We have made certain changes within our ring game tables to improve your overall gaming experience and to keep the tables dynamically exciting.
1. Removal of 0.20 / 0.40 20BB tables
0.20 / 0.40 has been removed because it was far less popular than our 0.10 / 0.20 games and 0.25 / 0.50 games. If you are fond of the 0.20 / 0.40 level, then we hope you consider trying the 0.25 / 0.50, or down to 0.10 / 0.20, where we are confident you will experience less wait time for opponents and fuller tables.
2. Removal of 0.80 / 1.60 20BB tables
0.80 / 1.60 has been removed because it was far less popular than our 0.50 / 1 games and our 1 / 2 games. If you liked the 0.80 / 1.60 level, then you could give 1 / 2, or down to 0.50 / 1 a try, in which we are positive that you will enjoy even more.
3. Removal of 4/8 20 BB tables
4 / 8 has been removed because it was less popular than our 2.50 / 5 games and our 5 / 10 games. If you had fun with the 4 / 8 level, try checking out 5 / 10, or down to 2.50 / 5, where you can find it both nicely challenging and exciting.
4. Removal of 10/20 9-max 20 BB tables
While we appreciate that some people prefer 9-max to 6-max, in general, most Global Poker ring game players prefer 6-max. If you are fond of our 9-max games, You should consider trying the 6-max game instead, where the wait time for opponents is much less and the tables are much fuller.
5. Removal of 20 BB restriction on 10 / 20 6-max, wherein, the buy-in range will become the ‘standard’ 40-100 BB range (you get to choose any number in that range)
We understand that some players prefer short-stack ring games, however, the larger stacks associated with the industry-standard buy-in option of 40 - 100 big blinds leads to greater strategic depth and more post-flop decisions.
6. Will you reinstate the 20 BB buy-in limit?
We removed the 20 BB tables to facilitate a deeper and more strategically interesting game, and we expect the change to be popular with most players.
Most importantly, please know that since this is an experience-improvement within our poker offering, we are always happy to hear your feedback while we continuously monitor the participation across our available ring games.
If you require any help, we would be more than happy to offer support here.
