Planet Poker
 
Review:

I like the graphics, they tell me its gonna take at least 2 days to cash out to Neteller, instead of signup bonuses they have Planet Points which can be used to buy stuff or play in tournys with cash prizes.

Competition at my level is light, but not many players at this site.

A delay of two business days on cashouts is about average.

While I like a lot about this site, I find the graphics to be glaring and difficult to follow. Headaches generally ensued and so I have abandoned this site.

I gave this site another try and here is what I learned:

-- The blinds in the tournaments go up real fast.

-- The all-in hands are played out so quickly that it is sometimes difficult to tell what just happened.

-- The button bar that pops up when it is your turn to bet call or fold covers a fair amount of the play table making it tricky to see how many people are in or out of the pot.

-- There is no button for "bet the pot" or a way to enter a precise bet amount. Sometimes you just have to get close to the bet you had in mind and go with that.

-- Some of the satellites that are listed on their tournament schedule give you no clue about the date or time of the main event. (Wierd!)

The bottom line is that you have to be on your toes to play at
Planet Poker. Having said that, there are definitely worse place to play.
I will stick it out there for a while longer and see what happens.
