I hated pkr, Like you mentioned the play was so slow.. I found it very tedious and once the novelty of the emotes ran out it just became straight up irritating imo
Spot on lol, I remember trying desperately to play PKR because it looked revolutionary, it was a pain in the butt to setup as had a graphic card requirement or something like that, it really wasn't a good experience, I remember it used to be on the poker channel on sky here in the UK a lot and it looked so cool but sadly it was just a gimmick.
Back from a 3 year hiatus, poker terminology is rusty, bare with!
Oh, I will never forget PKR. I loved to play there at this time. It was funny and sociable room. I still wonder often, who was playing there and who is also a member of Cardschat. And with what nickname you were playing there?
I was even using at this time my usual nickname: SchnurrHaar
What was your nickname there?

I loved PKR, but the main reason for that was the players. It reminded me of 888. Soft field and a lot of recreational players. Probably the pomp around the 3D kept serious multi-tablers away. But the tourneys were great, soft and profitable.
I had a PC that could handle the 3D so I was golden, but these days probably most machines can handle it. If/when it is relaunched, I assume they will keep the grafix to a level that most machines can handle if they want to get back in the market. But I also assume the soft field will be gone, thus my motivation to play there may not return......

Play was far too slow. I can't even be doing with the speed of party poker. It was only good for having a laugh with now and then. I used to like the odd things like the Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and "show me your cards". They destroyed it moving to MPN forcing name changes losing track of buddies and losing the avatar I had created when it first started. I'm over it now. I would only go back if it was all freerolls. But, and this is the big one, online poker has been in decline now for a long time and it's not going to ever get back to where it used to be. At some point there will only be one or two trusted platforms left.
I can't live without PKR :'( (o.O) (-_-)
Yes, I also liked this video game :-) I left nice money there sometimes but it's okay. That is the No.1 if we see the 3D poker platforms. The Pokerstars simulation poker is different like the PKR was ever.
