Interface
Sportsbook.Com Poker has a mediocre interface at best. It is easy to locate the game you want to play in but the lobby screen is just a bit bland and I don't think the color scheme really goes together. However, I was very impressed by the table view and really liked the 3D avatars. The feel while playing was very realistic and despite the shortcomings of the lobby since the majority of the time is spent at the tables warrants the high rating earned by the interface.

Game Variety
Sportsbook.com Poker has a decent variety of games but I was not impressed by the amount and variety of tournaments offered. With that said, the number of satellites offered on Sportsbook were far and beyond many other poker sites that I've seen. That was very impressive and leaves a lot of opportunity for smaller bankroll players to get into their larger tournaments. The buy-in to pay-out ratio in tournaments was about average but could be a little better.

Cash games have a very nice assortment of levels actually, which was quite impressive. Limits start at $0.02/$0.04 and go up to $100/$200 which is a pretty impressive range of stakes to play at. Sportsbook has a very active player base and it's not hard at all to find a full table.

Ease of Deposit/Withdrawal
Sportsbook.com removed quite a few ways for US players to deposit however they still allow US players to deposit through credit cards and a few other ways. For non-US players the usual NetTeller, FirePay, myCitadel processors are available. With the available methods as a US player, it wasn't too difficult to deposit. Withdrawing was a bit of a pain but not overly ridiculous. They allow withdrawals through check, e-check and neteller which I feel limits the options a little bit.

Security/Stability
Sportsbook.com has been around for about 10 years and has become a very large gambling company. They are secure and stable so I felt at ease while playing at Sportsbook.

Players
Most of the players at Sportsbook.com are the online definition of loose and super-loose, usually seeing around 50-60% of flops. The player base isn't as large as some of the major poker sites but the player base is very active and has no problems filling up the tables. I believe Sportsbook to be a very good and profitable site for players who are accustomed to the loose-tendencies of online players.

Bad Beats
One of the high points of Sportsbook.com is the time I spent playing there I didn't see anything out of the ordinary from the RNG that you wouldn't see at live tables. However, while this is still an online poker site the occasional awful suck-out with a ridiculous runner-runner combo will hit with more frequency than live but I found Sportsbook.com Poker to be above most of the other sites as far as not torturing players too much with a horrendous RNG shuffling algorithm.

Overall
Sportsbook.Com is a pretty good site and I would take this site into heavy consideration if you haven't yet selected a poker site to play at. If you already do play somewhere else, I still recommend Sportsbook as a backup plan if you just can't handle the tilting beats dished out on other sites. Sportsbook might provide a good break for you and allow you to actually play.
