Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Please make the bet buttons on the new felt bigger! They are 1/3-1/2 the size of the bet buttons on the old felt.

The Post Flop preset bet buttons don't kick in in limped pots. It's "post flop" but they don't appear.

Unrealistic request -- please give the option to disable the "pre-bet" buttons when it's not your turn to act. They are distracting and in my opinion not useful for anyone other than Phil Helmuth.

Re: Please add these suggestions of mine to the site

RIP old felt.

New felt is garbage. Haven’t seen one player say that they like it. Complaints just off the top of my head

-Tile tables button is in lobby instead of on table
-Bet slider is pretty ugly
-Animations are bad

Only positive thing I can say about it is the “sit out next bb” option. I do think it is weird that this is found by clicking on player name instead of in settings, but w/e

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Even when messing with all the options and trying to streamline the new felt it is slower then the old felt. I have low power mode or whatever selected and it still shows the antes being taken from everyones stack just painfully slow. Also if for whatever reason you dc or the site crashes when it comes back and the tables reopen the tilebutton in the lobby no longer works. Have to close out the page and reloggin again to fix

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

The check/fold button for the big blind actually works now. Meaning, it holds your click regardless of any further preflop action. This helps a lot, imho.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Do the custom bet size buttons work when playing on a tablet? I see the option for "Custom Preset Bet Values" in my settings menu but nothing happens when I click on it.

I had trouble on iOS, and I just checked using Safari on iPhone and I was not able to access the custom setting. The site remembers your player notes across platforms, but not your in game preferences.

I play on PC using Chrome with no problems.

I don't know of a workaround for this, maybe a different browser?

Strongly agree. Worst thing for me is, when multi tabling, the all-in button is very far from the bet button, so I'm not able to see my chip stack as I click the all-in button. Makes hyper turbos much slower.

Does anyone know the benefits of the power saving mode feature on the new felt? I've tried on and off and there appears to be no difference.

Thanks

I always turn it on, but to be honest I don't know if I have ever noticed a difference ha.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

For cash games - I'd sort of like to see a table that has blinds plus an ante. I think it would make far far looser, and thus more fun games. Might have to adjust the rake down a bit, but I think it would be more profitable for global due to more frequent and larger pots and more fun for players.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

What is the difference in the 'new' felt? I just redeposited after like 6+ months away and I don't have any idea what is new on the update that has people making comments.

The new positive updates are customizable bet slider(still too limited), “sit out next bb” option(which we kind of already had except u couldn’t specify bb it was just “blinds”). That’s all I can think of, everything else is worse.

Also very dumb that you have to click your username to sit out next bb.

Yeah that’s unintuitive. There’s nothing to indicate it’s even Smth you can interact with. I’ve seen multiple people ask in chat how to sit out.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

Definitely agree that the new felt is awful. The table sizing is so out of whack. The old tables were solid no idea why they needed to change them.

Couple of suggestions:
-Stack by BB instead of chip amount.
-customizable bet slider for pre-flop and post flop.
-tile table to be on the table not the lobby.

Re: Global Poker Improvement Thread

BTW I have been having an issue with Global randomly logging me out and my tables disappearing. I have to click back to the browser and log back in. yesterday this must have happened 10 times. I have cleared the cashe, tried 3 different browsers, and restarted my computer all to no avail.

Are others having this issue with Global randomly logging out? Any one found a solution that seems to work for them?

Thanks in advance.

I find that this happens when I open sit and am not actually playing any hands. I think the time limit is ~30 minutes and then it auto logs you out. Doesn't matter if you are seated at a table or just observing, you have to be playing hands. I haven't found a fix unfortunately.

I encounter this when playing on my old laptop out in the garage and have twoplustwo forum open. It hasn't happened on my new laptop which is faster and has a wired connection.

Ensure that the window showing the GP main page is active, meaning it is the front page of whatever browser you are using. When in "pro" mode with each table in its own window, the home page needs to stay active for the site to know you are playing. This is just my guess, and keeping the page actively viewable has prevented this logout problem from happening.

Also, even with this measure, the site will log me out after some very long time like 8 hours or so. No big deal, just log back in and all tables reappear.
