      Stars and Full Tilt (assuming they change nothing when they reboot it) have the lowest rake for FL on the internet

      The remainder of the sites aren't reallt in the picture as far as rake goes.

      If they chose to change nothing about FT then FT would be better Rakeback for low volume players as it's 27% flat plus Iron Man whereas at Stars you need to be around PLatinum Star to get that kind of return.

      Traffic-wise Stars is miles ahead of everyone. The only other sites with FL action will probably be FT and Party although the odd game still goes on Ongame, 888, Merge etc

      Software-wise, again, Full Tilt probably has the best software

      Thanks boomer

      i was actually confused with rake structure

      when i saw WH site it shows

      $0.02 for each $0.50 in the Pot with .40 cap for .5/1 which works out 4% as compare 4.5 % on stars with same cap of .40 so isnt star rake is higher by 10% or i am missing something ?

      the easiest way to figure out what you pay in rake is to actualyl try it yourself. play 2-3k hands on the site and check the rake (BB/100) in HEM/PT

      Yes. Stars is brilliant and pretty much bug-free. But, Full Tilt was a piece of art. It even sounded smooth. For me, such things are important. I have tried a number of times to play HU on iPoker sites. After 5-10 minutes I become dizzy and have to think both twice and thrice about wether I'm on the button or not. It's like having a stroboscope in your face. Six-max is barely bearable.

      And oh, boy, do I miss my FT avatar? (Hint: Milk Packages :D )
