I live in the U.S. so that might have an impact on the responses, but I'm curious.

About a month ago I started playing at Full Tilt Poker, because I couldn't find any local brick and mortar games. Well, since I've started I've managed to triple my bankroll, so now I'm looking at the game as potentially more of a full time thing. I'm just trying to figure out if FT is the best place to play.

How do the entry fees compare? At full tilt usually the entry fee is 10% of the buy in.

Both Full Tilt and PokerStars are great for MTTs and Cash Games, but Stars is much better for Sit-n-Goes. The entry fee varies, but I've never noticed a sizeable difference between the two. I would just try to determine which one has lighter competition or like better and play there.

If you are just starting out, smaller sites with good bonuses or rakeback deals can help you build your bankroll a lot. There's a risk with a non-reputable site that you may be ripped off though, so take that into account.

I have accounts on both FT and Stars, but I usually prefer FT.

FTP is great site for playing, but it have very big rake, on micro stakes you get burned by this big rake for you, so you must register by affiliates, with rakeback, i think normally is 36% rakeback.
i think best sites are PokerStars, FullTiltPoker.
on PartyPoker is playing very much people,but that software is really bad, it have lags and small timebank, so it isn't good for multitabling, i was playing there 9 tables and it's really hard, with that lags and small timebank, so i think PokerStars is best

I've been pretty impressed with FTP (and got sucked into that mainly by their $600 rakeback bonus), but by the sounds of it I'll have to give PokerStars a try just to see which I prefer.
