Players looking for Texas Hold’em and Omaha are at the right place, but there are no diversions into Razz, HORSE, or any of the other poker variants that are gaining in popularity at other online poker rooms. At Betfair Poker the choices are Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, and that’s it.
There are as many as 1,200 cash game players logged on during peak hours at Betfair Poker, and most of them are to be found in the small stakes Texas Hold’em limit games.
The Rake at Betfair Poker is fairly standard. The industry standard is a 5% rake with a $3 or $5 cap (based on limit.) At Betfair it is a $3 max. Most small stakes games won’t see anywhere near that limit in rake, and Betfair also sports the “no flop, no drop” policy, which means no rake is taken if a pot is won before the flop.
The play is practically all Texas Hold’em, and you will find all sorts of players at these tables. The Omaha games tend to have tighter players, except for the few fish that are trying things out for the first time. The looser games are in the low limit cash and tournament games.
Players should check the Frequently Asked Questions section of the site where they will find many of the answers they need. If the FAQ doesn’t have the answer, the crack customer support team will, which can be contacted via email or phone.
