      HI all;

      I'd like to work on my HU skills, but don't want to affect my SH bankroll on Stars. So, my question is:

      Where should I play except PokerStars?

      I can be tracked everywhere but InterPoker, so everything is acceptable as long as it works with PT3. I think about 0.5/1 as 1st limit, maybe 0.25/0.5, but it depends on rake, tables availability etc. I won't play many hands, because it's only side-project, so reasonable easy-to-clear bonus/bonuses or rakeback is substantial too.

      So, what would you recommend me? And why?

      Thank you very much!

      edit: I forgot to mention I have account on Titan so their first deposit is not available for me anymore..
      edit2: no 1st deposit on Party too as I got my starting capital there.

      Hi opqal99,

      FTP should be good enough for this limit. PP has HU tables as well.

      Why not playing at PokerStars with a second BR? Just create a new DB for your HU game and go for the BRM that PT3 tells you. (So you don't have to look at your real BR.)

      Yeah, I thought about FTP too (does PP have so low HU tables?): rakeback offer attracts me, but I'd like to know how it works on smaller sites like Everest, 888, Ladbrokespoker etc. Any HU possiblity there?

      On the other side, I can use it to bonus whoring too (there're not enough 3/6+ tables on many smaller sites..)

      There's story behind that (you'll get PM soon), but I will consider that when/if I start to play more hands as it will help my VIP status.. with only few short sessions per week it's not so important atm.

      Hmm PP has tables up to 5/10 so I guess they have 0,5/1 as well.
      They guarante 30% rakeback if you make 5000 points per month. Else it should be around 15-20% which is nice as PP should be more fishy than FTP.

      I have no idea about the other sites.

      The community feature has bugs for me so I don't use it very often (have to switch the browser ^^). I try to remember it later the week. :)
