Hi guys (universal term not meaning exclusively males),

I have an account with paddypower already but i would like to open an account that would allow me to play in some of the cc events both cash and freerolls. Which would be the best one and why?
Obviously ill open it through the cc link.
Bonuses dont really matter as I play most of my poker at Ppower but i suppose they wouldnt harm me.
Do all of them allow me to deposit and cash out via matercard/visa. IM from ireland - that make any difference?
Do most people here play at 1 particular site or is it a varity?
which is the most popular.
Ive noticed bodog, fulltilt and pokerstars get alot of mention. Which is best. im rambling again so enough.

thanks to those who take the time out to answer my questions.

Ace.

I'd go with Stars, but I'm biased since I play there full time. It's the best poker room I've played at and there's never any trouble finding lots of action at all limits and all types of games.

since u are in ireland get yourself a neteller account and then u can play any site and move money to and from your poker account at any site and also withdaraw back to your bankaccount

if u only want to do credit card then stars does let you move money back to your credit card

cc games usually happen on stars but bodog holds games to and occasionally full tilt and the occasional other site too

Most of the CC action goes on at PS, which is fine by me cuz it's where I mostly play anyway; I recently opened a Bodog account just to be able to follow some of the CC action there. I don't think I'll be playing much there otherwise. Of the 4 accounts I have, I like their site the least.

Hey girls (used in a way as a universal term not meaning exclusively females),

Easy answer for you. Pokerstars by a mile, easily the most traffic and best tournament schedule online at the moment. There will always be a tourney scheduled within an hour or two that will fit your BR, whatever it may be. Also, lots of SnGs running all the time, never hard to find a game whenever you want.

girls are female, boys are male, guys includes everone.

I know this fact just sort of slipped your morning mental meeting estelle. You are forgiven.

Even though I don't care for stars, and would love to suggest FullTilt, as a friendlier table, the fact is stars gets the most action from CC folk.

Yea - pokerstars is the best choice. We play there a lot. We have a money added game there tomorrow at 10pm your time. The OFC is starting there on Saturday. We play a lot of unscheduled cash games there too.

What part of Ireland are you in? I have been there a lot. My husband lived there when I met him.

Despite the fact that some people argue that Stars is the hardest to play at (seems like an excuse), I would suggest opening an account at Stars. If anything, the experience you gain from playing against the better players will help you when you play on a different site.

well

if you are tourney player then stars - it has the most tourneys at the highest frequency.

if you are cash player then tilt - it has the best interface for cash games and much weaker players.

Good thing you actually got the humor, and didn't take me for being serious about it, like someone up there.

My husband lived in Firhouse in Dublin for many years, then moved to Kildare when I met him. He lived right up the street from the Curragh. (I miss all those sheep lol!) Love Donegal too - beautiful there, of course all of Ireland is. (he is Gesshoo in here - the 2 of you might run across each other)

Yep i know it :)

NETELLER has the advantage of being able to move money around the different sites fairly quickly. Most sites will accept money from your visa/mc but wont cash back into it if you want to cash out.

Alternatively just deposit on stars, they allow player transfers so if you ever need funds on Full Tilt/UB etc someone here can do a player transfer for you.
