Fencer: me and dp13 decided to play at the 50/100 no limit table... my small blind bet was the last thing we saw, then I got stucked there and nothing else happened. What's the matter? I got out of BB and turn my computer off twice... but I'm still stucked at that table and it doesn't work even when other players join it. ty
there is another problem with no limit holdem: say the blinds are 10/20 and i raise 60 (to make it 80) my opponent can't raise less than 60 (to make it at least 140). right now you can always raise the bigblind(20 in this example), but this is incorrect
Bwild: See my post in your fellowship. It is because you must be in Rich Text Editor. If you use that, you have to use the chain link thing to put a link in a post. If you switch out of rich text editor, doing it the way you did it works fine.
Fencer: There are three scenarios Puupia is reffering too.
Case 1: Unable to go All-In mid-hand - In this scenario, if someone is in the middle of the hand he is unable to go all-in if he holds less than the Big Blind in his stack. This prevents players from making that little bit of extra money when they hit their hand after betting has dwindled their stack size. Their bet will mostly be called, so when someone gets a monster hand, they'll be slightly miffed that they can't go all-in.
Case 2: Cash Games - In this scenario, a person sitting at the table who has lost most of their chips still has an all-in move available pre-flop (For instance, in 100/200 blinds a person with 190 chips can sit around for one round waiting for a good hand, then try and triple up). In this instance, the person would be well advised to get out with their remaining chips, as any all-in move holds absolutely no clout and they will most likely lose their chips. BUT, that decision could be left up to them.
Case 2: Tournament Play - When tournaments come into play, this will become a VERY big problem, as someone with less chips than the big blind is by the rules of tournament Hold-'Em STILL a part of the tournament, and their chips are still in play. In the situation where someone is kicked out, we have two breaches of the rules. First, they have been unfairly eliminated, as by the rules they are still in the game (albeit with a very slim chance of winning). Second, their chips are still in play, and if that 1000 in chips (Assuming 1000/2000 blinds, not uncommon at the end of extremely long tournaments) is taken out of the tournament, it becomes unfair not only to the player eliminated, but to those remaining in the tournament, as they are deprived of precious opportunities to improve their stack size with very little risk.
I hope this clarifies things, and as an aside I would like to say that I think your poker implementation is very good, especially for a first attempt on this site not only for a game different than a board game, but also for a live play event. We all understand your efforts, and though it is not often expressed, your work is very much appreciated.
Fencer: I'd say there are two critical issues in no limit poker:
1. Sometimes betting order goes out of whack in the first betting round. 2. You can't raise all-in if you have less than bb chips. Also you'll be kicked out of table for not having enough to play if you don't have atleast as many chips as bb.
With low blinds these are just annoying, but with bigger ones it becomes a real issue. These certainly have to be fixed before tournamet play is introduced. In late stages of tournament blinds will be so big that these bugs could have serious effects on the outcome of the tournament.
Fencer: No, you are correct, there are no critical problems with the limit and no limits, but the pot limits are not configured correctly, and it has affected everyone, just some people dont realize it and other people dont use the boards or bug reports.
I guess any other features IE more options like advanced play out of turn buttons or standing up without losing your seat, will be a long wait if ever?
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.
fencer, seems you have some pot limit issues? I just started trying them today... for example, there was 80 in the pot and i tried to bet 80 and it forced my bet to 20? I did this a couple of times too, and on another table earlier bobwhoosta complained about the same thing happening to him too
i dont know if this has been adressed but in headsup-play the button gets to post the small blind and act first preflop. and you should add some 5/10 no limit tables.. 100BBs is the standart buyin in online poker..
I think this is some sort of communication problem (packet loss?) resulting in i) booted off the table (in this case) ii) the 'clear table' command not being executed. I'm pretty sure this round started for me with 5 cards on the table, almost certainly left over from the previous round. I don't know enough about this sort of programming to know whether it is possible to verify that each command has been carried out before continuing but that is what seems to be required.
