Software and Network

Poker Com is now called PDCPoker.com and is part of the Merge Gaming Network, and it was actually the first room on this network. PDC stands for poker dot com.

Player numbers at PDCPoker have grown quite quickly since ‘black Friday’ which reduced the number of poker rooms that accept Americans.

The games stakes at range from a high of $50/$100 limit and $25/$50 no limit, with Holdem, Omaha, 7 card Stud and 5 card stud, and Razz, 5 card draw and badugi available, as well as Blackjack.

Not many rooms offer 5 card draw poker. PDCPoker offers pot limit and limit 5 card draw with stakes from $0.05/$0.10 to $10/$20 but there aren’t many players there currently.

The software is simply outstanding and is where this poker room really shines. The graphics are very good, the software is sleek and fast, and the game play is smooth and uninterrupted.

The usual features are of course present, like chat feature, hand history and player notes.

But it’s the extras that are really worth noting. For example, the Rabbit Hunt. If you win a hand before the river card is dealt, players have the option of clicking the ‘Rabbit Hunt’ button to see what cards were on the way. Another exclusive feature is the ability to ‘Expose One Card’ – you can let your opponents know you weren’t bluffing by showing your ace without showing your deuce kicker! Or do it the other way around to really annoy them! To sample all the unique features you’ll have to download the Poker.com software.

American Players.

While some rooms on the Merge Network continue to accept American players, and PDC Poker is one of them, there is a temporary block on new sign-ups due to an overload of recent sign-ups. This block we are told will be lifted sometime in the middle of July.
