PokerStars Launch DUEL Heads-Up App

The world's biggest and most popular online poker operation, PokerStars are always on their toes and when it comes to innovation, the site is indeed second to none. The PokerStars mobile client was launched what seems like ages ago, and the mobile side of the business has presented other opportunities since. Inspired by the open-face Chinese Poker craze which has swept live poker rooms and casinos everywhere, the site recently launched an app called DUEL, which is based on Texas Holdem and features a turn-based structure. The new mobile product is currently undergoing testing and as such, it is only available for Norwegian players at least for the time being. DUEL is aimed at mobile phones, covering the Android as well as the Apple segments of the market, but apparently, it will not be available for tablets. The app will offer real-money games.
Register a PokerStars account right now and make use of their new DUEL mobile app as soon as it becomes available for everyone!

The launch of the DUEL app is an obvious attempt on the part of PokerStars to introduce poker to people who enjoy social games but who haven't necessarily taken an interest in poker yet.
DUEL is aimed at a demographic with a busy lifestyle, potential players who want to be able to jump in and out of games at a whim, while challenging their friends and generally living the poker lifestyle without sacrificing anything from their current lifestyle for it.
Once the beta testing concludes in Norway, the app will become widely available, although exactly what countries it will first come to is currently unknown. One of the PokerStars pros who have worked on the app is apparently Chris Moneymaker, who says the sort of games it brings fit well into his hectic lifestyle.
Sign up to PokerStars right now and make sure you're among the first to give the DUEL app a go when it becomes available.
