Online Poker Room critiques
Intent here is to provide a critique of any site any of us play. Hopefully a perfect Online Poker Room could be built from these critiques.
a critique of the players there, or your bad luck, or bad beats. Rather a critique of the comfort level, or sitting experience at a online table.
I'll admit up front I may not have found some of the options or features at any of the sites I mention.
For instance, I tend to not play much at PokerStars
for 2 reasons, no detachable chat, and I just haven't found a table skin I like, and there is something about the shape of the table that is wrong. Add to that that chat is disabled when anyone is all in, and there are too many things that i dislike there. I still play there cause , well, it's PokerStars
I should probably add here that I am a fan of the Full Tilt
experience. Still I would add that I would like to see the chat options found below.
, there are too many long delays. And no sizeable screens. But they do have that nifty fold and show option.
for me is very uncomfortable. I consider the graphics there to be just short of gawdawful. Sizeability is a joke. And chat is less than friendly.
To me, any site should have sizeable tables, and detachable chat. I would like to see more sites with fold and show buttons, and something Paradise
has, an ability to see who is on the rail.
Poker is amongst other things, a social game, and social tables are more pleasant for me. So a few chat options could enhance the social aspects of the game;
-The ability to choose what color chat is over dealer info. Not just the Silent, normal, everything options.
-The ability to pick specific dealer info to highlight. I like knowing what I folded. Helps me analyze my play.
I can imagine a day not to distant, when each site will offer something akin to Poker Tracker along with a bigger rake, or higher tourney fee. Maybe live sound and even webcams.
I am a bit suprised that no room I have found has added a sound option for the background casino room. Chips clinking, players roaring, and sighing, and an occasional crowd roar and cheer.
These are a few of my likes or dislikes.
