How do you limit your misclicks?

Postby ManilaBoy » Sat Dec 27, 2008 4:26 am

I'm so bummed about my major flaw on my online poker game, and that is misclicks, yup I kept experiencing misclicks. I was the chip leader of a 4000 MTT and 200 people left, I mistakenly called an all in bet my another player who's chip is almost as big as mine and I lost it, he had KK and I had J4 offsuit, darn.

Then it happened again I was playing PLO and I didn't mean to call the bet of the other player and that cost me $40, that is what I can only remember, it just happens a lot to me, I dont know what to do. I only remember one time I won a misclick, I had 25 offsuit and the other guy had Aces, he flopped an Ace for his trips but I rivered him with my wheel straight, I won $27 there.

Hey guys, how do you limit your misclicks?

I often try to focus on the game and always try to take some time before clicking the button

You can give yourself a solid count of 1,2,3 before you make an action? (even 1,2 - just some pause of any kind will help you limit misclicks)

well for me....misclicks use to happen in 2 ways...

1. windows overlap...and because whenever action is needed on a table...it pops up straight and thus u accidentally misclick a certain command when the window u dont wan pops up juz in time

2. u wanna click on the "check", "fold" or "check/fold" box when suddenly the action comes to u and u do a misclick...

well for 1...its simple...tile ur windows...if u are relli multitabling more than 4 tables...u might wanna invest in a gd widescreen so that all the small cards dont put u on auto tilt...haaa

as for 2, juz make sure u dont use the check boxes when the action is close to u....is u wanna use them...make sure the action is at least 2 seats away...

yupp....thats how i prevent my misclicks frm happening...they can be simple...but v expensive mistakes...hope this helps..

Chill~

Click-HOLD then let go.

Click-Holding allow u to see the button being click w/o actually confirming the click. Once u see the button go down (and it's the button u want) then let go of the mouse click.

I do that alot in tourney when deciding to fold or call...
