Bovada Poker Room

The poker room at Bovada has Texas Holdem, Omaha and 7 card stud. Both Omaha and 7 card stud are offered High and High low split.

The poker tables at Bovada are anonymous. This is a continuance of bodogs theory of banning poker software such as HUDs, and making the game recreational. Novice players have the advantage of hiding their stats from the sharks, while others warn of security concerns from playing anonymous players.
