^ Definately this. If you're in the US now and trying to play poker online it's way different than the pre Black Friday atmosphere. Playing in the US is just such a PITA now that many/most casual players simply don't bother. I, like many others, have moved to Merge and you can expect to see the same core of players day after day, table after table. Slim pickings now for US players. Not saying its not beatable, just significantly harder. Aside from that, I'm considering live play as an alternative now, although nearest casino is an hour away. Again, PITA.
