re: Poker & Anyone play on Everest (not everleaf)???
Registered just to comment on this thread.
I like the games on Everest, however the software has certain problems which greatly impact the gaming experience.
First of all, there's no rationalization for having a minimum table size of 640x480. Most poker rooms allow much smaller tables and the games still remain easily playable. With a minimum table size of 640x480, the tiling option allows only 6 non-overlapping tables on a 1920x1080 monitor, which I assume is the common maximum. If the size of the regular tables cannot be decreased, I'd suggest a separate mini-view, such as in the old iPoker software or current Microgaming software.
Secondly, when there is overlap with the tables (which is quite often), the "Bring to front" function does not help much. The problem is that the table pops up regardless of whether another table requires action or not. After the recent addition of cascading tables, this issue is especially important, as tables popping up before the player has acted on the first table makes cascading pretty much useless. On how to improve, please look at the PokerStars
software, where the tables pop up in the order of urgency, but only after the player has acted on the table which popped up first.
Third, the bet slider could use improvement (I think this was already suggested here). Buttons for selecting the proper bet size preflop (3bb, 4bb, 5bb) and postflop (1/2 pot, 3/4 pot) would be a great addition, especially for multitablers. The current Ongame software offers a simple example, and other software such as PokerStars and Microgaming actually allow the player to customize the bet slider according to their preferences.
I think earlier Everest only allowed the player to open 6 or 8 tables simultaneously. This restriction has been lifted since, but the software hasn't been updated accordingly. I hope future updates improve multitabling on Everest poker, as that is currently my main reason for not focusing my games on the site.
