Review Process Introduction
 
 
Review process introduction
 
The websites shown on Poker-Shark.co.uk are all recommended by our in house team and third party reviewers. As a player there is certainly no shortage of rooms available but we can assure you that there are plenty of operators out there where your playing experience is not their number one priority. We have played and reviewed a number of sites and not all of them make it to our leader board. We will continue to visit new sites and re-evaluate our existing sites on a regular basis to ensure that standards are maintained.
We have ranked our favourite operators on several different factors:-
 
Game Type Ranking
 
Bonus
 
Tournaments
 
Trust
 
Overall
 
When you click through into one of these sections you are shown the rankings as we have listed them. You have the option from this point to read a full review on the poker room. Or you can click directly to the site and begin downloading their poker software. The great thing about the way our site works is that you can look at the site from several different perspectives and come away with more information that will help you make a more informed decision.
 
The websites that make it to our leader board are all of a high quality and we would be bold enough to say that we doubt you will have a bad experience with any of them. These poker sites are all very competitive and they are constantly bringing new innovative ideas to the proverbial poker table. For the purpose of our rankings, it means that what is at the top today maybe at the bottom next week – they are all very close in that respect. Rest assured if something changes with one of our partners, we will hear first so if you are looking to try something new and want to stay in the loop, bookmark Poker-Shark.co.uk and sign up to our newsletter.

Tournament Reviews
Poker-shark.co.uk have reviewed the tournaments on offer from all of the poker rooms that we are supporting on this site. The reviews will give you a clear understanding of what the poker rooms offer and what the differences are between the tournaments. To give you an understanding of the main tournament types please see the list below

 
Satellite
These tournaments allow the average Joe, who hasn’t got the money to buy his way into a big tournament, earn his way into the competition by winning a seat. Satellite tournaments are usually big multi-table tournaments with a buy-in (although sometimes free) that is a lot lower than the buy-in for the big tournament.
 
Sit N Go
These are regular tournaments that have a set amount of entrants. A fixed buy-in fee. Some allow a re-buy or an add-on. Each player starts the tournament with a set amount of chips and fights against the other players and the quickly rising blinds. These are a great practice ground for all aspiring players. These tournaments can be played on a single table or can be multi-table tournaments.
 
Heads Up
These are one on one tournaments’ that have a fixed buy-in. Obviously winner takes all!
 
Freeroll
These are the best tournaments offered by the poker rooms because they are free to enter and have a guaranteed prize fund. They are popular tournaments so expect some competition. Some poker rooms stipulate that players must be from a certain nation to enter or the player must have accrued a certain number of frequent player points.
These are the main catagories of poker tournaments on offer. But poker is ever changing and new games and tournaments get popular as others lose their lustre so we will add any other tournament information to these reviews as we get them.
