10% Discount Code for PokerTableRatings.com

Posted on Jul 22, 2009 by Gugel in Data Analysis

Update 4/8/2010: The survey described below is no longer running. For 10% off your hand histories, use the discount code pollen at checkout.

So PokerTableRatings sent me an email today and asked me to fill out a survey.  I’m a fan of the site and they’re giving away $30,476 worth of free stuff, so I figured why not.  Judging from the questions they asked on the survey, it looks like PokerTableRatings isn’t going to be free much longer.   They were asking questions like “How much would you be willing to pay for PTR?” and “How much value do you place on being able to see your opponent’s stats?”  It’s kinda a bummer that they’re probably going to start charging for their service, but it’ll hopefully be a pretty reasonable price (especially since you’re not supposed to use PTR while you’re logged into Full Tilt).

Anyway, the 1st 300 people to participate in the survey get a free $10 gift card that they can use to buy hand histories and a free ebook from Royal Poker Club called “Secrets of Winning Sit and Go Tournaments”.  I have no idea if that ebook is any good, but it’s for a price you can’t beat…

PTR did something a bit silly and I have to call them out on it.  They let you access the “Thank you for completing this survey” URL without actually completing the survey…  So, if you’re lazy and don’t want to take the survey, claim your $10 promotional code (SURVEY09) and free Secrets of Winning Sit and Go Tournaments ebook.

    Actually for the first 300 it was $10 free, now it’s 10% off.

    We didn’t do it by accident :) It’ll probably be up for a while longer, so enjoy!

    Also, just to clarify – we don’t know where we’re going yet, that is the purpose of the survey. We have no immediate plans to remove any features or charge for them :)

    Man, it was way cooler when I thought I found a leak in your system. Oh well, still a pretty good deal.

    I’m glad to hear you have no plans to charge for the existing features…though I’m sure you guys can change your mind at the drop of a hat :)

    I hope they start charging.

    1. Growth

    They will have capital to make improvement

    2. Userbase

    It’ll most likely keep the more casual users from using it.
