You’re probably aware that partypoker is dedicated to creating a playing environment that is fun, exciting and fair for all players regardless of the size of their bankroll or their level of experience; our Poker for the People campaign is testament to this.
In the coming weeks, partypoker is taking Poker for the People to the next level by ensuring a level playing field for every single player who plays at the site by making improvements to the poker platform. In short, the changes are as follows:
- Players will be able to view the last 12 months of their own hand histories within the Missions icon in the partypoker software, but hand histories will no longer be able to be downloaded and saved to their local devices
- Players wishing to wait for a cash game will join the room-wide waiting list and be randomly seated when a seat that matches their preference becomes available
- Players joining a cash game will see the names of their opponents only once their first hand is dealt
Director of Games, Golan Shaked, explains why these changes are being made.
“As part of our Poker for the People campaign, the partypoker team is committed to providing all poker players, regardless of experience or skill levels, with trusted poker products that are fair, ethical and fun. We will continue working with the wider poker community on developing a mutually beneficial, trusting relationship.”
World Poker Tour Caribbean champion and partypoker Ambassador, Tony Dunst, is equally as excited for the upcoming changes and explains why they are beneficial to poker players from a recreational level all the way up to professionals.
“These changes at partypoker are designed to create a more hospitable environment for recreational players. Unfortunately, many of the tools and tactics that professionals use to maximize their edge have made the games too difficult for new players to survive. Without them, grinders will merely pass money back and forth while being raked, and games will inevitably dry up. I think these changes will help level the playing field for casual players, and preserve the quality of games for professionals.”
