Carbon Poker

Posted by gambler101 on Jan 11, 2012 in online poker

Why playing at Carbon Poker versus any other online poker site? After all there are so many poker sites and they all seem to offer the same games, so how do you decide which on to choose and in particular why would you consider Carbon Poker at all?

The first thing to keep in mind is that the primary consideration is your geographical location. For example if you are based in the United States, then there are currently very few poker sites offering real money games, and Carbon Poker is the leading one. Except Carbon US online poker is a barren land. Bodog Poker was a nice contender but they just left the US market. Cake Poker still provides online poker tables to American players, but Carbon has more traffic and a more interesting platform. Basically after the major operators left, Carbon Poker is pretty much the only reasonable choice for American players. They have benefited from this situation and their traffic has more than doubled this year, so even a few pros have relocated to Carbon Poker. It is really gaining traction, so download Carbon Poker if you have not yet done so.

Now what if you are not a US based players? If you live in a few of the countries where online poker is regulated, like France, Italy or Belgium, then Carbon Poker does not yet have a licence to operate online poker games, so for you the question is irrelevant as you do not have access to Carbon. But if you live in any other country like the UK or Germany, then yes you can play at Carbon. Make sure to use a Carbon Poker bonus code when you register so that you are entitled to your new depositor bonus and all the perks that come with it, such as the freerolls for new players.

Now that we have cleared the topic of your location, what makes Carbon Poker an interesting room to play at? First of all, they have a bad beat jackpot and there are very few rooms offering that. The big players in bad beat jackpots where UB Poker and Absolute Poker, but now they are gone. This makes Carbon Poker the leader in this field. At the time of writing the jackpot is over $920k, so this is serious money we are talking about, as the winner (loser of the hand) gets a big portion of the jackpot.

Another enticing feature at Carbon Poker is that they offer side games such as Blackjack or Caribbean Stud, from the same gaming platform. So if you want to make a change from Texas Holdem or PLO once in a while, without registering and depositing to an online casino, then Carbon Poker is a good choice as you can do that with just a few mouse clicks. Finally Carbon Poker has never had a problem with the law or any cheating scandal. This is a well run reputable poker room where your bankroll will be safe. So why not giving it a try today, who knows you might add a few hundred thousand dollars to your banking account if you get a very (un)lucky bad beat.

All the poker babes

Posted by gambler101 on Jul 6, 2010 in online poker

What is happening with all the online poker rooms signing up pin ups or even porn stars? Is it the sign that the end is near?

In onlinevideopoker it is understandable that attractive women be used to attract attention. But what about poker pros and online poker?

Ok, there are a few legitimate poker pros that are super hot poker babes. Vanessa Rousso at pokerstars is probably the most gorgeous and sexiest poker babe on earth. But let’s not forget that she is a highly skilled poker pro, with millions of dollars under her belt. Liv Boeree at Ultimate Bet is another boiling hot poker pro, but remember that she just won the EPT San Remo, defeating a field of over 1,000 (mostly male) players and pocketing a cool €1,250,000.

There are a few more great looking female poker pros that are really talented poker pros. Annette Obrestad at Full Tilt Poker is a cute petite who has tons of male fans. Annie Duke at Ultimate Bet in not exactly young but still a beautiful brunette and certainly a force in poker. Jennifer Harman as well at Full Tilt is one of the most recognized female poker pros, attractive and profitable.

All the above and a few more are gems in the poker pro crowd and the online poker rooms that sponsor them are lucky to have them, as there are only a few.

But using porn stars to promote a poker room is clearly a bit of a stretch. Recently Carbon Poker has signed Elizabeth Shannon. This is somehow controversial (by the way you can see her nude on the Internet), but she did very well at the Heads-Up Championship, so let’s give her the benefit of the doubt.

Now Victory Poker is employing the services of 2007 playmate Sara Underwood. She is totally hot, this is clear. But can she play poker? She can learn. What about Samantha Ryan? If you do not know who she is, you guessed it correctly: a porn star, and Ultimate Bet recently hired her to play at the WSOP 2010.

All this is good for the gossips, and people love gossips, especially in poker circles. But let’s keep the game as clean as we can, please.
