Top 3 Poker Sites

March 29th, 2011 Comments off

We’ve re-shuffled our top three USA poker sites. From time to time we try to give a little recognition to the top poker sites we play at.

PokerHost remains our top site with their great software and an amazing 200% match sign up bonus up to $2000. PokerHost operates on the Merge Poker Network and offers a bad beat jackpot and great software features like deal it twice and rabbit hunting. They also offer a monthly reload bonus after you clear your first deposit bonus. If you haven’t tried PokerHost we highly recommend them. See the full details on the PokerHost Bonus.

Poker4ever has moved into our #2 position. Poker4ever is a smaller site on the Everleaf network, but offers some juicy games. You wont find big multi-table tournaments at Poker4ever, but you find loose ring games up to $.50/$1. Poker4ever also gets some accolades for having the easiest poker bonuses to clear. Clear $1 of your bonus for just $1.20 paid in fee’s or rake. See our Poker4ever Review for full details.

Absolute Poker remains in the top 3. Absolute Poker has great site traffic and great banking options including eChecks. Depositing with eChecks is the best option for USA residents.

Huge Overlay on CEREUS

We have a great value in a multi table tournament on the CEREUS Poker Network. The 50K guaranteed is starting now and there is over a $20k overlay. Late registration is available until 7:45 PM EST. At the start of the tournament there were only 147 players for a $200 buy in. That’s only $29,400 in the prize pool but it is a 50K guaranteed.

The poker sites on the CEREUS Network include Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet. If you need to fund your account both are poker sites that accept echecks so you can get your deposit approved quickly and take advantage of this opportunity.

Want Super Fast Tournaments?

February 11th, 2011 Comments off

If you like playing sit’n go’s and want to play at fast blind levels look for ultra turbo tournaments. In ultra turbo tournaments the blind levels increase every 2-3 minutes, speeding up the tournament. Many online poker sites offer turbo multi tournaments, but if your looking for fast sit’n go’s we have a few recommendations for you.

The top two USA online poker site we recommend for ultra turbo tournaments are Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet. They offer ultra turbo tournaments where the blind levels increase every 2.5 minutes.

We really like ultra turbo tourneys when playing head’s up, but will usually only play turbo tournaments (5 minute blind increases) when playing at a full seated table. When playing at a full seated table (6-10 players) in an ultra turbo the blinds go up almost to fast.

At Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet ultra turbo tournaments are offered heads up, 4, 6 and 9 seated. The selection is very good with buy-ins ranging from $.10 to $550 and everything in between. A great advantage to playing at these two sites is that the fee’s for ultra turbo tourneys is very low, lower than standard sit’n go’s. For example a $35 buy-in only charges $1.50 in fee’s. That’s only 5% of the buy-in verses the standard 10%.

Site traffic for ultra turbo tournaments is very good here because of the low fee’s and great selection. For more information on these two great US poker sites, see the full Absolute Poker Review and Ultimate Bet Review. You wont be disappointed with these two sites. They have great software, a bad beat jackpot and both offer deposit by eCheck.

Quick Deposit Instant eChecks

February 10th, 2011 Comments off

Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet have changed their eCheck processor to Quick Deposit. They now use the same processor as the USA online poker giant FullTilt.

We feel this is a good move for AP and UB as Quick Deposit is a premier processor. The process of making a deposit by eCheck becomes even easier and the eCheck limits are raised with the move. This also allows withdraws by eCheck that are back in your account generally within 3 business days.

Have we stated many times, eChecks are the best way for USA residents to deposit to poker sites. They are free of charge, fast, easy and the funds are available immediately for use.

See a full listing of poker sites that accept eChecks and start playing online poker today.
