AbsolutePoker software and network

Absolute Poker uses its own custom software, and is not part of any network. Although recently, VegasPoker247 launched using the absolutepoker software and player base, so technically
that does make them a network. Either way, player numbers are respectable and Absolute Poker is firmly in the second tier of poker rooms in this respect, with up to 20,000 players logged in at peak times.

The Absolute poker software is fully functional and reasonably fast and easy to use. The tables are 9 seat instead of the more usual 10 seat ones. The short-handed tables are the standard 6 seater ones.
However, they still use a full size table, which is nice.

Players can upload their own picture to use as an avatar at the tables. Other functions includes a ‘player note’ function, which is useful, but is becoming standard at most rooms now.
AbsolutePoker also has the Replay utility which is very useful, especially for beginners. The chat function can be moved from the small window to its own window, and includes the ability to use smiley faces or emoticons if you wish. Of course,
all sorts of statistics about your play are available at the tables.

The games stakes at Absolute range from a high of $150/$300 limit and $10/$25 no limit, with Holdem, Omaha, 7 card Stud and Razz available, as well as Blackjack.
