Poker rooms for American players?
MemberSeptember 25, 2020 at 10:18 pm
I’m a player in the US, that doesn’t live in Nevada or New Jersey. I’m sure there’s plenty of players here in a similar boat. It’s a bit of slim picking for us to find poker rooms. I’ve tried Bovada, ACR, and Pokerbros but they all have huge drawbacks. Bovada doesn’t let you see who you are playing, pick tables, or even sit down with more than 100BB. ACR doesn’t seem to have much PLO action and pokerbros doesn’t easily give you hand histories.
Are there other options that folks are using for small to mid stake plays, plo 50- 500. I’m sure tons of people could benefit from the insights!

Hi @gareth ,
Good points, let me try to help.
Your regular site options basically consist of Bovada/Ignition, ACR and BetOnline.
Bovada has anonymous games as you point out but out of these three options it offers the softest games. ACR offers probably a bit less PLO action but is the only one with a solid rakeback option. As a result it attracts more pros and games are therefore the worst of this selection. BetOnline is an in-betweener in that regard, with no rakeback system in place but soft games and with a hand converter you can import your hand histories into Hold’em Manager. It’s also a partner of our Black Card programme (more info: https://plomastermind.com/black-card/) where you can earn additional cash rewards in our weekly rake chase leaderboard.
A lot of Americans are playing in the poker apps like for example Pokerbros, Upoker and PP Poker. If you want to have a look at our current offer for those apps let me hear please. Note that Hand2Note is able to track your hand histories on Pokerbros.

Hey Tom yeah good point. It seems like everything is aggregated around those three sites & Pokerbros. Everyone I know now plays with the poker unions. I think this makes table section way more important as the skill level varies, wildly amongst the unions. Does Mastermind have some deal with any of the unions?
