Pacific Poker

What is pacific poker like? I have some money in my Poker Stars account but a coworker keeps telling me how much money he is making as Pacific. Should I take a break from PS and hope on to Pacific.

Has the worst players and the worst software on the planet. Count on getting disconnected a few times and losing pots. Also count on losing your flopped AK two pair when a guy spikes running tens on the turn/river to beat you.

I've been having pretty good success at their $10+1 NL 10-person tournaments. In the money (top 3) about 60% and have won a few as well. Started with $100 and an around $215 at the moment.

The "fast" tourneys suck though, given how quickly the blinds go up.

And I've yet to be disconnected there, so YMMV

One thing about Pacific that sucks (besides the worst poker software on the planet) is that they rake uncalled bets. If you play ring games, watch out.

I didnít know that about the rake. Of course, I havenít played there for maybe 2 years.

This is the same mentality (for want of a better word) that their sister site uses to punish Neteller users. Casino-on-Net requires 5x more to clear a bonus if you use Neteller.

Theyíre evil.

Just for shits and giggles, I deposited $100 here on Saturday just to fuck around with. Currently at $240. These guys here suck. I love people who bluff-cap the river for you while you hold the nuts.
