      Well i use the vpip 20% + filter along with the players + filter and then easy seat to sables, add 4 tables every 30 mins till @ 24.

      How else would you use the filter?

      Also there is still bound to be an optimal time, if anyone knows this?

      Hi guys,

      Just moving this thread to the relevant board.

      With PokerStars being the biggest online poker room right now - there should always be plenty of players online.

      Have a great weekend,
      Gary

      I know, I know but i am looking for the BEST time. even if it's a small time frame and it's not alot better then the other times.

      Is it true more people online = better?

      hi Vip3rNZ

      i have found that any time after ~5pm is a good time. i use the same filter as you but obviously the higher the PPF and avg.pot the better :)

      and i can only say that while more players would = more fish, it would also = more sharks especially on pokerstars

      Very true - and by 5pm this is BST (British Summer Time) or GMT +1

      Thanks everyone!

      So if I'm in New Zealand and we are GMT+12 best time for me would be 4AM?

      I'd complain about my country being bad for poker but at least I'm not in the USA!

      yeah probably any time after then too i would say. many players from europe so when they come home from work and chill out to play is a good time.
