The State of your Online Poker Rooms...Let's Dish!
Full Tilt Poker
: Serious Downgrade from me lately. With the WSOP
and their ultra-hip commercial campaign, Full Tilt seems to have attracted a ton of new players. Unfortunately, a good percentage of them seem to act functionally retarded. Full Tilt used to have a really mellow, solid, well-mannered crowd, but there has been a noticeable increase of asshattery with the recent influx. Also, only real money
players can chat with the online pros now due to the increase in traffic.
PokerChamps: Just out of curiosity, has anyone EVER been on the receiving end of a civil word at this site? I understand that it's associated with that maverick, Gus Hanson, but honestly, every 16 year old, leet speaking boy on the planet with internet access seems to hang out there. It's kind of hard on the eyes too. Meh.
Absolute Poker: I like playing here. I tend to win and there's always some kind of something to do. My new favorite thing to do is play the .60 sit and go's. I'm trying to work out a problem with customer service regarding a frozen real money tourney I was involved in. I think I'll wait and see how that is resolved before I tease out my feelings about this site.
Jetset Poker: Is there anything not to love about this site? I have more fun there than anywhere else. I love their look, I love the games and tourneys, I love the Go Points, the players are mostly groovy, and the customer support is like Johnny-on-the-spot. I win alot there too. It's like my big, old lucky Upgrade for now.
So what's happening where you play?
