Changes at Party

After being down for a long while last night/this morning, there are numerous changes at Party.

- Party players no longer play with skin players. Skin players will still play together on a network run by Party, but they won't play with Party players
- They now offer Blackjack
- You can 8-table now
- Deals can now be made at the final table of cash prize-only multitable tournaments
- Side bets can made
- No more rakeback at Party

No skin players sucks and allowing blackjack can't be good for the poker players...

It's about time they let you make deals, though.

Until today, everyone playing on those sites played on Party tables. They were all on the same network, so they shared almost all tables (except for special tourneys, etc). When you sat down at a table on Party, you could be playing with people from one of the "skins" at not even know it.

Now, Party is off on its own and doesn't share tables with anyone. The skins are on a network that is still being run by Party, but in which Party does not participate. Thus, only people on Empire, Intertops, Multipoker, and Eurobet share tables.

This effectively makes any bonus whoring opportunities on the skins nowhear near as fishy as normal, since all empire (and other skins) players will be playing against each other for the reload bonuses instead of the giant partypoker fish pool.

Fuck party poker. Fuck them and their high rake.
