      Hello all.

      Hope you can help me with my decision. I'd like to play DoN tournaments for a while and build up my bankroll on them. The only account I have tracked via PokerStrategy is at PartyPoker. But there are DoN tournaments only for $5+1 (20% rake!!) and $10+1 - I don't have a bankroll for those yet. I may play them at some other poker rooms, but for the first this is then not tracked by PS and therefore I am loosing my status, and for the second now I'd like to play something about $3+0.30 - but found only turbos.

      So I decided to register to some new poker room. I am looking for

      ** DoN tournaments at multiple buy-ins
      ** standard (like 7-10 minutes level) - I may try turbos too, but want to have standards at least available
      ** max. 10% rake (the lower the better :) )


      I've heard, that maybe PokerStars may suit my conditions well. But I can not check that without registering probably. So, if anybody is playing at PokerStars, may you help me and briefly list the available DoN tournament structure there? And of course suggest any other site you know.

      Something like this:

      DoN at PartyPoker (10 players)
      $5+1, 1500 starting chips, standard (10min) and speed (5min)
      $10+1, 1500 starting chips, standard and speed

      Many thanks!

      DoNs at TitanPoker (10 player)

      Only turbo variants (4 minutes level), 1500 starting chips
      $1+0,20 (20% rake!!)
      $2+0,40 (20% rake!!)
      $5+0,50
      $10+1
      $20+2
      $30+3
      $50+5
      $100+9
      $200+15

      DoNs at Titan are not what I am looking for. They have only turbo variants and rake 10% from $5+0,50.
      Anyway, thanks for reply :)

      Well, not sure about the worst players :tongue:
      But I know the tournaments on Party.
      Unfortunately I don't have bankroll big enough to play $10+1 now.

      Pokerstars offers:
      1 + 0.15 standard (10 minutes blind levels)
      1 + 0.10 turbo (5 minutes)
      5 + 0.40 standard
      5 + 0.20 turbo
      10 + 0.80 standard
      10 + 0.40 turbo

      Only 4 % fee on 5 minutes blinds seems ok to me (for $5 buy-ins or higher).
      Good luck with whatever you choose.

      Thanks a lot. The rakes seem to be very good there :)
      But does it mean, there are no levels between $1 and $5?
      And do they have also the higher buy-ins for DoNs?

      Anyway, I think it may be a good choice once I get to $5 buy-in level.
      Very appreciated!

      Yes, unfortunately there are only regular sng's with $3 buy-in.

      Yes, $20, $50 and $100, regular always with 8 % fee and turbos with 4 %.
