    Looking for online poker recommendations


    When I removed windows from my desktop I was also forced to say goodbye to the application Absolute Poker. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to a good replacement with linux support. I don't care to use emulators like wine or cadega. Thanks in advance.

    You don't care about Wine? But someone was able to use this very game, as reported in the Wine applications DB.
    They said:
    The program installs correctly, and runs. However, creating a new account does not work (possibly due to the program attempting to open a browser window). When you click on the "New User" button, nothing happens.

    However, I was able to test out actual gameplay due to the fact that I already had an account. I was able to log in and play various games without any errors.

    Over the past 6 months - 1 year a lot of big poker rooms have started making their poker games available to Linux users, AbsolutePoker included.

    If you do a google search for "linux poker" you'll see the number one result is:
    LinuxPoker.net - that website explains how to play at Absolute Poker using a Linux PC via their new java powered web-based software.
