PokerStars udalil knopku Fold
Over the past year, the largest poker network, PokerStars, has seen a lot of changes. The same can be said for the last few weeks.
One such change that took place at the end of 2016 was the removal of the fold button when there is no raise. In other words, if you are in the big blind and no one has raised the bet, then you will only have the “check” and “raise” options. Likewise, if no opponent has bet yet postflop, then you only have the check and bet options.
This is not a radical innovation, as PokerStars previously asked the player who clicked "fold" if he really wanted to fold, because at the moment there is no benefit from it. It just speeds up the game for participants accidentally hitting a button, not realizing that they have nothing to lose from a check. It can also be useful for new players who do not fully understand the rules.
Some users are unhappy with this change, but it really shouldn't bother anyone, and possibly other poker rooms will copy it. Also, since the hand history files have not changed at all, there is no need to update from the HUD provider (if you are using one).
What are other news?
Another new addition at the end of last year was The Deal on PokerStars. This is one of the formats in which FPP can be used. PokerStars reported that this is a game with a neutral expectation in the long term and the room does not take rake in it.
One strategy that can be applied here is to play every 12 hours to get a portion of the jackpot if someone hits it. Half of the prize goes to the lucky one, but everyone who has played in the past 12 hours gets a small share, which is about $ 1.
The latest recent change affects only a few of the big PokerStars grinders. The poker room has turned Supernova VIP status from annual to monthly and capped the maximum reward to 28%. He also said that during this year he will make other changes to the VIP program, in particular, will include a bookmaker and a casino.
