has been a favourite site since I first began playing there. It
is a well run and easy to use poker room.
The site is one of my top recommendations for those new to online
poker, or who want a new room to enjoy fresh challenges at. The
primary focus is on Texas Hold’em with most of the play found at
the lower buy-in levels although
do still have a number of higher buy-in players regularly attending.
I play at
when I fancy a low buy-in Sit and Go tournament or to take part in
their guaranteed tournaments that often see good overlays.
Despite being one of the smaller sites it is conscientiously run
by the support team. I recently had a cash-out error issue (my
mistake) which was sorted by their excellent email support within 24 hours between Saturday
afternoon and Sunday.
is still an emerging site but, as part of the Everleaf Gaming Network,
they commonly attract enough real money players during peak hours to
provide plenty of opposition to test your skills.
The last six months has seen a steady increase of real money ring game
players. With such good care taken
of their customers and well proportioned tournament structures,
looks to be a site that will gain ground quickly.
offer a limited selection of Texas Hold'em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo games
plus some 7 Card Stud action, all played in various standard fixed limit,
pot limit and no limit betting structures.
From the lobby
have one of the cleanest lobbies around. Eight clearly marked side tabs
let players select any of the four poker ring game formats on offer
(Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo and 7 Card Stud). They can also select Multi
Table Tournaments, Sit and Go Tournaments, Steps, (entry to major events
via a series of SnG's) and a very useful Most Popular tab which
takes players to where the ring game action is.
Three major horizontal tabs select Fixed Limit, No Limit/Pot Limit and
Practice chips in the ring game selection and quickly filter games in
the Tournament, Sit and Go and Steps areas.
Each of the ring game and tournament selections can be further sorted
by sub tabs to other requirements.
Sit and Go tournaments
Sit and go players will find many games in the $0.11 to $ 5.50 buy-in
range beginning at regular intervals plus a number of higher buy-ins
taking place as well. These games are all no limit Texas Hold'em
and are most popular on six seat tables.
The scheduled tournaments are well attended with a good mix of
satellites and regular games to choose from. Typically their $700
guaranteed NLH attracts over 50 players at a $5.50 buy-in, and
higher buy-in players will go for the $4,000 guaranteed where up
to 100 players will commit the $27.50 entry. There are plenty of
$1.10, $2.20 and $3.30 regular tournaments on offer too.
The total player numbers at
cannot compete with the major sites and it is right that by limiting
the number and choice of games they do not try to do that; this
means, what is on offer is just enough. They have found their place
and work well at improving it.
This is not a site that requires players submitting several hours to
tournament play only to bubble, it is one that just gets on with
it and works.
Cash table play begins with blind levels at $0.05/0.10 with plenty
of action on these and tables up to $3/6. As standard the best
attended games happen at the Hold'em tables but those wanting to
play Omaha will find good company.
At the table
The table layout is simple, quick to follow and has a choice of
avatars to represent the players. Action buttons allow players
to place bets at pre-set amounts either by a flat call or pot
size raise; they may also use the slider to increase bets, or
may enter any bet amount in a text window (provided limits allow).
Common check boxes allow players to sit out, fold to any bet and
auto-post their blinds. In-play check boxes give players the
opportunity to pre-set a betting action if they make an early
An information area gives player stats, plus has dedicated tabs
for player notes, table options and support.
The table dealer avatar can be changed for one of four models whose
commentary at first seems a little too much, but players soon
appreciate the clear call when it is their time for action. The
countdown timer encourages players to make their decisions promptly
keeping the action flowing.
