Full review of Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt Poker

The software is easy to use and the play is fast. The hand history is graphic--the best in the business. The sign-up bonus is generous and pays out in $20 increments. The game variety is good. Most action is in Texas Holdem and Omaha Holdem, but there are other games, including stud and HORSE. The traffic is very good, peaking around 65,000. With so much traffic, you can use table selection to find some soft games. The multi-table and sit-&-go tournament structures are good. Tournaments are varied and plentiful.

Full review of Party Poker

Party Poker

PartyPoker is a high-traffic site with numbers approaching 100,000 in peak times, providing a treasure of fairly soft players in a good variety of standard games. Plenty of multi-table tournaments start throughout the day, sit-&-go tournaments fill up rapidly, and you can find a seat in a cash game immediately. Tournament buy-ins fit all bankrolls, and satellites are always running. The software is fast and you can turn off the odd characters to simplify your table.

Full review of Ultimate Bet

Ultimate Bet

UltimateBet offers a wide range of games with a wide range of competition levels. The software is designed to facilitate playing poker online. Using options, you have more control than usual over the look and feel of the playing tables. Tournament fields are smaller than those at the highest-traffic sites. The tournament structures are good. Total traffic for tournaments and cash games places UltimateBet in the top five online poker rooms. The current sign-up bonus is 100% up to $500.

Full review of Pacific Poker

Pacific Poker

Pacific Poker's best quality is its abundance of players who like to gamble. Pacific is related to Casino On Net, which provides the poker-for-fun traffic. The software is fairly good, but Pacific limits you to one open table. The tournament structures are faster than ideal, but loose players succumb to heavy blinds ideally fast. Traffic is good. The sign-up bonus is not great, but by playing, you get bonus points redeemable for cash.

Full review of Absolute Poker

Absolute Poker

Most of the action at Absolute Poker is on low-stakes, 6-max Holdem tables. The cash games are usually loose with a high percentage of players staying for more cards. The software's features are good and you can download table skins to improve the graphics. Most tournaments are Texas Holdem, with frequent freerolls. Support is by email only but responses are usually quick. The sign-up bonus and weekly reload bonuses are generous.

Ultimate Bet

Tournament Structure  UltimateBet has some of the best structures for both multi-table tournaments and sit-and-go tournaments. In both kinds of tournements, the blinds increase slowly enough that you do not have to be going all-in early on.

Tournament Structure  The multi-table tournament structures are some of the best online. Tournaments with buy-ins under $50 have $1,500 in starting chips and 12-minute intervals. The $50 to $300 buy-ins start with $2,500 in chips and have 15-minute levels. The "Aces" tournaments have 20-minute levels and $5,000 in starting chips. Sit-&-go tournaments of $30 buy-in or less have $1,500 starting chips and 8-minute levels. Larger buy-ins have $2,000 starting chips and 10-minute levels. Multi-table tournaments set maximums on the number of entrants.

Poker Stars

Tournament Structure  The multi-table blind structure is fair in smaller buy-in tournaments and good in larger buy-in tournaments. The smaller have 15-minute intervals for blind increases, the larger buy-ins, over $200, 20-minute intervals. Sit & Go tournament start with $1,500 in chips and the blinds escalate every 10 minutes. The blinds do not increase so fast that you are forced into all-in moves early on. If you win more than one satellite to an event, you can convert the extra wins into entries for other tournaments.

Full review of Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt Poker

Tournament Structure  Full Tilt has a good multi-table tournament structure with 1,500 starting chips in standard tournaments. High-stakes and deep-stack tournaments start with more. Blind escalation is reasonably slow, except, of course, in turbo tournaments. The sit-&-go tournaments start with 1,500 chips, and blind escalation is good.

Bodog

Tournament Structure  In multi-table tournaments with smaller buy-ins, starting chips are $1,000 and the blinds increase every 12 minutes. With larger buy-ins, starting chips are $1,500 and the blinds increase every 15 minutes. In both cases, there are enough blind levels to allow skillful play without being forced all-in early in the tournament.

Full review of Party Poker

Party Poker

Tournament Structure  Early in 2006, PartyPoker improved its structures for multi-table tournaments and sit-&-go tournaments. The starting chips in multi-table tournaments were increased from 1,000 to 3,000, and a blind level was added to slow blind escalation in mid-tournament. The starting chips in sit-&-go tournaments were increased from 800 or 1,000 to 2,000, and the blind escalation was changed from every 10 hands to every 10 minutes. These changes made PartyPoker tournaments friendlier to better players.

Full review of Pacific Poker

Pacific Poker

Tournament Structure  The tournament structures are fast. The blind increases are moderate but the intervals are short, typically eight or ten minutes. Multi-table "Nitro" tournaments have intervals of three or five minutes. Sit-&-go Nitros have intervals of 2 or three minutes.

Full review of InterPoker

InterPoker

Tournament Structure  Tournament structures are rather fast and steep, forcing end-game all-in plays sooner rather than later. The lobby's tournament information is incomplete, omitting chip counts, blind levels, and intervals; so, choosing a tournament can be a blind adventure. The "single-table tournaments" have $1,000 starting chips and fast levels, which go up every 8 to 12 hands.
