Party Poker is almost similar to Empire Poker so some parts of this review contain information also related to Empire. Party Pokerís traffic appears to be the biggest on the net. In June 2004 the average number of ring game real-money players was 8,000-10,000 at peak hours and the average number of tournament real-money players was 11,000-13,000 at peak hours. Party Poker hosts more than 70% of all fixed limit Texas Holdem tournaments in the world.
The software of Party Poker is nice and easy to use. Table graphics are less impressive than at Empire Poker, but from a practical standpoint the playability is good. Characters do sit at the table, suits can be easily distinguished, what else do we need? The game doesnít eat up computer's resources and connection in the presence of one of the biggest traffic among online poker rooms is mostly constant. Delays or disruptions happen rare.
For some reason, the view flop percentages are not presented and one can only see the average pot size of the last 20 hands. It is better to watch the game for a few minutes before joining it.
