Ante Cash Games, Anonymous Tables return as Part of partypoker's FairPlay Campaign

As part of their FairPlay campaign, partypoker has decided to make more changes, and on the first week of October, they are going back to basics with the introduction of antes to cash games as an option for their valued players who are searching for more action-packed games.

Rob Yong, Dusk Till Dawn owner and partypoker LIVE founder, duly asked the public via Twitter on what ante options they would like to be included, for their quick-fold cash game variant fastforward.

Even though it was originally planned to go live on October 3, the option of ante games would be made available on the site later this week.

It was actually PokerStars who has offered this as an option for players for several years, and now partypoker is bringing it to their own turf, which requires players to post an ante before every hand in cash games.

More Upcoming Changes this October
Aside from the antes in cash games, other upcoming changes were announced by Yong back in September:

partypoker is also planning to finally roll out MyGame, as promised with the announcement of the banning of HUDs and hand history exports in June. Yong explained that MyGame shall permit players to export anonymous hand histories (excluding opponents' usernames) and allow for better record-keeping of results. To help players keep stats on their play, session data can be exported to third-party trackers like Poker Tracker and Hold'em Manager.

To the behest of players, Yong said they will be putting back the anonymous display option in heads-up and high-stakes cash games. A couple of months ago, the site has required only real names to be displayed in those games.

Yong also said there will be a few changes to the fastforward leaderboard structure and extra features coming up on the site real soon, including the introduction of a "Run it Twice" option, the addition of new poker variants such as 5-card pot-limit Omaha and 8-game as well as a "King of the Hill" system to replace the current heads-up format.

Here are his latest video tweets this October regarding the:

New High ($55-$320) MTT schedule:

New Mid/Low ($1-$33) MTT schedule:

partypoker's FairPlay campaign aims to make partypoker a fair, honest and safe place to play at. This includes improving the online poker experience for recreational players and cracking down on predatory behavior.

There are situations in which the players do not like certain games and it is nice when the certain poker rooms calls on players, to ask which games they prefer to play. I had on the list 3 beautiful game variants a few years ago, but i threw it in the trash, because at that time they would not allow that.

Well, I don't really like the different types that exist, I only like 1 and the others almost don't call my attention despite the fact that they are always taking out new things and sometimes they don't know what to do to be able to bring more people to your site Confused Confused Confused

Cash games with ante plus anonymous is something that you dont see often.
I dont know how many like to play these kind of games.
The anonymity might end up to be common in all the poker sites.
Will make the game even more difficult for many.

The owner of Party Poker will only ask professional players who are mature and experienced. They are used to these tactics and it will not be so difficult for them. It is important for them to make time because it is tiring to play many hours almost in every day.

Based on how many bots they just got rid of - and how many more could be still lurking there - I would not find having anonymus tables - in the name of fairplay - helpful at all. Getting completely rid of HUDs probably was the wrong decision as well.

I personally not play many poker now days but when I do it is platform party poker, because they are room where many good promotion go and to me it look that they want to help players too not just make money and not care abut players like pokerstars

i like cashgames, there are quick ant fun! the only bad thing about it is that if i loose my temper, that a blow all my money in 1 session. patience is a blis, and people shouldnt play like bingo players. that is very frustrating. i wish the best for them , i look forwarth to try it in the near future!
