for the past five years i chose party first, because it was the closest thing to the buy ins and prize pool i was playing for in real life,
example a $5 cad tourney i would play at my local casino when i turned 18 would have a 50 player turn out, and on party it'd be a pretty close prize pool for a $3.30 USD buy in, and close to the same amount of registrants.
I think ARC has a great cardroom. Easy to set up and deposit. Great Customer service as well. They have a bunch of freeroll tourneys as well as private tourney options on their site. Great cardroom if you are a beginner or a seasoned vet!
Pokerstars have more players and more variable games and garanted prize tournaments, and will be the best site to open your first account, but the lis theevel of the poker is very hi, if you go to Black Chip Poker or GGPoker. you take your money faster, trust me.
Hi Joeisi, I have to disagree a little bit, I have found over the years of playing on PokerStars the win loss ratio is more determined by Variance than it is good play or good cards, however, on GG poker I have not run into a long string ov "Variance" In fact if you check the stats the number of so called Bad Beats on GG is much less than that experienced on Poker Stars..
I would rate sites as : #1 GG Poker, #2 ACR, #3 888, #4 PokerStars
Just my humble opinion
well I started to play on PokerStars and then I played a few games on GGPoker and then i found ACR and that's where I've been since I find that I learn a lot there cause its a mix of all kinds of players so I used that to build my patience and decide which hands to play and so forth when to back off not to overbet and other things, I find PokerStars to be a bit more of a professional site to play on in some or most tourni's bluffers are few except for freerolls but it's dependent on how one plays too cause I mix my plays but its just one's preference but for me right now its ACR
G.L @ the tables peeps
3 L's of Life... Live, Love, Laugh... and play poker :D
playing over 10 years i learnt to not putting my hands on fire for any poker room. no need to be paranoid but the fact is that poker rooms keep changing for good or bad.
after all business are business, they don't care about you.
