Pokerstars to discontinue unfold poker variant.

By RP, September 12, 2018

PokerStars’ continuing initiatives to provide players with new and interesting poker variants will continue despite the occasional setback where a new product does not work out, according to the company’s director of poker innovation and operations Severin Rasset.

Rasset made the comment in his announcement this week that following a review the company has decided to “fold Unfold”, a variant that allowed a player to pay to unfold his cards if he or she determined that the flop was actually suitable (see previous report).

The decision follows a short period which presumably showed that there was little demand for the product, a fate shared by two earlier PokerStar’s innovations – Showtime Hold’em and Split Hold’em.
