Cooks Poker is another operator of the Prima Poker Network and has been
since March 2003. The benefit of playing on the network is the continual
strong flow of players, a result of many poker sites all feeding through
to one big room. Because of the size of Prima, they also spread a good
variety of games from very low limit (easy pickings!) to high stakes pot
limit and no limit (great if you’ve got the bankroll or good to
Graphics / Software
Call me old fashioned, but there is much that you can do to convince me that I'm anywhere but sat in front of my computer looking at cards on screen. (I’ve tried True poker, but it’s just too slow.) The graphics are clear here and your hole cards are easy to see. When the flop comes, the cards are always visible, and they even have an indicator that shows who has acted and what they did.. I did have a few issues with the software when they first introduced the Multi Table Tournament, as it always seemed to freeze and was really slow, but I think after constant calls from thousands of players, they have ironed out these glitches.
Cashout / Bonus
The reason that I chose this site was due to the fact that there are so quite a few different sites that operate for the prima network, but Captain Cooks Poker is one of the few that has the backing of a large casino group. When putting down my hard earned dollars, I feel that security of information and credit details are a huge part of where I play, and knowing that Captain Cooks Poker comes under the highly professional banner of CasinoRewards and is therefore heavily monitored, I am safe in the knowledge that all is secure, and when it comes to cash out it comes safely and without hassle.
Customer / Support / Security
Customer support is important to me as things in the online world inevitably go wrong. The Poker room shares the same support as the casinos attached to it, so there is always someone on the phone 24/7, and even though for big technical issues, the support has to contact the Prima network (why the player can’t contact Prima Poker direct, I don’t know) you usually have any questions resolved within a 24hour time frame. Most quick questions I had about my account or cashout, were answered right there on the spot.
This site has 5 Card Stud !! Not many online poker rooms cover this game anymore, but as an old school player, it’s great to find a site that not only has it, but also has a whole bunch of players ready and willing to play. Captain Cooks Poker has all the big games such as Holdem, Omaha and as mentioned above 5 Card and 7 Card Stud. It also has a whole spread of games with heads up action, so if you can find a willing partner, you can sit at a private table and go back and forth.
I’m a middle limit player so Captain Cooks Poker is right up my alley, but they do have all limits, from very low 25c/50c all the way up to pot limit 50/100. A lot of people I come across say that they like the micro limit (2c/4c) games offered at other poker sites, but I find that no one is willing to lay down a hand at that level, so I'd rather stick to playing for fun than playing for such small limits.
