Default Comparing sites?

Need a confidence boost so this post may have little content.

I have been mixing up my SH play over various sites recently. Hasnt gone well as I have dropped over 150BB [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] but how do these compare?

Stars $2/4
Party $3/6
Crypto 1/2

I have found that they probably rank in that order and my results show this as i have lost the most at the crypto rooms. I may have to drop back down to $1/2 to improve my game a bit but i did quite well at stars until I lost 25BB when it went 3 handed and heads up [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. The games were very similar to party $1/2 but with one tag at the table that i avoided.

I think I may be bluffing too much at the cryptos, it works sometimes and it may be slightly profitable but it is adding HUGE variance to my game which I dont like (900 hands and down 100BB)

Should I claim the crypto bonuses and improve my game or stick with stars $2/4? Or even drop down to $1/2 at party? I would like to play stars $2/4 in the new year for the VPP but the crypto bonuses are SOOOO tempting!

Hope you don't play the games on crypto, max rake is 3 not $3. They have a $2/4 game ...

huh? yes it is - a 3 max rake is almost the same as a $6 max rake. Say the pot reaches 20 (~$40) they would rake 2 (~$4). Playing $2/$4 and the pot reaches $40 they would take a rake of $3.

The way to compare games at different sites is to compate avg VP$IP And PFR with looser passiver games being better over tighter more agressive games regardless of limit.
