Pokerstars wants to introduce insurance for All-Ins

According to a report by F5poker based on research by Poker Industry PRO, Pokerstars is planning some interesting new features for upcoming updates. Among other things, Pokerstars wants to introduce the long-overdue feature that players can also display their stacks in big blinds.

Also, upcoming updates should make it possible to throw objects at other players. In addition to these marginal changes, there is also an absolute hit: Pokerstars seems to be thinking about all-in insurance.

How does all-in insurance work?

This should allow players to buy themselves out of hand after an all-in in cash games before the hand ends. The price for this is calculated according to the equity that has always been displayed. If a player goes all-in in a game situation and gets a call and has an 80% chance of winning, he can decide to cash out $ 8 directly and take it with him. The player must pay a previously undefined fee to poker stars but is not afraid of the cards yet to be revealed.

The idea already existed several times in the online poker world, so the site GGNetwork already offers such insurance, and with InsuredPlay there was already an external provider who offered such insurance for players.

All-in insurance takes out variance, but strongly shakes the basic principle of poker

Pokerstars would go one step further by taking variance out of poker. The rake with which Pokerstars makes its money would continue to rise for some players. More old-fashioned players who are already resisting game options like Deal It Twice will argue that this is an even bigger step away from the original poker game, which has always been a combination of skill and luck.
