Hold'em Manager 2 Now Supports PokerStars Bubble Rush Tournaments

A few weeks ago, the world's largest real money online poker network, PokerStars, released a new type of tournament aptly named Bubble Rush.
In a nutshell, these tournaments are hyper-turbo until all players are in the money, at which point it becomes a regular speed tournament. The tournaments also slow down one to two more times as the action gets deeper, giving players a deeper structure as the money jumps get steeper.
These tournaments are great if you feel like playing when it counts but do not want to waste hours on end before getting at least a minimum payout.
Very often, changes or introductions of new things on poker sites aren't fully supported by your HUD or poker tracking database right away. However, some are faster than others to make sure that support does happen for anything new.
With this in mind, Hold'em Manager 2 this week released Version in Beta, which adds HUD support for Bubble Rush tournaments. The newest release also now supports the fast-fold game Speed on iPoker for clients 16.6.4 or later.  However, currently the support will only work on one table at a time.
While these were the two biggest changes introduced, there were a few others that were also site-specific. On 888poker, an issue was fixed where some no limit hold'em tournaments were being imported as fixed limit tournaments. Additionally, players in Romania now have support for the newly licensed 888poker.ro skin.
Tournament players on Microgaming can rejoice that issues related to some tournaments causing the auto-import of hands to stop working is now resolved.
Additionally, players on PartyPoker who enjoy the hyper-turbo Sit & Go Hero now have better support. Hands will no longer be imported as cash games and the software will also properly detect the correct amount of rake for each game.
If any of these issues were causing you problems, I recommend to upgrade. However, since this is a Beta release, if you do not play these games, you might want to wait for a stable release.
Additionally, if you go ahead and upgrade, it is recommended that you use a new database as a precautionary measure. Hold'em Manager 2's support team recommends this just in case a bug comes up since a Beta release is not as fully tested as a stable one.
If you aren't already using Hold'em Manager 2, give it a shot with a 30-day free trial. Updates such as this one are free for the life of the software, so you will never need to pay more money when new games are released or new poker client updates take place. Check out Hold'em Manager 2 today.
