On #3, are you not being properly seated in your preferred seat or is your HUD not recognizing what seat you're in? If it's the former this definitely needs to be addressed by us, if it's the latter it's probably something for the PT/HEM team to look at, although if there is something in the HH files that they need I'd be happy to pass that along.

The in game hand history is just too cumbersome and not a very good concept. I can tell a lot of work went into making raw HH's easier to read, but anyone looking at a last hand in game knows how read a raw history faster than horizontally and vertically scanning the pre, flop, turn, and river matrix. I know there is a raw history option, but it doesn't include stack sizes and is also impossible to navigate (the scroll bar works ~20% of the time, and hh's can't be copied to send to friends.) In a perfect world the in-game HH function would be similar to stars; a visual replay with multiple speeds and functions, and a small box with the raw hh and a click to expand button.

Regarding #3, It is a little bit of both. I need to do a little more research and I'm probably doing something wrong with my settings. I'll come back tomorrow and follow up.


New gripes:

I want to cosign the "min cash being less than the buyin" issue in mtts. Think about how much this would tilt you back in your tourney heyday. Has there been any timeline given on this issue? I remember you mentioning it in another (maybe this) thread.

Auto add-on button, PLEASE!!!

MTT schedule feels like it is missing a lot of spots. Mtts are all about getting in volume, and I really feel like the player base would respond well to bigger daily prize pools and more guaranteed tournaments. I feel like merge could be starting an $11 7k and a $22 8k alternating every 20 minutes and they would hit every time.

I am really, really starting to love **** poker. I feel like aside from what I've mentioned the software is phenomenal for a non stars / ft room, the games are juicy, and it has an awesome small room feel to it.

TL;DR -

Stop paying so many spots in mtts that the player doesn't even return what he put in. Tourneys are a cruel beast and I don't want to win a diluted 1st place if I ever do make a final table.

Implement an auto add-on button.

More, and bigger guaranteed pools.

Accept new US customers!!!

Thanks for the extra feedback. I'm not sure if this helps you or not, but if you go to the 'STATS' page or go to http://admin.lockpoker.eu (both are the same place, but going there manually will make you log in) there is a navigation option called 'replay' across the top. if you put the hand # in there is a visual replayer very comparable to the stars one. It sucks that it's outside of the client but we built it externally precisely so you could get a visual hand history and send it to your friends. There are 1 click links to share via facebook and twitter there too.

We're working on some upgrades to it to make it easier to use (auto-loading most recent hands, etc). It's far from an ideal solution since it's not within the client itself, but you might find it useful.

Re: Lock Poker Suggestion Box

Just happened again. PLEASE FIX THIS! Why does late registration extend past the rebuy / add-on period? Guess it's my fault this time for regging the 3r with 7 mins left in late reg, but wtf merge?

Unta, I've never had an issue with the HUD on HM. Are you setting it to the correct seat? Can you get it on one and then add more tables?

If it does not match ever, export the hud, then delete any file in c:\rvg\holdemmanager\config folder with prefs in it - prefs, posprefs, any backups.

Restart HM, import the HUD you backed up if it's not there.

Go into the seating options, set your preferred seat.

Start one table and see if it lines up. If it does, add another table and see what happens. If it doesn't work on tables, PM me.

Re: Lock Poker Suggestion Box

fix the tourny structures so they are more similar to full tilt and pstars when it comes to end game. I'm not a fan of 10-20bb final table play for the majority of the table. I mean you are lucky if you have 40bbs at a final table in the low stake and mid-stake mtts. Its a joke and any fish can win a tourny on merge if they run well enough. Also add more 2R+1As or 1R+1As like stars had. Also the mtt schedule sucks and needs way more tournys with more gtns. I would like to see $10+1 and 20+2 superstacks with gtns kinda like full tilt had. While i like merge, they dont run enough tournys to keep pace with the action i like. I'm lucky if i can 6 table over 2 hrs because they dont offer enough mtts.

Can you please include the game type and buy-in in the table window frame? I found myself in PLO8 and PLO sng's earlier and no easy way of knowing which game I was playing on which table.

It seems to me that in a lot of ways the software is designed with multitablers in mind (the mini view, the grid mode etc) which is excellent but minor issues like the one I mentioned make it a lot harder than it needs to be. That, and the ridiculous amount of pop ups (registered, starting, congratulations, summary) which is by far the most annoying thing for me. All I need is one pop up at the end that tells me where I finished, how much I won and checkboxes for "registering for another?" and "close completed tournament?"

I've had to turn off auto muck so that I have some indication of whether my raises/shoves are called (I stack my tables).

Re: Lock Poker Suggestion Box

This is a little nitty, but I think the way prizes are given for streakers on the sng leaderboard is pretty bad.

Having a consecutive game win streak is already very important for the LB because it is a multiplier for every sng you complete. If you have an 8 streak, you are essentially earning points twice as fast as somebody with a 4 streak with the same results. I'm cool with this--it gives a novel sort of variance to the competition, making it hard for the same people to dominate every month (though I'm sure some will find a way). However, I think the whole streaker payouts should be canned, and just assimilate those extra prizes into the leaderboard.

It seems like most grinders like myself will probably hit somewhere between a 4-6 streak on a fairly regular basis (correct me if I'm wrong guys) and it becomes exponentially harder to get 7, 8, and 9 (the leader has 10, playing $1 sngs). So this guy is getting $750 for getting 'out of this world lucky' at the micros? I just think it would be more appropriate, and good for the company, to increase the volume-based incentives.

Just one man's opinion on the matter...

I don't think the streaker bonus is a problem at all, the same names have ALWAYS been at the top the last year and a half if they put in the volume. I've never been beat by any micro player who got a lucky streak either. Obviously I wouldn't complain if they removed the streaker bonus but I think it makes things a lot more interesting. And that says alot because I would win alot easier every month without having to worry about a mid-stake reg binking a big streak.

I'm not suggesting that they remove the streaker bonus from the equation that calculates LB scores. I'm suggesting getting rid of the payouts for the streaker leaderboard, and to add that extra money in with the main leaderboard.

The guy that is in 1st place has played 120, $1 sngs. lol he might not even realize he's about to get $750 unless somebody manages to put up an 11 streak. He'll log on like 2 weeks into August and crap his pants.

I'm curious. I've only been on Lock a couple of months (and this is the first month I was even aware of the sng LB), so what is the highest streak you've ever seen?

Ah, okay I have no concerns with that suggestion it makes way more sense now. I have never seen a streak above 8 til this month.

A few months ago I got a 7 playing the 10-35s but I would assume 4-6 is pretty standard with significant volume.

Re: Lock Poker Suggestion Box

Could one of the moderators give us an estimate of when some/any of these improvements are actually expected to be implemented?
