Once you run a poker application you automatically get directed to the poker room lobby. The poker lobby shows all of the games currently available to play at that poker room. The poker lobby is normally split into sections, these section are normally cash games, multi table tournament and sit & go tournaments. Each sub section shows a list of tables available to play on, these tables normally have individual bits of information, and this gives you a better insight into how people are playing at each table.
If you are a new player and want to brush up a bit on your skills before committing real money to your poker account, you could always check out the freerolls tab on your poker lobby. From there you will have a selection of real money games that do not carry a buy-in giving you the chance to earn money without and initial financial commitment. For the more involved poker player, information on each poker table is a big part of picking the right poker table for you.
Each table will let you know the flop percentage, average pot size and hands per hour. These three things can help you to determine the right poker table to suit your style of play. However not all online poker sites currently disclose this information anymore, this is to stop “poker Sharks” from joining poker tables with lots of inexperienced and loose poker players, and trying to take all of their money.
