Besides the three poker rooms listed above, everyone else is really at about the same level. It goes Lock, Lock, Ignition, then everybody else. Of course, you want to avoid new poker rooms or rooms that don't have a good reputation, because there are a few rogue rooms out there that aren't the best for players.

Downloading Poker Software

Poker players who are playing online for the first time might be a little confused about downloading and installing a poker program on their computer. For those players, we have written download instructions for every major poker site. The pages below explain how to download, install, and play at the best poker rooms on the Internet. Here are all of our poker download instructions:

As you may notice, most of the poker sites listed above only offer downloadable poker software for PCs. This is because the majority of online poker players use Windows computers. However, a few poker sites have began to offer Mac poker software, including Ignition Poker and PokerStars. We assume more sites will follow suit soon.

Customizable Poker Tables

At the moment PokerStars is the only poker site that allows players to make their own table backgrounds. To do this, you create an image you'd like to be used for the background, then upload it to PokerStars and it'll show up as your background. Players have used a ton of images to make really cool backgrounds, and if you Google "PokerStars Custom Backgrounds" you should be able to get some great ideas for your own background.
