I've got a recurring complaint Gio, although, i agree that the the cash game play per se has been flawless for a while now.
1. The hand replay/history available from a link in the game window does not show hole cards, which makes it pretty much useless.
When you have tried to fix this before you ended up showing the hole cards of everyone, even those who did not stay for a showdown. This is better in my view than not showing any hole cards. Of course, the standard in the industry is to show me my hole cards and the hole cards of all players staying for the showdown, regardless of who won and regardless of the order of showing.
Also, i do not like the presentation of the replay window. You show each hand history in terms of the player actions on flop, turn and river. While this is a logical progression, I rarely want to study a hand that closely. I just want to see, in a glance
(a)the hole cards and (b)the 5 board cards . The less distance my eyes have to travel between between a and b the better. The way it is now I have to page up and down to compare the hole cards to the 5 board cards of the river. My preferred solution in the current format, in order of preferencewould be (1) Move the five river cards to the top and show the turn and flop actions in reverse order (this way i do not have to page down to get the only information i want most of the time (2) deleted the action for the flop and turn altogether, since i rarely care to study the hand that closely (3) Move the hole cards to the bottom of the window, this means i have to page down but at least i can see both the hole cards and the 5 board cards at once.
2. There is no way to view next or previous hands from the browser window that comes up when go to history from the game window. This means that to view a number of hands history you have to click from the game window for each hand, bringing up a separate browser window for the replay of each hand.
Considering how long you have been working on this problem, if your programmer can't seem to fix this, may be you need a better programmer.
The basic format is not bad, but the most effective one glance last hand graphic in my opinion, was the format used at everleaf. The reason is that the hole cards were displayed relative to the player position at the table. This means i don't have to remember the name of the opponent(s) at showdown, just their position at the table.
