Back in 2016, Phil Galfond began developing his poker room and now there are only a few hours left before its launch. According to the poker player, Run It Once will begin work on this Wednesday, February 6, 2019.
Phil reported this on February 3 at the poker room website.
On the 2+2 forum thread dedicated to the opening of Run It Once, Galfond thanked all the beta testers for helping to improve the software and fixing bugs. He also promised that on Wednesday he would be present in the poker room chat all day and communicate with the first Run It Once players.
He also created the official topic of the new poker room on the most popular English-speaking poker forum. In the first post, Galfond wrote the following:
«Hey, ladies and gentlemen of 2+2,
I’m Phil Galfond, long-time 2+2er and first-time poker site operator
Run It Once Poker is opening its doors on Wednesday, February 6th.
I’ve written quite a bit about our features, policies, and beliefs as a company. You can find all of my posts (as well as a bunch of other details once we launch) at runitonce.eu.
To sum them up:
We are trying to bring something new to the online poker world with the goal of creating solutions to industry problems that, as poker players, we’re all too familiar with. We’re trying to build the poker site that we’d want to play on.
As part of that goal, we want to remain transparent and engaged with the community. That’s you!
On that topic, I’d like to introduce our aptly named Community Engagement Manager, RunItOnce Nick. He (and I) will be in here answering questions, taking suggestions, and hiding from angry trolls.
As I mentioned in my last pre-launch post, I will really appreciate each and every one of you who plays a few hands and lets us know what you think. Looking forward to talking to you all about this project that we’ve been working so hard on!
The poker community is eagerly awaiting the launch of Run It Once, since the development of the room was carried out by eminent professionals: Phil Galfond, Ben Sulsky, Jason Koon, Jens Kyllönen and others. Even the players not involved in the work of the poker room expressed the opinion that it can bring something new to the world of online poker.
The Run It Once poker room is available for players from Russia, so you can also try out a novelty. Share in the comments your first impressions of the game there.
