The Broadway Tables poker room download is smooth and intuitive, so you should have no worries getting to the action quickly. There's a prominent download link on their site which will start the 15.1MB FullBroadwayTablesSetup.exe file downloading. While it's not the smallest file you will ever have downloaded, it's a fairly standard size for most poker rooms these days and should not take long to complete with a normal internet connection. The installation process is completely straight-forward, and once the software is on your computer you can use it to go ahead and create an account.
Security is very important to the people at Broadway Tables, and you can see their claims of safe software and secure deposits both on their website and in the poker room download, which is a great sign. Once deposited, your money is held by the Cake Network rather than Broadway Tables itself, so even though the poker room is relatively new, you can be confident that your hard-earned money is secure with a well-established and well-trusted network.
The Broadway Tables poker room download offers both Spanish and English as language choices. While this is not as many languages as some other larger poker rooms offer, it is nice to see that people other than native-English speakers are being considered. You can also be confident that both languages will be accurate and well-supported, rather than the poker site merely churning out generic word-for-word translations into tens of languages.
Basically any modern computer running Windows should be fully compatible with the Broadway Tables poker room download. Windows 2000, XP, Vista or later are all acceptable options for operating systems, and as long as you have a recent version of Internet Explorer or Firefox and at least 256MB of RAM, you'll have no problems. Obviously the more modern your computer the more smoothly everything will run, but at the end of the day the poker room download is not very straining, so it's unlikely your computer will run into difficulties.
US Players are welcome to join in the fun, Broadway Tables still accepts new accounts, deposits and withdrawals from the United States through their poker room download. Pretty much the only people left slightly in the cold are Mac users, as there is currently no downloadable client for Mac OS. That said, although they didn't design the software with Mac in mind, they have gone to the trouble of testing it with a number of different Windows emulators and found it satisfactory, so with a bit of commitment Mac users can also enjoy the Broadway Tables poker room download.
The software itself is easy to use. Once running, players can select if they wish to play tournaments or ring games, by means of a button at the top of the window. Here, players can continue to narrow down the tables on offer by game type, limit, etc. until only the exact type of tables that are being sought are displayed in the poker room download lobby. Players can also choose to display different game types at the same time, the system is both flexible and easy to use, with the only slightly strange feature being that there is a misleading tab for Stud games, despite no Stud games being offered at this time.
Aesthetically, the poker room download is a bit of a mixed bag. The choice seems to have been clearly made for functionality over appearance, with useful but odd features such as the fold button being a different color than the other buttons on offer once seated at a table. On the other side of things, the poker room download comes with 3D avatars which really make playing a more enjoyable experience. Users simply choose which character they wish to be, and then when seated at a table their avatar takes his or her place alongside those of the other members, and the whole thing looks just like a real poker table.
The functionality may have taken priority on this one over the looks, but that's by no means a terrible thing. In addition to the well designed lobby system, once you actually get onto the tables you should have no problems at all, as everything is fairly straight-forward. You can run as many tables simultaneously as your brain can handle, there is no limit set by the poker room download, and these tables are fully resizable. Broadway Tables also features an instant hand history replayer, which is great if you missed a bit of the action or feel like thinking through a situation in a bit more depth.
The Broadway Tables poker room download is well put together, and definitely worthy of your time. The download process itself is simple, you should have no trouble running it regardless of where you live in the world, whether you speak Spanish or English, and even no matter the computer you use. The poker room lobby is easy to navigate and the tables are really functional. If you're looking for a new poker room then definitely check out Broadway Tables.
