Favorite

My favorite site is by far, PokerStars. I love the speed, and the prompt customer service. Cashouts have never been a problem (they print me 1 a week). Gotta give them my props.

I've been playing on Pokerstars for a while now, it's probably one of the most reputable sites there is. I've also been on JetSetPoker a bit, they have multiple freerolls daily if you can get over the comic look to the place.

Poker School Online is a tremendous site, not for playing real cash games, but just for the knowledge base.

Party Poker out in front

I've played several sites, including poker stars and paradise poker. While these sites are adequate, they lack the one thing which any poker room needs...volume. There are not enough players to have a good variety of games.

Party Poker has more than three times the number of players of any other poker site. There is a great variety, and waiting time is minimal. I no longer play at any other site.

By the way, pokerpulse.com lists the numbers of players at each poker site.

Personally, i like the smaller sites because you get to know the players better. Playing poker against players more than once to me is real poker because you have a better psychological profile of the person compared to playign ith a stranger. And they tend to have a better community of players who chat more. The medium sites (paradise, stars, pacific) always have enough players to get a game going.

I have only ever used Paradise Poker. I chose it because I was learning to play and they allow you to play without using real money which many of the online casinos don't. I was pretty happy with it all in all although I found it moved a bit fast for a novice like myself

i agree with magoo

the choice of whether to play for money is a good thing

and at paradise you can always find a game

personally i'm too broke in the real world to play for money till i'm more comfortable with my game

freerolls are decent if you are extremely poor or deadset against risking your own money. I've known at least 3 people who took winning from a freerolls ($50 or so) and ran it into the thousands

Arrow Free $50 Coupon to the first to use it

I like planet Poker. Mike Caro who owns Card Player Magazine started this site with Roy Cooke. I totally trust this site and have used my bank account with it no problems ever. They have excellent customer service and I highly recommend it.

poker room

Each site has its advantages. For cash games, i like poker room the best, the action is quick and the games are fairly soft. For multi table tourneys, i think party has the best. For sit and gos, i like ub. For big tourneys, i like poker stars. I like to mix it up and play on 6 or 7 sites because i find each site specializes in different things.

I'm mostly a multi tournament player, and I like royal vegas tournaments the most. There's a lot of horrible players and the blinds do not move up as fast as they do in party (at least the last time i was there.)

party is the fishiest so has been one of the more profitable, plus i am not restricted on how many tables i play.

poker stars is smooth and has great tourny's. customer service is second to none.

ultimate bet is one of my favorite because of all of its features like ultimate buddy which allows you to track your favorite opponents that like to donate to you. plus i make a ton in rakeback there.

absolute is great for bonus whoring and thats it. its a rock garden because of everyone chasing the bonuses.

paradise is soft but its slow and hand histories can take up to half an hour and customer service isn't very good.

pacific is the worst site you can play which is a shame b/c the worst players on the internet play there. you can't multitable, you constantly get disconnected, the service is terrible, the interface is from the dark ages etc etc.

poker room i didn't like because the bonus took a ridiculous amount of time to clear which made the games way too tight. i wasn't there long enough and didn't log enough hands to get a true indication of what the site was really about though b/c i didn't want to waste my time stealing blinds.

full tilt is a nice site with potential. if you play high enough you can clear that 100% bonus and its worth it.

just my take on a few sites.

Admin, you say you personally like smaller sites b/c you get to know them better, but with poker tracker and datamining i know the player within an hour, then i join the table and its over. i don't see the point in going to a small site that sucks that doesn't support everything that helps me (pokertracker, rakeback, datamining). personally i don't see why you would steer away from the big four or five.

Hello. In response to everyones comments, I've played several sites. I've played UB. . . freerolls for a longtime decided to deposit real money there and did okay at best same with party poker. I don't do so hot at the big site tourneys. However, if you love to play multi table tourneys where you don't have to beat 810201901102010 people to win some money I LOVE JETSETPOKER. It's got decent ring games and easy bonuses, but I like it it for the tourneys. Tell em CubsFanSean sent ya and get bonuses for you and I.

full tilt

I don't see why more people dont play at full tilt. i have played many other sites but this one seems to fit every comfort level the best.

My Favorite site is "Binions" in Las Vegas at the Freemont Experience. The tables are real, and there are plenty of little fish who think they know poker. If you want to make money, play at the casinos, never online. I also enjoy Bellagio, and Sam's. And that's where I make some $$$ each, and every time. While I play online (fake money only), I do it to learn about the "all-in" hucksters, the rookies, and the wannabies. And trust me, they also show up at the real tables, after "thinking" they are so good when they played at the freebie tables online. All you have to do is take a table at a real casino, and "reel in the fish."

Favorite Site

My favorite site is still Partypoker.com. I like it for the Sit N Go's and the tourneys. I have won a great deal of money there, and have never had a problem cashing out either. If anyone is interested in signing up, make sure you use the bonus code *** deleted ***. That will get you started with a 20% bonus up to $100.
