i find that throwing the laptop against the wall does not help the problem

It has happened to me many times, the internet in my country is very bad, it falls a lot, and the first thing I think before a tournament is that the internet does not compromise my participation in important phases.

It also happens sometimes. But what can we do about it? I think, to accept and live on. Well, or change the internet operator.

go all in and get back the chips, and from now on all in every time with decent hands!!!no more c-betting, raising or nice moves!!!
Your stack has only one chance to survive...LUCK!!! And if your poker site doesn/t bring you back in time, change the poker site!!!It is not your providers fault, when you are still connected TO ALL OTHER INTERNET ACTIVITIES!!!


+ pokerstars they know, when you are disconnected, before you are disconnected!!!
- all the others (worst is ipoker, they bring you back to watch your chips die on the table)

If my internet provider had connection problems I would switch, if possible. If not, maybe play cash games intead because losing internet access in key spots in tournament will hurt your ability to make money because 10 hands is huge late in tournaments.

I had the same problem I did include something in my case it was a program that would be constant not a big connection to the Internet . I mean the constant exchange of Internet traffic packets then there is no disconnection. try it can help and good luck with your game

Today I had the same problem :( , it was a hyper sat , I was getting disconnected all the time . Last hand : I got disconnected , then before time ended I saw my hand was AQ , I pressed the call button as soon as possible at the last second (the right option would be to raise ) , at the board I found a Q but very wet it was , I bet , he cbets small , I say to myself he wants to steal the pot because I am getting disconnected and yes , I got disconnected for seconds . Frustrated and ungry as I was I managed at the last second to shove when I got connected , but then I saw after a small delay pause he had a flush at the flop :(

Never mind I learned my lesson . Always be patient when you have disconnection problems and be very carefull with how you play :(
I would say at least at the sats I would go all in preflop to be sure :)

From this no one not insured, this happened I think with every, and as usually in the most inopportune moment, only tolerate and wait, or reverse provider the Internet!

depenndign on the platfrom ,you can switch from desktop to mobile, in order not to loose a lot of time. For pokerstars it works, just use your mobile data to reconnect fast

in such situations I immediately start the poker client from the mobile phone and continue the game, and if I play a lot of tables and it will not be convenient for me to play with the phone, then I distribute the wi-fi from the phone to the laptop and I continue the game! everything is simple - bad internet is no longer a problem!

Instal pokerstars on your phone, so you can use data off your phone when your own internet is down.

It has happened to me to end the electricity and when it came back the modem took even longer to work properly.
I also lost some hands.
Unfortunately unforeseen things happen.
We get angry, but it's not the end of the world.
Just a connection problem.


Good luck in your upcoming tournaments!

I usually try to reset my internet but I’ve started not playing big tournaments during weather in which power outages/ internet failing could happen

Wow, this is simple. Change your ISP, lol.

Now really, if it's a really important always have two devices, one with internet and a cell-data one. :) Switch when you're in trouble.

Well what I do is have a data plan on my phone. So when the internet gives trouble I put the hotspot on my phone and connect it to my laptop.
