Match Poker Online™ features a unique algorithm for ranking poker players, the basis of which lies in how Match Poker is played.
Every time you play a hand on our platform, you are benchmarked against everyone else who played the exact same hand in the exact same game conditions. We deal the decks asynchronously, so potentially thousands of others will have played the same hand you just played, whether it was today, yesterday, or a month before. This builds up a huge dataset upon which we can compare you.
