iPoker Changes Will Have a Big Impact on Ladbrokes

Fixed Limit, Heads Up and high stakes cash game players will see the main differences.Ladbrokes Poker

All Fixed Limit Hold’em full ring games are to end, leaving aficionados of one of the most traditional forms of poker limited to 6-max tables.

Heads Up specialists will deeply miss the $10/$20, $25/$50, $50/$100, $100/$200 and $200/$400 NLHE and Omaha games--even if only as spectators. High stakes railbirds will have to make do with $50/$100 6-max No Limit Hold’em (NLHE) and $200/$400 Full Ring.

Sit and Go players will have to redo some of their maths, as tables switch from ten seat to a nine seat format.

All game types will now conform to four standard formats and time bank allowances:

  • Shallow - 20 to 50BBs
  • Normal - 40 to 100BBs
  • Ante - 100BBs, antes
  • Anonymous - 30 to 100BBs
  • Time banks will be 20s for NLHE, 25s for PLO and 20s for Speed Poker

Between now and mid January all US$ denominated stakes will be changed to Euro (€) stakes and tournament buy ins will be converted to their Euro (€) equivalents.

The changes should be positive for European players, but could be problematic for full ring Fixed Limit players and those who want USD ($) stakes.  Since most Ladbrokes players hail from Europe, the iPoker-specific changes shouldn't have a large impact.  

The lowest rake for Fixed Limit players is on offer at PokerStars, Americas Cardroom, Black Chip Poker and Carbon Poker. For players at the nosebleed stakes, PokerStars and Full Tilt offer plenty of choice and action.
