What Distinguishes Party Poker from Other Poker Rooms

At almost any time you can find a wide range of active tables ranging from $4 no-limit to $1,000 games. There are also more high-limit tables ($2,000 to $5,000 no-limit games), although these are less popular. There are only two types of poker tables: those accommodating six or those accommodating ten players which, at times, can be a bit of an inconvenience. No-limit games ranging from the $4 to $10 no-limit are long ones - only accommodating ten players. Short tables (for six players) are available in $25 no-limit games and higher. The average game level below $25 no-limit is much higher than, for instance, at EuroPoker. On higher limits ($100 no-limit games and up), the game level is quite similar to that of any other poker room.

What Types of Poker to play at Party Poker

Party Poker is one of the few poker rooms where a wide selection of fixed-limit Hold’em tables can be found at almost any time of the day in the range of $0.05/$0.1 to $30/$60 fixed-limit. For higher limits ($50/$100 to $100/$200) you can find active tables, but the choice is less. Pot-limit games are played mostly in the low bet range ($25 pot-limit). The higher stakes game is performed from time to time at one or two tables.

Among other types of Poker, pot-limit Omaha is played very intensely at Party Poker in the range of a $25 to $600 pot-limit. Omaha is also played at higher stakes from time to time. Also, a player can always find a fixed-limit 7 Card Stud game in the range of $0.5/$1 to $5/$10. Although it is rare to find a higher limit game of 7 Card Stud.

Party Poker has so-called Jackpot tables, where players pay a bigger rake, but they have a chance to win a great Jackpot, which is given out if a strong hand of one player ("4 of a kind" constituted by four eights or higher) is beaten by a stronger hand of another player (both pocket cards of each of the 2 players should be included into their combinations). Part of the Jackpot is shared between other players at the table as well. Jackpot tables can be found in Hold'em games of $25 no-limit/pot-limit or higher, which is a relatively low barrier for the possibility of winning a big Jackpot.

Tournaments

Party Poker has a great choice of Sit&Go tournaments with buy-ins starting from $3 to about $215. As Party Poker stopped accepting US players in October 2006, the $530 Sit&Go rarely run.

There are also the so-called Sit&Go Step Challenges, which are usually of no interest to professional players, but may be of interest to those who play for entertainment purposes. A Step Challenge tournament is a series of six, ten-handed tournaments. The idea is simple: a player buys in to any of the six levels and places first, second, or even third in some levels to move up to the next step. Placed further down they can still win a chance to try either the same level or a lower level step again. The winner of step six gets $2,000 and another four players each get a lower prize.

There is a branched structure of Multi-table and Sit&Go satellites for all essential on-line and off-line poker events, including WSOP*.  Every week Party Poker hosts a $300,000 guaranteed tournament and a player can always find satellites to it in the room. With some satellites you can buy in for PartyPoints (bonus points of the room), but there are fewer chances to win prizes. It’s worth mentioning that even large scale tournaments, such as the $300,000 guaranteed tournament, attract many weak players who play at lower skill levels.

Besides FreeRolls, there are many Sit&Go and Multi-table tournaments with low and average buy-ins (from $1 to $22) at almost any time. As a rule, there are tournaments with low buy ins and guaranteed prize pools offered every day. These tournaments enable re-buys. One such tournament is the daily $10,000 guaranteed, for which a player can buy in for only $2.

Interface

An obvious advantage of the poker room is its client program. With an adjustable table size, it can fit any computer screen. The software is very fast and has nearly no glitches. The design and sound effects it employs are also quite nice, both on the eye and ear. All the essential details necessary are bright and well outlined. Despite the bright palette, it’s very safe on the eyes, so no need to worry there. A notifications system has been very well designed to ensure that each player won’t miss their queue if they’re playing several games at a time. The client program also supports PokerTracker and Pokerace stats analyzers.

Deposits and Withdrawals

Deposits and withdrawals are very quick. Party Poker claims the one day norm as the time of withdrawal, but it’s usually performed within less than 12 hours.
