Full Review

Ultimate Bet is one of the largest poker rooms in the industry. At peak hours there are about 3,500 players in the cash-game section and 15,000 playing tournaments. For an independent poker room that is impressive numbers. Ultimate Bet game selection is better than industry average. They offer Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha high/low, Seven card stud, Seven card stud high/low as well as uncommon games such as Pineapple, Pineapple high/low, Triple draw ace-5, and Triple draw 2-7. The limits range from micro to high stakes, NL Hold'em can for example be played up to $50/$100 and Limit Hold'em up to $300/$600. Another unusual feature is the kill and half kill games. If back to back pots of 5 big bets or more are won by the same player then the limits increase and the winning player must post a kill blind which in a full kill game is double the normal big blind, in half kill it is 50% more then the big blind.

Unfortunately the competition at Ultimate Bet is tougher than the average poker room. At the lowest limits the games are quite easy to beat but after getting to the $1/$2 level one must look harder for good games. At this limit, and higher, the 6 max tables become much better games. Many maniacs can be found at $1/$2-$5/$10 6 max tables. One can still find good 10 player games they are just fewer and further between.

Ultimate Bet is a great place for a beginner to start out. They offer rake free penny games and games for Ultimate Points which will give a new player a much better learning experience the playing in normal play money games.
