(PRWEB) June 17, 2006 — The interactive celebrity poker room CelebPoker.com has released an upgraded version of their online poker room software. Based on new demands made by players, the poker software looks and feels more like a real card room than any other site online. The features added are making the game more fun for players and also allowing them to keep track of the competition and winning hands in a way that was previously unavailable.
One new feature is ‘Player Notes’ which allows players to keep track other competition in real time. Above each player at the table there is a small pen icon that can be clicked on and opened. In the screen a player can make notes about another’s style, betting patterns and speed. This window looks much like a notepad and allows players to enter any information they feel is useful to remember. For example a player wins many hands from another competitor in a session and makes notes about their betting style throughout the night. The next time that player is online and seated at the table they will be able to open the window and recall facts noted about them in previous sessions. This new tool is very valuable over the course of extended online play.
To speed up the process of selecting a game that fits a players demands new table and tournament filters have been added. New filter buttons are now visible which makes it more convenient for players to locate the kind of tables and tournaments they are interested in. Many online poker rooms display an arrange of games and tournament start times with the information and details very hard to find. The CelebPoker.com software menu has the table and tournament information available for quick and easy selection.
As additional information, the total amount in the pot is presented on the table. The amount includes the amount in the main pot as well as the sum of all currently placed bets on the table. Unlike many poker rooms the real totals are presented as soon as the bets are placed into the pot. These figures will allow players to gain a more ‘real’ sense of the wagering action and provide them with a resource to more accurately make raises.
Many times when a river card comes and the winning hand is declared new players and multi-table players are left searching to see how they lost the pot. Now then the winning hand has been determined; the cards that make up that hand are highlighted. This allows players to see each hand won clearly and learn from and recognize a bad bet/beat sequence. In addition to this there has been an increased in the number of hands kept in ‘hand history.’ The number of poker hands written to the textual hand history that is accessible from the poker table has been increased to 1,000 hands. Again providing more information to the players and allowing them to record betting patterns and results. These tools in addition to players’ notes are making poker players.
On the technical front there have been improvements and upgrades added as well. One major convenience feature is the improved access to the cashier. The online cashier center can now be opened by clicking on the chip tray on the poker table and deposits can be made seamlessly.
