      Ok so yesterday i put a post up about casino side games on poker sites n my over willingness to put my hole BR in a slot and oh did i get slated.

      So people today i would welcome some 'GOOD' advise as on Friday i intend to start again with a new bankroll from my own wallet bearing in mind that...

      1) poker sites will not disable side games

      2) I have not come across 1 poker site that does not have side games

      3) At a poker table i am very in control
      I do not gamble and also have the will power to lay down massive hands
      when i am beat ( i think you get the idea )

      So in short people i would your advise on how to resist the temptation and maybe if you could share your own experiences with me if you have or had the same problem.

      P.S i will be starting my 1st ever blog on Friday morning to let u all know how it goes and i will be honest about the casino side games ;) PROMISE

      If you aren't big grinder then full tilt because of 27% rakeback

      Hello!

      For lower limits/volume you should go to full tilt poker like NFSS said as 27% rakeback is great for building a bankroll. When you move up the limits and start putting in more volume, you should probably move to pokerstars because their VIP system is quite nice at high VIP levels + pokerstars has the most players of all poker networks as far as I know.

      Best regards,

      Primzi

      NightFrostaSS was right about Cake, they don't have casino games there either. And rakeback is 33%, but I think players are on the tighter side. If you decide to give them a try, go for the new software.

      Also on PartyPoker, all you need to do is go to the main lobby > Preferences > General > Hide casino game buttons
