Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

In the last few months, I have noticed around 6-7 times that some SNGs randomly do not open. I always realize this either when I am starting or ending a session when I check the "registered in tournaments" tab. This happened today again, and I opened the table that hadn't opened automatically, and was down to 60 chips.

I am worried that since I have caught it 6-7 times, it is very possible and likely that it has happened more times than that. The software I use is Holdem Manager and Table Ninja FT.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Re: Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

This just happened to me. I registered (as the first player) for two heads-up SNGs, and neither opened automatically when an opponent sat. I also use Hold'em Manager, but I've never had this problem before today.

Re: Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

I have an issue where they open, but they are minimized into the task-bar, effectively hiding. It's really tilting and I have timed out of a full sng because of this before.

This happend to me today with a super turbo matrix. This is the first time the tables didnt open at the start of a tourney. I emailed full tilt because i expect a refund for this.

Re: Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

i had this happen a bunch tonight. also seems like when a SNG would load up, it would cause things to freeze/run much more slowly than normal.

Re: Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

This happens to me a lot, I usually join a game and wait for it to pop up while browsing online but sometimes it won't pop up and I realize games already filled...check "registered in tournaments" and realize I'm getting blinded out in a game. WTFFFF

Re: Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

do these tournaments not count towards your max 16 or something?

No idea, but I only notice when I have fewer tables running as I'm starting or ending the session. It makes me cringe thinking of how many times it's happened when I've been playing my maximum number of tables (around 12)

I did receive a refund for the 7.50 super turbo matrix that did not open up upon start. After investigation they did conclude that there were connection problems on their end.

Re: Random SNGs not opening on Full Tilt

happens all the time. i've seen FTPdoug recommend not closing the tournament lobby after you register to help avoid the problem

edit: fyi also happens in mtt's when getting moved to a new table
