Error in Pokerdom software. I bet on the flop. The next player is disconnected from the Internet and is given extra time for his turn. He does not reconnect into the game in time, but still without making a call continues to participate in the hand, with a note “All-in” on his avatar.
On our site we have implemented a “Disconnect protection” system to protect player funds in case of internet connection failure. This feature is available to players once a day (24 hours). And it triggers automatically. In case of a connection failure a player plays for the amount that he had already added to the main pot before he was disconnected. A player’s avatar displays “All-in” in this case. The distribution result is calculated as if the user went “All-in” and had zero stakes. This feature is very helpful in those regions where internet connection is unstable and it is not possible to quickly re-enter the game. If you see a player use this feature every day and you suspect malice in his actions, you can contact the customer support and report the player’s nickname. We will investigate this user’s hands. In case an evidence of abuse is found, Pokerdom reserves the right to deny this user’s access to this feature.
To use this feature please contact technical support (via online chat or e-mail directly to [email protected]). If you started to feel obsessed with the game or it began to have an adverse impact on your life, you can voluntarily exclude yourself from the game for a certain period of time or permanently.
First of all, check your email (including “Spam” folder). In most cases, Security Service sends a notification to your e-mail. You can also contact technical support to find out the reason why your account was blocked. Account lock-out takes place in case of gross Pokerdom rules violations or during an inspection of an account/user for fraud. The scam may be run by a single user, or a group of individuals against Pokerdom and (or) other players. After the investigation, the account may be unblocked in case the player's guilt was not proven or doubtful. We hope for your understanding. Security and fair play on our website is our top priority.
It is possible, but only under the condition that both accounts are verified, and the players play in turns. Otherwise, it may be considered as multiaccounting or teamplay.
It is not possible to change your account currency.
It is possible in very rare cases that include good reasons to change your account.
At the moment we do not support software for statistics collection. Pokerdom Administration opposes the use of applications that can give one player an advantage over others. This Includes helping users determine “characteristics” of their opponents. We recommend using notes and color markers.
For example, you have a quad of sevens and your opponent beats you, since he has a straight flush (or any other hand that is more powerful than a quad of sevens). If you are playing at a table with a Bad Beat jackpot, a jackpot will be drawn. Please note that a Bad Beat jackpot is drawn in case several important conditions are met, you can learn about them on this page.
Click on the stars over a CASH section in the lobby.
A new window will appear.
In the left bottom corner there will be a switch to show or hide the status.
You should contact the customer support. Report the offender’s nickname, time (number of hand or table) or provide a screenshot that confirms the violation. A technical support manager will check the chat log and if a violation took place he will block the chat for the reported user. For the first time the chat will be blocked temporarily, depending on the "gravity". In case of a second abuse the chat for the offender will be blocked permanently.
Your access to the chat may have been blocked due to a complaint by another player of your messages with obscene language. If you are confident that is not the case, please contact our technical support for additional information.
