What i have noticed . Is that alot of players seem to take 4ever 2 lay thier bet. With 10 players on the table, by the time it comes 2 them . Knowin thier cards and what hand they have and what could b out . Why do they get the clock 2 start countin them down. Then just b4 zero comes , they check . Are they hoping that the longer they take , mayb the cards will change . Or lookin up thier book; HOW 2 PLAY POKER & HOW 2 BET. No i am not refering 2 the whole table . From about 5th possition your mind should have been made up

Sometimes it's a simple bad connection, other time I'm sure people are trying to use devices. On the reare occasion they are slow-playing to try and let other people get knocked out before them if they are really close to a paying position, and other times they are actually thinking. Probably in that order, but really we'll never know. I just know how long it takes people sometimes in the casino. SOmetimes it's just grandstanding other times they just are not sure. I usually say to myself, " If I still don't know by the time it comes to me, then I should throw them out, unless I'm deciding how much to bet ;)

I think a lot of it is people beleiving that the delay will convince you it's a marginal call, when in fact it is a fairly reliable tell that they have (what they believe to be) a big hand. Just ride with it.

Just so you know, The stalling move is usually made by players who don't have confidence in their skills and want to wait their way into the money. However, once in awhile a decent player will do this to piss off people at the table (this just happened to me) and try to get epoepl off their game. Just warning ya, L8r, Gbu, WG

I have seen that alot on Absolute Poker. I find it mostlyto be either a bad connection (56k modem), sometimes it is just players trying to run down the clock for an all in protection if the site has it. It is really a waste of time for the people that are actually there to play but,the ghosts are everywhere and online there is no way to stop them.

I love it when people get impatient online. Clicking the fold ahead of your turn, shows your tightness, if done continually. Quick calls often imply marginal or drawing hands. Point being that even though you can't see your opponents, little thing like how quick or slow they play replace the visual tells of a live game. If you get impatient and make snap judgements, you will not be playing your best.

you know what... Multi tabling is mainly the reason why!!! with online poker becoming the more and more hard to beat, serious player have to play more and more tables at the same time to extract a good enough profit to justify the time. If you ask me, I prefer to play 4-5 tables without slowing down the game VS 8+ but having to slow down the pace of the other players.... even if it means a few bucks less per hours... cause anyway you cant sustain the same BB/H playing 8 tables+ VS 5 and less...

I agree that it is mainly due to multi tabling, ie playing out one hand to the flop before calling on the next or whatever. But at the same time alot of people who multi table are also the ones making the quick folds, telling the others to hurry or typing zzzzzzzzzzz. And while playing more tables allows you to win more, it also leaves you open to lose more. Not at 1 table and 1 buy in, but over 5 tables and 5 buy ins. Currently, I am comfortable building my BR by playing 1 table, though I can comfortably play 4 games. I am also trying to develop some skills that would not translate well to playing multi tables.

it's because they have read somewhere that the speed you bet with is a read. so they decide to make everything equally slow.
