Check the target of your chat in the small blue box to the left of the chat field.

Normally on a table the default is ->Table, which means your message will appear to everyone else at the table.

If it says ->Lobby, then it goes to the Lobby (an old concept) and it will not appear for anyone else at the table.

If it says ->Tournament, then it should appear for everyone at the tournament.

If it says ->Opponents, then it goes to your two opponents.

If it says ->paulg, then it only goes to me. You can go this by selecting Private as the Chat target and choosing a BBO username.

Of course anyone who has you on Ignore will not receive any message from you.

Messages are also not delivered if the player is playing in a tournament or you are their partner in a tournament for example.

When you first join a casual table the destination defaults to "Kibitzers". Change it to "Table" so the players will see it.
