Online Poker – A Need For Speed

When you play Texas hold ‘em in a casino, you can expect to play about 25 hands per hour. It takes time to wait for everyone to tip the cocktail waitress, count out the chips for a bet, and of course, for the dealer to shuffle and deal the cards.

When you play on a free online poker site, you can expect to play many more – sometimes 70 hands or more per hour. When you add in the ability to play more than one table, you can see why the action junkies of the so-called MTV generation don't have the patience for a live game.
