re: Where can US players play? (June Update)(June 26 - latest OP edit)

Bovada is softer than America's cardroom, but the anonymous tables and horrible software make it almost unplayable, IMO. AC is good, but only play there if you're not expecting to put in a lot of volume, as traffic is significantly lower than Revolution or Merge, even less than Bovada.

Which has higher traffic more tables? I thought Merge used to but I heard Revolution is picking up some steam.

I was assuming that Merge being Utah friendly would mean all the skins are, is that incorrect?

I stopped playing Lock and Bovada due to cashout delays/problems. Americas Cardroom is best for that.

Re: Where can US players play? (June Update)(June 26 - latest OP edit)

Fantastic list man...thank you.

I went to sign up for William Hill this morning and was sorely disappointed seeing US players excluded. Does this stand for all iPoker skins? At peak, they have close to 15-20k, which is lavish considering the options we as US players have grown accustomed to for player pools, so it sucked to see another viable option closed to me.

FYI - Maryland players can not sign-up as "new" players at PPN. I am not sure if they are allowed to actually play, but they definitely aren't accepting new players from Maryland.

Just wanted to post this in case anyone was unclear.

thanks for the updates, I guess Merge de-Utah-ified itself. But PPN is now open for all who live in Zion. Cool.

WU withdrawals at PPN take less than a week.

Being as though they are exactly the same, could you not play on Carbon, Aced, Hero, AND PDC, etc and thus multiple your earnings potential? You can even transfer between Carbon-Aced-PDC to keep your accounts balanced.

Or is it only one check at a time over the entire network?

Update from the PPN thread:

The PPN rep has posted:

"For players with balances on Patriots of Poker or Raise and Fold...... we are already working with Everleaf to get funds transferred over to PPN and expect an update on that progress very soon."

Americas Cardroom has a debit card you can sign up for with them that takes only 2 days to get your money with...from atm machines around the world. Their checks usually are 10 days or less.

The Lesser of two Evils?

As an American player....as far as I know....there are only two Poker Networks left for us to play at....besides the few stand alone sites where we can play.

If you had to choose between a "Merge Network" site & a "Cake Network" site, which one would you choose and why?

U.S. Sites (PT)

I'm looking to join a U.S. poker site for low and micro limits that excepts poker tracker, any suggestions would be appreciated (other than Merge).

For those curious... Kentucky players CANNOT play on Cake. I just signed up, downloaded the software and even made a deposit to the site... but then my account was disabled and support told me that Kentucky players were not allowed.

FYI

What sites, open to U.S. players, allow the use of a hud at the table?

It's not quite the same as Cake and Merge etc. but you can play duplicate poker games like Skillbet. Until they legalize online poker again (the Government needs their cut too) online poker is a gamble on top of a gamble.

Inaccurate (you can verify in Commercial Software Forum).

Cake started allowing HUDs many months ago. As revolution, Poker Tracker and HEM had to make quick adjustments for Lock switching, but the Huds always worked on Cake and Intertops.
