In order to improve your poker skills, you need to choose the strongest opponents. This principle applies to any competition, and poker was no exception. Indeed, while playing against a more experienced opponent, you will be able to learn various techniques and you will also be motivated to improve your game. However, gaining experience in this way can hit your bankroll hard. Indeed, the game against the strongest opponent involves more frequent losses than wins. Therefore, not many players choose this path to improve their skill.
For the most part, poker players are looking for rooms in which weaker opponents are gathered. And although playing against them will not be so fruitful in terms of improving skills, it will certainly be more profitable in terms of income. Therefore, if your initial goal is to earn money, then you need to look for rooms with fishes.
Which rooms have the most fishes?
When searching for a poker room, players consider many factors: company reliability, attendance, software usability, rakeback size, bonuses and promotions, a variety of disciplines and limits, etc. For each player, these criteria are of different importance. For example, for a grinder who plays 10-15 tables simultaneously, high attendance at certain limits and the support of the poker tracker room are important. Beginners are attracted by bonuses and promotions. However, all categories of poker players are interested in playing against the weakest opponents. Therefore, field strength is a key factor when choosing a poker room.
So, in what rooms is the weakest opposition? A lot of fishes are gathered in Asian networks, because poker there has just recently began to develop globally. Therefore, Asian players are not yet experienced enough. In addition, Chinese poker rooms are often visited by recreational players who play poker for entertainment. American networks also boast a relatively weak field. Wealthier US residents can afford to lose significant amounts of games. There are also many fans who consider poker the same gamble as roulette or black jack.
Recently, many networks and rooms has begun to focus on recreational players. To do this, a number of changes were made: HUD is prohibited, anonymous tables are introduced, the rake distribution system is changed. Because of this, regulars are leaving poker rooms, as a result of which the field strength is reducing. This article provides an overview of several similar sites that don’t support HUD but are still of interest due to weak opposition.
Some poker rooms combine several gaming areas: poker, sports betting, online casinos. These rooms also boast a weak field – a lot of fishes go from poker rooms to casinos and bookmakers. Closed poker reservations in certain countries are also of interest to poker earners. PokerProDeals managers will provide access to such reservations, as well as to private clubs, where you will find a large number of weak opponents.
Below is a brief overview of the networks and poker rooms with the weakest fields.
