Overview of Carbon Poker

Carbon Poker LogoCarbon Poker is one of the newer online poker rooms and is therefore still trying to establish a good player base. Carbon is part of the Merge Poker Network and currently sees about 3000 players during peak times. This may not seem like very many but it is great when it comes to the guaranteed tournaments as quite often there are not enough buy ins to cover a guaranteed prize pool, which results in a tournament overlay.

The Carbon Poker software that you just downloaded is very user friendly and has plenty of useful information in the lobby. Tabs at the top of the lobby are set so that you can see all the cash games available as well as the tournaments, news and other games. The Merge Network is the only online poker room that offers the card game Euchre which is very popular with folks from the Northern parts of the United States. Other information you can see that you may find useful when searching for cash games is the average pot size, players per flop, and hands played per hour.

Anytime you are seated at a cash table, there is a small icon on the right side of the screen that you can click to access the Blackjack tables at Carbon Poker. Don’t worry about seeing a bunch of cartoon avatars here, it just won’t happen. When you are seated at the poker tables, each player will just have a bar with their name, a small picture, symbols for any special tournaments they have won and stars for their level of VIP play. All in all, Carbon Poker is a great room to play in. If you would like to learn more read our Carbon Poker review.
