      Hello guys!

      After 2 years of NL SH (and a little FR) i decided to try SnGs.

      But i don't know what's the best for the start:

      Full Tilt Poker $2 ? (i have rakeback)
      OR
      PokerStars $3? (i have only BronzeStar level)
      OR
      Ongame network 3$? (the FD bonus = 63% rakeback!!!)
      OR
      Double or Nothing on PokerStars ?
      (maybe DoN on Cake network with FD bonus and RB?)

      And turbo or normal?


      Thank you in advance for the help!

      mh i wouldn´t think about rakeback too early.
      what´s the rake at these 3 sites?

      i haven´t played those stakes but the opponents should be really bad everywhere. my approach (long time ago) was to play pokerstars 6$sngs (very small rake) till i got the bankroll for playing 11$-22$ sngs at ongame -> clearing bonuses (at this time i was pretty confident about my game already) and after that i looked for a site where i wanted to stay playing 22-55s (24s-60s in my case: full tilt).
      so long story short: right now i would play the games with the lowest rake if i were you. probably not at FT though if you have the BR for 3$ games :) .
      as mentioned above: don´t care about rakeback too early. don´t masstable micro buy in sngs. improve your game and move up the stakes

      FTP : 2$+0.25$
      Stars : 3$+0.4$
