Phil Galfond conducted closed beta testing of RunItOnce Poker
Well-known American poker player Phil Galfond, who develops his own poker resource, conducted a closed testing of RunItOnce Poker (RIO Poker) with the involvement of third-party users. Several members of the community were invited to try out the new poker room. After testing, reviews about Run It Once appeared in the network, in which users point out several positive characteristics of the poker room during the three hours of testing. Firstly, the new resource allows players to remain anonymous. Also, the creators refused to use the Heads Up Display (HUD) system, which displays user statistics. At the same time, players have the opportunity to mark opponents with color marks, but their validity period is limited to 4 hours. Interestingly, random images for the participants of the game are used as an avatar at the tables. Secondly, the players who took part in testing note the simplicity of the lobby design and the minimum set of settings for active tables. At the same time, despite the absence of a hud, depending on the player’s activity, the status of the avatar changes every 10 hands (Loose Passive, Very Tight, etc.). During testing, Texas Hold’em and Omaha tables were available. To make a deposit, a standard set of payment systems was used: Visa, EcoPayz, Skrill, Neteller. The next beta testing session is expected to take place next week. RunItOnce Poker has been under active development for two years now. During this time, the main ideologist of the project, Phil Galfond, postponed the official release several times. It was originally planned to launch the poker room in the first half of 2017. In September 2018, Galfond showed a video of the current version of the site and once again moved the date of its launch.
