Neither of those are an issue at Faded Spade.

Browser based, no desktop application to use. People are playing on tablets and different browser and OS combinations.

We are paying for the reserved table.

Stars is wonderful, and we are still using it for tournaments. But play money games is not their bread and butter. Totally willing to pay for a service that fits our needs better and wants to keep us engaged and satisfied.
We have also been using Faded Spade, and have been pretty happy with it. Don't have to worry about the rake, you can set the max/min buyin and blinds to whatever you like independent of each other, has a straddle button, stats and downloadable hand history and allows you your own logo for table. Overall it does what we need it to do, and is worth the $20-$25 /month that the host pays (players are happy to chip in a buck or two to help cover it ). They offer mixed games now, including 5 card PLO/PLO8 which is also nice.

Re: Online room for private game?

We've been using Stars' play money tournaments. We set up a season of 10 games, playing every 2 weeks. 3-4 days after the first tourney finished, there was no update on my club. The day before the 2nd tournament, they updated with the result. We've now played 6 tourneys (i.e. for over 12 weeks) and there's still only one tournament visible in results/standings. Just before our 4th tournament I asked them to update again, 5 days later they responded that they have high volume of support request but that I would hear from them soon. That was a month ago.

Also, you can only choose fast cash games. We play private $.25/.50 games and the rake is not great. Same as regular stars cash games though, which I find too expensive.

We do get hand history, but even when players show they don't always appear. Some times it help replaying the hand, then you can see the cards they show. Sometimes you see the cards starting to turn, but since it's so fast, the next hand starts before the animation can show them. Finally, for cash games, several people try to raise pf but are folded before they can hit the button. All in all we won't use Stars after this season is done.

Re: Online room for private game?

We have been using the Faded Spade now for 3 weeks. It's working great with 30 seconds to act on each hand vs. the 10-15 seconds of the PokerStars play money game.

Has anyone been using a HUD on Faded Spade? I'm also interested in buying a software program with a handplayer/analyzer. Any recs that I might be able to use with Faded Spade?

Thanks,
MD

None that I know of.

I have written a converter that takes hand history from Faded Spade (which is powered by Poker Mavens) and converts to the OHH format specified by PokerTracker.

But I do not use PokerTracker myself so I have not tested this.

I have inquired with the PokerTracker support team about testing it but they seem lukewarm on it.

I'll write back to them today.

Re: Online room for private game?

Hey all -

Jumping in here to introduce a new way play poker online with friends, an app I've been building for the past few months, and we're just getting started.

https://playonclubs.com

We're in a private beta right now, and looking for more beta testers. If you play in a home game on Pokerstars, PokerNow, Donkhouse, etc. I highly recommend checking us out. We'd love your feedback.

Feel free to PM me as well.

Site looks great - just hold em? We’ve been really happy with faded spade’s
Mixed games, that’s been a great feature.

Appreciate it. Just hold'em right now (have to start somewhere), but adding more games as we go. PLO4, PLO5, and rotation are up next. If you sign up for the beta, I'll keep you updated when we add new game types.

Faded Spade definitely has a nice array of game types, but the software doesn't compare. Hoping to eclipse them soon.
