    That would be nice but i honestly believe there would be zero ring games as folks would go right to the store, casino or buy bit coin etc. I also believe they have to make some equity on their vig during ring games etc. That is at least how it is on real money tourneys i have played on. To mention a couple, Poker Stars in the old days before they shut us down and Bovado. It was a good suggestion though ( "Y").

    This is gonna sound crazy, but if you guys have no interest in playing poker why not just skip the poker promos?

    Problem solved; never have to worry about rolling over poker points again.

    Thank me later

    Bosco, that is not what I was saying at all. Did you really read somewhere that I said I have no interest in playing poker ? I guess that would be crazy as we all put in so many hrs here. I actually enjoy playing in ring games and tourneys. My concern was that there are very few players out for this tourney so far........

    Here is an interesting idea, How about if we could use poker points in the SBR book with 5x rollover? I find it much easier to roll over 5x in sportsbooks than 3x in poker.

    I think we've all been feeling the pain of the "sbr loves the 80-20 underdogs" programming as of late.....

    KK almost always loses to any two cards on sbr....

    since I'm feeling good, I'm going to share what has come to be the best starting hand on sbr..... I have done lowly oaftard type research on several hundred thousand sbr hands, and undoubtedly 7 4 is the best starting hand in trnies (don't have the stats on it in the ring games).... often flops the 356 for the strt, almost always catches two pair, and often rivers a boat..... rarely lose with it....... (it did send me to the rail in the World Cup of Poker when I called a shove with it, only to run into pocket tens--so don't play it in The Cup)......

    Hi Gary, remember, SOMEBODY is going to have the points in the end anyway after they sit there and roll them!

    And whichever players that do end up getting Donk-lucky & win points after completing the 3X roll ARE going to go

    right to the store or casino or buy bit coin! So why even have a rollover to begin with? I don't get it!

    What is SBR getting out of it by making people sit at tables for hours trying to roll over points

    when the points are still going to be in SOMEBODYS account after the hours of rollover?


    So player A got lucky after 3 hours of roll & won all of player B and player C's points, what does SBR get out of that?

    Right. You have to get lucky and donk 10 times in the tourneys to win any points, AND THEN you have to try

    to get lucky and donk 100 more times while you are trying to roll the points over for hours! It is exhausting!

    My only question is WHY is there a 3X rollover on the points? Because it isn't like a sportsbook where

    they want you to rollover so you will lose your money/points to THEM and they will be gone!

    In this case, the points are just changing hands between SBR members. So somebody is going to get the

    points anyway! What is SBR gaining by making people sit there for hours rolling points? Am I missing something?

    Since somebody is going to end up with the points ANYWAY, then Why not just let the player who won them

    in the tourney keep them for himself with no roll?

    Where have all the flowers gone ! One of my all time favorite songs; both by The Kingston Trio and Peter Paul and Mary! I saw the Kingston Trio in concert a few times< last around 2010. I saw Peter Paul and Mary In concert about ten times back in the day. Nothing like playing poker to those tunes and a little Scotch and Soda, jigger of gin !!!! good stuff AD

    Just bored. Stupid to miss out on that great March series, I actually played in only 1 and was registered in 3 I think. Taking a break always reunites that fire. Glad they are upping the points though. 2 plus hours for 375 is not even worth pretending to care

    Don't forget what yahoonino is saying! "2+ hours for 375 points" is not really 375 points AT ALL!

    You then have to try to roll the 375 points over three times before you have ANY points! So then after 6 or 8

    hours of poker playing, you may have NO points to show for it! Some other player might have them!


    Once again, I don't even care, I just don't know why SBR is making it that way? What are they getting out of that?
