      Hello! Is Titan poker a good site for a SnG-player playing between 5-10$ games? How is their reward system for a micro-stakes player and how high is the rake on SnG's? Are the players any good? Is it easy to always have 9-12 tables open? (I know they don't have resizable tables as default :f_confused: )

      How is Titan compared to Pokerstars or Full tilt.

      The questions are many so I would appreciate if someone playing SnG's at Titan would enlighten me. :]

      At those limits you have enough traffic, for higher stakes you have to play at stars or tilt though. Rake is 10%. If you have first deposit bonus to clear, you get something like 40% back. If you don't have bonus, you should play on Betfred/Bet365/Mansion Poker.

      Once you reach 20$ the traffic becomes a major problem. So if you think you'll do this in the near future the iPoker network is not such a great choice (unless you're only playing in the peak hours).

      What about the SNG structure? I read somewhere it was something like this:

      Level Blinds Antes Minutes
      1 10/20 - 9
      2 20/40 - 9
      3 30/60 - 9
      4 50/100 - 9
      5 100/200 - 9
      6 150/300 - 9
      7 200/400 - 9
      8 300/600 - 9
      9 400/800 - 9
      10 500/1,000 - 9
      11 750/1,500 - 9
      12 1,000/2,000 - 9


      If you compare to PS and FT its not the best you have, Titan SNG are faster and that can hurt solid poker. Can you confirm this?

      I'm also considering opening an account on Titan so I'm glad someone touched the subject already!

      The structure is correct, but blinds change every 7 minutes, and every 4 minutes on turbo SnGs.

      Software is slow/laggy
      Player pool is thin meaning you can only play in peek times.
      rewards are bad unless you are a high volume/high stakes player.

      The only good thing is the players are super bad

      It also takes FOREVER to clear any bonuses unless you are a high stakes player. I have a $100 bonus but i need 12k points.... for me, thats impossible since i only play $1 SNG's there.

      Titan is so soft its untrue imo and there isnt a big difference from the $5.50. Only ever 1 reg in 6max $11 games the rest crazy maniacs im loving it.volume is bad though.aggresive brm all the way :)
