WPT Global’s Funky Features for Cash Games Players
In the very competitive world of real money online poker it’s the players who benefit, being spoilt for choice when offered countless menus of Texas Hold'em and Omaha cash tables, Sit & Go games and online poker tournaments round the clock. Indeed, it’s easy to almost blindly join an online poker room and find yourself in a decent place.
Having said that, it’s also worth taking the time to see which operators offer that little bit more than their rivals by providing different features or interesting tweaks on common aspects of the game that make for a more rewarding overall experience.
This article focuses on just a few reasons which, collectively, succeed in setting WPT Global apart from much of the competition. Already with a bit of an edge due to being the online arm of the much-respected World Poker Tour (WPT), this newish kid on the block (launched just over a year ago) also deserves credit for their success thus far.
Healthy Cash Game Network
With so many players flocking to the cash game tables at WPT Global every day, it means you’re guaranteed to find action at your preferred stake, whatever your bankroll. This in itself is a definite plus for the site, but offering up numerous alternative poker variants - including the increasingly trendy Short Deck Hold'em (6+), for example - as well as introducing fast-paced Splash games (with juicy preflop antes) that are sure to be a hit is a nice touch.
Throw in deep stacks, straddles and bankroll-boosting bomb-pots to spice up proceedings, and it’s easy to see why so many players like sticking around at WPT Global.
There’s even a determined effort to help newcomers and recreational players feel more at home, not least by monitoring the distribution of players so that you’ll not find yourself at a table with hardened pros (a measure which, of course, can also work to the advantage of said pros).
Display Chips in Big Blinds
It’s become an accepted convention over the years when talking about poker to refer to stacks in terms of Big Blinds. With this in mind, calculating during a hand can be inconvenient enough - especially with limited time - without having to convert your stack from, say, $29 in a 10c/20c cash game to 145BB while sitting with a straight draw on a dangerous looking flop against multiple opponents. Problem solved! Unless you enjoy unnecessary arithmetic, you can simply take advantage of a nifty feature at WPT Global that lets you see your chips in Big Blinds. Every little helps...
Improved Side Games
However exciting poker is, some people are just never satisfied! If you’re one of them, and you get bored or impatient in between hands, you’re in for some extra action thanks to WPT Global’s side games at cash tables. This includes Hole Card Betting that allows you to place side bets on what you’ll be dealt in the next hand. Could it be Ace-high at 6.5/1, any pair (16/1) or, for the pessimist, no Ace, King or Pair at 1.4/1 (even being dealt trash can be profitable!)
