Site with a bankroll limiter
I can't believe none of the cardrooms have come up with the idea of what I call a "bankroll limiter".
Maybe it wouldn't be so profitable for some sites, although I wonder how many people go on tilt, blow their bankroll and then change site and they lose the player?
My idea is for an online poker site
to add a "bankroll limiter" to their software, where as you can set yourself bankroll rules. Then software will then not allow you to play in a game that does not meet the requirements you stated in your bankroll. Perhaps then you can have the option of specifying how long after requesting to change the settings that it will kick in. I.E 2hr delay, 24hr delay etc etc.
Kind of like:
x Do not buy in for a game xx times the total amount of my account
x Do not buy in for a game where 50 times the big blind is xx% of my account balance etc etc
You get the picture. Maybe somebody has done this? Leaving aside the issue of discipline and managing your own bankroll, I know plenty of players who are prone to tilt would be signing up like a shot to a site like this. Never go on super-tilt again!
I know there are filters, but that is very different. They have self exclusion I suppose - but that is not quite as slick. I think it's people going on tilt and moving up to stupid limits with their entire bankrolls which is what hurts some people. I've been there before and am getting better, but I know loads of people who can't take it and just go on mega tilt all the time (Hi Geraint!).
What do you lot think? I am amazed this hasn't been done.
