Honestly the next I will take time to give a damn about PP is when they r no longer gonna treat hungarians like pariahs. They are gone from our markets long ago so I see no reason to bother with them.

There has been quite a few changes at party poker lately but not really sure why some of them are happening.As for the cash games why reveal the name of your opponent after the first hand?You can still just leave if you don't want to play them?

Yes, but seating scripts allow you to scan all tables to find weak players. Now you have to join every one, and play a hand in order to find out.
This is a handicap for bumhunters; they might go elsewhere.

I don't use any seating script software, but I did bum hunt, by looking up weak players on poker table ratings site. This had an enormous positive impact on my winrate. This new measure makes table selection a lot harder.

ok so what's the point of showing the name of the opponent in the 1st hand- if they want to go anonymous they should go anonymous all the way right? this sounds like fighting a bank scammer by only allowing him to see his victims login details only once.

It's always nice to be able to choose who you sit down at a table with. However, the surprise of not knowing which shark or fish you are sitting with does mix it up a big....but does it both ways. Fishes can no longer run away from the Sharks and makes it all the much better for fun!

These changes could become universal standards by the end of 2016.

It's obviously a very good initiative. Recording data of billions of hands and using to your advantage clearly is cheating in my opinion. No human can do that. Part of poker is to be able to find out how your opponents play, not knowing right off the bath what's his VPIP and his 3bet %.

I hope all poker sites follow Bwin/Partypoker on this one.
