re: Poker & Where to play for US players
I play at Carbon and Bovada. Compared to the old mega-sites (FT and PS), neither offers much action for my favorite game , HL PL Omaha. It's often hard to find other players. I also try to use Bovada points to play their SNG qualifiers, and you can wait for hours and still not get a game - and that is Hold 'em.
I don't like the total anonymity of BODOG. I was never serious enough to mine data and do detailed tracking of opponents, but if I see somebody a few times, I like to at least get a feel for their tendencies. Impossible when everybody is just Player 1, Player 2, etc.
I've withdrawn from both, but the problem with both is that the check comes Fed Ex and you have to be home to sign for it. Must be a better way.
What's the best quick way to make a small deposit on either? I used to do some transfers between friends on Carbon, but I don't really know anybody on there any more.
