Categories for the Online Poker Awards

The categories we chose for our online poker awards closely follow those used in our reviews and ratings. However, we added several new categories such as Poker Endorsements and Poker Promotions because many online poker sites seem to be competing in these areas. In other categories like Most and Biggest Fish, well, we figured that many players would be interested in knowing about the best places to go fishing.

Online Poker Software


Poker Stars is the current leader in online poker software. Sharp and fast, their software features multi-tableplay and has an excellent system for statistics, player notes, and a useful Time Bank. Some of the toughest competition and most serious online poker veterans can also be found here.

Online Poker Games


Paradise Poker has a wide variety of poker games to choose from including Texas Hold'em, Crazy Pineapple, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo, Five Card Stud, and Draw Poker. They also have tables with a wide range of stakes to choose from.

Online Poker Tournaments


Poker Stars is known for their excellent poker tournaments and tournament system, and their software is also on par with that of Paradise Poker. They can boast that the 2003 and 2004 WSOP champions both qualified in satellite tournaments at PokerStars.

Online Poker Site with the Most Fish

Most Fish

Pacific Poker is affiliated with the world's largest online casino, which supplies a steady stream of fish to their poker room. If you are looking for soft competition, this is the site for you.


Online Poker Site with the Biggest Fish

Biggest Fish

InterPoker has games denominated in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling, and Euros and has a fairly large European and international player base. A large portion of these players play quite fast and loose and there seems to be a lot and soft competition at Interpoker.
