Phil Galfond lures Pokerstars players to the bright side

14.01.2020
Pokerstars, Holdem Manager 3

Phil Galfond a few years ago announced plans to create a poker room for players. The preparatory period dragged on, but in 2019 Run It Once Poker was finally launched. After almost a year of operation, the new poker room cannot boast of a large increase in traffic. At the moment, it is only 70 people per day (average digit for the week). This is the 44th place at Pokerscout.

Nevertheless, Phil is not discouraged, along the way claiming that the first year of work was devoted to improving software, but in 2020 they will focus on attracting new players and popularizing the room.

RIO Poker didn’t have a word with the case and they started the new year right off the bat - they challenged Pokerstars. The name of the action came out as epic as possible: "Stars become Legends." The first 3 weeks from the moment you deposit in Phil’s room, you can count on doubled rakeback. From 4 to 8 weeks, 1.5 times more cash bonuses will be credited. All players who have completed registration before January 31 will be given a training course “From the Ground Up” for free.

Another significant argument in favor of the transition to Run It Once Poker Phil Galfond outlined in a companion post. There he listed all the negative aspects of Pokerstars policy in the format of leading questions (high rake, lack of rakeback, constant infringement of rights) and urged not to miss the opportunity to change the situation for the better. Poker in 2020: play 4 tables without rakeback or play with a big rakeback. One table. In the evening. May be.

There are more optimistic news related to the activities of RIO Poker. So back in December, there was support for the poker room from Holdem Manager 3. This suggests two facts at once:

  • The poker room is considered by developers as having potential;
  • At Run It Once Poker, they do not plan to prohibit the use of the HUD and deny access to hand histories.

If you want to switch to a new poker room in the new year and use the newest software there, then you can download Holdem Manager 3 from the official developers site for free.
