Match Poker is played like a standard No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em poker game, with the key difference being that when you play Match Poker, you will always be competing against other players who are playing the same hand as you, from the same position as you. Also, the game has a different scoring system.
The game even has its own International Federation (International Federation of Match Poker) with a mission to grow this skill poker game internationally.
Match Poker received recognition as a ‘Mind Sport’.
In April 2010, IFMP secured provisional membership of the International Mind Sports Association (IMSA) at IMSA’s annual congress in Dubai
Where to compete at Match Poker online?
The Match Poker Online app revolutionizes poker by allowing players for the first time to see how they stack up skill-wise against each other.
How is this possible? Players around the world don’t play random hands, but instead battle it out in the exact same hands as other players, with the goal of winning as many chips as possible.
This offers some unique and fun insight as players see how their own decisions compare against others. You can determine if your aggression was ill-advised or maybe you should have raised instead of checking. All of these statistics are available from every match for players to review.
