Lots of poker-related companies have been working very hard to promote the games in all parts of the world, but Partypoker, which is currently considered to be the leading player in the online poker industry, has certainly done much more to be where it is right now. A number of changes have been adopted and implemented by the PartyPoker platform over the past couple of years with the platform continue to grow more popular by the day thanks to its player-focused approach that involves the incorporation of poker ambassador as well as giving the users of the platform opportunities to share their views and opinions on both social media and forums.
In that regard, PartyPoker is taking the next step towards meeting its end goal and this time it involves the introduction of a Player Panel on the site. This Players Panel is essentially intended to ensure that communication between the platform and its community of players is improved. The panel will be responsible for deciding the requests and issues that are appropriate enough to be forwarded to the PartyPoker team. In addition to that, the panel will also help with the adjudication on various high-profile fraud and collusion cases as well as assisting the development of strategies relating to the eradication of the use of third-party software to access the platform’s services. Individually, each member of the panel will also contribute to the improvement of PartyPoker LIVE, the brand’s live poker tour.
Big Names on the Panel
The Player Panel currently consists of renowned PartyPoker ambassadors like Sam Trickett, who won $10 million 2nd finish in the $1 million buy-in Big Ones for One Drop back in 2012; Ike Haxton, a former PokerStars Team Pro who in December 2018 won $3.6 million in the Super High Roller Bowl; and Fedor Holz, who has cashed in over $32 million in his illustrious poker career. Among these respected players are a number of equally accomplished members of the poker community including Jason Koon, Patrick Leonard, Joao Simao, Bruno Fituossi, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier and PartyPoker chairman Mix Sexton.
“The Team Partypoker stable will be consulted on issues relating to cash game ecology, fairness, and etiquette, and will collaborate with Partypoker in its ongoing drive to develop and optimize the core poker product, while also working on broader software enhancements,” reads the official announcement of the poker operator.
All of the members of the Player Panel have expressed their excitement and gratitude for being selected to work alongside what is arguably the leading online poker platform in the world. All their experiences will be very useful in guiding major developments and improvements on the PartyPoker LIVE offering and all other gaming offerings.
