The newly launched online poker room, Run It Once Poker is gearing up for its second software upgrade since it went live publicly in February.
Earlier this week, Phil Galfond, the founder of RIO Poker room, along with several other RIO pros hosted a 24-hour charity stream on Twitch to raise money for Sinai Health and StrongMinds charities.
In the stream, Phil showcased new RIO Poker client while playing on his play-money testing environment client.
Along with several improvements to the room, the new build includes six new table backgrounds, a new splash pot theme with new sound effects and several other fixes including stability improvements and bugfixes.
The new splash pot theme gets activated only if the splashed pot size is 100 big blinds or more. According to Phil, the new theme has been designed to make it more distinct than the smaller splashed pots.
Other features such as resizable tables, new replayer, ability to download hand histories will be included in the following build, Phil said in the stream.
The new update is expected to go live anytime soon.
