The only thing that annoys me about online poker is the lack of ability to turn off these “childish” things with throwing tomatoes, saps, fireworks, etc. at each other. The last thing I want in this game is for all sorts of nonsense to flash before my eyes.

At pokerstars I wish there wasn't the childishness of throwing things at people, even Trash Can has it, no one deserves it, another thing at Pokerstars was to have its own Hud like GGpoker, and at GGpoker itself it has the sit&go modality, rest is ok..

In online poker, I'd like to see improvements in security, regulations, user-friendly software, innovative game formats, and responsible gaming measures. I appreciate the convenience and accessibility of online poker but find issues like slow payouts and occasional technical glitches annoying.

That feature is horrible, If you were in a live casino at a table and you threw anything but money at someone, security would escort you out tout suite!

Interesting question and interesting replies.......
Part 1 Improvements - The only real thing I can think of is jurisdictional. I am in canada, so I can only play against other Canadians which means you may wait a while for the tables to fill to play your favourite style of game. So opening up our game to the way it used to be would be GREAT!!
Part 2 Likes - The ability to take notes on players and save them, then refer to them later on down the road..
Part 3 Dislikes - - Remove the "throwable" as stated above you can't do that in live poker why online? YES.... I have mine disabled everywhere I can.

I'm pretty sure you can turn them off anywhere but GGpoker. I have them disabled at 888, ACR, PS.

I beg you, tell me where. I seem to have searched all the settings on the PS, but I couldn’t find it anywhere.🙏

No problem, it's settings →Table appearance →Animation, then scroll to "throwables" and disable them. But I have everything in this animation tab disabled, so it's just an old mercury theme for me.

Edit. Now I see that you're from Ukraine. I wrote that for the English version of the client, but in the Russian version throwables are called "предметы". I don't know how they are called in Ukrainian or what language in the room you use, but just keep that in mind - that these throwables have a different name, and that's probably why you couldn't find them.

Gods, how did I not see this?! Thank you so much, you have no idea what you did for me. And thank you for your concern about the language, it’s very nice of you - I use the English interface language so that the hand history is saved correctly. Thanks again, all the best!

I would like a dealer to deal cards and we all saw it would be cool to be introduced into poker in a casino so the power of attorney for poker hands would be even better and people would trust poker. I hope to make such an introduction someday and we'll all be happy

I would like to be able to legally play anywhere online in the US,

If I could design a perfect site it would be focused more on all forms of poker and be in dark colors and streamlined with no animations, throwables, endless rebuys and it would also be fast paced games with no player taking max time every single hand... sometimes for big decisions or on the bubble okay but every hand just to hold up the entire table no lol!

...meanwhile back here in the real world, gl😎👍

yeah , pokerstars in california would jumpstart the online game again in the US . but my real gripe is the rake some sites now take ( BOL collects more than 10% to run 'fast' double or nothing and turbo sngs !).

This is a fantasy of mine that I believe can happen in the near time future hopefully. I would love this because in Bolivia there are no casinos.

Eu adoraria poder ver a mesma pessoa distribuindo as cartas, não um robô distribuindo as cartas, mas uma pessoa real
If you want that, then go to the live ué! 🤔

so you want fewer hands dealt per hour / per blind level?

imagine playing an mtt and only seeing 3 hand per 10 minute blinds because the table has to wait for the live dealer.

I wish Pokerstars offered staking for MTT's the way GG poker does. I also like to see more MTT's with 10+ min blind levels. 180 player SnG's and more SnG's in general with 10 min blind levels. Pokerstars open to the US market again. Having all throwable crap and any like so that you can turn it off in the settings. Pokerstars support back to being an good, easy and fast as it use to be back in the day.

Cheers!!!

I don't know, I'm pretty happy with everything, but maybe I would add a voice message function to the chat between players. It would be cool to use them between your friends while playing poker, or just to discuss and comment on a hand at the same time.

I would love it to be a lot more transparent as I do not trust it online like I do live. Superusers are and have always been my biggest concern especially since nobody has ever been properly punished for being caught. The sites usually just blame an employee and say they have now left and that it all magically just went away and nobody does it anymore.
