Poker Atlas Reviews

General Discussion by barry1128 Posted

I feel Poker Atlas serves a good purpose for poker players. But I would caution people as I would think the staff of Poker Atlas would caution you to take extreme reviews seriously. Some of the negative input you get is simply ridiculous. I assume some of the far fetched stories are by people who have lost money, had a bad experience or are trying to help another poker room post. If you know many of the poker rooms as I do having played frequently in the Los Angeles, Chicago, Tunica and Las Vegas poker rooms, you know that the life's blood of a poker room is it's clientele and to be rude, allow collusion, or any action that jeopardize the errosion of that clientele is ridiculous. Not to say that poker rooms are not run by humans who make mistakes, but if you are a veteran poker player you know that the players are the problem much more than the staff. I was personally at a table at Tunica when a player from Texas was out of line and drunk, soon getting into conflict with multiple players at the table. The dealer did his best to peacefully correct the problem, but soon had to call the floor manager. The player responded with a drunken barrage of profanity toward the dealer, floor manager and other players. He was asked to leave as politely as possible. Soon I read a review that was obviously from this same player that was so full of incorrect information and poor ratings, it was just wrong. I know all internet accessible ratings and reviews have problems, but I would as that readers are cautious about these reviews.
