Fixing Lag

Getting rid of lag continues to the biggest feature request we have. We had fixed a couple bugs that cause lag in May and have been continuing to collect information on new bugs that cause lag. If you've bumped into lag please send me an email ([email protected]) with a description of the hand that you had lag in. This information is super helpful in identifying bugs that cause lag. Thanks for the help!

Page clean up

The bottom of the main page was starting to get out of date and confusing. We've cleaned this up by removing old links and highlighting new ones. Let us know if you'd like to see more changes like this.

Bug fixes

There are two notable bug fixes this month. First, those long error messages shown when you try to follow someone are now showing readable messages so now you know what's actually happening. Second, there was a bug in the mobile version of gpokr where you couldn't click on the checkboxes at the bottom to fold/check/call. Thats fixed now too! Let us know if there are any other bugs you'd like to see fixed.

Player of the Month Spotlight

MJT Is our Player of the Month Spotlight for July!

MJT came to GPokr in 2008 through a family member who thought she would like it, and she did. She is from the Netherlands, and loves her career as a Hospice Nurse. GPokr takes her away from the stresses of the job. She also loves to sew, and makes handbags in her spare time. (she has extras if anyone needs one!)

MJT says there are several players she enjoys playing with, two of them are Insane and Two Pines. When asked what she would change about GPokr, she said she would like to see some sort of fix for bad language in the chat. "Let it be a nice site for playing, it's just for fun." When she sees players getting mad about losing chips, she has to laugh. "They are silly to get mad on a game!"

Many thanks to MJT for being so dedicated, and for being an awesome GPokr player! Good luck at the tables!

Tip of the Month

In order to succeed in holdem, you need to keep your cool. Never let the acts of other players get to you. So your opponent hit his three-outer on the river - it happens. If bad players never managed to suck out they wouldn't play at all. Some players also use trash talk as part of their strategy in an attempt to get you off balance. If things that happen at the table start to affect you, it's time to take a break.
