      Do you guys play on small sites or pokerstars mostly?

      I wonder if its worth playing on small sites because they are supposed to have most fish, but the biggest winners are on pokerstars.. from sites like sharkscope..
      On top of this, the small sites aren't as safe and software is worse..

      Considering everything, are small sites/networks worth it? Do you guys play on small sites?

      What do you consider as small? In compassion to Poker Stars all sites are small :)

      Personally I play on lots of small networks - why ? Firstly, there's generally weaker players than you find on Pokerstars, especially if the network has a sportsbook or casino and secondly for the small field MTTs with huge overlays :)

      I'm also not sure I'd agree with the statement about safety and software, most 'small' networks out there (I'm assuming you're referred to the likes of 888, everest, ongame, entraction etc) have been running incident free* for years and the software's not that bad to be fair, certainly not enough to turn me off playing there.

      *open to correction on that one :)

      Are you actually asking if anyone is playing anywhere but PokerStars? The answer is quite obvious, don't you think?

      I play on pacific and microgaming to have some more games, thing is you will find here still big fishes now and then because of the gambling related companies behind it.

      More regs on smaller sites,even at low stakes. Play both depending on BR and bonuses etc.
