Good luck with that one. Let me know if you find such a site, because I will sign up too!

Even if such a site exists I highly doubt anyone will tell you about it.

Re: Any good options?

If you play extremely low volume on Unibet (HUD-free), you can achieve very high rakeback (in the form of bonus points that can be converted to bonuses/tickets) if you just stick with the monthly missions. But you can't make much money if you only play about 100 hands a month.
Unibet is one of the few sites that rewards low volume/low stakes players generously. Curiously, if you play there, your rakeback percentage goes down as you increase volume, until it starts going back up again at very high stakes/volume.

The new rewards system being launched on Stars next week will also benefit low volume/casual players (a bit like CardMatch does), but 50% rakeback is basically impossible in 2017.

Any good online poker rooms?

I'm trying to get back to online poker after 3+ years. So, I ask the community (the regular players more than promoters around here) what would be my best options available for rooms/skins/sites/networks that offer rake return in cash/tourneys, decent traffic and no long delays with cash withdrawals for NL hold'em poker?

I may be slightly biased but I think that this is a great idea.

There is a Global Poker 2+2 forum so feel free to jump over there if you have any questions!

Three and a half years waiting....

to find a decent online network/skin/poker room with:

Decent traffic for 5-6 NL hold'em tables.
Decent cashout/withdrawal process within 1-2 weeks.
Decent rake return (36-55%) in cash / tourney tickets.
Reputable software (tested for year+)
No HUD (tracking) programs allowed.

Anything closest you can think of for what I've been searching? I mean I can tolerate HUD softwares but it's harder to earn $ because games are tougher and I don't want to bleed out of $ in the long run from rake.

Re: Three and a half years waiting....

Why do you ask the same question over and over again? Can't you just use one of the other couple of threads you recently created on that topic?

Re: Three and a half years waiting....

Poker ain't going back to anything like what you are asking for (again).

I remember when I could buy High Test gasoline at $0.25 per gallon. What a splurge!

He'd probably take 55% rakeback at a site that rakes 5% over a site that rakes 2% with no rakeback

Re: What happened to online poker?

I've merged the 7 (!) different threads you've started this year in this forum, all asking slightly different versions of the same questions. And this is after you started 3 or 4 in Internet Poker - I guess you decided to try a new forum after I gave you a warning there.

You've been given lots of good answers already, and if you have any further questions you've already been linked to the appropriate threads:

You're not a special snowflake; please stop creating unneeded threads.

Such an important point that he's been told in many different ways yet fails to grasp. Rakeback doesn't matter; net rake does. Low rake with no rakeback can be better than high rake with high rakeback. And taking it a step further, higher net rake can even be better if the site is soft enough. Overall return is the most important factor in terms of player field/rake/rakeback.

Edit to add: I noticed that once I merged your 7 threads together, you had...7 posts in this thread. In future, when you ask questions either in a new thread or an existing one, you might want to consider joining the ensuing conversation. You're not going to get good results by posting questions, and then re-asking them all over again a few days/weeks/months later, rather than following up with posters that have shown a willingness to help you.
