Higherhighs, along with any other player, is free to send in screenshots of chat that they feel violates the rules posted. The decisions regarding whether this will result in a mute is then made by SwC management.

As we do not currently have a chat moderator present there have been a number of players that have assisted with this, and with relaying player feedback. But as always we invite all players to directly give us that feedback or message if they choose.

If any player has made comments with the intention of representing themselves as a part of the SwC team we would ask you to email support with a screenshot because this is not true and would not be allowed.
7  Economy / Gambling / Re: ✅ SwC Poker ♣️ BITCOIN POKER ♣️ Hold'em✅ PLO✅ Mixed✅ MTT✅ ♣️ BBJ🌟 ♣️ BIG BTC🏆 on: September 04, 2020, 03:22:51 AM

But, what about HigherHighs? They do not speak for SWC?

 Also, at one point ETF had the same green text as HH.

No. We have attempted to make this as clear as possible. Higherhighs, nor any other player, represents or speaks for SwC. If they have given you that impression it was either a misinterpretation or a misrepresentation on their part. The only official messages from SwC will come from clearly identified SwC accounts.

There are a few players that have green chat text but it is not an indication of any official position or authority. There are also other players that chose a custom chat color when that option was available for a limited time. If they have not changed their color since that time it will remain. For this reason chat colors alone are not used as a method to signify anything. Official accounts will be clearly identified as such; for example, SwC_Support is an official account used by support in chat.

SWC just deleted this post twice but I will post it again as it is very concerning! If you delete it again I will post it again.

If you have issues with another player please email support. This is not the place to post personal issues or attacks regarding other players. Posts made solely for this purpose will be deleted.

Isn't ETF staff? They usually have green text and are always promoting tournaments and time left to register.

No. There are no staff members that are currently present in chat. When an official site representative is added they will be clearly marked as an employee and representative of SwC. Messages from any players in chat or made on any other venue are not official and they do not speak for SwC.

MBSOP LEADERBOARD ANNOUNCED

The formula used to calclulate points is:

Leaderboard Points = 10 x (√Field Size/√Finish) x (1+Log (Buy-In+0.25))

THURSDAY DOUBLES NOW RUNNING!

CURRENT THURSDAY DOUBLES BONUS



Play both A and B tournaments at the same time.

The player with the best combined finish in A and B will win the weekly bonus.

Win both A and B and you will also win the progressive bonus!


Well, I personally prefer R/A (and double rebuys) over re-entries, just because it creates more action early and higher price pools, but I admittedly never understood the reason why sites got rid of them. I believe the Omaha Mix specifically lends itself to that format since equities run closer than in NLHE, so more flips (and coolers) happen and therefore more opportunities to rebuy. If it was up to me, I would shorten the time you can late reg but extend the time you can rebuy, encouraging people to actually play the game instead of sniping.

I think it could create a pretty decent price pool (250k+).

We agree with the idea of extending the rebuy period past late registration for the same reason. Thank you for the suggestions about this tournament. The series schedule is limited and there are always events we would like to add that may not make the cut, but we will include this in the discussion as the schedule is being finalized.

As shown on the website, scheduled tournaments with a guaranteed prize pool will have a total entry fee of 6% or less. This has not changed.

This new one may have been mistakenly put up then.

Good on the withdrawals.

Suggestion for the next series: 5k Omaha Mix (or any NL mix) rebuy with an extended rebuy phase. Maybe an event with multiple day 1s - I forgot what they're called, Phase? Something like that. And 25ks, ofcourse.

Yes, this was the first day for that new tournament and the entry fee should have been 120.  Embarrassed  Players were pre-registered before the tournament could be updated so 100 chips for each entry has been added to the prize pool to be distributed to players according to their finish in the money. The tournament has been corrected for next week.

Would this be a rebuy/add-on tournament with the option to double rebuy? We have not yet run a 5k rebuy or one featuring a mixed game but would be open to the possibility if there is sufficient demand.

Hey, I think you guys forgot to announce that SWC changed the house rules and is no longer covering the transaction fee for withdrawals. Are there any other changes that players should know about?

I hear that you started raking rebuys and add-ons sometime in the last few weeks, too. I couldn't find any mention of that on the website, though. How much are rebuys and add-ons being raked now? When was the change made?




Withdrawals are free for players. SwC covers the transaction fee. Players receive the full amount of bitcoin requested. This has not changed.

There is also no limit to the number of free withdrawals a player may request.

Thank you for pointing this out so that this line can be removed.

Yes, rebuys and addons are charged an entry fee. As shown on the website, scheduled tournaments with a guaranteed prize pool will have a total entry fee of 6% or less. This has not changed.

You are correct that this should have been made more clear to explicitly include info about rebuys and addons.

This will be updated, and in the future we will make sure that everything is made clear and communicated to players via all channels.



So, can a "normal player" as you call him now decide who and who doesn't qualify for promotions? You really need to clear this up. He is still defrauding people daily on your site.

No. As mentioned many times higherhighs is not an SwC employee and is not in a position to decide anything regarding SwC. Their only role is as a player that has volunteered to help send in reports regarding chat rules and to forward suggestions from players. They have no authority that any other player does not possess.

All players are also welcome to send in reports, questions, feedback, ideas and suggestions via email, Twitter or here in this thread. Decisions regarding these are then made by SwC management. Many additions and adjustments have come as a result of suggestions and feedback given directly by players.

We are trying to make this as clear as possible. Any confusion about a user in chat having the authority to make these decisions is either a misinterpretation of what they said or a misrepresentation on their part. Official statements will come from official SwC accounts. If you have issues with another user please send an email to support.


ANNOUNCING THE MICRO
BITCOIN SERIES OF POKER!

I think you should make it really easy to figure out how the leader board works and what the prizes are.  Make sure the way you calculate points isn't stupid or there will be nonstop bitching about it. 

If you want to do something gimicky and interesting you could have 50% of the rake collected go towards the leaderboard prizes.

Also you really should address the rake increase thing before posting anymore big image promo stuff.  It looks like you're trying to bury the criticism which will only make things worse.  Increasing rake without announcing it is a big nono.  You could've announced twice the increase and gotten half the pushback really.  Poker players don't like to feel like someone is trying to pull one over on them.

You are right. The intention was for the rake adjustment to take place with an announcement to be posted shortly ahead of time.

The website was updated beforehand to correctly display the new rake schedule but the accompanying announcement was not posted at the correct time. This was an internal miscommunication and mistake that SwC acknowledges and apologizes for. Extra care will be taken to make sure everything is communicated clearly and on time in the future.

SwC has always been committed to being completely transparent with rake adjustments. The current rake schedule, along with comparisons to all past rake schedules, can always be found on the website at this address:


Some of the percentages have seen a small increase but the rake caps for most situations have also been lowered. As Bitcoin value increases we will continue to make adjustments necessary to lower caps to keep them in line.


The prizes for the MBSOP Leaderboard will be posted before the series begins.

The formula used to determine leaderboard points will be the same formula used during the BSOP:

Leaderboard Points= 10 x (√Field Size/√Finish) x (1+Log (Buy-In+0.25))

Daily updates of the leaderboard with current point totals will be posted here at the conclusion of each day's events.


The schedule for the next tournament series that includes larger mid and high stakes buy-ins is currently being finalized and will be posted here soon. Expect the kickoff date to be approximately 3-4 weeks from now.  There will be a tournament leaderboard for that series also.

If you have suggestions for events that you would like to see please let us know.

What was your favorite event from the BSOP that you want to see again? What do you feel was missing that you would like to see included?

ANNOUNCING THE MICRO
BITCOIN SERIES OF POKER!

SEP 4th - SEP 13th




The Micro Bitcoin Series of Poker will be held from September 4th thru September 13th and consists of 30 tournaments over the course of 10 days. Tournaments are spaced throughout the day to give players around the World the opportunity to play a tournament that fits in their schedule.

Similar to the BSOP there will also be a leaderboard with prizes for the top 10 finishers!

With a wide variety of games the MBSOP is a great opportunity to try out something new in a low stakes and fun environment!
15  Economy / Gambling / Re: ✅ SwC Poker ♣️ BITCOIN POKER ♣️ Hold'em✅ PLO✅ Mixed✅ MTT✅ ♣️ BBJ🌟 ♣️ BIG BTC🏆 on: August 31, 2020, 11:51:38 AM
UPDATED DAILY SCHEDULE



The daily tournament schedule is currently in the process of being updated with increased guarantees and the addition of some new tournaments that offer higher buy-in options.

These include a new 2k NLH with 40k GTD every day at 6pm ET, a 5k 8-Max NLH with 75k GTD every evening at 9pm ET, a 500 NLH with 30k GTD every evening at 10pm ET, and a late night 2k NLH with 30k GTD every night at 12am ET.

We will continue to roll out new tournaments throughout the upcoming week.


Personally, I believe the 25k should be an 8game (people aren't as familiar with baducey and badacey unfortunately), and if I were to choose a timeslot, it would be 6pm or 7pm ET (probably 6pm, as 7pm has the 10k NLHE 6max) on Saturday as to not collide with the Sunday tourneys.

Biased opinion here bc I look forward to badugi/uecy/acey rounds the most, but I feel like 11 game > 8 game for a nightly higher buyin tourney.  It's true more games = fewer people having experience with all of them, but if someone is willing to play triple draw but doesn't know how to play badugi games, they're probably willing to learn and jump in without much experience.

Thank you both for the feedback. We understand some players will have split preferences on the 8-Game/11-Game choice. The new 10k 11-Game on Sunday has been promising. We will continue to gather feedback with those players and see if there's a choice that is most popular.

Quote
Do a different mix each night during the week, Stud/Stud8/O8, Draw games, HORSE, 8 game and 11 game.

There is a newly added 5k mix every evening at 8:30pm ET that rotates games Monday - Saturday.

Monday: OE
Tuesday: 8-Game
Wednesday: Omaha Mix
Thursday: Lowball Mix
Friday: HORSE
Saturday: Big Bet Mix

If players have suggestions for additions or subtractions to the rotation please share them.

Are there any plans to change the BBJ to the old system again? I would love to see that!

There are no plans to change the Bad Beat Jackpot qualifier at this time. One option in the future might be to have a tiered system that lowers the qualifying hand requirements as the BBJ reaches certain levels. We welcome your ideas and feedback on what you'd like to see in the future. But for now and the foreseeable future it will remain as Aces Full of Kings beaten.


Not a biggie but it would be nice to see an update after the Thursday double plays out, announcing who won the best finish across both tournaments, even just the average needed to win it that week.

For anyone here who doesn't already participate we are starting our 4th Bitcointalk poker series - sponsored by SWC this Sunday. Information can be found here, no late reg and it's password protected.

Thank you, you are right. We will post an update here after the Thrusday Doubles with results on which player had the best finish and include the following week's progressive jackpot amount.

THURSDAY DOUBLES STARTING NOW!



Play both A and B tournaments at the same time.

The player with the best combined finish in A and B will win the weekly bonus.

Win both A and B and you will also win the progressive bonus!


Building on the relative success of the nightly mixed game tournaments and what I've talked about in my other post, I propose a "Mixed game week". Do a tournament in the 2-10k range every hour from 6pm ET to 3am ET, maybe a 25k on Sunday, that's 7 tournaments, just use the 7 you have daily now. Put some satties up aswell.

Make the NL variants rebuys (Big Bet and Omaha Mix) and tweak the structure for the FL games to have less play early but more play later on.

Watch all the mixed game players actually show up because there's not just that one bare tournament on the schedule.

Thank you for this and your other suggestions. The team agrees with the points that you made. The tournament schedule is currently being reworked and the information you posted is helpful and will be taken in to account.

If there were to be a 25k tournament added to the regular schedule do you have a suggestion for the best day/time and game varient that you would like to see?

We also love the idea of a mixed game week and will include that in discussions for a future promotion.

An updated daily schedule will be released and added to the lobby soon. Thank you to everyone that has been making suggestions. We welcome you to continue to post suggestions for tournaments that you'd like to see.

Fixed Limit rake has been adjusted today to lower the % and caps.

You can view the current rake table and compare it to previous rake tables on the website at https://swcpoker.eu/old-rake


BAD BEAT JACKPOT OVER 3.8 BTC!

This is the final time that we're going to ask that these personal back and forth arguments not take place in this thread.

We're here to listen to suggestions and feedback. We're here to work with players to get your ideas on what you'd like to see.

You are welcome to share constructive criticisms about something that you'd like to see change, but posts made only to troll and personal disputes between players do not belong here.


I mean, we all knew that the "Online" number in the top right is bogus, but this pretty much confirms it. Unless you believe that out of the 208 people online, 167 play an exclusive freeroll.

Not all players registered for the tournament were online when it ran. Those players that are sitting out therefore are not counted in the number shown as online in the lobby, because they are not online.



To all players:

What would you like to see added to the tournament schedule?

Is there a specific game or buyin level that you would like to play that isn't currently being offered?

A game that is there that you'd like to have more of?

A current game that you'd make an adjustment to?

The decision to make adjustments to the chat rules, and the ultimate enforcement of those rules, comes from SwC management. We want SwC to be a place that everyone can join to have some fun playing bitcoin poker.

Neither ownership nor management has changed.

We understand that not all players may agree with these adjustments, or may be unclear about them at first.

We welcome all suggestions, feedback and critiques from players about the rules and their enforcement as long as they are made in a respectful way.

Higherhighs, along with other players, have assisted in pointing out inappropriate chat and relaying suggestions during this period until there is an official SwC representative present. These players have no control or powers themselves other than to send in reports and suggestions. They are not employees and are not compensated in any way. They do not represent or speak officially for SwC. But we do appreciate their help as a connection between players and management. We also invite any other players with suggestions to send them to us directly.

If you are curious about actions taken with your account, feel they have been made in error, or have issues with another player we ask that you email support. We also ask that personal attacks and debates between players be kept out of this thread.

Issues regarding individual accounts or disputes between players will not be handled on a public forum.

Emails sent to support are not shared with anyone outside of the SwC team. Since the beginning SwC has always made player privacy a top priority. We do not ask for more information from players than is needed and have never shared information given with anyone.

If you observe a player or players that you would like the security team to look at please send in a report to support. Accusations shared in chat or a forum are not enough. You do not need to have proof to make a report. Simply include as much info as possible about the game and situation that you observed. The team will investigate from there.

We are aware that some players have reported slower response times from support and are working to improve that. If you have not received a reply after some time you may send us a PM with your screen name and we will check in to it.

We understand the issue regarding players without chat not being able to request action from the table. The team is working on a solution.

I'm sorry for the double post, but since you run some rather successful mixed game tournaments sometimes, I want to make a suggestion:

PokerStars has a structure in which blinds start much higher in comparison, but one orbit of games has the same blinds for each game (in this case the split games even have slightly higher blinds, see FLO8), here's an example:



Now, this tournament is rather turbo, but I think the general idea is great and worth adopting since, as it stands now, some games are way more impactful than others, just because of the way they're sorted.

I hope you like the idea and trial it sometimes. It is far more fair and, as a side effect, starting with higher effective blinds will facilitate more re-entries, which is good for SWC and the price pool!

Thank you. This is a good suggestion and will be forwarded to the team.

With all that drama here, I feel it's time to share that there are also great things happening. SwC Poker have been hosting exclusive Bitcointalk Poker Series for the last couple of months, sponsoring these and the 9 best players of our current series (#3) will play the Grand Finale tomorrow - posting this 1) to up the mood 2) to express the thanks of everyone participating in the series.

Thanks for having helped establishing a regular poker game among bitcointalk users - something like that didn't exist before.

Thank you for organizing these events and everyone here from Bitcointalk that has been taking part in them.
