My personal review of 5 online poker rooms

Its been a month and this has been my experience so far.

poker stars: I know this is a favorite of so many people but.......
For me it was not a go. I will admit they have a lot of games and
a lot of traffic. Lots of micro tables. Something felt off to me and
cant put my finger on it exactly.

Paradise: I have a love/hate relationship with the place. When I
first started I did fantastic. It was almost to the point where I was
feeling funny getting so many great hands. 4 of a kind. Many
full houses, etc. On the 4th or 5th day. My fantastic luck changed
and I could not get 2 pairs. LoL. Still......I have to admit I like the place.

Pacific: Lots of tables and traffic. You can always find a game there.
I made a little money but felt like I hadnt found my home yet.

Doylesroom: Interesting. I played PL08 there and learned a lot
from the regulars. I lost $20 but learned A LOT.

Carribean Sun: I felt very comfortable there and I like their software.
It is nothing spectacular but easy on the eyes. They don't have
a lot of traffic and that is their only downfall that I could see.
This is the one place that I feel their cards are extremely fair and
have not felt that they were shifted one way or another.

LoL...........Cute

Your reply is cute. Since I have been on this board I see so
many new people asking where is the best place to go.
I consider myself New on line but not new to poker.

Fulltilt has the best players. You can actualy out play someone there. Not as strong % wise as it use to be when it first open though. When Fulltilt open up, the players were there from word of mouth around poker rooms. Now that they been advertising strong the last few years, there have been more Donkeys signing up. But it still overall % wise has the strongest play.

On most online sites it is a Keno fest. Open for 4X the BB and you will get 5 players in the pot. You must have a hand against these players. Can't out play calling stations.

Right on the nose, ive been playing at poker stars for 3-4 months and you can rarely win by bluffing because you always have 4 guys still in the hand after the river who have caught something from previous cards. When they started with a 8 2 and caught two pair. Its getting rediculus. Im gonna go try full tilt, hopefully it has the talent you say it does.

I just tried Full Tilt

Full Tilt and LOVE it.

I do not get the feeling the cards are fixed. I dont see hundreds
of flushes and weriod river experiences. LOL
I must say I love it.
Some people complain about the avatars being too strange but
you have the option to turn them off. At first it seemed like
I entered the RainForest Cafe with monkeys in the jungle etc.
But I turned the avatars off and now it looks like any other place.
