  1. Okay, I have completed the team challenge. I earned the ruby chest on the afternoon of the 6th day. I feel the game has tightened up, because I see top players loosing more chips. The very top player looks to have lost about 30 billion chips, but is working his way back up. So, the ruby level is attainable. I think I am a better than average player, but there are a lot of very good players out there at the tables that are better than me. I am up about 13 million chips from last week. I received about 10 million chips from opening the chests. I usually get about 50 million from the
  2. I have been asking people at the tables, what they think of this change. The people that will talk to me that either say that they THINK they like this change or that they do not know. I personally do not know. I have to play within the new system to gain an opinion. I do not know if I am not going to get an ultraspin or not, each week. I can earn 15,000 pts a week in 4.5 days. I am thinking that I can earn 21,000 points in 7 days. That means, the Ruby Chest is outside of my reach. Then again, the Sapphire Chest was outside of my reach, until I stepped up my game. I have reached the
  3. LOL -- there was no ultra spin for this 2019 Spring Calendar. There is for the 5th Anniversary Calendar.
  4. Thank you for bringing back the Ultraspin prize for logging in. Also, thank you for the 4 days lee way, though I plan to log in every day. I love playing Governor of Poker. Thanks again
  5. This last spring calendar event was very disappointing. I received bronze tickets almost daily. The message on the calendar screen was collect more chests daily to grow your reward. Well, I received another bronze chest on the last day of the calendar event. I did not miss a single day. So, what is "grow your reward" all about?
  6. Reading your post, I do not understand why you are here. I learned how to play poker by watching people play at the bay area poker rooms in the 1970s. One of the players there was TJ Cloutier whose name appears on one of the PC poker programs.
  7. I own movies six of the movies on DVD: 1,2,3,6,9,10. I have seen six of the movies: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. I have started 9 and 10 many times, but cannot get through the beginning of the movies. Something about the movies just does not capture my interest - boring? Poker/21 Movies that I own on DVD and have seen are Molly's Game, High Roller: The Stu Unger Story, The Gambler (2014), and Shade (2003). I think that Molly's Game should be in the top 10 list. It has a screen play written by Aaron Sorkin and stars Jessica Chastain. I have not seen a movie with either of those two names that
  8. It would be nice to be able just to watch the players with 15 to 17 Billion play poker. I thought that would be instructive, until I started seeing that one of the players in the top 3 is on a team with 39 players with less than 2 million chips. And, this team has ranked in the team standing 1 through 5th place a number of times. Something is going on... I can see where people would not like other people to see what they are doing to place high in the team standings, if they are manipulating the game to get these trophies. What is good is that I can befriend these people, if they acc
  9. I think that more thought should go into the mechanics of the animation of the hats. One of the new hats, when the owner wins, it looks like the dog is trying to lick its butt. Also the bird hats, I have observed birds for decades. When the hat owner wins, it looks like the bird is enjoying an orgasm as it completes mating. Although, this might be what the animator wanted, because for some it is an orgasmic experience to win. But these new dog hats are gross. I am waiting to be able to purchase a cat hat.
  10. Okay guys, the best thing to do is to take a picture of the screen and post it hear that shows the inconsistency. When in doubt, snap a picture. That is what I do when trouble happens at the table. Make sure to take a picture after hitting the icon that shows the last hand card result. That is plenty of time to do that, because you can do it up to when the next hand completes. Matter of fact, post the picture here for this problem. Good Luck!
  11. When I am in a team competition for chests, I do not care about money. I am trying to get 10,000 points for myself and add to the total to get to the 8th chest for the team. So, I will go all in to get the maximum 87 points. I drop about 10 million in these team chest competitions. I only get it back if I get an UltraSpin with a Diamond 8th chest. I average 30 million chips from an Ultraspin, so I am up 20 million. For you guys that are not on a team, that is your choice to play at the table during a team challenge. Just understand what is going on and why players like me will invariabl
  12. I played the "Play 40 games" calendar day today. I ended up with a "Silver Ticket" at its completion. It was more grueling trying to win 20 hands while trying to get team points, than playing 40 games not during a team competition. The other calendar challenges seemed to reward you with larger prizes if you had to win large number of games, rather than just play so many games.
  13. i hope I am posting to the right place. I was wondering if you could add a feature where you could tell you the opponents IP address when you look at their profile. The reason I ask for this is that I have been playing the Royal Poker Table in Vegas. There were two players at the table, one was named "Something" Sam and the other Sam. They were raising the pots each hand. One of them would drop out after betting up the pot, but it caused me to call to stay in when I had a good hand. Then I started looking at them. They both had the same hat and bling and they both had about the same lev
  14. Can someone tell me why when I completed the 2nd day calendar challenge, I and others only received a bronze ticket? This seems to be a slap in the face. I had to win 20 poker games to see the prize, a bronze ticket that gave me 15,000 dollars.
  15. I hope the new daily and weekly quests do not mean that the calendar daily challenges will go away. I really like these since you guys did the World Cup Calendar. My Team is FC Bayern and that calendar made all the difference for members of my team.
  16. The added feature of gifting everyone at once and accepting gifts from everyone at once, really helped in getting people to give. It made it much faster for me to give. Now, I spend more time making spread sheets to figure out who is active by tracking money and hearts for players. This game gets easier and easier to use. The only thing is that the tables get harder and harder to win hands as the players get better. Royal Poker, the players did not know what they were doing, so I was able to win points. Now, I get cleaned out one out of 4 times I go all in. Thank you for making this a g
  17. I recently sent individual messages of Christmas Greetings and Happy New Year to all 198 of my poker buddies. Is there someway to streamline this? It took me close to a half hour to do this, and what I was doing was pasting the text into the message area. I did customize some of the message, because some of the people I am very friendly with and have text with them. For those people, I could post the general message and follow up with customized comments. I just want to know if there is an easier way and if not, can this become a feature of the buddy chat system. Of course there should b
  18. The problem was self-limiting. The people could not survive without the handouts, were not willing to spend cash on chips and have stopped playing. Since they are off of my team and I unfriended them, I have no idea if they restarted playing. I am curious. What kind of moderation can be done in the new messaging system. I get messages while playing at the tables and could see where this could be a distraction. In the case above, the people were using both private and team message boards to beg for chips. I really enjoy GOP3. I log in every single day of the week, month and yea
  19. Thank you so much for this reply and solving our problem. The chat suggestions, though, are good to have and I like the ability to use them.
  20. I like the ability to play in Private Rooms -- BUT what happened to our team is that two players on our team used the private rooms to collect money from other players. This was okay at first, but then they became pests and started spamming requests for money to all of team in a few minutes. I received 35 requests for money within a few minutes through the game messages area. We lost several team members because of this. One of them lost all of his money, 1.3 Billion chips on purpose in 3 hours, because he got so disgusted by the spammed requests interrupting his play. The begger carried
  21. Have you looked at the game play of the top leader board people? I am friends with some of them and one of them is on my team. They are playing multiple tables. They are awesome. One of them on my team is playing up to 4 tables at the same time and winning and three of them are different types of tables. I am in awe. I wish I could do that, but two tables of the same type is my limit. If they are of different types, I get confused and lose badly. So, I do not think that they are cheating. Also, another one of them is a friend who had 1.5 billion in chips. She had a bad string of loss
  22. Greetings Stefan, THANK YOU!!! Yes, all of them that I have reported are now gone. You guys are great.
  23. Greetings. The bottom banner that pops up once the hand ends or you fold is now randomly appearing. It pops up in the middle of the game and I am still in the game. I cannot see the option below them. It is not just happening to me. There are other players that this is happening to. I tried hitting esc key and it ejects me from the table. I tried to click on the words and they appear and the banner with word choices do not clear. I also tried clicking all over the screen and the poker table to no avail. I can click on all the choices and they show up on the screen and I cannot call or
  24. I have been seeing more and more inappropriate photos for player photos. One is a picture of a topless woman laughing at a nude male, though you can only see his thigh. Another that gets me upset is a guy that looks like Lee Ermey shouting and flipping the bird at the camera. Another is two nude guys separated by a rubber dildo. Another is a guy that appears nude from his crouch up with what looks like his junk (male sex organ) hanging out for all to admire. I have to admit that I am friends with the topless woman... The only photo that really, really gets me upset is the Lee Ermey
  25. What would help is if there was the photo that people are using to help identify them. I have two "Dave" friends and two "Einhoezen" friends and a couple of pairs of friends with the same name and I have no idea which one is talking to me or giving me chips. A picture would help. I enjoy this game and hope it continues to thrive.
