      hi..just dont go as a beginner to a party poker...its hell hard there on SnG..for one dollar holdem they have only turbos and i really hate not briliant player but these turbos are so much about AA,Ak,AQ, KK so many times busted on the river with rubbish limp players...the game there is so quick that you dont have time to profit from your experience edge and get beaten often from donkeys a fish players..
      so as a SnG player do not sign to PartyPoker and dont repeat my mistake!!

      I have played at stars and full tilt. In my opinion, full tilt is a great site to play sng on, you can choose many different formats, as in turbo or normal, many different numbers of people (9 through to 180) and there are a serious number of people who haven't got a clue what they're doing. Good luck.

      FTP + rake + bonus = best for small BR

      I agree. Even though I think the Party's 1$ SNGs are beatable you would probably be better off somewhere else..
      I would either go for one of the smaller pokerrooms like something on the Ongame network with loads of fishes or for Full Tilt with their awesome rakeback.

      Well, as was said, FTP may be the best, because you get direct rakeback.

      If you play micro limits on Stars, your effective rakeback is close to 0% in the beginning, but i'm not sure about the other rooms. It seems that Stars & FTP & iPoker have all same rake on them ($1+0.2), so you will pay only 1+0.146 on FTP what's the best offer probably.

      I wouldnt be scared about differences in skills of average player between different rooms at this stage, so this aspect doesn't matter IMO.

      :spade: Good luck at the tables! :spade:
