Re: Which Online Poker Room should I switch to?

Play on Absolute. Best cashouts, soft games, plus you get to annoy all the 2+2ers, which is always fun.

Is Lock Poker any good? i.e. comparable to Pokerstars?

Yeah but what about their propensity for cheating?

Someone spiked Tylonal, better not use that.
Banks failing, better put money in mattress.
An airliner just crashed, better not fly.
E-coli in meat.
Anthrax in mail.
Viruses in e-mail.
Government tapping phones.

Stuff happens.

Re: Which Online Poker Room should I switch to?

do not play UB/ Absolute poker.

If nothing else, it is an insult, and a real slap in the face to those who have worked round the clock to expose them and bring them down, because they are still lying about this situation and are still covering things up.

ask the user here named mookman.

This is inherently wrong. If you dont know what happened i suggest you dig up the threads. It was a clear and malicious attempt by ownership/management to fleece players for millions. This doesn't "just happen."

I'd venture to say UB's case was even worse, and even more disgusting. How one could pay cereus rake is just amazing to me.

Is it a further slap in the face that 2+2 does not fully support those who were cheated and not ban/delete ect. any and all UB/AP threads? Here is this community up-in-arms but still business as usual around here.

Well did you think with comments, by yourself no less, that 'stuff happens' and encouraging him to go to Cereus that is why the above occurs.

You cant just roll in the mud and blame 2+2 community because you got dirty.

Absolute Poker is by far the worst poker site on the web. If you are new to online poker dont play there.

I have read that Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet seem to be working but I dont want to use those two sites as they are known for cheating players. I wanted to try Sportsbook Poker but apparently it does not work on Apple Mac's.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks
If you decide to move to Full Tilt, make sure that you are able to get rakeback first. If you aren't signed up with a reputable affiliate before you make your first deposit, you will likely never be able to get it. They don't allow existing account holders to receive RB.

Just my .02

No more FT for me. Now where?

Without going into detail, one of my friends did something horrendously dumb which resulted in getting his account on FT suspended. Because I had logged into my account on his computer before, my account also got suspended as it was considered "associated" with his by FT. Anyways, he won't be fixing his problem in the foreseeable future, so as long as he is suspended, so am I.

Instead, I'll be moving my money to a different site, but I haven't decided which. I play pretty much exclusively full ring .05/.10 and don't really multitable (only 2 or 3 at once at most). I virtually never play SNGs or MTTs.

Being a guy with a very small bank roll playing small stakes, where should I start playing instead of FT?

U.S. or elsewhere?

If U.S., look at the first two replies. If elsewhere, look elsewhere (although at such low stakes those two are still viable options).

Pokerstars will give him what, like 4% rakeback?

I was under the impression that Stars didn't have rakeback?

Not even that much, probably. I wouldn't bother with Stars. Cake should be fine.

If you're in the US, maybe Merge Network? They don't get a lot of press here because they don't have much beyond microstakes games and it's a pain to play a lot of tables, but might be a good fit for you.

Similarly, TruePoker.

OBV PS doesn't have rakeback. But if you play a decent enough volume of hands at 100nl or above then it's quite possible to have a rakeback of at least 20% (probaly nearer 30% in terms of FPP's) and if your sick in the amount of volume you play, then it's possible to earn fpps to the value of 50%+ in terms of RB.
