You can try skillbet if you play at those levels.

I would say ACR, but since they introduced the new progressive rake race, all the tables are full of grinders, and I highly doubt this will change, they apparently have big plans for it several months out. Anyone else noticed how much tougher it has gotten?

By "cake", I am assuming you mean a skin on Revolution network, because the Cake skin is having HUGE cashout issues, with players waiting over 6 months, and having checks bouncing. Stay far, far away from this skin, and just go with Intertops.

Black Chip is the best skin on Merge IMO, and given the limits you play, probably your best option.

Where can I play if I'm in California. I'll keep stakes small and mainly play for entertainment (though I'd like the option to actually cash out at some point).

I would say that carbon or any of the other merge skins is your best bet right now. The Revolution Network is having problems recently and the Winning Poker Network simply just doesn't have enough traffic throughout the day unless you simply want to play cash tables.

I wouldn't say that the Revolution network is having problems. Lock is having some issues while they make the transition from Merge to Revolution. To my knowledge, there hasn't been any new issues with the other skins on Revolution since their transfer from the Cake network.

well Intertops is currently not taking any new usa players, Lock is having problems paying people who's deposits have vanished, and cake is taking forever to pay people there checks. So I would say Revolution is having some issues.

I haven't played on Bovada in a couple months but their games are super soft. If you don't mind only being limited to 4-tables or the anonymous players then it's most likely a good choice.

Well I did a cashout from Bovada in Jan. this year and it took about 7 weeks to get my check, then it bounced. Then it took another 3 months to get another check from them for the same $$. It cleared. So if you don't mind waiting a looong time to get your money then I guess Bovada is a choice. But everyone is anonymous there too which really opens the door to collusion and company bots winning tournaments.

In my opinion, cashouts are the #1 issue for American players....and the best site for that is by far Americas Cardroom on the winning poker network. Super fast and reliable compared to all other American accepting sites.

New to real money online

I'm thinking of depositing money online and playing a little micro/low stakes in effort to improve my overall game. I am a us citizen so I'm not sure if there are legal issues. I like mixed games and being able to withdraw smaller amounts than $500 like some others i have heard of. Thanks for any help.

Personally, I recommend any skin on the Merge network but go here to review your available options; http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/28...-edit-1210457/ and decide which site works best for you.

Your best bet is the Merge Network. They have the biggest player base and the fastest cashout (Western Union) for US players.

For MD we are stuck with revolution network only. So hold your nose and take your pick between Lock (proven inept since at least network takeover) and Cake (history of shadiness and super slow cash outs for most). Sad but it is what it is.
