50PLO Option for US Players
MemberMarch 13, 2021 at 4:02 pm
Good morning! Any opinions on what might be the best option for US players at 50PLO in terms of rake and player pool? I have dabbled on Ignition and play some mixed games and big O on SwC, but haven’t looked at any of the other sites yet.
I have Divehud for Ignition, and was wondering if it’s good enough for use on other sites, or do I really need to get HEM or Poker Tracker?
Thanks in advance for any advice you may have to offer.

Best plo cash games that I’ve played on US sites is Global Poker, as far as player pool goes. I’ve been playing there for about 3 years now, and have played Ignition, ACR, and Chico, mostly mid-stakes. I haven’t played the plo50 in awhile but I’m guessing the games are still quite good.

Thank you! I will look into it. Any idea why this site isn’t mentioned in the list of US-friendly sites on the twoplustwo forums? Is it just less popular?

They actually have a sponsored forum in 2p2, which ACR doesn’t even have anymore due. The reason I like them over the other sites is that they are actually operating in a legal model in the US. Their legal loophole is that you purchase their virtual currency, and they give you “Sweeps coins” for “free”, which is the real money currency you withdraw. Check it out on 2p2 lots of info there.
The main drawback from their site is that they offer no rake back at all, and no HUDs. So yes if you want to use a HUD, go to Iggy, Chico, ACR etc. Just be prepared for much tougher games (I’ve grinded every US option aside from the Apps, and have found the games much easier on global).
GL wherever you go! FYI, I have no financial interest in Global, just trying to get a bigger playerbase.

Wow, you’re right. How did I not notice that?! Thanks for the reply. Will look into it more.

Did you read this article yet? https://blog.plomastermind.com/plo-poker-tactics/restricted-countries/
This might help you find alternative sites playing from the US and see which one fits best. Site specifications are highlighted as well as their pros and cons in general.
I checked and DriveHUD is supported on the three largest networks, Chico (BetOnline), WPN (Americas Cardroom) and Ignition as you mentioned.
If you have any specific questions, feel free to shoot me a direct message on Discord @TomSmeets#5554, I’m happy to help you. Thanks!

This article is extremely helpful! Thanks so much.
I’m doing the 10-week transformation course, and am worried I may miss a few steps if I end up playing on site that HEM3 doesn’t support. This may influence my decision.
