Best Online Poker Room?

Postby Snakes Gould » Mon Aug 14, 2006 6:20 am

ive played at pokerstars, party poker, poker world (free bonuses), and poker room.... ive found the most success at party poker and never really played at poker stars for money. the reputation is that the cards are absolutely crazy and reward bad beats etc..so my question is, what are your favorites? easier to make a profit? best experience? best bonuses etc.... i browsed through poker listings and they rate them all, but alot of the time about things i dont care about. im strictly a NL hold'em players. i like sng's more than cash games. i enjoy getting bonuses without having to play 4000 hands as well...

Best Software: Pokerstars - Got accounts with over 10 poker rooms and Stars is by far and away the quickest, easiest, and most reliable.

Most Fish: PartyPoker - Quite a few fish other places, but they don't call PartyPoker "The Aquarium" for nothing. ;-)

Most bonuses/reloads: Absolute. At least a couple of reloads each week. Most poker rooms have become pretty tight about their reloads, but Absolute just keeps right on rolling them out every week.

Im enjoying Full Tilt... theyre offering a 100% signup bonus right now.. and also have a good refer a friend bonus... so if someone does want to sign up pm me so we both could pick up a bonus.

Ive just played on Party Poker and got fed up with it.. mostly because it doenst run on Macs but also the swings on it were just insane... I like Full Tilts set up, even with the corny avatars but you get use to it.

I've played on Stars, Party and Paradise.

As Madision said, Party is full of fish and Stars seems to be the nicest in terms of different types of tournaments etc. I don't play much at Paradise anymore, but go to party to trounce, and Stars proves to be somewhat more difficult but gives me a lot of more options.

I play on Party Poker, basically just because when I decided to start playing online they were offering the best sign up bonus, and I've had success there. If I ever lost my bank roll and had to re-up I'd probably try somewhere else, but I'm not a fan of having a bunch of different accounts, so I just keep playing there. I've never had any problems with it, and, as has been said, there seems to be a lot of fish, especially playing the single-table tournaments.

If you sign up at Full Tilt, though, a friend of mine gets a little richer, so I always try to push people to that site.

I'll echo the others...PartyPoker is the "fish"-iest, without question. My favorite place to play though was always UltimateBet. I like their interface the best out of all of them.

I don't really think being around fish is a bad thing. Just wait for them to make a mistake and break them. It can get frustrating when they hang in and draw out on you, but if you're good and patient enough you should get the best of them most of the time. ;-D That being said my favorite is PartyPoker, probably because that's where I started first. I'm going to have to try out Absolute though if they give out reloads that often.

Full tilt is a solid place to play, but the bonus is a joke.

they make it seem like you can win that bonus in a decent amount of time, but in reality, you can make like a max of $.20 per hand. i tried doing this, and i ended up only getting $20 out of my $200 bonus that was pending, and i played for about 10 hours in all.

The Bonus offers at Party Poker are much better, because you know how many hands you have to play in order to get the bonus.

just some info for all you hopefull bonus apllicants on full tilt
