24H POKER REVIEW



24h Poker


 

24h Poker - Many online poker players enjoy playing at rooms with high traffic. Thanks to the sheer number of players they have a greater game selection, they usually offer a wider variety of limits, and their tournaments pay off more. While those benefits aren't to be ignored, sometimes it pays to wander off the beaten path in search of a smaller room. Among those smaller rooms is 24h Poker, the poker arm of a small-scale online casino and sportsbook. Here's a quick overview of the poker room.

24h Poker's setup is most certainly not pretty, but it is thankfully much easier on the eyes than sites like Party Poker thanks to its blue-and-white color scheme. The lobby is about as bare-bones as you can get. Four tabs along the side provide links to tournaments, game rules, the all-important cashier, and 24h's own online casino. The bulk of the screen is taken up with a window listing the cash games currently running, and across the top of this window are tabs that take you to different games. The only truly awkward part of this is that unlike most other online poker rooms, the tournament listings open up in a separate window from the cash games. This isn't a major issue, but it is unnecessary and unusual.

The selection of cash games at 24h Poker is surprisingly diverse. The stand-by games of online poker - limit hold'em, no-limit hold'em, Omaha, and Omaha hi-lo - are all available here. Also available are five-card draw, deuce-to-seven triple draw, seven-card stud, seven-card stud hi-lo, and Soko. For those unfamiliar with the game, Soko is a variant of five-card stud where four cards to a flush and four cards to a straight both make hands - the complete rules of the game are available here. While the player base is not huge, this wide variety of cash games is one of the best things to recommend about 24h. There are usually at least a couple of tables running at different limits, so finding a game to your liking isn't too difficult.

24h also hosts a wide variety of tournaments. Satellites to many medium- to large-scale tournaments at casinos across Europe, such as European Poker Tour events and the Amsterdam Poker Masters, run on a regular basis. The room also hosts its own guaranteed prize pool events, ranging from 1,000 euros all the way up to 60,000 euros. All of these guaranteed prize pool tourneys can be entered either through a direct buy-in or through winning a feeder satellite. Also worth noting is that tournaments are run in every game that 24h makes available as a cash game - so if you've ever wanted to play in a five-card draw tournament, this is one of the few places online where you can do it. Finally, 24h runs freerolls constantly. Every day brings a different game with real cash prizes to the top finishers. These tournaments can be quite crazy, as the blinds progress quickly, but they're also a lot of fun to play. One word of warning if you decide to play a tournament here: the software doesn't always properly balance tables, so you may end up stuck at a 4-handed table when you should be playing at a full table.

While the software isn't pretty, the game selection at 24h is usually decent and the players are known for being hyper-aggressive. This can lead to a lot of easy money if you're patient and can wait for a real hand. There is also a bad beat jackpot available which is hit on a pretty consistent basis, and is available for all the games spread in the card room - full details are available here. If you're looking for a place where you can play different games or where you can play against a different pool of players, and you don't mind sub-par software, 24h Poker is worth checking out.
