One of the keys to running a good online poker website is giving customers what they want. Catering to poker players at every level will make them feel comfortable at the tables and give them the room and the tools to move up or down in limits as needed. Everest Poker knows this and offers everything from higher stakes to freerolls, with a heavy concentration on providing assistance to those players who are just getting started. New people come to the poker community every day, and making them feel welcome is one of the things Everest does best.
Not only does Everest provide tutorials and play money tables at which new players can feel comfortable and learn the basics of the games, but the site offers opportunities to build a bankroll out of nothing. That’s right. By joining the site by name only and not depositing funds right away, players can still begin earning that bankroll by utilizing the Shasta sit-n-go tables.
Shasta is set up specifically to help budding players. The ten-player sit-n-go tournaments have pots worth $.10, which gives players the chance to slowly build a bankroll without risking any of their own money. The tables are also an ideal place to try new things and discuss poker with other players.
As players build confidence and bankrolls, there are tables to help them along their poker paths. The Sixty games are limit hold’em sit-n-go opportunities with twenty six-max tables, which require no buy-in and have prize pools of $.60. And one step beyond that are Fuji no-limit hold’em one-table tournaments or Tweed pot-limit Omaha sit-n-go’s that only require a buy-in of $.05. Ask any pro, and they’ll tell you that starting low and working your way up consistently and steadily is the best way to learn the game and hone those skills.
Everest Poker has even started a Shasta fan page on Facebook for players to comment and share their stories. Some of the comments thus far consist of noting that Shasta tables make the game more interesting and that tight play might be the best approach. Said one commenter, “With [Shasta tables] and a couple of prizes from private tournaments, I played my way into cash games and boosted my bankroll to where it is now.”
