      except for the supernova who makes lot of cash...
      I'm trying to give myself reasons to play on stars...

      I want to move from FTP and I have a problem choosing where to go...

      Rakeback is important part of building a BR....

      dont really think rakeback is important for building br, more like it's imporatant for making a living. PS is WAY better for multitabling I think, no lag, longer thinking time and autotime if you didn't make decision in time. Also I like PS cause you got the pictures so you can easily see who's at another table and so on. I think PS better for buidling br even without rake. And yeah you can play more tables at PS aswell

      For example (made up figures) buy-in @ SnG Stars $2 + $.20 and at FTP buy-in will be $2 + $.25

      Stars is the best software i've used for a poker room, and high volume players do well out of the FPP system.

      And the lack of rake back is equalised by the ability to enter tourneys with FPP's IMO

      Stars is not good for begginers.

      You should stay in full tilt. Once u reach nl100 BSS u can move to stars if you want, becouse there u can catch up some good bonus. If you want to build your bank and improve ur game you should stay in full tilt becouse the rakeback.

      If you wanna move to stars right now, i should recomend you to play mtts, otherway, stay in full tilt.

      Yeah Supernova is worth about 35-40% RB. I earn most my money from the FPPs, since I play SSS which is swingy as hell, and i'm in the middle of a 100k+ hand downswing (over 1000BB below Allin EV).

      If you manage to reach Supernova Elite, you're laughing, it's worth at least 100k on the spot.

      Minor MTT on pokerstars so juicy...somany fish...the only problem is, there is no FPP. (0.25 buy in no fee no FPP)

      While on fult tilt, during the happy hours, so many fish asking to be caught.
      I triple up my BR on Fult tilt happy hours time only 1-2 hours a day.

      I busted my BR on FT...
      Flush Q vs Flush K
      Str8 vs Flush (runner runner)
      Set vs Set (both on flop)

      and some weird hands while playing heads up...

      Well, Kanobi... you probably know that it wasn't much of a BR(M) if you busted it on ~10 hands...

      you sir are correct.
      After two weeks of break even sessions , many bad beats i was sick of the micro limits (played SNG) and decided to abuse the BRM and try to climb up a limit faster.

      2nd time in my life i don't learn the lesson :f_cry:

      Now deposited 50$ into stars and will follow BRM .
      I'll start with 1$ SnG and see where I goes from there....
