Fish Poker review
Fish Poker is a new Chinese application added to our menu at the end of spring 2019. The application has been working since last year but the access was very private so far. It works on the same principles as PokerMaster and other dozens of poker apps from the Asian country.
The games are played at private clubs where the tables are created for a certain period and using an internal currency which is given the value of 1 CNY. Given the fact that Fish Poker is new on the market, it is characterized for having a more advanced software and being reg-free at the moment.
Worldpokerdeals is one of the few affiliates working with Fish Poker for the overseas market. The poker room is growing, and the number of soft clubs available is getting larger every day.
At the moment of writing this review (May 2019), all the traffic at Fish Poker is concentrated at NLH tables in 8/9-max format. There are many clubs in Fish Poker, but they all have in common that they don't have lots of traffic, which is good for keeping the lineups soft; according to the room rules, one club can't have more than 1,200 players.
During the Chinese peak traffic (American mornings or early evenings in Europe), usually 10-12 tables can be found at 2/4, 3/6, and 5/10 stakes (NL60-NL150); we have spotted higher stakes, but the action is not regular. Usually, the playing time is 4-6 hours.
If you sit at a table, you must play at least 60 hands. This rule applies to all Fish Poker players including Worldpokerdeals ones. All the tables have ante and straddle.
Many Fish Poker clubs host daily tournaments with buy-ins starting at $50.
The Fish Poker client is available in English, although is not 100% translated yet, and it's very similar to other Chinese poker rooms. The menu at the bottom gives access to the table in the lobby, club list, account settings, and game statistics.
The filter button is located above the "Me" menu and allows you to select tables by format, stake, and players.
In the lobby, all information is available at one glance, including stake, players, and remaining game time.
The players can adjust the bet sizing, change the deck (including a 4-color one), table theme and other customization options directly at the tables. Vertical or horizontal table alignment can be changed too.
Our players will receive a special discount to acquire a hand converter which enables HUD at the Fish Poker tables.
All transactions at Fish Poker are processed by our agency using the most accepted payment systems (Skrill, Neteller, ecoPayz); Bitcoins are also supported.
We cannot offer money guarantees at Fish Poker; therefore, we recommend our players to keep the minimum necessary amount of money at the room.
As usual, a small fee is applied to all profit withdrawals at Fish Poker. Our support team will confirm the withdrawal fee when requesting accounts.
Fish Poker is currently one of the weakest online poker rooms with low to mid-stakes action at 8/9-max tables. We recommend Fish Poker to bumhunters looking for weak lineups on the Chinese market.
As we cannot offer money guarantees, we ask our players to consider the risks before playing at Fish Poker carefully.
