We know many of you use 3rd Party Software.

Instead of player's experiencing trouble with these software, we're working to build the most useful features into our software. We know players enjoy the following:

1. Displaying bets, pots, and stacks in terms of # of big blinds instead of money or chips.
2. Managing large numbers of tables.
3. Displaying statistics on opponent's play.

We will be releasing #1 on April 1st.

What other key features do you accomplish by using 3rd party software and you'd love to have available in the client?

1. Chips to BB.
2. Table bets and pot text size and font readability is very low. Especially relation between table and font sizes: I have to keep tables smaller in order to increase text size.
3. Customizable betting buttons. Set bet size by: % of pot, number of BBs, multiplication of previous bet/raise.
4. Hotkeys: Fix Scroll lagging when multitabling.
Add options for custom hotkeys.
Hotkey for "chips to BB" ON/OFF
5. Table configuration: save custom profiles + assign hotkeys.
6. Add more table backgrounds, felts, cards backs with plain muted colors.
7. Sound settings: separate volume control for each event, ability to use custom sound files.

I think of system realized on PokerStars:
To have several predefined modes plus ability to save any current configuration.
Then user may select from dropdown list at the table to apply that custom configuration when needed.
Actually I thought, that at Pokerstars you have the ability to assign hotkeys to those layouts but it seems I was mistaken. But anyway it would be a positive addition in my opinion.
I hope it clarifies.

I'll just list things that haven't been mentioned:
1. Improve notes, make the box/font readable, maybe make it a popup so it doesn't have the size constraint of the bottom left corner of the table.
2. More colors for tagging players.
3. Address waitlist issues, often times I will get the alert that my seat is available and the table automatically shuts down before I can take my seat and other times I never even get the alert and I check the table and I'm no longer on the waitlist.

+1000000 for fixing waitlist issues. It's so frustrating to wait for a long time for a game and then get booted back to the end of the list due to a bug.

fix the behavior of the buyin box - It's very hard to top up your chips without deliberately stalling when it's your action. If you try to open the buyin dialogue and the action gets to you, it auto closes. At the very least make "ENTER" click the button so we can buy in more quickly

Please stop slowrolling us at showdown.

The problem:
When showing down a hand, if an opponent has AUTOMUCK=OFF, a 5s timedown on their part will indicate a scoop - from the loser's perspective, they're looking at the SHOW/MUCK buttons.

ACR uses this same animation when it's lagging, so oftentimes, it will look like you've won the pot, but the software then stalls out and flips the opponents cards, revealing that you were scooped.

This is the online equivalent of getting slowrolled by a caller who clucks their tongue and taps the table with their facedown hand before dramatically flipping a winner and pissing you off.

the solution:
PLEASE MAKE THESE TWO BEHAVIORS DISPLAY DIFFERENTLY IN THE CLIENT.
