Cake Poker realized that all of things available for purchase in their Cake Store were too cheap. Hard-core players just earned those gold coins too fast. I was playing on there so much, that under the old prices, I would have earned an 80GB iPod every three weeks! Glad I got two of them before they doubled the cost. :)
Still, it will take a lot longer than six weeks to get my next one. I am not playing on their as much as I was. The Neteller thing really thinned out the player base. I would still declare Cake Poker's NL HE games the easiest to beat on the Internet right now, but that's all becoming relative.
Cashouts have gotten really slow. I have had a cashout pending for a
week and a half and they have yet to even process it. Plus, you can't
buy fedex shipping for the cashouts anymore. Their answer when I
email them is:
Checks will be received 15-20 days from the date
requested. Most of that time seems to be waiting for them to even
process the check request in their system, not the time it takes after
they've sent it off to Chexx.
I've decided to pull most of my online bankrolls out at this point. I'm going to be writing more about my plan to substantially reduce the amount of poker I play soon, but I might as well start moving the money out at this point.
