Party Poker is one of the biggest poker rooms in the world and you will always be able to quickly find the game and limit of your choice. Don't waste your time on small poker rooms that have not achieved critical mass. Great interface, clean games and generous player points system. Sign up bonus for new accounts.

Pacific Poker is another one of the giant poker rooms where you don't have to wait for ages for your game of choice. One of the reasons I love playing at Pacific is that the games often seem to be of a relatively low standard. Some sites boast lots of famous players and pros, but if you just want to win money then Pacific is one of the best sites around. Good new account bonuses, nice interface, super fast dealing and clean games make this site one of the best.
