PokerClans is a new Chinese poker application, very similar to PokerMaster or PokerKing Asia, with a main differentiator: until today (December 2018), it is the only mobile Asian application offering MTT (Multi-Table Tournaments) and SnG (Sit&Go) action.
PokerClans was developed for mobile devices, such as iPhone, iPad, and Android, but it is also possible to play from a PC using Android emulators. Our team would be glad to assist any player who asks for support to install the required software.
The PokerClans application is only available in Chinese, but for our players, we have created a friendly-user manual to understand the interface.
There is no bankroll guarantee at PokerClans. We advise our players just to keep the necessary money in the application to play comfortably.
On the SnG lobby, the traffic during the peak time (Chinese evenings) is:
- ¥50CNY ($7USD): 15 tables
- ¥100CNY ($14USD): 5 tables
- ¥300CNY ($43USD): 3 tables
- ¥500CNY ($72USD): 2 tables
- ¥800CNY ($116USD): 3 tables
All the SnG have a turbo or hyper-turbo structure (blinds increase every 3 or 5 minutes).
A 1% fee is deducted for the first two positions of the SnG.
MTT tournaments are played from ¥10CNY ($1,5USD) up to ¥800CNY ($116USD).
Our last traffic scout revealed the following MTT tournament ongoing:
- 177 players, 50CNY
- 224 players, 100CNY
- 463 players, 10CNY
- 541 players, 300CNY
- 964 players, 500CNY
The prize structure reserves usually 15-25% for the tournament winner, 8-15% for the second place and 5-10% for the third position. Rebuys are allowed during the first 10 levels (blinds increase every 5, 8 or 10 minutes) of the tournament and the initial stacks go from 10k chips up to 15kchips, the first level has blinds 25/50.
OFC tables are played from $0,3 per jackpot up to $1,160.
PokerClans works on iOS (in order to install the program on iOS, you will be asked to grant permissions to allow the program to make changes) and Android, and its interface is only available in Chinese. As usual, the traffic is very soft, and the tables are full of Chinese recreational players.
We have tested PokerClans on Windows and Mac OS with good results using the following emulators:
- Big Nox, Windows, and Mac OS (only one table at Mac OS)
- LDPlayer (formerly Momo), Windows
All the games are played in CNY (Chinese renminbi ¥), $1USD = ¥6,9CNY.
Playing at PokerClans could be challenging for those players who are not familiarized with the Asian poker apps (for example, PokerKing Asia experience is a big plus), but for those newcomers to the Asian poker world, we have created the following manual for the PokerClans interface.

Nowadays PokerClans is the only option to play MTT and SnG on Chinese applications. Up to 1,000 players on MTT and permanent action on SnG makes of PokerClans a very good choice for those looking for the softest Asian fields to play tournaments. We cannot offer bankroll guarantee at PokerClans and because of this, we recommend to keep just the necessary amount to play.
