Hi Guys and Girls, I have played Cash games at poker stars and fulltilt, which are obviously the most known poker rooms out there. I also played a little on Party Poker which is also very well know site.
So this thread is to open my horizon. Which poker room do u think is the best for a serious cash player?
By serious I don't mean high stakes, but a room with less fish and players that know how to play the game from stakes as small as $0.10-$0.25.

Think it depends a bit on your bankroll. If you want low variance then id say choose a small room, offten have bad players who want to avoid the sharks on the big sites. But with the bigger sites you get to choose your table, and move around a lot more, but belive you will have higher variance. So if you tight for cash go small and just suffer the table selection, if good for wonga stick to the big rooms and choose wisely. What you want from the room is nice offers (bonuses), rakeback and a small rake %.

I'd probably swap Ipoker with cake for your list shokaku . Also add Merge for easier games. I play on the 3 networks and comparing the player pool for the 3, cake def is the most nittiest one on the network. Ipoker has improved somewhat after they changed from dealt to contributed rake method
Merge is still the better network to play at, cant wait until playersonly and sportsbook to move there. It'll be right on time as my exams finish and i can start playing a lot again

Best two sites for serious game - Full Tilt & Pokerstars definately!
If you look for a site thats full of fishes and easy moeny (witch includes also lot more bad beats and s**t play by others) - Party Poker, (as it involves casino and betting site also witch flatters loads of gamblers into poker tables to try out the cashgames).
Don't play on party poker, its the home of the shortstackers! So annoying to play against, as you get no implied odds to play small pairs or suited connectors, basically you have to wait until you get AA or KK and hope they are still going all in. I don't play there anymore. It was the same upto NL50, I don't know if its true at higher stakes. If they raised the min buy in I might play there again as the standard generally is quite poor.
