Coming to you from the same folks who brought you Golden Palace Casino is Golden Palace Poker, and you can expect the same air of fun and quality support. Not a lot of variety is offered in game choice, but if you like Hold'em with plenty of action, this is the site for you.
Everything is pretty industry standard on this site, meaning a 5% rake that caps at $1 for up to $1/$2 games, and caps at $3 for higher limits. The limits range from $0.05/$0.10 to $10/$20, and a couple $50/$100 tables for the high rollers.
A lot of the traffic at Golden Palace Poker comes from their sister site, Golden Palace Casino, which typically means looser, softer players who like to gamble. During peak hours you can expect to run into about 800 or so players online in the ring games, and as much as 2,000 in the tournaments.
Limit, Pot Limit, and No Limit Texas Hold'em is where most of the action is at, which is understandable considering a lot of the traffic is coming from the casino. There are some Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo, both available in Limit and Pot-limit. The site is pretty standard with its layout, without many bells and whistles. Navigation is fine, tables are fine. No note taking functions detract, however.
Lots of free rolls and a few high limit games are appealing at Golden Palace Poker. There are buddy lists to use and a frequent poker player points program, but beyond that no huge features. Access to the casino is great for those who like casino sites, and the competition can be loose and soft, coming from Golden Palace Casino.
Three options for customer support at Golden Palace Poker, and all three work well; Email, live chat, and telephone, for those issues that need the personal touch.
