      tables I play on, MUST have at least 30% ppf. It may be frustrating but go watch a vid read an article until there are suitable tables available. Best thing to do is to spread your play over different networks, more choice = +EV

      The hardest part for me at the low limit tables is that the situation changes so rapidly.

      People leave, others join, and before you know it you're at 20% p/f.
      Is there a trick to get a good table, and keeping it that way?

      Leave table and find another good one? I'm changing tables non-stop.

      If there are a couple of decent fish, or one you have position on, then tables as low as 20% players to flop are ok... otherwise, yeah, if the table sucks, leave!

      And what about tight passive players? They are also bad players and that means it is possible to beat them, it just requires more time I think. Or is this unprofitable just because of rake?

      When the position is good - when I have fish on the right or on the left? Or talking about TAG - which is better - to have TAG on the left or on the right?

      You should keep lose fish on your right and if that's done, ignore other TAGs ;)

      remember easy rule: Money flow clockwise.
