$100+$20 poker tournaments at casinos are not profitable in the long run for the players. It's really $95(prize pool)+$25(casino). 21% of the buy-in money is taken from the prize pool. Since you paid $120 to play, but only $95 is part of the prize pool, you have to win $25 to get back to even. So, you need a 26% return to win $0. And so does everyone else in the tournament. Obviously, that's not possible! -- 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐲 𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐥𝐞 𝐓𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐓𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 (𝐒𝐓𝐓𝐬), 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐧𝐨 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐬, 𝐢𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐠𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬. Advantages to STT's are many: 𝘕𝘰 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘴, 𝘯𝘰 𝘵𝘢𝘹𝘦𝘴, 𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘷𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦, 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘺 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘥𝘢𝘺, 𝘩𝘪𝘨𝘩 𝘙𝘖𝘐. $10, $20, $30, $50, $100, $200, $500, $1000+ etc. Any buy-in. Any structure. Any poker variation. You can play multiple tournaments per day. You get to play 9-handed up to heads up. Single table tournaments are awesome! -- Play them, have fun, keep it friendly or competitive, perhaps even profit! STT's are also a great way to introduce new players to poker. Spread this message to all poker players worldwide. Good luck at the tables!

And send a rescue team to North Korea for Tom Chambers.

This site has hundreds of Russian bots playing on it. That's what happens when there are no screen names.

May 19, 2019 | 8:20 p.m.

Yeah! The people want SinKarma and some more Uri Peleg!!!

All facts, all the time, mofo.

RIO Poker with screen names is a good poker site worth playing on. Without screen names, it is unplayable. It is that simple. You want customers, you need to add screen names, all limits and games.

Zoom Poker is the perfect format that doesnt allow predatory behavior. Anonymous poker is a step way too far.

Why didnt you just make a normal poker site like all the others and make the rake 50% less? You could have crushed PokerStars!!!

April 17, 2019 | 8:09 a.m.

If people try RIO Poker, they'll soon decide they like "playing the player" and return to sites with screen names.

Poker players worldwide do not want anonymous poker, not even recreational players.

Zynga poker is for play money though, so no, it doesnt work for real money.

Hey Phil Galfond..

The poker world wanted you to create an online poker site that would replace PokerStars as the #1 online poker site. Instead, you've given us anonymous Zynga Poker. This is definitely not what poker players world-wide want. But, you can still make changes and improvements. We expect futures efforts to be alot better.

Its 100% crybaby Coreys fault ACR removed HU tables. You should of just stopped playing KidoPham once you realized hes 100X better than you.

You can keep splash the pots, but make them always between 1/8th and 2 times the big blind.
Def need screen names, a million %.

Feb. 21, 2019 | 10:05 a.m.

You should have tables with screen names and tables that are anonymous so players have a choice.

Feb. 20, 2019 | 4:44 p.m.

Large splash the pots is just flipping to win your own money back. It's -EV.

Spins N Go's are super fun. So is roulette and craps.

Feb. 20, 2019 | 4:11 p.m.

Having no idea what your opponents ranges and frequencies are in any spot is not real poker.

You need to take 50,000 of RakeStars customers. Better yet take them all. Go with 2.5% of the pot up to $3.

Feb. 19, 2019 | 2:20 p.m.

Anonymous tables is a travesty. Skill has been stripped from the game.

Feb. 19, 2019 | 1:27 p.m.

Changes that need to be made:
1. Add screen names.
2. Make the rake 3% of the pot up to $3. 2% of the pot on HU games.
3. Eliminate splash the pot.

I have 100% of Zoom hands on PokerStars for the last 3 years. Saulo is a break-even fraud.
