I like HORSE a lot.
I play the FullTilt Horse freeroll every opportunity I get.
Several months ago, it was a case where a banner would show on the screen, and stay there till you clicked on it, or it was your turn to act. This was OK.
Lately, there is a banner, but it goes away real fast, like 10 seconds or something equally outrageous.
I would be in favor of a bells and whistles, big banner notification.
And at FT, moving the game name up to just below the top player would help a bundle.
At Stars, the HORSE tables only show the game name in the Window header.
