partypoker: high stakes games with observers
partypoker defined a long time ago that you would see the action at cash games only if you are playing. This approach was justified by the need to fight table selection and bumhunting.
But, this rule had an unpleasant consequence — poker fans could not see their favorite players battling at the highest stakes, as in other large rooms. Rob Yong announced Solomon's solution to this problem.
However, so far no players have joined such tables.
Patrick Leonard vs. Regs
Patrick Leonard started sharing his thoughts on the development of online poker this year. At first, he referred to his core discipline — MTT, but recently the Briton issued a text in a blog: "How to save cash games."
According to Patrick, it's necessary to save amateurs from regulars who beat them too quickly, bumhunt, and deeply affect the poker ecosystem without bringing anything into it. The player proposes two solutions to the problem:
- After every 8 tables where the player is not the first to sit, he must start two tables at the same stake;
- One out of ten buy-ins must be given to the players who lost in the same games ("give it back to the economy of that stake").
These proposals will cause massive discontent among regs, and it would be very complex to implement this feature on the site. Rob Yong's suggestions for ideal cash games shared a few months ago are much more realistic.
Upcoming updates at partypoker
After the end of the WPT Online Series, there was a small update in the room. New Daily Legends tournaments have been added to the lobby, where tickets for freerolls and tournaments from $2,2 to $55 are randomly raffled among participants. Rob Yong outlined parypoker's top priorities on his Twitter acc. These include:
- Change the rake at low stakes from N2 to NL25;
- Organization of MILLIONS Online, Monster Series, and online versions of the Caribbean Poker Party;
- Development of a new client.
If the first two initiatives are deployed this year, the new software will most likely have to wait until 2021. Then, maybe some of the ideas shared by Yong and Leonard will be implemented.
