      I advise you start with hu sngs rather than hu cash because rake is really too high for playing hu cash below about nl50. For hu sngs Id recomend stars, their first deposit bonus clears really fast and you can make three small deposits rather than having to deposit 600 in one go to get the full thing. the games also run all day and are very fishy in the lower limits (much fishier than low limit fullring sngs Id say).

      Hi elesarrrr,

      Welcome to our community!

      I'm guessing you passed the quiz and would like to know in which room should you request the free $50?

      I'm sure the others will help you decide but meanwhile you can take a look at our Poker Room boards and read what your fellow community members have to say. :)

      Good luck and keep us posted

      what i wanted to say, is that not all site have micro Nlhu tables, so u should first ask which sites has them.

      first OP should tell us a little more info.

      Like what limits he wants to play. As Jan217 already said, anything under NL50 is not worth it realy because of high rake. Also he could say what traficc he wants. Euro sites are sure fishier, but traffic is slow. Stars and Full Tilt have most traffic, but there are more regs (but you can still find fishes).

      edit...sorry, I posted before I read your reply. :D

      NL50HU can be super proftiable if you're playiung the right player. But even if you;'re playing a bad player it can be hard to make money because of the ridiculous rake.

      If for example you have a really bad player who limps every button and doesnt go crazy post flop the rake will almost definitely beat the game, similarily if you have a guy who never 3bets or always folds to you're raises/3bets then it will be super tough to make it profitable.

      If however you have a guy who is splashing around playing gigantic pots and just generally going super crazy then yes it can be profitable. And as you can imagine at 50nl there are plenty of these guys :D

      To summarise, NL50 is beatable but you gotta table select hard :)

      As far as rooms go, I would stick to "the big two" just because traffic is higher and the rake is a little less than other sites such as party/ipoker.
