BestPoker is one of the new poker rooms of iPoker Network. BestPoker belongs to European gambling company BestBet Ltd, which exists since 2005. Poker room always used to be the part of Ongame (Network). As this network was shut down in the beginning of Autumn 2016, BestPoker moved/cnanged to GG Network in quite a short time (about a month).
From July 2020, BestPoker joined to iPoker Network. Network change work has been planned for a long time, but BestPoker was forced to hurry because of quarantine and the prohibition of online poker in Latvia. The company’s management decided to quickly change the platform, concentrating all their work on this task.
One of the perks of playing in the iPoker network is you never have to worry about the traffic. Only big websites with more than 5,000 players are even able to join the network, so the player pool is quite large. Most of the traffic comes from Europe, and especially the UK, so the traffic peaks during the evenings UK time.
BestPoker offers Texas Hold’em and Omaha variants, and also 6+ Hold’em. At NL Hold’em almost all of the cash tables are 6-max and heads-up with a few 9-seaters that barely get any attention. There is plenty of action on the micro and low stakes with dozens of tables running on NL20, NL40, plus another 8-10 tables on NL50 and NL100. You can also find another 6-7 full tables at all times on NL200 and NL400. The traffic whittles down only slightly at NL600 where only 5-6 tables fill up, and the numbers are similar on NL1000.
The heads-up traffic is pretty poor at micro stakes and starts getting better at low and mid stakes, where you can find a couple of tables to play. But in general, there isn’t much interest, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. Most players at BestPoker are amateurs and they lack the necessary skill to compete at the heads-up tables. As for Omaha, you can find 3-4 tables at micro and low stakes, and 1-2 at mid stakes. Similar to NLH, there isn’t much going on at the PLO heads-up tables.
The fast-fold variant Speed also has a good traffic at most times. The highest traffic can be found at NL50 up to NL200, with 50-70 players hitting the tables at peak hours. The SNGs are also favored at BestPoker and they fill up pretty quickly at micro and low stakes. Medium staked take a bit more, but you can still get decent action. The traffic dies down at the high stakes and you’re going to need a lot of patience to find an opponent there.
BestPoker also runs more than 200 tournaments every day including a fantastic Sunday lineup of large guarantees. Most of them are NL Hold’em, with the occasional PLO tournament thrown in.
