Doyles Room Poker Review

DoylesRoom started offering poker in 2004, and was very successful in attracting players with the endorsement of one of the most famous players in the world. The bulk of those players were American, of course, so the passing of the UIGEA late last year struck the site very hard and a huge portion of its player base was lost.

Since the shift to the Microgaming network, however, (moving from the Tribeca network in 2006), the site once again boasts high traffic, a wide game variety and an extensive range of table limits. And now, as of October 18, 2007, the site is again accepting U.S. players, so traffic can only be expected to rise.

The software provides very useful stats as well as three different table sizes: large, normal and mini view. It's stable and reliable, and the graphics are nice and kind of "old school," with a wood grain feel. The functions are also well placed and easy to use.

DoylesRoom offers plenty of promotions, including sign-up bonuses, an attractive VIP points program and a nice bad beat jackpot that pays out when four-of-a-kind eights-or-better is beaten in a cash game. There is also the famous weekly bounty tournament in which Doyle himself plays, accompanied by his friends Mike Caro and Hoyt Corkins and his son Todd.

The games offered at DoylesRoom are Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Five-Card Draw and Five-Card Stud. The games vary between No-Limit, Pot-Limit, and Fixed-Limit. Full-table games, short-handed, and heads-up tables are all available. Real money player statistics as of February 2008 show 2,000 ring-game players at peak hours, and 10,000 tournament players at peak hours.

Overall, DoylesRoom offers great action, good game diversity and software that plays very well. The software is updated frequently to ensure safety and stability, with very little downtime as a result.
