Often you hear, " it is high volume from the popular sites that create big hand confrontations like AA v KK pre-flop on a consistent basis.
If you are tired of seeing, as I am KK 3 times in the space of ten hands, or runner runner crush your big hand, I have a solution.
Avoid the big rooms in particular Stars and seek out the smaller online casinos.
The competition is often weaker and you can play strong poker and win.
The big hand confrontations also appear to be fewer.
My selection at the moment is party poker Omaha tables.
I have been told 888 also has good results.

So do you imply that partypoker and 888, that they are not the big sites? And playing with KK there more profitable than playing ones on pokerstars?=)

If you compare those sites to poker stars they are small.
The reason I hear time and time again you get the hands such a AA v KK and runners runners on Stars because of the high volume of hands that site generates.
What I do find on sites such as Party, 888 and BOL, the players are less experience and the above type hands appear less often.
It may be perception but I have a better return, using the smaller sites.
I also recommend people play when the Eastern Europeans are asleep. There tends to be many maniacs among them.
What you need to find in order to win are tight players you can steal from and bluff.

ignition is said to be the largest site for American players, yet the competition is easily the softest compared to BOL and ACR. ACR is definitely the toughest of the three in my opinion.

I dont see, how a smaller poker room create less cooler situations, and coolers also dont matter, because they are a wash in the long run. But it can certainly make sense to seek out less popular games and sites. "For profit" players want volume, so unsurpricingly they tend to hang out, where its easy to get volume the prime example being PokerStars Zoom games.

The point is, that to find soft games, you generally have to accept some kind of inconvenience, and low volume is one of the options. Another could be sketchy "grey market" poker sites or sketchy home games.

The ultimate example of inconvenience is live poker. If you live in Moldova and would like to play in a soft game in a California casino, you have to first optain a US visa and then pay for travel and accomodation. So most moldovian grinders dont go there, and this allow the games to remain soft.

I play on stars for the reason of volume. If I am playing sit and goes 90+ players
there are lots of them running. Bad beats always happen, last 10 mtts I busted 2000
players plus I was 70% favorite or better going into river I lost, often with only 60 players or less in the tourney, I learned to live with the variance like everyone else.

I agree with you. I am also convinced that the 888 is the best option for beginners. This site always has a large selection of good freerolls, playing which, in fact, each player can build a bankroll.

I believe that these hands will appear in any poker room. But if you want to reduce the variance, choosing a smaller field will help.

No matter what the size of the poker site, you've got 6 or 9 players at the table. The chance getting AA vs KK is based on the number of the players that are dealt a hand not the number of players at the poker site. Unless you are saying Pokerstars is rigged in some way.

Totally disagree. What is more - imo biggest rooms are more trustworthy. If there is more players in room, it means nothing other than more players trusted it and enjoy playing there more than in other room
