I was a member of CR before I joined up here. IIRC CR used to require some kind of deposit or signup fee in addition to the montly fees.
But yeah I like here much better. There's vids on just about every game type, as well as so many different aspects of theory. Also the coaches here regularly participate in the forums, which is a huge plus.
I've tried a number of different sites too and have to say that the customer service here at DC is far, far better than at any of the other sites I've looked at. If there is a problem here, Entity or Joe Tall seem to be on it in a flash whereas some of the other sites are really bad. I even had to point out to one site that their website had been down for over 6 hours at the weekend.
I also agree that the fact that the coaches participate in the forums and in the video threads is a huge plus point.
I do think that some of the other sites have great videos in areas such as micro stakes NL but for the theory side and the range of games covered, DC is my favorite.
2+2 is priceless, and good for free videos. If DC gave out one free video token or w/e to its members weather paying members or not. That would be a cool thing.
DC do that. Different videos are free to watch from time to time, they announce it on the Facebook/Twitter page.
It is really very good overall, I also go on DTB sometimes, it's okay. I used to play alot with BlackRain, I like reading his stuff and his videos. This site(deuces) is probably the most value for the money you pay among the poker sites, I got my membership at DTB for free though. A lot of smart people on here.
