While I am for this...it's not the best feature of FTP vs PS.

The absolute best feature, and the #1 thing I'd like to have PS do is adopt FTP's variable auto-rebuy function, where you can choose exactly what your default buy-in/rebuy amounts are for both NL and Limit games. In fact, I'd like to see them go 1 step further and get an option that always brings you up to the table max. FT only reloads you if you lose an all-in.

Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

You should be able to set the "default" buy-in for whatever game and limit you want to play.

The way it is now if you're playing 8 games you have to manually set the buy-in (if you want it to be less than the maximum or the current default minimum) on every game you join, and this is a royal pain.

How about a "Show and Fold" button, where if you want, you can show your opponents that you're laying down a big hand.

Oh god yes, the one single thing that UB has that is better than other sites.

Even Prima has this, and even though i like their software its definately ghettofabulous (you cant even rebuy your stack properly in a cash game ffs) compared to the swishness of stars software.

Do you mean the pop up when its my action and the one click table activation options.

I cant do without it popping up when i play tonnes of tables because i cascade them - but the one click i could perhaps do without, ill try it on my next session but i can imagine it being frustrating having to click twice on a table just to fold a hand.

Either way, when you have a window open like the reload options thing either the next window shouldnt pop up until you have finished on that window, or it should pop up behind that window so you can see it but the uppermost focus is still the reload box.

Its frustrating, ill try a session without the one click, but whilst probably not a grade A problem i think its still a flaw in the sites usability.

Whoever said that tourneys need better info in the title bar is 100% spot on - i dont need to know what number the tourney is, i need its buy in and name (be it Sit n Go, or Million Gtd MTT, or 45k gtd rebuy etc etc).

Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

I would like to see something so you can choose to only see the stakes you want to play in thye lobby. Under the "ring game filter" please add a filter for the stakes you want to filter in or out. So under Fixed Limit Hold'em (Low) stakes there would be a filter option for $3/$6, $2/$4, $1/$2 and $0.50/$1 as well as the heads up tables. Thanks .

AUTO ADD-ON FOR TOURNEYS

The 5 minute break will start once hands are complete on all tables. Rebuys are available until then.

Browse internet and play other tables.

Blinds are going up to...

ARRGGGGGHHHH FORGOT TO ADDON.

I won't say "never" because never is a long time... but this has actually been implemented internally (about 2 years ago), tested, and then never rolled out because of the server load it creates. It just isn't workable.

The problem is that each little top-up is a database transaction in a heavily used table (cash in/out of players accounts to and from tables). During testing it was discovered that deploying this feature would saturate the database servers with so many tiny top-up transactions that the server would bottleneck -- the database indexes would grow too large to maintain.

If you have a script and are "topping up" via external means, that's fine... but its unlikely that you'll see this built into the PokerStars software as an automatic feature, as nice as it definitely would be.

Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

Here's my wishlist:
1. Option to set my default buyin for each game level;
2. Wait for BB when joining tables;
3. Don't auto minimize the main lobby when I open a table;
4. Allow multiple table selection when joining waitlists;
5. Sit out next BB;
6. Color coding of opponents;
7. Sit out all tables and I'm back for all tables buttons.
