re: Poker & DoylesRoom problems. Am i alone?
are you trying to receive a check? If so try to do ACH and if that doesn't work than yeah you probably have a serious problem, I think you might be able to get ACH to work, I'd be surprised if you couldn't.
As far as the network, the network is pretty good to me. If you liked the play on doyle'sroom, I would say when you get your money out of there transfer it to one of the following sites:
pokertime (don't deposit here if you plan on playing low stakes omaha alot from 10 max all the way up to 200 max)
All of those sites run on the same network and allow US players also. I think pokertime may have similar US regulations like doylesroom, so I would try crazy poker or poker host first plus crazy poker is running a 1k max match bonus and pokerhost is running a 2k max match bonus right now. I think you shouldnt have problems on those two sites.
As far as the navigation of the site, maybe its because I've been playing on the microgaming network/prima poker for the majority of my poker life, but the site is VERY easy to navigate to me. I may be biased in this, but I find the layout simple, and the thing is with every game room on the network the layout of the software is exactly the same aside from site specific game room themes and colors. So once you get one game room down you'll be relatively an expert at navigating any of the game rooms. I had to switch to doyles room for the moment myself, haven't tried to cash out yet, but I'm figuring I won't have a problem because I've made numerous withdrawals over the past month alone on pokertime (same network) through ACH with fees of $12 a pop, receiving my money in a range of 4-6 times consistently each time, I found it convenient.
I did meet someone recently that is NY and he said he cashed out , than had a problem actually depositing again, which is like the reverse of what you said, but he plays specifically on doyles room and he was able to cash out. I think his deposit problem had to do with a debit card he was trying to use that probably had a gaming restriction on it which is easy to work around. I'm figuring its definitely a state thing, so I would say be persistent you'll make it happen.
From a players perspective I'd definitely say stay on the network if you can, especially if you are a cash game hold em or omaha player, because the network is filled with fish and donkeys. At the same time there are some REAL GOOD PLAYERS on this network that don't play on any other poker rooms, and there are a few notable ones that play on other networks "tookurcookie" probably the most notable that plays on other sites. If you specialize in tournaments the tourneys are good, obviously not as good as say a pokerstars
, but still good. So if you can get your money out of doyles room definitley consider some of the rooms I mentioned above and live chat with them before you sign up, let them know your problems. From a cash game standpoint its a great site, I don't think there is any compatible poker tracker for the network yet so you won't have to worry about players tracking you and getting that advantage either.
good luck with the cash out, give us some updates. Any other questions feel free to hit me up on aim or pm me
