Intertops, Online Poker for USA PlayersIn our previous article we discussed the value in playing online poker at Bodog Poker. There remains many other online poker rooms that still allow USA poker players. Another solid choice for USA online poker is Intertops Poker.

Intertops has been online since 1996 and always takes care of players in the right way. One of the draws to the big 4 online poker rooms (PokerStars, Full Tilt, Absolute and UB) was their record of taking care of player needs, solid promotions, good bonuses and stability. Theses are the same traits that Intertops Poker is famous for. You don’t last for 15 years in online gaming unless you are doing something right. They have a strong reputation for speedy cashouts, good promotions, excellent customer service as well as a long history online.

Intertops Poker is on the USA friendly Cake Poker network and while you won’t find 500,000 players online, you still have a more than adequate supply of opponents to compete against. And for the most part, you will find the cash tables to be very tight. This makes for some interesting action and a solid player will find a steady income at these tables. Levels played currently cap off around the $30/$60 levels but tables are available as high as $500/$1,000.

One of the many special promotions that Intertops is running this month is a special first depositor freeroll. Just sign up here, make a minimum $20 deposit and earn just 10 FPP’s (frequent player points) and you will earn a seat in the $1,000 New Depositor Freeroll that runs on May 1st at 3:00 EDT. It’s just one of the "nice" things that Intertops does for it’s players. Be sure to use Intertops bonus code PPUS1000 for a 110% bonus up to $1,000 FREE plus you’ll get 2 free Gold Chips to get you started! Click here to get started now!

You will also enjoy a rewards program that award Gold Cards to you as you play at the cash tables. These Gold Cards can then be traded for tournament entries, cash and more. As you earn FPP’s you will also earn Gold Stacks, this rewards program pays out in cash to your account as you climb the levels. Other promotions include WSOP qualifiers, gold chips, turbo gold cards (where you earn gold cards at twice the usual level). Visit our Intertops Poker review for more information.

The Sunday major tournaments include a $15,000 guaranteed and a $25,000 guaranteed tournaments. As usual, there are qualifiers for these events that run throughout the week in multi table and sit n go formats. Perhaps not the highest prizepools out there but the overlay in these tournaments makes them very worthwhile (and profitable) for players.

Bodog WSOP FreerollsOn Friday April 15, 2011 the US Department of Justice seized Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, UB and Absolute Poker’s websites and effectively ending online poker for US players at the top places for USA players to play online poker. This left scores of online poker enthusiasts wondering where USA players will play online poker.

Certainly the lock out of scores of players from their favorite poker rooms put a big question mark out there. Even though these four online poker rooms can not cater to US poker fans, there still remains many reputable alternatives to PokerStars, Full Tilt, UB and Absolute. Granted the current volume in the remain US poker rooms is no where near the level players enjoyed at the big four sites, they still remain a viable place for those players in the US to continue to enjoy the game they love. And actually, in some cases will exceed expectations due to the level of promotions, bonus offers and overall value.

One solid choice for US poker fans to play at is Bodog Poker. Bodog has been treating players right for more than 15 years and are notorious for the soft tables and ready supply of fish just aching to lighten their bankroll to the savvy player.

Not only do you find very soft tables in the cash games and sit n go’s, Bodog also is notorious for heavy overlays in their guaranteed multi table tournaments. The action caps off each Sunday with the Bodog 100K that starts at 4:00 PM (EDT). This game pays out a handsome $25,000 for first place and always has a massive overlay. At $150 + $12 it is one of the better values in major online poker tournaments. Of course you don’t have to ante up the entry fee if you don’t want to… there are qualifiers that run all week that start as low as $1. You will also find a lobby full of guaranteed tournaments that run 24/7.
