Just as Jhonnyboy did, I went and took a look at it myself, and honestly...don't even bother with the site.
You're paying $24.99 per month to get a bankroll of $165.000 in playmoney chips, when the only way to win real money is through some freerolls they make. So, with playmoney chips all you can win is chips and all you are constantly losing
is real money.
Let's say you want to play with playchips, then you can play them for free with no need to pay anything for them, just register at one of the major sites and play, they are there at your disposal for free, and if they're gone, they reload it, and once more - for free. (I think it works this way for all).
If you wanna start a small bankroll, make sure you search around the forum for posts on bankroll, probably some in the gold archive, but didn't check it.
I recommend a great read that everyone loves and has many many followers http://www.cardschat.com/f13/chris-fergusons-bankroll-management-84344/
There are many ppl starting only on freerolls till they get some dollars to start playing on the micros. Cash tables start at the 0.01/0.02 cent. Others prefer SNG/DoN/MTT and start either on the cents tournaments or on the $1. At least here you're playing for something!
while on PurePlay you are playing for chips and only losing real money.
If you wanna start by depositing on a site and play for real money, make sure to check offers that might be around, for example FullTilt, many ppl didn't know at the time of signup about the 27% rakeback, but you can take advantage of it.
Just look around the forum, I believe every info you need is around here.
I've never played on PurePlay, but I'll give my thoughts on the general quality of play and accuracy of random hands dealt there. Well, the hands are random, so I believe it's the same on every site or else it would be rigged. About the quality of play, I highly suspect it's on the low end of the spectrum.
Btw 19GTX67, those tournaments you talk about with low number of players, are those the freerolls? if so, how much is usually the prizepool? and how much do they pay for each player at the final table?
