Natural8.com – New super soft asian site!
The wait is over. We finally get to play to play poker versus a potentially huge Asian player pool who have just started to play poker.
Needless to say, natural8 is soft. And when I say soft, I mean soft. Not like pokerstars soft where it’s a great table if you can spot two recreational funplayers. Tables are filled with recreational pokerplayers from a part of the world that is somewhat new to poker.
“- The new poker boom”
After black Friday hit us in 2011 we have had some tough years in poker where games have been getting tougher and certain stakes and game types have dried up.
Now with the huge Asian poker market entering the poker scene, I feel some optimism coming back among poker players.
Hard working grinders are talking about this being the new poker boom we have been waiting for. And they are probably on to something.
If you think about it. Asia is such a huge market its almost unlimited. Asians are known for loving to gamble and play for money. And what is the best game to play for real money out there? Yeah, that’s poker.
Natural8 is also doing a very good job on promoting their site. Both in standard advertising and social media, but also in the form of signing well known established Asian poker pros such as Dong Kim, Kitty Kuo and Xuan Liu.
Software and features
I need two words to describe their software and selection of games: Fish Friendly!
Let’s talk about the software and client first. It has some awesome features that recreational players love, such as:
* The option to straddle
* Run it three times in all-in pots
* You get offered all-in insurance in all-in pots
Very action inducing features that the recs love.
Other things about natural8 that is in favor of the recreational players is the fact that HUD’s and tracking software is not allowed and they have replaced the chat box with a selection of emoticons.
This means that the recreational players can feel that they are competing on the same terms as the rest of the players and they don’t have to worry about getting berated in the chat if they play a hand badly.
That’s all good, but now let’s talk about selction of games.
Natural8 offers “normal” cash games in form of NLHE and PLO 6-max from NL/PLO10 and all they way up to NL/PLO1k.
But they also have action games such as “fortune spin” wich is similar to Pokerstars spin n go’s and “all-in or fold” wich is a type of cash game where you have 8bb’s in a 4max format and the only options are all-in or fold. If you build a stack in “all-in or fold” you have the option to remove chips above 8bb inbetween hands to reduce variance.
They also have some extremely soft MTT’s with huge overlays all the time.
Whats even left to say? I would just sign up and get started before everyone is all over the site. This is your chance to get in early and take advantage of the super soft games on a Asian poker site with a good rakeback deal!
Use bonus code: 35poker35 when signing up and you will get the maximum rakeback allowed by the site, wich is 35%.
