re: Poker & How do you feel about Graphics now?
(not from the US, but do play on those 3 sites)
I've never liked Carbon. Can't stand the bet-thingy... I find it awkward to use, time-consuming, etc. Just don't like the look of it either & never have.
CAKE, first experience on Cake network/software was when DoylesRoom was moved onto there. Probably played less than 500 hands after it was moved (was fine where it was prior if you ask me). Now with the newer look, I must say I like it more than the way it was, but still don't really care for it. No real problems with the action or anything... just don't like the look & feel. (except for the 'clapping' when you win a hand (< just kidding... how do you turn that shite off?).
Bodog, pretty much what dj said above... except I never really liked it although I was beginning to get used to it (at least it wasn't running like it did for me ~yr. ago.. with the freak'n site timing out/disconnecting ALOT). Now with the 'new' update/upgrade (DOWNGRADE), I refuse to play on there (don't want to list them all as it'd derail this thread).
AmericasCardRoom (Doyles). Haven't played on there since Doyle took his name off. It's better than it was (what couldn't be?) but I still didn't care for it enough to play on it (but know that I'm lucky to have other options).
