Carbon Poker is a comparatively new poker room based on the newly created Merge Gaming network, which is mostly based on the former Poker.com software, functionality and player base. The most obvious advantage of this online poker room is that they accept deposits from U.S. players, therefore offering a large player volume, especially during peak hours. There are plenty of outstanding promotions, stylish and very playable software and a lot of loose games. The game variety is also very impressive – players will find all popular poker games including variations. I must also admit that according to my observations their player base is growing faster than at some other poker rooms.

Carbon Poker Hits

I want to highlight the most important hits of Carbon Poker, besides of those, mentioned in the Summary section of this poker room review. So, the most attractive features of this poker room are:

  • Outstanding game variety
  • Slick, fast and reliable software
  • Accepts deposits from U.S. players
  • Outstanding Multi-Table-Tournament Leader Board program
  • Site, lobby and software design are top of the industry
  • Flexible deposit and cashout options

Carbon Poker Misses

Even the best poker rooms have certain misses and Carbon Poker is not an exception. These are not critical misses, but I think they should consider improving the following things:

  • Their software does not support ring game and tournament data to Poker Tracker
  • You can’t export your hand history from the software suite

Although Carbon Poker is a comparatively new online poker room in the market, it’s clear to me that they’re determined to succeed and gain one of the leading positions in the industry. They already have a large player base and constantly attract thousands of new players with massive promotions, outstanding game variety, best software and flexible financial options, which include quick withdrawals and wide variety of payment methods. Carbon poker is based on the Merge Gaming network that allows them to accept deposits from U.S. players, which is a great advantage over many other poker rooms.

Carbon Poker Traffic Volumes and Competition

Carbon Poker has a large player base, which is constantly growing because of great options and outstanding promotions they offer to both new and returning players.

Real money player statistics as of January 2009 – March 2009 show up to 1,200 ring game and 2,500 tournament players during peak hours.

I must also admit that games at Carbon Poker are pretty loose, because there are plenty of new and therefore inexperienced players, which take their first shot at poker in general and online poker in particular. If you are looking for fish – check low and micro stakes, though you can find loose games at higher levels as well.

They offer Texas Holdem, Omaha, Imaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud Hi and Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo, Five Card Stud, Five Card Draw, A-5 Lowball, 2-7 Lowball, H.O.R.S.E., Razz and Badugi poker.
