Default DONT PLAY UB

i just switched over to Poker stars. but i always played at UB and sometimes at FTP. FTP had some soft action sometimes. But Poker stars now this is a site with lots of soft action i can feel the advantage in my regular 10$ n 5$ sit n gos. The UB games are way to solid. At the 5$ level if you have an edge it is always small .. but on stars ive gotten a good run to start off with. I guess party would be even softer at these low limits.

conclusion- if you play at UB maybe its time to think about going to another site

I play pp and the action is definately soft, but my buddy started playing at poker room. He said they have soft games and good software, though he's a noob.

Could anyone tell me if Pokerroom is worth the switch.

I've been playing over at Stars for the bonus, and started out on a Turbo Heater.

Then 15 in a row OOTM.

On-line poker is rigged.

Eh, I guarantee Party is just as soft as Stars (or even more so), and UB (I used to play there) isn't as tough as you think. UB players are notoriously tight, but far from being solid.

Why wait until you have a BR for the $22s to move to Party? The sooner you make the switch to the Party structure, the sooner you're going to be able to get used to it. The style of play is considerably different from deep-stack SNGs, so you may find it tough to jump right into an 800 chip structure and do well. Just a thought.

my BR feels comfortable in the 5$ which i cant play at party. so i'll let it grow to 22s so if i need to go down a limit i can.. instead of jumping to 10s and having to move sites again.

Not the worst theory in the world regarding dropping down.

As a bit of a thread hijack, i play at Pokerroom (well, BetonBet, one of its skins) and find them to be very profitable.

The software however is slow and clunky. But that might just be cos my laptop is slow and clunky. Only when i upgrade will i truely know either way.

The players are no better than party players. In fact, by the games being slower and play requiring more than just pushing preflop, even in pretty late stages, your edge over the weak players is magnified.

Saabpo, every 2+2er's favourite bot, would not turn a profit in Pokerroom. Not as much as party anyway.

I believe, that having tried most of the major sites, including stars and party as the ones named in this thread, Pokerroom is the most profitable site ive played on yet.

The rakeback and ability to work of bonuses using SnGs is a great thing too.

My theory, just try a few sites and find whats right for you. You'll make mistakes, we all do, but one you find whats right for you, ignore what others say. One to a hand and one to an opinion.

Oh, and whatever you choose, choose one with rakeback - or at a push if choosing stars take out the max you can on all their bonuses.

Find what works for you. Push folding level 4 onwards didnt work for me, maybe like most here, it will for you. Maybe you want ten minutes a level like stars, maybe 10 hands is more your bag. Hell, why not try 5 or 6 handed SnGs? The choice is endless.

Find your path young padowan, find your path.

I REALLY dislike the super tiny checkboxes on Pokerroom.

Maybe they're fine if you're playing one table at 800x600 or something, but I'm on a 19-inch monitor with 4 tables on it. Pokerroom's boxes are just too unforgivingly small when you're doing that.

Thats why the F keys are a great feature.

Keyboard based poker, its the future, ive tasted it.

Just turn the 'pop-up to front feature', click on the table when its your turn and hit that keyboard.
