Currently the twelfth largest poker network, the Boss Poker rooms are an active, medium sized network. There are always plenty of games to choose from around the clock. They offer tables in three different currencies, the US Dollar, Euro and Pound.
Boss Media Poker Rooms & Reviews.
The lobby is designed along the lines of many poker rooms with tabs across the top to choose from Texas holdem, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Draw, single table tournaments and multi table tournaments.
You may then sort the available tables by stakes, number of players, limits, wait, flop percentage, hands per hour and average pot size. Once you join a table, the amount in the pot is displayed on the table at all times and the action controls are in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
The action buttons are rather small and require a little practice to get used to. They use a slider for the no-limit games if you want to bet more than the minimum. The software is available in a free download and for the professional players out there, you can play up to five tables at the same time.
If you are just starting to play online or are learning the software, there are play money tables available as well as micro limit tables with stakes as low as .05/.10.
Limit holdem is available with blinds from .10/.20 to 100/200, pot-limit holdem from .05/.10 to 10/20 and no-limit holdem from .05/.10 to 10/20. 7 Card Stud is spread in limit with blinds from .10/.20 to 30/60 and 5 Card Draw is available in limit from .50/1 to 20/40. Surprisingly, Boss Poker does not offer Omaha or Omaha/8, but they are one of the few places online where you can play 5 Card Draw.
Single table tournaments (Sit-n-gos) are available 24 hours a day in two, five and ten player tables with buy-ins ranging from 1.10 up to 109. They are only available at this time in no-limit holdem.
There are over 30 multi table tournaments every day with buy-ins from 1.10 to 109. The majority of the tournaments have buy-ins of less than 20 so there are numerous options for the low limit player. They also have satellites available to many of the large land based tournaments with buy-ins up to 530.
Overall, the Boss Poker network has nothing other than the availability of 5 Card Draw to make them stand out from the competition, but there isn't anything to place them behind the competition either. There are always many games running and I expect them to grow just as quickly as the other major networks.
