      Considering the recent developments regarding stars & FT, I wanted to ask if there are any good platforms for FL?

      Thanks.
      Then Party Poker is your only real option, if you want good traffic and juicy tables...imo.
      Altough, I heard something about Carbon poker being good at FL but need to check that out...

      Carbon was sometimes good during US evenings but I think this would have changed the last couple of days. Party is the 3rd best option for FL and are offering a nice bonus right know. Maybe with the recent developments ipoker may gain back a good FL crowed but I don´t think so with such shitty software.
      Even after the banning of US players, PS and FT are still the best.

      I don't want to leave stars. Especially when I had no problems with their software whatsoever (unlike some other card rooms...). PS is still the best, but is it actually safe? I'm not one of those panicking people but cash is king. and these guys are running out of it. Is switching to party a -ev compared to keeping the roll at Stars?..
      But I'm a bit nervous about keeping my roll there. I don't think that US government can make something as stupid as bankrupting the biggest US poker room, but then you never know. They might send troops to Isle of Man to protect American pokers interests (like they did with Iraq and oil :s_evil: ).
      I guess I might transfer a good chunk of my roll to Party, but I'm not sure yet.

      Does anyone actually play FL on Party? I've heard the rake is pretty high for micros but is it ok for 0.5/1 or $1/2?

      And how difficult is it to clear their depositor's bonus? Only 120 days to clear it... =(

      Downfall, have you cashed your roll out? or at least some of it?

      Does anyone have any £ or euro accounts? I wanted to get one but once again, I don't think I'll get enough traffic on them =(

      Dont know about Stars, but FT is getting so fishless at the time. All the tables, at limit I'm playing (.25/.5) , are 30-37% VPIP and only reggs are sitting there... Maybe at peak hours it gets better, but right now, it sucks.
      On the other hand, Party is imo getting better. And their new reload bonuses make them my 1st choice for this time untill we see what happens to our poker giants.

      How many FR tables for 0.5/1 and 1/2 are there on party on average?

      I've had a look at party FL and there are hardly any tables of SH. No FR tables.
      I guess I'll just have to take a break from poker for a few weeks...

      Maybe you were looking at wrong time.
      Right now, there are ~14 0.5/1 SH and ~10 1/2$ SH tables running(only few FR tables at both), i think that's decent number, unless you're FR player only.

      If you were playing on Stars stay there. But if you were playing on FT withdraw the money because the tables are almost empty. Party and Ipoker have now better traffic than Fulltilt.

      Not so sure about Fulltilt but the money on Stars are 100% safe.

      My experience on FT has been a higher concentration of loose passive players (.25/.50 - .50/1 SH/FR) but definitely much fewer tables running (and at least one US resident flipping the Feds the bird and playing angry).
