      Im currently playing at partypoker as thats where i got my starting capital but the traffic is poor and often the tables seem tight compared to other platforms (roughly based on %VPIP) , so which site would be best to move to for FLSH .50/1+ ?

      I thinking the best would be either stars or full tilt, pros and cons of both?

      any info appriciated :)

      come to Stars. I am still hanging out at those limit it is life line when loose upstages...
      FullTilt even Traffic is higher then other pokerrooms but so many tight players even for .5-1 limit. In Stars lots of Fishes but some sharks and bombs too..

      Fulltilt or Stars as rake is capped at sane level (for SH about 2.4BB/100).

      A lot of tight players at FTP 0.5/1 comparing to Stars? Darn, Stars must be a promised land then... :f_love:

      so the fishyness of stars overcomes rakeback at FTP? Also, do stars still have the 100% $600 FD bonus ?

      does ipoker comeinto the equation at all?

      Hi Joshquan,

      here you find all the sites we have:

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/online-poker-rooms/

      iPoker is pretty fishy too but the rake is vey high. If you have no PokerStars account yet I think that is one of the best choices you can make.
      I like PartyPoker more but I can't be tracked at PokerStars so with tracking I think I would prefer PokerStars as well (and even may play both sites next year).

      And understatement of the year award goes to.... Berkstajger!!!

      Assuming this is correct (and it confirms all I've heard): Stars > FTP > daylight.

      According to this, yes!

      No. Not unless you enjoy sado masochism, in which case... not even then.

      Hmmm.. define fishy. Only two tables at $.25/$.50 SH with more than 40% players to the flop in peak times, and those with a waiting list of four 25/21/38/2.2 TAG regs on each?! :f_eek:

      On Friday/Saturday nights (Western Euro time) you can find occassional good tables at $.50/$1 with two loose/passives and three other reg TAGs - this is the iPoker FL SH low limit promised land.

      As an example, at the $.50/$1 SH tables Saturday night I had a great table in position on two loose passives (54/15/50/1.3 types) - easily the softest table on this limit at this peak fishing time Saturday - and repeatedly had my iso raises 3bet by one of the three reg TAGs sitting behind me. Relentless.

      Ofc, these TAGs aren't leak proof and do make errors but they play mostly solid TAG style, and to honest, hard working (and horribly leaky) PS.com TAGs they make table selection a freaking nightmare!

      STAY AWAY. Just one confused fish's opinion. :f_confused:

      I think 6 months ago it was true, but every TAG and his dog plays the low limits there now. :f_mad:

      Well... $2/4SH has 4BB/100 rake... so if you can beat it, be my guest... got 50% rakeback on iPoker and decided no to play there...
