      My pleasure, fully.
      Now I am here on the forum anyway, I would like to post something short. Titan has since 4 days exclusive Super Turbo Double Up SnGs, with by far the lowest fees on the iPoker network.

      We are talking about quite big buy ins: $50, 100, 200 and 300. See here:

      Fee rates comparison for these kind of tournaments:
      Pokerstars: 3.5-4%
      Titan poker: 4%
      Fulltilt: 5-8%
      All other iPoker card rooms: 6-9%

      We hope you are served well with this.

      cheers,
      Roger

      LOL, this is one of the funniest things I've read for a long time.

      I am assuming you are referring to the "Low fee ST DU" games. Okay - lower fees than other ipoker rooms, I agree. (standard ipoker $50 games are 6% rake).

      What 4 handed superturbo double up sngs do pokerstars have? None
      What 4 handed superturbo double up sngs do full tilt have? None

      So, to compare the fees like that is just to make yourselves look good. Here's an interesting question - how many of these ST double ups are actually going to run? These games really should have even lower rake than 4%.

      In these ST games, the structure is ridiculous (as all super turbos are on ipoker). The variance is insane - even for a double up game. Pokerstars did have 4% rake when they did have double up games. 4% rake for turbo games, not super turbos. IF you were referring to this as a comparison, this is wrong again. Turbo rake should be higher than super turbo rake, naturally.

      If we look at how a good poker room does things (read pokerstars) - they took on board feedback from players and lowered the rake for turbo double ups to 4%. When is the last time ipoker actually changed something (for the better) based on their users' feedback?

      I have suggested that ipoker make the Hyper turbo HUSNGs paddypoker have network wide and nothing was done...

      Hyper turbo husng rake should be something like 2% - network standard
      Hyper turbo double up rake should be the same - make these games look profitable to players by lowering rake and you might get traffic. More traffic long term, more games, more rake long term.

      We hope you are served well with this.


      Yeah, was a funny read.

      The rake for micro SNGs on ipoker is the main reason why I have not deposited on there yet. It is also the main reason why I also delayed my bankroll building project and concentrated on Pokerstrategy freerolls. Everything there is geared towards generating rake as fast as humanely possible. Charging 20% fee for SNGs and making non-turbo SNGs - turbo. Their SNG section also needs drastically streamlining. Far too many gimmicky SNGs competing for a small pool of players. Utter greedy idiots!! Try streamlining your SNGs and offer a decent blind structure, along with fair buy-in fees. Then you might see more players flocking to your network.

      $5.50 and over SNGs are okay on ipoker. But they don't make it easy for anyone wanting to grind up $50 deposit into a more workable bankroll. In fact, they almost make it impossible. It's why I have decided to learn cash game on ipoker, away from my beloved SNGs.

      I too feel like iPoker shoot themselves in the foot with the super high rake. Yes you get more rake per game but you just kill your traffic. I understand that this is probably out of Titan's control, but Titan is of huge influence given it's the biggest iPoker skin so I hope you can drive some change based on player feedback.

      Titan is a really good skin in terms of service/rakeback and it's a shame you are held back by the lack of improvements to the iPoker software/rake fees.

      Yes, I would also like to make my voice heard on this. For example, with lower buyin turbo double or nothing tournaments, you have to also pay a 20% rake. You'd have to win over 60% of the DONs to break even; that's pretty ridiculous. With the super turbos you have to win over 55% to break even, this is still pretty hard (I am getting about 1.5% ROI but most regulars I check are losing money due to rake).

      I think that the rake for these tournaments should be no more than 8% for super turbos and 12% for non super turbos. Anything more just kills a majority of people's chances to grind a bankroll.

      They are just a bunch of greedy so and so's. The only micro SNGs with fair buy-in fees are the heads-up SNGs with 5% rake, and the 6-max knockout turbos at 8% I believe.

      Hey guys,

      I have divided this part out of the other thread as it is a dedicated thread for those seeking assistance with problems at Titan Poker.

      Feel free to continue your discussion here.

      Have a great weekend,
      Gary
