      Does anyone know of any sites that have decent micro fixed limit hold'em traffic where I can earn PS points?

      I currently play at 888 regularly but I can't earn PS points there anymore. I have tracked 770 and Titan accounts but I find it difficult to find good games there with any regularity. I am also tracked at PKR but there are no fixed limit games there.

      Thanks but PokerStars is a no-go for me anyway because I created an account there about 5 years ago before I knew anything about affiliate bonuses.

      @HollyMichelle: Thanks I'll check it out :)

      Unless you're playing nanostakes, play on Stars, and what you earn by not paying a shitload of rake like on any other site, you can use that 'saved' rake to buy a subscription for PS.

      Let's say that you play .25/.5 and pay 3BB/100 rake on Stars, while 4BB/100 on Party. (The numbers are not accurate at all, look them up in your HEM or online or ask around, haven't played those stakes in ages - however the rake difference is probably close to accurate.) If you play say 15k hands/month, this way you "win" 1BB/100 just by not raking it, which is 150BB/month(!!!) = $75. Just go ahead and buy a subscription for gold status, and you'll get all the material without paying way way way more in rake than what you could for the status.

      Eh, can't be bothered :f_biggrin:

      It's definitely a good point. Net rake paid is something that everyone should be looking into when they choose a poker room.
