I play PokerStars but sometimes I play 888 poker, in poker room 888 poker there are so many good freerolls and players less on freerolls if I take tournaments the same for 0.01 cents in 888 poker players 1500 players and in PokerStars 2500 and more, in 888 there are normal tournaments with your level that you fill and what will be higher your level and prizes in the tournament more and in PokerStars there are no such tournaments but there are others!
Pokerstars is good when you do already crush the field, they get to fill cash game tables and tournaments with a large volume of players, but it is where sharks and regulars are in bigger amount. If you want to get some money, in most cases, pokerstars is -EV, but if you want to learn to playing, it is a way. Remember, anyway you will spend money with your learning, reading poker books, studying poker courses, making poker coaches or playing poker with stronger players. But if you want to get money, you have to play against weaker players and get more rakeback as much as possible and 888 do those two.
Right now I play on both, but I prefer and will always prefer PS because I feel so relaxed there, people are ok, I feel somehow good at PS.
888 will give you ton of chances to win something, but in most cases, if you dont deposit any money, you can almost always win few cents up to few dollars every single day (depends).
They have ton $0,01 cent tours with $0,10 tickets/$1 tickets and so on, ton of chances for beginners to build their bankroll step by step.
Anyway, PS is, was and will be #1 option for a long time.
Definately Pokerstars is better.
888poker lacks on many things - if Possible you should even avoid it. I've had issues with withdrawls and it takes them (the support) over 48 hours to reply to queries.
I recently signed on to 888 Poker and I must say that so far I am enjoying the experience on that site very much. Not so many crazy plays like I see often on Pokerstars where people go into hands with absolutely nothing and end up winning.
I play at 888 poker and Poker Stars. 888 Poker has some good value freerolls and there VIP system is not to bad depending on your club level status. Poker Stars will always be in 1st place because of traffic software and selection of tournaments.
Well I have only play at Pokerstars And i think is the best for tournaments Also the software is super the best of all poker sites I think.. But I have heard a lot of 888Poker also and I think is the second best Poker site in traffic and software I'll be Opening an 888Poker Acount today and start playing there So I can give my best opinion by my own Experience!
Both rooms have their own characteristics, pokerstars leads in terms of the number of games and players, ease of use and promotions for beginners, as well as a poker school in which a beginner has the chance to form, almost from scratch, his bankroll.
888 can not boast of the same number of games, but according to many players opponents are much weaker there, but in general there are also lots of stocks and interesting games for every taste. So to decide, it's better to try both))
Depends what you are searching for. If you want to punt of and have some fun it doesn't matter the result will be the same in any room. If you want to make money then id say 888poker is a better option. Poker is getting tougher every day and people chose Stars because they see large numbers of traffic and many options witch is like a mirage, the reality is the field is the hardest in the world it always has been. At the end of the day you could make money in any room if you have the skills and put in the volume, but id always pick a softer room. So i'd advise you to take a pen and paper and write down what do you want to get/archived from the game and you'd have your answer. Have a nice day and run good at the tables. Peace!
Actually I'm banned on 888 poker like others players from Poland, therefore playing on PokerStars. I play Spin Go MAX on PS, because other sites don't have this format. I playing too MTT but big field on PS casued that I play only freerols with CardsChat and tournaments for which I won the tickets for free. Summarizing I prefer PokerStars.
which is the best option according to your experience...
PokerStars is the biggest room, you ask from my experience, 888 is much better for microlimits, 888 freerolls have no point of comparison with those of pokerstars, I usually like more 888 and their promotions
the 2 of them are my favorite 2 poker rooms to play on , 3rd comes party poker
both are great , depends what your looking for ... better first deposit , promos,freerolls
player base , anyway I am playing on both rooms and I think you should play on both rooms to and see were you wanna stick .
Pokerstars. 888 have a terrible refund policy. Whenever something happens, they might continue an MTT 3 hours later, without any warning or headsup whatsoever. The last week has been a nightmare. Their support team is terrible.
which is the best option according to your experience...
I play Poker stars and 888,on Poker stars you have much more players and tournaments is so long when you play,on 888 poker you have a nice structure of tournaments,average tournaments ,end after 3,5 h,but poker stars have more tournament,so you can play on both sites ,both sites is good in my oppinion!
I would say 888, at least I can make some money there. On PS youll find a lot of donkeys. Even so, i told myself that I will play only freerolls there and nothing else. Just because is the biggest doesnt mean is the best. End of story
