See you there! =)
Hurray for Poker Night! (By the way, there's a small typo in "picked" from the first sentence :) )
Cheers, Vault! I thought that looked odd when I was previewing it. xD
WOW, an iPod. I have a Golden DS already but it's great to see Poker Night Prizes are back!
Jay can I participate again at the Poker night? Because I won last time and I'm wondering if it is alright.
Amiron - yes, of course you may participate and play with us again. :)
You may win only one seat in the championship tournament in May, however, regardless of how many weekly tournaments you win.
I'm glad you made a bigger announcement. I remember the days when the JIG Lounge would be packed each poker night. Even on off nights it would sometimes be filled with youngsters wanting to make their fortune. Back then, we had to trudge to school in bare feet 10 miles through a blizzard. Uphill both ways! ;)
Hm, I might have to learn to play poker.
Oh, thanks Jay, now you just lowered my odds of winning these fabulous prizes!
Hey Jay- just want to say thanks for running the site and putting on poker night. Keeps me sane whilst at Uni! See you on future saturdays...
Thanks for playing with us, Khoostar!
And congratulations on your win! :D
I only wish there were more TIMES as well as more prizes. 2 in the afternoon on Saturdays is just not possible for me. Sheesh. No, I'm no good, but I love Texas Hold'em! Any chance of holding "just for fun" games at other times during the week?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE to give things away, but I need to pay by bills first to be able to give away more prizes.
If more people would visit the site, we can offer up more prizes. You can help by helping to spread the word about this great site. Post links to games, reviews, and the site in general every where you can: forums, emails to friends and family, Facebook, etc. Help us spread and grow the site virally.
As for more TIMES for poker, people seem motivated only by prizes, which is a shame. I'm all for making Saturday "Poker Day" at JIG, and have the JIG poker lounge busy ALL DAY. :D
All it takes is a few people to continuously hang out there and play to reach critical mass, and then we might achieve that goal of a poker 'day'.
It's up to you, the community, though. I've provided the means, now it's up to you.
I have not been able to get triplejack to work for me since JIG poker night returned. It allows me to log on (which must mean my account is still active), it will show me the lounges; but, when I click to go into a room, it does the 'loading...' thing and the blue circles. Then it does the blue circles again like it is about to show the table but all I ever get is a grey screen.
Flash Player is working fine (since I can load the interface at all) and I've reinstalled it just for good measure. I've checked the TJ forums but they were no help. Anyone here have a clue as to why it does this to me?
OH, and the stat tracker on Kongregate doesn't load for me either, but the chat window and games do. I'm guessing they're related, but i have no idea how. Please help.
wow, posting on the JIG board is immediately helpful. I went right back to TJ, turned off my adblocker (how did I not think of that 2 minutes ago?) and it works. Doesn't solve my Kongregate problem, but at least I can play poker tonight
3 comments in a row, I know it's a bit much. But mission not accomplished, now I'm getting a failed to connect to the server message, same thing as Kongregate. Why/how is flash player prevented from connecting a remote server?
Hi Mikey - I'm guessing that it must be a conflict with one of the extensions you're running.
Have you tried using a different browser, one without any extensions enabled at all? Try that and see how you make out.
OK, tonight it really seems that I'll make it to the poker room. At last. I'm logged in already :)
well, i tried setting up a different firefox user and loading it without any extensions and that didn't work. i also tried loading TJ through IE and got the same server error...
If you've eliminated the possibility of an extensions conflict, then it must be something with your local firewall that's preventing the traffic. =/
Must be me...
I logged ion, found the JIG lounge - and then what am I supposed to do? I can go to the different tables and watch people play there but i can't join any of the tables even though they are not full.
What am i doing wrong and what am i supposed to do?
OK, I see now that i was supposed to be here right in the beginning. Well, I was here before that and came back a few minutes short.
Doesn't really matter though as I find the interface of Triple Jack a bit annoying and I found only one or two names that I recognized so I would be playing total stangers anyways - so I guess I'll go and play Europoker I like its interface more.
Would've been good to play against you, folks, but shit happens.
I was banned for 1 infraction. Thats not cool. Well congrats JIG you found the worst possible game server for poker night.
Banned for 1 infraction? You must have done more than that to provoke a ban. I know all the admins there. That's just not how things are done. Were you mouthy? Did you put up a fight?
Triplejack is most definitely not the worst possible game server. In my opinion, it's one of the very best free money poker sites around, and the admins work very hard to make sure the environment is family-friendly and respectful to all players.
But I am sorry you had a negative experience.
Hey Jay, great poker tourny. It was alot of fun. Just wondering, was there a prize for that last one that we played? It was the second tourny so I am not sure. I had heard that there was a one month membership and a Big fish game involved, but this is my first week so i'm not sure.
Thanks for playing with us Soccerspider! ^_^
And your Power Player should have already been taken care of. As for the Big Fish game coupon, sure I'll give you one, too.
Just send me an email (it's at the bottom of the left sidebar of every page on JIG) and I'll get it right over to you. :)
I played the 2nd tourny last week which I stumbled across by luck and noticed it was said there was a 2nd one because of the confusion with US daylight savings. I'm in the UK whare the clocks havn't changed yet so does anyone know what time todays tourny starts over here? I really enjoyed last weeks and I'm looking forward to playing today.
sillybuttons - in the Link Dump Friday reminder on the main JIG page, I always post a link to an international time converter you can use to find out exactly what time JIG Poker Night is in your area. For the UK, I believe the time is 8:00PM this week.
AH right. Cheers Jay. I never managed to get online last night because of a power cut. GRRRR. Sooooo, see yas all next week. (Excepting for an alien abduction, meteor strike on my house, some idiot from the electric company who doesn't know how to do his job at the end of my street, etc)
I wanted to make certain that I still have a seat at the championship tournament. It's definitely been a while since I have played, and SecretPlayer was tracking things when I won a weekend tourney.
You sure do, deanmc.
I'll be posting a reminder sometime tomorrow with all the qualifiers so far, along with an announcement regarding the last chance to qualify for our prize winning tournament next weekend.
HUZZAH TO SECRET_PLAYER FOR 2nd!
hey Jay. just wanted to thank you for putting this whole thing on- really great of you. maybe next year...!
