The lobby contains the lists of players, games and tournaments, enabling you to navigate to the location of your choice. It also contains links to the Poker Cashier, Help and Contact information.

The lobby can display a wide range of information, easily selected by clicking on the tabs across the top of the screen. Within each list, you can sort the information alphabetically or numerically by clicking on the heading of any column. For example, in the Players List, clicking on the head of the "Names" column will sort the list by Player's Name alphabetically. Clicking again will re-sort the list in reverse alphabetical order. The tabs access the following lists:
The list of players currently logged on; their name; their status (eg watching, in lobby, playing etc) and their location. You can use the player search tool to look for your buddies by ticking the "buddies" checkbox.
