It's a very good initiative from PartyPoker. With people at home all day, things could lead to addiction and gambling and poker sites prefer people to play for long time without getting out of control. Addicts are bad for reputation and for the bottom line of the site.
I always thought that they should insist on playing boundries that can't be changed in the middle of playing but rather a week later, so you can't play more than you intended.

Very nice advice from PartyPoker , to new and old players , to take care of their gambling behavior , so as to keep on having fun .
They should know their limits , meaning having a ight Bankroll Management , know how much they can afford to lose , how much they should invest on every level or stake , in casino or poker , depending on their budget , their betting bankroll , stay in these limits and not break them due to tilt or other reasons as then game will ceize to be fun , instead they'll be irritated , angry , and dissapointed because f their lack of control .
There are upswings , but also there are downswings . Good bankroll management ensures players remain in control of their betting and money totally spent Smile

well on one side that care about players and how many they will spend when they are all time at home,but on other hand they think it was great that so many people are at home,because they will play more and more and lot of rake will come to them!so dont think that they care so much about players,but ok!

Hahahaha... yeah it sounds a bit hypocritic! It is as if they were saying: 'Hey, we know that you are not having a good time and you understand that thanks to that we are filling ourselves with gold. But do not hate us, with our pockets full, we have my charitable ideas!' The y are so nice and cool people! Why they think that this is necessary?

Maragatero, I don't think they are hypocritic. I met once a marketing manager of one of the big gambling structures that went to school with me 20 years earlier.
He said that gambling addicts are bad for business. If you can spend 100$ a month they prefer you do it over a few years, and grow it as you can afford more than spend 2,000$ at one night and never come back again.
Addicts also makes regulations much worse and cost the sites more money than they make in the long run.

Control over the betting on poker , casino , everywhere , is essential , so as for the fun to keep on going . This is sth great poker rooms , including PartyPoker , advice to players , not only nowadays , but for many years now . But ofcourse , nowadays , with all these new players coming to have fun or play seriously for big money on the online pokerrooms , due to corona virus isolation , there is bigger need to protect these new players , from reckless betting behavior , without BRM , without a plan on the spendings and the stakes they will play , either on casino games , or , ofcourse , on poker cash games or , even worse due to greater variance , to tournaments Smile

roeish3 my friend, this is not a personal question. All the army, including the more cruel of them, have soldiers that were good people, who goes to the church, pay his taxes, etc. But his business is the menace of death. So, here is not about the discussing if play all the day of your live $100 is less addict than a man who spend $2000 in only one night, This is about the intention of having good press with a bussiness that lives with the money of the others in special situation. I didn´t saw much freerolls promotion to give some gift to the isolation people...

I agree with you, Maragatero - this is not about morality, pure business.
My point is that the "healthy betting" is not just a publicity stunt. This is business.
Healthy betting is more profitable in the long run, and I heard it from top management of gambling site, with explanations.
Since in this case best practice for the business correlate with the better social results, I'm all for this move and will salute PartyPoker for it, both as a business consultant and as a poker player that at times had trouble guarding his bankroll.

Dear friend, I understand your concern but I don´t agree with the policy of the poker´s room. If they they worried really about the healthy game and it was looking like to them a good business, they would propose concrete limits in the tables of game and would do a conscientious analysis of the situations of life of every player. Lately we saw all the measurements that they added to validate the accounts that want to do a retirement. If they wanted they might do something more effective than a declaration

This choice is very good for many players because they lose money and can get very angry. In my country there is a word: The health above all. Poker rooms should follow this example and they can introduce some links with tips on relaxation and concentration.

They have conline live chat with the support team , or they can send emails to them , if they face gambling addiction problems , if they cannot control their spending money , if they cannot kkep on with a bankroll management plan, if they suffer from anxiety or they're angry due to many uncontrolable money losses and loss of the fun of the game Smile They can help them find sollutions to plasy better , spend in a better way and learn responsible gaming , to protect themselves , and keep on having fun playing casino or poker Smile

you can find help on lot of ways,they promote pages where you can ask somebody,you can call,you can close your account for few months on that page,but you can again on some other!but as I said in first post,they care about you,but they want more and more money!we always have news how much some site grow,how much they earned in last year and so on!so I dont believe much to them or any other poker or casino site!ofcourse they want your money!

In the future we will see massage on the temples or on the shoulders for professional players directly at the game tables. I think it's a very good idea and in this way things will look different but in the good sense of the word. Health is important.

I wonder how many calls these guys receive. I never would have called them, no matter how bad I felt my situation is. But since there is a demand for hot lines for all sorts of behaviors, this addiction probably has it's hot line callers as well.
Still, not sure how effective this is. First, they would probably have to be fluent English speakers and secondly it would be a words conversation. Call for help? Advise? Are there people on the other side of the call professionals in helping people in distress?
I also think that some kind of regulation on bankroll spending should be mandatory for all players.

Sometimes more players need help and frustrations must learn to lose. It is not easy for some gamblers because tension builds up during the game and a help can be very beneficial. There is nothing abnormal and it is needed for many losers.

Yes , It is very important and nice that they offer the option to set some de[osit or money spent limits , so as to protect you from bad gambling and many losses . Also , most important , like in many other poker rooms or sportsbetting sites or online casinos , you can ask to temporary close your account for some period of time , self exclusion for some months from all games or just from specific , , if you feel you need to take a break from gambling .

Ofcourse you have to be sure that you want to do this for some weeks or months , then act accordingly . I did that in the past with bwin.gr casino , but after some days I regret it , told them I want to get back , but they forced me exchange with them back and forth many emails , also write them that I play responsibly , I don't have gambling addiction problems , and some other things . Omg , personally I will never ask for exclusion again , at least not from the support team of a site , lol Smile I think you can do it yourself manually from the lobby .

Antonis, I'm actually happy to see how it turned out to you. It's good to see people actually listened to you on the other side and also that it was hard for you to get your game back.
I think this is the right way to go. If it was easy to get your game back than all people with addictions could get playing again when they were in the middle of a fall down with their gambling hunger.
It needs to be hard to get your money back to be effective. That way is you get it back it's not because you're in the middle of an attack but rather doing it from your own free will.

You can say that the "healthy betting" is just a saying Smile
You can track yourself and stay away from over excessive bets, in all formats,
or games, but most of the players are getting addicted to it at the end.
So if you are playing big bets, or smaller ones equaling a big, it is the same
thing, if you know what i mean.
No matter what the bet size is, you have to be able to control yourself,
and cut off your habbits before it is too late.

if you want to stop gambling and not to play poker,casino or to bet,then its better that you remove internet from home and on the phone,because there are so many sites that you can play,its not just that you self exclude on one or two sites!you can again make deposit on other sites and this isnt solution!
