Login to party poker it will automatically make you to change your Alias and then you will recieve "Login Click Card" where you can win prizes , after that you have hourly click cards.
Don't forget to go in "promotions" and opt in for it.

This looks like a more promising promotion than what Jokerstars have right now in June with that 'pirate craze'...

It's weird when the poker rooms forcing you to change that name. Why do they do this? That the players will not know who they are? To Stop being old aggressive rivalries or maybe at the request of the players who are tired by old nicknames?

Another site taking measures against the tracking softwares that exist now.
Better for the players of course. But at some point they will pick up again,
at least in party poker, since it appears the alias change will be a one time thing only.
Unless they are planning to do this in a regular basis...

It is true that you have the option to keep it this nick name and normally some people choose it. I think the majority will choose for change because they want to be anonymous. I changed my nick name in three rooms so far. In Party Poker not.

for players who play many years at party poker,this is not such a good option,because you know lot of players and how they play,but know if they change their allias,they will different persons and you wouldnt know with whome you play!so dont is this good for players!

Their disadvantage is that: they can also be recognized by experienced players and this is not ok. The percentage of those who change their nicknames is bigger in my opinion. It's important that: he is hiding and steal money from players who are not so experienced. When the players know who you are, they are afraid to play with you.

Jokerstars promotions are always terrible i swear to god i never saw someone having worse promotions then them , the only thing i like is PokerNews freerolls which are 2,000$ each time and there is like only 300-400players.
Partypoker promotions are way better they even have promotion now if you deposit 20$ you get 30$ in Spin'Go tickets and you don't have to do any wagering with them straight cash.

Sometimes is very easy to win prizes in promotions or bonuses but there are some tournaments which are difficult to win something. I saw that in all the poker rooms where i played. However, the main purpose is to play with real money. Freerolls are for fun or to learn more strategy.

So the new register your alias software didn't work as smoothly as partypoker would like with people struggling for much of the first day to register their new aliases, with the promo being extended to cover some of the lost time but not all. But hey! It looks a good thing on the hole that tracking software can't now be used and starts to level out the playing field for recreational players. Only time will tell.

The whole thing must be something new in party poker.
All these players using tracking software to play there, may have stopped playing completely.
If they are basing their game, getting data from a third party, then there wont be any
reason continue playing there.
Probably they will search for a site that these programs can still be used.
But the circle gets smaller and smaller on them...

Poker industry has a really bad Anti-Cheat if you ask me because there is alot of bots on every site i assume.
They have to work on it and invest alot of money especially PokerStars because they are company with most money there shouldn't be any 3rd softwares allowed play like everyone else plays , or get banned simple as that.

I think this is a great innovation from PartyPoker .... if no additional poker software is used when playing in this poker room, as it seems to me, the odds will be a little equal .... because someone uses such programs And some don't. ... but of course, first and foremost is the player's power .... and only then additional tools

Innovations are good only if the players are happy with them. I saw good things but also many bad things with the softwares of of different poker rooms. For me it is a disadvantage when something is broken and to the old software was much better.

They did not banned every tracking app I think only the ones which built databases from outside of your gamelogs. At least Jokerstars did something like that.

No matter what, it is a step to the right direction. Will make the game more transparent i think.
And if the changes like this are constant, then the tracking of any kind will be impossible.
I have read somewhere that there are also sites, that you can not choose the table.
You are just signing up, and the seat you are taking is random.
This is another measure for the players that are "following" specific ones, cause they have
marked them as easy targets Smile

I have no problem with tracking, it does not give you that much of an advantage on MTTs (where I play the most) because you won't spend enough time on just one table so the sample sizes remain small which makes most results less reliable.

For a regular tournament is not that of a problem, if there are many players in.
BUt even there can someone have an intel on you, from the moment you go to their table.
It is different if you sit down and no one has a clue how you play.
And of course it is worst in sng's and cash games.
