    Best online cash games since Black Friday

    I would imagine that the cash games on some of the smaller sites have exploded with growth since Black Friday. Curious which ones have good cash games now, and don't seem too risky.

    Carbon: Looks like they have good games running all the time as high as $5/$10. Looks like PokerTracker will work on that site, but PokerTableRatings doesn't track hands from this site. Does anyone know a different site that mines this data?

    Bodog: Looks like they also have games running all the time as high as $1/$2, with some higher ones occasionally. PokerTracker and PokerTableRatings seem like they should work here too.

    I guess Bodog recently announced that they'll be closing to U.S. customers.

    PokerTracker works fine on Carbon Poker, but PokerTableRatings doesn't track hands from this site. Does anyone know a different site that mines cash game data for Carbon?

    Oops. PokerTableRatings doesn't list Carbon Poker as a site they support, but when I type in a player's name, it comes right up. This is good news.

    I never ended up depositing on Cake because they don’t allow HUDs, and it’s almost impossible to look up opponents.

    I didn't deposit on Bodog, since they announced they would no longer allow U.S. players after the end of this year.

    I only managed to get one small deposit onto Carbon, and can’t find a way to get any more on there. But I definitely like the site. The software is very nice, the HUD works well, online MTT and cash game tracking sites work there, there is plenty of cash game action, and lots of money to be made once I get better at cash games.

    Does anyone else have thoughts about the best place for U.S. online players now?

    cake has got to be softer imo, but i think that is because good players are struggling cashing out. think they are selling their funds at .75.

    if you need some cake let me know.

    Cake allows Visa deposits. Also, I'm not sure what occurred recently, but I am now able to run the HUD on Cake. However, I think that there are still some bugs.
