888 Poker have now launched their Face2Face poker. This is a webcam feature that will allow players to play each other, face2face. This is said to bring a "new dynamic to the world of online poker". The webcam system is now live in the 888 poker software and it also include a communication system that should be similar to Skype. As of now, 888 is running the Face2Face on a variety of different cash tables.
Maytal Ginzburg at 888 Poker explains: "We believe that real poker is not just about winning money, but it’s about the thrill, the fun, the excitement and the social poker experience. Online poker has been traditionally focused on the ‘money making’ element – we feel that there is no reason why online poker should not enable players to meet, socialize and play together. Our new pokercam tables offer our customers a place to meet, play and socialize and are a true indication of our commitment to play different. It’s all about opening our doors to customers that want a casual game of poker, some may play for fun and some may play for real money what we offer is a fun and exciting game of poker against people who share the same interests as you and now you can actually see and talk to them!”
fun i think next weak i ll also try this new poker revoliution its really must be funny to see how the oponent reaction was on your bids or calls its new era poker i think soon alll the poker sites will have tables with same option
I don't think the most popular sites will do this. I mean Full Tilt has enough issues with security. I did notice this on 888 yesterday, but i'm not gonna deposit just to check it out. Have fun, good luck
It's a horrible idea! In fact, what is really important in online poker is that you are absolutely anonymous. Your tells are hidden and you don't you anything about your opponent. Please, don't f**k with new and strange experiments
Hmmm why I am thinking i saw thread like that already somewhere here? Or maybe I am wrong... Nobody will play there for sure (nobody for "real" cause it's waste. There will be mostly fishes who want to "play for real" without going out.... So maybe some regs will come there too.
This seems a bit kinky for me. It can be nice if you know the other player, but if you dont, why should we open something that can put more pressure on the game? It can be a way of scaring our oponent, or being scared... will there be poker faces?
The idea is just stupid you wont get any reads on a damn webcam i would just be laughing my ass off watching the other opponent its just stupid . IN the end of the day the one who came out with this idea should tatto a sign FAIL on his chest
Well people I am actually playing there I have made 10$ deposit to try it and Im up 30$ Lot of fishes, loose calls, gambling, but IT IS FUN! There can be some really funny situations and there are some really funny characters... People are mostly friendly, and if you want to laugh a lot U can find table for you...For those couple days I playing I saw one man dressed like he is on north pole, one man smoking horse, one man smoking crack, one that thinks he is big pro (doing chip tricks and acting like he is on WSOP)... But people are mostly friendly and relaxed and... dont know how to play There is traffic only on 4c and 6c tables, rarely on 10c tables. All in all its not that bad an you can earn some money too...
Posted by p0ck3tr0ck3t: dont like this idea. no need to change online poker if u wonna see your opponents then play a live game
It wont change nothing because you can multitable video tables and serious players wont play that...That is just add on in world of online poker like rush on FT or Home games or PKR software...

It wont fail for sure because it is fun and there is lot of fishes (where are fishes there will always be sharks to feed ) And you actually can make read on your opponent sometimes... I fount one guy who when he hits card that he need he always shake his head and acting like he is frustrated and unsatisfied with it
something only girl can take any advantage of... i mean... just imagine there is a hot chick stripping for you... you will loose any hand... and whats even harder: you won´t leave unless you are broke!
to all the people saying just play a alive game dont know where your all from but in north america it is illegal to play a "home game" not to mention how many people can you get together unless your 16 to 19. people get jobs just a thought
