Play Razz Online For Real Money
This article will look at the best places to play Razz online. There are currently a number of Razz poker sites spreading Razz games online and we intended to look at all of them so you can decide where you want to play Razz online. Razz is without a doubt the most popular of all the lowball poker games and our Razz poker pages are some of the most popular on playlowballpoker.com. First lets take a look at some of the best places to play Razz poker on the net.
Best Places To Play Razz Online
Everyone knows that NL Texas Holdem is without a doubt the most popular poker variant both on and offline, Omaha comes second and then comes Seven Card Stud. Razz is pretty firmly placed in fourth position when it comes to popularity and as a result to get a regular game online you need to be playing at an online poker room with high traffic volume.
PokerStars.com is the largest online poker room in the world and you’ll be pleased to hear is one of the best places you can play Razz poker online. They have enough traffic to support a wide variety of different poker variations and at peak times you can expect to see over 20 Razz cash tables running at different limits, sit and go tournaments and even the odd multi table tournament. Pokerstars have the biggest money Razz MTT of the week every Sunday which has a $215 buy in and $10,000 guaranteed in the prize pool.
Full Tilt Poker
FullTiltPoker.com is another great place to play Razz poker online. They have a massive player base and therefore are one of the only places that can support regular Razz action. Full Tilt is also the only place you can play heads up Razz cash games online, Pokerstars only offer heads up Razz SNG’s. They have a $2,000 guaranteed MTT every day which has a $26 buy in and every Tuesday run a $5,000 guaranteed $75 buy in Razz poker tournament. Full Tilt do have slightly less traffic on their Razz tables than Pokerstars but it’s still good enough to guarantee you a game whenever you want to play.
Other Places To Play Razz Poker Online
Aside from Pokerstars and Full Tilt there are two other places you can play Razz poker on the net. The first is the Merge poker network who have rooms like Carbon Poker, Iron Duke, Aced.com and Reefer Poker. The problem with Merge is it is still a small poker network in terms of traffic and I don’t think I have ever logged onto my Aced.com account and actually managed to find a game of Razz poker running. I’m sure games do run sometimes but far to infrequently for my liking!
Razz players also have the option of playing at either Absolute Poker or Ultimate Bet. Although these rooms have decent traffic in 2008 they were caught up in one of the biggest online poker scandals ever! The cliffnotes of which are below.
– Members of 2+2, the biggest poker forum in the world, uncover super users on Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet.
– Player realize that these super users have exploited a security fault in the software and can see other players hole cards.
– Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet employees steal hundreds of thousands from online poker players.
– Jan 11th 2008 Kahnawake Gaming Commission finds Absolute and Ultimate Bet guilty of all charges against them, fines them and demands they repay all player losses which exceed $800,000!
We don’t suggest you play at Absolute or Ultimate Bet. Sticking to Pokerstars or Full Tilt is a much better and safer choice. Merge whilst safe for players just doesn’t have enough traffic to support regular Razz action.
