Ongame Poker Room Reviews:
Two unique things that that I like about the Ongame poker offers, is the ability to color-code your opponents by a rating system that you assign and the availability of play money sit-n-go tables.
You can assign descriptions to different color icons on the software, like maniac or fish and tag your opponents with the color icon you have assigned. This is a quick way to see the types of players at the table with you when you first sit own.
Of course in Ongame Online poker rooms you can also keep detailed notes about your opponents. These are both accomplished by choosing the opponents seat.
The Ongame poker lobbies are well designed with tabs of which you can choose between ring games and tournament action. Once you choose, there are more tabs for each game and these can even be tabbed further to split the limit and pot-limit/no-limit action.
Ongame online poker tables can be sorted by stakes and number of players at the table. By selecting a table one time, a list of players at the table and the statistics; such as average pot, hands per hour and flop percentage, are displayed to the right.
The Ongame poker action buttons at the tables are at the bottom of the screen in the middle and the amount in the pot is displayed on the table. The action is easy to follow as a yellow outline surrounds the box of the player who's turn it is to act.
When you sit down at a table in Ongame online poker, you must select a "sit in" button on the screen to actually join the game. There are play money tables running at all times so you can learn the software and practice your game before joining a real money game.
