      Hello FL Players,
      A mount ago i started to play FL and i am really keen on about it. Unfotrunately till now i was playing in poker room which is not tracked at Poker Strategy.com. and respectively i don't earn SP. Because i would like to have access to more materials i decided to change poker room that i am playing. And the question is: Where to move my bankroll ($100 - $150)? I have a few options only and they are:
      - Full Tilt
      - Unibet
      - 888
      I would ask you for your opinions and expirience at this rooms (mainly for Fixed limit of course). I am intrested about rake back %, traffic at this rooms, opponetnts level and anything else, which could be useful.
      Thank you in advance!

      FT, unibet is a microroom at a network with suggestive name, at such sites u can hardly find any FL players, You might also try some other skins of ipoker, but the sw suxx and villains suck even worse

      + 1 for FTP

      I can't speak for Unibet. 888.com has mega soft games, but only limited table numbers which really only operate during Euro peak times (otherwise often no games available) and the FDB is a mother to clear until you're playing $2/$4 - $3/6.

      Full tilt offers rakeback, there are soft games around and they have a relatively clearable first deposit bonus which clears in $20 increments (unlike 888.com).

      Maybe he is not aware of BRM. And yes, I'll probably drop few limits :D

      anyway, this reminds me another nice table from yesterday's session:



      wanna JOIN TABLE?? sure! :D

      Hello again,
      Thank you all for the suggestions, I choose to deposit at Poker Heaven at the beginig of May and now I am very satisfied with this. The reasons:
      -30% montly rakeback (equal to 220 BB for the curent limit)
      -40th place in the Poker Strategy rake race - $100 (much easier than I expect).
      -Oponents - Lack of Regulars and strong TAG players till FL100
      -Trafic - good enough for SH.
      -Good first deposit bonus.

      For FL Full Tilt is the only option, the trafick is not even close. For full ring the tables being 9-handed you will have to pay more blinds than on Stars where the tables are 6-max. But asuming you're playing much higher stakes than me, u gonna play short tables, so basically u gonna play the same rake. The level of players at FT is higher, and there aren't as many tables. But they have rush, so it's no problem, but they are tighter than corresponding tables at Stars.

      Def never ever go 888 unless you like 1tabling (or 4tabling limits varying from 0.05/0.1 to 0.5/1) + their FDB is worse than FTPs rakeback.
