PPartypoker which won the EGR Poker Operator Of The Year Awards in 2017 and 2018 is continuing to come out with steps to boost player interaction and develop a better poker product. The online poker website has been on a quest to reclaim market share that it lost prior to Black Friday and has done rather well in the last couple of years.
One of the reasons for partypoker’s success in recent years is due to its attentiveness to player feedback on social media channels and poker forums. Partypoker is now taking that initiative a step further by launching its first ever player panel.
First Player Panel
The chief purpose of this panel is to facilitate better communication between the poker community and the brand. Partypoker wants this special player panel to look into its online poker offerings as well as its live poker tournament scene.
The main role of the panel will be look to give feedback on its live and online poker procedures and policies; to act as an impartial adjudicator in cases of high-profile collusion or fraud; to develop effective strategies against third-party software use; to provide insight on cash game fairness, etiquette, and ecology; to assist in its attempts to optimize and develop its core poker product.
The panel will also work on enhancing its software and to provide expertise to help improve the partypoker LIVE tour. Players as well as poker pros are excited about this new panel.
Players On The Panel
The panel includes online poker players as well as partypoker ambassadors such as Jason Koon, Ike Haxton, Joao Simao, Sam Trickett, and Patrick Leonard. It also includes professional poker players from the ring-fenced markets of Spain and France—Bruno Fitoussi and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier. The latter has declared that he is happy to get the opportunity to involve actively in the poker renaissance that partypoker has initiated.
Poker player Simao said that he has enjoyed two amazing years with partypoker and that the panel has given him an opportunity to understand partypoker’s way of working better. He also said that he is happy to be a part of the team and to support players not just from the LATAM area, but also from the rest of the world.
Tom Waters, managing director of partypoker was happy to assemble a player panel consisting of some of the biggest names in the poker world. He called it an elite team and said that they will help partypoker grow while simultaneously making sure that the poker room makes decisions that prioritize players’ best interests.
The Player Panel is the latest addition to Team partypoker, which comprises the original Team partypoker with elite players who represent the online poker room at live tournaments as well as online tournaments in their countries of residence worldwide.
