Roby's Poker School Diary


Sick of PSO donks

By: Wodanson @ 15:39 (EST) / 255 / Comment ( 0 )

 Have only placed twice in the pso tournies this month.. loosing to guys that call, or go all in with hands that shouldn't even be played... call it variance if you want... but variance doesn't justify this happening regularly. I am beginning to think that online poker is a scam... Bad enough that bad hands win more often than they should, but I've also tried cashing out some of my winnings recently, and before the check even arrived, PokerStars  sent me an email informing me the check wasn't any good due to the bank closing.. Poker was fun before everyone became donks, and before I realized I can't even collect my winnings. I do believe I will start supporting those in favor of banning online poker...  Pretty sad when I've been a poker player for more than 20 years.

3 Hours After I wrote this, I get an email.. "Following our recent communication, we regret to inform you that the bank account from which the check below was issued has been closed. In order to make the funds available to you without delay, the amount of this cashout has been re-credited to your PokerStars account with an additional 10% bonus as a goodwill gesture for any inconvenience this may cause you"

I've cashed the original back out, and I'm sure things will be fine. Have to give PokerStars credit for handling that situation, but pso is still donk heaven :P
