Poker Stars and Full Tilt?? Too Big!!!
and Full Tilt Poker
are the two major poker rooms online, they both have, excellent tournament schedules, fantastic promotions, excellent online events... you name it they got it...
BUT, there is one thing which some find as a plus and some find as a negative.
I play mostly Multi-Table tournaments and Sit and Go's.
My problem with these two poker rooms is they just have way too many players, and it makes for very long winded MTT's, especially for small stakes.
On a sandard average traffic poker room you are looking at around 100-300 players in low stakes guarantee tournaments which take around 2, 3 or 4 hours to finish, however on the above poker rooms you could quite easily be playing against 1,000's of players increasing the time of the tournament up to 6, 7 or 8 hours. Now I feel this amount of time to complete a $2.00 MTT, is very long.
My question to all is: Does very large player traffic put you off poker rooms?
Before answering please bear in mind the following:
1. Large player numbers = less updates (due to the fact that they dont need to attract more players) this explains why Poker Stars software is outdated, and to some can be quite ugly.
2. Lower hourly rates for MTT players (due to high numbers of players in MTT's).
What are your thoughts?
