Absolute Poker is now closed and not processing player withdrawal.
One of the fastest growing online poker rooms online is Absolute Poker with over 9,000 simultaneous players at peak hours.
With the aggressive sign up bonus and easy to use software, this growth should continue. Of course the benefit to you is that you will never have to worry about finding a game at your limits with this many players at Absolute Poker.
Absolute Poker offers a free download of their software, play money tables to practice and micro limit tables starting at .02/.04. I like sites that offer micro limit tables because they allow you to play for real money while you are learning the game and/or before moving to higher levels without breaking the bank and forcing you out of your comfort zone.
The Absolute Poker lobby is user friendly and makes it easy to find the best online poker game, whether you like Texas Holdem, Omaha High, Omaha Hi Lo, 8 or Better, 7 Card Stud ,7 Card Stud, Hi Lo 8 or Better, Tournament No-Limit Games or Pot-Limit Games.
You can sort the columns by number of players and buy in amount. The actual Absolute Poker playing area is attractive and the action buttons are grouped together in the lower right-hand corner.
In the no-limit online poker games, the tool used to place a larger bet is a handy bar or slider that displays the amount of your bet as you move it with your mouse. The bet amounts are clearly shown in front of each player and the amount in the pot is displayed at all times above the table.
You are able to chat with the other online poker players at the table by using the chat box in the lower left hand corner and you can keep detailed notes on your opponents by right clicking on an opponent, which brings up a box for your comments.
In online ring game action, Absolute Poker offers Texas Holdem in limit from .02/.04 up to 50/100 and no-limit action with blinds from .10/.25 to 5/10. Omaha high only, Omaha/8, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud high/low are offered in limit ranging from .02/.04 to 15/30 and in pot-limit/no-limit also.
There are always Texas Holdem games at many levels available with action in the other online poker games being sporadic. They also offer heads up matches ranging in limits from .25/.50 to 25/50.
Beyond the sign up bonus, probably the best reason to join Absolute Poker today is the 20 daily free roll tournaments available. Where else can you receive up to 20 chances every day to win absolutely free money?
In addition to the free rolls, they have multi-table poker tournaments running around the clock, with buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $109 and sit-n-go's ranging from .60 to $215. There is a $10,000 guaranteed multi-table online poker tournament every Thursday and of course, World Series of Poker main event satellites.
