I'm gonna finally make my first deposit sometime soon within the next few weeks
I had a small (~$100-150) bankroll built from freeroll winnings at noble and so that's basically the only place i've played
but i'm leaning more toward pokerstars because it just seems to be the best site
lots of people
lots of tourneys
good tourney structures
fpp and vpp rewards points
i don't know about bonuses; i haven't seen any for ps for some reason
anyways i think im gonna start out with around 100 or 200 bucks and see how i deal with that
i did alright with that other bankroll, made like 150 bucks out a few dollars of freeroll cash, but after my pc busted and i got it fixed, i hadn't played in a few months and it died down fast when i started playing again

anyways i'm doing it soon and hope im not just throwing cash away here
anybody got any suggestions about the site? or general advice?

I'd say UltimateBet and/or Full Tilt. Both have 100% bonuses now and both can be cleared in an average amount of time. Not to mention they are both top quality sites.

PokerStars is also a great site, but no bonus. Bummer.

Also, I'd start with at least $100. I used to start with $50-$75 until I figured out I needed more cushion in my bankroll AND I was short changing myself on the bonus. Good luck!

I think poker stars is a good choice, for all the reasons you mentioned, plus it will allow you to play in our bi-weekly events there, which are a lot of fun.
Titan I think may be another good choice, but the quality of play at PS is a little better.

Mr Sticker reminded me of Ultimate Bet! I really enjoyed this site after winning the Loyal Freeroll a while back. It is a really great site. Unfortunately, I have since lost my winnings :D, but I was really impressed with UB.

Make sure you download from here so CC can get a kick back from it. They use it to continue recieving funds that we use for Special Events on here. It's hard to pick a couple with all the different sites. Good Luck looking forward to seeing you at the tables.

I would say pokerstars first becuase they mave the most tournments, variety and amount. If you are looking for another site, I would say either Titan or Full Tilt (although their minimum deposit is $50!)

i personally like FTP best... i've played at stars, and all the others aside from UB, and FTP seems to have the most fish.

oh yea i plan to play alot of SnG's and some MTTs and probably some OH8 ring games
i'll probably stick to those games because everything else just gets me broke (NLHE ring games - eek)

I think Pokerstars is 1st in amount of tournaments isn't it?

Stars has a massive amount of sit and go's and tourneys on 24 hours a day.
But-ins vary from 10c (true) up to nearly $1000 for some of the special event ones.

Id say you cant really go wrong with stars Chuck, the OH8 sit and go's at stars are a gold mine, and youll never have to wait for a game.

I`ve heard 24hpoker is really good for you and someone who`s gonna reffer you. after 100 vip points you get 25 euro and your referrer 50. Every Vip point is also earned in where 0.30$ rake is being taken and you don`t need to see the flop. :) VIP points can be changed into cash or used in some tournaments.
