We are proud to introduce a new feature here on PTR that will give players more control over their profiles. PTR Link (in its beta release) allows members to take control of their PTR poker player profiles, gaining access to customization functionality, with even more awesome features and tools to come!
PTR Link is open to any members who have a poker account on one of our featured networks. These include Party Poker, OnGame, iPoker, Merge, and Cake. All you have to do is visit your PTR player profile page and click on the ‘Link This Profile’ button (you can also do this from your MyPTR page directly). You'll be given a unique set of instructions to complete (such as “sit at any NL10 table with $5.43”). Once we’ve spotted you at the table, you’ll be confirmed as the profile owner.
The first customization features include the ability to add an avatar and biography as well as the power to moderate comments. The comments you make on your profile will be highlighted and will appear under your poker screen name, allowing you to engage in discussion directly with your poker fans!
There are many more features in the works and we’re excited about the potential that PTR Link provides our users – things like extended customization and privacy settings.
We appreciate any feedback you may have, please feel free to discuss PTR Link in this thread.
Some tips for new users:
- images may take a few minutes to appear on your bio page
- OnGame players will have to strategically sit in and out at the tables to avoid blinds while being scanned - sitting out prevents us from confirming your stack size
- some 1c/2c tables have a minimum 50bb stack requirement - if you can't confirm the link, it will expire and you can attempt a new one. The table stack instructions have a range starting at 40bb and a variety of tables, so chances are you'll get a stack you can sit with
