      No timebank is the worst part of it.

      I only play 5nl Speed and it is soft, typically 12% - 16% players/flop

      Traffic at 5nl is usually around 250 - 350 players of which a small portion are on more than 1 table.

      Traffic is less as you go up the limits, but timing is essential. Currently 09:00 GMT 20nl Speed has 50 players and 50nl has 65 players.

      Obviously at peak times 18:00 GMT onwards there are more.

      good luck

      nl20-50 speed usually has on average the same traffic, slightly less at nl50....

      around 100-150 players at peak hours
      around 50-80 players at like 01:00-09:00 gmt,

      but even at off hours, you can still play 3-4 tables comfortably

      NL100 only has about 50-60% of nl50 player pool, and there is pretty much nobody on nl200 speed tables, usually 0-1 guy sitting at the tables or very rarely there is like 6-7 players and there is 1 table running but thats it

      the thing that sucks big time is the lack of time back, often u just cant make a correct decision given just the lame 10 seconds, its impossible

      oh yeah, and support sucks, they just tilt you every time u chat with them...

      but the player pool is pretty soft, once you get used to the annoying mss'ers

      Hey guys , Very thanks for replys :) I still thinking where i have to move , maybe i have to play some normal tables on other poker room , because i like to think sometimes 30sec and more.
      I think 10sec on speed poker isnt enough for me .

      I think you will be fine playing 2 tables of speed. I wouldn't recommend more tables to anyone trying to improve their game.

      played about 35k hands of speed. Players are pretty bad but there's lots of shortstackers and traffic is way worse than for zoom. You'll quite often have to play 3-5 handed

      Hey guys,

      I've moved this to a more relevant board :)

      What is the best advice for people playing nl5 without a hud, besides getting one?

      Also, how do you stay at the table when you fold, so you can see a possible showdown?
