I think all sites offer this, do you use it?

I do every site, I think if you multi table you have to.
Your thoughts

I started because on cake the spades looked very similar to the clubs. Now I have 4 color deck on every site.

I dont think theres much of a point. But it makes the decks look a litter cooler and more colorful.

I tried it once when I was playing a lot of tables and couldn't get used to it.

There is a point to doing it, it makes flushes more noticeable when you are playing a lot of tables at once.

I like the traditional way. I just like seeing the a real cards opposed to the multicolored ones.

I make sure I use them all the time. It was a little weird the first little while that I used them, but It's just standard to me now.

I tried it on pokerstars a couple a times but the 4 colours annoyed me too much, so i stick to standard card deck.

I use the four color decks because I multitable. It is important to be able to read your hand correctly and quickly so you don't give off any tells. For me, the four color decks make it less likely for me to make a mistake.

No, I never have.

The sites made that option for people w/ bad eyes that can't see very well & for girls who like pretty colors IMO...

Yes, I always use it.

Even playing one table that is still true.

I now find playing live / paper(plastic) cards a bit strange to only see two colors now :D, though I guess 4 color ones are available ?

I started using a 4 colored deck after I made a mistake one day and thinking I had a flush when I didn't!!! Now it just looks odd not seeing 4 colored decks on sites when I play :).

I use it most places, not all. And only started maybe 6 months ago, and to my own surprise, loved it immediately. I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to many things, so at first felt like it was a 'crutch', and I was less of a decent player for using it. And I was also afraid it would become a crutch, which it has to a small extent. I think it's at Carbon where you look at your hand history, and it flashes it back w/2 color deck, and it's extra work. lol

Yes 4 color decks are available. Google-4 color playing cards.
I aways you 4 color online but it was strange the first time I played live with a 4 color deck.

I use this deck for playing serious Hold Em. And I have another for 7 card games. And it has 2 colors for spades. You can use either one. It is just a preference. I like the yellow.

I personally always use it if availbe...I once was playing 3 tourneys at once..it was late stages in one, and i looked and seen 2 hearts on flop while holding two..it then put another heart on turn...but i read it wrong.. the games were swtiching fast cause they were short handed, and got it wrong..pushed all in with a king high flush which was really a king high, lost and felt like a tool..from now on, ITs 4 colours all the way :)
