Ultimate Poker Review
"Hello Robert, Here are the results for $5 NL Hold'em MTT
Tournament ID: 62860
You finished in position 4. Thank you for playing with us!
I had a chance to play on Ultimate Poker. After an all nighter at the cash tables on Tuesday night followed by satellite poker at the Rio till noon yesterday, we decided to stay in last night. We did go by the cage at Boulder Station and deposit $25 to play online.
It was as easy to deposit as UP claims. Walk up to the counter, give them your ID and your player name, along with your money and a minute or two later your done.
The software will seem fairly crude. It is limited in several ways: no last hand button; the chat box doesn't break out; the games are limited to HE; the table window doesn't resize, things that will probably improve as the software is refined.
The play is smooth. The RCG is on par with other sites so if you are thinking there won't be bad beats, you won't find your utopia here. There are both turbos and regular MTT's. They have 5 and 10 minute levels respectively.
I'd give UP about a 6 out of 10 but would increase that as the software is refined.
If anyone has any questions please ask. I am leaving shortly for the Rio but will be glad to answer them later when I return. I will also post updates after I play more.
