Gameplay - 8/10

The usual array of poker games can be found at Cool Hand Poker including Texas Hold ‘em, Five-card Stud, Seven-card Stud, Omaha and One-on-One Poker. The way it differs from many other online poker rooms is by limiting players to only two real money tables and one tournament table at a time. This will frustrate certain players who like to play as many multi-hands as possible, but for newbies it is essential to developing your game. A sort of “walk before you run” approach to playing poker.

Customer Service - 6.5/10

Cool Hand Poker only appears to have one method of support, a live chat service. Personally, I found this chat box annoying as it resized my firefox browser to fit the chat window. This didn't happen in IE, but not all of us use this browser. Wait times are not too long, but can take up to 10 minutes at busy times. Support agents are quite knowledgeable, but I would prefer to chat with someone, especially when it gets complicated.
