The online chat can get kind of gnarly while playing online ! What is your preference - On or Off ?

A little bit of both for me. Mostly off unless it is the League games, but more of a lurker...lol. I really try to focus on the game.

Yes sometimes some people can get a little nasty in other games, if it is really bad, I will mute the player. Problem solved.

I sometimes try to get some information out of my opponents who use it, but in general I prefer not to use it, especially when I'm playing multiple tables, it's easy to disable or ignore it, so it's not something that will affect my game, however in live games it becomes uncomfortable and i prefer to just play.

Usually I don't even look at the chat, online poker is extremely fast, especially turbo tournaments, so I avoid distractions as much as possible.

Usually I disable my chat, I got tired of toxic ppl and comments. Even the opposite, when you find nice ppl to talk and joke about the hands it can take my focus away. Overall: muted.

I think there are times when it’s worth turning it on, but there are times when it’s worth turning it off.

I leave it enabled, but I usually can't read or follow because I play 4 tables unless it is a game with several acquaintances, or an exceptional occasion

Chat

I usually leave the chat option on. Sometimes one can learn players trends etc. If chat gets out of line I will shut that players chat off or the entire chat option.

GL ALL :D

Hi! I never turn off the chat, but most of the time I just ignore it. And sometimes they write funny things. I rarely see anything bad in the chat. Because of isolated cases, I don't think it's worth paying attention to.

Yes, there's fun of it!
What wrote above, what I meant is, the bottom line is to disable the chat. But once in a while I keep it enabled, of course, and some times, players really say funny things.

i leave it on, you meet the most interesting people playing poker, of course there are the ones that feel they have to tell you how lucky you are, or call you names, those people i just block from chat. but for the most part, people are civil. cheers!

Personally I let the chat activate but I avoid chatting with other players because I prefer to stay focused on my game.

I turned everything from chat to throwables off just because its distracting me from the game. When i had chat still on some players even wished that i get cancer or that i die soon. This way i dont have to deal with that nonsense on small stakes.

Rather off than on for me. If I see, someone is writing something to me, I will reply, but pretty rare I engage in other conversations or start my own.

Always off, because most of the time I play on 4 or more tables

Sometimes I enjoy chat. Especially when I'm bored or sleepy.
