What happened to US micros?

ACR and BOL seemed to have abandoned 2nl and 5nl games. Aside from ignition, are there any other reliable sites that offer microstakes anymore?

They seemed to do it after the last batch of DDOS attacks. I wonder if eliminating those games made it easier to protect the servers.

Probably not a result of the attacks. Doesn't really matter whether the games are micro or large, they are all just games with chips and cards being dealt.

It seems to be a concerted effort to force players into higher stakes (thereby increasing the rake). For many players, however, the problem is that the variance at the higher stakes can decimate their bankrolls forcing them to either deposit or quit.

The business strategy is clear: if you aren’t willing to deposit (more?) money we really don’t want you.

dont forget their algorithm that dumps y our chips into the pockets of fish so they keep coming back ;)

888 has 1 and 10 cent games still. 1/2c tables, snap and cash. is that micro enough for ya? ;)

That is sarcasm, right? Because I am sure you are not one of those people who play bingo with your pocket Kings just to have some donkey call you with Nine-Six suited and catches a flush or straight.

Hi derpaderp

I suggest you post your question in this thread ACR official thread . I expect the rep should be able to update you in there.

Good luck

Think its like what happened to sngs- they quit promoting them and the sng economy collapsed.

i miss the days of crushing SNGs all day. now most of the time i spend waiting for SNGs to fill up. miss SNGs live, too.. damn casinos around here converted the entire thing to cash tables, minus when WPT comes around once or twice a year :(

It does seem like a shift in strategy amongst the companies now. I think they are focussing more on tournaments. I've personally received many emails indicating that there are new guarantees in my email from various sites.

Sng's do take more than usual to fill up now. I never really thought about that.

I just literally was not seeing the micro stakes cash games in my App, but I'm on a mac, so maybe that's what was different.
