I was playing the $5k boxing day freeroll and the tourney was just loaded with glitches.
I was unable to make any play when I had AK suited and watched helplessly as the clock counted down and I got folded.
After that I was unable to play so I tried logging out and logging back in again, but I couldn't get back in for several minutes..
After finally getting in again I was getting auto folded, even though I wasn't sitting and the clock never started.
Several others at the table were complaining about the same thing, but a couple of players were able to play normally and cleaning up.
It definitely wasn't on my end, browsing worked fine and I fired up PS and that was working just fine too.
I know it's a freeroll so I didn't lose anything, but it's still frustrating and definitely undermines confidence in their site, especially whatever happened only affected some players, but not others.

I definitely noticed some issues myself although I never disconnected. When I raised or went on to fold, the clock would always tick down until the decision was finalized.
I was off to a good start when 5-7 of the players on my table were constantly sitting out and coming back again, tanking the time randomly. I only got to play 3-6 hands per level before busting to the blinds.

I don't think 888 Poker software can handle a tournament with 12K players.
