    wait until you see online or live satellite bubbles. Live, I've seen 3-4 hands PER HOUR and the longest bubble I've personally been in was over 3 hrs! Online, the bubbles can take 30-60 min or longer if the shorties keep doubling. Longest I've seen an online hand last... over 20 minute (and yes, I mean ONE HAND).. was at 15 min levels.

    I know if I'm close in them, I'm using every second I can in order to get someone else to bust first. You're crazy if you don't.

      ya i totally understand satellites and even big lie bubbles or online bubbles i don't mind that i am enjoying slower play then too but this was the first hour the very first hour of a free roll tourney, its ridiculous some of them only had 1% connection and some where fantasising about donuts lol also on a side note no-one can suck out like the russians can i honestly was thinking there was a deal made made 3 times in one day i was in against them with sets and they had a gut shut and other time they had a 1 outer and got there each time its amazing lol yes i know the statistics were balance out but still
