A new survey by Paddy Power has found poker room and poker table ratings are pretty much equal.
But the Paddy power PokerStars ratings for poker tables and poker rooms are far more accurate than those of poker websites.
“We don’t have to go into great detail in our review to say that there’s a huge difference between the poker tables ratings, which are based on a combination of how often players are using them and how many times they’re used by each person,” poker industry analyst and former PokerStars CEO Nick Torelli said.
He said there was also a big difference between ratings based on how often people were in the room and how often they were sitting in it.
Mr Torellis also said poker tables were better at providing players with information than poker rooms.
Poker rooms also offer poker room-specific content, but there are no tables for those.
The PaddyPower survey, conducted from July 18 to 24, also found that Australians were more likely to play poker than their local peers.
And poker tables had a much higher proportion of people playing in them than poker clubs.
There were some differences between poker rooms and poker tables though, with Paddy ratings for PokerStars tables and PokerStars rooms showing a similar level of accuracy.
Some other interesting results include: Australians play online poker more than Australians play in-person poker.
About 18 per cent of Australians play poker online and 6 per cent play in person, compared to 4 per cent in-home poker.
Almost a quarter of Australians (23 per cent) play online, and about a quarter (23%) play in the same room.
Australians also play in a lot more tournaments than their British or Irish counterparts, which is why there are more players in tournaments.
Nearly a quarter play more than 20 poker games a week, and a third (31 per cent, or 28 per cent playing at least 20 games a month) play more in tournaments than in regular poker.
The latest PokerStars results also show poker tables have a higher proportion than poker halls and poker clubs of people who have been involved in professional poker for at least two years.
In-person PokerStars had a higher percentage of people in-house than poker venues.
But in-room PokerStars also had a lot of people at the table.
Paddy rated the percentage of players who were on-site in the top two categories of people on-screen at the time of their ratings, with in-houses being the top category and rooms being the second.
Online PokerStars, which has had more than 500,000 players play in less than two years, also has more people playing poker than online venues, which had a smaller percentage of in-players than venues.
Pappy rated the percentages of people online and offline at the same time.
It’s worth noting, though, that Paddy did not include poker rooms in their analysis.
PokerStars is an online betting platform and has about 1.5 million registered players.
It is also the leader in the poker industry.
