The New PokerStars Client

By: gtwi @ 21:21 (EST) / 320 / Comment ( 1 )

With PokerStars adding Casino, Sports Betting to the Client package, I has caused a lot of worries, angry, and joy.  We have seen a very prominent person in the poker industry leave PokerStars because of this, and I have read blogs, articles of how people will leave.  Then there are many who look forward to this coming as well.

I have been thinking about this for awhile now and my thoughts on it is that I don't really want it to be apart of my client.  At first, I thought that I just may leave PokerStars and go to some other site.  However, I really like the way everything is setup and how the games are structured.  I may not get that in other poker sites, and there would be no quarantee that they would not switch over to more casino style games as well.

Then I began to think that maybe, Pokerstars could have it so that we as members, could opt in or out of the Casino portion so that if we do not want it, it would not show up on our client.  Could this be done? And if we decide at some point down the road that we want to be apart of the Casino games, we could opt in again.

Perhaps, this could satisfy everyone.  Who knows.

Anyways, that's my 10 cents worth of thought on that.
