I was all fired up to see that ESPN had launched a poker room with several weeks of qualifying tournaments to fill the tables for a Grand Finale. A $10,000 WSOP Main Event buyin, airfare, hotel, and expense money awaits one lucky soul who can emerge the champion. My enthusiasm was quickly dampened by the hideous website.
This is one of the worst online poker rooms I've ever encountered. The server is badly overmatched. Log-in's during peak times are impossible. I have registered a half-dozen times for the nightly Big Play multi-table tournament, only to get booted from the site before play began and finding that I can't get back in. Even if I'm lucky enough to qualify to play on Sunday, I have little hope that I could even get into the site to take my seat.
Great idea. Horrible execution. For the most part, a huge waste of time.
