Re: Lock Poker
I play on merge network (actually play on carbon but it's the same cashier system and player base).
The sit and go's didnt go off as often as I would like, for the 5.50 single table it would take like 30 minutes to an hour at times. The cash games were always going. They were tougher than stars and tilt, I believe this is probably only because serious/better players are will to find and jump through the hoops to play on merge.
As for buying in, they used to take my debit card, haven't tried in a while. I think this is more dependent on whether your bank will let the transaction go through.
Cashouts are the major issue there. Im not sure what the min is, but I don't think it's $500. I think in US you can only get a check and they take forever to process. I've had 2 buddies run it up and then try to cash out only to wait 6-8 weeks to get the check. Both got tired of waiting, cancelled cash out and proceeded to blast off the money. I think that what they kind of expect.
Maybe others have had better luck...
