Pacific poker has grown tremendously in player volume the last year. It is one of the top eight sites when it comes to player volume. At peak hours there is as of March 2005 around 2200-2500 cash game players and 4500-5000 tournament players.
Pacific’s software has low quality compared to other online poker rooms, it isn’t possible to play at multiple tables and it’s very slow with disconnections at times. The games at Pacific Poker are first class however, which is the main reason to play there. The site is packed with loose and profitable games for the serious player. At the highest limit tables you can find games with 45-50 % of players seing the flop. Behind Pacific is one of the largest online casino sites, Casino-on-Net, and many casino gamblers play on Pacific.
As with all online poker rooms most games on Pacific are Texas Hold’em games, although they also have Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7-Card Stud Hi/Lo spread, there is probably more than 90% of the players at the Texas Hold’em tables.
Pacific’s rake is standard among other poker rooms in the industry and the support is good at answering emails. There is no live support and the telephone support has had complaints of being too slow.
All in all Pacific Poker is warmly recommended to any player looking for some of the loosest and softest poker games out there.
