I play at PartyPoker, although I can't tell you if it's any better or worse than any other sites. When I was looking for a place to play a friend of mine who played at Party Poker referred me so we both got bonuses...I haven't had any problems with it, so I haven't looked at any other sites.

A friend of mine has a 1% stake in Full Tilt though, so if you sign up there you make him a little richer...I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

It's just a bunch of rumors. There's a lot of money to be made on internet poker. When people say that the sites rigged, it's just that they can't get over poker itself. If they played in a real casino and played as many hands live as on the internet, just about everything that happens is the same. Any poker site would be stupid to even try to get more money out of it by cheating of any kind(even huge legal ramifications). Internet Poker is a Billion-dollar business, they wouldn't risk it to make a few more dollars...

The only problem I've had with UB is that they have server connection problems. There's been so many times that I was in a tourny and it kept disconnecting, but it wasn't happening to me on PartyPoker at the same time. Therefore i'll never touch UB, not even open it again....

I've played on Pokerstars.

I've heard that people on PartyPoker are easier foes than PS. I'm not sure though because I haven't played on Party.

I recall it was like that a couple yrs ago, but I havent had any problems recently (past 6 months) playing a few times a week.

I dont wanna change the direction of this thread but which of these sites is the best for learning(tutorial?)


Yeah i'm still with the dial up too, and I play on texasholdem.com I think that's it. it's a free site where you can play with fake money or you can start an account. I havn't seen it mentioned here but I like it. ;-D
