Potato Poker review
Potato Poker is the latest Chinese poker room to arrive on the scene for Worldpokerdeals players. Potato Poker uses the same model introduced by PokerKing Asia (a Chinese application that changed the PokerMaster structure of several clubs to just one main club and a central cashier) or Red Dragon Poker. As for today, Potato Poker is a reg-free poker room because only a few affiliates are granting access to European and American players.
Low and mid-stakes players will find enough action at Potato Poker including a few PLO tables. Potato Poker is an application designed for mobile devices, and the client is available for iOS and Android. Our players will receive assistance to play at Potato Poker from a desktop PC.
The peak time at Potato Poker corresponds to the Chinese evening. During that time, over 25 tables are visible in the lobby:
NLHE (tables with a blue "Texas" label):
1/2(1) NL30: 18
2/4(2) NL60: 15
5/10(5) NL150: 6
10/20(10) NL300: 2
PLO (tables with a red "Omaha" label):
1/2(1) PLO30: 4
2/4(2) PLO60: 1
The number in brackets is the ante, and all tables have straddle equal to a big blind; therefore, a 1/2(1) table becomes a 2/4 one preflop. All NLHE tables are 8-max format and PLO is played 6-max format. All tables are part of the jackpot promotion, which gives prizes for getting strong hands (AAAA or better).
Potato Poker client is only available in Chinese language. The application is designed for mobile devices, but our players will get instructions to download and install the client on a desktop PC.
The tables are played in Crystals, an internal currency used to avoid legal problems. 1 Crystal = 1 CNY, and 1USD = 6,7CNY approximately. Potato Poker also uses Beans, another internal currency which is used to charge a small tax to sit-down at the tables. 620 beans = 6 crystals (CNY) and can be bought directly into the application (just by clicking on the beans icon in the settings tab). A 10% tax in beans is charged when sitting at a table (if the table buy-in is 200CNY, 20 beans are deducted).
All tables are visible from the lobby and filters can be used to narrow the table selection. At the tables, the 4-color deck can be chosen, and the table background can be changed; the bet buttons can be customized, and a hand-history is available to all players including observers.
At the moment there is no support software of HUD available for Potato Poker.
