MISSING MORE THAN 1 BB!!!!
Well my experience proved my gut feeling was right! I know I,m not missing a fortune here, but 1,5BB is big enough for a pokerplayer!
here are the results:
I played 7 tables:
BOUGHT $ / CASHOUT $
Holdem NL 0.05/0.1 2.4 /2.41
Holdem NL 0.05/0.1 2.3 /2.1
Holdem NL 0.02/0.04 1.24 /1.24
Holdem NL 0.05/0.1 2 /2.45
Holdem NL 0.02/0.04 1 /1.85
Holdem NL 0.05/0.1 2 /2.32
Holdem NL 0.05/0.1 2 /3.1
(*The results are from Mansions' own table history feature, and are the same as my data made by hand on a piece of paper)
TOTAL $ 12.94 $ 15.47 $
(8.99€) (10.75€) =difference (WON)1,76€
When I start a table I pay 1,39€ for a minimum buy in of 2$, the rate is then: 1,4388
or another way:
my winnings were of 2,53$ / 1,4388 =1,758€ (or 1,76, if they are rounding correctly)
BUT MY BALANCE IN € INCREASED FOR ONLY 1,65!!
I'm not a math expert, have I made a mistake???? please prove me wrong!
This could be the answer for all those whoes statistics on elefant are showing higher winnings than the balance on this platform. Just think about it, 1,5 blinds on 7 tables and 200 hands in 20 minutes disapeared (that is 0,75BB/100 hands, or in pokertracker 1,5BB/100 hands, THAT IS A LOT IF U ASK ME!!!)
I DO NOT WANT TO START A DISSCUSION ABOUT GENERAL MANSION BASHING... just please write your comments and solutions on this problem!
P.S. just something to think about :
I played 20.000 hands NL 10 on mansion till today, my bankroll is just above 110€.
if 0.15 $ goes missing every 100 hands, that is:
20000/100=200
200*0.15$=30$ that is almost 1/3 of my BR!!!!!!!!!!
(do you still think it is an hones currency exchange deviance???)
(maybe the sample is too small and it happens every 500 hands... still on 20.000 hands that is 6$.... not very little either + ????the rake....??? no wonder it is so hard to be a winning player on lower limits)
bytheway I'm stiil not sure all my calculations above are correct, IT IS JUST A THEORY, I'm not good at math, so PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG!!! I must have made some mistakes!
I have made another check to prove may theory:
according to the Elephant I've lost 4,76$ in just over 700 hands today, that is correct  the same amount is stated in table history feature of mansion poker:
I have started the day with: 117,07€ on my BR, now I have 113,48€,
117,07113,48 =3.59 €
the rate we pay the dollars to enter the table is:1,4388
(I always paid 1,39€ for 2$) so they are promissing to cash u out by the same rate!)
4,76$ would then be 3,30€ my BR should be then 113,77€
 already missing 0,29€, wich is more than 4 BB, that rounds my theory to 1 BB missing every 200 hands, which is 10$ in 20.000 hands! on BR of 150$ thats high enough!
ONE PAYS LESS FOR EXCHANGE FEEs WHEN CASHING OUT!!!!right????
(so in my poor math oppinion it is better to have the account in $, if you count out the instable exchange rates, but that would just be too complicaded for me to test out).... heheh, i think i just answered my question!
the next question would be then: can one change the account currency on mansion?????????
