Sorry for the extremely late response sheepodog, but spadeclub is a poker site
. I'm still a member and have been since the very beginning. I've won numerous free membership tourneys and have only had to pay for 1 month. Right now I'm set thru feb 09 via the freemem tournaments. I've won about 1,000 bucks on spadeclub in 2008.
Fleetstreetgames was similar to spadeclub, but it didn't have proper financial backing and closed down. It lasted from august to halloween. FSG's Dan Goldman still hasn't paid the final checks from people like me who kept winning up to Halloween. They said 6 weeks, but it has been 2 months now. I won about 700 bucks.
Zosoz was another site that was too good to be true. I won 2,000 bucks in 2 months there. I joined at the end of October when somebody at a fleetstreet table mentioned this wonderful new zosoz site. Zosoz went bankrupt and ended tourneys december 14th. This site had a 100k tournament the last sunday of november and then started bouncing checks because the investors backed out. All of us complained and thru another forum got organized and were able to get the bounced checks money returned us via cashier's check before Christmas.
To wrap up Spadeclub is here to stay because CardPlayer is backing them. I won more money at fsg and zosoz in a shorter amount of time, but I recommend you join SpadeClub and use JoeShowdown as a referral.
