While Pokerstars is the undisputed king of online poker, it does attract higher level players from whom it is harder to win money. Also the popularity of the site makes it a magnet for those players who like to multitable which can drastically slow down the action at a table if they are too slow to respond to their turn. This issue can be avoided by joining a table with a fast action setting or playing the popular "Zoom Poker" variant where there is no waiting at all between hands. As soon as your hand is folded, BAM, you are transported to a new table all ready to go with a new hand. Online poker ON STEROIDS!!..

Video of Nononoko, an experienced poker player doing multri table action on PokerStars.  Poker is a fast action game but if you are playing a full table, when you fold, there is nothing to do but twiddle your thumbs till the next hand is dealt. Multi tabling takes care of that for you. You will have your hands full at all times. For experienced players only!!.
