A Breakdown of ShenPoker, and IDN Poker Network Room
Here is a review of ShenPoker, one of the IDN Network Poker Rooms
Something that inexperienced online poker players may not realize is that most sites are connected to a larger network. For instance, the IDNPoker Network is made up of several poker rooms that are available around Asia and around the world if you have an Asian bank account. Here are some of the most popular rooms in the IDN Poker network.
ShenPoker is the largest and probably most important skin of the network. It is very secure, despite having some problems in the past, and there is a large number of players to play against. The level of player might be lower than other sites, but that makes it a great jumping-off point for new players. They also have great bonuses and Rakeback deals.
There are usually at least 10,000 players online at any given time. You can play on multiple tables, but you will need to have more than one account, which can skew the statistics, but it still shows that there are that many games going at a time.
ShenPoker currently is only available on web-browsers, even though IDN is known for its mobile apps. The web client is very easy to use, however. Navigation is simple and clean, you can see every table that’s available right from your dashboard.
There are many different game formats from which to choose. One of the highlights is that there are local games for players who enjoy regional variations as well. The traditional choices are all there as well, from Omaha to 9-Hand and everything else in between. There are many fast play options as well, with some tables marked for 5 seconds. Wagering can get very exciting on these tables, and it allows you to play many games in a short time.
ShenPoker has very lucrative Rakeback deals as well, so there is a bonus for players who play a lot and for new accounts.
IDN Poker offers other rooms as well, such as PokerDee, SlamPoker, and 12BetPoker. These roos are available to players in specific countries, such as Thailand. They are not as big as ShenPoker, and have also had some security concerns, recently. If you choose to play in one of these rooms, you will have access to the IDN Network platform with all of the features and options that come with it. Each room has its own specific Rakeback bonuses, so you can shop around and choose one that’s right for you.
