Global Poker, like any online poker site, has done its best to maintain a healthy traffic volume. In its half decade of operation, the site has managed to break into the top 5 most heavily trafficked online poker sites.
This could be due to the fact that a large portion of Pot-Limit Omaha players are participating in games at the site. Usually, Texas Hold’em is the primary draw for a poker platform, but the number of PLO fans almost equals those playing Texas Hold’em ring games.
The site does regularly pass 500 participants in its biggest events. On average, the tournaments attract between 50-300 players, depending upon the day and time they are occurring. For the most part though, most events bring in between 70-120 participants.
So, what sort of games are you able to access at GP?
No Limit Hold’em cash tables exist up to the Sweeps Coins 10/20 level, with six-max and nine-player tables available, although full Sweeps Coins 5/10 cash games are also accessible in the Omaha range.
Limit Hold’em used to be a part of the Global Poker site, although it did not attract the number of ring game players that was hoped. Recently all FLHE tables were subsequently removed from availability.
Crazy Pineapple games were then introduced a little later on in 2018, operating in a similar way to Texas Hold’em. However, there are three hole cards dealt out to each player instead of two. As with Limit Hold’em though, it did not experience such an upsurge of players wanting to try it out and continue playing. Within due course, it was also eliminated from the lobby due to the lack of participation.
Surge poker – a sort of fast-fold variant – was also introduced to the network at the end of 2019. All of these were NLHE options, but it disappeared from the client by May 2020. And despite Global Poker insisting that it would return, that has not come to fruition.
Now, it continues on with providing big-bet games with various buy-ins that often come with no fixed limits. Only on occasion can you find those that utilize the fixed limit rules.
