Best platforms for Poker


Recommended Posts

Hi :welcome to PL. Sorry for late response.

Recently I've only played on Poker Stars, 888Poker and Party Poker.  Some sites closed recently because the Microgaming platform closed, and some others are in the process of moving to different ones, so not actually sure what they are using at the moment.  Likes of Grosvenor.  I used to recommend sticking with the ones which are an arm of betting sites, but don't think there are many left now.

Hello, can you recommend any online platform in order to play poker? Thank you

Hey,

I used to be playing 7 days a week, and started years ago on PokerStars, Paradise Poker, Ultimate Bet, Full tilt, Piggs Peak etc. My feeling is that online is dangerous. It is very easy to cheat, and say what they like, the various sites are clueless on how to stop it. Two things I would say. If you play a game like PLO, then you better have the right mindset for it. Big swings, and very volatile. You go from HIGH to LOW all day, and it's a game where you are going to get run over often. For me not worth playing online because you can get sandwiched between a low double suited wheel and a high double par hand easily (you get too much multi player action).

If I was playing online, I would want to play the same few guys HEADS-UP on a regular basis (and holdem). If I know I am a better player, making better reads, better folds, with better pre-flop discipline, I don't want others getting in the way. I don't mind losing to someone 2 times in every 10 meetings because in the long run I'm crushing it. And when you lose, don't steal their thunder or deny them the enjoyment of winning .... this way it's just a loan ... the cash comes back home.

Also, there is no collusion heads-up !

For me nothing worse than losing a huge hand to the table donkey in a live game, and then watching him donk your cash off to everyone else except you ! You sit there smiling through the aggravation, playing a game at a snails pace, seething inside, while this clown spews chips.   Heads up reduces this scenario to zero.

Can anyone recommend a poker site to play tournaments for real money please?

I’ve tried 888.com, but virtually each one I’ve looked at has rebuys with a time limit that seems to keep increasing, so they can go on forever.

Likewise with Party Poker, they have rebuys up to a certain level, and you can physically see that tournaments are still open (months after starting) showing no players, as the level has never been reached, but they’ve ran out of players. Therefore the winnings have never been paid out.

I’m just looking to play tournaments that actually have the chance to finish.

Any input would be welcome.

Thanks

Hi Avi :welcome

I would think you'll find something to suit on PokerStars as they have such a wide variety of games and a large pool of players. The better tournaments can go on for a long time though so be prepared for a long haul.

I think we have a few players here who use Sky Poker too, though I can't vouch for how well the games run.

@LIKE2FISH where are you playing mostly these days?

Main site is Party Poker, had some software issues previous but has been stable for a while now.

I use to have an error message pop up and it would cause my laptop to crash... Not ideal when I play generally 6 tables and across multiple sites... but all has been good for a while! Uninstall software and reinstalled most of the time but all has been good now!
