ldquo;We’re currently busy preparing for the upcoming OFC World Championship in Prague, but the launch of our in house built rake free six max Texas Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha cash games has been on our agenda for a while now and we didn’t want to wait any longer,” said Tonybet Poker representative Warren Lush. “We remain the world’s leading Open Face Chinese poker site but now with the addition of new cash games we will give our players the chance to play NLH and PLO on our site instead of searching for them somewhere else.”
“I’m super excited about the addition of Texas Hold’em and Omaha cash games to the site,” Tonybet Poker pro Isabelle Mercier added. “We love OFC poker here at Tonybet and will continue spreading the word about this rapidly growing game. However, the new games will give us even more leverage in the competitive online poker market. I really admire the decision to make them rake-free on launch which should drive a massive amount of players once the good news gets out.”
The addition of Texas Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha follows the site’s direction of providing action-packed poker gaming with players getting involved in as many hands as possible. For this reason none of the Hold’em or Omaha tables will allow more than six players at a time.
NLH and PLO cash games are available in micro stakes at the current time with the blinds ranging from €0.01/€0.02 to €0.25/€0.50. The site will gradually increase the availability of games at different stakes and plans to introduce sit and go as well as multi-table tournaments in the near future.
New sign-ups are entitled to a 100% up to €500 welcome bonus with the promo code STARTER. Since Texas Hold’em and Omaha games are free or rake, it presents a good opportunity to check out that Open Face Chinese poker everyone’s been talking about while clearing the bonus.
The news comes just two weeks before the Open Face Chinese Poker World Championship. After a highly successful inaugural live event in 2014, the Tonybet Poker OFC World Championship makes a keenly anticipated return to King’s Casino at the Corinthia Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic between 6th – 8th December with even bigger expectations!
