- site info:
is one of many poker rooms owned and operated by the Swedish based
Ongame group. It is a fast and good looking poker room with
excellent tools for the serious player, like easy to use statistics
and player notes. HoldemPoker.com is a good choice for Mac or
Linux-users, who can play the java version without any special
installs. HoldemPoker.com offers great statistical analysis of your
game. Their traffic is concentrated to the Holdem and tournament
section. A large proportion of the games are short-handed tables
with 5 or 6 players and the rake is slightly higher than industry
standard. Real money player statistics - July, 2006: 4,400-4,800
ring game players at peak hours, 14,000-17,000 tournament players at
Software and Graphic:
HoldemPoker.com has high-end software with its clean, sleek
graphics, multi platform compatibility and reliability in uptime,
etc. On the negative side, many players do not like the
"playability" on HoldemPoker.com, as it does not lend itself well to
multi-table play (buttons too close, easy to time out, hard to see
winning hand, etc) The software is available as both Java applet and
as standard Windows download. The Java version is a great feature
for Linux and Mac users who otherwise need a Windows emulator. The
Java version is also for certain users who cannot download programs
to the computer. The statistics functionality on your played hands
in the various games is good. The lobby information is a little
tricky to use, as you need to click on each table to get the full
statistics. Recently added in the software update autumn 2005 is a
lobby chat where all players logged in can share thoughts. The
software allows players the option to create private tournaments
where you can choose your own buy-in, starting time etc.
Ring Games Traffic:
The traffic at peak hours is currently 4,400-4,800 real money ring
games players (July, 2006). The high limit tables in particular have
grown very much since last year.
The traffic at the tournaments at peak hours reaches currently
between 14,000-17,000 real money players (July, 2006).
The rake is on par with the industry with 5% of the pot up to a
maximum of $3.
HoldemPoker.com had a system that awards points to players based on
the rake of the hands they participate in. The points can be used to
collect various bonuses.
