A recent issue that seems to be recurring is that at the top of every hour and for a few minutes afterward the site starts to lag so bad that it becomes unplayable (it’s cost me a good deal of chips by timing me out of winning hands I was in). It also happened during two multi-table tournaments I entered in the past couple of days (in one tournament there would sometimes be a couple of minutes pass between a hand ending and the next being dealt). At all other times the play progresses normally and smoothly.
It began around May 14th for me, or at least that’s when it became impossible to ignore. I asked other players in chat if they were experiencing the same thing and at least in the case of the tournaments they said they were. So it doesn’t appear to be an issue that exists on my end, or at least not completely on my end.
I don’t know what to do on my end other than clearing out my cache and seeing if things improve (they don’t). I posted this thread because it’s an issue that inspires me to stop playing for the rest of the day, especially when I lose a large pot I would have otherwise won thanks to timing out. I also posted it because I’m not sure if it’s entirely an issue with the site but don’t know what else to do to try to fix it.
