PokerRoom is one of the first online poker rooms. It launched in 1999
with play money tables only, but has served up real money games since
2001 and is now one of the largest online poker rooms. PokerRoom.com is
considered the 3rd largest online poker room, and one of the fastest
growing poker rooms on the internet. PokerRoom has the unique
distinction of offering all of its games without any download required.
This policy of no-download means that you can play on any platform
(including the often-ignored Mac and Linux computers) via the web from
anywhere you have an Internet connection with no need to install
software. They still have a complete downloadable client for Windows
users, which offers slightly smoother gameplay.
PokerRoom.com. It is easy, safe and secure with prompt payouts. Lots of
poker games and limits - try Texas Hold 'em, Omaha, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card
Draw, casino games or big poker tournaments. PokerRoom.com is the first
online poker site ever to be accredited with the eCogra seal of
approval. This means that eCOGRA considers our games to be fair, that we
operate honestly and behave responsibly, that monetary deposits are safe
here and that winnings are paid out in a timely manner.
Games - Texas Hold'em games are available in limit games of $0.25-$0.50,
$0.50-$1, $1-$2, $3-$6, $5-$10, $10-20 and $25-$50. No Limit and Pot
Limit games are available for most of the buy-ins as well. Besides other

As for tournaments, there are more than enough to keep a full-time
player busy, and guarantee weekly jackpots ranging from $4,000 to $50,000.
Poker School: Welcome to the PokerRoom.com poker school. Here you can
try out a few lessons that should help improve your poker game.
Poker Room offers the usual suite of poker games: limit, pot-limit and
no-limit Hold�em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud, and 7 Card Stud
Hi/Lo. (*One thing needs to be clarified about their NLHE tables.
PokerRoom has an unusual method of staking the NLHE games. The tables
listed as �$0.25-$0.50 NL� actually have blinds of $.10-25. The
�$0.25-$.50� refer to the minimum bets for the first two rounds and the
second two rounds, respectively � similar to how fixed-limit Hold�em
stakes are listed. This applies to all NLHE tables. For example, the
tables I mainly played were �1-$2 NL,� where the blinds were $.50 and
$1, with $1 minimum bets pre-flop and on the flop, then $2 minimum bets
on the turn and on the river. This did not change my play much, but took
a little getting used to while searching for tables. I know of no other
poker room, online or offline, that uses this convention.) They even
have shorthanded 5-max tables as well as 1-on-1 tables.
Their tournaments consist of limit and no-limit Hold�em games ranging
from $5+1 up to $100+8 -- from multi-table tourneys consistently
attracting hundreds of players per event to sit-and-gos for tables of 10
players each. There is the occasional �other� poker game tourney. Last I
checked, there was one pot-limit Omaha Hi/Lo multi-table tourney.
Private Ring Game Table: PokerRoom also offers players the ability to
create private ring game tables. Any of their poker games at virtually
any stakes may be easily set up quickly with their simple-to-follow
In addition to poker, you can convert your account money into �Casino
Chips� and play other casino games via the Internet Explorer browser.
Popular games such as Blackjack, Let It Ride, Video Poker, Roulette,
Slots, Craps, Baccarat and Pai Gow attract hundreds of players going for
some nice payouts ranging from the thousands to the tens of thousands
for the highest jackpot prizes.
Player Traffic 8.5/10: Up to 7,000 cash game and 30,000 tournament
players can be found playing simultaneously at peak times. The number of
higher limit tables has also grown recently.
Quality of Players 8/10: With their recent growth in player numbers
there has been a large influx of new recreational players meaning that
the average skill level of players at Poker Room is slightly lower than
at other poker rooms. This makes it a good place to play if winning
money is your objective.
Software 7.5/10: You have the option of a downloadable version or a Java
version that requires no download. The Software can at times perform
slowly, especially the Java version. The graphics are pleasant and easy
to look at for long periods and there are comprehensive statistics
available to track how well you are doing.
Bonuses and Promotions 7.5/10: There is a signup bonus of 50% up to a
maximum of $100 and a wide variety of other promotions such as player
points that can be used towards tournaments or bonuses for a Royal Flush.
Customer Support 9/10: Poker Room offers a wide range of support
including phone, email and live chat. The quality of all support is
excellent but sometimes the email support can be a little slow.
