Poker Games Offered
Limit, and No Limit Holdem, Pot Limit Omaha, Limit Omaha, Omaha 8/b
Limits and Rake
There is always a $20/$40 Holdem game going, and at peak times a $50/$100 game is live as well. Micro limit tables are always in play for every game, and all games are offered at limits anywhere from .05/.10 to the aforementioned $50/$100.
The rake at Doyle’s Room is in line with the competition. Generally, a 5% rake, with a $1 – $3 cap is the rule. Shorthanded games have an abbreviated cap to allow for more play. Micro limit, and a “No Flop, No Drop” policy make Doyle’s Room an excellent choice with respect to the rake collected. Caps on the rakes are similar to that of other sites, and in line with industry standard.
Though fairly new on the scene, Doyle’s Room has a solid average of 2,000 – 4,000 players online at any given time. Holdem games at most limits are usually available, and the tournament choices are many, as new tournaments start as often as every 10 minutes. Single table tournaments at low limits fill fairly quickly, but the wait can be significant at high limits.
Action is easy to get, and the navigation of the room is simple. Tabs allowing for quick navigation of the site are easy to understand, and the tables are easy to get to. Actual game play at the tables is smooth, and it seems that you see less of the waiting, and beginner game play mistakes made at many of the larger sites. Pop up “reminder” windows can be pesky, but they aren’t in a distracting location on the screen, and they disappear in ten seconds or so.
Doyle’s Room accepts Visa, Mastercard, Neteller (note the 10% bonus bump mentioned above), Firepay, and wire transfers.
