    Seems like there is still some sort of an issue with prior hands being shown, but they are not what cards you really have?

    Someone mentioned that it might have to do with when someone leaves the table or joins it or something like that? But this time, it was the same three people at the table.

    I showed that I had a k q, the same cards from my previous hand, and then it said I won the hand with a full house, jacks and 6s... the 3 jacks were on the board, as was a 6, but i didnt see a 6 in my hand

    Just noticed that leaving the List of Poker tables page open burns up bandwidth at around 15MB/hr (more than actually playing).

    When having problems with the poker tables, Fencer needs to know what table you are on and the game #.

    Czuch: The same happened to me twice. . . but I think the problem is this:
    if I'm playing poker and there's a move in any other game made by one of my opponents, the poker cards simply don't change from one hand to the next... I keep seeing the same hand, but it's not there anymore... I have two new cards but I can' see it until I refresh the connection.
    I hope you can understand my english... sorry

    One thing about the Limit Tables, very soon now they will be unprofitable for players with higher chip stacks. Can we get a table with limits of 50/100, and stacks of 10000-20000?

    (09:51:06) Labbeda wins the pot with four sevens. The kicker card is nine.
    (09:51:06) Labbeda wins 1030 chips (main pot).

    I agree with Czuch...The poker tables really need a "Stand Up" feature. which leaves you as a spectator.

    Sitting in a new seat? Easily done by making them post a big blind to sit.

    Also...It would be REALLY nice (and make for faster play) if there were buttons to pre-select what you want to do:
    Check
    Check/Fold
    Fold
    Call Any Amount

    I dont mean to keep harping here.... I think it is really important to be able to be dealt out of a few hands without having to leave a table.

    Also, if we can get up and change seats without having to miss the next hand to do it would be nice too.

    Another random thought.... in fellowship poker, would it be best to use separate money from our public money stacks?

    Separate systems for each fellowship?

    In real life poker, if you stand up or leave before your blind, and then sit back down, either in a different seat or back at the same one, you have an option to either post the blinds and be dealt in or to wait until the blinds hit you again, and then post them and be dealt in, you cant get out of paying blinds just by getting up from a table.

    Same goes for new players joining a table, if they want, they can post blinds and get dealt in straight away, or they can just wait for the normal action to get to them.

    Tournament play is a bit different.... you never really leave a table until you have no money left, so if you are there or not there, you post the blinds in turn, and you are always dealt cards, and you are check folded from there... so if it comes your play with no raises in front of you, you automatically check, and if there have been a raise, you are automatically folded.

    Subject: Stack sizes relative to Small/Big Blinds.
    One thing I would like to see are tables where the buy-in can be 100 times the blinds added together. It is the way they allow it in most No-Limit Hold 'em Cash games, and allows for more strategic play, as you can now sit back and wait for good chances to double up. 10-20 is outside the range by letting you have 1000 chips to start, while the 100-200 tables are going to be slugfests, as any contested pot will be almost an all-in!!!! (For instance, when the blinds are 100-200, and there are 3 callers, the pot is now 900, and you are on the button. You have A A. What can you bet so that most people will fold their hands, hopefully leaving you heads up against one player? At least 2000 chips! Then you are most likely all-in post-flop if you have a hand. Not very strategic, no room for good moves.)

    -Zak

    P.S.

    Of course, if you have A A, who needs good moves with a hand like that???

    Subject: Big Blind Sit Outs Solved!!!
    The way to fix anyone who wants to sit out during S/B Blind, then sit back in, is to cause ANYONE who is sitting at the table to either post the blind once, or wait until the Big Blind comes up. That way they have to pay to play, no matter what. It's what they do in the larger, real money sites.

    Subject: No matter what...
    No matter what you do, someone will find a way to try to cheat the system...

    1. Stand up...simply means you become an "observer" for that table. Someone else may/might take your seat. and you might have to sit somewhere else to get back in the action. Maybe the table even fills up and you can't sit down.

    2. Abusive attitude. With ANY site, yes even BrainKing, people can become victims of abusive. Usually verbal (foul language, taunting, etc.). Or even manipulating the rules so they never have to pay a blind or get some other advantage.

    At some point, as the tables grow, I would hope the poker tables get a group of "Moderators", just like the other forums. Those encountering abusive players would need a way to "report" the abuse.

    Subject: Re:
    AbigailII:not only are blinds common...but a part of the rules. but I agree on the buy-in. normally its equal to the first bet amount. this prevents folks from sitting in 4 maybe 5 hands...then after not receiving a suitable pocket...just sit out when its their turn to post a blind, only to sit back in after the blinds have passed them.

    Subject: Re:
    coan.net: The typical way of avoiding people "sitting out" when it's their turn to be a blind is to require people to pay a big (or small) blind when joining a game in progress. Either by having them wait until they the big blind rotate to their seat, or by having them pay a big blind for the first hand they play after joining.

    Alternatively, one could get rid of the blinds all together and require everyone to play an ante. But it's common for Texas Hold Em to have blinds instead of antes.

    Bwild: .... except you don't get their money when you win! (Don't get me wrong - I agree that it is stupid to sit out just so you don't have to place an automatic bid before you see your cards) - but the point was brought up before in this Discussion Board - which is why i was bringing it back up, since being able to sit out a hand or two and still stay at the table would seem to fall right into those who play that way hands.

    The only issue I see is that some people apparently like to sit up when it is their turn to have a small/big blind, and then sit back down when/where they don't have the small/big blind..... well at least someone complained about that before. Would something like that cause issues like this?

    Bwild: Sometimes though it is nice to sit behind everyone where you have the last option to call or raise - and if you your put chips in out of order and decide to raise higher, those who might have called before might not now because they don't want to go higher... but if the order was correct, they would have called (so some money was already in), and then also be more willing to raise along with it to put even more money into the pot for you to win. If the order gets out of order - then that strategy will not work anymore.

    Agree - not a very big deal, but enough of a deal that would be nice to get fixed.
