Cristal Poker review
Cristal Poker is the largest skin belonging to the actual veteran of gambling industry — the Enet network. In its days, the network boasted its high traffic and regular action up to NL5L. Enet got through numerous difficulties with honor and nowadays represents a relatively small network with one of the softest lineups, mainly consisting of Italian amateur players, and maintains a reputation of a stable, time-proven poker provider.
Enet is focused on the European players, thus the traffic peak times fall on evenings CET and the weekends. All the games are played in EUR. The vast majority of players are Italian amateurs, who in most cases just wandered in the poker-room from the casino, also included in the network. Most of the games bear resemblance to those of the live games, and the average level of opponents brings back memories of the good old 2007.
The action above NL100 can't be called regular, but in the peak times you can manage to find several tables of NL200–NL2k. NL100 per se can easily offer over 7 excellent lineups. About 10 tables are played at NL50, and about 3 dozens of tables are found at NL25 and lower stakes. A part of tables is anonymous. 4-max tables, along with 6-max tables, enjoy great popularity among players. HU tables are also available, mainly at the very same low-stakes. And finally, incorrigible short-stackers will enjoy tables with buy-ins of 20bb.
Omaha players of up to PLO50 will be able to find about 4–5 tables at Cristal Poker. Also there's action at higher PLO stakes almost every day, which is usually represented by 2–3 tables of PLO100–PLO400.
The network is absolutely of no interest for SNG-lovers, but grinders of inexpensive МТТs will be amused by the number of regular tournaments with guarantees of about 1–25K and numerous series of МТТ like Poker Festival and Wild West.
The Enet's software is far from being perfect, but it can't be called lousy: intuitive and attractive lobby, customizable and resizeable tables — all this is available. Though the lack for some features that have already become standard is visible to the eye: there's no auto-timebank and rebuys have to be made manually. Therefore, the room will hardly suit the monsters of multi-tabling, but wide variety of options for visual setting and customization will carry away the downsides of the room for other players. We believe that the client program is totally playable if you open not more than 8 tables simultaneously.
Initially, the room does not support the Holdem Manager and PokerTracker SW, but our players, as usual, are eligible for a special hand converter for Cristal Poker.
The key feature of Cristal Poker — no need to verify the Skrill, Neteller and ecoPayz accounts, given that the details of the room and Skrill accounts fully coincide. Only in case of bank cards the Security Department will ask you to provide the scans of your ID and the card, and the statement on last transactions made with this card.
You are able to withdraw the funds to the very same Skrill, Neteller and ecoPayz. There are no restrictions for deposit, and the cashout limit is 500 EUR/day and 7,000/month. At that, Cristal Poker does not impose any charges on the deposits or withdrawals. By the way, the money is withdrawn within 3 business days.
Cristal Poker is a worthy option for players of stakes up to NL100, regulars of PLO low-stakes, and bum hunters both of PLO and NLHE. The softest lineups will surely smooth out downsides of the room's interface and rather high rake. Finally, our deal along with a private rake-race is a perfect way to enhance your profit.
