What is your Merge Skin of Choice?
I was searching for a posting like this, but found none so I decided to make a new thread. Basically, what is your favorite Merge skin and why? Choices are:
... and maybe some I have missed... lmk.
I personally choose Hero Poker as if you are a player with not a lot of cash and love SMALL field FR's... this is for you. They run two $99 MTT FR's a day where the top 9 payout $11 a piece. They also run two $100 "Triumvirate" FR's a day where the top three payout: 1st: $50 2nd: $30 and 3rd: $20 .
I personally have cashed in both tourneys (just cashed in $99 MTT Hero FR a couple hours ago... EASY $11. As well as last night I took third for $20 in "Triumvirate". The player field is max reg @ 300 people... however these tourney's are usually in the 100 - 150 player field. I find it these MTT FR's really good to practice your game as well as easy cash. True, there is a "playthrough" of 20VIP points per dollar... BUT any cash you make over the winnings is automatically available and has no playthrough. Another words, if you win $11 in the $99 Hero MTT and go play a double up SNG $10 game and win... you will have around $10 that will be able to cashout (Cashout Check only option for USA @ $100 min). So all in all... this is a great site for one who wants to go from rags to riches.
Also, Hero offers you "levels" for your VIP points earned and has kickbacks such as entries into Quarter Qwicky, Fast Fifty Freezeout, $1 Double Up SNG and so forth. Now you probably are thinking... what will I do with all these tourney tickets? I don't want to play those... Well hey that's no problem... contact rewards manager of Hero Poker and you can have him convert all your tickets into cash minus the admin fee. For example, you have 10 tickets to Quarter Qwicky entry ($0.25 + .05 cent admin fee) you will be able to redeem the ten tickets for $2.50. This to me is just a nice incentive to play on this Merge skin.
I AM IN NO WAY ADVERTISING OR PROMOTING A POKER ROOM... Just merely stating the awesome deals on Hero Poker. Now Carbon Poker
and Black Chip Poker is where you will find your weekly FR's and buy-in tourney's so I still play on both those sites... Maybe in the future Card's Chat will join Hero Poker with a FR and buy-in? That would be nice to see!
Also, I am able to deposit on any Merge skin using a prepaid AccountNow Visa
card... goes through every time no problems as well as Wells Fargo Debit (a little more involved, but still deposits.) I find this to be freakin' awesome as the days of NetSpend seem to be more or less blocked? It always bills my credit card as SAWPAY and there is a little charge for international fee, but hey it works!
Cash out options are limited for the USA... only check by mail at $100 minimum and usually takes 2-3 weeks to receive... Yes, it is a pain... but I am on SSDI (Social Security Disability Income) and I am used to waiting a month in between paydays... Patience is a virtue!
Well, I hope this will be a start to an informative thread. Feel free to voice your opinion and that is my two cents.
