partypoker has recently made a vital update on Wednesday, September 4 that has to do with software improvements, among them was a significant enhancement to the player experience of Mac computer users.
New Mac table
The highlights of the update include:
New oval and racetrack table shape with improved player plates
Customizable table felt and backgrounds with special theme additions
The ability to also choose different card backs and card fronts
Preview your customizations in the updated themes section in settings
New and improved player notes, providing more color options and optimizing the display of notes on the player plate
New Big Blinds (BB's) count display, allowing player stacks to be displayed in BB's
Other player experience enhancements The software upgrade also includes some extra new features that overall give an enhanced experience for tournament players. Applicable to both Windows and Mac, the highlights include:
New table data points:
Position - A player's position and the total number of players remaining in the tournament
Average Stack - Display of the average stack for the tournament or, if a player is displaying chips in big blinds, the average big blinds
In The Money (ITM) - The ITM indicator displays how many prizes will be awarded for the tournament
Multi-color ITM display- Position and ITM will be highlighted depending on how close a tournament is to the prize pay-out:
No highlight when the field remaining is greater than 120% of number of players ITM
Amber highlight when field remaining is 120% or less of number of players ITM
Green highlight once ITM is reached
Late Reg Countdown- To make it clearer to players when late registration will close, a new countdown has been added to the status column and the right-hand panel for a selected tournament in the lobby.
One-click bet for Windows The Windows download client also got a new additional update. When you enable the new One Click Custom Bet feature in your global settings, you will have the ability to click a custom bet and that bet instantly, without having to re-confirm the bet by clicking the raise button.
Watch the video below about the updates as described by partypoker Team Online member Jaime Staples.
lot of news stuffs at party poker and lot of improves for players!as I see many things you can see now on table and you dont have to go in lobby or some option to see how many players need to go out to get in ITM and other things!very nice that they add something new every few months!
I like it when certain poker rooms have powerful and good software. There are some rooms that no longer have good software, as they had in the past. This thing iit bothers many players and it's not ok. It's nice to have good options and details, in a software that was upgraded a day ago.
A good thing to see a site improving its software, to give players as much as possible from player's experience, to data and info regarding their game. They have the resources, they have the staff required, so something like that is not a hard thing for them. We have seen lately, that they are serious with what they do with all the bot banning...
It is definitely a very inspired move. This means that certain players who were avoiding bots, now they will come to play here. Where you have more security, you must to play, if that poker room has players to be satisfied with their tournaments or games.
I doubt that the bot users arent playing in another site besides party poker. So either we are not hearing same news from other sites, or they havent done anything about them. For example while full tilt and poker stars have the means i believe to track one, their player base is huge, making it more difficult to discover.

You could find them on most tables, just look for some players with weird names (usually a website's name or just some nonsense like: frf#>#f4f) and if they display the same behaviour over and over again they are indeed bots. Those who make these are generally don't have time to make the account elaborate to resemble somebody real, so that's why always some distinction like these with bots.
A complicated problem if you say that there are still bots. I think very seriously to leave poker games. I had many strange situations in the past and i resigned. Since i play poker, i did not win an amount of money to be attractive. I won only a little money and i'm disappointed because bots are guilty.
You are wrong because at high stakes this bots will be caught a little faster. Those who deal with it, will be caught most of it in a shorter time, because those tables are checked much more, than smaller stakes. They choose to play at smaller tables and to take some final tables, to make money but they also play a lot of cash.
Of course, if a person wins several times at a big bet, the security service may have questions about the honesty of this player’s game ... and therefore they will most likely check this player and if he uses something forbidden, then as a result he will quickly calculate and confiscate all the funds and he himself will be permanently removed from this poker room .... but it seems to me that you need to follow the small winnings if they occur very often
