    Why do people play with shitty books?

    I see all these no/slow pay complaints about X book on this site. I just cant understand why people dont play with A or A+ books.

    Sure, maybe some people dont know about SBR until they get screwed, but COME ON.

    This is your hard earned money here, a little research is usually a smart thing...

    I didn't know about this as I always played locally. IMO there is no reason to ever play online. I'm trying to make sure nobody deposits money into these books at all. IMO any offshore account will be closed at some point.

    A lot of people play at the mid-grade books because they sometimes offer nice bonuses. Not to mention slow moving lines. I personally can't blame them for doing so if they do there homework on the books backround. However, even if you do that it's still that risk element you have to factor in.

    Bonuses are a main factor as well as the lines as BBD mentioned.

    A number of those A/A+ books tend to be relatively sharp books. It's not uncommon to find better lines elsewhere (B and C books...)

    Bonuses and the ease of depositing makes the bottom books attractive.

    Ya, I guess that is fair...

    But is it really worth the risk of not getting your money back? I dont think so...

    Whats the use of weak lines and juicy bonuses if you wont ever see a penny of it?

    Rarely get stiffed by a book. Some just have higher/lower degrees of hassle/bureaucracy to get paid

    Not everyone is designed to engange in endeavors of this nature. Now with that being said, I can't say it surprises me at all sir.
