      Hi! I just started playing at PP with the 50$ capital from PS but I find there are some things PP doesn't have that annoys me alot!

      They don't have hand statistics (flops seen, pots won @ showdown etc...)

      You can't show bluffs

      You can't select seat position

      Their lowest SnG's are 3$ buy in's, which don't work with the strategy on ps... (having 50BI thingy)

      You can't see the important tourney info, like blind or prize structure

      No short handed tables in NL10 (and not others either I think...)


      These are just things from the top of my head... I could be wrong about some of them (don't think so though).

      hi;
      i may help you with few things ;)

      1. they have but i cant remember where it is :P (btw; download PokerTracker - 30days trial for free)

      2. you can show bluffs: just cancel "Muck loosing/uncalled hands" (down left on table screen)

      3. that's true...

      4. they have $1 SNGs but only turbo (no idea whats diff between turbo & speed on PP)

      5. just click on "Tourney Lobby" from main lobby ;)

      6. yea, 1st SH is 0,10/0,25

      Excellent info guys! Thanks a bunch!

      Remembered another one, PP only has a beta on MAC, you can only play it in your internet browser but that isn't working out too well for me... I played for the first time on PP on my macbook and twice in one hour the browser crashed in the middle of a hand and after that I gave up and went back to my PC.


      EDIT: I can't find the tourney lobby thingy... Just tournament info at the bottom but the info there is crap...

      SnG don't have lobbys as mucvh as I know (I don't play SnG). However Tourney should have them.

      Have you tried installing WinXP (oer any other) with Parallels? I myself use Linux with VMware and it's way better than using Wine or the browser trash. :)

      turbo SNGs have 2min blind levels and speed SNGs have 5 min levels (I think)... or something like that.. turbo is just faster

      How about the prize structure? I know first place pays 12$, and third pays 4 point something...

      I don't understand the deal with the 1$ SnG's at PP... they're never available for registration... Always a few ongoing but never any you can register to... Really annoying

      EDIT: JESUS this is retarded... I'm trying to get into a 1$ SnG but as soon as one is up for registration it gets filled in about 2 seconds... So you need super fast hands, which is really really intensely stupid.
