Easy Money at Juicy Stakes/Revolution Gaming by supa on 10 Nov 2012
rating 3 / 5
It hasn't been long since my account was transferred from Cake Poker to Juicy Stakes so I can't speak much about how they handle support or cash outs. I can however testify to how easy it is to make a killing at Revolution Gaming.
As a mediocre micro stakes 6max cash player I've found the player pool on Revolution to be lol terribad. Games from 4nl to 50nl are filled with fish and most of the solid regs are easily exploited because they aren't interested in getting into big pots with other regs. A high 3bet% is key to dominating vs most regs here, just watch for when they start adjusting and playing back at you.
Starting tables is a must do at Juicy Stakes. Tables usually fill up quickly and leap to the top of the table vpip% list. Variance can be brutal at these tables but if you have any clue what you're doing you'll come out way ahead over a larger sample.
Rake is a bit high on Revolution so having rakeback is crucial. Rakeback is 36% and I highly suggest using RakethRake as your Rakeback provider. RTR has a monthly $5000 freeroll with, from what I've seen, a player pool usually comprised of bad cash game regs so if you have any tournament experience you have a huge edge. I've actually never deposited a dime on Revolution, having started my roll by placing in the money in one of the RTR freerolls. Another perk to using RTR is they'll help you're cash outs move along faster. Just email them when you've cashed out and they'll take it from there.
I haven't taken advantage of many of the bonuses offered at Revolution however I've found the Gold Card tournaments to be worth their weight in... wait for it... gold. It takes a little work to catch on to but once you learn how to buy and sell gold cards these tournies are like printing money, and I suck at tournaments.
If you're an American player stuck playing 4nl with a breakeven winrate on one those other US friendly sites you'd do well to mooooooove (couldn't resist) over to Juicy stakes in my opinion.
Decent MTT schedule since joining Revolution by Dan Abnormal on 05 Nov 2012

Ive always enjoyed cake poker and they have since become JUicy for USA players. I very much like the schedule of MTT games this site offers, all day long they have games in my price range $3-$10. Some of the promotions, like the recent gold frenzy was an insanely good value. Hard for me to rate the ease of game since Im one of the players that probably make the site soft. If your looking for mainly SNG's then this is not the site for you. They are very non existant except for DONS. Cash game are good but Id prefer more small stake tables during the day time as there is usually a wait. Cant say Im very impressed with customer support or they way they treat past problems but regardless I play mainly MTTs and the schedule is very good. Plus on thr freeroll side, 5x a day they offer freerolls where the top 7 get a ticket to the Saturday 1k and the fields are usually between 250-400 so I do play a lot on JUICY. I really wish the min withdraw wasnt $500 as this is baller money for someone like me LOL. Took me a while to like the Version 2 version but I have also gotten to like that also, as for the longest time I was running ver 1 on other revolution skins
