      best table
      - high flop seen % & high pot size
      - high hourly hands rate
      - high % of big stacks

      The problem is that a high flop seen % will result in a low hourly rate. High flop seen % is more important.

      At FL it is not important to watch for many fullstack players. :)

      I also look at pot size, but I avoid the tables with VERY big average pot size. This is because at those tables, usually there is an awful lot of preflop raising going on, and I hate that :)

      terrorblade, he means that the more players see the flop, the lower the amount of hands / hour. Makes sense, no? ;)

      OK I've just figured it out, table selection is not important, just play in the evening :D

      Evening players are just easy :P , made a bundle right now.

      Good luck at the tables!

      GMT of course. That's where the Canadians start playing. It will get better and better until 0-3 am GMT where the most Canadians are online. (Sorry at all PS.com Canadian players. ^^)

      I meant my evening, thats Greenwich time, but I've also seen that there are a lot of bad players at one point in the middle of the day(Americans I presume) but I'm not sure what time that is and I'm usually not home then.

      it's in the early afternoon, around 13.00-15.00...
      I don't really have a clue where they come from though...
      Since it's a strange time to play everywhere..

      I don't really know how they compare to the late-night fish, since I can't really play at that time, but it's hard to imagine that they can be any worse...
      But on the other hand, if there's one thing I've learnt from poker is that human stupidity knows no bounds.

      See the problem with this sentence cirith :D

      It's like saying the problem with slowplaying is draws. Slowplaying is more important.

      I don't see a problem with that. These two sentences have to be seen separated.

      The first says: A high "flop seen %" results in a "low hourly rate".
      The second: So when you look out for good tables then first go for "flop seen %" and if there are 2 tables with the same "flop seen %" then go for the "high hourly rate".

      Maybe I just forgot to explain the second sentece more but the main idea should be clear?
