Since Ladbrokes announced they’d be launching the innovation of the year – anonymous poker – you sensed it would only be a matter of time before others jumped aboard the anonymous bandwagon – no passport or ID required. PartyPoker have launched their version of blind dating for poker enthusiasts. It’s like a packet of cheap imitation potato chips – you never know what you’re going to get.
PartyPoker’s merry band of professional poker players uses their site to blog about anything from dog necklaces and their sweet tooth. Aussie Millions Main Event 2010 winner Tyson Krost’s latest entry looks at what he calls the “grand masquerade ball in Venice” (infinitely better than my comparison with it, blind dating.)
Krost uses his latest blog to talk about the experience that is anonymous online poker, and how he believes it can be used to your advantage as far as skill is involved. He’s well and truly behind this new idea, the only thing to wonder is why someone didn’t think of this any sooner?
From now on though you can profess to all kinds of grandeur on the poker table and no one will ever be able to find out who you are. Welcome to what the internet used to be: chat rooms.
