Real Deal Poker

Real Deal Poker Review 2010

NOTE: Real Deal Poker is currently closed but will be reopening in a few weeks.

Real Deal Poker is a new online poker site which launched in May 2010 and is the only poker site which deals real cards; you can read more about their innovating software below. Unfortunately Real Deal Poker do not accept US poker players but all other players who sign up using Real Deal Poker bonus code PTHBONUS can enjoy a 100% up to €400 bonus. The traffic is the biggest drawback due to it being a new site and not having gained much exposure yet, however they recently brought former 5-time world heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield on board to represent them and players actually have the opportunity to play against him and even meet him thanks to special promotions. The player quality is very soft so no matter whether you are a beginner or an experienced player, you will find it easy to win at Real Deal Poker.

Real Deal Poker Software

As already mentioned, Real Deal Poker is an online poker innovation – it is the first and only online poker site which uses real cards. Real Deal Poker is an independant poker site which uses software provided by Everleaf however instead of using a random card generator (RNG) like every other online poker site, Real Deal Poker have patented software which deals a completely new deck of cards every single hand (you can view how this is done on their website, just visit www.realdealpoker.com. Suprisingly this doesn’t slow down the action and every hand is dealt very quickly, with players even having the option of ‘cutting the deck’ just like in real life and it is the only site to use ‘burn’ cards making this the closest site to real-life poker you can get! As well as this you can play instantly from the site instead of downloading the software.

Real Deal Poker Game Variety

Real Deal Poker currently offer four different variations which you can find listed below, however the majority of the action is at the Texas Hold’em tables. This is due to the low-traffic because it is such a new poker room and most players only knowing how to play it, but as traffic increases you can expect lots more tables being played in all the available variations. The stakes available at Real Deal Poker vary from €0.01/€0.02 to high-stakes tables of €100/€200 however almost all the action is at the low stakes tables with €3/€6 being the largest stakes I have seen action at and the competition is extremely soft so you should find it relatively easy to win. Here is more information on the games available:

Texas Hold’em – The No-Limit Texas Hold’em tables is where all the action is with the majority of games being played in the €0.01/€0.02 to €0.25/€0.50 range however there has been games running as high as €3/€6. There doesn’t seem to be much action at the Limit Hold’em tables but it is offered with stakes ranging from €0.02/€0.04 to €100/€200.

Omaha – There is usually a few PLO tables running at Real Deal Poker and the stakes range from €0.01/€0.02 to €25/€50 however the majority of games take place up to the €0.25/€0.50 stakes at the moment. There is also Fixed-Limit Omaha however there is very rarely anyone playing, the stakes for it range from €0.02/€0.04 to €15/€30.

Omaha Hi/Lo -Again there isn’t much Omaha Hi/Lo action but it is offered in both Pot-Limit and Fixed-Limit format. The stakes for Pot-Limit range from €0.01/€0.02 to €5/€10 and for Fixed-Limit they range from €0.02/€0.04 to €15/€30.

7 Card Stud – There is very rarely any action at the 7 Card Stud tables but it is available in stakes from €0.10/€0.20 to €10/€20.

Real Deal Poker Tournaments

Tournament action is pretty slow at Real Deal Poker due to it being a new site with low traffic however things have started to improve thanks to the launch of bigger guaranteed tournaments which always have great overlays. We expect bigger and better tournaments on offer soon as traffic increases but the ease of competition equalled with a small number of entrants make Real Deal Poker one of the easiest places to build your bankroll.

Freerolls – There are lots of daily freeroll tournaments at Real Deal Poker which attract new players aspiring to learn the game and build a bankroll. Daily freerolls include €25 and €100 freerolls as well as free satellites to their largest guaranteed tournaments.

Guaranteed Tournaments – Currently the largest tournaments on Real Deal Poker are their €500 and €1,000 guaranteed tournaments. With the site being so new there isn’t too many entries so there is usually always an overlay making them great value tournaments for your money and as already mentioned, you can qualify to them for free thanks to the various freerolls available.

Sit and Go’s – Real Deal Poker offer 10-seater, 6-max and Heads-up sit and go tournaments however there isn’t much action at them yet and you will have to wait some time for other players to register for it to begin. 10-seater sit and go stakes range from €1+€0.10 to €20+€2, 6-max stakes range from €1+€0.10 to €50+€5, and Heads-up stakes range from €1+€0.05 to €100+€4.50. There is also ‘Double your money’ sit and go’s where you only have to finish in the top half and you double up (for example enter a 10-player Double your money SNG and finish in the top 5 and you win €2).
