      Hey guys I was wondering which poker rooms are better I mean in terms of people. I am already registered in pokerstars so unfortunately I can not get strategy points and also in party poker. I just registered on 888 that just ended the deal with pokerstrategy (very bad luck). What about Poker770 William Hill, Everest Poker, Betfair Poker, PKR (The unique 3D poker room) ,Poker Heaven, Mansion Poker?
      I usually play NL5-10 FULL RING, regular. thanks

      I think it depends on yourself really, I personally like 770, they offer some good promotions and Poker Strategy have a $10k freeroll once every few months. But a lot of people are quite negative about it and have complaints.

      I couldn't have said it better myself.

      One consideration a lot of people over look is how easy it is to get money in and out of a room.

      Be sure to check out a rooms various options, and make sure that they are available and legal in your jurisdiction BEFORE you sign up.

      Good Luck!

      I was asking in terms of rooms and people I play especially full ring, and if I start a new poker room I think I am not playing more than NL5, maybe a table NL10.. how many full ring rooms has 770? thanks :) ))

      Poker 770 has a lot of FR NL4 and NL10 tables but problem with iPoker is that their tables are infested with nits and shortstacker. I would suggest you Betfiar, they don't have that much NL4 FR tables like poker 770 (usually in peak hours around 10), but they have a lot of NL10 FR tables so you can combine limits.

      Try WPT poker.
      Everest Poker software suck.
      Ipoker network is bunch of nits and highest rake.
      PKR - forget about multitabling and HUDs.

      Only Pokerstars and Party Poker network have decent MTTs and traffic in CG.

      Hi,

      I would mirror Ramadas suggestion and try WPT Poker.

      They are second in the market when it comes to traffic so will have the most games available.

      They also have very easy to use software.

      When you combine this with their VIP system and $500 first deposit bonus they are a clear favourite :)

      Let me know what you think

      Although WPT software is intuitive and nice, they have lagging problems in peak hours. During night with lower traffic is not so bad. So this is core server/client architecture problem and seems software is victim of its success. I am thinking of moving to PokerStars - there I don't have to fight with software in addition to other players.

      Hi Ramadas,

      Do you know of anyone else experiencing this issue?

      I have played at PartyPoker (same network) and I am yet to experience any lag etc.

      I believe the PartyPoker client is a bit laggy on older computers. I remember on my old laptop (3/4 years old) it struggled at times but when I got my new i7 it seemed to run smooth. I think the client is just bulky if you get me?

      I have high-end I5 and it is not old... 3d software/games running smoothly, why 2d should not?

      Not sure then, I haven't played the party client in a while, and I wouldn't say its instantaneous responsive, but I wouldn't say it lags for me ?(
