Just a heads up that I will be moving soon and my stats page will be unavailable starting around the 1st of November. The ddpoker@_ercemer.dyndns.org e-mail address will not work during this time as well.
My home network will be down for 3-5 months while I move, and with the current state of the DD Community (i.e. dead) I do not plan on turning the stats page back on after the move.
Thanks for the support on the stats page over the years, I’m glad the community was able to get some use out it.
I hope the move is a postive one for you. Your stats page has been so valuable. I think it's the way we truly measure ourselves here at DD. Really hope you would reconsider. I echo the statement, tell us what we could do to make you reconsider. I don't think we ever want to see DD go away, along with your efforts. Best of luck to you.
Coyote and I as well as many others do not consider DDPoker to be dead.
Instead we are in a new phase where we are offering good formats that last longer and are generally regarded as Deep Stack formats.
These games are scheduled almost nightly during prime time hours and are predictable because the hosts have set aside days and time frames for the lobby to open. The lobbies then remain open for anywhere from 30 mins to 1 hour to give players an opportunity to wait for as large a turnout as possible. We have had success in getting between 20 and 30 players for games that could last 2.5 hours to 3 hours to find the final winner of these games.
Many people who play on a regular basis have started mourning the loss of Your stats page including myself. I consider that stats page as a very valuable source for people who play serious poker.
I will happily make a donation to you on an annual basis to assist in any expenses that you might occur in order to keep the stats page alive for us Poker fanatics. I will also try to get others to donate also so as to keep you reimbursed for your expenses.
I am distributing this e-mail response to you, and sharing it with others on my e-mail list so that they can be up to date on your offer to keep the stats page on line.
One idea I have which might help for a bigger turn out would be a constant ring game running. Something where you could buy in and leave at any time similar to a real casino or poker stars. I have a spare computer that i could run around the clock to keep a game running.
I cant speak for everyone but ill check for a game for 10 maybe 15 minutes and if i dont find one i say fuck it and find other stuff to do.
and with the current state of the DD Community (i.e. dead)
i blame nwnut.
Hey Adam "Shitt" (we excuse your misspelling using ff)....
You're a PUPPY in terms of DDPoker history, and yet you think you can run your mouth here?
Have you looked at Hercs stats for your own play (I have) or anyone else (I have).
You have a 10% WIN ration in you VERY SHORT TIME here (a mere 290 games played)
Mine is 17% over 3,400+ games played.
You have hosted a tremendous 55 games (your formats really suck).
I have hosted almost 4,000 games for DDPoker. My formats don't suck as bad as yours do.
As a PLAYER, you LOSE more money than you win.
Your ROI is NEGATIVE. AVG= -11, Actual= -6.5. That's horrible!
My AVG=+28.6 and my actual ROI=+40.
All of the above stats are on Hercs STAT PAGE.
One STAT not covered here is MOUTH (YOU WIN) You obviously have a LARGE one blowing your horn in here. What makes you think anyone cares who you blame for ddpokers demise when your own history in the game is so short, and so POOR as both a player and a (sic) HOST?
This is not a moderated forum Adam SHITT, so take your opinion and shove it. Join POAG'S club or start your own. (POAG is Slyfox, including all of his bogus alias names he uses).
Take my chips if you can asshole (I get it now! Schiff- a poop/asshole... makes sense). Try to improve your stats and make mine go down.... Host more games than I have OR, just keep running your MOUTH and see if you can collect more friends than Sly has over the years when you were still in diapers and blowing all the boys on the block.
Get rid of everybody with "fox" in their name, and every new name Michelle17/Defcon One/Adam Schiff uses and I'll go away too. You're all forum pissants. I can write 1 or 2 posts in 6 months after all your nonsense and make you look like what your are: LOSERS in the forums and AT THE TABLES.
