Apparently I have been registered there for a long time. Username is dj11, which I'm sure would not be available now.
I am playing the free version, and have no idea if the paid version is different.
I used to think the downloadable software was based on the AP/UB software, which was OK except for those security holes. I think it is now flash based, but still has that AP/UB influence. Sounds are highly reminiscent of the AP/UB software.
Tables can not be sized/resized. There are no player notes. Multitable is handled awkwardly. Seating for tourney's starts 15 minutes before the game starts. SnG's start as expected, except you don't register for a SnG, you join a wait list.
Play was snappy considering it is a Flash game. Lots of sit outs in the SnG.
Truthfully, the ergo experience so far is below the Revolution tables, which I personally think are the least pleasant of the 'normal' poker sites I can play at these days. But that would be JMHO.
I tried that site once.Its an allin preflop fest.Haven't played there in prob 3 year.

I get it for free each month (just look up FAME club in Google for instructions on how to be a VIP member for free) and I have so far won $40... The site is lame... the cash out bubbles are insane... usually top 10 payout and there are a thousand players in the tourney... No software issues... no connection issues... but if you really want to make money then go on to something like Bovada which is an excellent site and lots of fish (since Bovada is only available to US and Canadian players). I never have deposit issues on Bovada... just don't like the 4.9% fee on deposits and no rake-back. I digress... Club WPT is a donkey festival... period. I live in Nevada (where they just made online poker legal) and the first US regulated site is to launch (South-point Casino) pretty soon (on the news last week a representative stated that they are 6-8 weeks from launching. A LOT of the casino's here in Vegas have got their online gaming license... but just waiting to launch as soon as they have the software complete and up and running). Anyway... hopefully New Jersey will legalize online poker so we can have interstate compacts to create a large pool of player's.
My two cents,

re: Poker & ClubWpt review
I play there when I don't have anything better to do, but did win a seat into a nice tourney once. So, I can't complain. Also won some cigars. The beginning stages of the tourneys are "all-in!". Just wait about 2 levels and then start playing your normal game.

I used to play there for free also, I live in a state which is not allowed to pay to play there or else I may have tried it out.. I once won one of there $10 freerolls which only had a payout of $10 for first place! Havent played there in awhile but I can imagine its a huge donk fest like moemtg said.

I was a VIP member for about a year. After deducting membership fees. I had a profit of about $200. I also won the $10.00 open freeroll. It's one of the hardest freerolls to win, like all open freerolls. But all in all its not a bad site.

re: Poker & ClubWpt review
I will echo the sentiments here. I used the technique that moemtg references to play there for a month. Not only was the play horrible, but there are only a couple of tournaments worth your while a month. And if memory serves, those would have thousands of players with the payout pct. less than 10%.
Why anyone would pay $20 a month to play there is a head-scratcher.

most fish play there because they don't want to lose money even thought they are $20/month lol, I believe donks use it as a plan b when they loose they're paycheck but still have a monthly subscription lmao.
