Black Chip Poker review
Black Chip Poker is one of the newest online poker rooms. Initially a Merge Network member, Black Chip Poker has recently moved to the Winning Poker Network. The new network – like the old one – stands out for the fact that it accepts US traffic.
The site is allegedly run by a bunch of old poker players who know exactly how to approach the public and how to sell their online poker room. Black Chip Poker features some very interesting promotions, a nice sign-up bonus, an outstanding VIP rewards program, a bunch of new depositor freerolls and let’s not forget about the Black Chip Poker rakeback either.
As far as the Black Chip poker software is concerned: It’s a pretty standard package. The graphics aren't particularly outstanding and neither is anything else about the Winning Poker software. All the necessary features are right where they should be though.
The quality of the opposition at Black Chip Poker is said to be great. Players were able to make the transition to the Winning Poker network relatively smoothly, meaning that they didn't really have to do anything but confirm a few of their details. That also means that the quality of the Black Chip Poker competition has remained quite the same after the move. The software update and the transfer of player balances have been done automatically.
Most players at Black Chip Poker seem to be ABC players, which means that they’re easy to read and relatively tight (or indeed very loose). There are a handful of TAG fish as well, so overall, the rating on the opposition is excellent. You will of course hear complaints that the software is rigged, but there will be plenty of players to admit that if it’s rigged, it’s rigged in their favor.
On a serious note: Nothing is rigged of course. “The software is rigged” complaints are usually very indicative of a fish-heavy player pool.
