Sorry, but the only site I play on at this point is Carbon Poker. I have played there long enough to build trust in their system and support. I mean I know if I win money I can get it by check, mailed diretly to me. I don't need to worry about Moneybookers or e-wallet which if that's what those sites use for withdraws you won't get your money.
Have you ever withdrawn any money you've won? Not being nosey, just curious as to how these sites address withdraws.
He can't play on Pokerstars because he's from the US and we all know the US doesn't allow its citizens to play on Pokerstars.
As for the other sites listed, I'd be very wary of Betonline.. They have an attrocious record and a quick trawl through 2+2 will show lots of concerns about cashing out.
Juicy Stakes is a fairly new site, and one that originally was on the Cake network until they stopped allowing US players. From what I can gather its pretty good, but still in its infancy and its a bit too soon to say they are reliable.
Sportsbook is a huge firm if I recall, and one of hte oldest and most trusted sites on the net. I think any US players should be looking at that site alongside Carbon as their main alternatives.
Another site that does allow US players and is well established is Intertops. The network they use however is god damn awful..

To be honest I have never heard of these sites so Im pretty certain you wont be finding me as a playing partner on any of them. What is of interest to me is the number of such sites that exist and wonder whether there is a natural limit on how many there can be for each one to be certain of any viability in an economic sense.
