      FT has bad blind structure imo

      I'm used to playing on Ipoker though

      I recomend for begginers : matrix on full tilt, or double ups on stars

      Hi PidKoker,

      I hate FT's SnG's, as viewer88 said, the blind strusture is terrible.

      @ AndySK: Ipoker has the best blind structure by far imo, and is 2nd to none for SnG's.

      Regards,
      stiev

      I actually like FT and their blind structure quite a bit and don't think much of the iPoker's one. It is just a matter of getting used to I guess.

      The low limit SNGs are beatable anywhere so it's just a matter of your preference..

      played at Ipoker like 600sng ... and i must say that i dont like blind structure there...

      i realy enoj FT blind structure for sng and mtt turnaments... their are slower but that is what i like ...

      even if phil ivey told me that at ipoker are best blind structure i will not like it ...coz it is my own opinion and i dont like jump from 100-200 to 150-300 or even 200 400...

      and question if it is beatable? i think every poker game can be beaten but imagine if there is no 10% rake .. it will by so wonderfull

      for example: playing 33$ sng with roi of 9%? without rake it is 19% ... or if they make rake like 3% it will be still nice of ROI of 16%

      and for high stakes sng 5000+200$? .. i mean it can be like 5000+25$ and you can + to your profit 150$ ... just my ide sorry to spaming thread

      hmm still love FT coz 0.27% rakeback is my archangel :D

      The blind levels aren't really slow the tourney takes pretty much the same time to finish as on any other site.. It's just that the jumps between the levels are not so big. Like the 200 to 400 jump when you have say comfortable 8 BB and then suddenly you only have 4 BB and are UTG or something..
      On Full Tilt the blinds increase every 3 minutes by a little bit and that is what I like about it. I guess Miskokvo thinks the same...

      I like those jumps, but I've never played on another site.
      The bigger the jumps, the bigger your edge for adapting to the new blindlevel. Ipoker allows you to constantly amp up your agression.

      I think any decent player will have a bigger roi on ipoker than any other site. Due to the blind structure.

      I thought the iPoker blind structure was the same as Party's and as most of the poker sites. But ok, maybe when I grow tired of Full tilt I'll give iPoker a try. There's still my tracked Mansion account I never played on..

      Yes it is, which is why I don't play there now myself. Its impossible to play higher stakes in volume.

      Theres nothing wrong with it if you play $22's and below imo.
