Just interested in your views really - do u find they are at all of these I poker sites associated with bookies or at somewhere like joker stars, where being the biggest invariably brings in the fish with the pros?

I think new sites are the fishiest. The ones that are offering NDB's or even ones that offer so many dollars for signing up like 888 or sky poker. Poker ace is a very good example of a new site offering NDB's. you can sit down on a cash table and Hoover up everyone's free $10 I'm actually loving that site ATM
I think that pokerstar is definitively a bif fish nest but due to the large amount of player that's easy to understand... but as bullettooth is saying, site that offer big ndb are a nice place to go fishing to. Think that pokerace is an excellent example, so many player claiming their 10$, sitting ata 25nl table and loosing it within an hour... but so few players and table you gotta choose your fishing hour
At the moment I'm finding that Poker Ace is deffo the biggest fish fest I've seen for years. Easiest money ever. You have to put up with more bad beats than usual, but over all you should win easily. Just go all in with a good hand & someone always calls. There's no need to disguise your hand at all.
Microgaming is the next fishiest network I play on, but only at 6 max. You get the grinders on 9 Max. Its likely to lose alot of players when Ladbrokes switch to iPoker network though.
iPoker is next fishiest IMO. But only if you play on a top tier site. All the smaller iPoker sites have their player pools seperate from the bigger sites. The smaller sites give rakeback & attract grinders. The bigger sites are mostly bookmakers & bring in lots of fish that deposit. I have noticed that speed poker is seperate from the segragation. Its the same player pools on all ipoker sites. iPoker rips you of badly though if you play micros & play on tables in a different currency than your account. They steal 1 & 2 cents at a time every time you buy in, top up or leave the table. So stick to same currency tables if playing 1/2c & 5/10c
I used to find Party Poker about as fishy as iPoker but I don't play there since they seperated the players by win or lose rate. It really doesn't pay to win at Party Poker anymore. I hear 888 is fishy, but its about the only place I haven't played.
PKR is pretty fishy but the games are so sloooooooow. So if you like waiting play at PKR.
full tilt is getting fishy lately. Probably because of all the NDB its giving away, but it used to be along with Poker Stars probably the hardest to win on. The big sites seem to attrack all the grinders. The fish are there but spread alot thinner. You can still win but its deffo harder. The advantage is the amount of games going on with Poker Stars. There's just so many players.

Down in the meadow in a little bitty pool Swam three little fishies And a mama fishie too "Swim," said the mama fishie, "Swim if you can." And they swam and they swam all over the dam
Boop boop diten datem whatem choo Boop boop diten datem whatem choo Boop boop diten datem whatem choo And they swam and they swam right over the dam
"Stop!" cried the mama fish, "Or you will get lost." But the three little fishies didn’t want to be bossed The three little fishies went off on a spree, And they swam and they swam right out to the sea
Boop boop diten datem Whatem choo Boop boop diten datem whatem choo Boop boop diten datem whatem choo And they swam and they swam And they got lost in the sea
"Help!" cried the fishies, "Look at the whale." And quick as they could, They turned on their tails And back to the itty bitty pool they swam And they swam and they swam Back over the dam
Boop boop diten datem whatem choo Boop boop diten datem whatem choo Boop boop diten datem whatem choo And they swam and they swam Right over the dam
Boop boop diten datem whatem choo And they swam and they swam right over the dam

I'm actually believing they're all on CARBON poker with the biggest share of them being dumbazz Americans. They're kids playing any hand that hits the table. I'm so sick of these players at CARBON beating my QQ by making crazy bets pre-flop with a 10,6. I shutdown last night after that hand. I had enough!
Don't take me wrong! I can take a bad beat, I can take getting beat by a better hand, but there's players at CARBON (98% U.S.) that are pure donks. I just wish I could get back on sites like FullTilt or PokerStars because you've not dealt with the true donkfest, badbeat bunch until you spend some time on CARBON POKER.
I didn´t knew that partyoker seperate their players by win rates. I don´t play there, I play almost only at pokerstars. But thanls for all the good info about the other sites. Sounds like you have a lot of experience. GOOD luck to you all. When you not are playing in the same toernament as me.
