Absolute Poker is a medium sized room with a very good table layout. When you first enter AP you are presented with a pretty standard lobby. There are tabs for the games and within each game tab are tabs for the the subtype. There is a nice filtering option to also help you zero in on the tables of interest.

Absolute Poker Lobby

For example, the Hold’Em page for example shows all the Hold’Em cash games. You get to see not only the stakes, but the number of players and waiters, hands per minute, average pot, and players per flop. A couple things of note are the six player tables and the full size tables are only nine players (seven for Stud), rather than the 10 player tables found at many other online poker sites. Look closely at the table statistics in the image below and you should notice low percentage of players per flop as well as high hand per minute rates. What this means is fast tight (well, maybe not real tight, but tighter than many) poker, especially on the six player tables.

Absolute Poker 6-Seat NLHE Table

Absolute features a very intriguing bad-beat jackpot. As you can see in the images above it was $461K when these shots were captured. This jackpot pays every few days.  In a nutshell if you suffer a bad-beat of quad 8’s or better, both the beater and the beaten hands must use both hole cards to qualify. The beaten gets the biggest share, the beater gets a smaller share, and the remainder of the non-sitting out players at the table share the rest. See AP for details. The down side is that players will call down hands that they may fold at a normal table, which results in more suck-outs.

    Lots of freerolls. Reward points can be used to buy into tournaments. Good sit n goes, 15K in chips.

    customer service is horrible any site with no live support or phone is in my opinion just trying to hide. Software is excellent though.

    Play the micro no limit games. The players are all fish.

    The 0.50/1.00 limit game also has a lot a fish, but too many calling stations who can suck out. Be carful.

    The 1/2 limit games are much better played. 2 or 3 preflop callers/raisers. Not too many calling stations.

    The tournaments are a lot of fun. The $10 & $20 sit n goes are pretty easy to place in the money if you have patience and disciplin.

    The only thing I don’t like about this site is that the players seem to be afraid to open up a new table. For example, you might find a bunch of full tables with the waiting list being 3 or 4 deep while several tables of the same limit/size sit empty. This is knock on the players at AP, not the site itself, which I find among the best.

    The first place I played at was pacific poker and I did great but I didn’t like the gui. This was a couple years ago. So I looked around a lot and tried other places, but I kept losing. I still had the majority of my money at pacific, but then one day I happend across AP and loved the place. The gui felt right and so I moved my pacific money to AP and have been there for about a year.I have no complaints. The user interface is easy. The graphics are nice. The controls are simple. Depositing through neteller is a piece of cake.
