All IN All The Time - BlackChipPoker
Watch out while playing at Black Chip Poker, or maybe this is a good thing for your bankroll.
Black Chip gives points out based on the amount of money in a pot.
There's also the crush promo going on, whatever that is. I believe these
promotions are causing players to unnecessarily up the pot amount, but
this example is ludicrous:
Player x begins with $25 at .25 NLHE 6 man table.
The other 5 players begin raising $0.50 or re raising to maybe one dollar.
Player x goes all in. First time does not seem strange. Player x looses first $25 and reloads.
Next hand player sees a $0..50 raise and goes all in again, and looses again.
This happens over and over. Player x has now lost over $350 and keeps going
all in. Player x may win 1 or 2, but then goes all in with say $47.50 and will loose that. The lucky opponents at this table are over the $250 dollar mark
and rising. One is greater than $350.
My concern is this is not poker. Black Chip should not reward this behavior.
I don't care if this guy is a gazillionaire, this type of play, hand after hand, should not be allowed. I have seen this all in stuff before on Black Chip and its not uncommon. Not to the extent of player X, but bad enough for me to seriously consider avoid playing at this Poker Site
You get a decent hand, raise some NORMAL amount, then the whole table will go all in after one player decides to do so. You think your hand is pretty good...never believe that...and go all in too only to loose everything. That happened to me once, but never again. Black Chip poker should be renamed:
All In All The Time
I realize you play at your own risk at any no limit table but aren't there player rules of some type that discourages this type of continuous play (by the way, I didn't loose any $$, stumbled on player X searching for a table).
what are your thoughts about this?
