re: Poker & StoxPoker and CardRunners to Merge

Well from what I saw tonight your first observation is true and the second is false. I watched some extremely good powerpoint classroom-type videos, with cuts to the hand replayer. Their forums suck though, but from what I saw I was extremely impressed with their videos. Definitely considering the $150 for 6 months deal Stox is offering. Not positive, but I definitely liked the videos I watched. Plus their search feature works (ie if you want to find the NLHE ring tables at 200nl you can actually search for it and find it instead of the crap Stox search feature).
Stox definitely has a better community/forum and with the new coaches should be getting even better in the near future, but I just watched a few 200nl videos at CR and a few higher ones (also watched the CTS 25/50 one released on Stox earlier in the week) and was extremely impressed by what I saw. Not positive about it yet but I am definitely considering taking their deal and getting the CR membership.
