    Multi tabling enhancements

    1. New queuing mechanism while multi tabling

    The new queuing mechanism that accompanies multi tabling means that playing 6, 8, 10 and even 16 tables simultaneously becomes much easier. The new system puts each table that requires an action into a chronological queue. When a table requires an action it will wait in line until you attend to it and will pop under your current active table. Once you perform an action on the first table from the queue, the table will be sent to the end of the line and the next table that requires an action will pop up for you to make a decision, and so on.
