It's bad for your back, admitted, but that's not essential - staring at that small screen for hours is bound to make you blind in a few years anyway.
The wireless network is great for online poker, except for one small detail: it's like an elevator. It goes down.
In my case about twice an hour. This problem in itself is no actual problem. It's a great way to exercise your patience - an important tool in the poker player arsenal etc.
No, what annoys me is the really weird behavior of the Party Poker client in these cases. Each time my wireless internet goes down, Party Poker opens up a web browser.
What's the point in opening a web browser when the internet goes down?! When I end a session at Party Poker, there are usually five or six browser windows telling me "the page cannot be found."
What sick logic hides behind this? Next time I bust out from a tournament, I bet Party Poker will treat me with a blinking congratulations graphic. Following this logic, if I lose my entire bankroll, are they going to send me an electronic invoice or what?
Or if I flop bottom set, I'm sure they'll have someone else flop top set.
Hey, wait a minute now...
Okay, yes, I'm being silly. Just had to let off some steam.
In fact, Party Poker has improved quite a bit in the last years. The improved lobby, the re-sizable tables, the cash game waiting list.
The waiting list at Party Poker is, in fact, arguably the best on the internet. Kudos for that.
