Neither one worked out so well.
I wasn’t much of a fan of subscription poker in the first place. Basically, you get some points to start with that you can use at the various tables and tournaments. To win more points, win a tournament or two. To win cash, compete with 700 other players who play like they’ve been playing poker* on Zynga for a while (at least 30 minutes) and love to go all in and do crazy stuff and if you make the final table you might win $10, or maybe some more points.
* or maybe they’ve been playing Farmville. Hard to tell, really.
The game selection is far more limited than at a money site. The only way to make money is at the multi-table tournaments - Sit ‘n’ Gos are just going to get you more points. Ditto the tables. It kinda makes sense for ClubWPT as the parent organization (the World Poker Tour) is a tournament-based system. Still, if you’re a cash-game specialist, you’re SOL at NLOP or WPT. BFD, you say? LMFAO.
The next two posts will document why I don’t like the specific software(s) of these games, like I needed any more reasons. Still, it’s something to discuss.
