Canadian Getting Back Online
 
FYI, I havent played online since before the full tilt fiasco...and never played heavily online to begin with, just local 1/2 NL games and 10/20 or 15/30 limit games. So I guess im kinda a rookie at whats hot and what isn't online right now....

Looking to get back online as a Canadian on a site that offers some nice limit and no limit cash and tourney games. I'm also very interested in winning vacation/poker packages abroad. I used to play party poker but found it to be mostly europeans and the tourney rooms to be very very slow in tht evenings (early mornings there). They used to have some nice qualifiers for big tourneys around the world. Ex 10k package includes 5k buy-in, flight, hotel, spending money etc etc.....

I heard 888 is decent now a days...and what about stars? They're big enough they should have tons of these, no? Any recommendations for the games I play would be awesome! +rep

it's tough to find limit games anywhere other than stars these days :/

everyone will now sing the praises of 888.

Just signed up quickly., wasn't overly impressed. Lots of live tourney's but no full packages. Pretty much seems like they assume you're european when you join. Offering flights from "any european airport". The whole vacation package thing isnt really a deal breaker but ive always wanted to win one of those things. Might make a 1k deposit and see how things go anyway. I was always impressed with party poker. They always had a couple nice promos going at once.

if you deposit to 888 and decide you want to move to party, we can probably do some kind of circle jerk. i generally have more funds on party than i need but can always use more on stars. probably someone floating around who wants to trade stars for 888 with how popular its become of late.

I don't care for 888's software, or party's software. Right now I'm playing mostly on a small start up site, but I'm also mostly not playing that much. Professional energies are going into horses.
