      I mainly had smaller lags when playing in really big tournaments, like the 2 cent 990 people SNG or so. I guess if you play 4 tables simultaneously it also quadruples the chance to experience lags. Also check your own internet connection, i once had a very bad lagging and turned out i forgot to close my bitTorrent client (doh!). Other than that good luck with the support, but i don't think they can do much. From my experience it either lags for everyone (and then they hopefully improve stuff soon!) or it's a problem on your end (ISP, computer, antivirus or whatever).

      **Update**

      Sorry should of done some of this on Wednesday :rolleyes:

      Had a reply back from PokerStars within an hour of me sending my email :f_thumbsup:
      I had to send them zip file of my connection test.
      Had another email from them the next day telling me it is my connection that is the problem :facepalm: & that I need to contact my ISP which I did, they confirmed that my modem was due a software update within the next 24hrs.

      Anyway, it looks like we are good to play I've only played for an hour tonight & I haven't had any lagging so far, I was only playing on 2 tables with HM2 (I'm feeling tired)

      PS I seem to be running good as well
