Has IDN Poker changed?
If you are not very familiar with the whole history of IDN Poker, then we recommend that you first read the article on our website that was published last year.
What has changed here since then? Representatives of idn poker themselves contacted us and offered to resume cooperation and restore transactions in its rooms (so far this has been done only at Shenpoker). Regarding the unpleasant past of the network, but, simply, the facts of the presence of teamplay and large "glitches" in the client, we were assured that a lot of work has been done in this direction. The "holes" in the software were closed, the security service did a great job.
Of course, such statements demanded verification, and our scouts played at Shenpoker, and players who already played at IDN were interviewed. What conclusions did they provide us with?
IDN Poker uses the same browser software, but it works stably and if you don't try to open more than one table from one account, nothing interferes with the game;
There are a lot of short stacks at the tables, the game is very loose, the players swing the variance very much;
There have been cases of team play, but they are very easy to spot. Landing at another table (and there are a lot of them in the client) solves the problems of playing with a company of Malaysians who sat down at the same table from their gadgets. The game of one person from several accounts at the same table, according to a network representative, is strictly suppressed.
The game is very similar to PokerMaster, except that there are no regulars from the word "absolutely". The field is as weak as possible, but you need to be able to select tables.
Our players, in addition to Rakeback deals, will be able to multi-table outside the browser.
That is, although the IDN Poker network remains a place of risky play, due to a large number of specific features and orientation, first of all, towards Asians, now we can no longer completely discourage you from playing in it.
Right now, IDN Poker is by far the weakest field of all possible rooms and networks. In it you can get our good Rakeback and, of course, the amount of play here is just huge.
Traffic at IDN Poker
The IDN Poker rooms offer more than just poker to their clients. The latter includes Hold'em and Omaha cash tables. NLH is played at tables in 6-handed format (most of it), 9-handed (about 30% of the traffic), and 4-handed (mostly at the more expensive limits).
The number of tables at the most popular limits at IDN Poker is as follows:
100/200 (NL1) -500 / 1K (NL5) - more than 100;
1K / 2K (NL10) - about 30;
2.5K / 5K (NL25) - about 20;
5K / 10K (NL50) - about 10;
10K / 20K-20K / 40K (NL100-200) - about 10;
100K / 200K (NL1K) and above - about 5.
The most expensive Shen Poker game we saw was at 300K / 600K (NL3K). It is clear that playing one table, the limits of NL50 and higher are of interest (Large and VIP tabs in the client). There are also Omaha tables at IDN Poker. But they play it at limits from PLO50 and above, at only 5-6 tables.
In the current situation in the Chinese poker room market, when some of the largest of them have restricted access to non-Asian players, the emergence of a new opportunity to sit at tables with local amateurs at limits up to NL3K can be viewed as positive.
Of course, the IDN Poker network, in light of the recent changes, is not a fully proven and risk-free place to play like Poker master. But if you are willing to try playing here for the sake of a play money field, we will provide you with an exclusive Rakeback deal, transaction assistance, and possibly a HUD in the near future. We cannot give any guarantees, and you will have to ride here at your own peril and risk. It is better to learn from the experience of local players and keep only a few BIs of your limit on your account.
