For me its watching players limp to sitters. Its the only play in poker that hurts all the active players at the table.
we have gone round and round on this and neither of us made any headway with the other but the
" hurts all active players" really cracks me up. that's just pure silly.
but let me explain something for those that can play only replay and pokerstars home games.
the sit-outs cant playback, they are automatically folded to any action with no raise necessary ;)

For me, the most frustrating thing about online poker is when calling stations incorporate stack by stack because they call every smallest hit all the way to the river, no matter how big the bets are. And then hit the card often enough for the second pair to hit the flush or the gutshot.

Rule 1: Don't attempt to bluff a calling station. Charge them for their draws. ez game.

The most frustrating thing about online poker...
Initially it was dealing with customer support on some of the sites I chose to play on many years ago. When talking with them I swear the support worker was flipping burgers at McD's at the same time as they were 'resolving'(?) my problem and giving me some canned answer about how it was my internet that messed up.

Then the BIGGEST frustration was Black Friday (when the U.S.A. was no longer able to play on the biggest & best sites). That changed online poker forever. :( Gone were the days of the gold rush Poker Boom.
Honestly what could be worse than that?!?!?!?!?!

Hi.
There are different situations, there are different days, but for me personally, poker is always a great opportunity to have a good time. The game always brings me pleasure and positive emotions, and I never pay attention to the temporary difficulties or failures :)

For me I love online the multiple tables it's just with the long screen time I tend to get intense migraines and there is not much I can do about it, I can't be eating painkillers like sweets

Living in a area where there is no regulated poker. Someday I hope we can have it but will it ever be. I do know this is more about the game itself, but this is what frustrates me most about online poker.

one thing that I find very annoying is the withdrawal time, depending on the option, it takes more than a week

For me it has to be the technical potholes that plague my region. I can't seem to find a decent, reliable service to STAY connected. Come on drone-servers...

when after houndreds of tournaments you can see that if they want you to win you will get 4 of a kind when you go all and if its not your day even AA before flop wont give you a winning hand.....

The possibility that games are fraud, certain kind of patterns constantly repeating.

mistakes, and the occasional bad luck on a hand, are part of the game and are of little importance in the long run: you have to know how to recognize and admit that it's boring, frustrating, it makes you angry, but it happens.

When I catch bad beats over and over again, it really disappoints me and my mood deteriorates for the whole day. :mad:

The most frustrating thing in online poker is that I can't look into the eyes of the person who takes all his chips :)

The worst thing about online poker is when I lose on the last street, when you have a premium hand and a better chance, and your opponent has a trash hand but gets 2-3 outs.
or how about when you have a good hand like QQ... vs. AK.. they hit the Ace on flop... but then you river the Q ;)
gl in the game!
