Default witch pokerroom is you favorite?

i think about skipping all my money from different sites to one (maybe 2) but not sure on witch one...it's annoying to jump from one room to another, playing different limits, because of different bankrolls...so now i wanna ship my money, deposit all on one site and play there...but witch site...im playing a little bit of everything, from NL up to NL200, FL up to 5/10 and tournaments with buy ins up to around 50$...witch site will you choose...my main choices are:
Pokerstars
PartyPoker
Pacific Poker
Everest Poker
Ultimate Bet
Full Tilt Poker

It depends a lot on rakeback, traffic, and software, imo. Given that you like to play MTTs, I'd say that FTP or Stars will be your best bets, but this is ignoring the much-bandied-about softness of sites like Everest. If you feel like you can play all of your games at a softer site where you have rakeback, that one. Otherwise, I'd consolidate to FTP or Stars.

yeah it's a pretty tough decision
PS: no rakeback,pretty tight FL,tough NL competition...great MTT's, great traffic

FT: pretty much the same (great FL HU traffic)

Party: fast cashouts, great traffic and competition...no rakeback, no HU tables..sometimes problems with updates due internet key

pacific: softest competition ever..no rake back..bad traffic, bad tournaments..

UB: great MTT's..good rakeback...bad traffic on FL HU (at least in european times)..tougher NL competition..and, hmm it's UB..

Everest: just checked it and got my account freezed AGAIN!! aaaahhhh (every time i travell and play from my laptop they freeze my account...and validation last time took 4 months!!!!!!)

It seems if FL and MTTs are an important part of you game, a consolidation at Full Tilt seems like the easy choice??

You only have 1 bankroll, which usually is the sum of your deposits on the various sites, and you should act according to that bankroll. The only reason to operate with different bankrolls is if you have big difficulties transfering funds around to and from the various sites.

But if you want to narrow it down to 1-2 sites, you should choose Party Poker. Soft competition and good traffic. Rakeback is of little importance compared to the ease of competition.

You may choose one more site for either extra easy competition (Pacific) or a site which offers HU play.

they had a 25 % rb program for like 6 months, but its been shut down again, positively making Pacific the site in the whole world with the worst loyalty programs!

Default witch pokerroom is you favorite?

Among those poker rooms you mentioned, my favorite are FullTilt Poker and PokerStars. Found these two rooms quite efficient. And also according to the current days' rating these poker rooms are running on the top. I practiced my free money gaming also on these poker rooms. Now is playing there for real money. Party Poker and Pacific are also the good ones. So you can play on those also.
