Default Softest games?

This may be the wrong place to ask this question, since I know most of y'all are very anti-limit, but I was wondering where you think the softest limit games are on-line? As far as levels go, I'm thinking $2/$4 to $5/$10.

The Party network's 2-4 and 3-6 games have always been soft. All of the iPoker network limit games I've seen (Titan, Noble etc.) are pretty soft as well. Stars 2-4, if you look for a juicy table, can be very good to you now that they advertise enough to rival Party for most players on any given night. Prima and InterPoker low-limit rooms tend to be pretty loose-passive, too - they make good targets. Just choose your tables carefully wherever you go and you ought to be fine.

Default it has got to be...

Titan and Noble are by far the softest I have seen yet for the mid to high limits. I really think that the 10-20 and 20-40 games there are filled with people that should not be playing above 1-2 period. The high limits also have a rash of players sitting with their entire bankrolls in play trying yo make a big score quick. I have been sitting at the 3-6 5-10 and 10-20 there since August and have only had to make one intial deposit of $50 bucks.

I've been discovering lately that the Full Tilt low-limit LHE (1-2 through 3-6) tables can be pretty soft too. They're not universally soft like Titan, but with proper scouting you can get into a very profitable game. Here's a tip: stay aggressive through the river with one ace-high hand early on, especially when you suspect you may be beaten. It's possible you'll still win the pot anyway, but even if you don't this will pay dividends. You can sit back and rake in the chips as everyone calls all your big hands down with crap because they think you're always bluffing.

I played a $1/$2 LHE game at Titan the other day and people were folding to raises pre-flop. I nearly fell out of my chair....
Seems like good agression could kill those games.

Do you spend any time playing limit on Full Tilt? I enjoy playing limit just as much as no-limit, and "TexansBaby" looks familiar.

I do occasionally find my way into a limit game, usually when I'm playing with friends. I tend to bleed off money quite quickly when playing low-limits online.

I can't really say I've seen even one limit game at the limits you describe that wasn't soft. It's generally easier live as well. 3-6 can even be trickier than 6-12 live because you have to outdraw so many people (and have like 6-7 people calling 3 bets preflop).

In my experience with $1-$2 and $2-$4 limit, Pacific Poker has by far been the most profitable for me. I quit playing them though after I had countless bad beats in a week.

Now that I'm practically playing exclusively on Titan I've realized how weak all of their limit games are. $2/4 and $3/6 are so easy it seems, not to not to put myself on a pedestal or anything, just saying how bad everyone else is.
