I’m sure someone has played at PoolComps before, they seem to have been around for ages.

What did you think of their site and the PoolComps games?

OK, I asked a friend of mine to go and do a review on poolcomps to see what they thought and send me the details. This is what they came back with, it’s a little over the top but at least it’s positive!

PoolComps Review – Online Pool Site Review

The PoolComps.com site is fresh and new.  The deep green and black contrasts with vibrant yellows and gives the site a hip, young, and professional feel.   The website boasts that PoolComps is crowned the best online pool game in the world by the World Pool-Billiard Association.  The layout of the website helps draw your attention to the most important.

PoolComps.com offer free membership to individuals seeking a general membership and a charge of $29.95 for business members.  The user-friendly website allows you to click on membership types for a complete comparison of the membership types.  Although it’s not available for general members, business members have the ability to earn bonuses.  And, if you are interested in earning bonuses or have questions simply click on the earn income Earn Income option on the left side of the screen to watch an informative video on PoolComp’s bonus plan.

Yet, the testimonials really set PoolComps.com apart from other online gaming sites, with members that actually earn a good income.  And, the site proudly boasts the membership of a few World Champions of online pool.  Yet, there is a sense of community and members have the ability to chat with other members.  By clicking on the “Pool Hall,” you can chat with friends or learn a few new tricks.

The site has a robust frequently asked question of FAQ section that covers several topics.  Those new to the site or online gaming can gain answers on everything, from basic account questions to tournaments and technical issues.  The PoolComps.com website layout is user friendly, but still laidback.  The best place to start if you are new to the site   is the FAQ section.  Yet, you may find that the site does go into great detail on very important issues such as security. Information about what other things such as Paypal is accepted is also difficult to find.  Although PoolComps.com offers a nice array of services; you must be logged in, in order to access these benefits, such as the business centre.

If you are new to the site and a little unsure, Poolcomps.com allows you to participate in an interactive demo.  And, to quench a competitive streak, or simply sharpen your skills you can play tournaments.  PoolComps.com has weekly running tournaments; so, you can always jump in on the action.  Currently members can play a few various types of pool or snooker.  However, the website hints and things to come.  If you click on the More Games section, you are given a glimpse of games soon to come to the PoolComp’s website.

PoolComp’s.com offers access to practice rooms and coaching lessons.   Most of the site’s pool games last about 30minutes.  The website has a professional feel; yet the graphics and chat will appeal to young professionals, or serious pool players.  And, like many other online gaming sites you have the choice to play for money; or you can simply play for fun.  Overall it’s a good website for anyone who loves to play pool.

It seems like there’s something wrong with the PoolComps.com website.

It doesn’t load at all. I don’t have any idea how long it’s been like this but if anyone knows why their site is down it’d be good to find out?

Looks like the Pool Comps site has been properly shut down. I heard from another online pool source that they were an Australian company and that there were rumours around for a while that the Pool Comps shut down might be happening.

Pool Comps closing is a sad thing, it’s never good to see an online pool site go missing, especially one that had a lot of people playing on it at one point.

Hopefully they’re going to come back one day

Still nothing showing on PoolComps.com.

It’s the weirdest thing for a website like this that has an entire network of players behind it to just disappear.

Usually if a site like PoolComps shuts down both the player list and definitely the domain name would be sold to someone else and it’d either be re-launched or at the least re-directed to another place.

Maybe we’ll find out what happened one day?
