What’s The Best Online Poker Site To Rail Cash Games After Black Friday?


Before the US market was largely closed to the major online poker sites on Black Friday – April 15, 2011 – the best place to rail high stakes cash games was arguably Full Tilt Poker. 

Affectionately known as Full Tilt or FTP, the site saw epic battles between known poker pros like Phil Ivey, Patrick Antonius and Tom Dwan, so there was no concern over anonymous superuser accounts, as on Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker. 

It was also home to the most epic nosebleeds action of all time, when new Swedish pro Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom took on all comers, including the aforementioned pros and others – Brian Townsend, Isaac Haxton, Ben Tollerene, and Brian Hastings – who won $4 million from Blom in the Winter of 2009.

The United States vs Scheinberg case was damaging but not a knockout blow to poker cash games – many moved to offshore or EU sites.

Best Online Poker Site Cash Games In 2024

Fast forward to 2024, and the best online poker sites according to onlinepoker.ltd now include the likes of CoinPoker.

One of the best poker pros in the world, omaha4rollz, took down a $265k pot above rivering the nuts with his wrap and flush draw.

Notably, CoinPoker is a fully crypto centric online poker site, and its decentralized nature opens it up to worldwide players – fiat currency can’t be deposited, only cryptocurrency including Tether (USDT), Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC), Binance Coin (BNB) or its own native token CoinPoker (CHP) which unlocks 33% rakeback for holders.

That’s an improvement on the old 27% rakeback deal in FTP’s heyday (now replaced by a VIP program) and the existing 27% of ACR Poker – which is largely open to the US but still restricted in several states.

Largest Poker Pot In History

CoinPoker is renowned as hosting the largest online poker in history, a $7.75 million Pot Limit Omaha monster pot.

$500/$1000 stakes still regularly run on the site, not quite as high as the $5000/$1000 games in the video above, but among the largest of any online poker site in the industry.

Multiple tables of $100/$200, $200/400 and $300/$600 can often be seen on Sunday nights, when the action heats up in the evenings following its Sunday tournaments.

Business Insider recently highlighted the crypto poker site’s CSOP tournament series (the crypto series of poker), an annual month long event alongside the CSOP+ with an even larger guaranteed prize pool – wrapping up on June 2nd, the CSOP+ awarded $35 million in GTD prize pools to players.

We recently covered a $304,000 pot on the site in this poker news article.

The high stakes thread – run monthly on the TwoPlusTwo forums – is the best place to find high stakes cash game hand histories, if you miss the live action. Alongside CoinPoker, nosebleeds action also regularly runs on GGPoker.
