Rob Yong offered the face recognition function in the expensive cash games and tournament finals
Rob Yong, who is the owner of Dusk Till Dawn casino and PartyPoker partner, often conducts the polls on his Twitter concerning the possible innovations in this poker room. Yesterday, he posted another interesting poll on his Twitter:
The poker community reacted ambiguously at this idea. The famous poker player Faraz Jaka said that this innovation should be implemented gradually in order not to scare away the new players. For example, face recognition function can be introduced only for those who played more than 20 sessions.
Last year, PartyPoker published the monthly reports concerning the fight against bots. In 2019, 768 accounts were blocked at PartyPoker and the poker players were paid compensation in the total amount of $1 400 000.
Obviously, the face recognition function will significantly limit the possibility of unfair play in online poker.
