Phil Galfondin tulevalle pokerisivustolle kaavaillaan ”pelaajien neuvostoa”

Online-pokerin legendoihin lukeutuva Phil Galfond ilmoitti hiljattain avaavansa oikealla rahan peleihin keskittyvän pokerisivuston, jonka toimintamallin pohjana on asioiden toimiminen pelaajien kannalta katsottuna kiitettävällä tasolla.

Sivuston laukaisuajankohdasta ei ole vieläkään tarkempaa tietoa, mutta Galfond työskentelee jo lujasti tehdäkseen tulevasta saitistaan mahdollisimman hyvän pelaajien kannalta. julkaisemansa viestin välityksellä Galfond ilmoitti muodostavansa tulevalle pokerisivustolleen ”pelaajien neuvoston”, jonka tarkoitus on tuoda pokeriyhteisön mieltä painavat asiat, kysymykset ja ideat suoraan RunItOncen henkilökunnan tietoisuuteen.

Viestissään Galfond kertoo:

We will have discussions with them regarding changes we are considering to our product and offerings. We will also provide the opportunity for the Player Council to verify claims we might make to the community about our rake/rewards calculations, the security of player funds, or similar matters. These will be volunteer positions. Should we have in-person meetings, we will cover expenses. But otherwise, while we greatly appreciate the effort, we feel making these paid positions would undermine the purpose of the Council -- to be an independent representative of the poker community. For individuals who already stay updated on the concerns of the poker community, the additional time commitment required to be involved in the Player Council should not prove excessive.

We are intending to select a four to five player committee. We need engaged and respected members of the community - people who have track records as constructive forum contributors. If you’d like to be considered, please email by October 1st. A short poker and forum bio is all that’s needed - please include any relevant screen names. We would ideally like representatives from a variety of games/stakes, and playing professionally is not a prerequisite.
