Assessing a table
How long does it take for you to decide whether a table you've joined is worth staying at.
Table selection for me is quite minimal, usually just use the % of players to the flop as a guideline. The limits I play at pokerstars
means that I don't have prior information about many of my opponents, so usually give it about 50 hands or so before I can assess whether the table is good or not?
Is this too long? Am I sitting at a table losing money for not leaving the table sooner.
What are people's general credentials on assessing a table?
I usually want to have position on at least 1 fish, and try to stay away from any aggressive people directly on my left.
After you sit at a table, what processes do you go through? Nothing too hardcore, it's only 5nl, so I'm not going to be studying a table for a few orbits before sitting down with bona fide notes on everybody, even if that is the best way!
