PokerTime is the newest Chinese poker room launched at the end of 2019, which means the field is still non-reg flooded, and amateurs can yet be spotted at the tables. The main feature of PokerTime compared to the vast majority of other Asian poker applications is that players can create accounts and process deposits and withdrawals by themselves. Payments are processed at PokerTime via BTC/ETH.
PokerTime is a good option for NLH players looking for soft tables at medium and high stakes (up to NL1,5k).
As usual, the peak of traffic can be observed during the nights in Asia (mornings in America and midday in Europe). There are no independent clubs at PokerTime, and the entire pool of tables is visible to players in the lobby. The games are played in CNY.
At the time of writing this review (November 2019), almost all action at PokerTime focuses at 8-max tables as follows:
- 1/2(4) NL60$ - 22
- 2/4(8) NL120$ – 14
- 5/10(20) NL300$ – 9
- 10/20(40) NL600$ – 5
- 20/40 (80) NL1,200$ - 2
On weekends it is possible to spot high stakes action up to 25/50/100 (NL1,5k).
The PokerTime client is very similar to all Asian poker applications, and it's only available in Chinese.
Intuitive navigations button can be found at the bottom of the lobby, and the table's list includes important information for players such as the stake, number of players, and the time left for the game (as usual the tables are created for a limited time).
Above the tables, players can use filters by stakes. The deck and table theme can be customized.
There is not support for tracking software at PokerTime, but clicking on the player's avatar at the table will show basic information such as VPIP, PFR, and the number of hands played.
All deposits and withdrawals at PokerTime are processed by players on the platform using BTC or ETH, and then the balance must be exchanged to CNY. PokerTime charges a 0,0005BTC or 0,005ETH fee when processing withdrawals.
PokerTime is a great poker room for mid-stakes players up to NL1k, especially those willing to sacrifice support software in exchange for extremely weak fields. It's particularly suitable for players actively using cryptocurrencies for poker transactions.
