Software Updates

Stay up to date with the latest version of the partypoker client software, and learn more about each new feature!

Thursday, 14 March sees the latest partypoker software update, which brings with it a raft of new features.

Short Deck

Short Deck poker hits the client.

This exciting cash game format is played with a reduced deck of cards, with all cards below “6” removed, leaving 36 cards to play with. The game plays almost identically to Texas Hold’em, except a flush beats a full house and there is no small or big blind. Instead, everyone pays an ante (in addition to a button ante) to help generate action. This is a game that has increased in popularity in the high stakes world and now we’re bringing it to the masses.

Multi-select categories

Players will be able to multi-select tournaments filters once they have downloaded the new partypoker software, allowing them to select multiple category options from the tournament lobby.

For example, players can now select “Monster Series” and Power Series” simultaneously, and all the multi-table tournaments from these categories will be displayed.

Coloured tournament & fastforward names (tournaments lobby)

Prefixes and suffixes of tournament names are displayed in different colours to allow players to identify various tournament parameters such as tournament name, tournament series (if any), guarantee (if any) etc.


New oval table

The latest update sees the introduction of the new oval table, combined with updated player plates and layout.

If you're a fan of the racetrack view you will be pleased to know that this remains an option under table themes.

Modern player plates

Player plates have been updated to display chips and screen names more clearly. Chip values are now larger and brighter, with the increased visibility allowing for easier multitabling.


Hole cards are now easier to distinguish, and you have the option to display hole cards side by side by turning off display player image under table themes.



Improved player notes

You now have the option to colour code your opponent's player plates making players you have notes on much clearer. In addition to this, hovering over aliases now allows you to view player notes without opening the note panel, allowing quick, detailed viewing of all player notes on a table.

Additional data points in cash game lobby

There’s now more information readily available to players looking to join a cash game! Stats such as the average pot size and the percentage of players seeing the average flop are now clearly displayed in the lobby.

New Darker lobby & table theme

Overall, the contrast improves the readability and visual appeal of key information. In addition, the actual gameplay experience is further enhanced by a traditional green felt table and a more prominent player plate, indicating the player’s turn.

New navigation and filters

  • By removing the left-hand navigation and relocating secondary information into a dropdown menu, we’ve created a wider area in which to display game information in a more accessible, visually-pleasing way.
  • Players will have more immediate access to T$
  • The play money lobby has been updated with the same navigation as the real money lobby to provide a more authentic experience.
