    puupia: I am really sorry for that. Due to some unexpected events I had no time for anything and I admin that I was just passively waiting for the club to fill itself. Hopefully this will be changed in the near future.

    I have just created 2 tournaments there ($1.10 and play money), so let's see what happens.

    mook53lhd: Your keyboard does not have a Shift key or you never learned that sentences usually start with capital letters?

    Although I don't like people of you type (who try to tell me what I should do and go crazy if I don't) but, what the hell, hopefully you will understand this explanation:

    1) Our poker model had been thoroughly tested many times and nobody every complained about any unusual behaviour. Yes, some people reported that they cannot see they hole cards etc., but that's just a common problem of browser based applications (Javascript). The model itself works correctly, always shuffles the card deck before dealing and the cards are always random. When I mentioned that sometimes in the future I would rewrite the model, I referred to the client side because the current Javascript table had been used mostly as an experiment, not a flawless and full featured engine.

    2) Have you ever tried to play on, say, PokerStars or any other major poker site? The number of fish players that continuously complain about unfair conditions and "that moron always completes his straight" or "there is a miracle river card every second hand" is enormous, yet nobody does anything about it. Why? Because it is just a poor excuse for a bad play or misunderstanding of basic poker nature. Read discussion forums, you might learn something.

    3) If you don't like poker on BrainKing, please go and play elsewhere. Our site is focused mostly on turn based games and if I occasionally experiment with other technologies, it does not mean that I am prepared to spend every free moment on fixing them. It is my site and I have my own priorities.

    And above all, please stop acting like a jerk. Thank you.

    Bwild: I am sure there will be much more interest in BrainKing poker when I add multi-table tournaments with interesting prizes. However, it won't happen until the next version of BrainKing is done. Anyway, it is definitely planned to do.

    Subject: Re:And I have a right to ignore them.
    Bwild: Of course I do. And before I start to call you names you won't like, let me make one more attempt of, er, explanation:

    1) Paid membership is not mandatory, nobody is forced to pay here to play. Especially poker is (and always will be) free for all.
    2) The page of membership level benefits clearly specifies what you get when you decide to upgrade. It says nothing about our duty to fix all possible bugs, add new features or discuss with people who don't want to accept the site rules.

    I am sure it is clear enough for everyone, mostly because it is not the first time I post this kind of response. No more off topic responses here, please.

    Czuch: There is nothing to comment yet. My local tests show that pot limit poker is OK and if something wrong happened recently, I hope you can imagine how difficult and complicated it is to reproduce such situations and pinpoint possible problem sources.
    Furthermore, I am busy with something else at the moment, so you must be patient and wait. As far as I know, the majority of users has no problems with limit and no limit poker here, so I can say that there is no critical issue which would require my immediate attention.

    emelin: Thank you, it's clear now. And what happens if two players share the same pair (as the winning combination) and the same kicker as well? Would the second and third kicker card come to a consideration?

    Summertop: Since my Pocket PC is not the best option to write long texts, I will respond to your points later today. Meanwhile, I would like to say that we do not want to compete with other poker sites and our goal is not to create the best possible poker game ever. Take it as a new addition to this site, not as a new trend which should change the style of BrainKing at all.
    Furhermore, as I was receiving reactions of other users, the majority of them does not care if the graphics is outstanding or not. The playability is always more important and although I definitely plan to improve the poker graphics in the future, it is not the highest priority task (and never will be).

    More details later.

    Subject: Kicker
    Speaking of bugs, I would like to clarify the kicker card problem because I was searching the web for a proper definition and some sources say that a kicker card must be always taken from player's hand (hole cards), while others describe a kicker as the highest unused card, no matter if it belongs to the table cards or not.

    Currently, we use the first approach. But if there is a reliable and official source which proves that a kicker card can be any card (not used in the winning combination), I would like to know about it.

    Thanks everyone for valuable comments and suggestions. I have been already thinking of a reward system and I think that Brains could be used in some way as well. All details will be closely described soon when the remaining bugs (flush comparation etc.) are fixed.

    Czuch: 1) It is designed to give the winner only a multiple of his own bet (multiplied by the number of remaining players) and the rest is moved to the side pot. If you think that it didn't work in some situation, please post the table URL and the round number.
    2) This is a known bug, caused by my wrong understanding of this rule. It is going to be fixed soon.
