      The statistics i see are avg pot and players per flop, what is the combination of stats which shows the easiest or most profitable tables?

      I think one with small pots could be better because players are more passive and i hit my draws more often because of that. Anyway, i'd love some answers.

      Thanks.

      edit: hmmm should have posted in general questions i guess. but simply because i play NL2 and NL4 FR with BSS.

      as u said, players are more passive and u get more draws to complete, but who will pay u for ur draws? not the passive guys :D
      i myself prefer superagro donkey fish on my right.
      u should read this book [GUIDE] Essential reading for new players
      there is a article about table selection :)

      Try find a table where theyre both high so you have a high chance of getting paid wen u make a good hand.

      look for high players to flop and high $/pot.
      also look for tables that have many players
      with less than 100bbs, these are more likely
      to be worse players, as regs usually have
      auto- top up on

      Depends on the sites, for example when I play on William Hill I never use auto topup, because iPoker literally steal my money due to currency conversion.

      If you use HEM (PT3 might do it, no idea) you can see average VPIP and PFR of table. I also search for players I know to be fish, and average stack size matters aswell.

      I think I will recommend at high $ of Avg Pot, also High % to flop. Normally I will prefer to see High % flop, it is because of Calling Station and Fishes with wide open ranges made the % of Flop rises.

      Just my opinion.

      Regards and Good Luck at the table.

      In general the stats on some sites are slightly missleading or incorrect, there might have been alot of action or no action the last couple of hands and the number might change. Although in general I would say the tables with the most players per flop / avg $ pots are the most profitable. That being said, if you're not a massive multitabler you're prolly better off observing a few tables to find a superfish yourself :) Find him, sit on his left, profit.
