Forced to use the new client now Flash is gone., I expected it to be hard to set, but I found it rather buggy.


I was a teaching with 4 students (not playing), and the following happened:

I couldn't UNDO, on the flash client you could force undo, sometimes undoing several tricks to explain how the play should had gone, now it is impossible.

I couldn't claim!. On the flash client I could claim, now there is a claim button that lets you select a number of tricks, but it does nothing.... nothing except BLOCKING the readeal button on the menu, which goes forever and doens't come back, freezing the table unless a player claims. If the play is finished after teacher tries to claim but without any cliam, the table is frozen forever and the only way to continue is to go back and start a new table.

I had the same problem. A friend and I were using the teaching table to go through some hands that we had trouble with.

I opened the table and we started playing. Strangely, although I was unable to 'undo' bids or tricks played, he had no trouble.

It seems to be an object-oriented bug. The end that the frass comes out of is always pointing at me. I think this particular bug is magnetic.

The claim button works fine for me.

Maybe the claim button works because you were sitting at the table?

I had 4 students sitting, I was only hosting/kibitzing

True, I haven't tried that, my problem is that when I am sitting at the table, the undo function only works for people I invite, and not for me. The claim button works for both of us.

I'm trying to learn something new so I set up a teaching table in Prime.
I'm sitting South and North.
The claim button works fine, but when I make a bid that I want to undo a message appears saying 'undo accepted' and then goes straight back to the point before the undo was accepted.
It's like reaching out for something that just keeps moving away when you grab at it.
