Tournaments spread Edit

Tons of scheduled tournaments as well as sit-n-go tournaments. Various buyins and games.

Quality of opposition Edit

Notably better than average at an online site.

Customer Service / Cashout Issues Edit

None, yet.

Software Issues Edit

Overall, a below average interface.

Pros Cons
  • Players cards are shown large
  • Can select different "backgrounds" for table screens
  • Ability to leave notes about players
  • Neat "mini-view" that shrinks a table down into a control bar that takes up very little space.
  • Nice "player stats" feature gives you details about your stats at the table you're at.
  • In chat box, different colors indicate different types of people talking
  • Software rotates tables you join so that your seat is at the bottom
  • Player cards are shown "overlapping" so it's harder to see the "back" one.
  • Board and opponent cards are shown very tiny
  • No avatars of any kinds; you're playing against empty chairs
  • Hard to read players names if they are over about ten letters long; they extend off their "chairs"
  • Only indicator of whose turn it is: their chair gets slightly lighter colored. Almost unnoticeable.
  • No way to see details about a player; they are identified by country, not city or state (so practically everyone is "representing the USA")
  • difficult to use chat box with "disappearing entry bar"
  • hard to see chip stacks
  • awkward lobby interface uses "web pages inside window" which makes it sluggish and hard to use (fewer menus, more "click on links" stuff)
  • software rotates tables you join so that your seat is at the bottom; can be disorienting
  • the "preselect action" buttons are difficult to determine if they are on or not: they only have a tiny "light" on them
