Seals With Clubs Overview

SWC PokerSwC Poker first launched in August of 2011 as the now close Seals with Clubs in an effort to offer bitcoin poker to players from around the world including the United States.

The site was created by a team of online poker players that were looking for a solution to the events of Black Friday, the day the US Department of Justice took down poker giants Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars.

SwC Poker is ran by pro poker player Bryan Micon. Micon is the chairman of SwC Poker and has be a large piece of the success of the site since its launch. Micon has made 14 final tables in his career with 3 wins, 42 cashes and live tournament earnings of $473,423.

Cash Games

Cash games are the most popular at SwC Poker. They offer games in Limit & PL Omaha, Limit & PL Omaha Hi-Lo as well as NL Hold’em. The site averages around 100 players online at any given time of day. You can always find a game of 1/2 NL Hold’em being played.


For a smaller site SwC Poker offers a number of great tournaments. The largest is the “Big BTC” which is held every Sunday at 6pm Eastern time. The buy-in is 2 BTC with a guaranteed prize pool of 60 BTC/60,000 seal chips. The prize pool can become even larger with more entries.

Guaranteed & Freerolls

Every hour at middle of each hour they also offer a 400 seal chips guaranteed tournament. The buy-in is 45+5 SC. On the top of each hour there are also turbo freerolls where you can win 50 chips prizes.


SwC Poker has average competition compared to most other sites. There is not a lot of fish out there though. Most of the players at the site have played online poker before and have so knowledge of basic poker strategy. That is not to say that the tables are extremely hard either.

Promotions and Deposit Bonus

The best promotion at SwC Poker is their table starter rakeback. Few other online poker sites offer a promotion like this. If you start a new table and keep it going you earn 50% rakeback. The number of players at the table doesn’t matter as long as rake is being produced.


They also offer a very nice rakeback deal for loyal players. You can earn from 2% to 50% rakeback depending on the amount of poker you play at SwC Poker.


SwC Poker take their software security very seriously stating, “The SealsWithClubs management promises to vigorously defend the integrity of our games, and ask our community of players to always be watchful and report anything you feel needs our attention as soon as possible.”


The graphics are not the best out there and look a little out dated, but they have added a number of features to the software like both downloadable, browser and Android versions.
