Overview -

Absolute Poker is known for their large deposit bonuses, which are fairly easy to cash out. Overall, Absolute has a good package, with a good range of tournaments and solid software. The site has quite tight players and there is decent enough traffic to usually find a mid-limit ring game. This site is not spectacular, but is solid is virtually all aspects, making it a reliable alternative to other sites.

Money - 9/10

Absolute Poker have an amazing bonus of 100% up to $750 with the bonus code BTFBONUS. This is one of the better bonuses around in terms of money, but if you are a low-stakes player it will take you a long time to earn it. The bonus is released in $10 increments every time you play 100 raked hands. This should not be a problem for high or mid-level players, but for small stakes it can take time. Other promotions include a $3,000 new player freeroll and a Royal Flush jackpot. The freerolls are good and have high participation although there are a little slow, and their home page has lots of good information about their site and bonuses on offer. The payouts at Absolute Poker have improved considerably since they started, and usually make payments with a day. They accept more deposit methods, with a minimum deposit of $20.

Interface and Customer Service - 8/10

The software at Absolute Poker is very user-friendly, and is similar to that of Paradise Poker. You can upload your own avatar and they have some other quirky features like a virtual snack bar where you can ‘buy’ food and drink for your player. The hand history is pretty good, and the game speed is also first rate. Customer service is only via email, but they usually respond within 10-20 minutes. This is good, although it is always better if a site has telephone or chat support as well.

Player Difficulty and Frequency - 6/10

The play at Absolute Poker is definitely tighter than a lot of sites, which is unusual for a newer site like this. The players are beatable though, as they are shy rather than simply tight. The play is very predictable because of this, and you know if they reraise on a hand to get out of the hand. Predictable play allows you to take advantage and regularly place highly in tournaments and games. The traffic is definitely focussed on the shorthanded ring games, although there are more full tables now than there used to be. Overall, the traffic is pretty good, with a few thousand players taking part during peak hours. The tournament traffic is fairly good although satellite traffic is quite low. This means you have a better chance of winning, but the prizes will be lower.

Tournaments - 6/10

The tournaments are pretty decent at Absolute, with quite a lot of low buy-in events. However, the best events tend to be the big tournament satellites because of the low number of players, meaning you are much more likely to gain entry to the big event. The traffic for freerolls is very large, and should probably be left alone, as the chances of winning are slim. The freerolls also take a long time, and you could be playing for 5 or 6 hours just to win $50 against 2000 other people. The middle stakes events have some traffic, but the lower-limits are definitely more popular. Stick to the satellite events here for the best chance of getting into big money events.
