Sportsbook Poker review: Father Ashley's first impressions

Whoever invents a truly user-friendly lobby for poker websites will be a wealthy person. They are always impossible to navigate cleanly. The more successful the site, the worse the problem is: there's always too many choices, tourneys, tables. You can filter out the ones you don't need. Anyway, it's no better or worse than most and poker players are probably used to the lobby system by now.

When you first establish an account, you have to choose a screen name and avatar. If you choose a female avatar, be sure to have access to a website selling plus-size bras: they are really beyond tastefully endowed...

The site accepts credit card, MoneyBookers and UseMyWallet for deposits.

The gameplay tables are nicely designed and there's a surprising feel of space, considering how much is going on (all poker tables have a lot going on, but some feel really claustrophobic with it).

You probably won't notice the difference, as you'll be too busy ogling big-chested avatars; not even the dealer is immune (she looks like a Austrian serving girl, complete with traditional dress!).

I liked the fact that when people sit out from the game, the avatar reflects this, sitting back, crossing their arms or some other detail. Nice touch.

The USA Sportsbook Poker hand history is very "handy", with a clear, large window and the ability to scroll back through various hands to see your good (and bad) folds. The card graphics could be a little larger on this history screen, but it's well designed and easy to read.

Graphics and sound are excellent. I found myself smiling a couple of times; rare at poker sites, I can tell you. The round of applause is always good for a grin and miles ahead of the dismal Party Poker celeb sound FX.

USA Sportsbook Poker: player notes

I LOVE the player notes feature on USA Sportsbook Poker. Review each player by clicking on the NOTES tab at bottom left; you can select a player by drop-down menu and then assign a coloured light to them depending on whether they are a tight player, loose, hot etc. Very fancy and more importantly, very useful.

You can also access STATS, PROMOTIONS and OPTIONS from this part of the menu. It's nicely designed to keep them all together. Good thinking.

It's nice to see all-in hands revealled here. Much fairer than when they are not, as at some other sites.

As you play different games and limits, the "act in turn" buttons change. In no limit, you have half pot and all in buttons (I hate the all-in button on some sites, but USA Sportsbook Poker does not confirm the bet until you press again). You have to click the amount AND confirm the raise later. Nice idea.

Sportsbook Poker: wait for a big pair before moving all-in...The USA Sportsbook Poker first deposit bonus is a HUGE 100% (YES, one hundred per cent!) up to $650 maximum! They are quite reasonable about the FPPs needed to earn your bonus, which is as usual paid out in $10 increments. One dollar raked = 1FPP or part thereof.

Mutli-table three $0.10-0.20 NL tables and you should clear at least $10 per hour, if not nearer $20, depending on the craziness of the pots.

Sportsbook Poker review: Promos, games and player traffic

You can play Texas Holdem, Omaha Hi, Omaha Hi-Low, 7 Stud Hi and 7 Stud Hi-Low. Nothing more exotic is currently offered, but that's fine by me to be honest. Most of the crazy games are for mugs.

No limit games are offered from $0.02-0.04 all the way up to the titanic $25-50NL, big enough for more than 99.9 per cent of all players. If fixed limit is your bag, you can start out at $0.04-0.08 and build all the way up to $100-200.

This USA Sportsbook poker site has a fantastic array of tourneys, including $1000 Wednesdays ($1000+50 to buy in), regular satellites to WSOP packages and many, many more. You can play SNGs all the way up to $5,000 per seat. Nice range.

There's plenty of imagination in the company's promotions. Here's a sample. Play at WSOP4FREE cash tables and, if you hit four of a kind or better, you get a free seat in a satellite to the Main Event of the WSOP. Hit a Royal Flush on the same table and you automatically win an 8GB iPod Touch!

I found Sportsbook Poker's explanation of their promotions way, way better than Cake Poker (review here). Even so, there are way too many promotions: I would recommend doing some reading (or lobbying to the site to simplify things for us).

USA Sportsbook Poker review: Fishiness of play

It might be just my luck, but I found a lot of very unpredictable players at no limit $0.10-0.20. I sat with a full stack, had one awful beat but then doubled up on both my tables and ended the session with a nice profit.

I also won my first 10-seat sit and go tourney.

What I found most pleasing were the players who fell in love with TPTK. AK all in preflop (a usual fault with people who can't imagine you're holding AA or KK) and similar crazy moves. Sportsbook Poker = Fishville!

Sportsbook Poker is clean, well-designed and packed with features.

It may be telling that Sportsbook Poker does not display the number of players online.

There's a lot to admire here. They accept US players; they have sensible limits and games; they have a good selection of banking options; the software, graphics and sound are excellent. Sportsbook Poker must be one to watch.

Cake Poker review: Father Ashley’s Rating!

Visual presentation: 90% -- Clean design. Juvenile obsession with breasts
Audio: 75% -- Rarely an important point. Nice round of applause when you scoop
Software features: 88% -- Decent options but not overwhelming
Ease of use: 86% -- Good idea to make player confirm a raise at PL and NL
Fishiness: 87% (no limit) –- You'll see more pros turn up later. Dive in now!

OVERALL SCORE: 89%

Sportsbook Poker is a worthwhile place to play if you don't care for Full Tilt or the other larger sites. You could make a name for yourself here as the site grows, if your ego is important to you.
