During the first two years of its existence, IDNPlay has hardly been visible on the Internet. During the second half of 2016, however, it climbed to second place in the PokerScout ranking. Despite this, IDNPlay has never promoted its services in the Western market.
In fact, it has not even been active in the Western market for years. IDNPlay’s success is thought to be primarily due to an intense marketing campaign in local markets. For example, the network participated in gaming conferences in Asia and hosted charity events. In fact, the network’s website is now translated into English.
One of the most controversial practices of IDNPlay is its non-random card dealing. This practice may favor multiple players and “bots” and is alleged to make players less likely to fold. However, it may also prevent new players from feeling discouraged.
Many poker players argue that they are seeing more bad beats at online poker than they would at a live game. It is said that online players tend to be in a position to see more hands per hour and are more likely to see improbable bad beats. Also, online players tend to see larger pots and more random bad beats than live players do. This is due to the fact that online sites don’t have to pay interest on player bankrolls. Therefore, if the player is constantly “topping up” his chip stack, he won’t have to worry about rounding issues.
In addition, some poker sites offer side games against the house for real money. This can be a lucrative source of revenue if the player’s investment is low-risk. For example, if a player makes a low-stakes deposit at an online poker site, he will usually be offered a free roll tournament. During these freerolls, he will be competing against less-experienced opponents. In addition, the online poker site may also be willing to accept payments in a variety of currencies.
There are also a number of independent doorways into poker networks. This means that it is possible for someone with access to the site’s system to cheat. This type of insider cheating occurs when a person has a trusted connection to the site. It can also occur without the site managers’ knowledge. A number of online discussion forums have reported instances of this type of cheating. However, the poker site may have an internal or third-party system to detect such cheating.
In addition to this, it is also possible for an insider to use sophisticated tracking software to detect patterns that are outside of the norm. However, this is also something that is not generally available in the public domain. Some sites also have digital device fingerprinting, which allows them to recognize and block players who have previously been banned.
The majority of online poker traffic occurs on just a few major networks. However, there are more than 600 independent doorways into these networks. This means that the amount of traffic is usually much higher than what the majority of online poker players are actually experiencing.
