iPoker network

Operating since 2004, iPoker has for long been the number one operator among poker networks, thanks in large part to its user-friendly and ergonomic software.

- With a single click, the client can be set not to post the next big blind
 
Cons:

- Lobby information is updated slowly
- On rare occasions, the client might crash on weaker configurations
- Small card symbols
- Some players may find the notification sounds irritating
