CLOSED MIND SOCIETY !!
I am an inventor age 70 who is patent pending on an enhancement to holdem poker. Notice I did not say a new game. I am not reinventing the wheel. I can increase action 10-20% pre-flop and flop. This would have a poitive effect on rake plus reduce those nights where a player doesn't get any action on his quality starting hands. And the rules of play would remain verbatim on the sites and math would remain unchanged. Starting AA at 220-1, start with a pair and flop set 7.53-1 against, outs counted same, etc.
Even contacted same again when I realized that a side effect would greatly reduce subtle collusion, the most sucessful kind. Got same rresults. Ring around the rosie with customer support marketing, floor managers, product development, etc at all the on-line poker sites
till I get no reply or form letter thanking me for my suggestions??
Occassionally am told they do not want to limit table selection and it's impossible to prevent players using chat, skype. email etc to share information. Evidently they believe that those 2 components are enough to make subtle collusion profitable. All i wanted was an email from a decison maker or a chance to pitch my idea in a 2 minute phone call.
Got similar result from platform suppliers who wanted to sell me something like a poker room. LOL
I had a patent a few years back for a blackjack
enhancement and got replies from decison makers at digital table manufacturers, casino's etc. Unfortunately my game was only designed for low limits and they did not feel it was a big enough market. But they did listen!!!!
And I got referrals to these people from reporters mostly. So far not one reply from any on-line poker reporters or radio show hosts.
Seems like they know no enhancement to holdem is possible. Good thing draw poker players did not think that way. Or 5 card stud. Or 7 cad stud. Still amazed at seeing on Wizard of odds
Q&A and similar sites holdem players asking if it's harder to get a straight flush in 7 card or holdem. LOL
I am 500 miles frrom Vegas , have offered to pitch my game in person and if they think I am an idiot they can pitch me out in the street therrselves or have security do it.
Sure would at lease like the opportunity to be proven wrong.
The only reason I do not post full details is I don't think I can collect license fees from the Isle of Man. Hoping to license my idea
to deep pockets for protection.
