IDNPoker Review – Playing Online Poker
Poker is a card game played by two or more players. Most games use poker chips, which are valued as low as a single white chip. The red chip is worth five whites, and the blue chip is worth two, four, or five reds. To start a game, each player buys into the pot by purchasing one or more poker chips. The amount they buy in will vary, but usually each player buys in for the same amount.
Using a poker client is an option, but IDNPoker does not provide a stand-alone client for desktop computers. Using an HTML5 client does not require downloading anything. The IDNPoker website is fully translated into English. The lobby is minimalistic with buttons to select cash games and stakes. Players do not have to worry about waiting lists or filters, and they can hide full tables using the settings tab. You can only play one table with IDNPoker per account, so multi-tabling is not recommended.
IDNPoker is one of the most popular poker networks in Asia, and the third largest network globally. It launched in Cambodia in 2010 but was unable to gain any traction, eventually climbing to the second spot on the PokerScout ranking. IDNPoker focuses on the Asian market and does not promote its services internationally. However, all its poker rooms are fully translated into English, which makes them very popular with international players. IDNPoker’s success can be attributed to a huge promotional campaign in Asian countries, which includes participation in gaming conferences and charity events.
