Ultimately, you should choose what is best fit for you with what they offer.
As I agree with this, lets give you a bit of x-y-z as to why.
I have had long term experience with Bovada. They are known for good tournaments (MTTs) and probably the best when it comes to customer service/payouts with us US peeps. The biggest negative they get is the whole not knowing who you're playing against. Each cash table/sit n go/mtt, you're assigned a number as your name. You could be sitting at 2 cash tables playing the same people and not even know it.
I've recently started up on carbon, mainly micro stakes. I have no experience in cashing out there, but I haven't read anything extremely alarming in my opinion. They offer OK promotional deals and action has seemed a bit soft. They include a free HUD which I've been playing around with, it's kinda cool.
I have no experience on ACR, but from the reviews I've seen on these forums it is definitely behind the previous two. Read up on what the sites have to offer, maybe even download the software and check out the games for a bit before choosing where you deposit.
