Run it Once Poker is created by a great ambassador for Poker, Phil Galfond, a crusher of the highest stakes for years in the online and live setting Phil has had successful training sites and other business ventures and for a long time, a new poker experience for all kinds of players has been his focus.
Launched in February 2019, the site is still currently in beta testing, with the team working on the software still currently, however, the site is live and running for players to jump in and get a taste with Pot limit Omaha and No Limit Hold’em cash games running.
The software on the site so far is great, very clean to look at and has some very unique features, with a fully downloadable client on both Windows and Mac. A nice innovation from the run it once team is that all play on the tables is anonymous, so while you are assigned an avatar that will not change for your view, you will appear as a random avatar and name on other players tables each time you sit at a game.
Another difference between this poker offering and other big names out there is that no extra software is allowed on the site, so no HUDs can be used for example. Giving a more even playing field for play between Professionals and Amateurs.
The site has the usual little adjustments you would expect such as table, card and background themes being interchangeable. One personal thing I would recommend is applying the 4 colour deck, this always makes hand reading much easier, especially in Pot Limit Omaha games.
This is where the software comes alive, with the dynamic avatars expressing the statistics of a player’s actions from the hands you have played with them, so for instance if you have played 20 hands with someone and they have raised nearly all of them, they will be aggressive and their avatar will be nearly bursting into flames on the screen, alternatively, played with someone who has yet to put a chip in the pot, they will most likely be sleeping!
The stakes are fairly wide, with games running from €4 buy-ins at the No Limit Hold’em level, all the way to €500 at the €2/€5 stakes. All these games are based around a 100bb buy-in and it seems at least for the time being that there is no movement on this with short stack and deep stack options not there yet.
The Pot limit Omaha games start from a €10 buy-in and play as high €5/€10 with a €1000 buy-in. So something for everyone there too.
However, we have to imagine Phil and his team have some really great ideas for the site and the games are simply limited at the moment while they are still testing and developing the full software.
Unlike any other site, Run it Once Poker offers Splash pots with added big blinds to random pots as a way of rakeback, this is their way of giving 51% rakeback to the players. One gold coin added to the pot is one extra big blind, a bronze coin is 25 big blinds and platinum chips are worth 100 big blinds.
Sign up Promotion
Run it Once are offering 100% Deposit bonus up to €600! A great sign up offer.
Unlike other sites with very complicated points systems to unlock said bonuses, things have never been more clear with this site, with a bonus tracker in the players’ dashboard showing the percentage left to unlock the next bonus installment.
Yet another great offer from the site, if you are a twitch poker streamer or even just looking to become one, Run it Once poker will give you up to 110% rakeback for streaming the site!
That means they will pay you to play, not only will you get all your rake paid on the tables back, but an extra 10% on top!
They offer Rakeback for streamers of all levels, with a calculator on how much you would get with certain hours of play and viewers, so even if you are just starting out you can apply on the site to get the extra rakeback.

There are many alternative options if you don’t want to use your bank cards on the site, Bank transfers, Much Better, ecoPayz, AstroPay Card and eWallet services like Skrill and Neteller are all accepted.
The site has a great support team, with any issues getting responded to within a quick time frame. They have support via Email and a Discord chat. So you can get any help required instantly.
Only in Beta testing, this site is already showing a great deal of promise, with games running around the clock with a few hundred players at the moment choosing to log in and play the run Pot Limit Omaha and No limit Hold’em 6Max cash games on the site. With the splash pots giving players 51% rakeback and the 100% deposit bonus, there aren’t many poker sites offering such a fun pool to jump into and with anonymous play leveling the playing field against pros this is a friendly site for all players.
