      what is going on on 888poker.

      why did they limited us to play on max 8 tables at a time?

      you can't join waiting list on other tables if you have 8 tables opened.

      what a stupid joke!

      good luck!

      I HATE THIS...

      I usually play 12-15 tables full ring (sometimes more, but never more than 21)

      I guess I have to find something else to do with all the spare time in between hands, like b*tching about it on Pokerstrat (ckeck!)... hrmmm, still not satisfied. 8-tabling and writing on PS, still bored out of my skull...

      Wait, I still have a few $$ left on my Pokerstars, just enough to open 4 tables. Well, at least that fills up my left monitor... That takes care of my left eye. Now I just have to find some activity for my right eye.. Ahh, just lost a flip op Pokerstars, so now I have a...

      :club: BIG GAPING BLUE HOLE :club:

      ...on my left screen (and in my soul)... hmmm... Actually, I am running pretty good on my 888 tables. As a matter of fact...

      :club: I AM BATHING IN AN OCEAN OF TIME :club:

      ...so now I'm able to put some real thought in proper bet sizing, and.. as seconds slowly pass me by I am actually contemplating about my opponents range, I'm playing more hands, showing a lot more aggression, squeeeeeezing that very... last... drop... of ultra thin value out of...

      :club: THAT SWEET SOUR ORANGE THEY CALL POKER :club:

      ...and, I'm up on all 8 tables... Is this the moment I have been waiting for? Has 888, by limiting the maximum number of tables, shown me how to be a competent killer shark poker player instead of a mindless multitabling grinder.

      My bb/100 will sky rocket and as a result life will change considerably with this new found super ability - with great power comes great responsibility....

      :club: NAHH... I STILL HATE THE FACT THAT I CAN'T PLAY MORE TABLES :club:

      I'm just gonna go grind it out on Party, PS and Titan...

      peace out / cherish the love :heart:

      it is something new, just from today.

      here is an answer on their forum:

      Emailed Sean guys and he (very quickly) replied to me. He would like this official reply to be posted here:

      "Our decision to limit the amount of concurrent tables per player has only one beneficiary – the game of poker itself.

      We strive to provide an environment that encourages player interaction and enjoyable poker game play for all players."

      Thanks for reply.

      LOL :) ))

      I JUST switched from stars to 888, the only other poker site I can tolerate aside from stars. It looks like I'm gonna have to go BACK to stars at the end of this month. Stupid 888, had to go and ruin something good. They're so dumb...

      ongame, 888poker, ipoker all those rooms, skins are oriented to recreational players. Don't expect to much professional attitude in poker from them. ongame dont have waitlist, 888 max 8 tables, all that is to avoid to much grinders.

      I dont play at 888 but it sounds like a lot of regulars will be changing sites, that cant be all bad right? Less solid players, but no change to the number of fish id assume.. What is traffic like on 888 at micro NL?

      Confirm, after 8 table you aren't allowed to open more table.

      I thought was something I did wrong with the setting and I was going crazy as I wasn't understand why, I even contact their support to ask for help but of course never was reply from them.

      Thank you for posting at least I know now that it wasn't me.

      Can we all just play stars and party and admit that they are not rigged and unbeatable regs?

      you can join more than 8 tables on waiting list by closing the ones on wich you are already sitting on the waiting list and opening new ones to join waiting list.

      hope you understand what i said, if not post a question and i will try to answer you.

      the problem is that if you have the max number of tables opened on your screen (wich is 8) and it is your turn from the waiting list to sit at a table wich is closed and not on your screen you won't be able to join that table.

      you have to close a table from the 8 that are already on your screen before click-ing on take my seat.

      the max number of tables that you can have on the screen are only 8 no matter what you do.

      using the method described here you cand join waiting list on more than 8 tables (for example 14 tables or more).

      good luck!

      I think it's not THAT bad idea. Mass multi tablers going to leave, but the fish/good player ratio will improve and if you think about it, the average hands/hour should go up by a bit too, because generally mass multitablers are slowing the tables down by a LOT.

      Altough I admit that they should take into account the difference between FR/SH/HU tables, and make individual limitations accordingly.
