what i found is that even with hm2 closed new sngs are taking focus. I have been testing on 1.5$ fifty50 . however it didnt happen for each sng but it did for about 60-70% of the time
and Fool asks:
Did you disable "New Tournaments Take Focus" in PokerStars>Options>Advanced Multi-Table Options? I would expect reports from TableNinja users if this was happening with Stars.
