Room Review:

Play Aces is the new name for Players Only poker and Sportsbook poker, the two rooms merged on April 15 2010 to form Play Aces, a massive new US friendly poker room which looks set to rival Poker Stars and Full Tilt for supremacy in the online poker world.

Players only and Sportsbook
had established themselves as major rooms on the Cake poker network but Play Aces has moved from Cake to the Merge Poker Network which is widely regarded as one of the fishiest networks around. Unlike most poker rooms, Play Aces and the Merge Network is open to U.S. and Canadian Players.

Play Aces offers incredibly loose games with soft competition and lots of action. Lots of the player base comes from sportsbooks and casinos on the same network and a significant proportion of the players are gamblers with little or no poker experience and are very easy to beat. This is especially true at the lower and middle limits.

The software is state of the art as it was developed much later than the software which is used by other poker rooms. The graphics are fantastic and the gameplay is smooth and fast. Multi-Table capabilities are unlimited meaning you can play as many tables as you want at the same time. The software has unique features such as enabling players to show one card when their opponents have folded and the ability to run it twice. This means that if everyone is all in, you can opt to have two outcomes for the same hand by dealing the remaining community cards twice. The Merge Poker Network also offers a bad beat jackpot with the biggest bad beat jackpot in online poker history being won here.

Game selection is good although the majority of games that run are No-Limit Hold’em. Play Aces offers a large selection of tournaments with daily, weekly and monthly guarantees. At unpopular times you can find significant overlay in some of the multi table tournaments. The biggest tournament is the $50,000 guaranteed which takes place every Sunday., the rakeback professionals, offering up to 60% rakeback
