Black Chip Poker review
BlackChipPoker is a flag site of the Winning Poker Network (WPN), long-established as a stable platform both for amateurs and poker professionals.
WPN firmly ranks No. 2 in the list of the networks that accept the US players. BlackChipPoker, as befits the flag site, incorporated all the advantages of the Winning network and became its main source of the new traffic.
BlackChipPoker is aimed at the American market, thus all the games are played only in USD and the peak times fall on evenings EST. In these hours, the number of connections approximates 1,300, substantial part of which are the amateurs, but it's worth noting that after the "Black Friday" it was exactly WPN that many US high stakes professionals turned to.
Short tables of NLHE mid-stakes gather players at 12 tables of NL100–NL600 (including 2–3 CAP tables). At NL1K and higher we observed 2–3 tables almost at any time of day.
PLO-traffic on the average is much better than in other small networks. Apart from the micro-stakes, in peak times there's action at 7–8 tables of PLO100, 5–6 tables of PLO200 and 2–3 tables of PLO400–PLO1K. One of the advantages of the network is also a good traffic in heads-up games both in NLHE and in PLO: 7–8 tables at 100+ stakes in peak. The games of SNG higher than $60 are barely seen, while at the same time there is traffic in MTTs, and tournaments with up to $1 mil. guaranteed, and sometimes the overlays take place too.
A very important innovation of 2015 were the Jackpot SnGs, analogue to Spin&Go. Available are the stakes of 2/5/10/40 USD. The traffic is estimated only positively. Moreover, in fact, Winning is the only site except Pokerstars where you can find action higher than $10.
The software of BlackChipPoker complies with the modern trends. You can find all the necessary functions, options and proprietary features (like cash and tournament lobbies in different windows).
The tables are highly suitable for serious multi-tabling, they are easily customized and resized. The lobby is designed for the ease of searching and choosing the game.
The software could be surely graded an "A" if not for little lags of the tables.
The Holdem Manager and PokerTracker are supported by BlackChipPoker.
The majority of the usual ways to deposit or withdraw are available: bank cards, Skrill, Neteller and Bitcoin. However, as the network is pro-American, the usual options for the Russian-speaking players are not supported (Webmoney, Qiwi and so on).
BlackChipPoker is a leading site of the WPN network, a strong player on the modern market of online player. One of few opportunities to play with the American amateurs, offering high security, reliability and reputation. The usual payment systems are available, the software is not so frustrating and the action suits the needs of the majority of players. WorldPokerDeals, in its turn, offers great terms of the return and full support.
