2 – Straight Flush

4 – Rumah Penuh
5 – Siram
6 – Lurus
7 – Three of a Kind
8 – Dua Pasang
9 – Pasangkan
10 – Kartu tinggi

Pemain dengan kartu poker peringkat tertinggi menang.

Tangan Poker

Tidak jarang dua pemain memiliki kartu poker dengan peringkat tertinggi. Kami akan menjelaskan bagaimana pemenang ditentukan dalam situasi tertentu nanti di artikel.

Sebagai aturan umum (poker), bagaimanapun, kartu yang lebih tinggi mengalahkan kartu yang lebih rendah di sebagian besar situasi terikat. Jika pemain memiliki kartu dengan nilai yang sama, maka pot dibagikan.

Dari daftar 10 tangan poker ini, Anda bisa dibilang menghapus setengah dari mereka baik karena kelangkaannya (Royal Flush, Straight Flush atau Four of a Kind) atau karena kurangnya kekuatan mereka untuk menang melawan meja lawan (Pair, High Kartu).

Namun, kami akan menjelaskan setiap kartu poker secara rinci untuk memberikan gambaran lengkap tetapi memikirkan yang penting dalam peringkat dan memperkenalkan Anda pada aturan poker penting.

Royal Flush

Raksasa dari semua tangan poker.

Nomor satu dalam daftar tangan poker.

Sama tak terkalahkannya seperti Vladimir Putin dalam pemilihan presiden.

Tangan terdiri dari Ace, King, Queen, Jack dan Sepuluh dari jenis yang sama.

Kelangkaannya berarti Anda bisa memainkan jutaan tangan poker dan tidak pernah bisa membuat Royal Flush.

Ini lebih mungkin dilihat sebagai perangkat plot yang lemah oleh penulis skenario yang malas daripada di meja poker online.

Tetap saja, itu perlu ada dalam daftar karena itu adalah Raja Bukit tetapi jangan berharap untuk melihatnya dalam waktu dekat.

Peluang Royal Flush adalah 0,0032% di Texas Hold’em yang dalam uang sungguhan setara dengan peluang 30.939 banding 1.

Straight Flush

Hampir sama langka dengan Royal Flush ketika Anda bermain poker adalah Straight Flush (kadang-kadang disebut sebagai running flush).

Ini terdiri dari lima kartu berurutan dengan jenis yang sama.

Jadi, misalnya, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 dari jenis yang sama. Straight Flush tertinggi adalah King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9 dari jenis yang sama sedangkan yang terendah adalah 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace serupa dari jenis yang sama.

Straight Flush hampir tidak jarang (kira-kira sepuluh kali lebih umum) sebagai kerabat kerajaannya tetapi peluang untuk mencapainya masih cukup tipis.

Peluang Straight Flush adalah 0,0279% di Texas Hold’em yang dalam odds desimal setara dengan peluang 3.589 banding 1.

Four Of A Kind

Sebuah kiasan umum dalam film poker melihat satu pemain mengungkapkan tangan empat Raja hanya untuk dikalahkan oleh empat Aces.

Meskipun motif ini klise, itu menjelaskan dengan rapi kartu poker Four of a Kind.

Jelas hanya ada 14 Four of a Kind dalam satu pak kartu sehingga tidak sulit untuk membayangkan betapa sulitnya memiliki empat dari peringkat yang sama di tangan Anda (apalagi dua pemain memiliki tangan ini saat pertarungan).

Namun, ini jauh lebih umum daripada dua tangan pertama di atas dan peluang Four of a Kind adalah 0,168% di Texas Hold’em yang dalam peluang pecahan sama dengan peluang 594 banding 1.

Full House

Sekarang kita sampai ke tangan yang bisa dicapai dengan serius dalam poker. Sebuah rumah penuh adalah tiga kartu dengan satu peringkat dan dua kartu dengan peringkat berbeda… ..membuat rumah penuh!

Ini adalah peringkat dari set tiga yang penting dalam menentukan pemenang antara dua rumah penuh – peringkat pasangan yang lebih tinggi tidak relevan (kecuali jika nilainya sama).

Mengingat frekuensi yang jauh lebih tinggi, Full house akan muncul di tangan Anda, menilai dinamika meja selalu bermanfaat karena ada kemungkinan pemain lain akan memiliki kartu yang sama.

Anda biasanya dapat menyimpulkan ini dari pola taruhan dan tekstur papan.

Secara relatif, ini masih cukup jarang karena kemungkinan memiliki Full house adalah 2,60% di Texas Hold’em yang setara dengan mendukung pemenang 33/1 di arena pacuan kuda.

Peluang tepatnya adalah 35,7 banding 1.

Menyiram

Salah satu pertanyaan paling umum tentang tangan poker adalah ‘Apakah Full House mengalahkan Flush?’

Jawabannya hanya iya.

Tetapi mudah untuk melihat dari mana kebingungan itu berasal karena peluang untuk mendapatkan kedua tangan sangat mirip.

Flush adalah tangan yang hanya berisi kartu dari satu jenis tertentu – hati, berlian, sekop atau tongkat (tapi tidak terhubung … jika tidak maka itu akan menjadi siraman yang berjalan).

Di Texas Hold’em Anda akan membutuhkan minimal tiga kartu komunitas dengan jenis yang sama untuk membuat tangan yang berarti itu bisa sedikit sulit untuk disamarkan.

Namun, jika Anda memiliki Ace dengan setelan itu, Anda berada dalam posisi yang cukup kuat karena peringkat ikut bermain saat menentukan pemenang.

Dan hanya untuk mengulangi, Flush mungkin terlihat cantik tetapi tidak mengalahkan Full House.

Ini karena peluang memiliki Flush adalah 3,03% di Texas Hold’em yang merupakan peluang 32,1 / 1.

Lurus

A Straight adalah salah satu tangan yang menyenangkan di Texas Hold’em karena mudah disamarkan (dan bisa dibilang mudah untuk diwakili dalam tebing).

A Straight adalah kartu poker lima kartu dalam urutan numerik tetapi dengan jenis yang berbeda.

Hasil imbang langsung terbuka sangat menarik karena ini adalah salah satu yang memiliki empat kartu terhubung memberikan pemain delapan kemungkinan ‘out’.

Meskipun sulit untuk menggertak dengan percaya diri jika Anda meleset.

Lurus tertinggi yang mungkin adalah As, King, Queen, Jack dan Sepuluh (Ace-high straight / akqj-10).

Ini juga dikenal sebagai Broadway Straight, dinamai sesuai dengan tempat teater mewah di New York dan mungkin menyinggung prevalensi gedung pencakar langit di daerah tersebut.

A Straight adalah kartu yang kuat di bawah aturan poker apa pun.

Dalam hal probabilitas, pemain dapat mengharapkan tangan ini muncul 4,62% ​​dari waktu yang dalam istilah pecahan adalah tembakan 20,6 / 1.

Three Of A Kind

Juga dikenal sebagai Trips (kependekan dari triplet), Three of a Kind adalah salah satu tangan pemenang paling umum di poker dan hanya kurang lazim daripada Straight.

Tiga Aces adalah Three of a Kind terbaik, sedangkan tiga Aces (Deuces) adalah yang terendah.

Ini adalah tangan pertama dari yang dijelaskan di mana kartu lain ikut bermain untuk menentukan pemenang akhirnya dari kartu poker.

Miliki kartu tertinggi dari semua kartu hole yang tidak digunakan dalam membuat Three of the Kind dan kemungkinan besar Anda akan menang saat showdown.

Jika pemain memiliki kartu peringkat terbaik yang sama di tangan mereka, itu kemudian ditentukan oleh kartu terakhir mereka.

Kartu pertama yang tidak digunakan di tangan dikenal sebagai ‘kicker’. Penendang pada dasarnya adalah kartu tie-break dari tangan dengan nilai yang sama.

Peluang Three of a Kind adalah 4,83% di Texas Hold’em yang dalam odds desimal setara dengan peluang hampir 20/1 (tepatnya 19,7 / 1).

Dua Pasang

Meskipun terlihat bagus di tangan Anda dan merupakan pegangan yang cukup umum, Two Pair adalah tangan poker yang akan Anda perjuangkan untuk memenangkan uang kecuali Anda bermain dengan tangan pendek atau kepala-atas.

Seperti namanya, Two Pair terdiri dari dua pasangan berbeda!

Ini adalah tangan yang adil untuk menahan turun ke belokan (kartu keempat) dan sungai (kartu kelima) mengingat ada beberapa ‘out’ bagi Anda untuk membuatnya menjadi Full House tetapi umumnya Anda akan tertinggal dalam banyak situasi terutama saat menghadapi kenaikan gaji.

Pikirkan baik-baik sebelum terlalu terikat pada tangan ini bahkan jika Anda memegang kartu tinggi. Pocket Aces (sepasang Aces) mungkin terlihat bagus sebagai kartu hole tetapi jika tidak ada Aces lebih lanjut yang gagal maka Anda mungkin dalam masalah.

Ada peluang kekalahan 23,5% untuk membuat Two Pair, menjadikannya salah satu tangan paling umum dalam permainan poker. Dalam peluang pecahan yang keluar sebagai peluang 9/4 (tepatnya 3,26 / 1).

Satu pasang

One Pair sebagai kartu hole Anda dan Anda mungkin berada dalam kondisi yang cukup baik.

Satu pasang dari lima kartu dan Anda mungkin membutuhkan keterampilan menggertak yang cukup kuat atau banyak keberuntungan untuk menjatuhkan pot.

Ini karena secara statistik, ini adalah kartu yang paling umum untuk pemain poker Texas Hold’em.

Anda dapat mengharapkan kepemilikan ini 43,8% dari waktu.

Kecuali Anda memegang kartu tinggi di papan yang cukup kering, maka Anda tidak akan berada dalam kondisi yang baik melawan sebagian besar lawan Anda.

Jika dimasukkan dalam bentuk pecahan, kemungkinannya adalah 1,28 / 1.

Kartu Tinggi

Peringkat terendah dari semua kartu poker adalah Kartu Tinggi. Sebenarnya lebih sulit untuk mendapatkan tangan di mana yang terbaik yang bisa Anda buat adalah ‘x-tinggi’. Secara statistik lebih mudah untuk memegang Pair (setelah dua pasang disertakan).

Mungkin hanya dalam poker head-up yang tangan kartu tinggi akan mengambil uang dan bahkan kemudian Anda akan melihat Ace-High atau kartu bergambar yang sangat tinggi.

Tangan Texas Hold’em Poker

Di atas memberi Anda peluang untuk mendapatkan kartu poker terbaik dalam varian Texas Hold’em (bentuk poker paling populer).

Peluang akan bervariasi dalam permainan seperti Omaha, Stud dan lo-ball tetapi peringkat kartu poker tetap sama.

Grafik Tangan Awal (Lembar Cheat)

Salah satu tip poker termudah untuk diberikan adalah menemukan grafik tangan awal poker.

Untuk pemula, mereka akan mengetahui rentang tangan yang harus Anda mainkan berdasarkan tangan awal Anda.

Ini dapat membuat Anda terhindar dari banyak masalah dan akan menyarankan hal-hal seperti offsuit Ace-Nine bukanlah tangan yang ingin Anda tangani (terutama saat bermain di luar posisi di meja penuh!).

Ini juga akan menunjukkan kepada Anda jenis tangan kuat yang bisa Anda mainkan dengan percaya diri.

Setiap pasangan saku mungkin terlihat bagus pada pandangan pertama tetapi dari posisi tertentu, apapun di bawah Jack dapat menjadi masalah.

Ini adalah lembar contekan yang berguna untuk membantu Anda memulai daripada panduan strategi poker pamungkas.

Cara Anda Belajar Poker

Seiring waktu, peringkat tangan poker akan menjadi kebiasaan Anda di meja poker.

Jangan ragu untuk menandai halaman ini.

Akan ada saat-saat ketika Anda bertanya-tanya apakah Straight Flush mengalahkan Four of a Kind; Full House mengalahkan Flush; atau jika Three of a Kind mengalahkan Two Pair (ngomong-ngomong, semuanya begitu).

The Best Online Poker Site 2021

If you’re sitting on a few hundred pounds, ready to deposit on a poker site and hit the tables, it seems like your choices are endless.

Luckily, the passing of the 2005 Gambling Act granted UK residents total freedom to choose to play online poker on whichever site they wish; and at the same time established a regulatory process to make sure player funds are safe.

In addition, later legislation allowed offshore companies to apply for UK licenses as well, further broadening the selection of rooms.

So everything is going well for UK gamblers – compare that to the US, where the vast majority of the states don’t even offer legal online poker. But with all the freedom comes the burden of choice.

Here, we list some of the most popular and some of the lesser known poker rooms available for UK players with a thorough review for each so you know what to expect when you register on one.

You may be looking for different things based on where you are at your poker career, or based on how you approach the game – you may be a rakeback grinder, or you may just look to gamble a little for the fun of it – that is why you should read through this article before making your first deposit.

PokerStars

The Best Online Poker Sites 2019

PokerStars has been dominating the market for many years– they’re number 1 in traffic in the United Kingdom as well.

Yet, if you look online you’ll find more than just positive reviews of the biggest online poker room.

This is because recently the management made some questionable decisions. It all started in 2016, when they decided to eliminate their VIP system’s highest tier, the Supernova Elite without any prior notice to the players – many pros depended on the rakeback they got from there for their living.

Then they started developing and heavily marketing new game types where skill has a lower effect on the outcome. These were, among others, the “Beat the Clock” and the “Spin & Go” – where you start with a 25BB stack and spin a wheel for the prize pool – games.

On top of all that, they raised the rake at their cash table multiple times – this is where their ambassador, Daniel Negreanu’s infamous “more rake is actually better” comments came from – and changed the tournament lobby so now the tournament fees aren’t displayed separately from the money the that goes to the prize pool (normally, you’d see £ 10+£0.10 for a tournament registration fee; now, it only shows £10.10).

Evidently, many speculated that this latter move was made so they can raise tournament fees without being noticed.

Their new revamped rewards system has garnered much criticism online as well – instead of steady, reliable rakeback percentages, you get to open so-called “chests” with randomized rewards.

Each of these decisions serves the losing recreational players more than the winning regulars. To be frank, that is what’s in PokerStars’ best interest – if losing recs enjoy themselves while playing, they’re going to come back and deposit over and over again, pumping more money to be raked into the PokerStars ecosystem.

By offering low-edge games, such as Spin&Go’s, bad regs have more winning moments and lose their bankroll slower.

On the other hand, they’ve developed new features that benefited their entire player pool, winning regs and losing recreationals alike: one of which is the so-called “Zoom” or Fast Fold poker, which has been adopted by other major rooms as well.

In Zoom poker, you get moved to another cash table on the same stakes as soon as you fold your hand. It makes the poker playing experience much more enjoyable, cutting out the waiting till the hand you are not in ends. On the other hand, it does make it less likely that recreational players play junky hands against you.

Since they don’t have to wait around either, the bad regs’ pre-flop ranges tighten up too, making them less profitable to play against.

But please keep in mind that just because these game types are being offered, you don’t have to play them.

There’s plenty of action at the regular cash tables and in the tournaments.

Rewards and Promotions

As we discussed, the new rewards system wasn’t met with the greatest of enthusiasm from their player base, but that doesn’t mean there is no value to have there.

For every £1 you pay in rake, you get 100 Reward Points – 100 points are needed to open up the lowest value Chest, the red one. Technically, it’s 150 points but you start the quest for each chest at 50 points.

You can see how many points you’ve accumulated and how many are needed for next Chest on the Progress Bar, visible in the top right corner of the client.

Once you open a Chest, you get randomized rewards – these can be tournament tickets, so-called “boosts” – a bonus that allows you to gain more Reward Points for the same amount of rake –or simply cash credited to your account.

As for other promotions, make sure to use the code “TWENTY” when making your first deposit to get £20 in Spin&Go tokens.

The Rake System

As we mentioned, PokerStars was subject to heavy criticism online for the raising the rake in their cash games.

However, at the lowest stakes cash tables, the rake is actually lower than the industry standard – 5% is what a room charges usually, while Stars charges 3.5% on £0.01/0.02.

The cap – the maximum amount they can take from a pot – is also reasonable, £0.20. That means if a pot is bigger than £4, the rake is even lower than 3.5%.

4.15% is taken by the house on £0.02/£0.05; the cap depends on how many players are at the table. If it’s 2-4, the cap is £0.30, if it’s 5+, the cap is £0.60.

4.5% is charged on £0.05/£0.10 and £0.10/£0.25 with £1 and £1.25 caps, respectively.

On £0.25/£0.5 above, the rake is 5%, raised from the former 4.5%. The cap increases with the stakes, maxing out on £5 at £50/£100 and above.

In the tournament lobby – this is another thing we mentioned earlier – the buy-ins no longer show how much you pay in tournament fees. Before registering for a tourney, make sure to check the number of players who already bought in and the current prize pool – from that, you can tell how much of your money is going to Stars.

HUD Compatibility

Yes, you can use tracking software on PokerStars – but you have to make sure to turn “Save Hand History” on in your settings. Otherwise you won’t be able to import your hands into your tracking software later. Once you opt in for hand histories, HUD works on the site as well.

Traffic Review

PokerStars is the number 1 most played on poker site in the world, that is a plain fact. At any given time of the day there will be tens of thousands of players online.

For cash games specifically, their 7-day average is 8,600 as of the writing of this review, according to PokerScout.com.

While that means plenty of action on all stakes, it may not be as good as it sounds: many times, you have to get on a waiting list as there are no empty seats at any of the cash tables – unless it’s one or two players at a 9-handed table.

There’s certainly a lot more game types available to choose from than in most online poker rooms – 5-Card Draw, 2-7 Triple Draw, Stud games – although action is scarce at those tables.

The best chance you have to play a game other than NLHE or PLO is NL 5-Card Draw – however, the smallest stakes cash table for that is £0.25/£0.50. That means you need to risk £50 to get a 100BB stack, and if you’re a casual player who deposited a couple hundred dollars or pounds, that may be too much of a risk to try out something new just for fun.

However, their classic Sit&Go tournaments fill up fast. Also, there are plenty of MTT’s to choose from, the most famous being their Sunday Million series. Every fall PokerStars hosts the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) a tournament series whose biggest winners are reported in the poker press around the world.

Every spring, a similar event takes place, the Spring Championship of Online Poker, better known as SCOOP.

Unfortunately, despite the massive traffic, there is no chat support available for all the players from the .EU and .UK market.

It may be available to you “depending on prior real money deposit history, location, language preferences and settings” – this is a direct quote from their website.

PartyPoker

The Best Online Poker Sites 2019

PartyPoker has been seen as the real alternative to PokerStars for European players. When Stars were viciously cutting down on rakeback, PartyPoker decided to revamp their VIP program, offering up to 40% cash back to their most diligent grinders.

As a result, their reputation online is the polar opposite of that of PokerStars, and initially that resulted in a bump in player traffic after the new VIP system was rolled out.

However, the enthusiasm eventually died down; and while some were eagerly waiting for PatryPoker to dethrone PokerStars on the number 1 spot, that never happened.

PartyPoker also gained positive attention from the poker fans by hosting “Trickett’s Room” games – these are super high stakes PLO cash games streamed live, featuring some of the poker world’s biggest stars, such as Patrik Antonius and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.

On the other hand, there are rumors of PartyPoker engaging in shady activities online as well.

According to some, the room seated players staked by them in live tournaments with prize pool guarantees where there was likely to be overlay.

Rewards and Promotions

As we mentioned, PartyPoker’s classic, tiered weekly rakeback system, which was introduced in May 2017, quickly became very popular with the players.

Here’s the breakdown on how it works exactly.

You need to opt in, then you start collecting points – 1 for each $1 you produce in rake. You need to reach at least 25 points by the end of the week in order to be eligible for rakeback, the lowest tier is 20%. If you reach 150 points, you get 25%, if you reach 600, you get 30%, while the highest tier, 40% is reached at 1,200 points.

In addition, if you manage to accumulate 100,000 points over a 12 month period, you get to join the Diamond Club – a VIP program very much akin to the late Supernova Elite on Stars. Members of the Diamond Club get 50% rakeback and other special perks like 24/7 VIP Skype support.

PartyPoker does not offer a classic First Deposit Bonus; however, you get $22 worth of tournament tickets with your first transaction.

You can also take part in a so-called “rake race” if you play fastforward poker (see a few lines below). A rake race is a monthly leaderboard where players are ranked by how much rake they produced.The top 300 spots are rewarded with satellite tickets, the first prize being a $530 ticket for the $5,300 MILLIONS Online.

The good thing about rake races is that if few people take part, you can earn much higher rake back (in this case, paid in seats in a satellite) than if it were a fixed percentage.

HUD Compatibility

PartyPoker automatically saves your hand histories for a limited period of time. So unless you wait for weeks, you can import your hands into your tracking software.

HUD’s are allowed by the poker room so you can use that too while playing.

The Rake System

PartyPoker is pretty much in line with the industry standards when it comes to rake at their cash tables. They charge 5% of each pot in low to mid stakes – to be exact from $0.01/$0.02 to $30/60.

The cap is increasing with the stakes, form $0.50 at the lowest level to $5 at the highest. At the highest stakes table, $200/$400, the rake is only 1%, however, with a $2 cap if there’s 2 players at the table, and a $5 cap if there’s 3 or more playing.

As for tournaments, whether they be MTT’s or S&G’s, the tournament fee is properly displayed in the lobby, separate from the prize pool money – unlike on Stars.

Traffic Review

PartyPoker is currently ranked 4th among the poker networks in terms of traffic, which translates to around 10,000 players online at any given time, 1,000-2,000 of which are playing cash games. This means you don’t have to worry about finding action, especially on low to mid stakes.

You also won’t have to worry about finding empty seats, unlike on Stars – they keep adding tables if it’s necessary. You can find cash tables from the $0.01/$0.02 stakes all the way up to $100/$200. On $200/$400, only heads-up tables are available.

Party’s version of Stars’ “Zoom Poker” can be played on the site, it is called “fastforward”, usually a few hundred users are playing them on different stakes (from $0.02/$0.05 to $2/$5).

As for tournaments, you can choose out of hundreds running every day from centrollers to high buy-in events with millions guaranteed in the prize pool. Their bounty tourneys are popular on the site – these are the tournaments where you get prize money for knocking out an opponent.

PartyPoker has its own semi-annual tournament series, although not as well known as ‘Stars’ WCOOP – it’s the POWERFEST, which features dozens of events and more and more prize money guaranteed year after year.

If you wish to play a game of “Sping&Go”, you can do that on Party as well – it’s called “Sit&Go Hero” over there, though. The buy-ins range from $0.25 all the way up to $250.

Where PartyPoker definitely has PokerStars beat is customer service. Unlike on Stars, you get access to 24/7 live chat customer support regardless of your deposit history through their website.

And you don’t even have to wait for long to get connected to a representative, you get an answer usually within 10 minutes.

Sky Poker

The Best Online Poker Sites 2019

Sky Poker is one the five core brands – the others being Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino and Sky Bingo –of the Sky Betting & Gaming Company, which is owned by PokerStars’ parent company, The Stars Group since 2018.

Formerly Sky Bet and its sister sites were affiliated with Sky plc, the British media and telecommunications company which is the owner of all the Sky television networks.

Sky Poker TV still airs every Tuesday on Sky Sports – a show which features poker strategy and a showing of the biggest cash game pots played on the site every week, with commentary.

As for the client, before installing it, you need to download the Adobe AIR Installer. This is because the program installer is a .air file, not a .exe as for most poker clients. An .air file is a compressed installer package for an application that is run by Adobe AIR – so basically the poker client runs in Adobe Flash.

Rewards and Promotions

Every new member on Sky Poker receives £10 in tournament tickets, as well as a 200% bonus up to £500 with their first deposit.

Your first deposit bonus is released in £10 installments, the £10 being credited each time you reach 250 Poker Points. You can earn Poker Points by playing cash games, Sit&Go’s or tournaments. £1 contributed in rake at a cash table, or paid for a tournament fee gets you 6 Poker Points. That means you need to rake around £42 in order to clear £10 of your bonus, which translates to around 25% rakeback.

Sky Poker also offers classic weekly and monthly rakeback rewards, on top of your FDB. You don’t need to opt in manually, everyone is automatically signed up for this promotion.

The exchange rate is the same, 6 Poker Points for £1 in rake or tournament fee.

There are six levels of the weekly loyalty scheme. You need to reach 50 points within a week to reach the lowest one, where the reward is a ticket for a £1K prize pool freeroll tournament.

If you reach 100 points, you get the same freeroll ticket as well as £2.3 in tournament tokens. The next, the bronze level is 500 point. It gives you the freeroll ticket and 1 penny for each Poker Point you earn with rake. Since one Poker Point is worth 1/6 of a Pound, that is around 17% rakeback.

On the Silver Level (starting from 1,000 points), you are rewarded with 21% rakeback, on the Gold Level (1,500 points <), you get 25% back, while on the highest, the Platinum Level, you get 33% rakeback, Evidently, you also get the freeroll ticket on each of these levels.

On top of the weekly rakeback rewards, you can grind your way into having a “Monthly Priority Badge”. This is just an additional rakeback program.

You need to earn 10,000 points in month to be eligible for the Bronze Badge (10% extra cash back), 20,000 for the Silver (12.5%), 30,000 for the Gold (15%) and 50,000 for the Platinum (20%).

HUD compatibility

Unfortunately, Sky Poker does not allow HUD’s to be used on their site. They have their built-in hand history viewing feature that you can find under “My Sky Poker” on the top menu bar; however, you can’t import those hands into your tracking software.

Traffic Review

Only players from the United Kingdom and Ireland are allowed on Sky Poker, which evidently means a smaller player pool.

According to PokerScout, the daily average is 220 players online, while the 24-hour peak is at 420 online players as of the time of writing this.

You’re still able to get reasonable amount of action in the room, especially on their low stakes cash tables, the lowest being £0.02/£0.04. The highest level is £10/£20. The vast majority of their tables are 6-handed, with a very few full-rings that have low action.

You can choose from 3 game types for cash games, tournament and Sit&Go’s as well: Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo 8-or-Better (although you’ll struggle to finds players at the O8 tables). Furthermore, you can choose to play the no-limit, pot-limit and fixed limit versions of all these games.

There are dozens of multi-table tournaments running on Sky Poker on any given day, almost exclusively No-Limit Hold’em. The buy-ins range from £1.10 to £55.

Sky Poker’s online tournament series is called UKOPS, the UK Online Poker Series. They’re currently at the 23rd edition, with a combined £400,000 in guaranteed prize money across 64 events. You can satellite in to one of the tourneys for as low £1.20.

There’s no version of the “Spin&Go” available on the site. However, there is another S&G type, unique to Sky Poker: it’s called “double your money”.

The top 50% of the field will win twice the buy-in in these mini tourneys.

Unibet

The Best Online Poker Sites 2019

Unibet was founded as an online sportsbook. They haven’t started offering poker to their customers until 2004 – to this day, their brand is mainly associated with sports betting.

Therefore a large section of their player base is casual players dabbling in poker, making their player pool a bit softer than that of the big poker rooms.

It’s one of the two rooms on this list whose client can run in your browser, you don’t have to download the software itself. This may be another factor incentivizes casual players.

Rewards and Promotions

Unibet offers their new players a €200 first deposit bonus – regardless of the size of your first deposit. It’s released in 6 installments.

1st:
You will receive €1 after the first €2 rake you generated

2nd:
You will receive €4 for €10 raked

3rd:
You will receive €15 for € 50 raked

4th:
You will receive €40 for €150 raked

5th:
You will receive €140 for €588 raked

6th:
You will receive €200 for €800 raked.

As you can tell, the total bonus amounts to 25% rakeback.

As for permanent rakeback, there is none on this site. However, you can complete different missions for prizes such as tournament tickets.

A unique promotion they’re running is called the “King of Flips”. As a reward for your rake you get a token to enter a heads-up flip match against the house, where you get to choose whether or not you’re going to risk the amount you won for another flip.

HUD compatibility

Unfortunately, Unibet doesn’t save hand histories therefore tracking programs like PokerTracker4 cannot be used.

You can ask for your hand history from their support, but they only give you an overview instead of the specific description of each hand.

For the same reasons, HUD’s can’t be used either.

Traffic Review

Unibet, running as an independent poker room, is currently ranked 13th in terms of traffic – but please note that they’re up against entire poker networks, not just rooms on that list. Their daily average is 500 players online.

There’s usually a few hundred cash players online, you won’t have any trouble finding a game, especially at the lower stakes.

The cash tables range from NL€4 to NL€400 for Hold’em and from PL€4 to PL€400 for Omaha. “Banzai Texas” poker is also available on the site.

Banzai poker is nothing but a 10BB short-handed Texas Hold’em cash game – this may not sound very inviting, but keep in mind that they only charge 1% rake in that game.

However, you cannot play any version of fast fold poker or Spin&Go.

There’s also dozens of MTT’s running each day – although most of them are very low stake, the biggest ones are the €20,000 prize pool Supernova tournaments.

Bet365 Poker

The Best Online Poker Sites 2019

Much like Unibet, Bet365’s main profile is still sports betting. However, the big difference is that while Unibet is a stand-alone room, Bet365 is part of the iPoker network. A poker network is a collection of poker rooms, so-called “skins”: they share a player pool and their clients share the software they are running on.

The layout is different and they can run different promotions for their players.

Other iPoker skins include Betfair, William Hill, Everest and Coral. We chose Bet365 because it’s the most known brand among them.

iPoker is owned by PlayTech, a British gambling software development company founded in 1999. Bet365 Poker launched as a part of the Microgaming Network in 2004, then joined the iPoker in 2007.

Rewards and Promotions

As we mentioned above, promotions can make the real difference between the skins of a poker network.

Bet365 offers every new player of theirs a Welcome Package. This includes €5 in tournament tickets, and 10 free spins on a casino game of your choice.

In addition, you get a 100% First Deposit Bonus up to €100. The bonus is released in €2.5 increments, except for the first one, which is a €1 after the first 10 Status Point you earned. The remaining €2.5 installments are cleared after 150 Status Points.Ten Status Points are gained for €1 produced in rake. This means that you get a 100% rakeback for the first €1 you grind out, then 16.67% rakeback for the rest of your bonus.

You can also complete the “Welcome Mission” for an additional €5 in tournaments on top of the tickets you automatically receive with your first deposit. This is quite an unusual promotion, but if you feel like it, give it a try.

Here, we quote the Bet365 website, where you can also find more information if you need to.

Create a Nickname to qualify for the Welcome Mission

Do all the following (…): log in twice (only Poker software counts, both on desktop and mobile); deposit/transfer €10 or more to Poker; play two Sit&Go’s, with three entrants or more, during two different qualifying periods. (…)

Tournament Tickets can only be used to enter tournaments of the relevant type with the corresponding buy-in amount and, if unused, expire seven days after they are credited.

If not completed, the Welcome Mission expires 28 days after creating your Poker Nickname.

Once you took advantage of all the welcome bonuses, you can still earn rewards with your volume on the site – although not as profitable as the classic cash back schemes that are available, for example, on PartyPoker.

You can collect Status Points for the same amount of rake as in the first deposit bonus, 10 for €1. Bet365 will assign missions to you. You have to collect a certain amount of points within a certain amount of time.

Once you manage to complete that, you are rewarded with Bet365 coins that can be used as currency in the Bet365 store. The store sells tournament tickets, both MTT’s and S&G’s, as well as “bonus euros”, cash credited to your account.

HUD Compatibility

If you download the client, Bet365 saves your hand histories. They can be imported to your tracking software and HUD also runs properly.

Traffic Review

On Bet365, you can play against the entire iPoker player pool, or you can choose to filter for Bet365 players only at the so-called “Premium Tables”. If you opt to do so, you’re going to get the same benefits as though you were playing on Unibet: a large section of the players are sports bettor trying out poker for fun – especially on low stakes.

Also just like on Unibet, you can play poker from your browser without installing the software.

As for the whole iPoker network, they are currently ranked 10th in terms of traffic by PokerScout. Their daily average is 700 cash players, while their 24-hour peak is 1,446 players as of the time of writing this.

Cash game stakes start at €0.02/€0.04 but only go up to €5/€10 – this may not be the place for high rollers. However, you can get reliable action even at the highest stakes in the room.

The latest alternation of No-Limit Hold’em, short-deck poker cash tables are also available in the lobby, but only up to €0.50/€1. This is something they actually beat PokerStars and PartyPoker to – both major sites showed interest in adding the new game to their selection, however, neither of them did so far, unlike Bet365.

You can play the other fairly new game type, the fast fold poker as well. On the other hand, NLHE is the only game available, both for tournaments and cash. PLO fans need to find another site.

Their version of the “Spin&Go” is called “Twister”, just like on all the other iPoker sites. Buy-ins for this type of mini tourneys range from €1 to €100, with an option to play for tournament tickets for only €0.50.

You can choose from over 100 tournaments to buy into each day, from freerolls to €100 events.

Bet365 is running its Bounty Hunter Festival: €1-€100 bounty tournaments are running each day. You can buy into them directly, win a seat in a satellite or win a seat through one of the Bounty Hunter Festival missions.

The total guaranteed prize pool for the series is €200,000. It ends on November 11th, 2018 – however, these types of promotions tend to be repeated if they’re anywhere near successful.

Poker HUDs Tested & Rated

Online poker has taken the game to the next level.

The sheer number of hands you can play has let people experience all the different situations available.

This experience has translated into big profits for some players and allowed them to excel and crush the games.

Everyone is improving more quickly and coaching/training sites have added to the trend. 

As the industry has expanded, the tools available to assist you have become more varied.

These tools have let people take their game up a notch; allowing them to make better decisions and put in more volume.

The software is made to increase your win rate and help make more money for you.

Online poker has (almost) always been more anonymous, with a much greater focus on the maths behind the decisions.

Tracking software and HUDs let you track every opponent’s ways of playing and therefore allows you an insight into their thought processes.

This makes the game much more real, and brings back the person vs person element.

It also means you can profitably play multiple tables at once, as it’s not essential that you monitor the way every single player is playing.

We’ve reviewed each HUD in detail below. However, if you just want the verdict, here it is:

What is a Poker HUD?

HUD stands for Heads Up Display and is arguably the main component of poker tracking software.

Tracking software runs alongside your poker client, tracking each hand and storing relevant data on every situation.

This data is then shown alongside each player at the table (including yourself) so that you can easily analyse a specific player’s game, or see how your own reputation looks at the table.

The database of information collected by tracking software is extremely useful for reviewing how you’ve played, tracking wins and losses, and looking for leaks in your game. 

HUDs themselves are used while you’re playing and track immediate statistics.

HUDS come up while you’re playing and appear as rows of numbers, with player’s names and other statistics.

To those who’ve never used a HUD before this can look like chaos across the screen.

In fact, it’s useful information about every player’s tendencies are and how they play. With this you don’t have to remember information as it’s kept right there in front of you.

How Valuable Are Poker HUDs?

99%+ of winning online poker players (long-term) use a HUD.

That stat alone should say it all.

However, let’s take a look at the value they offer:

HUDs access hand histories that are stored as text files on your computer automatically by your poker client (whether that be PokerStars, PartyPoker or whichever other poker site).  

The HUD then mines and displays the relevant date from them in real-time. 

Most common statistics that the HUDS show on opponents are:

VPIP (Voluntarily Put chips In the Pot) – how active a player is beingPFR (Pre-Flop Raise) – what percentage of pots a player is raising pre-flopAggression factor – how aggressive a player is being3bet frequency – the percentage of pots a player is re-raising. Post flop decisions – how often do they check or bet the flop? Or the turn? Or the river?

There are many more statistics available, and you’re usually able to customise exactly what information is appearing in your feed.

All of this information is designed to help your decision making and make them become second nature – almost robotic, instantaneous decisions the majority of the time.

Your HUD will be updated in real time so you’re seeing exactly what your opponents are doing against you today.

All of this builds into what the picture you’re creating of who you’re up against and let’s you know how you should alter or adapt your style.

While it may seem like a screen full of numbers, it’s actually your ticket to much better results once you become accustomed to it.

This process doesn’t usually take too much time.

If you’ve watched any successful live streamer they are almost certainly using a HUD – so you’ve probably seen one in action, even if you haven’t specifically realised it.

Basically anyone who is taking the game seriously is using tracking software and a HUD.

Some people use them/rely on them more than others, but there are very few serious players who don’t own the software already.

By taking care of the numbers, you’re able to focus more on the decisions that matter; sensible play, timing tells, mathematically profitable plays and more. 

From here you can adjust your game, exploit another player’s weaknesses and make more accurate decisions.

Poker is all about making the correct choices over and over again, and knowledge is the key to being right more often.

However…

HUDs aren’t just useful for the key statistics.

They let you evaluate what type of player you’re up against.

Poor recreational players (or fish) can be identified based on their actions, with some poker tracking software even automatically generating images (such as fish or even whales) based on playing styles.

By easily being able to see the good and bad players you can instantly tell a good game from a bad one.

HUDs will also identify everything from past experiences (within reasonable timeframes) and feed them into the present games.

Needless to say, a poker HUD will not allow you to win every time. However, it does swing the odds much more firmly in your favour. 

Chances are, when playing without one on any of the big poker sites, you’re playing against someone that has more information on you than you have on them.

The Best Poker HUDs Reviewed

OK, so you’re convinced a HUD can help, or you’re at least open to the decision.

We’ve found and reviewed what we believe to be the 4 most popular poker HUDs in the market today. 

They each have their own features, software and are slightly different in price.

If you don’t wish to learn about each HUD in depth, we’ve summarised your best options in this table:

Each of these games plays very differently so you’ll want different information at hand to play optimally (e.g in tournaments, the pre-flop decisions are more crucial than in cash games where stacks are deeper).

PokerTracker will automatically detect the format of your games but you can also easily switch between them using options on the tables.

Colour Coding

PokerTracker HUD also features colour coding.

This let’s you set boundaries for each stat and the colour will change depending on the figure.

For instance you can set your Aggression Factor statistic to go red when it is over 80.

That indicates an aggressive player and somebody you’ll need to change tactics against.

The red writing will draw your attention to this in game and let you make adjustments.

The colour coding let’s you glance round a table and see how you should be playing/what strategy choices you can make to ensure the best profit margins.

PokerTracker Hand Replayer

PokerTracker 4 let’s you see the whole cards of opponent’s even if they muck at the end of a hand.

Their hand will pop up on the table once the hand has been resolved so you can see what they had.

PokerTracker also lets you mark hands later and make notes on players through their software.

If you think something is noteworthy then just right click and a text box will appear.

Within the database you can filter for marked hands, making later review much simpler.

PokerTracker 4 features a hand replayer that lets you relive the action.

Double click a specific hand and the replayer will load it up and play through it for you.

PokerTracker Support

PokerTracker have set up a fairly detailed FAQ page, with written and video guides for setup, installation and making the most of their software.

There is also a forum where people can ask other users questions about certain issues.

PokerTracker have a decent support system and are available to answer questions.

If you’re in doubt you can always look to popular poker forums like 2+2 and PocketFives as they have specific threads dedicated to PokerTracker.

PokerTracker Reviews

PokerTracker is one of the most popular options when it comes to poker software.

PokerTracker came after Hold’em Manager who dominated the market for years.

For some is was an adjustment to move away from the market leader but in general people seem very positive about PokerTracker 4:

“One of the great things about this program is that it’s available on a free 60-day trial AND has a Mac version. The automated installation makes it friendly for beginners who may not want to deal with or know how to handle a manual install, like many pieces of poker software have.” (Source)

There were criticisms in the past from players who would prefer PokerTracker have an easier option to create player profiles.

This is important for detailed reports against individuals, and something PokerTracker 4 features quite well.

While some don’t find PokerTracker 4 as user-friendly as other big names they do admit it’s a great piece of software and that the HUD is one of the best around.

PokerTracker 4 Pricing

PokerTracker have divided their pricing, giving separate options for just Omaha players or just small stakes, casual players.

You can see the pricing of PokerTracker 4 here.

PokerTracker 4 Upgrades

The different packages let you customise the product depending on your needs, meaning you can spend the minimum to have access to all the features.

All of the licenses are for life and can be used on up to 3 different machines.

You can swap the license over to a new computer when you’re changing.

You’re also able to upgrade each package if you’re switching stakes of games.

PokerTracker pricing is very competitive for such a well developed and well rounded product.

The small stakes option lets those with a small bankroll have all the same perks as those with thousands, and makes it accessible to a range of players.

PokerTracker Strengths and Weaknesses

PokerTracker have developed a great option when it comes to supporting poker players.

Here’s what we think the main pros and cons are when choosing PokerTracker.

Strengths:

Suitable for MacsLight SoftwareVersatile HUDGreat FeaturesCompetitive Pricing Available for Hold’em and OmahaSeparate Small Stakes Price Plan

Weaknesses:

Basic Design Fewer Add-OnsNot Compatible with all Poker Clients Less Analytical Tools

For us PokerTracker 4 is one of the strongest options around and the strengths far outweigh the weaknesses.

They’ve proven themselves to have powerful software and they keep bringing out updates and advancements regularly which improve it further.

Holdem Manager Review – Best for Both Grinders & Casual Players

Holdem Manager review

Holdem Manager is the original poker software that truly changed the online game.

They first released their custom poker tracker before any of their competitors and the most widely used brand around.

Before we get started we should let you know that HEM is still not available for Mac users, which is incredibly frustrating for fans of Apple as it is such a good choice of HUD.

Their software is fairly large and can put a strain on some PCs and laptops – causing some crashes if your device is lower than average quality.

However, Hold’em Manager 3 is still on of the best pieces of poker tracking software around.

Holdem Manager 3 (HEM3) is the newly updated version to this software and boasts over double the features and tools that the previous version (HEM2) has.

The team at Holdem Manager has created one of the most powerful and thorough tools for tracking your game, evaluating your play and finding all of the ways to improve.

View the latest deal on Holdem Manager 2

Hold’em Manager 3 Features

Holdem Manager software

HEM 3 has been created to build upon the success of the original and HEM 2, with added value to the users.

HEM 3, like the previous version has a slick interface, which is stylish but extremely navigable even for first time users.

The interface has been adapted to make it even simpler for those completely new to tracking software.

From setup to ongoing use it’s one of the most user friendly on the market.

Hold’em Manager has created a whole site dedicated to FAQs and support with the software.

There is also a dedicated forum to deal with more specific queries.

You’ll find instructional guides and videos that will help you get started and make the most of the tracker.

Customisable HUD

HEM 3 has default HUDs for tournaments, cash games or SnGs.

These feature all of the usual stats to do with preflop aggression and postflop tendencies.

You can alter these or create a custom HUD depending on which stats you deem the most useful on the table.

When creating your HUD it’s always a good idea to look on the forums and see what other people are using.

With HEM 3 you can import somebody else’s HUD, perfect if you have a friend who’s happy to share. This is a perfect shortcut for those with less experience.

HEM 3 HUDs feature colour coding to easily identify the types of players online.

When specific stats go above or below certain levels they will be highlighted.

Then you’ll be able to make adjustments in your gameplay from only a glance round the table.

HEM 3’s HUDs feature icons:

These are put next to each opponent’s name and characterises their playing style.

You no longer have to read the numbers to see who’s a fish or a shark, HEM 3 will literally show you.

One of HEM 3’s most impressive features is the inbuilt notecaddy.

Notecaddy automatically records notable hands on opponents to make sure you don’t miss anything.

This means next time you play you’ll have handy notes on how they play draws, overpairs or bluffs, all written for you by the software.

Hold’em Manager Database

HEM 3 features a large database.

This lets you analyse results, look at wins and losses and find potential weaknesses.

The data is presented in multiple formats, most useful is the line graph which shows the direction your play is taking you.

You can even add in an EV line to see if you’re running good or bad.

The HEM 3 database let’s you create player personas and look in depth at their plays, strategies and wins/losses.

You can identify who you’re beating the most and who is getting the best of you and run simulations to beat them.

The HEM 3 database stores all the details for cash games, tournaments, SnGs and even PLO games (if you have the full package).

You can switch between each simply and look at all of the results for different stakes.

Hold’em Manager is providing the most in depth reports for users, allowing you to see what’s happening in each specific scenario.

You can look at how you’re doing with AK, or what’s happening from the big blind.

With this detailed view you can really get to grips with your own game and the strengths and weaknesses behind it.

Other Features

Hold’em Manager have created an app with lets you take the software on the go.

You’ll be able to upload hands and check your stats on the move.

While it doesn’t have all the features of the full system It’s certainly a useful plus.

Hold’em Manager has an equity calculator that allows you to check your EV not just against specific hands but by inputting an opponent’s whole range.

Using the range selector you can visualise all of the potential hands the villain could have and work out what the best play is.

The new Situational Views filter sees key situations presented as collections of several mini-views within a single dashboard.

A new neat feature is better visual and powerful hand filtering meaning you are no longer limited to predetermined filter combinations from the filter editor.

HEM 3 features a whole range of option add ons and plug ins.

These include Tilt Breaker (an app which enforces a stop/loss on your game play) and Tableninja (a multi tabling tool that lets you customise bet sizing and makes gameplay simple.

These integrated features are all designed to bring out the best poker player in you and add to your results.

Hold’em Manager Strengths and Weaknesses

HEM 3 has proven itself to be a robust piece of software that can add value to your game.

What we like most about it:

Great HUDPowerful DatabaseIntegrated Apps Unique FeaturesIn Depth Post-Game AnalysisNew Situational Views

What we don’t like:

Large Piece of SoftwareMore ExpensiveNot Mac-Compatible

Hold’em Manager 3 Reviews

Users of Holdem Manager 2 were pretty much all extremely pleased with the software and the benefit it brought. Similarly with HEM 3 there is a lot of good chatter on the forums.

“I started using HM3 in about a week and I’m loving it. It is far superior to HM2, both in functionalities and in computer performance, because it is lighter.”

I think it’s worth you to test. (Source)

HM3 generally gets all-round support from the poker community:

“I’d strongly recommend Hold Em Manager.

It’s the best HUD for a grinder + shows very detailed statistics, keeps track of your hands.

Jivaro was OK. A little too minimalist for me.

DriveHud was honestly the only PokerHUD I downloaded and did not like.

Felt like I needed a degree in HUD-ology to set it up.” (Source)

Having struggled a little on its initial release HEM3 is now vastly improved upon the initial release version. The developers have done well to counter a lot of the bugs.

It may not be perfect but it is now very usable with little trouble.

Needless to say, it’s also important that your laptop or computer is not too old or slow – otherwise it would have trouble powering any piece of software. 

Hold’em Manager 3 Pricing

HEM 3 is available in 3 different packages

HEM 3 Small StakesHEM 3 PROPRO Combo 3 (Omaha+Texas Hold’em)

All of these are a one-off price for each with a yearly subscription for some offers, and you can check the current prices of each via this link.

You’re able to install each piece of software on up to 3 devices, which you can be changed.

There are several affiliate options available where you can get Hold’em Manager 3 for a discounted price when you sign up to a specific rakeback deal – it’s worth shopping around for the best price.

Hold’em Manager 3 has a 30 day free trial available which is recommended if you haven’t used the software before.

Try it out and see all the features, it’s likely you won’t be able to go back to poker without it!

Hold’em Manager 3 Final Thoughts

Hold’em Manager have created the full and complete poker tracker.

There is very little not included with them and the usefulness and value for the user are apparent from day 1.

The only real limiting factor is that it isn’t available for Macs and even the windows version can be buggy.

However the creators have done well to limit all of the problems, and while less power CPUs might struggle with the software, they should be able to handle it (providing you aren’t streaming 4 different shows at the same time).

Hold’em Manager are one of, if not the, most expensive trackers around, but they justify this cost with their very well made software.

The range of packages does let you limit the cost a little, but if you take the time to make the most of it you’re likely to make profit on your investment.

DriveHUD Review – Alternative Option

DriveHUD claims to be beautiful, intuitive and powerful. It certainly sounds like a good mix, we’ll be giving a rundown of all the features to see if that’s the case.

Software

It is surprisingly quick and easy to download. The DriveHud website is easy to navigate and provides a lot of information about their product.

If you want to try before you buy you can download a 30-day free trial here.

This HUD is currently a Windows only application. Under the FAQ section on their website, they say it is possible to run on Mac through compatibility programs. However, we’re unsure of the reliability of running the program that way.

To activate the free trial all you have to do is download the program and enter your email address when prompted. No card details are required but it does need a computer restart so make sure you don’t have anything important running.

Once purchased one DriveHUD license key will work on two computers. This is handy if you want to run it on a main setup and a laptop so you can have a portable setup.

The software will run on 4GB’s RAM but is optimised for 8GB’s plus. Bear this in mind if running on a laptop. 

Features

The user interface is a black background with bright graphics and a fairly minimal amount of text.

It’s clear that a lot of thought has been put into how DriveHUD want information to be displayed.

You have four tabs across the top which are dashboard, tournament, HUD and apps. The dashboard is effectively the home screen. 

Here you have gauges which display your performance stats. When starting out it may take a bit of back and forth between the software and the user manual. There are a lot of abbreviations which may take a bit of getting used to for a beginner.

The user manual that is available on the website is very thorough. It includes a 20-minute introductory video which should help familiarise yourself with the software. Any minor questions we had were easy enough to troubleshoot through the user manual.

If you are still stuck there is a forum as well as live customer chat support available. They also have something called knowledge base which is more of a common questions list. This is worth a look as it links to guides with pictures.

The supporting materials on offer from DriveHUD are very impressive.

Available through the forum and the Apps tab you can find the HUD store. Here you can download free and paid HUD. 

There are a fair few free options although only one or two have favourable reviews. 

You will probably want to create your own one. To do this you simply click on the HUD tab at the top. 

It is easy enough to import your games through the buttons on the right-hand side.

12 Pre-defined HUDs

DriveHud offers 12 HUDs that you can load in and get started with straight away. These are for a range of game types and all with slightly different level of stats.

Streamlined displays that make profiling easier or more advanced displays that contain a lot of information. 

Drag and Drop HUD Creation

When you get around to creating your own HUDs it should be easy to get started as DriveHUD favour a drag and drop creation system.

It really is simple to use and stack up the features you desire on your HUD.

There are icons of the main features that you can add, including all the standard graphs and stats.

DriveHUD favours creating a cleaner display that prioritises quality data over quantity.

Other Features

Bumper stickers are fully customisable badges that will identify patterns in your opponents play. 

These will notify you while you’re playing with the intention to exploit the hands of competitors. 

A tilt metre will show how close an opponent is to tilting. Displayed in a bar metre on the side of your HUD.

Tracking of your poker hands by position at the table, your holecards, time at the table, stack size, and much more with easy to use poker tracking.

You also have the option to profile players which should help to identify what type of player you are up against. Including when you’re playing someone who isn’t playing the best, known as a fish. 

Prices 

DriveHUD offers a variety of price points that depend on the stakes you are planning on using. There are also different versions for Holdem and Omaha, if you want both it will cost you more.

For a full rundown of the prices click here.

DriveHUD Strengths

Easy to useGreat looking user interfaceGood user manual and learning materials Easy to create HUDs

DriveHUD Weaknesses 

Final Thoughts

DriveHUD has made a piece of software that is easy to use and looks great.

The user interface is easy to navigate around and the company provides great support should you get stuck.

One slight thought we had was the software prefers a drag and drop style to create HUDs. This makes them easy to create and edit but it isn’t the build from the ground up type displays some other software allow you to create.

Overall, we have found it hard to pick faults in DriveHUD. It will come down to personal preference on how you like to create your HUDs. Make the most of the free trial and give it a go yourself. 

Jivaro Review – Currently Unrecommended

Jivaro Review

We don’t currently recommend Jivaro as a business. We have found their communication and customer service to be extremely lacking, with them failing to respond to many of our emails and dealing in an unsatisfactory manner in the times that they have responded.

Jivaro market themselves as the next generation poker tool which has been designed to fit the specific needs of the player.

Jivaro is one of the simplest tools around and has proved one of the most popular. The simple options and layout make it very user friendly for newer poker players.

It is also by far the best looking HUD in our opinion – making your tables look sleek and making analysing stats nice and easy.

Jivaro have spent some time creating a community for people to communicate about the software and the games themselves.

Jivaro pride themselves on their fresh approach of moving away from the technical and making the software simple, but efficient.

Let’s take a look at the software and features:

Jivaro Software

Jivaro poker software

Jivaro is available only for windows and not Macs (annoyingly).

The software isn’t huge and won’t put a big strain on your CPU.

Jivaro functions just like the other mainstream poker trackers, by accessing the hand history text files on your pc and uploading them into the database.

Jivaro software works with Pokerstars (the most popular poker site by far) and some of other other major poker clients.

The software has been created to integrate effectively with poker clients.

It layers on top of the tables really well, with a great design, it will seem like it’s all just one program.

The database (command centre) is easy to use and customisable, specifically made so anyone can figure it out in a few minutes.

Jivaro Features

Jivaro has been created and adapted to meet the user’s needs.

They are constantly updating and refining existing software, as well as adding new tools to allow the user to do more with the information.

HUD

Jivaro’s HUD features the unique HUD circle.

This coloured circle is a visual display which allows the user to see key information at a glance.

The key stats involving number of hands played, raise pre and aggression are all represented by the colour shown on each portion of the circle.

As you play more hands against an opponent you’ll learn more and this display will be more accurate.

Alongside this visual display, the Jivaro HUD features 3 key stats.

You can change these based on the position, street of play or personal preferences. Jivaro have deliberately limited the HUD to 3 stats in an effort to keep things simple and not clutter the screen.

The Jivaro HUD also puts some focus on giving live stats from the games.

In a tournament you’ll be able to see who’s left and what the prizes are.

There is also ICM information so you can work out what your chips are worth, allowing you to maximise them.

Jivaro’s HUD is a quick and easy overview of the game you’re playing and the opponents playing styles.

Despite providing less information than other poker trackers the visual aspect is unparalleled by the competition.

Database

The other side of the Jivaro software is the command centre.

From here you can look back over previous games, run reports against certain players and customise the HUD.

It’s a lot lighter than more of the other trackers but still has some features for post hand analysis.

Jivaro have some good features in their database like a hand replayed and other tools.

They also make it easy to share hands, allowing others to give feedback on how you’ve played.

Jivaro Community and Forums

Jivaro have taken the time to create an open space where people can discuss all things poker. With their basic option anyone can sign up for free and get involved with the discussion. The forums features everything from setting up the software to hand discussions.

Jivaro have attempted to make a poker community. By allowing players to easily share hands they’re promoted discussion and learning, making them a popular choice especially with newer players to the game.

Jivaro Pricing

Jivaro offer two different options for membership:

Basic Membership

This is free for anyone to sign up. You’ll have access to the basic software, the community and a number of other key features. The free option is perfect for anyone who just wants to see what it’s all about and makes poker tracking accessible for those who couldn’t normally afford it.

Premium Membership

Jivaro offer a premium membership for $4.99 a month. This includes some more advanced statistics and tools designed to improve your gameplay. If you’ve used HUDs before or you’ve outgrown the basic membership it’s still the cheapest product around which offers these features.

Jivaro Strengths

Simple and ClearAccessibleGreat Price

Jivaro’s software, design, layout and technical set up are incredibly easy to use and clear.

The HUD is designed to be easy to read and not clutter the screen while you play, something we really appreciate.

Jivaro clearly had more recreational players in mind when they created this software, and they’ve done a brilliant job to make it as good as it is.

With less complicated stats and options it’s a lot less intimidating for those who are resistant to HUDs.

Compared to others on the market we believe Jivaro are offering a lot for a little.

The free option is perfect for anyone who is on the fence about HUDs.

Even the premium is a fraction of the cost of the nearest competitor.

This is because they work on a low monthly subscription compared to a large one-off investment.

This is great for those that only want to pay for what they use. 

Jivaro Weaknesses

No MacsLimited statsLimited poker sitesWe’ve had a bad experience in dealing with them

By keeping everything simple and streamlined, they’ve left off a lot of options that other poker trackers are offering.

This makes it seem less complete to us and means that you can’t customise it as much as you may want to.

The premium version of Jivaro does feature a lot more information though.

As with a lot of the poker trackers it doesn’t function for MacBooks.

This is frustrating for Mac users as they either can’t use it or have to run complicated mirror software.

Jivaro struggles or won’t work with a lot of poker clients.

They do work on Stars but you should check the functionality with your preferred poker site before purchase.

Jivaro Reviews

Reviews tend to appreciate Jivaro for what it offers and the benefit it can have on your game:

“It’s definitely better than nothing. You get 3 basic HUDs for free: VPIP, PFR and AF, if I’m not mistaking. Sure it helps” (Source)

Jivaro is very inexpensive, even though they go for the monthly charge rather than the one off expense.

However it has it’s limitations:

“I use it, and I’m happy about it, but if you want more specific and detailed information, you should go for a more complete HUD, which will cost you some bucks.” (Source)

Overall users seem pretty pleased with the software and appreciate Jivaro for what it is, a cheap but slightly limited version of what the major brands are offering.

Jivaro Final Thoughts

Jivaro have not tried to compete with the well established names in tracking software.

Instead they’ve cornered a more specific market of those who don’t particularly like HUDs but appreciate they have to use them now to win.

Jivaro have made first step software that is perfect in design and capability for those who aren’t very comfortable with this kind of thing.

The price makes it very attractive to those who wouldn’t want to pay over $50 up front for something they can’t make the most of anyway, although Jivaro’s monthly fee will end up costing you more in the long run.

Jivaro is a lot less technical that the competitors but a lot more user friendly.

There are less features but we appreciate each more.

Despite having fewer add ons it’s good software and for the price tag it’s great value.

If you’re new to poker tracking software, not good with complicated set ups or just don’t want to break the bank then consider Jivaro.

However, we currently recommend that you look towards other HUDs as we’ve been extremely disappointed in Jivaro’s behind-the-scenes communication and service.

Poker Copilot Review – Best for Mac Users

Poker Copilot review

Poker Copilot was originally launched as an alternative to the big 2 in poker tracking, Holdem Manager and PokerTracker.

They’re now on their 6th version of the software and Poker Copilot 6 has some useful features for players.

Developed originally for Mac (as the other competitors didn’t run on them), they’ve now expanded so they’re usable on all the main platforms.

Poker Copilot attempted to break into the market and have succeeded in securing a corner of the market.

They’ve attempted to combine the simple with the effective in their design, layout and features.

View the latest deal on Poker Copilot

Poker Copilot 6 Software

Poker Copilot

Poker Copilot software has been created to be used by the new players and experienced grinders alike.

They’ve made their interface light and fresh with everything displayed clearly.

The software is simple to use and easily navigable.

It might not have all the features of the main 2 but It is well laid out.

Poker Copilot is compatible with all the major poker sites including:

Poker StarsParty PokerFull TiltiPoker NetworkMicrogaming NetworkOnGame NetworkBetfair888 Poker

Poker Copilot 6 Features

Poker Copilot 6 has all the features you’d expect from a full pokertracker, including some unique extras.

HUD

Poker Copilot has a HUD that features all of the usual design aspects.

It pops up on your table and displays 3 key statistics.

They’ve decided to keep it simple instead of cluttering the screen, but if you scroll over you can see more information.

Poker Copilot’s HUD has data visualisation features that highlight certain players tendencies.

This makes it simple to identify player types, sharks and recreational players easily.

Database

The database side provides all the analytics you need to improve your game.

Keep track of your bankroll, wins and losses and identify weaknesses through the different views.

Use the graphs to see your trends and work out your win rates.

The Poker Copilot database is perfect for analysing hands after sessions are completed so you can see your mistakes and learn from them.

Leak Finder

Poker Copilot has a built in leak finder that identifies your weaknesses and mistakes.

It creates a report and gives advice on how to plug the holes in your game and ultimately play better.

The Leak Finder software is the best way to go from losing to winning.

All in all Poker Copilot offers a pretty complete well rounded tracker.

While it doesn’t have all the features or analytical power of Holdem Manager or PokerTracker it is able to improve your game and bring you value.

Poker Copilot Pros and Cons

Poker Copilot has some good points and bad points which help put the software into perspective when you’re selecting the most suitable for you.

Strengths:

Light SoftwareWell DesignedWorks on Windows and MacCompatible with All Major Poker ClientsBuilt-in Leak Finder

Weaknesses

Fairly ExpensiveFewer Features than HEM 2 or PT4 Fewer Statistics than HEM 2 or PT4

Poker Copilot Pricing

You can check the current pricing of Poker Copilot via this link. 

Their membership is a one-off payment and includes both Hold’em and Omaha tracking software.

With this license you can use it on a couple of different devices.

Poker Copilot pricing is similar to PT4 and slightly cheaper than HEM 2 (but more expensive than its low stakes version).

They do often run promotions and discounts which it’s always worth looking out for.

Poker Copilot Reviews

Poker Copilot has a variety of different poker reviews around. Most of them find the software very usable and beneficial to their game. The most common criticism is prominent in almost all of the reviews and is that it just isn’t measuring up to the other software:

“When you click on an opponent (either in the HUD or main program), you don’t get nearly the same depth of information you can about yourself, or that programs like Poker Tracker provide.” (Source)

If Poker Copilot didn’t have such stiff competition it would probably thrive, however the market leaders have done very well in creating such robust software for poker players.

That being said the majority of reviews rate Poker Copilot highly and feel it brings value to their poker game.

Poker Copilot Tracking

For us Poker Copilot 6 is pretty good software to improving your game.

Unfortunately we just don’t find it as in depth as the main 2.

As a lighter version it works well, but the price tag is still high and pretty similar to PokerTracker 4.

Poker Copilot reminds us of pokertracker 4 in a lot of ways but has a less detailed and usable HUD.

If it was being offered as a cheaper option it would be tempting but for the same price we can’t really go against PT4.

That being said Poker Copilot have done well to consistently improve upon their last software and make it better.

If you don’t like the PT4 or HEM 2 interface then give their 30 day free trial and go, it might be the best choice for you.

Which HUD to Choose?

So as you can see there are some great options available when it comes to selecting your poker accomplice.

Each have their pros and cons but the choice really depends on what level you’re at.

Using a HUD and a poker tracker has become a skill in itself, one which is necessary to succeed at online poker.

In our opinion, none of the other trackers come close to the big two in the market; Poker Tracker and Holdem Manager.

They have in-depth statistics, information and features that are able to take you to the next level.

For us the ultimate choice has got to be HEM 2 (though frustratingly it’s not available for Macs – the best choice if you’re a Mac user will be Poker Copilot).

Its analytical power, in-depth HUD and add-on integration is just incredible and you can see why they are the original choice.

While HEM 2 is expensive it has a lot to it, and we think the investment pays off in the long run.

Poker Tracker 4 is another tempting choice, especially for those of us who have issues with older devices – HEM might crash it.

It’s much lighter software, but still does everything you need it to (and much much more).

There will always be an element of personal choice when it comes to HUDs, during our play time we’ve used lots of different tracking software.

The best ones are so well developed now it’s not just about what the software can do for you, it’s about realistically what you’ll be able to do with the software.

If you’ve got the time to read up, watch videos and get to grips with all of the features of the different software then pick a complicated one.

If you hate that kind of thing then a simpler model is probably the way to go.

Always remember that a HUD is only as powerful as you let it be, so use yours right and you can revolutionise your game.

Poker HUD Frequently Asked Questions

Are HUDs allowed on PokerStars?

Yes, playing with a HUD is common practice on PokerStars — almost every winning player is likely to be using one.
They’ve tightened up the rules regarding HUD software in recent years, though this was more of an impact for HUD developers rather than the players.

How do poker HUDs work?

Whilst they may sometimes look complex and futuristic, the truth is that HUDs work in a very simple way.
Every time a hand is played out, the details of that hand are saved to your computer. The HUD software then loads in all previous hand information in order to establish how often each player was raising, betting, folding and much more, in order to give you accurate information on how likely a player is to be bluffing or value betting.

What does HUD stand for?

HUD stands for Heads-Up Display. These Heads-Up Displays show information on every player at the table — assuming they’ve played at least one hand in your company.

Is it cheating to use a HUD?

Absolutely not! A HUD simply gives you information that you would have already had if you’d been watching closely — it just has a much better memory than you do.

ETP Barcelona – Turnamen Poker Paling Ikonik di Dunia di Tempat Paling Ikoniknya – Mata-Mata Kasino

Setelah satu tahun absen pada tahun 2017, ETP, yang sering disebut sebagai turnamen poker paling ikonik di dunia, akhirnya kembali. Di jeda dengan jadwal biasanya, tur 2018 akan berlangsung dari akhir Maret (dimulai oleh turnamen Sochi dari 23-29 Maret) hingga pertengahan Desember (dengan turnamen Praha dari 11-18 Desember).

Tidak ada keraguan bahwa kembalinya turnamen mencatat kegembiraan yang tidak sedikit dengan penggemar poker di seluruh dunia.

Sejauh ini, kami telah melihat banyak tindakan untuk menjaga tingkat kegembiraan tetap tinggi, dan itu berarti hal-hal baik akan akan datang selama sisa turnamen. Acara Sochi yang pertama kali adalah sukses yang meriah dan dengan tepat melihat pemain Rusia yang tumbuh di dalam negeri Arsenii Karmatckii membawa pulang trofi Acara Utama Sochi European Poker Tour (EPT). Dia naik ke posisi teratas di bidang 861 pemain untuk memenangkan hadiah utama RUB 27.300.000 (Number 331.746,98).

Selamat untuk instruktur selam Perancis Nicholas Dumont yang berhasil mengalahkan 777 lapangan untuk memenangkan $712.000 (Number 629.898.26). Rupanya, Dumont tidak dimaksudkan untuk bermain di turnamen tetapi menggantikan temannya Julien Perouse yang harus mundur pada menit terakhir.

Sekarang, ETP akhirnya kembali ke stadium paling legendarisnya, Casino Barcelona. Acara ini akan dimulai dengan ETP National yang berlangsung dari 22-26 Agustus (pembelian $ 1.100 / p 973). ETP Super High Roller akan berlangsung antara tanggal 25 dan 27 (pembelian $50.000 / p 44.234,43) dan Rol Tinggi EPT antara tanggal 31 dan two September (pembelian $10.300 / p 9.112,29).

Acara Utama ETP akan dimulai pada 27 Agustus dan berakhir pada two September dengan pembelian $ 5,300 (Number 4,688.85). Kami tidak punya alasan untuk mengharapkan apa pun kecuali liku-liku serta hasil yang mengejutkan di tempat bertingkat ini.

Tur ini akan berakhir dengan turnamen terakhir yang berlangsung di Casino Atrium Prague dari tanggal 8 hingga 18 Desember.

Acara Mendatang Terbesar di Dunia Poker – Juli 2018 – Mata-Mata Kasino

Kami baru saja melewati setengah jalan tahun ini dan telah mengalami tahun patokan kompetisi poker. Saat kita menuju ke babak berikutnya, inilah saatnya untuk menemukan arah Anda untuk memastikan Anda tidak melewatkan tindakan yang tersisa.

Pertama-tama, jika Anda belum mengikuti Acara Utama WSOP, Anda telah ketinggalan. Tabel terakhir diselesaikan dengan cara dramatis ketika Nicalos Manion menghancurkan pasangan raja Yueqi Zhu dan Antoine Labat dengan dua Experts. Labat pergi ke babak berikutnya dengan pincang sementara Zhu tersingkir. Tak perlu dikatakan, kami tidak akan menyentuh tombol kami saat kami memasuki hari-hari terakhir hingga klimaks pada tanggal 14 Juli.

ETP perlahan-lahan mulai hidup dengan dua acara paling ikoniknya yang akan datang dalam beberapa bulan mendatang. Pertama, kita akan menuju ke stadium yang paling terkenal: Casino Barcelona. Selanjutnya, kita akan menuju grand finale di Atrium di Praha. ETP adalah tambahan selamat datang untuk tontonan poker kami setelah mengambil cuti setahun pada tahun 2017.

Sering diabaikan, APT (Asian Poker Tour) adalah tur yang berkembang pesat yang dengan cepat mengejar rekan-rekannya yang menghadap ke barat. Saksikan dari 8 Agustus hingga 19 Agustus untuk salah satu leg terbaiknya, ATP Korean Championship di Paradise City Casino yang terletak di Incheon, Korea Selatan.

Acara utama akan disiarkan secara langsung.

Terakhir, CPPT (Card Player’s Poker Tour) menuju ke Ocean’s Eleven Casino yang terkenal dan ikonik dari tanggal 26 Juli hingga 29 Juli. Anda akan dapat melakukan loading langsung semua tindakan dari situs CPPT.

Chip Poker – Perbedaan Antara Chips Murah dan Mahal – Kasino Spy

Bagi sebagian orang, pemikiran tentang chip poker mahal mungkin tampak agak tidak masuk akal. Bagaimanapun, mereka hanya keripik. Seberapa berbeda mereka? Jawabannya mungkin akan mengejutkan Anda. Cari chip poker di situs mana pun dan Anda akan dapat melihat perbedaan harga yang sangat besar. Anda akan menemukan hasil yang berkisar dari beberapa dolar hingga ratusan (atau bahkan ribuan) pound.

Pada artikel ini, kami akan memberi Anda pandangan lebih dekat tentang apa yang dapat Anda harapkan dari set poker murah vs mahal dan apakah layak untuk meningkatkan set pribadi Anda.

Apa perbedaan chip yang murah dan mahal?

Selubung

Oke, jadi ini bukan faktor terpenting. Namun, tanpa casing yang tepat untuk chip Anda, Anda akan segera merasa kesal dengan betapa frustrasinya (dan berisik) saat membawanya ke mana-mana. Chip atau set poker yang lebih murah biasanya tidak memiliki casing yang bagus, jika ada.

Anda menginginkan kasing yang bagus dengan interior nyaman yang menata rapi dan mengatur pengaturan poker Anda. Ruang untuk kartu dan dadu Anda juga bagus. Plus, terlihat keren mengeluarkan kotak chip poker Anda di depan geng poker Anda. Casing perak metalik adalah yang paling populer, tetapi Anda dapat menemukan beberapa alternatif menarik.

Jumlah chip

Bahkan jika Anda hanya bermain untuk bersenang-senang di rumah, Anda akan membutuhkan jumlah chip yang cukup agar permainan tetap berjalan dengan lancar. Kecuali Anda bermain dengan sangat santai, Anda membutuhkan setidaknya 40 chip per orang. Jika Anda bermain dengan santai tetapi ingin meniru pengalaman seri yang lebih banyak, rekamlah setidaknya 50 per orang.

Jika Anda ingin bermain dengan taruhan tinggi atau membuatnya terasa seperti permainan di kasino sungguhan, bidik sekitar 70-100 chip. Ini akan memberi Anda banyak chip bernilai lebih kecil serta jumlah chip bernilai lebih besar yang layak untuk mencakup semua jenis pembelian, taruhan, dan taruhan.

Material, Berat dan Rasa

Inilah perbedaan paling nyata yang akan Anda alami antara chip murah dan mahal. Dengan chip kelas atas, Anda akan melihat peningkatan kualitas yang jelas terkait dengan rasanya. Keripik yang lebih mahal biasanya memiliki bobot yang lebih berat, dan Anda hampir dapat merasakan nilai uang Anda untuk menanganinya. Terserah Anda apakah Anda ingin tekstur yang halus atau kasar, dan Anda akan menemukan keduanya dalam kisaran harga berapa pun.

Di ujung bawah keripik, Anda kebanyakan akan menemukan keripik plastik atau tanah liat tiruan. Keripik plastik “supermarket” yang murah sangatlah murah, tetapi Anda bisa langsung merasakan kekurangan bahan tersebut. Keripik plastik murah juga terasa “kasar” dan kasar. Keripik tanah liat palsu sudah terasa seperti peningkatan yang cukup besar meskipun tidak membutuhkan biaya lebih banyak.

Dari kelas menengah hingga kelas atas, Anda sebagian besar akan berurusan dengan chip keramik atau komposit. Ini sudah terasa jauh lebih berat, kuat, dan lebih halus saat disentuh. Anda mungkin sudah menemukan beberapa chip kelas kasino di antaranya. Bagian atas chip poker biasanya terdiri dari chip tanah liat asli. Chip ini terasa sangat enak sehingga semua orang yang datang ke game Anda akan bermain longgar hanya untuk menanganinya.

Rancangan

Chip poker telah menjadi barang kolektor dengan sendirinya dengan banyak pemain menggunakan ini sebagai pertimbangan serius saat menjelajah. Tak perlu dikatakan, Anda tidak akan menemukan sesuatu yang menginspirasi di antara spektrum chip poker yang lebih murah. Mereka biasanya akan menjadi satu warna dengan cetakan sederhana atau rangkaian tercetak di sepanjang tepinya.

Anda harus melihat di kisaran menengah ke atas untuk apa pun yang menyerupai chip poker kasino sungguhan. Keripik keramik atau komposit sudah terlihat lebih baik karena kualitas bahan pembuatnya yang unggul. Chip sekelas kasino biasanya memiliki desain yang jauh lebih rumit dan bahkan mungkin menampilkan ukiran yang rumit.

Bahan / Fitur Khusus

Jika Anda benar-benar ingin tampil maksimal, Anda dapat menemukan chip kolektor khusus yang terbuat dari bahan yang tidak biasa. Anda mungkin membayar premi untuk chip ini; Namun, mereka pasti akan memberi Anda hak untuk menyombongkan diri di antara teman-teman Anda dan akan membuat awal yang bagus untuk koleksi Anda.

Misalnya, Anda dapat menemukan keripik tua yang terbuat dari gading yang kini semakin berkurang seiring dengan meningkatnya kesadaran akan konservasi. Anda juga dapat menemukan keripik dengan finishing atau ukiran emas, batu mulia bertatahkan, dll.

Jika Anda benar-benar ingin berlebihan, Anda dapat berinvestasi dalam satu set chip poker mewah oleh Geoffrey Parker yang akan membuat Anda mengembalikan sekitar £ 5,688,000 !!! Kami harus menambahkan bahwa chip ini dilapisi dengan emas putih (18 karat), 22.364 berlian dan datang dalam casing kulit buaya. Jika Anda tidak memiliki sedikit uang, Anda dapat menemukan beberapa set desainer khusus untuk £ 1.000- £ 2.000.

Harga

Terakhir, kita perlu berbicara sedikit tentang berapa biaya set poker ini. Seperti yang telah kita singgung sebelumnya, harga chip poker dapat bervariasi secara dramatis berdasarkan kualitas, material komposit, detailing, dll. Set termurah seharusnya hanya berharga beberapa pound untuk sekitar 100 (£ 0,02 per chip). Ini termasuk chip saja (tanpa casing atau ekstra apa pun).

Set yang layak dengan beberapa ratus chip kelas menengah, casing dan deck kartu + dadu harus dikenakan biaya antara £ 20- £ 100. Jadi, seperti yang Anda lihat, tidak mahal sama sekali. Chip Paulson adalah beberapa chip high-end terbaik dan paling direkomendasikan di pasaran dan akan menghasilkan sekitar £ 1- £ 2 per chip. Ini berarti bahwa jika Anda bersedia membayar beberapa ratus pound, Anda sudah mencari chip poker kelas atas.

Kesimpulannya

Seperti yang Anda lihat, estetika, hak menyombongkan diri, dan kesan VIP adalah satu-satunya perbedaan utama antara chip poker murah dan mahal. Itu berarti sepenuhnya terserah Anda apakah Anda ingin menyisihkan lebih banyak uang untuk set yang lebih mewah. Yang dapat kami sampaikan kepada Anda adalah bahwa Anda akan segera merasakan perbedaan bermain dengan chip berkualitas lebih tinggi. Namun, tidak ada yang bisa mereka lakukan yang tidak bisa dilakukan oleh keripik “supermarket” Anda yang murah.
