Tiger Gamin Poker is a fairly small poker room suitable for hobby players looking for soft games. It is a part of the Chic Poker Network, and owned and operated by Thot Management NV. The gambling licenses comes from Curaçao.
Tiger Gaming Poker focuses chiefly on low-stakes players. The minimum for cash games is $0.01/$0.02 and the maximum is $5/$10. When it comes to multi-table tournaments, it is exceedingly rare to find a tournament here where the buy-in is larger than $50. For Sit & Go’s the situation is different and you can find tables where the buy-in is $500.
Unlike poker rooms like PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, Tiger Gaming Poker do not block players from the United States.
The poker software used by Tiger Gaming comes from the Chico Poker Network and far from perfect. One simply has to bite the bullet and accept that this software isn’t very good looking or super smooth to use if one wants to gain access to the super-soft poker games offered by Tiger Gaming. Sometimes the software has a rather annoying delay.
Downloadable poker software is available for both Windows and Mac OS (OSX).
No mobile poker apps are available.
Examples of poker variants offered by Tiger Game Poker:
- Texas Hold’em
- Big Two Poker
- Chinese Poker
Finding Chinese Poker and Big Two Poker online is really rare, so this really sets Tiger Poker apart from other poker rooms.
In Chinese Poker, the player receives 13 cards dealt from a standard 52 card deck. Each player must divide these 13 cards into three poker hands; two containing 5 cards and one containing 3 cards.
In Big Two, the number of cards you receive will depend on the number of players at the table. With four players at the table, each player gets 13 cards. Big Two is a shedding-type game known by several different names, including dà lǎo èr and co daai di.
Compared to giants such as PokerStars and 888 Poker, Tiger Game poker has a very limited tournament offering, but it does include some variation, e.g. turbos, freerolls, 6-max and satellite tournaments to bigger events.
Multi-table tournaments rarely have a buy-in that exceeds $50 and considerably smaller buy-ins is the norm here. With Sit & Go’s on the other hand, there are tables available up to a whopping $500. Sit & Go’s are very popular at Tiger Game Poker, on all levels.
The largest MTT:s with guaranteed price pots have a $20,000 guarantee, so Tiger Gaming Poker is not the place to go if you are looking for poker tournaments with huge guaranteed price pots.
Heads-up tournaments are available at Tiger Game Poker.
