Party Poker has announced the introduction of Bounty tournaments to its already fantastic online poker tournament schedule as part of its latest software upgrade, which also includes new features such as a ‘remember table layout’ feature and enhanced players notes.
Bounty tournaments allow players to get paid for knocking other players out of the tournament. Party Poker takes part of the buy-in and puts it towards a bounty for each player. For example, Party Poker could take $5 of a player’s $20 + $2 buy-in to create their bounty, with the other $15 going towards the prize pool. The bounty winnings are credited to a player’s account immediately.
The new ‘remember table layout’ feature has to be enabled but once it is, this feature will remember the layout of tables when closed and will open new tables at the same size and in the same position. If a player changes the layout of their tables it will open the next new table in the same position as the last one closed. This isn’t a default feature, players have to tick the ‘remember table layout’ check box under Preferences/General/General Options to activate the feature. This feature will remember the layouts on the specific computer a player is playing on and layouts will also be remembered on a secondary monitor. The new enhanced player notes feature makes it even easier to make notes on opponents. All a player has to do is double-click on the player’s image at the table to open the ‘Notes’ section with their name already entered in the ‘Select Player’ field.
A PartyPoker.com spokesman said, “We are always listening to customers and consistently striving to improve our product. The introduction of new bounty tournaments adds an exciting fun dimension to play. These changes come on top of the introduction of the hand history replayer and super speed games last month. Coming up in the future is the introduction of RSA tokens and synchronized breaks.”
