Golden Tiger Poker was launched in October of 2002 and is still one of the smaller, but more active poker rooms on the Internet. Since its launch, Golden Tiger has delivered over 650,000 hands to their customers, primarily for Texas Hold'em, but also 5 and 7 Card Stud Poker. The advantages of a “smaller” poker room are: fewer people make it a more friendly atmosphere, since you keep seeing the same folks whenever you play, and on the flip side of that is fewer people more than likey means it's harder to find a game other than Texas Hold'em during non-peak hours.
Golden Tiger Poker is powered by Microgaming which is behind the Prima Poker Network, and also a member of the Interactive Gaming Council and operates under their code of conduct guaranteeing fair and honest gaming. They have independently reviewed Random Card Shufflers, the results of which are published on their website by the RCS Auditors.
