Party Poker used to be the most popular online poker site before the 2006 UIGEA turned the status-quo upside down, allowing sites like Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker to take over. The factor that led to the ebbing of the Party Poker fish-pool and the plummeting of their shares was a decision by the company executives to leave the US market immediately after the UIGEA was passed. One of the site’s founders even decided to settle with the US DoJ, paying several hundreds of millions in damages. Back at the time, all of these decisions seemed to be extremely bad ones, directly endangering the future of the brand. These days however, Party Poker seem to be eyeing a return to the US once legislation legalizing and regulating online poker is passed. They have already teamed up with Boyd Gaming and MGM, a partnership that will give the site a US foothold in case online poker does indeed get legalized. Till then, Party Poker’s tables will continue to be populated with Europeans, which means that some of the games will indeed be ridiculously soft, especially tournaments. Lately, Party Poker have been busy assembling an online team of professional poker players who would lend more credibility and diversity to the operation. Tony G and Kara Scott are two of their in-house pros. Mike Sexton and Ian Frazer also play there, together with Bodo Sbrzesny and Remy Biechel. The traffic at the site is quite outstanding especially considering that no US players are currently allowed to join. European peak hours tend to be the peak hours for the poker room, but there’s plenty of action going on at just about every limit all the time. The game selection isn’t particularly impressive: Holdem, Omaha and 7-Card Stud are offered, featuring every imaginable betting format. There aren’t any exotic poker variants however. The software has undergone a major overhaul a while ago, and since then, players have been able to enjoy sharper graphics, customized player images, live action preview as well as enhanced multi tabling. The bottom line: Party Poker represents an excellent choice for non-US players currently, and it may soon become a destination for US players too. There is no actual Party Poker rakeback, but the VIP points scheme run by the site is a close-enough equivalent.
