the biggest one right now is for sure... The choice of games is also the most diverse, for example, if there is an all-in of fold, or a cash all-in... short poker... some kind of mystery battle royal... but this is also the very casino room... moreover, they do not hide it, in a hostile war with funds, they openly stated that they do not need professional players who will withdraw money, it is important for them that deposits are made and the money remains inside the room ...((

For sure GG Poker appeal a lot to gamblers, and this is part of the reason, why they have become so big. But they also have a wide selection of MTTs and 3 times more activity in cash games than the closest competitor. So if you want to play poker in a serious way, GG Poker also has plenty to offer.

All poker rooms have this goal. Only the means to reach it is different from room to room. Also what you call "a hostile war with funds" is basically a threat to crack down of various forms of cheating. So while I might disagree with some parts of GG Pokers policy, this is actually a good move on their behalf, if you ask me :)

In fairness such BB/100 numbers depends on, how the games play, so they are a bit difficult to compare across sites. Maybe the 50NL full ring games on PokerStars are a nit-fest, and this is why, people pay less rake on average. But even so its probably true, that GG Poker is on the expensive side for cash games due to the fact, they also rake pots, that ended preflop.

True those numbers should be taken with a pinch of salt, but the rake cap is higher ($4 v $2) on GG and they rake preflop so it will be higher overall. For a regular small single raised pot it is the same on both sites at 5%.

According to that table unibet has an amazingly low rake for 2NL-10NL. But apart from that its pretty similar across sites, so other factors like softness of games, software and payouts are more important. And personally I would not want to play 25NL or higher on any site without a high rakeback. 7-8 BB/100 is pretty brutal, when the opponents are not complete donkeys.

Just seen an advert for GG Poker that says it is the biggest room in the world, which I find difficult to believe.

I don't want to sign up so can anyone tell me what games they have - razz, stud hi-lo?
I don't play on GGPoker all the time, but I have to admit that it is the biggest poker room at the moment. I really like the visuals at the poker tables, the game effects are top quality and the loyalty program is very nice. Sometimes there are some very juicy promotions going on. All in all, GGPoker has everything at the highest level! :cool:

GG is the biggest, and the random number generator is correct, the only problem is that you can't play on multiple tables on mobile.
But a good gaming experience helps you forget that.

Rumm may be big, even sympathizes with me, but I don't play much there because there's a lot of action. There are almost no free tournaments, so it's not very interesting.

I’m pretty sure GG is the biggest site these days although I know many players still says is pokerstars. I like both sites.
