Numerous players have reported an auto fold problem at online poker room PokerRoom.com. This involves the automatic folding of a player’s hand with no time delay. This occurs in all kinds of games, whether ring or tournament and on both the download and Java version. When this occurs, what typically happens is a player raises, is then re-raised by another player, and within a split second the hand is folded without the player pressing any function keys. One player wrote he first noticed this approximately 4 months ago, and has complained via e-mail and on PokerRoom’s own forum, and is disturbed that not only has it not been fixed, PokerRoom.com management have not acknowledged the problem, nor have they taken steps to inform players about this glitch.
