Smartphone players

      Pokerstars is currently displaying a symbol in the corner of a player's avatar if they are using a tablet or smartphone to play.

      Maybe it's just me, but I noticed that these players tend to be a bit more loose and fishy than usual (at least at the micros). Did anyone else notice that?

      That would actually make sense to me. Playing on a mobile device is a very casual way to play, so I could imagine that this way of playing mainly attracts recreational players. It's also, as far as I know, impossible to multitable on a smartphone, making it even more unlikely to be used by serious players. Furthermore, those players are probably less concentrated because they tend to have more distractions around them.

      So does anyone else believe that smartphone and tablet users tend to be weaker than most "traditional" players? If that's true, that could help our hud-less players getting a better read on their opponents.
