Carbon Poker Review Poker reviews | online poker | internet poker | objective
Carbon Poker operates under a gaming licence from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, Canada. Carbon Poker's software is stylish and somehow the whole card room has a boutique and friendly feel to it compared to many "big brand" generic poker sites. Carbon Poker offers lots of payment methods including some especially to help out US based players. Play features like 'All in show downs' & "Deal it Twice" add some fun as you follow play - just like on TV!
We like Carbon's poker software - Play poker at multiple tables simultaneously. You can even throw in a game of blackjack or roulette while playing your poker tournament.

CARBON POKER LOOK & FEEL / PLAYABILITY
Easy, relaxed and fast playing, Carbon Poker has a good feel. It's relatively quick to download & install - all very intuitive - you can be playing in just a couple of minutes. Table Features we like include: Rabbit Hunt (what card would have come next) and Expose One Card also add depth to the game and help you learn. Time Bank You accumulate time from previous hands that you made quick decisions, banking it for future use. All in Percentages at a showdown - just like on TV - with the relative win % of those remaining in a hand are great. Deal it Twice gives 2 all-in players the option to deal the turn and river community cards two times.
Player accolades - append a customisable award to your player identity showing off you've won a big event. Crazy, but bragging rights at the table influence opponents
There are some genuinely unique play & lobby features. Play is GMT -5 or ET.

What we LIKE about Carbon Poker
1. A great poker room for beginners, nice pace, good action - and in general more friendly
players and support crew. Cool side games too.
2. FREEROLLS, 2-3 hourly 24x7 with prizes ranging from $50 to $10K
3. Look and feel. Original, well paced gameplay with nonflashy graphics.
4. The game choice - wow! The pros recommend variety to keep you learning and Carbon
Poker is the site to get it. Razz, Badugi...even Euchre and Backgammon!
5. New payment methods online all the time - FoneLinx (esp for US players), PIN debit &
Moneybookers (Skrill) are recent additions
What we DO NOT LIKE about Carbon Poker
1. Traffic off peak is sometimes slow, especially is you want to play for higher stakes. This is
improving considerably though as US players are still accepted at this poker room, and it's
a great site to learn poker, so player numbers are growing fast.
2. No Aussies or Singaporeans can play at CarbonPoker.com
