      Ive recently cleared my 100% match bonus at Full Tilt and I'm looking to move on to another site. Stupidly I did not subscribe to rakeback or anything. I'm looking for another site and I can't decide between PokerStars and Titan. I'm playing SSS so I'm looking for a site with many players so i can tablehop easily. I was thinking of joing pokerstars but they don't do rakeback, and Titan do but I heard they got low traffic? Can anyone give me some advice?
      Also, I've heard pokerstars do VPP points, what does that mean, is this similar to rakeback?

      Thanks

      Pokerstars >>>> Titan

      in fact, ppl say

      anything >>>>> Titan

      Titan has
      - horrible popup
      - no resizable tables
      - no auto-rebuy
      - traffic is small compared to Stars
      - Its been buggy sometimes
      - tables timeout without you noticing
      - table doesnt always popup automatically
      - no post-next-blind option
      - no sitout-next-blind option
      - more stuff I can't remember atm

      pokerstars >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> x1000000 titan

      and pokerstars fpp points is all the rakeback you will get, when you get to higher limits then you can get a ton of them and buy good bonuses.

      I too am a fan of stars :) .. Thebrood has a pretty nice list!!

      For SSS the softwares great for multitabling, tons of players etc!

      good luck there!

      Thanks for all the replies! Definately not going to Titan now lol, but now im considering partypoker and pokerstars. pokerstars has less SSS-ers however partypoker has the 100% match bonus up to $500 whereas pokerstars' bonus is up to $50..

      Hello unlogik112,

      I think PokerStars, Mansion Poker (same network as Titan - but with very nice bonus system) or PartyPoker are possible options.

      In terms of multitabling - I have no problems playing 12+ tables on Mansion or PokerStars and both have a similar kind of bonus scheme. While VIP systems aren't called rakeback - they function similarly. You essentially collect points which you can later on exchange for cash or other things. At the highest levels these can be equal to 60-80% rakeback - on the lower levels they are usually equal to 10-30%.

      Best regards
      SoyCD

      The Mansion "rb" is a lot higher than pokerstars' rb though. On Stars you get 10-20% depends how much you rake, 28% after you have raked 20k. On the other hand, Stars has smaller rake to begin with, so the worse rakeback doesn't really hurt. Pokerstars software is a lot better for multitabling.

      thanks for all the replies!

      ive decided to go for partypoker because of the 100% match bonus which pokerstars doesn't offer.
