WINNING PLAYERS,THE SAME WAY SPORTS BETTING SITES,BAN OR RESTRICT WINNING PUNTERS ?

I think they will,if they havnt started already,i can see the day when poker players who are withdrawing money from a site to often ,get banned from that site.

had written a big post on the reason why,took me about 20 mins and it never posted,so not doing that again.

if anyone gives a reason why this wont happen,i will respond with why I think it will.

so anyone have any thoughts on the matter ?

Why on earth would they do that Dougie???

Ok my reason. Those players are winning money from other players. Why would the site give a fuck who wins?

rich and bill.

I used to think the same,sites don't give a fuck who is winning or losing as they getting the rake,but that's not the case.
in recent years sites have started to make payouts flatter so more players get some money back.
also there has been an increase in bounty hunter mtts on a lot of sites but that's not the reason sites are promoting them.its to spread the money.

will continue,dont want to put it all on one reply incase it disappears again

sites these days consider all the money on their site to be their money well.
players add to that well and the sites withdraws from it.as the well gerts empty ,other players keep filling it up.
example ….a mtt is played and the winner gets 10k,theres a good chance that the winner would withdraw most of it say 9k ,and leave a bit in to play with.
instead of the winner getting 10k the site would much prefer for 1000 to get 10...why...theres not much chance of them withdrawing they will keep on playing,so in the end ,the site will get the lot,the whole 10k

to be continued

bookies ban winning bettors ...why..because they don't need them,theres plenty of bettors out there.so winners have their account closed or restricted,because the affect the sites bottom line.
in poker its the same,if players are winning and withdrawing,its taking money away from the sites,so why would sites allow that,when theres plenty of other poker players who don't withdraw, they just keep playing away until the site gets 100% of all deposits in the end.
a winning player who withdraws money affects a poker sites bottom line.

and the player who is winning and withdrawing,is taking money off the other players who don't win and withdraw which means the site cant get it in rake.

Dougie, doesn't matter how many posts you make.

I gave my reasons. Sites are getting constant amounts of money in. Why would they ban those that win when they get the same amount from them as they do from those that lose??? Perhaps more in fact.

Like banning Tiger Woods at his best.

sites are not making constant amounts of money rich,the winning players are withdrawing and the losing players are leaving,so its a constant battle for sites to keep bringing in new players,thats the reason they just want the money to keep circulating and not to be withdrawn.

the betting industry its players taking money from other players as well [that's why they called bookmakers} so you wouldn't think it mattered to them who was winning and who was losing,but it does,thats why the get rid of winners and keep the rest who are happy just to have a bet win or lose.

We would grab him by the balls and threaten to cut them off if he leaves after 2 hands.

They tweak the algorithm to let the shit players win. At least, that is how it feels right now :hide:

The bookies are paying winning punters out of their own funds. Poker is a zero sum game to the platform unless they offer unrealistic guarantees. They introduced 15 - 20% payouts a few years back so that more players stay in the game.

It is in the interest of site yup Dougie to spread the winnings around to

1,keep the cash longer
2.to keep the "losers" playing hence more rake.

A high volume grinder will still win but will fuk off elsewhere if its more profitable trouble nowadays is there is not much competition.
