      Hello everyone,

      My question maybe might seem stupid for someone, but I'm completely new to Poker Stars. I'm switching from Party Poker, and I missed one useful thing that party poker has - maybe poker stars has it too, I just don't know where to find it, do You? I am talking about "hand strength", when playing at the table. At party, there is always written at the bottom right of the table, just above the raise buttons, your current hand strength, like "ace high" or "straight - from x to y". And I found it quite useful, especially when multi-tabling, not to accidentally fold made belly busters or smth, which sometimes might be hard to spot, when you're rushing. And actually, even if you are not, it is still a nice feature for me, for double checking, so as you don't accidentally muck made flush as Ivey did ;) So anyway ... Does anyone knows what I am talking about, and whether it is possible to have this kind of thing on Poker Stars tables?

      Hello wicked.

      I believe this is only available for play money table on PokerStars, not a feature they allow for Real Money Play.

      I'll have a deeper look a little later when I'm at a computer where I can test and check, but I don't believe it's been added.

      Regards,
      Richard

      I don't think it is available but I would chime in and say that if you're playing so many tables that you're unable to see what hand you have then you're playing too many ;)

      I totally agree with that, but as I said:

      I'd suggest using 4 color deck.

      Yeh switch on 4 colour deck then flushes are easy to spot, but there have been quite a lot of times where i have folded straights for no apparent reason
