  • PokerStars Changes Buy-in Levels for Cash Tables

    Monday, April 19th, 2010 by t2admin

The largest online poker room available, PokerStars, recently announced they have made changes in regards to buy-in levels for their cash games. The site decided to change the buy-in ranges on several stakes of cash games and many are welcome to the change.

PokerStars made the change to accommodate all types of players. The site will be changing the buy-in levels for the No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha cash game tables. The low end of the buy-in changes will be 20 to 40 big blinds and the buy-in default is 40.

The middle buy-in changes will be 40 to 100 big blinds and a default of 80. The highest level will be 100 to 250 big blinds and a default buy-in of 200. This set of blinds will also have an ante that is equal to 20% of the big blind.

The changes PokerStars made to the buy-in levels will make it easier for players to find tables they wish to compete against. Each table will have the level of blinds clearly labeled for the player to see. Players can hover the mouse pointer over the table name to see the detailed information about the table.

Players will also have to wait at least sixty minutes to be able to return to a table after they leave. This is an increase from the previous thirty minute waiting period. The changes were made to help restore balance to the poker tables at the PokerStars poker room.

Players could enter in a table with 20 to 100 big blinds and short stackers would be in a tough position. This will help players all around and make the cash game experience better for every member of PokerStars poker room.
