      Hello.. my name is Ashish and i am frm India.
      I am currently playin on the cake network and i have a BR of around 500$ ( it was 700+ 3days back :( :( ) ..

      Allright.. so i am thinking of making a move to another platform ie either Stars or FTP.. coz cake doesnt have much trafic and its hard to find FR tables there

      Stars

      Account not tracked to PS
      Heard VIP system is very cool

      FTP

      Account Tracked to PS
      27% rake back

      I do multitabling like 12 - 14 tables 5/10 c. I play like 5 - 6 hours a day sometimes even more.. I am in a doubt which site would be best suited for my type of play in the long run ..
      Looking for some serious advice

      Thnx
      Ashish

      definitely ftp, not that big of a difference between the sites but being able to take advantage of all the stuff pokerstrategy offers is a huge plus

      IF you play NL10 or beyond than stars is a almost a must.
      Check out my post in this thread Microstakes Rake, I took some time off and done calculations for myself.

      Hope it will help.

      isn't FTP's rake lower for micro stakes? and if your playing NL10, unless your going to put in something like 50k+ hands/month, i think 27% rakeback would be a much better option for you.

      unless you can constantly make at least Goldstar on stars, i'd say stick to FTP, plus that way u can access more articles and video's with your pokerstraqtegy membership

      this imo. stellar program sucks. it only adds like 8% rakeback last time i checked.. i think its like around 12% rakeback for bronze.. i could however be completely wrong about both those figures.. but that's what i remember the results were from my calculations like 4 months ago.. I've payed over $200 rake at stars so far and i haven't seen a $1 of rakeback yet since you need to have alot of FPP before its profitable to cash in..
