One of the best rooms was Full Tilt for me.
Liked the software, and games besides the silly avatars.

Now the best room is the one you have won the most so far, or getting better results Smile

i havent played n all of them but i think my favourite so far is PKR
first of all i got $50 gift from BRM, the graphics and emotes are in there own leauge and the competition is not to tough either. plus you always have a bonus to unlock equivelant to %30 rake back i think the offer 2 pomotions or bonuses each month.
i think it has a lot less players than some networks but thats how i like it.

before i found PKR i was always on Paty Poker which i think has the best freefolls, most days i still try my luck at the UK 50seat frenzy qualifier wich is a fair chance to get into the weekly $200k gtd for free but i dont think there customer support is any good, plus one thing the only bonus theyve offered me in the past 12 months i wasnt able to get because it was marketing a new payment method and it didnt mention this when you try to claim the bonus(only mentioned in the email) and it took the $50 depoist from my account without applying the bonus where othe sites would tell you that you cant get the bonus have entered an ivalied code or do not qualify. this is one thing that really pissed me off, all i wanted them to do to make ammends was then offer me a deposit bonus that i could use but they would not do this. so f**k them

alot of people rate stars but i never played there. too many players for my likeing
my next task is trying out mansion poker and getting that last gift from BRM will be making that deposit on wednesday so i see how that goes

Stars has the best clientsoftware, the biggest players base and a wide variety of different games. But the bonus offers are usually poor.

Ongame and iPoker are smaller networks, compared to Stars, with worse software, but the bonuses are better.

Well, depending on availability in your country I'd say if you're going to go Ipoker then consider William Hill, their deposit bonus clears at a good rate, Party and Titan are great too. The Cake network was good Times for me and Carbon is nice too.

Although many will diagree i think pokerstars is the best poker platform of the moment...

The support is the best you can find on the market and also the software. The best was indeed full tilt poker.

For me its got to be PKR, i get too easily bored at other rooms.
PKR is fishy, very good deal (rakeback, reloads, points).
Its slow in hands dealt per hour but no problem for me.
Only thing is player base is not that big.

Yes- and rapidly declining.. This is starting to become a serious issue IMHO - especially during aussie times - often when I log on to PKR theres around 1200-1600 people only !

I have played pokerin many pokerrooms but the best is pokerstars. Because they are the biggest pokerroom, you have always action on the tables. I don't remember when I saw last time less tan100'000 players online. At pokerstars youcan play always with a lot of people. Further they have nice promotions and nice tourneys, like Sunday Million, Sunday Storm etc. So if you want to play in a nice atmosphere at a big pokerroom, chose pokerstars. good luck to all

I just recently started (yesterday) on Terminal poker. I've pretty much played everywhere.
Although the playbase is immensly low... yuo still have an instant based poker client. You never have to wait after you fold.
The negative point here is actually also the positive. For example in the 0.02 -0.05 € cash games. Theres an avg of 15 - 23 actively playing. This allows it to go just fast enough that you never have to wait if yuo fold. + You can still analyse the plays of your position.

I'm not going in details what is a good strategy to win there. But my strategy is rather safe and my valuebets get payed off. I turned 5 € in 26.60 € in less than 24hours. I think i played around 4hours now.Also if you played 10raked hands you qualify for the daily €75 tournament and for 100 raked hands for the € 400 tournament which had 330 signups. So in therms of return on investment 100raked hands are around € 1 - 2. So you get that money back from the signup. And the pots are relatively small ingame making it more safe to grind with €5.

I can only pray BRM adds that €5 free bonus again.

Nah - it's not that - there were never that many SNG regs any how. The server has gone to s**t - constant lag and table disconnects - it's a bit better now actually - but for a good few weeks everyone was constantly being disconnected and everything was laggy.. basically complete server meltdown and seemingly very little done to resolve it.. It's still not great.

did you experience any of it? Not everyone was affected.. but a LOT of people.. you seen all the forum threads?

Asking this way, one can never discard Pokerstars, because it’s the biggest one, the one with most promos and events, the one with more money running, the one which gives more opportunities to win, which is what every online poker player wants. But being the most crowded one, also turns it into one of the most difficult to win at. Then you got Party Poker, which is now in the 2nd place of the rank with no doubt, filling the same purposes of PS, only a little bit behind. To me, the best one is that where I have won more and, till now, I have to say: Yachting Poker. Small, few and rookie opponents, small money to share for few players, which increase chances of winning, what can an amateur player want better than this?

Where's good for SNG's?

I don't get why PS seems to have the only good SNG structures.

On 888 network i have to wait for a 18 seat table to fill up, there's only ever one at a time.

And 18 seats is the most they have for SNG's, fricking ridiculous.

Pacific poker networks generally are decent however.

Betfair is good for clearing the bonus and not much else.

Not been on PartyPoker in so long..

Ladbrokes is good (same as Unibet)

Nah i did not was affected by laggy and disconnections, i saw on the PKR.com forum its was crap like hell.
Only had some small lag but not very bad, tbh its ok now, hope the new shedule will come soon with some new MTTs ect.
What i find really strange is they dont invest more in Aussie shedule, nr1 and nr2 rank MTT is aussie and many others in top20 if i am right, so there is deffo a market for PKR.

The sng's on ipoker fill relatively fast but to be honest cant say I recommended them cause
of the collusion that was happening some time ago when i used to play there.

Things may have changed now, plus buy in amount is a factor on this.

I've noticed on certain sites the country of origin will be like 50% spanish in some or whatever - not necessarily collusion but suspect.

They are poker players - you have to expect some dodgy dealings especially online where people are anonymous largely.

I started my adventure in poker on PokerStars. It was great for me, beginning user... I played a tons of astronomer freerolls with ticket to 2k$ Weekly Round Smile I built small bankroll, and I discovered world of S'n'G Smile I built more, and then lose all money Sad

Now, I discover more and more rooms. I'm playing at Unibet which is so different than PS.

Sometimes, I play also at PKR - this graphic is so amazing!!!

mm.. there are definitely some good aussie MTT players - but MTT players rake bugger-all anyway.. They have to cater to the masses not the elite - even if the top-50 MTT players were all aussie, it wouldn't make a difference.

I understand that they don't do much for us - I just wish we got a small alternative - maybe a free ticket into a regular event or something in lieu of being able to play the VIP freeroll / $$ Added / Etc
