Default Best Sites for HU for my goals?

I am currently playing 30's - 100's mix of turbo and non-turbo on stars. I make around 5K FPP's a month and average about 1800 - 2200$ profit per month, with a winrate of ` 57%. I am curious if any of you have experience with other sites playing heads up. For example, If I play Full tilt I would get a $600 cash bonus and rakeback, If I play on Ultimate bet I heard there is a rematch button which intrigues me if you get the right donkey on tilt it seems you could make a mint.

Do any of you think it would be positive EV for me to switch to a different site for heads up?

Thank you in advance for any responses.

fpps are kinda rakeback, although at gold star it is like 15% or something. if you are playing HUSNG, i suggest stars because they have the most running all the time, FT doesnt have as much traffic above 200's so it could become difficult to move up

I didn't play much HU on UltimateBet, but the few times I did try to play, the traffic was really light even at lower limits, and the way UB takes keyboard focus away when it's your turn to act makes it a pain in the butt to multi-table if you ever type in bet numbers (which you probably should be doing most of the time).

FT's structure is faster, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view. I really dislike FT's turbos, but FT's regular structure is very similar to PS's turbo structure for the first 15 minutes. I haven't played on PS, but from what I gather, the playerbase is much fishier at FT, but traffic is definitely low at the higher limits.

FTP's structure is probably the worst for your winrate but best for the quantity of games you can play. It is the best IMO.

Edit: I never really got into Stars SNGs so I'm biased against it. [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

You can change this easily by right-clicking on the table and clicking settings. There are quite a few different options that people don't even know about, remember to "save settings as default" so you don't have to do this every single time you open UB.

To be honest, I'd stay at stars for now. Your winrate is going to take a minor dip and at 54-55% on FTP you might not be able to handle the variance if you're used to 57-58%.

If you can get a solid winrate of over 60% at the 33s and dip down to 57-58% at the 110s then I'd say go ahead and see how FTP treats you. Otherwise, stay on PS for now.
