy, im each time directly badbeated (here it have been the case at the first sng i made on noble poker)...
- Structure : Really to fast...

Some pokerrooms already have them. But they keep laggy. In 1 or 2 months all rooms may be updated. The new tables look a lot like microgaming ones.

And even with the new rake system, that room keeps a crappy rocky field of VIP bonus prostitutes. So I keep hating them. Happy they are losing the 3rd place to Party.

non-resizeable tables, crazy number of short stackers and the overall software i dislike

I'll go with my problems with ipoker:
- the rakeback and point giving structure are at odds with me. I play mostly low limit full ring, so I'm only in about 20% of the hands...
- the minitable layout is crappy, Sometimes I don't know who is in the hand and who's not.
- this maybe something I didn't find in the config, but I like to set up the table so I always look like I am on the same seat.
- no mac software Sad

- The one thing I dislike most about network is the play is extremely slow, it seems like each player is given 1 hour to make a decision so the table play (avg hands/hr) takes forever
- tons of short stackers
- don't really care for the software
- don't care for the table resizing

What I do like is the reload bonuses they offer tho and the competition seems easy. Since there is a ton of short stackers, they don't know how to play a missed flop or what to do after the flop. Maybe it's just me, anyone else think so?

Aggree. Live games look like turbo compared to iPoker tables... Big Smile
60-70 hand/hour in SH tables is completely boring (and this is the top h/h you can get there). And sometimes you catch 2 or 3 nits on your table that use 90% of their time bank to fold pre-flop.

Never really used to mind ipoker too much, even though i hated the lobby & software... but now since they changed their rake system ipoker has dropped alot in my list of preferred poker rooms

starts when a table (table mini mode), the soft spot tables one next to the other across the screen.

I have an ahk script to put the stack and manually move the table that interests me.

But since that day when I put the tables one above the other, whenever there is action my table is moved automatically by the soft spot in his initial is enough tilt. Aww crap!
