"Don't??" Really? Cake has been an ATM for me. The 5/10 limit tables seem pretty straight forward and the 1/2 to 3/6 aren't too bad. I've only dabbled at the higher limits (8/16 and 10/20) but there's money on the table. The shark factor has been increasing though.
Cashouts within 24 hours (to ePass) and CS has been responsive (the one time I needed them).
The negative is the software can get buggy. No doubt about that. But then I've had 6 tables running at once without troubles too. It just seems sometimes the server gets geeky and sllooooowwwwwwwsssss down.
I just signed up at cake 6 days ago with a £100 investment. Today ( 6 days later) it sits at $735. I have won a $12 tourney netting over $235 and the rst is from the cash tables and the poker bonuses. This site is full of fish in my opinion but has some sharks filling in at some tables too. I just started promoting it at my website too because i think the play there is soft. Very weak games, can be light on traffic when it comes to SNG's, but cash games and tourneys are good.
Id say go for it, its been a good site for me so far
If you don't know about Cake, then a quick briefing is in order.
There are at least 3 sites you can join, Cake, SportsBook, PlayersOnly, (and I think a few others), where you can enter the same table playing the same people. Think of it as theater in the round with each door being operated by a different company.
Not sure why Cheetah doesn't like the site, I do. They have the better version of a bounty tourney, although a bit steeper than some at $10+. The software is not a problem for me, I have not seen any flakiness.
Before you do this, you might want to investigate whether any of the skins offer you a bigger bonus.
What I don't like is the software because you can't resize it. I don't have experience with support, good or bad.
I have won some freeroll money there. When I reach the minimum to withdraw, I will do that to see how fast they are. I have made it a rule to withdraw from a site to test it before spending any serious time there. If I experience problems or delays, I withdraw everything and don't play there.
I love Cake - mostly because it's full of horrible players. So, umm, if you're good, stay away, because I want to be the one taking all the fishie's $$
Their software is a bit clunky compared to the other site's, but I'm not there because of the software.
As for cashing out, they've always been pretty quick about it.
As some others mentioned, there have been some sharks appearing there. I definitely saw an improvement in the level of play at the $20 SNG's over the last 3 months. Before there may have been 1 or 2 people per table who knew what they were doing, now there's more like 3-5 good players per $20 table. I recommend using sharkscope to identify the fish from the sharks...
cake is a good site,a lots of bad players ( but is a little few players 3600 players only at the moment I sent this message)... ... But I get more bad beats on cake than on pokerstars ............That can maybe be because pokeroffice dont work on cake...
