Looking for recommendations

Currently living in Germany playing Stars, Party, Winamax and Stars.ES.

Moving to UK where Winamax and .ES are not allowed. I want to keep up my volume with at least 1, preferably 2 more sites.

Looking for:

- Best evening schedules of low-mid stakes MTTs

- Ideally, support for PT4 - I don't actually care much about the HUD, but results tracking (since I have all my usernames merged) is real helpful

That last one is tricky. For example 888 is supported and I already have an account I could use, but the software is terrible. On the other hand, sites like GGpoker and Unibet look like good software options, but I know they don't support HUDs (which I assume means I couldn't import hand histories to track results?).

Re: Looking for recommendations

Not sure what's allowed in the UK, but RunItOnce is launching in some form on Wednesday I think.

I've never played MTTs, so no idea which sites have them other than the obvious.

RIO, good call. Could be a great option if the site picks up steam.

Re: Pokersite Suggestions? Where should I play?

PokerStars last 2 years threat like ****!

My recommendation is to NOT deposit there and play there ,

1. They start to take money from accounts
2. Need 4 5 days to answer on support mail,
3. Forzing accounts without reasons.
4. Rakeback is **** and promotins are so bad as opposed to other sites.
5. Last few months site is crushing often.
6. Cashouts take to long.

Re: Pokersite Suggestions? Where should I play?

Looking for:

- Rakeback and lots of traffic on 10NL-25NL

- Ideally, support for PT4 - I don't actually care much about the HUD, but results tracking.

Ps. I'm from Sweden.

Possible Options

So i am loking to play some micro's - build a roll. Stars seems best games, no RB. Party is tough games. Ipoker no HEM2. MG same. Anyone have any other suggestions for playing 10-50NL these days - or are we all just destined to swap money and pay the man until everyone is broke ?

Re: Pokersite Suggestions? Where should I play?

Personally I think it's come full circle where every site is almost as tough and the higher rake, **** volume and **** software isn't worth it so just play on Stars I guess, as much as we all hate them.

If you donít mind using BTC, swcpoker.eu has the softest ssnl around, the lowest rake of any site in the world (to my knowledge), bbjp tables that donít take extra rake, plenty of small mtts and satellites that overlay, allows multiple accounts, doesnít require any dox other than email address (and BTC wallet if you plan to withdraw) and doesnt support any huds

It definitely seems like a great place for rec players to play. Mid/hi NL pros prob wonít find enough action, unless playing at HU tables. If I played nlhe I might not be shilling to the 2p2 crowd. But i play the oddball games and hope you guys come play badeucy after a big win. Iíve certainly done my share of reciprocating at the nl tables so itís only fair

Re: Pokersite Suggestions? Where should I play?

For 5/10 cash games would anyone recommend party over stars?

Been playing on stars and there’s 0% rakeback at those stakes (not that the rakeback at lower stakes is much better).

Main concerns about party is their security - what’s the situation on bots? Also do they allow HUD’s? On stars the field seems softer, is it the same on party or have all the regs moved over?

Appreciate any input and thanks in advance

Re: Pokersite Suggestions? Where should I play?

Any sites other than Stars that have a zoom alternative for PLO at .5/1 and/or 1/2? Never seems to be running on Party or 888... Preferably non anonymous tables as well, but not a dealbreaker.

In the same way Unibet allows people to change names, people can create as many swcpoker accounts as they want, giving people the option to be anon (which recs seem to enjoy; see ignition/bovada) if they want.

But thereís some incentive to play one account, since your rakeback is determined by the total amount of your non-expiring lifetime rake. So for example, I have gotten to 33% rb tier cuz I play on only one account. But others might prefer to make a new name every session, if they are embarassed by their results. Itís a good equilibrium and gives recs and regs what they each might want, respectively.

But like I said in the rest of the post you didnít quote, thereís plenty of other reasons to play there as well. Lowest rake in industry, no extra rake bbjp, and everything from tiny micro to high stakes (where the rake is exceptionally low)

Is it trustworthy though? Seem like prime conditions for an exit scam once enough people deposit.

Theyíve been around for 7 years without missing a payout (Iíve only played for 4 so idk as much about pre-2015. Thatís not to say they wonít run off w everybodyís money at some point, but current withdrawal times can be anywhere from 30 min to 12 hours after request. People start to ***** in chat when itís been 6 hours cuz most of the pool is more familiar w BTC than they are w standard withdrawal times for a poker site.

Thereís nosebleed games at times that are fun to watch when guys have 5 BTC on the table but itís mostly smaller action if playing ring nlhe. Right now at 4:30 est thereís a couple full 9 handed bbjp tables going and one bigger shorhanded game and one tiny micro game (they donít even rake these games bc they are so tiny). Thereís a higher % of non-nlhe games than any of the public sites and some of the Stars ďother gamesĒ players have come over to play mix, big O, etc

Best online poker sites for cash players to play on in 2019

You go to Stars rewards thread, everyone is hating on stars, you go to Party thread everyone is hating on Party. Clearly, there is no perfect site to play on Today. Peronally, i want that rakeback, and as a long time Stars player i am now prepared to leave and play on other sites. Can we make a list, a personal list with perhaps short comment of your top 3+ sites to play cash games in 2019. For me the most important by far is rakeback and player pool (how many games are running and how many fish are playing) followed by rake, bots, customer service, software i guess, not allowing external software (HUDs)..etc. You can write your own criteria.

As i said , i am just leaving stars now, not much experience with other sites, but right now my list, in no particular order:

1. Party (2nd largest site, 40% RB)
2. WPN (US players, decent RB)
3. RIO (Phil, good RB)
4. GG Network (more fish, decent RB, strange software way too many setups which i can't explain hopefully just variance)
5. PPPoker (US players, terrible software i find it hard to focus for longer time with not the best eyesight)
6. Chico Network (haven't played yet, heard good things that there is a lot of fish)

Room for european micro cash game player

At the moment i play 10Nl on pokerstars. Becuase of high rake and very low rakeback i consider moving to other site. My volume is not great, on avrage i play 5 - 7 hours a week, 4 regular or 2 fast tables at once. I want to be able to track my hands and get better rakeback or at least not that high rake like pokerstars have. Any suggestions where else i can play?

Re: Room for european micro cash game player

try microgaming, you can get a good rb deal and they have lowest rake caps. BUT from what i understand they are about to anonymize tables sometime soon, or already have implemented anon tables. not sure about traffic and botting, too. maybe it makes sense for you to try grinding deposit bonuses on different sites with a good rb deal on top. good luck
