      On PokerStars
      Regular tables: 6-5
      Zoom: 2 and you will get close

      I have a feeling that iPoker tables are a bit slower, but not that much.

      Some one correct me if I'm wrong.

      The players on iPoker seem to like taking the full 15 seconds allotted before folding.
      It is excruciatingly painful sometimes.

      For some reason, they don't pre-fold as much either -- or it could just be my perception that is out of whack.

      But other than that, your numbers are about right.

      Hi, MykolasLT,
      There is no easy answer to that.

      First of all, how fast a game goes depends on the people playing.
      If you get a lot of slowpokes, even the best software will be slow.

      Another point is that the speed of a room is not a very important criterion for making decisions.

      If you are looking for a poker room to suit a specific need, read the first post of Choosing the right Poker Room for you! then reply with the information needed.

      Someone will reply with the recommended room.

      Best of luck,

      I have to say pokerstars, had experience with almost all networks, and ps as software is the best and also game-play is better than in other networks, but that just my opinion.

      For example on ipoker on other networks I just can't stand casino popups and etc.
