Run it Once Poker is a new poker room created by poker player Phil Galfond. The launch of RIO was postponed for two years and now the room became fully operational. The main feature of this poker room is that it was developed by poker players for poker players. Within this goal, Galfond promises that the room will run honestly and transparently.

UPD. The room was officially closed on January 3rd, 2022.

Run It Once is available on Windows OS. The interface of the poker room is implemented in dark-gray colors, which corresponds to the Run It Once brand.

Currently, there are only cash tables in the room. The team plans to add tournaments in the near future. Users are able to set up the game table theme and deck color themselves.

Any programs for collecting statistics are prohibited in the room and the site administration will take tough measures to fight with violators.

The poker room has just launched, so you won't find thousands of players there. Only cash tables work in the room so far and tournaments will be added later. On the first day of launch, about 150 people gathered online at tables with low limits up to nl2.

The room has a unique rakeback system called Splash the Pot. According to this system, players in hands at cash tables receive additional amounts to pots that is determined randomly. So the players are returned with 30% of the total rake. In addition to Splash the Pot, players at RIO Poker are also offered weekly cash rewards through the Legends program.

The rake in the Run It Once Poker room will be given as follows:

It’s always nice to be at the same table with such a famous professional as Galfond! It is great that they made that he plays here in this room not anonymously!

I can compare this room with Pokerstars New Jersey - like a reservation, very few players play here. Maybe someday the situation will change for the better.

Giving 5 stars in advance. Thought there would be empty tables, but was pleasantly surprised. Of course the room is far from the Stars, but I like the idea. Galfond is a cool guy!

Played a little on Run It Once Poker and there were no major issues. But there is one thing to note - mucking of winning hand at showdown runs extremely fast. It makes it almost impossible to read the winning hand, especially in PLO.
