Using the features like the tag is easy and could prove vital for your poker game. You can tag an opponent with; shark, fish, bluffer, buddy, champion, on tilt, easy or just no tag. In the same window, notes of each opponent can be added, pretty simple but smart solution in having all in one place. Further, in the tag window, one could see how well you have done in previous poker tournaments. If you have won a tournament or two, you will be rewarded with a trophy, ribbon and other special accolades, which will then be visible for others when checking your tag.

Are you interested in playing multiple tables simultaneously? No problem at With resizable tables, mini view and 2×2 you have good options to customize the game to fit your needs. The game stats provide all the necessary statistics and the hand history function allows previously played hands to be displayed.

One cool feature is the Rabbit Hunting, which means that when a player wins a pot before the river some players would like to know if they would have won the hand if they had stayed in the hand longer. Rabbit Hunt, is to ask the dealer to expose those cards that would have come if the player would have played the hand.

Further, if you haven’t tried it, with Carbon Poker you can expose one of your hole cards. Either if you are folding a big bet or if no one called your bet, this feature adds some extra juice.



Carbon Poker offers decent traffic action with an average of 5,000 online players up to peak hours with 8,000. There could be poor traffic, around 1,000 online players, outside peak hours with most of the traffic on Texas Holdem games. At an average night there is actually quite good Omaha and 7 Card Stud traffic and Merge Gaming Network continue to grow.

US players are welcome to play poker for real money at Carbonpoker. Poker players from America tend to be the majority at this poker site.
