Now, this is some unfortunate timing. A couple years back when I was with my previous ISP their connection errors was part of my everyday routine - when the line disconnected I went out for a cigarette or washing dishes then went back and everything was working fine again. Even tough my chipcounts suffered greatly from these missing 20 minutes almost every day I still managed to pay my internet bills from the money I won on cardgames. Nowadays I have good connection yet I am less willing to sit hours just playing poker. Nothings is perfect.

haha mate this happens to me all the time and sometimes it pisses me off and i play well for the next few games, but i learn now what to do, when there is problem with internet connection, software or any other things, then i take a break and do not lay as this is receipt for failure, anyway good luck at the tables hope you do not get those bad things, but it happens so dealing with it in the positive way as you did is the way to go!

I hate when that happens. You wait to play a game and it is that time when the problems start. I am experiencing internet troubles myself the last ten days, said they were gonna fix it in two days, and i am sill waiting...
This rarely happens to me, but when it does I set my phone up as a wifi hotspot. That way I can use my 4G connection, even when my ISP is down. Works just fine.
People that have regular connection problems are exploitable, for stealing blinds of course, but also playing slow in big pots, and then min bet the river, just before time runs out (he just might disconnect during this time), or straight away if he already got disconnected (timed out on turn).

Wow that is very tuff indeed. Starting out with AK in the blind is something I really like. But I am having the same problems at the moment, because two thirds of the month have passed and I have used up all of my inclusive volume.
