Full Review

Betfair recently made the decision to leave Cryptologic network to create an independent poker room. They bought Poker Champs, known for being endorsed by Gus Hansen and Erik Sagstrom, in late 2006 and is now in the start-up phase of running an own poker client.

Betfair is constantly growing and there are more active players now than Poker Champs ever had. This is an agreeable piece of news, because this software is too good to left unused. The software is created for the serious player, and Betfair is the best client on the net for those who play at many tables simultaneously. When you log on you choose weather you want to play at a single table, enlarged single table, two tables, four tables or six tables. Betfair's software also support note taking and has info about flop percentages, average pot size, and hands dealt per hour.

There are many loose games at the lower limits where a good player can build a decent bankroll quite fast. This combined with the sizable sign-up bonus make Betfair a perfect place to start an online-poker career. Betfair also offers quite a few games at mid and high limits as well, the competition is of course tougher there, but it is possible to find beatable games from time to time.
