Has anyone played Superior Poker yet?

OMG. Everyone plays everything. I'm not kidding. These guys call preflop raises with anything at any time. I lost KK to 62 os. Guy called the BB, then another raise by a guy and I raised it. He called the 2 bet and hit 2 pair on the turn. When I called him a fucking idiot he had no idea why I was telling him that.

Then, I just saw aces get cracked on a 3 bet preflop w/ 42h on the river flush.

Jesus, these Canadians are terrible.

Like I just told Jason, Superior is the same network as TigerGaming, the place I've been cleaning up at for 5 months now. What is everyone's name there so we don't screw each other? I'm grjr.

Man, I only lost about $10 or so last night, but I was enfuriated. Most of these shitty players are from Canada, eh?

I'm still amazed at this site/network. Fishier than Pacific Poker, even. I think the generation of POP points contributes to people staying in hands to help contribute to the rake. And who knows, they might even get lucky.

All that said, I do like the interface, especially the big bold cards.

I did screw up though and deposited the $500 max, which means I need 2000 POP for $100 I thought it was 4x Bonus, not 4x deposit!

I think the way to play this site is to value suited connectors significantly more. And with so many people staying in the flop and calling a raise, you actually have pot odds to chase a gutshot on the turn and possibly the river. Actually, with people so loose and so aggressive here, you probably have implied odds to chase gutshots almost all the time.

Yeah, lots of hosers there. TigerGaming has done a ton of advertising in Canada. Believe it or not most of the tables have tightened up in the past month or so.

As far as playing goes, don't be afraid to play suited connectors and 1-gaps from any position. And definately don't fold them to a raise. Those are the big pots you hope to win with those hands.

When you get AA, KK, QQ and the like don't be afraid to play them fast and hard. Be mentally prepared to lose with them more than you're used to but you will still make a lot of money with them longterm.

Tightened up? Does that mean at one point they had a feature on the software where you could check a box that said "Cap betting all rounds".?

I wanted to make a separate post about the POP points. Be careful when depositing and reloading since the playthrough requirements are usually times the deposit and not times the bonus (as Schorcho found out).

To aquire POP points you have to actually WIN the raked hand, not just contribute to the pot. Say you win a hand that has a .50 rake. You will receive 5 POP for that. You get 10 times the rake you pay in POP points. So to earn 2000 POP you have to have paid $200 in rake.

I've earned over 18,000 POP there (closing in on the extra $100 for 20,000) and almost all of them have been at .25/.50 and .50/.1 so you can see I've played there an awful lot. I believe that compared to Party the rake % at Tiger is quite a bit lower which is why I only play Party during the reloads.

Nothing quite like drunk Canadians on a friday night. But yeah, overall the preflop calling % has dropped quite a bit lately. I actually haven't made ANY money there the last 4 times I've played which is really unusual. It hasn't mattered this week though since I've got the 2 accounts at PokerNow to play for the $200 bonus.

Everyone else is wrong.

I haven't been there for a couple of days. Maybe they got a new batch of hosers. What limit was that at? It was limit and not NL right?

It was 1/2 limit. I don't do NL games.

Here's the direct reply from live chat about Pop points:

Quote:
Jason: do you earn pop points only for hands you win, or all hands you contribute to?
Xenia: hi Jason
Xenia: you win them according to your contribution to the pot
Jason: so if I contribute $1 and the pot ends up being $10, I get 10% of the total POP points given out for that hand?
Xenia: 1 POP is earned for each 10 cents of the acutal rake
Jason: how much rake is there total if a hand finishes at $10?
Xenia: 10%
Jason: ok so the rake is $1 and is worth 10 POP points spread proportionally to everyone who put money in the pot
Xenia: let me give you an example: 3 players contribute $30 to the pot which totals $90. the rake on the hand is $3 so each player is credited with contributing $1 of rake and receive 10 POP points

And you would believe a CS over me?

Do this next time you're playing there. On the main lobby page click on cashier then "go to cashier". Once the page opens up click on account summary at the top left. On this page you'll see your total POP points and they will be updated after every hand. Play a hand where you contribute to the pot but don't win and then refresh the account summary page and see if it changes your POP. Then wait until you win a hand and do the same thing. Then get back to me.

Nevermind. I just checked it myself and they HAVE changed it. It WAS the way I said as recently as two weeks ago though.

BTW, I'm running so bad there I lost $15 in the 10 minutes I was checking it out. I had AA at the .50/1 table and ONE GUY calls me. Flop is KJ8, turn is 4, river is A. I bet he raises I 3 bet he caps. I say you better not have QT. MOTHERF....!! I lose more damned hands to QT than any other hand. It really hates me.

Not to mention that if one POP point is worth every .10 in rake you contribute, and rake is taken out in values ending in either .05 or .10, there's no way you can have a POP value of 183.28.

I lost a $40 hand last night holding KK.

Flop 5 8 2, turn 9, river 7. He had A6.

If a straight can be made there's a real good chance it has.

I give up on this site. I can't do anything right. I get top pair top kicker, I get raped on the turn or the river by a fucking fuckhole fuckface that played some god awful hand preflop. I just lost $30 in about 30 minutes from every top pair, top kicker scenario you can imagine.

Ok, I've calmed down a bit. I won two huge pots and got back even. That would seem to be the MO of this site. Huge swings both ways. Man, unbelieveable.

You got that right. That's why I very seldom play 1/2 there.

God this site enfuriates me. I can't ever seem to win w/ TPTK because some assfuck w/ middle pair calls multiple bets and hits his 2nd pair on the river. Jesus. This 500 POP points can come fast enough for me to withdraw my money out of this god awful place.

Well after winning back all money last night that I lost previously, this site can once again suck my dick.

I have K3 in the BB. Flop comes 33K. I bet out, I get raised. Capped betting throughout each rounds of betting. 8 on the turn 9 on the river.

So I flopped boat. I assume guy has a 3 (which is entirely possible, since everyone here plays everything) or he has a K for 2 pair. He flips up KK. You have got to be fucking kidding me. The one and only hand that could beat me on the flop, the guy has. Unfuckingreal.

damn....Deftones is scaring me now!

I've been tempted to throw $100-$150 in for some fun, but I"m debating on what site to use. Suggestions?
