i really like the look of PKR and i'm hearing a lot of good stuff about the site. my problem is do i take the bankroll bonus offered here with the mob or do i just join up via PKR? Here you get the Free Deposit of £25.00 but then in order to get your 100% sign up bonus you would have to deposit a MINIMUM of £250.00. If i sign up direct with PKR you get the 100% for any deposit minimum £10.00 plus 6 free tickets for cashing freerolls AND 1500 PKR points. I can see that if you only want to deposit £25.00 you might as well take the FREE Deposit it's the extras i'm concerned with - ie at Tilt because i only play tourneys and Sngs it's taken me 2 months to amass 1000 FTPs so getting 1500 PKR points from the get go is not something i'd pass up easily.
Any assistance with my decision would be most welcome.
Speedy replies please as i want to join one way or another yesterday.
i registered to that site in monday i dont know nothing yet , but i think after the registration you will get three ticket one for a 5$ tourney and two for 10$ tourny, i think. and if you deposit some money you will get100% deposit bonus you have to eran points and than you will get the bonus.

I too only play SNG's and MTT's so I know your problem with collecting points.
I think you shoul be sure that those 1500 PKR points will counts as a "bonusclearout", because to be honest unless I had that written I don't think it will.
Aside from that if you only play SNG and MTT I wouldn't recommend PKR. Sure there is a lot of fish also in both SNG and MTT, but people play very slow, because of all the extra "funny" features. That means fewer hands get dealt at each level and it is more difficult to take advantage of all the loose donks by waiting for good cards. It is also very difficult to play more than one tourney or SNG at a time.
On the other hand I think for Cashgame PKR must be a Mekka!
If I were you I would play at Full Tilt, Pokerstars and on an Ipokerskin. They are to me the best providers of tournaments.
Wow super speedy replies.Thank You all. cheers umarplus i've just signed up for the rakeback - an excellent idea. MasterY -I am going to stick with Full Tilt for tourneys & Sngs because there is just so much choice but i'm kinds sick of the maniac approach to all games so any better sites i'd be pleased to hear. I've tried Titan but hate it - it's dull dull dull flat as a pancake - so bad i can feel myself nodding off at the tables.Cash games i'm trying but i can't say as i'm enjoying thus far i much prefer the grind of longer play.What is Ipokerskin? never heard of that one B4. the 1500 points i'll recheck the small print but thus far it looks kosher. Phosphate22 - perhaps see you there? Thanks again all -

Ipokerskin? I am referring to any place attached to the Ipoker network. Since you have tried Titan, which is an Ipokerskin and didn't like it I guess there is no point in saying anymore
I haven't tried it myself but perhaps signing up for the microgaming network (includes ladbrokes) would be nice. I have read they has this "Rounders tournament".
It works this way: You sign-up first for Rounders Round 1 (5,50 dollars) If you finish top 2 you will progress to the next round. There are five rounds in total and top four at round five is paid. (The winner gets 3000 dollars). If you like singletable SNG's that is definitly something to consider.
