Did anyone stay up all night for that Valentines day heads up shoot out in carbon poker. If so did you get itm ? I played or more like waited from 3 pm to 11 pm for rds to finish at 11 pm i shut it down went to bed. Woke up at 5am it was still running i finished at 100 lol
I played it till like 11pm and then just gave up on it. When you have to wait 3 hours because of the sit-outs in the tournament, meaning waiting for the blinds to get high enough to ko sit-outs in a heads-up tournament. It was nothing but a big joke.
I played the first 2 rounds of that tournament; in Europe was like 5 a.m. at the end of the second round, or maybe didn't play for real, since I had sitouts as oppenents. But... I was asleep for a few minutes at the start of the 3rd round and when I wake up, I was done, my "luck" didn't bring me another sitout, but a live player.
Remarks: very poor management of the tournament, the sit outs issue.
The timing: this sort of tournament would have been better placed at the end of the week.
The surprise: I was expecting that the Carbon's Poker support forum would be any help; in fact, that forum is hijacked by some moderator (Evil666, and I can add, "mean and rude", my blog explains it) and his yesmen, that sorted out the problem: it was because of the romanian poker players (pretty common idea, right? and very handy). So my first post there was welcomed with an instant ban. Poker room's support directed me to the same forum. Way to go Carbon Poker!
Conclusion: HU tournaments - no, thank you!
PS: is it still playing ?
PS2: Carbon Poker claimed that they'll add extra money to the prize pool and extra accolades. Anyone knows something or received anything?
That joke turney was the biggest wasting of time in my life ever 1st of all i waited more than hour jus for turney start, then i won my game and became 3k, but here n Bulgaria was 3-4 am i thought its finally started when the waiting started again, and then i jus said "F OFF" and closed the room and got sum sleep the shit was that there was again a ton of id1ots who registered and SITOUT, and if its HU game, the madness happend, so thats why all stpd networks need to update like Microgaming - after 1st level all sitouts get the fk out!!! This is the best decision ever made by a network, i really wonder why the rest still sleeping Also they made mistake with regstart time, they should open registration 1 hr before, then all those freeroll huntung sitout id1ots wouldnt be registered and wastin all our time....sumtimes i really wonder what kind of "managers" work at those roomsThey made more stpd decisions than donks @ the tables
Entraction does things like Microgamming too, as BullDawg said above: inactive players are flushed out, regardless of the blind level. Good thing for a tournament player that the field is decimated after the first round (Microgamming), bad thing for those blinds hunters, that are chiping up from sitouts.
There was a mistake in the valentine's day heads up freeroll because i think the reason is there was no ante or it was after very long. ppl were just folding back at each other to stay as long as they could i waited for like an hour for my turn but just kept waiting finally i took a nap when i woke up i saw im eliminated because u hav to play when ur turn comes which could take hrs. It went on for like 10 hrs!! but one good thing was the winners were rewarded for their patience with an additional $50. only top 5 were paid it wud suck to have come 6th in this tourney.
I stayed up only to finish bubble in 6th never will i play another carbon forum tournament. Lost to an idiot after 18hrs of play who had a straight draw went all in against my set. Although there was very weak competition (those who played anyway.)Its not worthe playing for the money they put up when no 1 is even there, Very boring games there. Takes the thrill out of the game.
I didn't play in this one but in my experience playing those preroll with thougsands of pleope is an experience to test your stamina, not your poker playing hability. At some point you just get so tired of playing that you play stupid and end up giving up a whole lot of chips. So even if you did play, you would have been better off sleeping.
