This is a discussion on Choosing the best table. within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; What do the numbers seperated by a "/" mean when choosing a cash game table? Starts with there is usually three numbers. Looks like 0.13/28/65.
I logged in to Sportbetting, but I don't see where the slashed numbers you are talking about are. The cash games are in a table on my screen that shows name, game, stakes, # of players, # on wait list, Average Pot, P/F (which I think it percentage of time players are seeing the flop), and Hands per hour.
My best guess is the last three items are the three you are talking about.
Can someone please explain how using these numbers help in picking a table?
The site I play also has
Hands per hour
average pot size
% flop seen
And how long are these numbers tracked for normally?
Hi. Well a high % flop seen and a high average pot size means people are playing looser and are not afraid to get money in. That is usually a good thing for you. Depending on the site/stakes if the % flop seen is in the high twenties or above range that's usually a pretty loose table.
For the most part it's less enjoyable to play on tables with low % flop seen and low % average pot size as it's usually pretty nitty - passing blinds around. Though sometimes you can do OK on a nitty table stealing blinds and playing aggressively (sometimes not though).
Hands per hour is kind of a personal preference, some people cannot stand to play on slow tables. If slow action tilts you stay away, otherwise the other numbers are more important.
