re: Poker & For a U.S. Beginner, Full Tilt Poker or PokerStars?
A *new* account? Well, you already have one on FullTilt, so use the CardsChat sign up
and not only do you get the normal 100% bonus, but you get the exclusive $25 CardsChat bonus.
The rake is gentler in the micro-stakes game on PokerStars
I think FullTilt has a bit cleaner table interface, but finding tournaments by name is tough.
I like being able to upload my own avatar to PokerStars, but that's a silly reason to pick a site.
There are more players and more tables/tournaments to choose from on PokerStars, and they have the best customer service in the business.
But really, play what you're comfortable with. I started playing freerolls
on FT and didn't like PS when I moved. Now when I go back to FT on occasion, I don't have the same feelings I once had.
