Absolute Poker Review

Play Absolute PokerAbsolute Poker has been around for a while and is most famous for some faux pas in its history, but now it is moving forward with new ownership and has been merged with Ultimate Bet.

It was already possible to transfer funds between these two sites, but towards the end of 2008, the two sites completed their move to a new poker network, Cereus, which has greatly increased their base of players and the numbers of those playing.

Cereus' new motto is "Bigger. Badder. Better." and in general you can't disagree, with Absolute Poker offering a general high-quality place to play poker, with user-friendly software allowing you to experience fantastic play.

Absolute Poker ReviewAbsolute Poker software has undergone some changes due to the merger and now allows you everything you would expect from one of the big players in the online poker market - fast play, excellent graphics, well done statistics functions and fantastic functionality for multiple tables.

They also offer an excellent variety of games, including Texas Hold'em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud and Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo, H.O.R.S.E, H.O.S.E. and Razz. Most players are still drawn to Texas Hold'em and the shorthanded games in particular, but Omaha is attracting increasing numbers of players, along with the mixed games.

Overall, Absolute Poker's new owners have come up with a poker room of very high quality that boasts fast, reliable software, and combining what it has to offer with Ultimate Bet will only take it further and higher.

Players are not blind to this fact, either, as the real-money player statistics at May 2009 show peak hours to have 1800 ring-game players and 9000 tournament players in action.
