I play alot of sites but i have only maked a deposit at fulltilt,if maked a couple of bucks in freerolls on the other sites i play but never any thing big but this week i figured i whould withdraw a litle cash from my fulltilt acount cause i haved been running hot and managed to pump up my BR there quiet a lot and deposit on another site,just because i whant to have cash on atleast 2 sites so i can pick and chose what to play and when.
So the last few days i have been playing play money and freerolls on alot of sites trying to figure out witch on to deposit on and im down to two choses either pokerstars or Carbon, on PS i like the gameplay,wide game selection,the big gurantess and the fact u only have to wait 30sec for a sng to fill up.
On carbon i like the lobby,the table view and just the "feel" of the site.

I whas just whondering those of u who have experients of these two sites witch one whould u pick to deposit on?

The only negative thing i have to say about PS is no rakeback. First deposit bonus is pretty crappy as well. But apart from that I like it. It's nice to have lots of extra options like HU tournaments etc. And yea like you said it takes about 5 seconds to get a SnG started. I've never played carbon tho so i can't really comment.

Probably depends on the stakes you are playing as well. I only recently deposited 50$ at PS so im still playing low stakes; however, it is absolute DONKVILLE at low stakes in PS and easy to have a very high ROI. Without a doubt some of the worst players i have ever seen.

I don't think the low stakes players on Stars are donks at all. The play is very tight and the players seem very experienced as a whole. These are my experiences at least.

Yeah, who wants to play at a site where people constantly get all-in with the worst hand?

Well i don't have much of a sample size to go on at all as i've only played PS for a few days. But in 6 man 3$ turbos i have like +3$ average profit i think so basically 100% ROI. That is actaully more than the average profit i had playing 20$ SnGs on the site i used to play. Obviously you can't generalize much off of that, but i certainly have not been getting extremely lucky nor playing extremely well...i've just played alot of terrible players.

For example, the SnG i was playign with that AA vs A6 hand. It was on the bubble. There were 2 short stacks including me. The shortest stack doubled up through me with A6. Later on he was way down and was forced to call a shove on the BB with 62o vs A8. He flops trips. Next time he gets way down he shoves from the SB with 66 and i call him with KTs in the BB and i lose. He now has about 2.5k chips and i have about 800 (BB=400). He then STACKS OFF WITH A GUTSHOT next hand when the big stack flopped 2 pair. I'm sitting here thinking i cannot believe how many unlikely all ins this guy had won and now when im almost surely out next hand he just suicides out and lets me get 2nd...kinda of an extreme case but i've never seen anything like that on another site.

It is such a popular site and <20$ stakes is cheap for alot of ppl so it would make sense that there would be a huge amount of inexperienced players at low stakes on PS.
