I've moved up from 2nl but not sure whether to focus on 5nl stars or 3/6 cent
888. Anyone can say they make more of a profit at these stakes here?
Also how would you compare the bonuses each site gives you in return? The rake is much higher on 888.
I deposited $9 dollers this weekend and made $800 on 888 I've had 4 final table cashes this month in around 10 attempts, ranging from 250 - 800 players ish.
the games are soft in tournaments there tends to be two types of players,
the maniacs who pay you off, and the timid players who open limp and give up pots if they miss the flop.
if you find yourself deep in a tournament with these breed of players, its a goldmine and you can become a chip magnet if you have reasonable tournament knowledge and positional hand range knowledge,
you get to see alot of hands and it can be pretty easy to take pots aswel as getting payed off.
even at 50NL and 100NL there are plenty of players that dont know what they are doing,
generally bad players with no bankroll management knowledge will dive in with a 50.00 deposit or 100 deposit thinking its the norm, also reacreational gamblers are well known to play medium stack games on 888 and their lack of game knowledge is easily notable to even a semi serious player
