does pokerstars charge you for sitting out on their tables
Posted: 12-01-2010 10:39 PM
I decided to sit out on all tables on next big blind, checked my balance and its like $260 even, but then sat out on this table a few blinds too long and then when all my windows closed I checked the balance again and its 1 cent lower. I didn't play a hand after checking my balance, and there were no antes or nothin

where did that 1 cent go

No, they don't charge you to sit at their tables. They just charge you for scooping pots.  Smile

how could I misread the difference between $260 and $259.99?

I wrote down my time/roll at the start of a session, and at the end of that session I wrote down the time I ended the session. then I clicked sat out on next bb on all tables. then I recorded how much my roll was at. it was at $260, then when I'm off on all tables its at $259.99 and haven't played a hand since recording it down.
I play 10NL right now, so even if I was small blind it still doesn't make any sense.

do you use a tracker? could figure out if your balance is accurate with it.

for a penny I wouldn't care if its a glitch Im not even gonna go to support for that. but I'd monitor it carefully and if its a intermittent problem then you should do something about it

ya.... if I had a tracker that'd be great. I think I'll look through my hand histories and note down how much money I had on each table and then maybe email someone from support if I have enough evidence

That seems like a lot of work for a penny. I would note it and see if it happens again. If so then look into it. Otherwise you have better use for your time IMO.

Cashier delays until you are off all tables for at least a couple of mins. It is almost always a couple hands behind.

Noticed it myself quite often. I mash refresh too often i should theoretically avoid looking at the cashier so much.

once the hands are completed, check your balance again, and you will see you have all the money in your acct...
