PokerStars Launches Boom! Hand Replayer
Be it a bad beat or a brilliant brag, PokerStars have ensured that their players will now be able to share their greatest hands on social media via the newly-launched Boom! Hand Replayer which debuted on the site last week.
Now, rather than wasting valuable Twitter characters describing a hand to their followers, players can simply upload their hands to www.BoomPlayer.com and link directly to the pot in question and interested observers can watch it for themselves.
The site itself also allows players to view and comment on hands that have been uploaded by other players, with PokerStars pros like Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier already adding some of their recent hands to the site for further dissection by the online community.
Using the new Boom! feature is simple and players need only click the star button next to the table chat box to open up an instant hand history, where they the need to highlight the hand that they wish to upload and click the Boom! button before choosing where they want to send the video.
To celebrate the launch of the Boom! Hand Replayer, PokerStars.com are currently running a mini competition called the #BOOMAwards, where 10 prizes of 5,000 FPPs will be awarded to the best hands uploaded to the site. In order to enter, simply send a hand to www.BoomPlayer.com and write a short blurb as to why you think it is the best to be in with a chance of winning the free points.
