Nuff sarcasm, welcome to CC I play on Entraction, sure the tournaments are pretty rubbish, if you're a more of a tournament player I wouldn't bother sticking around. I'm a reg at 10NL/20NL 6max, even though with the smallish numbers I choose to mix both stakes to get at the juiciest tables, I consider it relatively soft, and the player base to be quite polarised, proportionally compared to other sites a lot of aggro short stacks and recreational players with a few nitty regs thrown in to boot.
I also like that it's in Euro as I think it gives recreational players the delusion that they are not risking as much money as if they were playing for USD, and as said, I think micro stakes on Entraction are pretty soft particularly given the field size. Also support are top notch, I only ever got one poor response, but you're always gonna have a bad egg in customer service, by and large speedy and helpful, especially compared to a fair few of the bigger sites.
I also am a fan of Ulliott, he did a talk at the Oxford Union last year which was very interesting. He gets a lot of stick online largely by people that don't get him imo. He's truly part of the old school, his trash talk is calculated and he doesn't mind people thinking that he's past it. His tourney record speaks for itself and he's a mean cash player, particularly PLO. His hair is awful though.
