I play on Carbon Poker. I switched over to Carbon after Full Tilt got shut down. Pretty nice site and comparable to what Pokerstars used to be. I usually just play SnG's and haven't had any problems finding a game to play. I usually play between 7 PM - 11 PM EST.

I play on Carbon Poker as well. I enjoy it. I have only played freerolls for the past couple months. But I had no problems depositing/withdrawing cash when I played cash games I miss the hell out of Full Tilt tho.

I was just going to post the same thing. I heard Carbon (the Merge network) is really the best choice. The Cake network sux, and then there is Bodog. How is the traffic at Carbon? Any 1/2 NL 9-10 handed games going on?

Any site on the Merge network is "safe" for now (Carbon, RPM, cant think of any other skins).

Cake is not Cake anymore....Lock Poker (which got kicked off the Merge network) bought it out..and merged its Lock Poker player pool with Cakes existing player pool. Its now called "Revolution Poker Network".

If you thought online poker was shady before, id stay far far away from that network. Cake was already taking up to 3 months to receive cashouts, before the buyout. The past few weeks ive read numerous stories about vanishing deposits.

Americas Cardroom is the only other choice. Havent played there so cant offer any information.

Bodog pulled out of the US market months ago, so youre wrong there.

WPT online is also a joke. Pay $30/month to play...but the cash tournaments are 3000+players deep for a top prize of $20 or something like that. Also heard stories of players not being paid...if they cant shell out $20 in a timely manner, thats pretty sad.

Cake is not Cake anymore do you mean the withdraws take 6 months now and there are no more good games
