Hi, Everybody!,  Hi Dr. Nick (sorry talking to myself)

I"ve played online poker for 12 to 13 years now, I was around when the games were incredibly good back in 2007.  Been around through all the scandals and crap that has damaged online poker severely.  Now I believe that Unibet Poker is the online poker room of the present and future. 

Like a lot of poker players I have 20 different poker clients on my computer.  I play where the promotions are, where the value is and where I enjoy.

For one thing my favorite place to play based on software, avatars, etc.  is Unibet Poker I mean I like the graphics and the atmosphere of the tables.  It does matter, because on PartyPoker I hate how it feels and don't really want to play there because of it.  I know the software has had issues on Unibet, but they keep fixing and improving it and I don't really feel any of those issues anymore.

Cash Games are great on Unibet, they have amazing satellite systems to the UK Tour and Unibet Open.  I am a satellite specialist when it comes to NL Hold'em and I really like the systems that they have in place.

Some people are noting that the games are getting tougher than they were say 6 months ago.  That is because Unibet is doing a great job at keeping recreational players playing and eventually you will get better at poker.  You can only shove J4 so many times all in and lose before your like maybe I should fold that hand. :smileyvery-happy:  Also more players are getting sick of the same old crap and cutting of promotions at other online poker rooms, so they are looking for better alternatives like Unibet.

However the games are still great during more casual player times.  The weekend and holidays are the time to hit the tables.  Right now the grinders are focusing on cash games to move up the leaderboards.  When a promotion like that comes up, you should play the opposite such as Tournaments if your looking for softer games.  Adapting is a huge key to being succesful at online poker and boosting your bankroll.

The best part of Unibet Poker right now I think is this the non toxic games!

I am so sick and tired of people getting bashed at the poker tables whenever they make a mistake or get lucky or anything.  On 888 for example every table it seems someone is needling someone, you can throw things at your opponents like eggs.  You can type fish and a fish emoji appears.  It's so bad for the game and even at times on Unibet I feel I want to type something, but I am glad that I can't.  

Unibet Poker's ability to change aliases and no chat whatsoever is brilliant.  Some want like positive things you can say, that doesn't work either.  You can use those to be sarcastic and still needle people.  It just doesn't work getting rid of it all is the best thing for online poker in the last decade.  I remember 5 days ago I ran a $1 into a seat to Sweden running through the step system on 888 which is a great system.  However in the finals, it was winner take all so I had an aggressive mind set.  I was playing aggressively trying to level people and lost half my stack.  Was down to less then half a stack shoved KJ suited hit a jack vs Ak and got back to even.  After the hand not one but two people berated me non stop.

Let me be clear I am a very good player whose played over 10,000 tournaments with a big return on investment.  I've profited every year that I've ever played poker, I'm a satellite expert etc, I'm not here to tell who I am.  I play casually now a days, if you had my poker mind you would be like what are you doing play 10 hrs/day 8 tabling 1000nl.  But depression/anxiety and other issues keep me playing casually at the moment. But when you poke me and attack me personally, that's going to get me to focus.

 I went from no big deal tournament to out to get this win.  One of the the two berators went out quickly and the other one was getting quite lucky and knocked out a few players to get heads up against me, he had a 3.5-1 chip lead, but I'm still a strong favorite in that spot in my opinion.  Anyways I had laser focus and used all my tricks in my arsenal to book the win.  The point of the story is attack a good player and they'll play their best game against you, attack a bad player and they'll just quit the game.  None of the two scenarios are good for poker in general.  

The atmosphere of Unibet Poker and the non toxic games is one thing, the people here running all these promotions and putting in so much time and effort is another.

This community is incredible and I'm loving to watch it grow and expand.  There is so many promotions running every week that it's great and valuable to come back every day.  I enjoy reading the topics and using some of my poker knowledge to potentially help things out or give my opinion.  

You have all these promotions, the community league, the freerolls and all these amazing people that are keeping track of leaderboards and sending everyone prizes, responding to posts etc.  It's incredible the work you guys do on the community, including on twitch with the great streams.  How much you guys keep giving away is unheard of.  No other poker site was ever giving away 12 to 15 euros in tickets each week with the mysterious tournaments and that is just one of the many ways you guys keep giving back.  It's just great generosity by the Unibet Poker staff.

Unibet is the only site that I always want to have money on and look forward to each and every day.  From the improvements you have made, to the ones you have planned, it's fantastic and I hope to do my part and contribute what I can for many years to come.

I type a lot I am sorry, it's just something I do :smileyhappy:

I absolutely agree. Unibet is my favorite site to play on because of the overall design, incredible promotions, & phenomenal staff. They go out of their way to ensure customers are satisfied. Even though bank transfers usually take a little longer since I'm in Canada (Massive virtual hug to first Canadian member I meet), the pros Unibet offer far outweigh this one small inconvenience.

Adding a community was brilliant. I love to engage with others & this to me puts Unibet over their competitors. Everyone has been incredibly friendly & I've had a blast discussing various topics. :smileyhappy:

I debate
Should I smile like everything's good and pretend that life is great
Or should I let the world see the real me and not hide this pain
I tried to be like the rest of y'all, sorry I just can't
I'ma probably die this way

Ya I agree with you as a Canadian cashouts are longer than other sites.  It's a week for a bank transfer to come through, just gotta make adjustments.  Sleep for a week would be ideal, just tricky.  Best way for cashouts are forget about it then be surprised a week later boom cash baby.

Absolutely! 

I'm the other end of the scale, began learning a couple of years ago. 
Played every site that offered freerolls etc, there's nowhere quite as nice to play as Unibet.
Personally I find the graphics a bit florid, but I just use a plain table, I like having the choices.
And most of all I love the non-toxic atmosphere Heart

The Twitch streams are great fun, as well as informative, nobody treats you like an idiot for not knowing something.
And then adding the community, just the icing on the cake! :womanvery-happy:

Just call me Mrs Kings :-)

Well written post Smile It's always good to see that long time players who have been to multiple sites find Unibet to be the one to dedicate their play to. All the postive reviews can only lead to increaded player pools which is great for the game.

 

The cynic in me thinks this is just an attempt to get post of the week though Sad Why would you feel the need to write a 500 word post explaining how good Unibet is on a forum filled with players that already know how good it is? (It's a rhetorical question, you don't need to justify your reasons for posting at all, just saying how I see it.)   

Have you read my blog HERE... It's long isn't it Smile

and what actually it would be the problem if he was build that post for the post of the week?i really dont see the relevance! 

many posts things only to make posts but i never said why they are doing this but it is more logic why they are trying to accumulate useless posts. let the man to give a try for a bonus or whatever . is not about us who decide who will get the prize .

I type a lot, Ive written around 5000 x 300 word + articles for various sites I run,  I type like 100 wpmand was just wondering around thinking about the various sites and playing on one of the sites that was super toxic and just felt like typing an article.  Felt better to just get it out of my head instead of letting it rattle around there for any longer. :smileyhappy:

i really dont know how i ve made the transition to unibet from 888 , but i do remember that at first i never liked the idea of not using HUD at the tables and playing 6 tables at first was terrible . i do remember also i have found so many coluders at those games when i start playing and that was really sick at the moment and i cash out all my money and moved back where i was playing before.after a while reading the 2+2 posts and so many positive comments i was saying to give unibet another try and since then i never played one single hand on any other poker room . unibet is the only poker software installed in my computer and i really like the idea of this concept.
