Bodog releases new poker software
Finally an online poker room is taking steps to allow the recreational player a better chance of winning. The Bodog Poker Room has released its new software and some of the changes are long overdue to the online poker community. Changes to the new software include new faster action, cheaper rake, tournament formats, anonymous tables, rabbit cam, as many as 20 MTTS at once, and an in-client blackjack option.
The most important change to the software has to be the anonymous tables. This innovation alone negates most of the edges that online pros can get by tracking the play of a particular opponent. Now at the Bovada Poker Room if you get a read on a particular player it will only be useful during that game. As soon as that player leaves the table the read is gone with them.
The Bovada Poker Room has also gone out of their way to block data-mining sites. This evens the playing field substantially and makes the Bovada Poker Room far better than any other online poker room for the recreational player. This should, and will very likely be, adopted by other poker rooms in the future.
The rabbit cam is interesting but it also has the potential to cause tilt for some players who peak at the next card only to find out that they would have hit their card in a big hand that they folded. The other fun option is the new in-client blackjack games poker players can access with their poker accounts. Now poker grinders can play their favorite casino game without the hassle of logging out.
The new software at the Bovada Poker Room also offers some improvements for the heavy grinder. Still available are the four simultaneous cash games and sit-and-go tables, but now MMT grinders can play as many as 20 events at once.
As well, the new tournament formats are exciting since the Bovada Poker Room has great tournament action already. Now Omaha, Shootout, and Heads-up events will be available, and if the guaranteed layovers apply the bargains will be the best online.
