When I am looking for a SNG to play in, I always go to click on one that i want and it jumps to a different one. Connection issue, refresh rate? I dont know. Does anyone else experience same thing? Also I don't think it is my connection because its good. not a big deal really i just have to scroll down with arrow keys and click it really fast before it moves.

I have had this problem myself, and have ended up in the wrong tournament because of it.

This is not a software or broadband problem as such but appears to be caused by the program not being able to hold a tourney/sng in the same place for any length of time due to the refresh rate of tables.

The way I have dealt with it is to use the table filter options to exclude as many options as possible e.g. currencies or game formats you would never play.

This seems to lessen the problem and as PSO Support pointed out to me there is always the double confirmation for tourney entry as a failsafe.

Hope this helps.

SnGs open and close so fast the list changes before the click is registered I believe. My solution was to use the filters (bottom left of the lobby) to restrict the games and buy-ins so the list isn't so active.

You can also attempt to register from the main pokerstars lobby, rather than the tournament lobby, so that you only have to single click.
Just be sure when the small "payment" box appears, you are entering the correct tournament.

Havent had this issue but you can filter every thing out if its a buy in issue.
just adjust your min. and max. of entrants and then do the same for buy in.

One thing I noticed playing STTs is that if you click register for similar tournament it doesnt always take you to the next tourney with the most players registered.

I find a lot of my issues are different form pc users and I address most my mac issues on 2p2 to a mod that appears once every purple moon!
