  • 66 hands

    That's the number of hands per hour shown by a little research. I knew that 30+ was the average in live games, but I had expected on- line games to have a higher average.

    Time is another thing on which I have been doing som figuring. Maybe you can help. If a tournament starts with ten full tables, and on each table there are two players who each use their clock in such a way as to add ten to fifteen seconds to each round of betting, what will be the approxamate time added to the entire tournament?

    Because the blinds increase on a time-based rather than turn-based interval, and because the length of a tournament is generally determined by the blind increases, players hitting time shouldn't have any effect on the overall amount of time it takes to play a tournament.
