Even high rollers will find action at the cash tables, with big money tables running regularly.

Cash games are a thriving community on Black Chip Poker. They run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a multitude of tables available at all levels. Players will find themselves playing with a curious mix of players. Some are regulars who are on a ton of tables at the same time, vying for VIP system rewards and a payout from The Beast promotion, which we will discuss later. These players are usually quite solid but are not going to have long to make each decision because of the amount of tables they play. Regulars on Black Chip Poker range from weak to very solid, so be sure to take notes and try to notice players who seem to be on all of your tables. The tables also include your normal mix of recreational players but can be regular heavy.
Black Chip Poker does not offer every game type, but still supports a large variety of cash games. No Limit Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Low, 7 Card Stud, and 7 Card Stud Hi/Low are all available.
Traffic is high at the micros and low stakes, with peak hours running from 6pm to 9pm Eastern United States time. Players will be able to find several tables of 6 max action, and usually a few 9 max tables at these levels. Mid and High stakes play is not a ghosttown by any means, with several games running during peak hours and usually a game or two to be found at any time.
The Winning Poker Network has established one of the best payout systems available to United States Players. Checks are still the slowest form of payout, but can get to players in as little as a few days and usually never longer than a few weeks. This is a drastic improvement to the situation a few years ago, when players were lucky to get payouts within a few months, if ever because the poker site had gone under.
There are several options available to Black Chip players for withdraw, including a debit card that can be sent to players. Once it is received, which is usually no longer than a few weeks after it is requested, players can load their withdraws onto the card and either use it as a regular debit card or withdraw cash from an ATM. This option takes no longer than a few days to get your funds.
Western Union is another option to both deposit and withdraw, with transactions generally taking place within a 24 hour period after request. This allows you to go to the Western Union location and either pick up the cash from a withdraw, or fund your account with cash in a deposit.
The most exciting option available to Black Chip poker players is bitcoin, which is now accepted by the site for both withdraws and deposits. Bitcoin is an mostly anonymous and unregulated crypto currency, with ultra fast transfers and very low fees per transaction. In most cases deposits and withdraws done by bitcoin will happen in less than 2 hours once they are approved. The whole process is very simple, only requiring the site and the player to exchange a bitcoin address and then transfer the bitcoins. This is the quickest, most reliable way to get funds on and off a poker site in the world. The anonymity and speed are unmatched by any traditional method. Veterans of the online poker world will know how valuable easy deposits and cash outs are, having dealt with slow and sometimes impossible banking on their poker site for years.
Just a “Heads Up”, but the Heads Up tables at cash games are filled with sharks. New players and those not experienced with one on one play dynamics will struggle to win at the Heads Up tables. Tread carefully when it comes to those games.
