      Hey guys, im looking to deposit on a secondary Poker Room, i currently play on Pokerstars. Thinking about Netbet or Party Poker, does anyone have any opinion or suggestions here? Cant be Fulltilt cause my main reason is to play on a tracked site, and i cant be tracked on Fulltilt or Pokerstars (old accounts).

      Partypoker and Unibet don't allow HUD. I think traffic on partypoker and ipoker is similar at micros. Rake is higher on ipoker. Software is better at PP imo. I don't know much about Unibet but apparently games there are very soft.

      Thanks itseasy! I may like the idea of not using a HUD on my secondary account. I could still track my progress/hands/stats on PT4 right? Or is that forbidden as well?
      This being the internet i also fear that people just use it illegally somehow, putting those who plays by the rules at disadvantage.

      Im waiting a response from Unibet, i think their bonuses and promotions does not apply to my country (Brazil), in which case it'll be off the list.

      I am not sure if you will be able to track progress because you won't be able to store hand history locally but I don't know if this is true only for Unibet or Partypoker aswell. I think people can still use HUD on PP for now but from what I gathered this won't be possible for too long.

      Hopefully someone else can say more but support here is very poor.

      Partypoker has good professional software that works nice. I do think the traffic is a little better than iPoker. There is some sidekickstyle quests that gives some easy money - like win a hand at showdown with first AA as holcards down to 22. It takes some volume to make the last ones there but you'll get there. At least you could use HUD last time I played ther a few days ago.

      Netbet has poor software and ugly skins. At daytime there's almost no traffic at all. You can use HUD.

      Unibet is more casino-style. "Funny" graphics, you can switch avatar and name at will which make it impossible to learn about the other players. You can't use a HUD and even if you could it would be useless. I don't like it. The casino-likeness gives the feeling that you constatnly are tricked. And because you can't save handhistory you couldn't check if you believe that you are tricked in any way.

      Full Tilt ain't that bad either.

      Thanks you both! Your opinions matter a lot!
      I might go for Party Poker, waiting for their costumer support answer about my bonuses, i can already say that their costumer support is a little slower than Pokerstars's. :f_biggrin:
