Here's my take. I've played on FT, Stars, Doylesroom/Microgaming, UB, Absolute, CLUBWPT, Bugsysclub.com, Pokerworld, Pokertime, PokerHost, BoDog
, Sportsbook.com, Players Only
, NLOP, BOS back in the day, and probably 10 or more that I've forgot to mention.
Bottom line is this, the only site I play on now is Aced.com and here is why.
Personally, I don't care for sites without live help, be it a phone or instant chat, I want someone live, Tilt and Stars do not offer that, as well they are too big now, I prefer a site that is an up and comer and one that is small to medium size. By the looks of Aced.com and the network it's just about what I want in a poker room.
I've made 2 small deposits, the play is solid, there are things I would change that are probably more network decision based then individual site/skin based.
#1 I would like to see micro heads up sit and go's. $1 or $2 buy in's currently the least expensive is $5.50
#2 I would like to see an option to change the felt color on the table. you can change cards, icons, etc but not felt
#3 A buddy list would be helpful
With that being said, they offer one helluva Bad Beat Jackpot, and I do enjoy the software. ) My Personal favorite was the old Tribeca Network that Doyles Room and BOS, and Victor Chandler use to be on, that playtech purchased and destroyed....LOVED THAT SOFTWARE)
With it being gone, I really don't mind the software of Aced.com
Great Banking options, actually one of the few sites I can use my Debit Card on. No more prepaid fee cards or expensive Western Unions.
I used the customer service instant chat twice, and both times it was fast, the operator was helpful and friendly.
Overall I would give this site a solid 8/10, incorperate the above requests to better the site, and perhaps a few more sat tournaments in the $1-$10 range and I think we are looking at a 9/10 and a serious competitor to the big boys.
