Has got to be O8. The level of play on each and every site is terrible. Players consistently draw for runner runner for half the pot. Pots consistently get to bonus level at small stakes. Rock play before the flop and on the flop makes it near impossible to lose in any session. Opponents play so predictably they don't have to flip their cards to know what they hold. You can be drunk and stoned and still win. The only drawbacks are that the games are slower and O8 is incredibly boring.

I'm sure that holdem is more profitable. But you also have to keep paying attention to the nutcases and how bad beats are influencing attitudes and on and on. Better to smoke a joint, watch some football, and make some $$$.

O8 is way too slow and you actually have to think more. No thanks.

Do you have a draw to the nuts? What are the pot odds for my part of the pot? Am I +EV or -EV? That is thinking?

When I first started playing seriously online but had only a tiny bankroll, I played O8 exclusively for the reduced variance...it worked out great. Only problem was the relatively few games (even at Party) once I moved up a couple of levels. Once I had to start sitting on waiting lists of 1/2 hour or more, I switched over to hold 'em with its 80 gazillion tables to choose from.

Must be a year since I last played O8...maybe I'll fire up a couple of tables for old times' sake.
