Golden Tiger Poker was launched in October of 2002 and is still one of the smaller, but more active poker rooms on the 'net.
Since launch, Golden Tiger Poker has delivered over 500,000 hands to their customers, primarily for Texas Hold'em, but also 5 and 7 Card Stud Poker. The advantages and disadvantages of a “smaller” poker room are just two sides of the same coin: Fewer people make it a more friendly atmosphere, since you keep seeing the same folks whenever you play, but fewer people usually means it's harder to find a game other than Texas Hold'em during non-peak hours.

The interface and the “play” of Golden Tiger is consistent, the number of seats at a table varies from 2 for 1 on 1 Hold'em, to 8 seats for 5 and 7 card stud and 10 players to each Texas/Omaha Hold'em, tables. The lobby allows you to view open tables, by the type of game. Each game list allows you to view the stakes for the game, the number of people playing and when relevant and the number of people waiting to play. You'll be able to choose the betting limits you're comfortable with. Texas Hold'em stakes range from $.50/$1 to as much as a $50/$100 table. Once you’re in there, you'll see a table and chairs - but only names for players, not Avatars (people) like at most poker rooms. Right click a player’s name for more info on them and the ability to keep notes.
All the games are great if you like that particular version of poker. Texas Hold'em is typically the most popular variation, with 7 Card Stud following closely behind.
