Pacific Poker - PacificPoker.com Review
Established in 1999 and as the sister site to
Pacific Poker is one of the oldest and most trusted
poker rooms online. In my experience,
PacificPoker.com has the softest low limit games that
can be found. Recently they added no limit ring games and they
have tournaments with a wide range of buy ins as well. Check out
their site for the latest bonus offer of 25% up to $100 and

Limit Texas holdem is spread from .05/.10 to 30/60 with plenty of full games at all levels, including 30/60. Pot limit Texas holdem is available with buy ins from 10 to 200. No limit Texas holdem runs with buy ins from 10 to 600. The no limit games also always have full tables at every buy in. As mentioned above, the majority of games at Pacific Poker, especially at the lower limits are very soft. Just by playing tight pre flop you can do very well, even if you are still working on the rest of your game.
Omaha high is only available in limit play, with limits ranging from .05/.10 to 30/60. There is action at these tables, particularly at the lower limits, but there is not much game selection. Upon a recent check, there were six Omaha high tables running, and none of them were completely filled.
Omaha/8 is also only available in limit, from .05/.10 to 30/60. There is a little more action at the Omaha/8 tables than at the Omaha high tables, but not much. Most of these games are filled with holdem players who are looking to try something different, so they can be very profitable.
7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud high low split are available in limit only from .05/.10 to 30/60. The 7 Card Stud games run full at many limits but the only 7 Card Stud high low split games are at the lowest limits.
Single table tournaments, or sit n go tournaments, are available with buy ins from 1.50 to 785, with most of them running six and ten handed. Of course there are also multiple multi table tournaments every day and they run a $50,000 and $100,000 tournament every week with satellite tournaments starting at only 1.10.
Though Pacific Poker has improved their software a great deal, it is still not one of my favorites. In addition, their payouts are slow compared to other sites, often three to five days. I have always received exactly what I was supposed to, so I trust them, it is just a little slow. They have a free download of their software and they also have a no download version available for Mac and Linux users. That being said, even with the average software and slow payouts, the softness of the games make it all worthwhile. I highly recommend trying them out to at least clear the bonus and see for yourself.
