Actually, these guys use their own cashier. It's no good, but they use their own

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

Here's my experience with current online US sites in regards to cashouts, which I think is the most important aspect of any poker site:

Bovada - Decent cashout times with the option of bankwires or a check. It takes about a month to receive a payout, but you can request multiple payouts to speed it along. $3K max check and $5k max for a wire.

Merge - Check payouts take over a month to receive and you are not allowed to request more than one. The max withdrawal by check is $2500. So it's kinda dumb to play on there if you are making over $2500 a month. Also their western union fees for cashout are a super rip off.

Cake/Lock - Don't waste your time. I received a payout from cake after 5 months. That is insane. I haven't heard anything good about their payouts, so I would recommend to stay away from this network until they get their **** together.

In conclusion if you want the most reliable/fastest payouts, Bovada is the best option. The software isn't as terrible as everyone makes it out to be. It functions just fine and the anonymous tables are good in a way as it prevents people from using tracking software.

GOGO BOVADA. YOU ARE WINNING!!!!

Intertops? Winning Poker Network (ACR/True)? Both have fast cashouts, as well, in my experience.

Last week also, but I went through a link on my affiliates web site. I know the immediate close you are talking about, got that from RPM. But not here. Maybe they had a quota, or affiliates are treated differently. Maybe pm the Intertops rep in the Intertops thread?

I just heard from a very reliable source that Intertops is no longer accepting "new" US players.

I also heard this will happen to all the rooms on Revolution except for Lock and Cake, but take that with a grain of salt.

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

Is there a thread somewhere commenting on the volume and quality of games on the various US player friendly sites? I can't seem to find one . . .

If this is the right thread I want to know if anyone thinks there is a better option for SNGs, MTTSNGs and MTTs than Carbon. Only playing casually for supplement to live play but I would like to get the best volume possible in.

(sorry if wrong thread).

Thats insane. In Jan i waited 6 weeks for my check from Bovada...then it bounced. I had to wait until last week to finally get the 2nd check (for the same money). Now im anxiously waiting to see if it bounces again. Americas Card Room rules....

I'm from Maryland and find the poker website restrictions by state to be confusing.

What makes a site like Bovada not accessible in Maryland but a site like Cake poker to be allowed in Maryland? Is it just the site owners deciding which states they want to include? Or is there something with the software/gambling structure that makes a site like Bovada not legal in Maryland or something?

It has to do with different state laws and whether or not poker sites want to avoid the risk or not.

So besides Lock, NY players can only get on WPN sites at this point?

ACR doesn't seem bad, any reason someone prefers True over ACR? I downloaded True for a quick look and it seems very similar.

They are practically the same, except I've seen more people trade for ACR funds than true.

Re: *** Merge Network deposit/withdrawal discussion thread***

Did a successful trade with PowerhausAA

I sent him GDMP then he sent me Lock.

My Lock SN: bmifsud

His Lock SN: 2468013579 (i think - i searched his posts to figure it out since lock doesn't tell me his SN anywhere)

Trade was really quick and easy.

PPN has just announced that several everleaf skins, representing 3000 players, are moving to PPN. If true, PPN may pick up enough traffic to make it a viable option for americans looking for a new place to play.
