I took the offer of a free $8 over at 888 poker.com from here. Nice of them to give me free money so I can try out the client.
Which brings me to an issue. The client.Either I'm a complete idiot, or it's awful.
Took my free $8 and used it to enter a couple of Sng's and an MTT. Got that up to about $13 and decided to see how the client works with stacked tables while playing cash. Strike 1, can't stack, have to tile or cascade.
Ok, cascade it is. And now my big issue. The client pops up the table that needs action to the front. All fine and dandy, except that it doesn't leave it there. If another table suddenly needs attention it won't wait for you to act on the first table. Up comes the new table, and that lovely pair of aces is gone forever before you can get the table back.
Dunno if I'm doing something wrong, possibly I am. I've tried in the settings section to first enable, then disable, popup on action. Nothing works.
Posting this while 5 tabling, was considering 888 as a harbour for my roll if I ever get it off full tilt, probably just to clear the bonus and then move on. But if the client is that bad, no chance.
It appears that the issue may have been the need for a restart of the client. No idea why the client would need restarting in order for settings to take effect, but tables are now popping up as expected
