Info

Hollywood Poker is a member of the PokerRoom.com network. Games offered are holdem, omaha, omaha 8 or better seven card stud and seven card stud 8 or better. This is a medium sized room. Limits range from $.25/$.50 to $50/$100. No limit goes from $.25/$.50 to $5/$10. There is a java version and a download version.

Game Selection

I found the games to be mostly very tight. The 5 max tables were much better games then the full table games, these are much more popular here too, especially above the $3/6 limit. There are many games to choose from in the low to middle limits, higher limit games are not as plentiful. There were several seven card stud games going, high low games in both stud and omaha were almost non existant.

Tournaments

Single table tournaments were running often with a good selection of limits ranging from $5-$500. Multi table tournaments run all day long, several starting per hour. Buyins range from $5-$50.

Rake

The rake schedule was recently changed on this network. It is now by far the worst rake on the internet for low limit players, high limit players pay less then average though.

Support

I tested email support and live chat. Live chat was very helpful with no wait time. Email response was 24 minutes. Email was helpful as well.

Software Quality and Features

I found the software to be below average. To get the average pot size or flop percents I had to click on each table individually. I also found it annoying that there was not an auto post blind function. When I wanted to leave a table I had to get up at just the right time. If I was in a hand to the end before the blind got to me I was stuck for another round. The download version was a bit better but still offered very few features.

Hollywood Poker offers a great rake rebate deal that I feel would offset some of the game quality and software issues, especially for a good short handed player. With the high payouts it is at least worth a try for most players. Support was great and there are enough good games that if you look closely you will find a good one.
