The beta version of PokerStars 7 (desktop software for Windows PCs on the .COM, .EU, and .ES sites.) was released on Thursday last week. The new software was described as follows by Brad Willis on PokerStars Blog: "We think you're going to be impressed. The new software looks a lot nicer and boasts new features with just about every click. No matter whether you are brand new or a PokerStars veteran, the new software is aimed at getting you seated and playing as fast as possible. And that's not all. It's a powerful new piece of software."
PokerStars' Lee Jones said on the day of the release, "Over the last few years, we have invested countless hours to research, design and develop this new iteration of our flagship software. We believe this release is friendlier for new players and more intuitive and powerful for our veterans. So now we're inviting our players to test the beta version of the software and help us ensure that it meets the high standards that everyone expects of PokerStars."
Modifications of the software included also a cleaner tournament lobby, the possibility not only to detach but also to fully hide the chatbox from the tables, and to use the so-called "chip graph,” a handy feature that tracks a player's progress through a tournament and shows it in relation with other useful data as the 'average chip stack' and 'largest chip stack' graphs throughout the tournament.
not going to upgrade for sure (unless stars offer a free $100 for doing so)- first of all it's beta, but that's not the worst part... rumors float around that with this new upgrade you update to a new mega-riged system and you are doomed right from the start, such features like the magic river was in the old version, but new 7 has magic turn and even magic flop- so no need for any hopes- you are beat right from the flop...
Posted by demodawggy: ...talking about 'rigged'...whatever happened to ol' mascona dude...?
he had some pimped up version of Stars 6 software downloaded from some Russian torrent site which probably was the reason behind all the rigged claims... but now he has gone a step further and downloaded Stars 7 Beta from North Korean Safe Torrents Alliance and he was never seen anywhere again... moral to the story: stick to Russian torrent sites
