Hello. i am currently grinding those 1tables sng at 888 and i have to say that i like the competition.. I have a ROI of 15% after 200 games. obv not a big sample but the competition is so much softer than at Pokerstars.
looked at my sharkscope graph today and i have to say that i was shocked.
Have won 30dollars so far but without rake i would be up 56dollars!!
I have so far completed 56% of a 10dollars bonus so there is 5.6 dollars + 1dollars in "standard rakeback".
But still 56- (30+6+1)= 56-37
19 dollars rake.
I really like the competition on 888.
At the lowest limits you get 2.5% rakeback, at vip do you get 20%. So i would get 1*8 of the currently points i have earned, that seems more worth it. But then this welcomebonus just goes up to 80 dollars.
I am not even talking about the cashgames, i am not playing cash at 888, have read some threads about it and 888 apparently have the highest rake overall in cashgames.
Would love input on this one!

Yeah 888 has high rake but IMO it makes up for with softer competition and still semi decent traffic when it comes to the cash tables.
What level of stt are you playing, 60c, 1$ etc....they do have sick rake on them as its 10c rake on the 60c and 15c rake on the 1$..............just started playing a little on there again myself last night with some mtt's and actually noticed they have improved some of them from a 2k starting stack to 3k which is very nice.
Didn't like the fact that I got to the FT in one and first hand lose AA < QQ bugger flopped a Q for a 67k pot and what would have been the CL since he was the CL at the time....but thus is poker, I'm really happy with the change in starting stack tbh.
Used to play lots of stt's there and yeah they can be beaten for a pretty good ROI even with the ugly rake paid and poor accumulation for rakeback there..........I'd say its well worth it if for nothing else but to have a br somewhere else for a change of scenery when you want it.
