      Hi everyone,

      I am thinking to start playing on Everest, can someone who played there and also on PokerStars or PartyPoker tell me how strong the opponents are on Everest compared to those on Pokerstars or Party ?

      I am thinking of playing NL10 and NL25 ShortHanded .. Any thought welcome :-)

      Thank you

      Nl25SH everest probably equals nl5 on stars.

      But software is specially designed to induce tilt, imo worse than pacific.

      the more fish you have, the more bad beats you'll expect to get.

      Yea, i know that and it's ok with me, i was saying that software is tilt inducing (graphics, bet slider etc) not their RNG. :)

      Well boys, a bit of trut you certainly had .. I try to find loose tables and there in fact are some :-) I played a while on NL10 yesterday and had one really unbelievable hand ..

      I raised the button with KQ, small blind and big blind with VPIP around 65 (wow) both called and the flop comes Kh Qh 5s, small blind bets pot and big blind calls, I was not folding as I thought I was far far ahaed of their ranges so I pushed all in for maximum protection and they both called and showed KJo .. So a nice 95,35% triple up :)

      I am very amazed by the numbers of fish at the low limit table ....

      (My BRM so far allows me only very low limit but I plan on moving up very shortly if my winning rate stays)

      Easier than FT and PS imo.

      I just started playing on Everest at the 10 cent NL tables, and sofar it seems to be about 10% decent players and ~40% fish. And some of them being epic fishes who puch all-in with 72o and the like.

      I'm not sure why, but the player level at Everest seems to be much lower at these limits than at Pacific sofar.

      Btw. I made me Everest account years ago, but somehow I'm not able to collect Strategy Points with it. Does anybody know if there's a workaround for that for existing accounts?
