      Why have you chosen the pokerroom you play in?

      I've played in Pacific poker, Pokerstars, Partypoker, and soon Full tilt poker. I have to say I a rather prefer Full tilt poker for the following reasons.

      1) Not linked to a casino, no chance in wasting a bankroll on roulette.
      2) A lot of traffic.
      3) A huge first deposit bonus.
      4) RAKEBACK!
      5) Matrix SnG's.

      So why do you play at the room you play on?

      Pokerstars - Purely because of the traffic!

      I have opened a full tilt account though so i can track it here so will probably end up moving there soon for the rakeback :)

      Fulltilt because:
      - good software
      - good update and no delay about status table(at other site like iPoker or party poker, you see table have 9/10 player but when you click - it is full)
      - good traffic
      - Poker Academy, the store is open now and 200 point worth 1$, it is not hard to get Academy point with micro stake (I have 4k point Academy while have only 800 full tilt points)
      - no pop up (like titan) or stupid advertisement (but support is too bad with email only)
      - I still have 100% 1st deposit bonus, but I think I will continue play there after clearing the bonus

      Hey chuongdk,

      You mean Academy Points can be converted into cash? I haven't heard anything about that or maybe I missed something?

      Regards,

      Actually I would like to play on stars(i cant be tracked there), but i have to be gratefull for Pokerstrategy and thank them for my starting capital which keeps slowly but still growing.

      Ill write what i dont like where i play(FT):
      -cash table lobby (so annoing that you cant filter it and it keeps moving all the time)
      -traffic (well, atleast compared to stars MTSNG's)
