High Stakes Poker review
High Stakes Poker is a young poker room created in 2018. Its team is composed by the famous British online professional Luke Schwartz and Joseph Cheong who finished 3 in the WSOP Main Event bank in 2010.
In the beginning, the room was part of the Good Game Network, but from November 5, 2018, it switched to the Tonybet Network. The idea of the High Stakes Poker owners is to honor its name: giving the possibility to play high stakes against professionals and businessmen at any time of the day and having several functionalities like a variety of Deposit and withdrawal methods, P2P transfers, fixed exchange rates, VIP-system, etc.
Today High Stakes Poker gives you access to NLH and PLO tables up to €250/€500 blinds, and the chance to request special tables with restricted access.
Mainly European players play at High Stakes Poker, so the peak traffic corresponds to the nights in Europe or the evening in America. The tables are played in euros.
Most of the traffic corresponds to 6-max Hold'em tables, starting at NL10-50 where usually 10-15 tables are visible at the lobby.
NL100 and NL1k tables are available during peak time. Usually, 2-3 tables of PLO25-PLO50 are also played.
The most expensive tables belong to NL2,5k / 5k / 10k / 20k / 50k stakes.
During the peak time, over a dozen Chinese Poker (OFC) tables are available with a jackpot up to 1€.
The High Stakes Poker client is the same as the other Tonybet network rooms, it only differs in the dark color of the lobby and the tables.
OFC is located in a separate tab. There are three filters in the cash games menu, also you can choose tables in the lobby, use waiting lists and it's possible to see the players’ nicknames
Your bet sizes can be customized and the card deck can be changed in settings (something unique for this room).
There is no tracker support for High Stakes Poker yet.
High Stakes Poker supports the following payment processors: Skrill, Neteller, ecoPayz, WebMoney, Bitcoin, and Bank transfer.
The maximum transaction amount can be individually negotiated with players. Usually, withdrawals to e-wallets are processed during the day and for large amounts up to several days.
The High Stakes Poker action suits for mid-stakes players looking to bum hunt against amateur players. The high stakes games development announced by the room will allow players to get access to high stakes action.
