I didn't know how to set it up, I know what it means and what is it's main goal and where the servers are located, that's enough, I'm young, lots of things to learn for me. Anyway that doesn't have anything to do with intelligence, it was just lack of knowledge which I now posess.

 

And you didn't answer my question...obviously you're not gonna reveal how badly you've been investing into poker right? That's enough to make a picture of you.

So you are asking if i win or lose right... Well, I wouldn't be playing over 10 years if I was losing.

I have had losing years and winning years, just like most who have been in the game this long.

You seem hesitant in answering that question tho so I suppose most of your poker years were the losing years right? You can admit it if it's the case, I won't ridicule you

I did answer. Are you incapable of understanding?

Some years you win some you lose....ask any professional player and they will tell you the same. 

I have a solid 7BB per 100 hands win rate at the micro stakes online. You don't measure wins by $$ amount.

So once again...did you overall lose more money in poker or gained more money in poker after all these years? If you win some and you lose some you probably aren't a very good player either. Anyway I don't even care so why bother really. Maybe just make it less obvious that you're not good at poker. Idk you just seem like that kinda guy that things he knows a lot about poker but in reality has been playing poker wrong all the time but hey, that's just my opinion...there's no wrong or correct way of playing poker as long as you feel good about it, but also you don't really seem to feel good about it. I know it's hard to let it get to you but you've been gambling and lost more than won, hence you play more of a luck oriented poker or you're just a bad player. I'm sorry to inform you but please try to stay away from casinos and online poker, it will ruin your life if you continue to play this way. I actually want to help you so please take my advice and rather stick to some good old low stakes with friends/ no stakes skill oriented poker, you'll feel better if you win by skill and not luck, trust me. Poker is actually adictive and hazard if you take it the way you take it and that's always bad. Again don't take it as if I wanna ridicule you or something, I just wanna help

WTF is the point of ridiculing how someone plays poker? This thread is about poker in online which is meant to be fun and enjoyable. What does it matter to you if someone has won or lost money in real poker?

A lot of you in this thread are getting WAYYYY too deep into this.


They have added online poker, which has been requested for a long time. I can't believe people are getting mad over a 5% rake, or that you can't go "all-in" - Just forget about it my dudes. Last night I sat down with my $25 dollar buy-in and when I left the table an hour later I had $90. Do you really think I care if 5% of that disappears? Do you think I care if I lose every single hand and my $25 buy in? No, I don't care. Because they added POKER, and it is working just fine.

 

If you can't afford the 5% rake or even to lose $25 then I suggest looking up a guide for making money in the game, because you are doing it wrong. And why does it matter that you can't go all-in? You would just end up crying to Rockstar that you blew all your money and lost it on poker? It is better how it is, with the max bet IMO. And even with the max bet you can still make decent money if everyone goes to max bet with you.

 

Just enjoy the goddamn poker !

Who's getting mad over 5% rakes? 

The discussion is if the 5% rake should be an excuse to not let us play a tournament style poker. 

Noone's getting butthurt that 5% is raked afaict

There is no intent to ridicule, I'm just trying to help him...gambling addiction is a serious thing and this might actually be his case. Anyway you've got a point that this should not be discussed here, but if I'm right smokewoods started this whole discussion and also started this whole beef, then I defended myself and it came to this sh*tfest. Anyway you should read through it to get my point

I think it's reasonable to assume that poker tournaments are coming. It's not like Rockstar to not allow people to piss away their money quickly, and a high-stakes buy-in for a poker tournament would help lubricate that process.

Well thought out post, and I enjoy tournament play more myself. SNG's are fine for a casual, no pressure daily poker fix, but the play or don't play won't last long on a TT. You need to position yourself early on and that's where your skill as a player is put to the test.

 

Like you said, you can't just sit back and do nothing. At some point you're going to have play, otherwise the blinds alone will eat you up. Say you're down to the final two and have 50k left after posting a 16k SB and get dealt a off suit J 5. Do you pay 16k to see the flop? Or do you fold knowing that you're paying the 32k BB with a chance to get crappier cards next turn?

 

What I play has a 25k buy in. For a 6 person table, there's a top 3 payout of 87,500,31,250,12,500 with a 12.5% house rake. As much as I'd like to see this in RDO I doubt it will ever happen. Which is no big deal since I'm not going on to play poker in the first place.

Thank you so much and I agree entirely; I'd very much like to see a similar format within RDO as well, but if it doesn't happen, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it - it's a somewhat decent time passer, but I don't play just or even primarily for the poker either. It was something I had wanted them to add, but unless it involves real money or is structured in a way to emulate a true poker experience, it's just not going to grab my undivided attention.

 

If you don't mind me asking; where else do you play poker for 25K? I used to play Prominence Poker on PS4; at first, I did mostly ranked tournaments until I reached Diamond level every season and then I started played 100K, 200K, 500K, and sometimes 1M tournaments with friends and members of certain PSN communities, but I quit at the beginning of the year - the game has been abandoned by the developers and it's overrun with too much cheating and drama for my liking.

I play The Four Kings Casino, it's free in the PSN store. I was playing on it on PC, but haven't in awhile. Although I might switch back, it's more civilized on PC, in VIP is anyway.

Ah, yes, I have this on PS4, but I couldn't really get into it for some reason. At least not enough to make VIP, where I'm sure things are better. I dunno though; it's been a very long time since I've even tried, so maybe I'll try again one day.

Those 5k tables are tough, they might as well be free tables the people play.

The $5 max bet limit per hand per person has to go.

No limit poker should be no limit.

No limit will NEVER come to RDO

Too easily exploited, too easy for people to freely give their money away to others. Not to mention trolls who would bet thousands before the flop even came out every single time.

 

You want no limit, then go and play any proper  dedicated poker game on the many websites or casinos in the world. Throw your money at them.

 

But this is RED DEAD, and this is just a little poker minigame that has been added. It's just a tiny thing amidst the hunting, missions, races and numerous other things that can be done in Red Dead.

Disagree, in fact the $5 limit is why people go all in pre-flop. Look if the BB is .25 and I 3 bet it to $1 if someone 4 bets - they HAVE to go all in.

It destroys the game.

Besides why would it matter if I want to give my cash away? It was earned and has the same buying power in my hand or yours....

I think the both of u are right. No Limit will not happen (25 $ Limit). Good players will milk the heck out of bad players and earn to much money to fast. But the 5 $ all in Limit has to be removed, because going all in has to be a risk. It´s not that risiky with only 5 $, witch is a reason why allot of players go all in beforde the flop.

 

IMO, the Limit of 25 $ per player is OK, but with the option to go all in with 25 $.

When I say no limit should be no limit, I am NOT referring to the buy-in. I am fine with a $25 max buy-in.

It's the "betting" limits that I am referring to.

 

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

I get that you don't want us dumping credits to each other, but a $20 pot limit, really???

That would be nice, but I'd be happy if they just let us play while in party chat, I would play poker a lot more expect for the fact that, I can't stay in party chat with friends. Seems like a pointless feature considering no one chats anyway.

Most likely to prevent people from cheating (telling each other what cards you have). Then again, it's not like you can play with your friends anyway, at least I've never been able to. It always splits us up. So idk, just a guess.

so people can't tell each other their cards in game chat? Or in Facebook chat or any other online chat app? And then there's the same function when you host a private, friends only game? IMO so pointless

They can only control what's in their game, and yeah pointless since there's other ways to communicate. They should've at least allowed it for private games though, that's stupid.

I played a private game with a group of friends last night and they had a party chat going while we played. They had the party chat set up before we sat down to play the game, but there were six of us and we were all in the same persistent posse together. The posse leader started the poker game and it automatically seated everyone at the table with the option to buy in.

 

So, I dunno, maybe it works if you're all in the same posse together and it's set up this way. We didn't encounter any issues.

 Really? Well i gotta try that again, I'm sure the boys where all in my persistent posse when I launch it?  Hmmmm.... very interesting,  we just kept getting the warning, need to have game chat active - we tried to start the game and switch back to party chat but it just ended the poker game 😞
