ONLINE POKER - SITE - Absolute Poker
 
I love AP, I have been playing on the site for a few months and anytime I have a question or problem, they are right there. Great site. New players, check it out. I was playing multi-sites, now I have become a loyalist of sorts. Every day the site is upgrading. Also offers 6 man tables in ring games.

I love this site. They offer the most reloads around and some pretty loose games. I wish they had more traffic though.

this is my first real money site. i was practicing on party poker and the gaming club play money software for about a week or so, then i decided to join absolute because of the 35% bonus. The only thing i don;t like really is the fact that you cannot really play any other full screen software while this is laying because when it's your turn, the game window automatically steals focus, and there's no option to stop it from doing so. What this means is, if you're playing a role playing game or something int he background to pass the time between hands, it will automatically minimize that game. The problem lies in the fact that sometimes this really messes with both games. the pc might lock up for a little bit and you may lose your turn. not cool. im going to notify customer support of this to include an option to stop making the window steal focus, otherwise i am switching to the gaming club. I really do not like sitting around with my thumb up my you know where between hands on a 10 person table because i cant do anything else or else the program will mess everything up. Also, maybe i'm imagining things, but i could swear that the dealer program at this site deals you better cards the less you fold. I play very conservatively and it seems that after a while of getting junk pockets, i force myself to bid and try and make some cash as i'm getting killed just by the rake and blinds, and when i start to at least see the flop, it seems my pockets get better. fishy.

Absolute is one of the best sites out there. You can play many tables. The games are very loose. The interface is nice. The best thing about this site is that they give you more reloads than you know what to do with.

hench18 07-09-04 06:00 PM

Absolute is my first poker site and I am totally satisfied. They have corrected many of the minor issues I noticed with the program in the few months I have been there as well as upgraded their interface. I am not familiar with the issues of other sites so I can't say what minor things are common elsewhere, or if they are local to Absolute. Even though I may soon try another reputable site just for the expereince, I have no intention of ever leaving Absolute and recommend it to anyone interested in giving online poker a try.

evilhemp76 07-16-04 06:00 PM

Its pretty much the same as pokerstars. But pokerstars has better freeroll promotions. This site is ok,but if i had 2 choose between pokerstars and absolute poker,id play pokerstars.

zzzzzz22 07-17-04 06:00 PM

smoothly run site a lot less pauses that other sites and genuinely funny people to have a chat as you play

Purple Reign 07-18-04 06:00 PM

They have had three reload bonus offers in the six weeks since I signed up.You can usually find a game at or near thelimit you want to play.I do seem to notice an unusually amount of flushes at this site. I can't remember seeing so many four of a suit on the board as often as it occurs at Absolute.Cash-outs are very fast. I received my $900 cashout into my Neteller account in just over three hours.

blackhand 07-25-04 06:00 PM

Absolute is definitely moving up in the ranks. Their promotions department has really gone all out in the past few weeks and months to bring new players in with deposit bonuses (35% matching on first deposit in July '04, among many others...). These bonuses, combined with the automatic 10% rake rebate program available from another site make Absolute a very profitable place to play as well :)

firemedic77 08-15-04 06:00 PM

Good loose games. The promo is awesome. Wish it had more traffic, but that would also make it alot tougher lol.

johnsm11 09-19-04 06:00 PM

This site is a generic rip off of pokerstars...Why have a hamburger when you can have a steak...I would recommend saving your money at this site and play at a reputable site such as pokerstars, ultimatebet, or paradise poker.

delmale 09-24-04 06:00 PM

I have found this site to have the best graphics and a lot of lo buy-ins for tournaments. Been playing here for about 6 months now, and while I may play at another site once in a while, I can be found online here almost daily. I would recommend it without hestitation.

rudy/motown1/bigronnjanet3023 09-26-04 06:00 PM

nice and fast paced like it alot

ananomous 10-04-04 06:00 PM

Horrible run by thieves. Any time you cash out you will lose nearly every hand on the river. If you complain you will lose Every hand. Not just my opinion 3 of 4 people who play there will tell you the same. The other one never cashed out. New accounts will win more than they should. I have played 2 accounts one that cashed out and one that didnt. The new account will win the old account will not. When i started to play the new account rather than the old one they found out and froze the account. They still owe me the 800 that was in it.

ananomous2 10-14-04 06:00 PM

I agree with ananomous they are crooks.

james mann/ballplayer15/jamesm4 10-19-04 06:00 PM

hi my name is james/ballplayer15 and i heard about this from a friend and he told me that this cite was fun and he showed me how to get my bonus code and it is HPG10 and i hope to hear from you soon. thank you

BenjaminsClub 10-20-04 06:00 PM

I must say its a fun site. I like the set-up however when I went to set my Father up with it he found it to be way to confusing and just wants to stick to Ub. I found ordering a drink or doughnuts to be the thing that makes me want to stay there, I just wish I could have the coffee and the doughnuts on the same table. Found it took a couple minutes to fill a sng table.

PetteyTheft 10-24-04 06:00 PM

It has a lot of freerolls which are fun for people like me who like freerolls

ugaisthteam 10-27-04 06:00 PM

Well I can tell you that the people at Absolute Poker are about the most honest and fair people ive dealt with. I am proud to say that I will be representing AbsolutePoker in the 2005 World Series of Poker.

poker_expert 10-28-04 06:00 PM

i use this rate as the highest possible i could give it because quite simply another online poker site using software that is made to encourage hight bets and make the house rakes they would never get in rea live poker...everyone knows it and should sadly pay attention.

Adam Kline 11-02-04 06:00 PM

Best Free Money poker site.

cradunz 11-05-04 06:00 PM

Yeah, if you cash out they stick the knife into you and twist.....also, the table just looks terrible....

Unregistered 11-11-04 06:00 PM

Anybody heard of them using bots?

Bustyafool 11-16-04 06:00 PM

if you play absolute poker supply your own vasoline, cause you will get reemed in the buttox hard.

4THSTACES 11-16-04 06:00 PM

Good Poker Sight Havent Had Any Problems Here.the Only Thing It Could Use Is More Traffic.

rvmlp04 11-27-04 06:00 PM

i am getting emails that my avccount is credited but im still in fun mode plz help

plainoldsilly 12-06-04 06:00 PM

get out here for real money,youll never win.for fun $ it is the best online,sad but true.

roadhouse150 12-09-04 06:00 PM

this site has a big motivtion for money. i have seen so many bad beats in one touney that it makes you sick. you can have pocket aces and ace king king flop and you lose to 4 kings on the river. it cracks me up the only cool thing about the site is the $10 free thru homepokergames.com. my comment is play at your own rick because ther is a ton of dumb luck on this site.

partykid707 12-12-04 06:00 PM

the free $10 is great, the site is kind of slow but it has great freerolls almost every hour

partykid707 12-14-04 06:00 PM

I take back my last statment. This place is a fake and a fraud. I used the free $10 and turned it into $100 then i tried to cash out 50 of it and they said NO!!!!! the only way i can cash out is if i deposit $25 and then wait 30 days what kind of crap is that.

Dboy 12-17-04 06:00 PM

I like this site for the speed of play. There are a lot of experienced players here though, so if you're looking to clean house on the novice players, look elsewhere. I recommend CaribbeanSunPoker.com for the most fish on the Net.

IveyWannabe3. 12-27-04 06:00 PM

absolute has nice freerolls but are very hard to win with all the poker degenratess at the beginning of the tournament that outdraw you. Nice site thoug

being skulled 12-30-04 06:00 PM

Good for playing with fake money but as for real money get the hell out of there. For instance, in one hour's playing time i saw a 444 flop as well as a AAA and 222 flop. What kind of bs is this. Do not ever think you have it won as nearly anyone with draws will play to the river. Abnormal number of quads and flushes as well as AA. I honestly believe the computer knows which person will win the hand and decides accordingly. Horrible program and BEWARE. IF you want to play poker fly to Vegas b/c you will save a lot of money.

skipp 01-02-05 06:00 PM

This site has the worst support I have ever seen. Support does not respond to my emails. Support will NOT give me any bonus I qualified for when emailed. In all fairness I have won money at the site and cashouts were not a problem. The regular bonuses offered are paid without problems. If you are ever asked to email promotions for a bonus you might as well forget it.

bluffthreat 01-07-05 06:00 PM

iv played alot of sites, and boy do i like this site, well i tried getting the 10 dollars free not sure who else i got to email but the code is HPG10 and im not sure what else has to be done thanks

floydfanj 01-07-05 06:00 PM

Have to wait forever to get games going...there is never anyone playing omaha. They still have a lot of work to do.

BigShoesAAAA 01-09-05 06:00 PM

This site is a joke. So slow, so unbelievably slow. Tightest old lady type players I've ever seen. With 1,500 in start chips a 1 or 3 buck SNG takes 3 hours. Key to site: Any and all aces all the time. Rags, whatever just play them. Got three winning absolute crap hands in a row that didn't play, then kk on BB beat by A7 big stack. Next time around AA cracked by K7 big stack. (flop 77K). I got the gist of it lol. Fold all PP on blind, go all in 48 off. Wouldn't waste one more nickle on there. Oh and I did win 2 out of 3 SNG's if you wonder about my play. Just took 2-3 hours each one. NINE PLAYERS. Oh and the kicker? My first, and last day on site, saw FOUR QUADS. FOUR. I had two of them myself. All on same table in same hour. Next table another two quads. Consistently flop down 333 222 aaa on flop. Just shook my head as deleted software. Dont bother going there.

sawseyetake 01-10-05 06:00 PM

hey all if you just want to make a lot of cash u need to play live not on AP. Unless u just deposited and u cant seem to lose until u withdraw and then u will recieve the worst 1 and 2 out beats on the river constantly. Tell me who the hell rated them the best and most trusted lol i surely didnt must have been dicfers. Save time just flush your cash down the toilet.

pureform 01-15-05 06:00 PM

once a week asking if i want to deposit money. This site is RIGGED! They dish out bad beats all the time to speed up play. they set you up to go all-in then bomb you on the river so they can rake more cash. AA will lose to 72 every time. THIS IS NOT REALISTIC POKER!!! BEWARE!!

david mcgurn/ daviemc 01-24-05 06:00 PM

terrific site,some bad sites out there. this is the best by far.
