Default Where is the best place to play poker online?

I don't play poker. But after watching how this Moneymaker kid won the WS of poker and the way some of these so called "hot shots" play the game it seems like it is based less on skill and more on luck than was previously considered. I would like to find somewhere I can play for small limits. There seem to be many places. I need the top 3 based on popularity, facilities for depositing and of course getting paid quickly. My goal is to play vs Phil Hellmuth and scream in his face when I crush him. What an obnoxious prick that guy is. Watching the tv poker tour now and this Antonio Esfandiari is all over Hellmuth, owns him up to this point.

Party Poker is the loosest by far IMO.

Party's LL games used to be real loose, although they've become less so. Still, they're probably the best.

Paradise is a rock garden.

I play almost everyday.
Party has way too many crashes, service interruptions and they have the worst customer service.
I have stopped playing there.

pokerstars is good for tournaments. Very good customer service
Some 9 handed tables, but I prefer 10 handed

wsex is where I play live..games are good. Very good customer service..fast payouts.
(plus they have a lot of small daily promos that are easy to win..but not a lot of players
You should be able to earn $100 a week from promos (cash in your account)

Too much aggravation with Party.
So I would recommend wsex and pokerstars

Party is head and shoulders the easiest games to beat currently online.


I think Intercasino's games are really soft too.

UB's games are probably the toughest,

and the rest I use,

WSEX,
Paradise,
Pacific,
True Poker,
Poker Stars
24H
Bugsy's
Pokerroom
TNT

are all probably pretty close in terms of competition.

I have DL Pokertropolis but haven't played yet.


I do not really care abt the software, played abt 600,000 hands, I'd say less than 1 thousandth of one percent have I had a software problem that affected a hand.

Maxie what kinda games are you looking for, most have something a little different or unique in their offerings.

Take care,
TA

JJ: you have to be posting these things on purpose just to stir up sh*t. Nobody can possibly be so clueless as to think poker is all luck.

I only play at PokerStars.

I have "kook conspiracy theories" about Party and Paradise, and I haven't really tried any other sites.

(But if I were a paranoid kook, wouldn't I be equally suspicious of 'Stars?)
