One last thing -> you can do transfers on that site. Maybe you can find someone somewhere who'll transfer with ya? (although I haven't been so lucky so far.... just been giving it away for free so far,... in 'transfers'.. not on the tables, lol). Personally I think it's an ideal site for someone just getting started out. It is very easy to be a winning player on there & for micro tournament players they have tournaments running regularly and are setup/geared towards the low buyin player with most of their tourneys being <$25, with the $10 & $20 mtts having good structure & fields of around 200-500entrants.
Hey PO, I appreciate all the info! I'll definitely have to give the cash games a whirl then, even if I much prefer 6-max I can probably NIT/TAG FR against maniacs at 2nl with decent success. If I can fit them into my schedule, I may give the smaller field small buy-in MTT a try too.
I've thought about doing a transfer, Makwa who I played with in the freeroll last week who I would trust without question. since you've described the tables as so extremely loose, I think I will just try to play through the "$138 wagered" though as I don't really need the funds immediately.
BTW, I think the "$138 wagered" figure means I need to have bet $138 before I can cash out? I guess it's probably easier for players to calculate how much they are betting as opposed to figuring out how much rake/MGR they are generating for the site.
