Watch out for the rake on Pacific it's almost TWICE that of other sites at micro and small stakes FL.

I don't care how soft the games it isn't worth paying between 6 and 7.5BB/100 in rake, not unless you have like 60-70% rakeback.

If you're in Europe I'd say for FL your best bets are probably Ipoker or Party if you want the best mix of traffic, game quality and rewards programs.

That said at 0.5/1 and 1/2 FL you'll find soft games on any site....except maybe Cryptologic.

For good 3/6+ games you'll be struggling most places but Party may be you best bet, at that point though you may want to have money spread a little on 2 sites just in case a good game starts up.

Oh and btw rakeback is MASSIVELY important at low stakes FL, these games are raked at over 3BB/100 just about everywhere. The games would need to be significantly better before I play with no RB or rewards program

How about MTTs at Pacific, are they as soft as the cash games?

Yes but a lot of them have horrifically bad structures.

I was speaking solely for Low Limit FL where PArty has some of the best games/rake structure on the net up until 2/4 still. (Ipoker's games are just as good in places but they kinda screw it up sometimes with bad software and big rake)

I'd imagine 400NL + is going to be difficult almost anywhere and the OP is only planning ot play up to 200NL anyway.

I have 30% RB on the 888 network but I still won't play there. Traffic isn't that good and the rake is just too damn high.
