Such world leaders of online poker industry like PokerStars and 888Poker unalterably attract more and more visitors. This is due to the great number of visitors in these rooms, variety of games and stakes, huge number of different promotions and bonuses. However, popular poker rooms attract the experienced poker players who are present there in big numbers in comparison with the fish. That’s why it is getting harder to win in the poker rooms with the big number of visitors, especially at the middle and high stakes.
If you are looking for a softer field, we’d like to suggest you sign up to such poker rooms like Vbet, PokerSharks and KingsClubPoker. These poker rooms are less popular, have a smaller number of visitors and the selection of the games isn’t great here. However, due to their low popularity, they lack regulars and attract mostly addicted recreational players. That’s why play in these poker rooms could turn out to be much less profitable than the one at the tables of the leading poker rooms.
Vbet Poker is a new poker room from Armenia with the peak number of players at 500-700 – and this peak time is in the evening MSK. MTT with the buy-ins at 0.05 to 100 Euro are the most popular games here. Overlay tournaments happen very often here, there are also freerolls and satellites (including the ones to the live events)
Vbet offers high-quality software for desktop installation. It allows quickly finding the game you need based on the parameters you set, effective multi-tabling, changing the looks of the tables, seat selection and setting up betting sizes. The room doesn’t support tracking software, like Hold’em Manager and PokerTracker, that is a disadvantage for the regulars and has a positive effect for the beginners.
