Latest Update on partypoker's Fairplay Campaign - Improved Cash Game Decision Times

As part of their #Fairplay campaign, partypoker has made a lot of changes to their software, aiming to make the game safe, honest and fair for all of their players, and the latest improvement shall commence on Friday, June 28.

To Make Poker Fun and Fair Again
The first five major changes were implemented on June 17, 2019 as part of partypoker's #Fairplay campaign. This included banning HUDs, the creation of new aliases, taking down downloadable hand histories, and making it impossible to observe cash games without being seated at the table.

Now, this newest change involves the decision times in cash games - a move in response to player feedback - helping to improve player experience and therefore make the games much more fun. About the current decision times, Rob Yong said, "The settings are very old, so we are aligning with the industry standard for a faster more exciting game."

Cash Game Decision Times

No Limit Hold'em (NLHE) cash games will allow 15 seconds to make a decision pre-flop. While this rule remained the same, post-flop decision time now has been reduced from 20 seconds to just 15.

As for Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) cash games, players originally have 25 seconds to act before the flop is revealed. This time, it will be reduced to 15 seconds, just like in the NLHE cash games. As for post-flop, PLO players will have 20 seconds to act.

The reason for these latest changes is to improve player experience - by making cash games faster and more exciting to play.

Partypoker is also working on an all-new and improved time bank system, to be introduced in the near future.

All cash games, except for the fastforward tables, shall be updated starting June 28, Friday.

You can not improve the players' experience when you cut from 15 to 20 seconds time of the decisions. It is a bad thing and it affects a lot talent and players' abilities. I speak from my point of view because is very frustrating and do not have the necessary time to move. If you play in multiple tables is disaster.

it seems to me 15 or 20 seconds A small difference to make a decision ... As a rule I make a decision for a maximum of 5 seconds .... This is enough for me to evaluate the strength of my hand and my chances .... but maybe I should think a little big and then my poker game results will improve? .... but I don’t really want to think long ... because you can make the wrong decision in the end .... as a rule, the first decision is the right one

It a whole lot of BS as usual when it comes from Party. It's nothing unique, after their big promotiomal 'bot-hunting' and forbidding the usage of HUD softwares this one does not even comes close to suprise me.

I think PartyPoker is trying to position its poker room as the most honest poker room that exists online .... with such actions, of course, there is an opportunity to convince people of it .... especially if people are just starting to play poker .... then they it may seem that this is really something innovative
