Last week we outlined the key reasons to play on Carbon Poker. Carbon is the ideal site for smaller stakes No Limit Players just starting out as serious Hold’em Players. But what about more serious, high volume players? To me there is only one choice right now: Full Tilt Poker. It’s also a great destination for casual players.

First of all, by signing up through Rakeback Resource you get 27% rakeback and a $5,000 monthly rake race that is easy to qualify for. Full Tilt Poker also has the best feature for high volume, or high action players. Rush Poker is everything that Full Tilt says it is. It give you many more hands per hour, meaning you will play more and earn a lot more rakeback and Full Tilt Points. That makes their new Black Card program easier to qualify for, which will pay out 3% extra rakeback for each of its tiers.

While they do not offer reload bonuses, they do offer two Iron Man Bonuses per year. On top of this they often offer smaller Rush bonuses and Rush Week promotions which pay out smaller, easier to clear bonuses. Pokerstars simply cannot compare at this point. Recently their bonuses have been aimed at nano limits with MicroMania, or no one with their recent godawful $5 Tournament Ticket Reload Bonus.

In the end you get comparable traffic on Full Tilt, guaranteed rakeback, Rush Poker, rake races, bonuses, and the Black Card system. The best of both worlds would be to keep most of your bankroll on Full Tilt Poker for volume and take advantage of the higher rakeback and fish (but lower traffic) on Carbon Poker with a smaller percentage of your bankroll. But if you want all of your money in one place so you can play higher stakes and more hands, Full Tilt is currently the best site for you. You can also take Rush Poker on the go with Rush Poker Mobile.

If you are just a fan of poker and want to play for fun with pro players, or the high action Rush Poker, then Full Tilt is probably best for you too. Not a member of Full Tilt Poker? Click here for more information or to sign up for 27% rakeback.
