This is a discussion on Best Micro Stakes Poker Room? within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Play Omaha 90% of the time and am trying to find a decent poker room. Got banned from GG Poker, so played on 888 for
Why would they ban you for winning too much? It makes no difference to them.
They didn't ban me for winning to much, they banned another player.
And companies don't want players winning because it makes it less fun for casual gamblers/degens and they might play less as a result.
Not to mention, I have sat at tables and watched the whole table leave, I have chased people around tables, and they quit. They don't like playing me, because they know they will lose, and they don't have the patience to play properly. Probably also don't know how to play properly.
I have sat down at tables and watched like 6 tables empty because nobody wants to play me.
As for that incidence on GG Poker, he did not get banned for winning. He got banned for signing up to another skin after getting banned from one skin of the network already. Why he originally got banned has not been revealed, as far as I know. When this story first came out, I kind of defended GG Poker and their actions. Since then I have however changed my mind. I think, TOS allowing a poker site to keep peoples money for reasons like this are unfair.
Yes he broke the TOS, but really this should not allow GG Poker to do anything more than kick him out again. When DNEG was asked about this indidence he said, that their must be some consequence for people signing up again after being banned. But why? Its basically GG Pokers own fault, that they allowed him to sign up again in his own name and using the same email adress as in his old account. Its not like, he even tried to hide his identity in any way.
With that being said he did break the TOS, and he was hardly doing so without knowing it or knowing, what risk he was taking. So he is not a totally innocent victim either. And for me personally this would not keep me from playing on GG Poker. We can find something to be mad at almost any poker site about. I would think twice before keeping big money tugged away on GG Poker though, since this is in my opinion way less safe than having big money sitting on PokerStars.
