PokerRoom is one of the only online poker rooms where you can play on Mac, Windows, or Linux. That's probably why they can currently boast over 3 million active registered players, many of whom regularly take part in PokerRoom's extensive forum and online community - wittily dubbed "Pokah" - equipped with news, player profiles, top lists, groups, articles: all frequently viewed updated.

Still don't feel poker-savvy enough to lay down some cold hard cash on the felt? Look no further! PokerRoom even has its own Poker School, containing a comprehensive array of articles, a flash tutorial, information on how to analyze statistics like hand histories and expected value stats to improve your game, a glossary, lessons on table etiquette, links to other online educational resources, and rules to even the most obscure games offered on their site.

And speaking of obscure games, not only can you find action at any point in your week in the Texas Hold 'Em ring game or tournament stakes of your choice, but you can also compete in Stud, Hi/Lo, Blackjack and a wide array of casino games too - like Pai Gow, Let It Ride, Baccarat, Craps, Slots, Roulette…Bottom line? From our PokerRoom Review, you can see that the fun just never ends.
